looking for 850
Posted 29 March 2005 - 12:59 AM
Sorry, I am not from Kuantan so I do not know of any Volvo service center
there. One VOCM member driving a blue in colour 850 has a workshop in
Kuantan. I am sure hohgch can help as he is from there.
Very difficult to find a car that has done 70K in 10 years. That’s 7000km
in a year. Like what gfc says, maybe the OBDII can help. I guess by
looking into the engine bay, interior & exterior, one can determine how
well the owner has cared for the car and thus the mileage.
So far two individuals has shown interest in my car. One has viewed the
car last Sunday. The other has yet to make an appointment to view the car.
Arrrrrrrrrrrgh. How much longer do I have to wait before I can lay my
hands on one 850 T5 or better still 850R.

If 850 T5, still can follow(i think) but 850R, i better drive on da
second lane next time. kakakakakakakkakaakkakakaakka
"T5" and "R" bug flying around again, waiting to bite ........
Have a nice day there GLE...

Manage to get a buyer? Well, a friend of mine interested. I don't how can
I get him to view your car because we are from Kedah.

Actually I quite ‘sayang’ my kereta. Bought on the 2nd June 2004 for
RM53200. Been servicing, repairing, upgrading bit by bit until today.
Burnt couple of thousands oledi. Now trying to sell for RM53K negotiable.
What to do? Travelling at 160km/h kat highway pun kena makan asap by
850T5. Now looking for level playing field. So must get 850T5 or better
still 850R. Ha ha ha. Wait. wait first.
To view the car, kena tunggu till VOCM organise trip to Bukit Merah
hopefully sometime this year or kalau kawan brother ada turun KL, bolehlah
contact saya. Tapi jangan lupa bawa cheque book ok? Ha ha ha. See you.
Have a nice day there Ziemann...

Sorry been super busy of late... Didn't follow this thread.
OK, you can get the car checked at Teo Thian Hock. There is an ex-FA
mechanic there. I send my S70 there for repairs and service. Not too bad.
Price is reasonable too. Get your brother to call me? My number is
There are also around 3 850 here in Kuantan for sale. One of which is a
white one in my friend's used car dealership. Belongs to a finance co
manager. There is also another one or two 850 for sale around the same area
I believe. Also there is a 850 T5 for sale as well. Belongs to my friend.
Going for RM60K. Done 190K. 1996 model and very well kept.

Thanks for awarding me Datuk. It's very hard to get this recognition.
At Bukit Merah, your car must be in tip top condition bacause he will be
comparing with others or he might change his mind and go for T5 and
hopefully he can sabar.

sorry didn't reply earlier, didn't notice u were looking for me.
anyhow, i had a tough time myself looking for a volvo in JB last time. no
particular dealer or friend who has any worthy volvos for sale. u can
check with KK Ng if u'd like, he has a workshop in Skudai, i send my car
to him for major repairs. u can contact him at 0127200597..nice humble
i bought my car at one of the dealers along jln tebrau, a 1997 S70 2.5
20v. haven't regretted since. i did notice a blue 850 at the same shop a
fews weeks aft i bought my car..don't think its there anymore. however, i
wouldn't recommend the dealer to you..had bad exp with him, stuck up and
u mentioned SM Motors in a later thread...i'm planning to visit these guys
in Spore one of these days...another is Unico..haven't found the time
yet. any comments on these two establishements in terms of service n

i think a member Pocik71 is contemplating to let go is 850R, although not
sure wether he has made up his mind yet or not!!
Posted 30 March 2005 - 02:52 PM
thanks. i'll text my bro, he'll prob call you when he's back in kuantan,
unless i'm there first. still struggling to issue various reports for
banks down here in spore before Thursday. shoot that's tomorrow!
me dont know about costs as up until today my ride has been under the
free-maintenance period (up to 60,000km) - good stuff, all free except
tyre maintenance. i got them to change the wipers almost every service
intervals! no idea on the other shop you mentioned.
before you come down, check out the prices at sm/fa for things you're
thinking of getting. some of them are much cheaper at sm motors.
