Engine is in excellent repair ? see details of work below.
Powerful responsive turbo ? all service up to date.
Interior is plush with newer leather front seat skins and suede headliner.
iPd exhaust + anti sway bars.
Wired for iPod.
Well cared for its whole life, clean carfax.
original Columba wheels - straight and in good condition Hankook Optimo 727s ? 205-55-16 - good now but will need replacing in year
Non-smoker car. All work done by Volvo mechanics in my ownership.
The Not so Good
A/C does not work, evaporator needs replacing.
Antenna can get stuck in upright position, used replacement included. Antennae cut off switch installed on dash for use with iPod.
Some fading on engine hood is becoming apparent, car still shines but clouding.
Rear bumper has crazing in paint and some chips. Extra bumper available.
Front bumper has some chipping.
Car is extremely strong, great turbo, tight, excellent handling. It is stock except for ipd exhaust and anti-sway bars + small upgrades in engine equipment. Exterior has a few minor flaws as expected for an unrestored 20-year old car.
It is a joy to drive. I will be sad to part with it but I am upgrading to a xc90 so I can tow. I?ve tried to represent it honestly here. It is not perfect, but you will find few of this vintage as clean and tight as this one.
