Hey guys someone is picking up my S60 on tuesday and i am looking at 850 T5, S70T5 and V70 T5 either way...i found an 97 850 T5 wagon with just around 90k miles on the clock. Questions, <p>a. how much life is left in this thing, b. what are some problem areas, c. does anyone have the Stage III on their car?

Thats not bad mileage, if well maintained its got a good 200,000 miles on it before anything major. <br>My 94 850 has 233,xxx and runs like a champ, considering i drive it like a straped ass ape.

Re: (JRL)

yep, it (stage 0) is first my list of things to do and suspension is a close second. my goal is to make everything as close to perfect as possible, and then later this summer/fall/winter i will be saving for the IPD stage III.
