Price: $2300

For sale is my 1998 V70R. I have had the car for 3 years and have kept the car up to date with replacement parts and care. The car has low miles for the year and the engine shows no signs of problems at all. I have changed the oil every 3000 miles with an OEM filter and Mobil1 10w30. Where possible, only OEM replacement parts have been used. The exterior of the car looks great for its age and has some touch-up paint applied however, it is a 17 year old car and shows age. The engine has been maintained meticulously and maintains OEM compression. The turbo is original and does not leak oil. The AC works flawlessly. Summer tires still have life but should be replaced next season. The car recently passed inspection in Massachusetts. There are no check engine lights/codes and the title is clear.

The car is a great runner and has lots of life left. It handles great with the working AWD system in-tact and is comfortable driving across country or daily driving. Selling as I bought a newer Volvo.

There are a few issues currently with the car that should be addressed:

Rebuilt steering rack is weeping slightly
Vibration at 65 mph on the highway – driveshaft was newly rebuilt but may be mis-aligned. Tires are not bent and have been balanced.
Ignition switch is failing but still works fine (doesn’t spring back)

I would like to get this car sold and have additional pics of the engine and interior coming. This car has been at Swede day and is in good shape. All issues have been fully disclosed.

The price is negotiable.
