Today we're going wagon style as we bring you a 2007 Volvo V70R Ti.

Apparently it has been well-maintained. It has the Getrag six-speed automatic transmission and 143,000 miles on the clock.

Mods include BBS 19-inch wheels, fully adjustable coilovers, upgraded sway bars and lower control arms, LED lighting, and more.

Cosmetically, the car appears to have some minor flaws but nothing major.

If a souped-up Swedish wagon appeals to you, click here. The ask is $11,500.

    ". . .the wife has insisted on an suv for the kids."

    There's one reason I've been passing on kids. . .

    I don't see any mods that would drastically alter or compromise the car apart from the KW coilovers, and I'd argue they're a net win for the next owner. IPD is practically a surrogate OEM for succeeded generations of Volvo, so I wouldn't worry about parts from them, either.

    Honestly, I think if he puts his stock wheels back on, finished the 4C removal, and dropped the price closer to market value, he could have it sold in short order.

      Translation of what she means: "The low ride height makes me feel unsafe and high ride height would make me feel safer."

      I've had that conversation with my wife at least ten times, and it's gotten hard to argue against her point of view when there are so many lifted brodozers that put their bumpers at exactly head height in a lower car. Every time she rides in my 335i she points every one of them out.

    I want one of these so bad, in this color, and I'd even settle for an auto. Not *this* one, mind you, but a good condition carbon copy.

  • Jkross22 It very much depends on the dealer. Just bought a replacement for the CX9. A local dealer gave a $500 discount on a CPO car while another one gave a few thousand dollar discount but was out of the area and we had to drive 5 hours to get. The local dealer still seems to think it's 2022 and cars appreciate when sitting on the lot. I wish them luck.
  • Ajla "and the $34K price doesn't seem too steep." Respectfully disagree. This would be okay at $29K. $34k clangs into way too much.

  • SCE to AUX What a farce.Besides, "patriotism" has been redefined a hundred different ways in the last 20+ years. Disagree with one of them, and you're a traitor.And for starters, Jeep is a Stellantis brand with its HQ in the Netherlands. If this persistent myth about patriotism is ever cracked, the brand is doomed.
  • MaintenanceCosts I'm definitely seeing more dealer-level discounts than I did a year ago, but not a lot of lower MSRPs.
