IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING FROM MM PLEASE READ THIS The buying experience was very comfortable, they were honest and even fixed one the headlights... that were having issues on the car. BE AWARE if you are buying a car from them get a 2nd opinion from another mechanic on the car. I honestly believe they did't know, when they sold me my 2005 S60R, that it had 3 LARGE CRACKS IN THE ENGINE BLOCK. And right after purchasing the car it started having issues. When I test drove the car it seemed fine there was an engine light for the bad headlight but the sales rep said it was fine, and coolant had recently be topped off so I had no way of knowing from the test drive it would drink coolant. Not to mention the rain and cold weather made me ignore the bit of white cloudy exhaust, I thought surely they wouldn't sell a car burning coolant. As it turned out the right headlight ballast was bad not the bulb so them replacing the bulb didn't last. I assume they just did the bulb since the ballast is 120 to replace, which I had to do. And the following 4ish months were full of breakdowns and electrical issues. The second mechanic I went to stuck a camera in cylinder #4 and saw a very large crack one that had developed over a number of years. I PAID $6000 for a car with 3 cracked cylinders, and the first mechanic I took the car to couldn't even tell, so I can see why the guys at Millennium Motors couldn't, that's what they said anyway. As I said GET A SECOND OPINION OR THREE. I believe these are good people and i support what there doing putting good Volvo on the road again but sometimes there A BAD EGG, when you buy make sure that's not what you pay for. I spent well over $1000 extra to get this car to where it is now and all I have to show for it is 3 CRACKED CYLINDERS a car that drinks coolant like crazy and an engine that's soon to fall apart. A car like that should never be sold at a used dealership. If they had simply down a compression test they would have known. They did offer am extended warranty but this was existing damage so the warranty is of no help. I DID GIVE THEM A CALL just to see if they could do anything, but there's really nothing they could do. AT THE END OF THE DAY, they MADE $6k and I have a car that doesn't run and is basically a ticking time bomb. SO I'll say it again GET A SECOND OR THIRD OPINION ON THE CONDITION OF THE VEHICLE. You'll be glad you did.
I can't say enough good about Russ and the buying experience. I bought a 2007 c70 Volvo. He had the car fax ready when I asked. I was able to negotiate... based on that and test drive. He is doing a great thing bringing volvo to the road.
Millennium Motors Portland had the used car I was looking for advertised on their website. I contacted Russ who responded within minutes to my email. ... Russ arranged everything including shipping the car to me in Juneau, Alaska. When the car arrived, I found it to be as described by Russ. There was a lot of trust required to purchase a 'sight-unseen' used vehicle from a distant dealership I did not know. I was not disappointed. I thank Russ for all his arrangements & honesty. Russ made my purchase a positive experience.
Russ was a friendly and honest dealership owner. Very knowledgeable and straightforward. He went "The extra mile" to help me purchase a S60R 2005. Great... price and value. A surprising great car purchase experience. When I buy my next auto I will talk to Russ first.
Russ was completely forthcoming and transparent. His business model is clear and if you are not comfortable with a rebuilt or salvage title - with some... non-rebuilt exceptions in his inventory - look elsewhere. If you want to deal with someone honest and helpful and get value in a car purchase check out Millennium Motors. I had done 3 months of researching the market on 2005-2007 XC70 Volvos. I drove one at Millennium in Oct and loved it. Great car....fair price but my finances had not come through. Though Russ sold it he remained in steady contact with info on cars he was acquiring that I might be interested in. A nice one came up and Russ sent great before photos and the VIN so I could run a CarFax. From there he was amazingly helpful in too many ways to list as I was coming from California to make to make the purchase. I am delighted with the car and my long time (20 year) Volvo mechanic upon inspection said that I got "a lot" of car for the price and that he would have bought it. My trip back to CA was great. I can't imagine the car drove much better when new. I very much recommend Millennium Motors.
I had an enjoyable (surprisingly, as I hate car buying experiences) experience yesterday. I was wary of the rebuilt title but it was a car that I'd been... looking to find for a month or two so I went and checked it out. I took it to a third party mechanic and it was structurally sound and had been taken good care of. There were some minor things that I will need to attend but for a used car in this price range it was to be expected. Upon return to Millennium Motors I went over the report and they were fair with negotiations and it was a pleasant exchange. I would recommend Millennium Motors! Great cars and experience!
Great experience today buying a car that I'd been looking for. I paid for a an outside repair shop to do a full inspection and the crew at Millennium delivered... on what was promised. All in all, a pleasant experience!
One year ago, we purchased a salvaged title 2006 Volvo s 60 for our 16 year old son. Safety was our number 1 concideration for all the obvious reasons.... We have previously owned 2 Volvos. Russ (the owner of Millinium) allowed us to drive a number of vehicles. There was no pressure to purchase. After buying the car we had an issue with the shifting console, and head light adjustment mechanism. Russ asked me to bring the car in to the lot so he could make the necessary repairs. He gave me a loaner car and 1.5 hours later the repairs were completed. No charge, no hassle just a respectful transaction. We are now waiting for Russ to find us a later model Volvo v-50 sport wagon for my wife. I will continue to recommend and use Millinium Motors.
We bought a "Rebuilt"-title car. We were so pleased with the experience. Love the car. Excellent condition. Excellent price.
