Traded in a 740 with 170,000 for an
850 with 58,000. I had the rear seal

a used S70 (which by the way, is what
my husband drives). I strongly
recommend the scheduled 5,000
maintenance. Our local dealers service
dept is simply the best. We couldn't
ask for better!

creates the leak. If that is done,
you might avoid the $1,600 repair. The
cost to remove and clean
