Hi, Introducing myself. I just purchased my first volvo on Tuesday. It's a 1998 V70. So far I'm loving it, even though it needs some things done to it. It's just a lovely wagonFrom what i've already been reading here, I'm glad I went with the '98 and not anything newer.Just wanted to say hi. And thought I'd post a picture of my baby on the day i got her.

Welcome to the forum.

I miss my friends in MA; Ipswich, Winchendon, North Adams, Colrain & Fall River.

Although not a V70, the 850 is a very similar car therefore my 1st & 2nd replies in the following thread may be of some use:

Also, have recall items taken care of at the dealer if not done yet; free of charge:

Stay warm during winter.

Hey, Susan!

I'm next door to you in Plymouth and have a 2007 V50 and a 2008 S40. Our Volvos seem right at home in the snow! I had a 2008 V70 as a loaner for three days last week while my S40 was in the shop and really loved the car. Lots of luck with your 1998 V70.

Hi, I'm a new member from Plymouth. I just bought a 2006 Volvo XC70 from a private seller. I have a mechanic in East Bridgewater. I would prefer to have a mechanic near Plymouth. Do you know of a mechanic in Plymouth?
