2007 Volvo V70 R
2007 Volvo V70R - 300hp 5cylinder, AWD, Rare 6speed, Brembo brakes, 17" wheels, and electronic suspension. Cosmetically the 'R' model has a performance bumpers/sideskirts, trim, sport seats in a limited edition color, limited instrument cluster, and the famous spaceball shifter. This is Volvo's performance model in it's best iteration.
This is the final year of production for the R wagon. Only 345 were imported into the US in 2007, with less than half being manual transmissions. This car was purchased new and taken to the same dealer for it's life and I have records to prove it. I actually worked on this car when I was a dealership Volvo technician and had been waiting for years for her to sell it. Unfortunately, I am in need of a truck, and would consider it as trade toward a 2013+ Toyota Tacoma.
The timing belt and factory maintenance has been kept up to date. Since I've acquired the vehicle, I've done quite a bit of maintenance. It has all new 4C electronic struts/mounts (expensive), sway bar links, front brakes/rotors, spark plugs, and 5 new coils. The PCV breather box has been replaced. The alignment has just been done and the suspension calibrated.
The meaty Continental summer performance tires have 10/32" and it comes with an EXTRA full set of 'R' wheels with General snow tires also showing 10/32" of tread. The Haldex AWD system works well. The car has no oil leaks, but does use 1 quart of oil every 1500-1700 miles. It has had synthetic oil changes it's whole life, and has been garage kept.
The Volvo's exterior is in great shape, it has a couple of scratches on the rear bumper and a few scratches on the wheels. The interior is very nice. It has a factory dog gate, and rubber factory floormats as well as a factory carpet set that may as well be new.
It has been adult owned and driven conservatively it's whole life. Again, I'd love to keep this, but it's time for a nice truck. Feel free to contact me with questions and more photos.
