Need Buying Advice

I am ready to give up my '86 GL wagon (my 2nd Volvo) and have been
looking at used V70 XCs in the 1998-2000 year range. I really like the
looks of that model better than any others
in that span of years. I would like to stay under $11,000 and would
absolutely love to have a manual tranmission.
The advice I'm looking for is specifically about that model, but I'm
open to suggestions
of other models that I should consider. Is there anything about the
V70 XC that I need
to be cautious of?
I live in L.A. and the car would be used for city driving only.
Thanks for your help.

Re: Need Buying Advice

I have to wonder given the price of fuel from here into the future, why
you'd want the extra gas drinking (4x4) capabilities of the XC if you are
driving around on pavement in a large urban area. Wouldn't a nice V70 with
traction control do as well for you, and give better mileage? The V70 rides
a bit lower (better handling), and wouldn't have the added expense of 4x4
drivetrain repairs, when they come. And they will. Just a thought, since you
asked...


cheers
