For the past year I've only seen 100,000 and 200,000 mileage badges for sale.

Anyone have or know where I can buy a 300,000?

It seems these were so readily available back in '08 but now seem to be so scarce.

I've never seen any over 200K even listed or offered anywhere.

My '99 v70 got an engine transplant and a new lease on life, so I though I'd get a gift for her when she hits 300K.
Glad I'm starting to look now, since it seems it's going to take awhile.

Got that new engine in and running - good show!

What was the final $$$?

As to the 300,000 high mileage badge...

Volvo will send you a blue rectangular sticker showing "300,000" and can also set you up for a round 300,000 medallion for the grill for about $17 plus shipping.

The best and quickest way to get a medallion is to contact the marketing people that sell the Volvo High Mileage badges...

Chamberlain Marketing Group, 12103 Delta St., Taylor Michigan, 48180.... at Customer Service Dept.'s phone number 1-800-468-6230. The FAX# is 1-734-946-9021.

Let us know if you are successful.

Thanks.

George Dill

Hi George,

Final price with about 10 smaller parts replaced , labor and tax came to....

$4150. Ouch, I know... but,

Drove 3 hours on the interstate and my fuel efficiency / economy has gone up by about 5 additional MPG.

I've added the 3rd row jump seat as well and I haven't found any used v70 XC/ awd with less than 100k miles for under $8000. I bought her for $3500 so I feel I'm not in a hole especially if I drive the ol'V like an old man and keep her for the 12 years.


Thanks for the badge contact, I'll give them a call this week.
