In a word: YES! You will almost certainly get offers well below that of Parkers and What Car? too - they are very optomistic. The only V70 which sells easily is a D5 SE - a nice one in a nice spec has the 'phone ringing off the hook.

V70's, petrol or Diesel, are not terribly popular buys and whoever takes it on will have to sell it! The Diesel are more popular than the petrol, but not massively so.

To be honest I've always found V70's very popular cars as long as its the right model, spec and colour. There is a dedicated Volvo driver base out there who lap them up one after another. Perhaps it depends on geographic location but in my experience a well looked after Volvo diesel estate in the right spec will have people fighting over it.

You have to advertise them in a particular way and Volvo V70 buyers have a particular aversion to bunting and concrete forecourt used car dealers (don't really blame them) so you need to present them properly and find the niche but there are loads of people who have had 740's followed by 940's followed by 850's followed by V70 Mk 1's followed by V70 Mk 2's etc. etc. and will only consider another Volvo V70.

I am just going by what I've seen at auctions in the last 6 months. V70's don't seem to attract much interest and go for what seem to me to be relatively low prices.

I agree with you, they often seem to perform surprisngly poorly at auction. Selling them seems to depend on the right price and spec, they also seem to sell much easier in the South than North.
