I was concerned about transmission issues and replacement parts costs on the XC90's. I've been doing some research and it seems the 2008 and up is a safer bet but is there an engine/transmission combo that is better? Generally I would steer clear of any turbo as that adds complexity and I wonder about costs on the V8 as well. Same idea for AWD which I don't need at all.

Did you ever find anything. This one is back again from 20 days ago. 3.2 Non-Turbo, FWD
"2007 Volvo XC90, ~ 124000 miles, 7 passenger with 3rd row. Leather interior, DVD players.
Runs well, Newer brakes and tires. Sold as-is, $2500."

I did not and kinda stopped looking for a bit. My AC is running cold again now that my fan works well. Ha. That one seems almost too cheap...$2500 for a $40k car that is 12 years old? Depreciation sucks.


Edit just saw it was deleted so is gone...hopefully it was a good buy for the new owner!

Hell, if I had the cash I'd pick it up in an instant for $2,500! I'm passively shopping for another XC90 for myself, but I'd like either a V8 or T6. Maybe even a 2.5 and I'll bolt a 19t onto it... hmm...
