Have ordered a '16 V60 R-Design (couldn't justify the extra $15k for the Polestar unfortunately) due November 30 and don't really need two Volvo wagons so am (reluctantly) listing my beloved '07 V70R GT.
Bought in July '11 off-lease with 174k km, this March-built, Canadian-spec caR was one of the last few hundred VRs Volvo built worldwide that year. Over the last very enjoyable four years, it has served as our faithful, and very enjoyable, daily driver to the extent that we put our own 174 k km + on the odometer.
Very well maintained (Volvo of Toronto) and thoughtfully upgraded (check out my signature and posts on the R sub forum) this runs at least as well as, and drives better than, when I picked it up. It now has about 50 k km until the next major service: timing belt, PCV, etc.
Everything works except the rain sensor, which I gather is an aftermarket replacement windshield issue. Aside from the regular 4C, etc. replacements, the only serious issue ever was a transmission failure this past summer (still got us home, but prompted acquiring our first new car [4th Volvo] in more than 12 years), which was replaced with a used '07 R unit - works great now.
Mechanically 99%+ (as IPD puts it "better than OEM" in several respects) vs cosmetically about 85% (just not one of my priorities, but gives any new owner something to lavish attention on.)
Am going to list it here for the next few weeks for C$8k, firm, to see if there's a good home. If not, we just might be a two-Volvo family for a while. PM me for serious enquiries only.

Any idea what the costs are associated in "importing" it to the US??

No tax/duties on used cars under NAFTA, but you need to pay state registration. Meets safety and emissions, but speedo is in kms only (there's a digital readout of mph). Ask at your state registration office, or a good auto broker.
