Surprise Mileage 94 N/A 850

Post by Mstrshkbrnnn » Sat Jul 27, 2019 11:50 am

I have a 94 N/A 850 that i bought a few months back for $400 because it didn't run.all it took was a battery to get it running. As you'd expect, I've spent money on quite a bit more since then, but I don't mind at all because I've fallen in love with the car and Volvo's as well. When I bought it, the odometer was broken at 187k, and previous owner said it was probably closer to 205k. It definitely shows it mileage in certain aspects (headliner is almost completely detached, all mounts are shot and make the car shake like a mf) but overall I thought the car is in pretty decent condition considering I believed it was at around 210-215k since I've put quite a few miles on it since purchase. I came across a video of Rob's showing how to check actual mileage, and I was GREATLY surprised when my correct mileage flashed out. The flasher read out 287,444. I'm even more in love with the car than i was before. She just keeps on going.
:D :D :D
