Two of our kids will be looking at a 160K mile 1998 V70 T5. Seller is a friend of one of their friends. They are looking at the car as a Boston winter beater, second vehicle, and transportation during releasing periods of their primary car. (they currently lease a Hyundai Elantra hatchback, lease expires in a few months, want a Cross-over, don't like any of the Hyundai offerings).
Car is advertised as having one bad front tire, a split CV joint boot, and intermittent ABS lights. I told them they would need to immediately put two new front tires on the car, have the CV joint replaced, then wait to see if these two repairs resolve the ABS light. If not, then the ABS light becomes item #3 to be repaired. Also an assortment of niggly appearance items found on any 20 year old car.
Only $2K price.
Any gotchas they should be on the lookout for, or any dire warnings?
