2007 S80 3.2 common problems

Post by coded9 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 12:34 am

My S60 found itself being totaled last week (sadly). So I'm finding myself in the market for a new(er) Volvo. I'm looking at an 2007 S80 3.2 with 113,121 miles. It appears it's had its regular maintenance (at an Toyota dealership from what the car-fax says). I know at this mileage if it hasn't been done already it's due for an auxiliary belt. Is there anything else I should look out for these in the long term in terms of common failure? I want to make sure it's not going to have anything ugly go too quickly (like the READ) going out too quickly (like sub 180k), especially since I do nearly all my own repairs.

Also, How much can I expect to pay for an inspection at an Volvo dealer?

The problems that I've seen on my 2005 Volvo S80 2.5T that should be looked at are:
1. Headlights - do they work, are they intermittently working, any sign of replacement needed
2. Front Suspension - All of it. Bushings, ball joints, A-arm bushings
3. Engine mount bushings - All of them
4. Any stored codes left on the system
