At about 2:00 PM this afternoon, I paid $3,990 for this 1999 Volvo V70XC with 145,000 miles, and drove to my office to finish out the day’s work. So far, so good, right?
At 6:00 PM, on my way home with it for the first time, a cylinder stopped firing and the check engine light came on. I’d guess I put about 35 miles on it before it grenaded.
So, I got that goin’ for me.
UPDATE: The repair shop says I need a new coil and ignition cable and I’m back on the road.
