Default Just got a 2005 XC70 Cross new.

In 2005 I went to the Volvo dealership with my dad because we were picking up my mom's 60th birthday present. They took it off the showroom floor and my dad and I made the hour drive home to surprise my mom in the driveway...big red bow on top and everything. Well, she loved it, but because my dad did most of the driving on their trips, etc., it just stayed in the garage most of it's life. Since the day my dad and I drove it home, I always mentioned how much I like that car...and I still do.
Well, life happens and my mom passed away unexpectedly 4 months ago at the age of 74. Our family is handling it as any family would. We're doing our best...and we will be OK eventually.

Now back to the Volvo. This weekend I was visiting my dad and he wanted to stop somewhere on our way back to the house from shopping. It was a title company and he transferred the title to me, which was unexpected, but a very nice surprise. I just got it home and it's sitting in my garage. Like I said, it's a 2005 XC70 Cross Country with 54,000 miles and it as close to new as you can get for a 14 year old car. Not a dent or scratch. It always stayed in the garage so the dash is basically like new, as is the rest of the car. I don't think anyone has ever sat in the back seats and the rest of the interior is like new as well...the original floor mats don't have a single stain anywhere. My dad did change the headlight covers a couple of years ago because they hazed up, but other than routine maintenance and new tires, it has just sat there.

Here are a few pics. In the following weeks I have a few questions regarding safety and audio upgrades, leather treatment, etc. I am really excited to own this car for many reasons and look forward to continuing to pamper and enjoy it.

Thanks for looking.
