Re: Looking @ at buying 2001 Coupe Advice? (zdsquared)

Was this a private sale or from a dealer? Little things like the service light being on can mean something as simple as an overdue oil change. And even after the oil is changed, the light will still stay on till it is manually reset.

This is a Private sale.<p>I Think the service light makes a sense according to the service sticker on the window it is about 200-300 miles over due.<p>some more info on the car.<br>2001 HPT coupe<br>Other problems Brakes a bit spongey and a interor rattle comming from the back seat.

My brakes are spongey and its a 2003 with only 15,000 miles.<p>I think the C70 brakes are bit a spongey compared to other newer Volvos. But they're quite effective! <p>I think it would be a great buy. You have to remember that the car still looks good and they're hard to come by (in good spec). If you keep postponing it until you find the 'perfect' one, you may end up missing the boat.

Token. You can't have a MY03 coupé! You can have a MY02 that's reg. in 03. But it can't be built in 03. End of story.
