Hello!

I'm new to Volvo. I have couple of offers for old Volvos V50/V70. My question is: what is reasonable limit on mileage. I want a car that would work for me for couple of years without any big issues - of course one never knows what may come in future, but I believe there's some general advise. What is average lifetime of the Volvo? I mean car of the clever user, not exhausted car with regular maintenance? Would it be clever to buy a Volvo that has more then 100.000km/60.000miles? What about 150.000km/100.000miles?

Thank you,
Ivan

Hi, Our S70 Tdi has 265,000 miles on the clock and we haven't changed the clutch yet from new, or the exhaust. The one major thing that went was the fuel injection pump, about 5 years ago. Other usual things like cv joints and drive belts have of course been done. We always (for this car and any other diesel we have owned in the past) do oil and filter changes regularly - even more regularly than the manual recommends. Apart from that, we have used the old gal as a workhorse as well as for pleasure. Have bought a Renault now that we are in France - no comparison (although our son says it's got a much higher safety rating) We will still keep the Volvo (which I prefer hands down!)
