Very recently the MVS Volvo Forums have gotten questions on how to value 850 Rs. Insurance companies and “blue books” are decidedly unhelpful on this topic because the 1990s R cars are outliers — meaning the number of the R cars produced is too low to generate good data. Plus these cars are special to Volvo enthusiasts, and therefore carry valuations that aren’t easily calculated. Anyway, here are the forum posts:
Reason I ask is because I recently totaled mine after an old man decided to turn in front of me in an intersection. Progressive only offered me 2800 for it and I’m waiting on their second valuation. I’m also contemplating whether or not I should go the appraisal route for proper valuation.
Nada says clean retail is 3675, I’m thinking about $2500, too high? too low?
Thanks for any advice.
