1998 S70 T5, 207k, very well maintained ***SOLD***

1998 S70 T5
Nautic blue/charcoal
207,379 miles

I have owned this car for over almost 4 years, and I have put on just over 40k miles over that time. I have records dating back to the previous owner, so around 7 years of maintenance records. This car has been owned by Volvo enthusiasts and it's been well cared for. The car is mechanically sound with no cel codes or any issues. My goal with this car was to have a stock, reliable daily commuter and it’s been just that. I use this car to drive back and forth to work M-F and will do so until it sells.

If I I didn’t just get a P2 I would’ve jumped on this immediately. Super clean and looks well preserved. GLWS.
