Hey guys! Picking up my new to me 99 Laser V70R at the end of the month. 122 pages of service history and was a Volvo Corporate car for the first year of its life! Can't wait to enjoy this car

Get ready for replacing axles and angle gear. I know of a low mileage set, want to preemptively have me pick them?

Still, it's not miles (which is actually good), it's time.

Nice wagon man, congrats and good luck with it.

You guys being scared of 2000. Lol. Nothing wrong with a well maintained 5 speed auto. 203k and shifts perfectly. 5 speed is definitely better when comparing perfectly fine functioning transmissions.

Chris that's because it's YOUR wagon which means it's been maintained with OCD levels of care. Ben had to do the trans in the Venetian after all.

Wicked clean car! Maronha and I met the flippers at Carlisle and you probably did too.

Nice Laser...to say the least
As for 2000 trannies, ours at 144,xxxK miles shifts perfectly (with many flushes and/or drain and fills).
