    Cool XC90 buying Advice please

    Hello everyone,

    Its been some time since being on here ,

    Wife is looking to change her 2006 XC70 to an XC90

    She knows what spec it must be,,,,, leather dark heated seats , automatic !

    We dont know alot about these but she wants the ride height and awd

    We dont need the 7 seats , do those rear ones come out?

    What to look out for ? what to avoid, again looking around the same year 2006 ish

    Any advice really appreciated , thanks Ploppy and Mrs Ploppy

    the rears fold into the floor very neatly, got to watch for a hike in tax on 2006 models and onwards, there's plenty out there but fewer with dark interiors

    Current Volvo's 1995 854 Gul T-5R 1996 855 Olive T-5R 1997 855 Olive AWD and 1999 V70R AWD
    Previous Volvo's 1987 745 gle 1989 745 GL 1995 855 Olive GLE 2001 V70 p2

    Make sure the 4WD works, and check all the electrics. As Ade said, the most rearward seats just fold out of the way, once down, you wouldn't know they're there.

    If you buy a V8, make sure it's had a new alternator recently, ffs!
