I was recently driving around my town and came across a dealership that is selling a 2004 S60R, magic blue with blue interior. It has 66k miles on it and i don't wanna go and buy it and have something go wrong. the paint and interior is in immaculate condition no exterior damage what so ever. Asking price is $15,995. If anyone would like to say anything or help me out with some information that would be great....thanks

I couldnt tell u what color it was then... i stopped in this dealership to look and see if they had a cobra mustang...and i popped around the corner to see this R...i didnt get to check the color name but in the sun it was dark blue almost black unless im color blind and it was black. The owner told me he just picked it up...he said it had 2 owners. im going to go back in monday to inquire more about it. Is there anything that i should ask him as you would when looking for a used R? The dealership has online website but the car is not on yet because it got there friday. heres the link ~ <A HREF="http://www.carsareuspa.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.carsareuspa.com</A>/ ~it may be up tomorrow sometime.

Re: (diablo2828)

If you want a black R in that price range (and potential for minimal service headaches), might as well buy this one:<p><I>"This R may be the most immaculate R as can possibly be. Not a single ding, dent or chip anywhere and not a single panel has ever been repainted, (including the bumpers)! The same goes for the leather, its absolutely stunning. It appears as if the passenger and rear seats were never sat in!"</I><p><A HREF="http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.jsp?ct=u&car_id=263793363&dealer_id=620704&car_year=2005&rdm=1246815391160&model=S60&num_records=25&systime=&make2=&highlightFirstMakeModel=&start_year=2004&keywordsfyc=__Ug,,__&keywordsrep=&engine=&certified=&body_code=0&fuel=&awsp=false&search_type=both&distance=200&marketZipError=false&search_lang=en&showZipError=n&make=VOLVO&keywords_display=R&color=&page_location=findacar%3A%3Aispsearchform&min_price=&drive=&default_sort=&seller_type=b&max_mileage=&style_flag=1&sort_type=priceDESC&address=17601&advanced=y&end_year=2005&doors=&transmission=&max_price=20000&cardist=39&standard=false" TARGET="_blank">http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/...false</A><p>Or here:<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120027" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120027</A><br>

Yea its def. black sapphire...i mean this car is mint on the outside....u can tell the seats have been a little worn in, but overall i checked this car out opened all doors under hood and everything looks really good...just dont know if its the right buy. Hey Rich if u see this post, the dealer that is selling this R i was looking at i guess called into Santo asking for service i talked to Jim and thats what he said. Is there anyway for u to find out if anything was wrong with that car?? Thanks<p>Its a 2004 Black sapphire

Some R's are fine, others are money traps. It's the luck of the draw. I would say, however, that the majority are not without at least ONE decently major problem.<p>If you're looking at a 2004-2005, do yourself a favor and get the manual transmission.<p>Personally, I think 66k miles on a 2004 for $16k is too high. Try to get it down $1-2k IMO.
