Hello everyone,

I sold my VR to a Volvo enthusiast yesterday. I wanted to thank the major contributors in this forum for all the advice, help and guidance during my short 10 month stint with my VR. I think without all of you I wouldn't be able to enjoy the car as much as I did. The wealth of knowledge and experience many of you bring to the table is what helped me work through some of the tougher issues I ran into.

Notably: P0089, SUM issues :) and the general maintenance items we have all grown to love and hate..

The V70R was a bucket list car, I remember test driving it when it was brand new (Summer of 2005 for me) I still can't believe the dealership let a 21 year old take a 2005 V70R 6 speed for a 2hr test drive... I'm very glad I had the opportunity to own a decent example of a V70R. It was a blast to drive and almost always got attention wherever it went (Cars and Coffee, Gas stations, Volvo Dealer etc). I will miss dearly, what I won't miss.. the turning radius!

I'm sure I'll lurk around here to get my SR/VR fix, but for now I'll enjoy my new-to-me 99' V70 N/A 5 speed! LINK

One last photo before the new owner took delivery. BTW, the new owner has four other Volvos and bought it for $7,000 with 203k , no CEL, no SUM issues, New Tires and a bunch of recent maintenance.
