What to look for on 2003 c70 convertable I'm considering biuying

Asked by Sep 07, 2015 at 09:20 AM about the Volvo C70

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

it has 97k miles and is a 2003, roughly 8k per year.
I don't know what to look for.
It's a decent price and i needed a zippy car. I drive a Hummer and want a
little car for change and low money, (i paid for the H in better times) Thisis
a very nicely maintained (visually) car. Never owned a Volvo. What to look
for?.
Any suggestions

As with any car repair costs in my opinion should be considered when purchasing any new car. Make sure it has a Car Fax, and have a mechanic that knows the brand car well look it over for you...

Yeah, ditch the Hummer- what you want to think about when buying any used car: "How was this car driven? Gently, like a grandma? Or trashed, like a teenager off road? How was this car maintained? Correctly like a good garage would maintain it? Or was all service deferred to me?" This is why I buy used cars directly from the owner- I watch him/her drive, and I ask for maintenance records-
