1999 Volvo V70 R AWD Silver (426) with charcoal leather/suede interior.<p>168,000 miles.<p>Automatic<p>Condition is Good.<p>Car is located in Santa Monica, CA (90404)<p>VIN: YV1LV62D3X2558192<p>In these times its hard to know what to ask for this car, considering that KBB isn't always parallel to what the real market is. KBB pricing for "Good" is $6,900. I'm not expecting to get that, I'm not here to be greedy. I will consider any reasonable offer. I'm going to put this on Autotrader soon also, so swedespeed has the first chance if anyone is interested.<p>I'd like it to go to a good home, its been a good car for me the past 3 years. I'm moving on to a used MINI.. something I've wanted to buy for a while and I have a chance to do that now.<p>Okay here are the extras that come with the car:<br>3rd row seat<br>17" Comets (they have some curb rash, but acording the dealer they are very straight<br>C70 Jewels and corners with HID kit. (I can remove the HID's if you don't want this, it is a bolt on affair)<br>Strut tower brace.<br>XC70 "eggcrate grille (pictured)<br>rear spoiler of course<p>I have the spare sets of headlights, extra set of floor mats (two extra sets), and a bucket of spare parts.<p>The good:<br>Dealer Maintained for as long as I've owned it. Volvo of Calabasas mostly. They know me by name there... sadly.<p>New Catalytic converter. That was $2100 at Calabasas Volvo. Just passed smog a month ago.<br>Registration is good up to May 2010<br>New Timing belt, Timing belt tensioner, idler pulley, and water pump (July 2008 157,000 miles)<br>New tires as of March 2009<br>New rear brake rotors and pads and brake fluid flush(March 2009)<br>New Alternator<br>New Battery cable (to the fuse box)<br>Drive Shaft was replaced before I purchase the car<br>Front struts replaced right before I bought the car along with endlinks<br>New Control arm on front right (July 2008)<br>New spark plugs (May 2009)<br>Lots of small items fixed or replaced with reciepts.<br>NO ENGINE MODIFICATIONS. I have never chipped this no have I fiddled with the engine to get more power. It even has the Volvo air filter.<p>The Bad:<br>A dent on the rear driver's side door. I'm pretty unhappy about this one, especially since it happened while parked in a parking lot. Door opens and closes fine, it is cosmetic only.<p>Long start, aparently the check valve in the fuel pump is bad, so it takes longer to start when cold or hot. This is an expensive repair for a small part. I've lived with it for 3 years and drives fine. <p>Left front balljoint (control arm) is a little worn according the dealer. I asked how bad, and they said it isn't critical yet, but in the next year it should be replaced. <p>I can't think of anything else. I am trying to be upfront as I can, because I know we're all in the same boat when it comes to used cars, and I hate getting burned.<p>Okay here are some pictures I took today. If you want any other pictures let me know.<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9685.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9688.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9689.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9703.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9709.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9710.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9717.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9718.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9725.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9726.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9729.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9730.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9747.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9742.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>The Dent! <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9746.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9749.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://www.alexbirmingham.com/V70R/IMG_9753.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Thanks for looking guys.<p>Send me a PM if you are interested and I'll send you my contact info.<p>Cheers!<p>-Alex
