After finding two '00 V70Rs, they both were not in the condition I expected for he price. So for a few bucks more my wife said, why not look at a new T5 or XC. I test drove the XC and it was nice, peppy. I did a lap around the dealer's lot in the T5, it didn't have fuel and I wasn't going far. I am headed back in the morning for another test drive of the T5.<p>the dealer said either new car will be in the $34-35k range, not stripped down models. They don't have the color we'd want for the T5 in stock. They mentioned $6k was available with incentives...they might have mentioned a little less with the T5.<p>thanks

Re: '02 T5 what's a good price? (83caddy16v)

I'd say stick with the T5.<p>How much did they want for the used V70R's? And what kind of condition are we talking about? Those cars are like the best of both worlds, the powerful engine with AWD.<p>They should make the current XC available with the T5 engine IMO.<BR><BR>

Both were listed at $29.9 - but the Ford dealer with the silver one dropped to $28 on the phone. The Blk one had 43k miles and the silver has 49k.<p>Here are some picts of the silver one:<br><A HREF="http://www.icstew.com/v70R/index.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.icstew.com/v70R/index.htm</a>

I'd say go to the dealer with the V70R and try to talk them down. They might be more negotiable if you work at it.<p>Good luck <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

If you really want a T-5, why don't you consider an '03 T-5 through Overseas Delivery? You will be under $34K and for $295 you and a guest will spend 3 days in London and 2 days on Gothenburg. Excellent deal!<p>Yannis

Simple, you buy a car through the European Delivery Program and then you just buy (for $295) this extra "option". You fly from Dulles Int'l to Copenhagen and then to London. After three days there, you fly back to Gothenburg. After 2 days there, you fly to Copenhagen and then nack to Dulles. All this with SAS.<p>Yannis
