    I am trying to buy a Certified Pre-Owned S-80. I have a choice between
    a 2003 with 24K mile and a 2004 with 33K miles. Volvo give a 6
    year/100K mile warranty on any CPO from the original date of sale.

    With all other things (including price) being equal which is a better
    choice in the long run?

    Any comments will be appreciated.

    get the better maintained seeming car. If that is equal, get the
    one that you prefer. The age vs mileage issue doesn't arise until
    at least 5 years into a vehicle's life, unless the difference in
    mileage is huge.
