Someone sent me a link to a free CarFax report tonight, so I figured I'd look up my old T5 out of sheer curiousity.<p>To my surprise, someone in PA purchased it on 3/29/06 with 19,795 miles on it. Not only that, but the CarFax is COMPLETELY clean! It even comes with a buy-back guarantee that it was NEVER a lemon.<p>How can Volvo NA do that? Seems a little dishonest to me, and I really feel bad for the new owner. As much as I loved this car, I wouldn't wish my exact one upon my worst enemy...<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

They did buy it back under the lemon law, though...This was, of course, after months of them denying any responsibility to the fact that my 7 month old car had been in the shop for 54 days... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

what were the issues on the car. I couldn't find your comments in search. I'm currently looking into similar routes.

What I would like to know is, did Volvo not disclose the history of the car, or is CarFax not doing their job <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0">
