Hello,<P>Thinking about a buying a '99 s70 t5 with 43,000 miles (manual, leather, cold weather, et al.). Price $22,700.<P>Why shouldn't I buy this vehicle? Is the price too high? Is the mileage too high? What does everyone think. Any common problems with the model year (t5)?<P>Thanks in advance!<BR>

I haven't heard of issues with the '99 T5, the '99 AWD S70s had several issues. Price doesn't sound bad. Miles don't seem overly high, we've got 31k on our '99 S70 GLT.<P>Is it Volvo certified?

You're in a similar situation as me. That's a pretty good price, but I'd haggle for a bit less on the basis that it's an manual. You can probably convince the Toyota dealership that it's less desireable! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>I'm looking for a '99 with similar mileage, but I want an automatic. I've found a few, but they tend to be bright red or too many miles for me. There's a certified '99 T5 near me that I might just go for. <P>

You should be able to haggle with them on the fact it's a 5 speed. They know it's gonna sit on there lot for a while. I worked at a Volvo dealership in Colorado and my 5 speed was on our lot for 134 days before I bought it. The manual tranny is really soft on the book too. Even though there price sounds like it's right at Blue book you can hit them back about atleast a $1k. The manual tranny will already be back of book about 3-4K. My 98 books retail at 22k adn wholesale at 17,100. I have a $1,000 hit for miles. My manager told me if he was to take it in on trade he would for about $13-14K
