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.
Runs great!
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!

Volvo recommits to Sweden with development of next-gen platform and engines

Tue, 04 Dec 2012 11:33:00 EST

Taking into account the facts that Volvo is now owned by China's Geely and how poorly the European automotive market has been recently, we would have definitely understood if Volvo moved production of its products out of its home market. And yet, the automaker has confirmed that it will be investing billions of dollars into new platforms and engines that will be made in Sweden. On a global scale, Volvo is making roughly $11 billion of investments, and close to half of that is being earmarked for Sweden for plant expansion and upgrades.
The new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform will be the used as the basis for most future Volvo products starting with the next-generation XC90 that will be debuting at the end of 2014. SPA will be used to make up two-thirds of Volvo's sales, and gives Volvo a quicker and easier break from Ford-derived platforms. As for the Volvo Engine Architecture (VEA) family of engines, there are really no details about this mill except that it will be a four-cylinder that is more fuel efficient than current engines.

Volvo shows inflatable child seat concept [w/video]

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:03:00 EST

Volvo is bringing its emphasis on safety and design to the littlest members of the family with its concept for an inflatable, rearward facing child safety seat. The design is meant to help traveling families by offering a lighter and less bulky alternative to traditional car seats.
The design is quite ingenious. The seat is covered in drop-stitched fabric, which fills with air to create the form of the seat. An electric motor in it allows inflation and deflation in less than 40 seconds, according to Volvo. It weighs less than 5 kilograms (11 pounds) and folds small enough when collapsed to fit into a bag. It even has a Bluetooth connection, so parents can begin expanding it remotely.
The inflatable seat in the brainchild of Lawrence Abele, Volvo's design manager at its Monitoring and Concept Center in Los Angeles, CA. "For many, travelling with young children is a challenge; any assistance to simplify the parents' life with young children is a great thing," he said in a statement released by Volvo. The chair remains a concept for now, and the automaker isn't saying whether it's going to put it into production, but it's a clever solution to a common problem. Scroll down for a video showing it in action and to read the release.

2015 Volvo XC90 mule spotted testing in the snow

Thu, 21 Mar 2013 09:27:00 EST

The Volvo XC90 was a big step for the Swedish automaker in 2003, but the midsize crossover has changed very little since its introduction. All that's about to change as Volvo starts its initial development on the 2015 XC90, which we see for the first time in these spy shots showing a cobbled-together XC70.
Like the current XC90, the next-generation model will be both longer and wider than the XC70 - judging by the modifications made to this mule's body - which will continue to allow Volvo's flagship crossover and provide three rows of seating. The next XC90 will ride on a new platform that will eventually make up around two-thirds of all Volvo sales, called the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA).
Our shooter managed to find out the registration number for this mule, which indicated that it was powered by a five-cylinder diesel, but we expect the automaker to start stepping away from its current powertrains with a big push toward smaller engines courtesy of the new Volvo Engine Architecture (VEA). Rumor has it that the future engine lineup for the XC90 will rely heavily on turbocharged four-cylinder engines and eight-speed automatic transmissions, which will likely eliminate or lessen some of the current mills available like a straight-six or V8.
