I paid $4500 for this car 13,000 miles ago. I put on new Yokohama tires, replaced all filters, replaced spark plugs, and replaced brake fluid. There are no fault codes, and two independent mechanics that I trust gave it a clean bill of health. Itís an 8 or a 9 out of 10 in appearance inside and outóPassion Red with black leather. Itís a hoot to drive, rust free, and shiny.
So whatís the problem? Itís got 265,000 miles on it. Spouse is worried Iíll get stranded somewhere. Thinks I should sell it before it hits 300,000 while I can still get some decent money for it. Iím thinking that even over 300,000 miles, it will be a good rebuild project for someone.
Iím new to Volvoís, so Iím not sure what would be the best strategy. Opinions and ideas appreciated.
