Vehicle is spotless inside and out. It has all scheduled maintainance up to date and some. Owner recently replaced the rad due too a tiny leak. No accidents, no rust. I'm used to getting rid of vehicles with this kind of mileage. I have only ever had domestic vehicles. Your candor is appreciated.

    Have a pre-purchase inspection done by a garage knowledgeable in Volvo cars, it will be money well spent, hat they find may divert you from buying a "bad car" and or what they find (lack of maintenance or repairs needed) can be used to negotiate price.
    Look at www.kbb.com and Craigslist for a comparable car and see if the car is good value.
