Thats not that far from me.
auto. early XC70. just say 'no'
If you figured an easy way to put old 4sp auto in these you would be rich.
i should tell mum... she wants a red one but for that kind of money you could get the thing resprayed and still be well off haha
Wear rose tinted glasses
Save money for a gearbox??
yeah we arent that stressed about the gearboxes, mine goes alright 95% of the time..
although i havent been driving the car since i got it back from berry's. It's sat in my driveway for over a week virtually untouched... Thing is absolutely disgustingly filthy.
Gearbox rebuild with the updated software is 3.5k
As long as you just put that money to the side and are willing to live with the idea of spending it
Its a good car for what it is
I know I really liked mine while I drove it
even with a full box rebuild at that price, you'd still be getting a decent car for the money haha
For sure. A white XC70 always looks good. It'd have to be a really good example to justify the potential risk.
I take it converting one to a manual is just too difficult and expensive?
I wouldnt do it and there was a sub-$5k manual one listed earlier too, so they are around. Its just a question of 'Why would you buy something with almost certain knowledge that it'll fail when you can buy a manual one?'
Heino sold off his manual, maybe they aren't crash hot either?
are the later ones of these any good? 2005-2007? Surely the auto box' was improved by then?
