Rust repair is no more complicated on a Volvo than any other car. How bad is the rust issue on the car your looking at? I personally would stay away from one that has a fair amount. The amount you see if only a portion of it, and it can get expensive, labor wise to repair.

Floor pans gone; spare tire holder bottom gone. No headliner, dash cracked and shrunken, etc, etc. We were gone. I told my son if the owner would give us a $1000, we would take it. Thanks for your advice Tom.
