Thought I'd pop this up on here before punting it off to ASM to be squished.
It's a 2002 V70 with the 170hp 2.4 naturally aspirated 5 cylinder petrol engine. It's got just shy of 125,000 miles on the clock & mechanically in good condition with a (clean!) MOT until 21st September 2018.
As you can see it is cosmetically challenged - possibly terminally. I don't know how this happened as it was parked, but it's been opened up by something large - I suspect a lorry turning into the pub carpark opposite to where it was parked. On the other rear quarter there is also a dent, which I was happy to live with.
I bought the car last September / October (can't remember off the top of my head) with 119k miles on it, so it's done about 6k since it was MOT'd. Engine runs lovely - it really is a great flexible engine to drive. The gearbox seems well - I did have the fluid changed and the adaptions reset not long after I bought it which made it a bit smoother to drive, and it certainly doesn't show any signs of imminent grenadation.
It had a set of front tyres and 4 wheel laser alignment done at 122k - no uneven wear or anything like that. Rear tyres have plenty of tread on them too.
The only mechanical area of uncertainty is the nearside rear suspension. It's clattery and noisy over potholes. Had several garages tell me that it's all OK. I had it into a Volvo specialist who thought it may have been the top mounts, so they got changed but it didn't make any difference. My MOT man says he can't find any reason that it would fail it's MOT on that corner whatsoever. I think the brakes have a slight wobble too, so might need discs and pads.
Everything electric works; aircon blows nice and cold, memory drivers seat works fine, interior in good condidion save for a bit of stitching on the driver's seat seam.
It'd be a shame to see it scrapped at least without some of the good bits on it helping some other cars out - but I just don't have the room or time to break it.
No tax and not insured at the moment, but will happily drive away with the rear quarter gaffer taped up.
Doesn't come with the numberplate, the actual reg of the vehicle is: OV52 HZZ
