Need Unsolicited Advice on 2013 XC70

Post by 2frufru » Fri Jun 08, 2018 8:28 pm

Hello Fellow Volvoians,
I need some Sweed-advice.... I'm looking to purchase a 2013xc70 (3.2 Premium) and would like unsolicited feedback from anyone who has owned/driven/experienced this year and model.
My blessed 2002xc has gone off to Volvo heaven, after saving my life in an accident. That car was a true blessing, aged beautifully and NEVER left me stranded.
Any insight anyone can offer on the 2013 run would be amazing!!
Cheers ~

We also have a specific section for 2010 and up. These P3 gen were somehow made with cheaper parts while other parts (such as the awd) was more robust. Many had problems with the cabin blower giving up well before 100k miles and it's almost a dash removing job plus a special tool.
