S60 upgrade

Post by tmower » Wed Jun 12, 2019 8:04 am

Hello, I'm looking to upgrade my '98 S-70 to a '08 S60. Milage 88K. Any particular issues or trouble areas I should take a closer look at or be aware of with this model year? What types of problems occur? Thanks in advance for feedback.

Be wary of everything rubber in that car; also, I would start changing oil every 3 - 5k in order to avoid the dreaded PCV issue. See if you can get one with the timing belt changed, and clean the throttle body in order to avoid MAF check engine light.

IPD gives a great summary of common problems with the car.
