i bought a car
    #11261231 - 10/16/09 06:49 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

a 1991 volvo 740 for 600 bucks. its in pretty decent shape for the price, has 160,000 miles on it. now all i got to do in get it registered, insured, and an ignition interlock installed and i can drive again. :thumbup:

looks pretty much like this one. same color even, just not as nice.



im broke as shit for the next few weeks which sucks, but at least i blew it on something productive this time around.

thats what i hear. reading around online most people talk about them running up to 4 and 5 hundred thousand miles if you take care of it alright. it needs a few things, the tires are in pretty bad shape, needs a new coolant overfill tank, and a radio... but ya, im happy with my purchase. its going to be a while before i can actually drive it though. need to get some more money to appease the dui gods first.

Good car for a good price. That Volvo probably still has some miles left on her. I had a friend in college who had an old one with 500K miles on it - she still ran great.

but then again you're mouth can smell like a corpse from an infected tooth and possibly while unlikely, kill you.

Looks like you bought it just in time to start sinking money into it.  I dont care how well engineered a vehicle is, 160k is a lot of miles.  And it is foreign, so parts are expensive as fuck. I guess for 600 bucks you cant go wrong... That is until the timing belt snaps crushing valves(unless its a non interference motor) or the tranny shells.  Then you better have some fat duckets for parts/repairs....  Those sweeds can build a car though..  Like others have said, keep the maintenance up and you should be able to get around 200k before it goes to the boneyard.. That is a few years anyway... Drive the wheels off of that bitch, throw it in the gutter and go get another..  :taxi:

Hiya,

I bought one of these a month ago.
1996 VW Transporter Diesel Injection



Still paying €100 each month as pay-off to the previous owner.
It has 227000 kilometres. Same here, was and still am pretty broke after purchase. But i'm very happy to be on the road again.

Hope all goes well, take care and don't 'drink 'n' drive'!  :whatdoyouthink:

ya thats pretty much my plan. ill get what i can out of it, but im not planing to dump loads of money into it to keep it running if things start to break. if it lasts me a year with out any major problems ill be happy, anything after that is just a bonus. eventually i want to get a truck.

No way. Just three more... At the garage they said it was looking good for the mileage, so i hope to get 300000 km out of it. Wishfull thinking...

PS: That pic is NOT my car just similar.
