Hello everyone,<p>I'm in the market for a new daily driver, and started considering a S60 R. I dont know much about Volvo's, but I do know that the R is a great car. I have a few questions I hope you all can answer... I'm familiar with the rules of Message Boards, so trust me when I tell you that I have already used the search feature <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Anyways, the car I am looking at is an automatic 2004 S60R with about 38k miles, and the dealer asking price is $13000. I know that the manual is much faster, but since this will be my daily driver (and I sit in a good deal of traffic) I'd rather not break my left knee/leg/ankle/foot/etc. <p>1. This value seems a bit low for the car, especially given the mileage. Bluebook puts it at around $15000 - assuming a clean Carfax, what do you think?<br>2. When test driving the car, is there anything specific that I should look out for (noises, leaks, etc.)? Any specific problems that I should be aware of with that model year?<br>3. Hows the reliablilty/maintenance? I'll be driving approximately 20k miles a year. Excluding regular maintenance (oil changes, brakes, etc.), are there any large problems that this model year faces? Again, I'm not familiar with Volvos, so any indication of their reliability would be helpful. <br>4. At what mileage does the timing belt have to be changed? How about the suspension - anything specific? Any issues with oil consumption, auto tranny, engine internals, bad turbo, drive shaft/differentials, etc.? <br>5. Can the S60R be serviced by a regular mechanic, or does it absolutely require dealer maintenance?<p>I've owned several turbo cars before, and frankly purchasing another (especially used) turbocharged car scares me a bit.<p>Thanks for any help you can provide!
