R's scream "DRIVE ME". OK, some times they also say "put another angle gear sleeve in me" but afterwards they beg to be driven again.

There was a SR for sale a few weeks ago that had less than 10k on it - I wonder if someone on here bought it.

IMHO, you don't want a super-low mileage R. These cars like to be driven. My 04 VR with 83k is a very happy machine. :)...... of course, I'd take one if ya twisted my arm.

Ours is getting ready to roll over 75,000 in the next few days... when we bought it in April, it had 59,700 on it... yeah, 15,000 miles in 7 months... most of it pleasure driving.

I have to concur, these cars BEG to be driven. We put 250 on her today just driving around and going to get a Whataburger... (closest one is 100 miles from the house)

I agree, super low miles cars scare me.

In order for a car to be stored right while its not being driven it needs special care. It needs to be started, warmed up, driven around your yard some, all the gear in the trans gone through, forwards and backwards ect. Stored with the tires up off the ground to prevent flat spots ect. Almost no one does this as most average car owners are just lazy.

Lol really, is that in the Volvo handbook? Dude just cause you have a low mile car doesn't mean it's been stored for 4 years and you dont take care of it, in fact its actually the opposite of what your saying... Some people will only take the car out once a month for a Lil cruise, like myself.. Owning a restaurant also doesn't give me that much free time as I work 7 days a week no days off boys.. Well I do get them when I want but I have no scheduled days off..
