Volvo Forums?

I've googled, but I don't know which one to join.

The community on TW is awesome, but who knows which one of my google results is cool too

If you've seen this other thread of mine:
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/off...11-tundra.html

Originally we were planning on a 2011 Tundra, however. To make a long story short, a family friend is moving and she is selling her 2001 volvo. It's waaayyyy cheaper than buying a new 30K truck and the insurance will be considerably cheaper, so we decided to buy it from her. If anyone here is experienced with Volvos please do chime in!

It's a 2001 Volvo S60 with about 150K miles. When I drove it, it didn't feel like anything was wrong, the Turbo seems fine, the transmission doesn't shift roughly, the interior has been kept really well, and the suspension feels fine.

I do know we need to replace the tires, oil, and brakes. The maybes are: Auto Transmission fluid, Coolant, brake and power steering fluids, spark plugs and air filter.

These are the two sites I used when I was a Volvo owner.

I was heavy on Volvospeed, my first forum ever. I was "Svenson, The Terrible". I wonder if my old password still works!
