I started looking at cars yesterday since loosing my 960 to a timing belt. I called on this one partly b/c the ad was so poor. It's above my budget, but an interesting listing no less:<p><A HREF="http://www.townhillauto.com/Listing.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.townhillauto.com/Listing.html</A>#<p>It's black on tan, T5 stick, and only 61,000 miles. They are asking $10k. I don't know anything about the car or dealership, but thought I would pass it along...

Re: saw a nice '01 V70 T5M (kitebuz)

Well, that look too familiar.<br>Ask them if they bought that at Baltimore/Washington auction, if so RUN from it!<br>(I'm not going to go into details, way too many issues, IF that's the same car)<br>Sure looks like the one I bought and fought with them to take it back, I finally won out.<br>If the last six of the VIN are 037702....

They gave me the VIN, it IS the same car. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Sludge motor plus it stunk so badly there is no way they could get it all out without replacing all the carpets and the filthy headliner.<br>Seats had to be dyed, they were so worn out.<br>Needed control arm bushings, otherwise it didn;t run all that badly but it needs at least a Seafoam treatment to clean out the engine.<br>Also at least one side had to be painted, (LARGE dents and scratches).<br>Car was trash city
