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...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

this is from...

http://www.autotrader.com/deal...ist=0

But when I searched for the dealer's (Kimbles Auto Sales) carfax on here...

http://www.carfax.com/used_car...h.cfx

...the carfax did not show.

If the dealer claims to have a carfax on all his cars he should have one on this Volvo.

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.

The site shows 89,912 miles and you say it now has 91K - is the seller other than Kimbles?

As to inspection - the usual stuff:

Collision damage.
High wear on driver's seat and brake pedal.
Non-Volvo trailer hitch (if any).
Current inspection sticker and current registration with clear title in seller's name.
Test drive with no problems and all dash lights work, etc.
Ask for a fresh dump of all OBD codes.
Be wary of no keyless remote or non-Volvo remote.

If you pass on this one let us know as your area has some very nice V70's on the market.

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?
