I have a 1999 S70 T5. <p>It has 105,000 miles. It's been a pretty reliable car. It's had less unscheduled repairs than my 2004 S60R! It's never broken down or left me stranded except for a blown tire..and that wasn't the car's fault!<p>I've replaced the following items since buying the car<br>Shocks - bilstein tourings<br>New radiator<br>New rotors/pads<br>Flushed tranny fluid<br>BSR cat back exhaust<br>Timing belt recently done also. <p>I do the oil changes when I'm supposed to, and even did a radiator flush the last time Ih ad the car serviced. <p>I'm looking into a new car, and have debated about keeping the S70 as a third car. I don't need three cars, but I could keep the miles off my R (make it last me longer) and drive the S70 to/from work. My S70 is paid off...and I figure it's worth somewhere around $5000? maybe a bit more, i don't know. edit - i just checked KBB and it claims my car, in excellent condition is worth $7000 as a trade in! wow..is that right?<p>My mechanic told me the car should drive great to 200k, maybe longer. If that's the case, I'll keep it, assuming I won't have major repair bills...<p>what is the experience on this board as to how reliable the higher mielage cars are if they are well maintained? will I have motor/tranny/turbo failures as the miles increase and what would that cost me?<p>aside from brakes, oil changes, timing belts.....what over major $$$ repairs should I expect to do if I keep the car up to 150 or 200k miles.<p>if the car is gonna cost me $500 here and there, I'd be better to get rid of it now, and put the $$ toward a newer car with low miles. If I can get a lot of trouble free miles out of the car, it might be worth keeping.<p>thanks.
