    Default Warning: chat to Otto

    Beware, it's an Otto. Most auto 19's died around that mileage (or even before). Suggest a good inspection before bidding! On the other hand - would be great for parts.

    Parked at a transmission place, is pick up only, and is unregistered.

    Hmm, did someone say "RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN"?

    Possibly not, but at 138,541km, that car is within the zone of potential auto trans problems.

    We used to warn people that if the trans lasted as long as the cam belt you were lucky.

    80,000 change the belt, change the auto.

    I'm thinking the speedo reading should be 138,540 no 13,854 thats shown.

    Buy the way that pick up address 353 Settlement Rd is the address of Manual Automatics so make up your own minds.

    Work has a 19 auto as a courtesy car. As long as the oil is changed every 20k and the CORRECT oil put in it, they last very well.
    Current stash
    too many.

    Passed over stash
    lots.

    The other trick is don't start them up and never ever put them in drive. that way they last forever.

    It didn't seem to keen to get into top gear when I had it yesterday. Although maybe it's not supposed to, is 4th just an Overdrive in them? I'm used to the manual Clio, which has really low gearing, and as soon as I've passed the last traffic light, it's in 5th, even in the 60 zone.

    Didn't even notice where it was parked. Glad I didn't say there was a good one for anyone, just a cheap one!

    That's quite encouraging. At least a couple of the gears work! Or were there four on those devices? In which case it is even better as three of them work.

    I'd run too.

    They were 4 speed auto's. I was pretty surprised. Then again, they were about $27k new, so you'd expect some pretty good equipment.

    Sold by Volvo at the time. Small volume etc etc. I thought they seemed pretty reasonable little cars at the time but the autos do not fit in the "good equipment" class!
