Hi, gang! I've been "lurking" on the sire for a couple of days, since my son and daughter-in-law are about (hopefully) to buy a sedan tomorrow. Wish us luck...they put $200 deposit on an 89 190E 2.6, and we're driving from Detroit area to Chicago to check it out and (we hope) drive it home tomorrow.
My current daily driver is an 89 Volvo 740 wagon, 193K miles. My wife and I bought this on Ebay, and drove it home from Annapolis, MD on Washington's bitrhdat, through the mountains in a blizzard. As a result, this isn't as scary as it would be otherwise.
Other than the obvious (fluids, filters, warning lights, sound checks), is there anything elsr we should check.
I've been very impressed with the community here; reminds me of the Brickboard for us brickhead Volvo drivers.
