Post by dos_volvos » Fri Jul 05, 2019 6:19 pm

If it helps at all, I bought a 2009 XC70 T6 (Polestar) with 75K mi three years ago. All solid, 145 K and counting. Engine based on that reliable Ford 6, which i had in an equally reliable old Taurus.

That XC70 looks really nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 6 cylinder non turbo is also used in the Land Rover LR2

The Turbo version that you are looking at is Volvo only.

The Engine was built at a Ford factory but not in the USA the factory is in the UK.

Ford was the owner of Volvo and Land Rover

I recently bought a 2010 S80 3.2 with about 125,000 miles on it

and I've owned my Land Rover LR2 3.2 since new in 2008

I wouldn't hesitate to buy that XC70 if it runs well and shifts well.

Make sure that the AC blows cold - I didn't check this carefully on my S80 and I ended up replacing the compressor.

With some basic maintenance that XC70 should last another 100,000 miles without a major repair

Good Luck

Paul

Hey Matt..I think it was sold. I sent him a text yesterday and he didn't reply even though the post is still up. My son and grandson came down from Oakland to hang out and I didn't have the opportunity to check it out. I was going to head down this weekend.
