A Turbo anything with 200,000 miles could be a big headache. I highly suggest you take it to a professional Volvo mechanic and have them do a thorough used car inspection. To do a good job, this will take at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours and will cost you somewhere between $100-$200 dollars.
This car will either be a fabulous deal or a major money pit. Please find out before you purchase it!
All My Best,
