In that case, it does make sense to just let it go. It is sad, as you have been around for ages and we are going to lose yet another good member. I hope you find another one in better condition that it might be worth keeping. I know they are getting older as cars, but I still find them much more reliable and cheaper to repair than the newer awful S40 and V50s

Yes. They are better built and more reliable than many much newer cars. These Volvos ooze quality compared to many modern offerings. They are simpler too and long lasting with the right care and a reasonable yearly investment and shouldn't be that expensive to run as long as you have a good one to start with.

Also, no matter how controversial and a bit of an "acquired taste" you are skyship: a lot of us don't want to lose you here.

I do intend to run my daily driver 2000 S40 1.8 (non GDI) Auto with 111k forever.
I am in fact starting to buy parts to create a little stash of items for when they run dry.
