Miles, condition, options, etc... Would be very helpful to assess if it's a good value and what to look for!

On the mainland that's <U><B>WAY </B>too </U>much for a private party sale<br>Why would you want to potential expense of an AWD (problematic) in Hawaii, makes no sense?<br>If you're off roading, buy a jeep (or similar)<br>There was no gold special edition unless it's a Saffron colored one<br>I'm a dealer, I sell 98's with 90K miles and with a<B> WARRANTY</B> for less

Re: NEW to the VOLVO SCENE (dubdout)

For you being in Hawaii, the pickings are probably slim when it comes to finding a V70R, let alone ANY Volvo for that matter. (I was on Oahu for a week last year, drove all over the island, and can't recall ever seeing a Volvo.) <p>Being that this is a rare car to begin with and very rare in Hawaii, you really don't have much bargaining leverage if you were to try haggling on price.<p>Don't sit on this too long, as you'll only regret it and kick yourself in the butt if someone else were to buy it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Also, I imagine that all the ocean salt could have done some corrosion action underneath the car...just take a good look at it to see that it's been kept clean.
