2007 XC70 - Canberra repairable write-off $3k
So the simple story is that it is on the WOVR as a repairable but the rego guys here are busting my chops for minor damage and want a heap of paperwork to say that it really was only the rear bumper that was damaged.
I am in the hole for $3k so far for the car so ideally would like to get my money back if I could. I am still working a couple of options to see if I can get it over the line but I am at risk of throwing good money after bad at this point.
The car itself it a one owner before me Canberra car with a full service history and 140k on the clock. It is September 2007 build so really late in the run.
It has two new tyres fitted for the rego inspection and the other two are around 80% at least.
Just fitted a towbar and roof racks.
I would drive this thing from one side of the country to the other without hesitation. The only issue that I have found is that there is a Haldex error that I have not bothered to investigate as I was waiting to get the rego sorted first.
If I can't save it then the next best option would be for it to donate all the good bits onto another tired XC70. I have contemplated buying another shell to swap the stuff over onto but trying to find a late model shell is going to be tricky and I just don't have the time to do it at the moment.
