Tough call..whatever is the least expensive option..fix it or buy another...is what i would do...personally i'm into repair and recycle and reuse shit...so if it was feasable ..i would fix it...Good luck with that...
This recently arrived in the hood.
Hell I'd drive that.
Holy shit! That thing is a beauty!
I'm going to see about getting the trans fluid swapped. Didn't have much problem with it today, and I'm starting to wonder if it's my serpentine belt slipping occasionally on AC load, or the AC clutch slipping. It doesn't seem to happen (maybe?) if the AC isn't on.
I will look into replacing the serpentine belt and idler too.
Both are cheap, and if it is the transmission, I'm not out much time or money by eliminating the alternatives.
I printed this out for my favorite ex. She learned to drive in one of those, circa 1968. It had a straight thru muffler and would pop a little on deceleration. Lots of fun in the tunnel on Hwy 41 going into Yosemite valley.
Oh Volvo! I thought it read vulva. Cool wagon by the way.
Anyone need a front drive axle hub for an 850 or some XC70s? I bought two of these when I had one and only replaced the right side. This is new in box. Not OEM.
Cover shipping ($15) and it's yours.
Dang..If i didnt already have 2 960s ............Bottom drivers seat has been reskinned...the rest of it looks slightly worn but dayum..its a fine car!
Way overpriced but a nice car..What I like best is the blue wrap...looks bitchin'
Comes with the stock wheels...bummer
I had a '72 145. It was good in the snow and had great gobs of space within. It was pretty easy to work on, too...which was a good thing; something didn't work at any given time. Sometimes a non-functioning instrument would suddenly come alive, but something else would quit moments later. Though it never stranded me and served successfully for a little over a year, it was not very satisfying to own.
My son had a Saab. He loved it, but it didn't love him back. Perhaps my family carries a Nordic curse...
Saabs are the worst cars..I would avoid them like the plaque...Newer Volvos are prolly better than the '72...and by newer i mean anything up to 1998..the last year for RWD Volvos...
My 1997 960 and my '97 S90..(yes thats correct) the last '97 models became the S90 and 1998 was the last year for the 960/S90 model..
Anyway the Gold 960 has 250000 miles now and is damn near bullet proof..and my cherry S90 only has 90K original miles..is also a fine car to drive..and IMO are the best of all the Volvo rwds'
Anyone has experience with “15 or “16 s60 / v60? unfortunate accident totalled my “10 golf. I have tried a few cars and here is the thing-most have cvt transmission. No. Apparently, to get normal tranny, you need to go upscale shopping. Then it occurred to me I have never tried Volvos. So today I did. V 60- this car is nice! But not much info regarding reliability. What are they like long term?
Long term they will great. I’d scoop one up but they stopped making them in a stick. They have shit resale, so they can be a great bargain.
