Due to an imminent W124, my Volvo has to go (my attempt at cleansing old cars from my life really isn't going too well).
Just over 173000 on the clock, MOT until June 22 and it's taxed to get you home. 2.5 10v, so non-turbo.
It had a major service a few weeks ago, and was treated to two new CV boots (which were the only advisories on the last MOT) and HT leads. In my breif tenure of ownership it has also had two new Marshall Mtrac tyres and new rear pads. I was going to keep it, until a certain W124 winked at me.
It drives very well, going through all four of its gears nice and smoothly and the engine is responsive and healthy.
The interior is in decent nick for the miles, and this one benefits from working front heated seats, cruise and a tilt and slide sunroof.
Cosmetically, again, for the miles not bad. There's the odd battle scar and ding but nothing too nasty. Most obvious is the cosmetic damage to the front offside of the bumper, and it's also missing a headlamp wiper.
"Antila" alloys are fitted to this one, which seem more desirable than some of other options.
The only other negatives are it sometimes splutters when you try and start it. My mechanic thinks it's the pin dropping out in the starter motor. It's always done it, and it's never not started.
There is no V5 in my (the DVLA cocked up the first one by putting the right address on it, but the wrong name, I sent it back and never got round to sorting a new one) but I'll go and get the relevant form for you, and it's no more hassle to apply for a new V5 than it is to send off an existing one these days.
There's no history, only what I've done with it. The seller told me the person he bought it from had lost the history - it was bereavement sale at one stage.
It really is a very comfy long distance barge, and a great work horse. I'll be sad to see the back of this one.
