Haven't read the whole thread just wanted to share an interesting story about v70s....
My brother in law used to work for a car dealership. When that program to turn in old "inefficient" cars/suvs was in effect, they'd kill the cars by pouring some sort of substance into the engine, then running it until the engines failed - like car euthanasia.
Well, whenever they'd get a v70 turned in to be "euthanized" .... those engines would run and run and run and run. One even ran more than 20 minutes before it died.
My brother in law went out and bought a v70 for himself after that.
