Description for Volvo 240 1989

1989 Volvo 240 DL Wagon, speed, ower windows, ower brakes, ower steering, ir-conditioning, eated seats, ruise control, hird row child seat.
Has some nice upgrades and a MAJOR stage 0 service. It is showing 97,070 miles but its more like 200,000 since the odometer was broken for a while (it works now). Original white paint with blue cloth interior. No rust. Texas car its whole life. Gets 23 mpg in town and up to 27 mpg on the highway.
I'm the third owner and have records all the way back to the 1980s for it. I have receipts for everything listed below and all work has been performed in at most the last 10,000 miles. Overall the paint looks very good with the exception of the upper surface of the LH front fender which shows some topcoat loss and has a paint repair area.
Air conditioner blows COLD!!!! This car has no window tint and about 50 yards of glass and it will cool down on a 100 degree Texas day.

THE BAD STUFF AND FULL DISCLOSURE DETAILS:
The engine idles roughly. It runs great on the freeway but has an uneven idle. I don't know why. I'm tired of working on the car and buying parts for it. Could be an air mass meter or the air idle valve or just a vacuum leak somewhere. It is not showing any fault codes.
The LH front fender needs a repaint.
It drips a drop of oil about every two days.
