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:

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

They gave me the VIN, it IS the same car.

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.
Seats had to be dyed, they were so worn out.
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.
Also at least one side had to be painted, (LARGE dents and scratches).
Car was trash city
