I am looking to purchase an XC70 in the next few months, and in my area (Mid-West) they are few and far between. I have come across one that is a 2013 3.2 with 76k miles on it, but its black on black - so a pass just for the color alone, I have also read about oil consumption issues with the 3.2...?
Generally speaking, what years and engines were best on XC70s? I know that they were known for being a bit a gas hog. I will say, I don't mind the Ford era Volvos but I am a bit of a newb- hence why I am here.
If I end up with a 2012 or later- what issues would I be looking at down the road? Or is it just a matter of making sure the previous buyer was good to the car? Either way I am going to have it inspected by a trusted mechanic.
If anyone also has any input or can point me to one that fits my criteria it'd be much appreciated- thanks folks! I would be happy to travel (within reason) for the right vehicle.
**Is the user JRL still here? - I keep seeing to contact them if there is interest in purchasing a Volvo out of state..?
