Volvo V70

Post by FarmerPug » Sun Nov 26, 2017 10:01 pm

I got myself a Volvo, a 2004 V70 D5 with 47,000miles.

Just drove it back home, it averaged a touch over 44 mpg, i was impressed with how solid these feel but yet still ride really well.

Already been doing some estate car duties :cheesy:

Looks very nice, I love those seats - and with four spare wheels too. :wink:

YES!

Welcome to the club :cheesy:

That's a good find for sure. Lots of fresh oil changes will help, that's such low miles :shock:
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 a bit pampered, now lacking boostage, under investigation
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions, injured leg but now recovering from shock
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple, now with fresh MOT, no advisories

Well um i paid £4750 for it, travel expenses to get it home about £250.

Great driving car, feels like driving a tank and great seats. The problem is how i drive, 5 miles to work, 5 miles back home, 5 miles to the shed and 5 back home, on small roads where an automatic was least efficient, the trip computer was averaging 30mpg it ended up using a full tank in 2 weeks.
My uncle does more motorway miles and has a Mercedes C270 which is quite rusty and troublesome, so I've sold him the Volvo today and am heading back across to the mainland to buy a 406 estate, and a 2 post lift with the spare change :cheesy:

Frank,
You just can't get a better motor for the money :cheesy:
& you can't stay away :mrgreen:

On a side note its the economy or lack of it that keeps me away from a V70 D5,
I've already got a car with a drinking problem :lol:
