We've owned this car for several years now. Looks OK, but not the prettiest. Runs very well. 4 cylinder with turbo. Recent work includes some front end bushings, drivers door power window. On a recent trip to California my wife had some fuel issues (running out of gas about 1/4 tank). After taking it to a local Volvo shop it was determined that a fuel hose inside the tank that attaches to the internal fuel pump needs to be replaced. It works just fine until you get to about the 1/4 tank area. We've just been keeping it above that point. Other issues the shop noted was a leaky plastic piece on the Turbo. Turbo works fine, but could be a little more boost is the piece was replaced. Rear strut gas cartridges need replacing as one is not expanding completely. Interior is OK. Seats do not fold forward so no access to the rear seat area unless you crawl over them. Probably several other little things that don't come to mind immediately.

I consider it in fair condition.

Wife wants a Volvo hobbiest to maybe take it under their wing instead of selling on Craigslist. Thought I'd post it here first before looking at other sources.

Located near Eugene Oregon.

Wish I lived closer to Oregon! Looks like a great deal.
