      We got a CRV last year with the CVT and it is about the most uninteresting thing to drive but it's not my car. It also gets around 32 mpg just driving around town.
    2. I'm thinking addition for the time being and then...

      I'm thinking addition for the time being and then sell the XC70 at some point. It probably won't happen but that's the general idea.

      That's actually not that great of a deal. KBB has the private party value in good condition with those miles and options at $13-15k. This car would be a decent deal at $11k, depending on how much...

      This one seems like a good deal - l2016 S60 T5 Inscription AWD, 42k miles, $16.5k. I may go take a look at it this weekend. Not crazy about the colors but I like the cold weather package (heated...

      Could be oil change intervals. What's interesting is that the change interval in Europe is even longer than what we see here - somebody please correct me.

      My theory is that it's just the...

      Don't share this with the T-5R fans across the pond. They'd come over here en masse and stage a violent protest in front of that lot, lol,

      I was thinking just that - Spring and late Summer into early Fall would be the best times. There are distractions other times of the year like being buried under snow in the Winter, summer vacations,...

      With that TJ I posted above it does appear that the problem with the 5 cylinder motors is more widespread than the '12 and '13 motors originally thought.

      While there are lots of anecdotal reports...

      I sometimes wonder if there's any seasonality to BaT's business and auction results. Are there better or worse times of the year to be listing cars?

      The early XC90 V8 transmissions had valve body problems and it depends on what generation/year your V70 was because some had issues, some didn't.

      You might want to do a search of this forum and...

      It's interesting. Most folks doing engine swaps on these cars are doing V8 conversions -this one at least still has a Volvo engine in it FWIW.

      If it's stuttering at low rpms I'm wondering if there is a fuel problem or perhaps the car is out of tune. Have the spark plugs been changed on the car yet? I don't if that's supposed to be done at...

      I always get mine from my local dealer - much cheaper for small items like this, no shipping charges.

      Here's another example of excessive oil consumption on a newer SI6. I don't know if it's piston rings, PCV, valve guides, etc.

      I do. Sure, there were you're fair share of flakes out there but I generally had better experiences on craigslist.

      Here's a newer SI6 with oil burning issues. Apparently it's enough of an issue that Volvo has TJ in place to address it - replacing pistons and rings.

      Congrats.

      I recall when the seller was posting on here about what to do with the car.

      5 cylinder motors from '12 and '13 have a higher incidence of this issue but there have been reports, though not many, of this occurring on the newer 5 cylinder motors. The 6 cylinder motor is not...

      '94 was a changeover year for the 850. Midway through they went to the smaller headlights and revised bumpers on the naturally aspirated cars- all of the turbo's had the smaller headlights from the...

      The paint in the engine bay does not have the same finish as on the exterior and door jambs of a car - it's pretty typical of Volvo. I don't know exactly what the difference is as I'm not a...

      Given your options I would be running 93 or 94. I can only get 93 where I live and that's what I run.

      Yes, starting July 1, 2020.

      Bus drivers union is trying to get the new law thrown out because it makes it harder to identify cars that don't stop for buses loading kids. I can see their case and...

      Volvo is too small, it would never be able to compete with the likes of MBZ and BMW, which have a 40 year head start and deserved and dedicated following. Volvo's interest in performance cars to date...

      Yes, new bumper cover - happened to me on a Miata a few years ago and my state requires a front plate. Dealer replaced it no questions asked.

      As long as you're interested in a car with a heavy dose of electrification then Polestar will have a car for you for a price. If that's not your cup of tea then best to look elsewhere.
