about to buy a used Volvo. Need some honest info/advice

Asked by Mar 04, 2008 at 12:17 AM about the 1999 Volvo V70 T5 Turbo

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

  My husband is about to purchase what he thinks is a great find. It is a 1999 Volvo XC70 or V70 Cross Country AWD Wagon. I am worried we will make a mistake again (we bought a used car some years ago and it was a disater) This car is on a lot and the manager says we can take it to our mechanic and have him look it over. He initially said it would come with a 30 day warrenty but then later said he could make it 60 days if we were really interested. The car has 130,000 miles on it. The cost is $6300 including tags and tax. They guy said it had only one owner. It does "look" like it is in great condition but of course I now nothing about cars. The only think I have over my husband regarding this is that I am less impulsive and I have time to do more research. Please advise us if you can. If you need more info I can see if I can get it to you.
