1985 Volvo 245 GL
Up for auction is my Volvo Station wagon.
This vehicle has never let me down and currently my daily driver.
5 speed manual with the button for 5th gear.
It does have some issues though..
(PLEASE SEE THE SELLER'S NOTES FOR FULL DETAILS)
The biggest being the throw out bearing. It recently went bad, so now when you press the clutch to change gears, the car will vibrate.
Another thing to note is that, just recently as well, the drive shaft makes a clicking noise when you come to a complete stop. It may be related to the throw out bearing but I am no mechanic to tell you if it is or not. Other than that, it has been and still is a reliable vehicle. I use it everyday to get to work and back and roughly put in 30 miles a day. Although engine idles great, it is due for a complete tuneup. Will need a new set of tires but the tires that are on now will due for the meantime. This Volvo gets approximately 25 miles to the gallon and, to this day, has never leaked a drop of oil. Volvo passed smog, I believe in January 2012, with flying colors!
The 1st owner, although I have no receipts to back it up, told me he had the motor mounts and timing replaced a few years back before selling the vehicle to me in December of 2011.
He also had the vehicle painted gray, silver being the original color.
Everything on the dash works including the clock and still has the original drivers and passengers door plastic rack for papers etc. Passengers rack is a little cracked but in good condition.
I personally give the engine a 9, paint job an 7, interior an 8 and the exterior a 8 on a scale of 1 - 10, 10 being great.
This vehicle needs somebody that will care for her as she is not ready to go to the junkyard.
Please note that I will still be driving this vehicle on a daily basis so do expect the mileage to be a little higher than what it shows on the picture. If the reserve price is meet or you decide to Buy It Now, the Volvo will no longer be driven and will stay on my driveway until pick up day.
Thank you so much for your interest and happy bidding!

If Volvo's recent spate of cool-looking concepts is any indication, the Swedish brand has some great new styling on the way. But it takes time for new vehicles to come to market. In the meantime, Volvo is livening up some of its interiors with an updated Inscription Package on the 2015 XC60 (pictured above) and S80 debuting at the 2014 New York Auto Show.
Fri, 01 Aug 2014 18:15:00 EST
The Inscription models see mostly interior improvements with Sovereign Hide leather covering the seats and more leather for the instrument panels, seatbacks, center armrests and embroidered headrests. Inlaid wood acts as decorative trim, and there are plush, new floor mats. Exterior changes are limited to the choice of colors, namely Crystal White Pearl, Electric Silver and - exclusively for the S80 - Ember Black. The XC60 Inscription comes with 20-inch, ten-spoke wheels, and the S80 receives 19-inch versions.
The package's changes are fairly small, but it adds a certain amount of opulence to the models until the new Volvos are ready. Scroll down to read the full details about them.
You saw their US reveal at this year's Chicago Auto Show and read our driving impressions from Sweden. Now, if you act fast, you can actually own one of the very limited 2015.5 Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar models coming to the United States. The order page for these slick Swedes is now online, but the slots are filling up about as quickly as these cars accelerate.

Volvo plans to build a combined 750 of these Polestar models for the world, but the US is being allocated just 120 of them. Prices start at $59,300 for the S60 or $60,900 for the V60 (*plus a $925 destination charge). The only option is color - either Black Sapphire or Rebel Blue. If rarity is playing a part in your decision, you might want to pick the S60. According to the reservation site, only 20 of the sedans in each color are making it over here; the rest are V60s.
As the top versions of their respective models, both Polestars are packed with features. They share a turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine rated at 345 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque with a six-speed automatic transmission and a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. Acceleration to 60 miles per hour is claimed to take 4.7 seconds for the S60 or a tenth more for the V60 with a top speed of 155 mph. They are about more than just a hotter engine, though, with Öhlins shocks, six-piston brake calipers and 20-inch Polestar wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Check out the gallery for the full, official specs, and get to the order page soon, if you decide you need one of these limited Swedish sportsters.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this post indicated that the larger of the conventional diesel engines was a five-cylinder. However all three powertrains announced for the upcoming new XC90 are actually four-cylinder engines. The text has been updated accordingly.
Volvo rolled in to new territory when it introduced the original XC90 back in 2002, creating its first SUV and one of its top-selling models. But that was 12 years ago. In the meantime it's followed up with the smaller XC60, but what the brand faithful and the industry at large have been looking forward to most is the arrival of the new XC90.
Previewed by the Concept XC Coupe at the Detroit Auto Show, the new XC90 is set to arrive later this year, but to keep us on our toes, the Swedish automaker has been steadily trickling out a stream of information and photos. Two months ago it gave us a glimpse inside the cabin, and last month it revealed its new infotainment system, but now Volvo has released details on the upcoming new XC90's powertrain.
