I was thinking of just driving it back... and I'm pretty sure it was first sold in Canada, but I'm not sure. How is that more problematic? Guess I'll find out... xDI almost went though the whole rigmarole with a 9-3 turbo x. Depending on where the car was made first (if was first sold in Canada it is a lot more problematic) in order to get across the boarder the car needs to have the US EPA and the US crash test sticker. There's also a bunch of paperwork that you need to fill out before you get to the boarder. One is an EPA form and the other is a tax form I think. The boarder agent then starts another form at the boarder.
The buyer or someone with power of attorney for you needs to bring the car across.
http://www.volvotechinfo.com/index.cfm?event=info.recallComplianceStarting November 2019, Volvo will charge $1000 USD for issuance of the recall compliance letter. This is due to costs for vehicle analytical research investigation, and other internal vehicle validation processes, thereby allowing Volvo to issue the recall compliance clearance letter in a timely matter. Payment using non-US funds may incur additional currency exchange fees from your credit card company.
Great list of docs to get someone on the right track; thanks for providing this. Does the editable word doc you have spell out compliance for the S60 specifically? Sending you a PM.At the border IIRC you need:
The EPA form
The letter of compliance from Manufacturer
The Import form (I think it's form DS-7 or something)
Proof that you've made the required modifications based on what is called out in the letter of compliance
Bill of Sale (or equivalent)
Proof of ownership
