Volvo CPO Buying Guide

  Volvo CPO Buying Guide Volvo vehicles are eligible for pre-owned certification if they are five years old or newer, and have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer. That means it is possible to find a CPO example of, say, the C30 hatchback or C70 convertible, both of which were discontinued after the 2013 model year. Generally, a Volvo CPO showroom will offer vehicles from the brand’s current or previous-generation lineup. Inspection Process Volvo’s CPO certification process requires a 130-point inspection of the entire car, including exterior panels, bumpers, glass, tires, interior components, and powertrain. Safety systems are given extra attention. During the inspection, any vehicle components that are broken or worn out are repaired or replaced, and the car is taken for a road test to ensure everything is operating properly. Volvo’s CPO candidates must also have a clear vehicle history report from Carfax. If Carfax states that the vehicle’s title history is clean, but the vehicle actually has a branded title (due to salvage, fire, flood, suspected odometer rollback, or lemon-law-related incidents), Carfax will buy back the vehicle. Warranty CPO Volvo vehicles come with a limited warranty of seven years or 100,000 miles, but the catch is that this coverage started the date the vehicle was purchased by its original owner, and the CPO buyer is entitled to what remains of that coverage.

Recently, the folks over at Outside Magazine covered a unique recreational vehicle build based off a former U.S. Army M92382 military personnel carrier. The unique build appears to be a labor of love, as it was all done by the owner.

Originally purchased on craigslist for $10,000, the ex-military vehicle started off as a budget build. Powered by a 8.3-liter Cummins turbocharged six-cylinder, the truck made 250 horsepower and 795 lb-ft or torque. This meant the owner did not have to sink money into the drivetrain and could focus on building the living space. After completion, the massive RV now boasts more room than most studio apartments in New York City, and comes quipped with a 100-gallon water tank, a full-sized shower, a sink/stove, two futons, and plenty of counter space.

A recreational vehicle , often abbreviated as RV , is a motor vehicle or trailer which includes living quarters designed for accommodation.

Due to the size of the truck, there's a sizable rear porch used for storage and easy entrance, as well as a full rooftop. The roof is split into two: one section is used for solar panels, while the other half is covered in Astroturf and used for storage/golf. According to the owner, the solar panels power all the interior lights and certain appliances, thanks to a six-volt battery storage system.

When all was said and done, the total investment was around $55,000...which seems incredibly reasonable when compared to most recreational vehicles these days.
