All,<br>First, do folks still run CARFAX's for those without accounts at CARFAX? I use to do that when I was a member of an e28 board...<br>VIN: YV1LW56D7X2546032<p>Second, the seller says he does not have proof of a timing belt change and it's got 91K. Anyway to verify without reciepts?<p><br>Third, anything I should specifically look for when I go to look at it?<br>Thanks,<br>Charlie

Re: Found a 99 GLT V70 in Northern VA I'm interested in but have a few questions. (C_in_MD)

Here is the statement made by the used car dealer on the site where you found the wagon...<p>-----------------------------------------------------------------------------<br>We have been in business for over 10 years All of our cars are State Inspected and Carfax certified. Our prices on our preowned vehicle are far less than our competitor.<br>-----------------------------------------------------------------------------<p>this is from...<p><A HREF="http://www.autotrader.com/dealers/dda/detail.jsp?ct=u&car_id=259961630&dealer_id=98415&car_year=1999&dealership_view_name=kimblesautosales&result_car_id=251731665&first_record=26&sort_type=make_modelASC&address=&pager.offset=25&cardist=0" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autotrader.com/deal...ist=0</A><p>But when I searched for the dealer's (Kimbles Auto Sales) carfax on here...<p><A HREF="http://www.carfax.com/used_car_classifieds/hotListingsSearch.cfx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.carfax.com/used_car...h.cfx</A><p>...the carfax did not show.<p>If the dealer claims to have a carfax on all his cars he should have one on this Volvo.<p>As to the timing belt - look on the engine for a sticker showing the mileage and date of the last timing belt change. If the car has never had a new timing belt the sticker should be blank.<p>The site shows 89,912 miles and you say it now has 91K - is the seller other than Kimbles?<p>As to inspection - the usual stuff:<p>Collision damage.<br>High wear on driver's seat and brake pedal.<br>Non-Volvo trailer hitch (if any).<br>Current inspection sticker and current registration with clear title in seller's name.<br>Test drive with no problems and all dash lights work, etc.<br>Ask for a fresh dump of all OBD codes.<br>Be wary of no keyless remote or non-Volvo remote.<p>If you pass on this one let us know as your area has some very nice V70's on the market.<p>George Dill<p><br>

George thanks for the information.<p>That's not the 99 I was looking at but I do appreciate the specifics regarding the timing belt sticker and obd codes. <p>If anyone knows of a 99 GLT V70 within a 100 mile radius of Frederick Md I would appreciate any tips. Preferably Black or Dark Blue with tan leather interior. Timing belt done, service history and both key fobs present. Factory roof rack or bike rack. <p>Thanks,<br>Charlie<br>

May take some time to find the perfect car but below is a look at the current market for both V70 and XC all 1999. Would you consider other years?<p>George Dill<p><A HREF="http://providence.craigslist.org/cto/1147479924.html" TARGET="_blank">http://providence.craigslist.o....html</A><p><A HREF="http://providence.craigslist.org/ctd/1145838167.html" TARGET="_blank">http://providence.craigslist.o....html</A><p><A HREF="http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/ctd/1148904734.html" TARGET="_blank">http://washingtondc.craigslist....html</A><p><A HREF="http://newhaven.craigslist.org/cto/1146566878.html" TARGET="_blank">http://newhaven.craigslist.org/cto/1146566878.html</A><p><A HREF="http://burlington.craigslist.org/ctd/1144699725.html" TARGET="_blank">http://burlington.craigslist.o....html</A><p><A HREF="http://worcester.craigslist.org/cto/1147050655.html" TARGET="_blank">http://worcester.craigslist.or....html</A><p><A HREF="http://nh.craigslist.org/ctd/1147421768.html" TARGET="_blank">http://nh.craigslist.org/ctd/1147421768.html</A><p><A HREF="http://nh.craigslist.org/ctd/1147631970.html" TARGET="_blank">http://nh.craigslist.org/ctd/1147631970.html</A><p>George Dill
