Is this 2010 Volvo XC90 a good deal?

Hi there,

Looking to buy a 2010 Volvo XC90 with 130k on the clock. There’s a full service history. Cambelt was changed at 100k miles. It seems most of the mileage was highway miles. Price is €12k. Is it possible to bring the car to a Volvo dealer to get checked out? Good deal or bad deal?

Hi Wendy,

Generally speaking that sounds like a good deal, and the XC90 is a pretty reliable car, as long as the service history is fully-stamped up. Just make sure you check to see if the centre differential is still working properly. It can burn out its clutch and disable the 4WD system, and there’s no warning light for it. A Volvo dealer would certainly be able to give it the once-over for you, probably for a fee, or an AA inspection might be a good idea too.
