09 S60 T5 - Running issues - MAF?

Hi folks, Well, I bought that 2009 S60 T5 that I asked for opinions on earlier... and it's testing me by giving some running issues. No codes - that would be too easy. Here are the symptoms (and my thoughts on each): 1. Idle is rough feeling - vibrations in cabin in drive/park/neutral. I've replaced...

Re: Considering purchase - 2009 S60 T5

Right now the only other car I'm considering is an Acura TL Type-S, 2007, with 133k miles That’s a very expensive Honda. :lol: Funny thing, that - I drove that TL thinking it was a clean version, and, well. It wasn't... asking price was $10,333. High for a clean one and asinine for that particular ...

Re: Considering purchase - 2009 S60 T5

Hah, the lack of heated seats was the one thing that gave my girlfriend something to complain about. Odd that it lacks that on such a loaded car, but I'm noticing many T5 models didn't get them...

Thanks for the advice everyone, I'll post back with whatever decision I decide to make!

Re: Considering purchase - 2009 S60 T5

Yep, the car I drove seemed to be pretty rattle free. My mom's was also. The P80 on the other hand... well, that dash had me ready to drive the car a tree on several occasions. These P2 cars seem far better screwed together. I'd say even more so than the P3 (11-17) cars that followed! Great link ora...

Re: Considering purchase - 2009 S60 T5

Thanks - I'll check the brands for sure. I believe they're all OEM or genuine, as the part numbers and invoice they gave me for work done are all Volvo part numbers, but can't hurt to check. Some things I remember from my P80 fun: - Oil pan pickup seals: do P2 cars have these problems still? Or is i...

Considering purchase - 2009 S60 T5

Hi everyone, It's been a while since I've posted here. Had a 98 S70 T5 that I enjoyed for a bit, fixed up, and eventually sold because the P80 platform wasn't what I hoped for - too floppy and riddled with rattles, even for an old car. Gave up after my second dash pull for repairs... So, anyways, I'...

Re: Potential V70R Purchase- Need advice on RUST

Sounds like you'd have enough to contend with without the rust... These cars are worth so little in good condition, I can't see any merit in a rusty one apart from a parts car.

Re: Say a prayer for Robert! Topic is solved

Get well soon, buddy. Your contributions go well beyond just helping with cars - I think there's a good number of people who have been inspired by your selflessness.
