Default Buying a 1999 Volvo S70

I am looking at buying a 1999 Volvo S70 5-cyl, 2.4L without the turbo. It's had one owner and has just over 100,000 miles. I have read about the ETC and the ABS module being notoriously problematic; however, the car has been carefully maintained and seems to be in amazing condition. Thoughts? Is this generally a reliable car? I welcome any tips and suggestions.

I have attached the link below:

IF it has good maintenance records I would say you have found a decent one. The ABS module is not that big a deal, I just had Victor Rocha do ours and it turned out amazing for about $120. The ETC can be an issue, but it too can be fixed failrly easily. Good safe car, I put my teenage kids into one!

Psaboic, thank you. When I go to look at it I'll make sure to check out the records.

What are some of the best sites to get OEM parts for this make and model?

I would suggest FCP Euro, Swedish Parts.com or Erie Vovo.
