We actually did not, though. We owned it for 5000 miles, most of that was in one go, with only JFW. Did one oil change, put tires on it, figured there was a lot of stuff that needed fixed but never investigated; it runs great. I drove it maybe 100 miles total in 2-mile stints. Charlie drove it to school for a while. Based on our experience with Volvos before, I thought (still think) that it's good for many thousand more miles before it dies. I thought they were equally philosophical about it; if they only get 10K before it succumbs, they've gotten a good deal. I think it'll go much longer. I am fully on board with the new policy of don't sell to (or buy from) friends. Not worth the trauma. The buyer and I both feel awful.

We bought a car a couple of years ago because we needed something right away. $3500 and it was good for getting what we needed done, done.

I advocated for giving it to one of those "donate your car" fundraisers and walking away from it, but JFW found a buyer, unfortunately a friend, who's now upset. I knew that repairs were going to be more than what they paid, but also thought that it's a Volvo; a person could drive it for many thousands of miles without fixing any of that stuff, and that was what I thought they were going to do. 

Boy are they pissed.

And it was $2700. Overpriced but there are not many cars that run under $10k. I know they're complaining to me because I'm not the hardass ;-)

You probably could have given it to them...and they'd still be upset.  No good deed goes unpunished.

FWIW - they can't be too upset with you.  Buying an old Volvo comes with expensive repair risks.
