      A bit high considering it needs a clutch
      I paid $1400 for my 99 T5M in 2009 (so that's apples to apples). It needed a clutch and a radiator.

      Stick to 2005-2007s. Those are the last after the refresh and many issues were more or less solved by then. Obviously a 2007 would be preferable, but a 2006 is also fine.

      However, I forgot to add, if you have a real base V70 with manual seats, you need to check if your wagon is pre-wired under the seats.

      Original parts still on our R

      I really shouldn't say this but I just realized my black 2000 V70R is 20 years old! (built Oct. 1999).
      Again, this may give me bad luck but:

      The ETM is still ORIGINAL! (Lightly cleaned once).

      If it comes back up at idle and/or slow city operation, it's not a leak, but it's easy enough to look at the core just to be safe, just pull the carpet back to expose it.
