Are there any skeletons in the closet about an XC90 2005?
I am considering buying a 2005 XC90 which has done 212,000 km. for $2000.
It has apparently had its transmission replaced, a new timing belt and I'll have to pay $900- for the turbo seals to be replaced or a new turbo........unsure.
Can anyone please tell me if there is anything in particular I need to be wary of in such a car?
2.5 months ago I had a dreadful accident in which I lost control of my lovely XC90 on a badly hacked up bush road at night, went into a ditch and hit a tree at 80-100 km/hr. The dog was on the front passenger seat and her airbag opened but mine did not. Might that truly have been due to sophisticated sensors detecting I was wearing a seat belt whilst my dog was not or was it just bad that mine did not deploy, please?
I feel I owe my dog's and my lives to the fact we were in an XC90, so want another one. I've been told that since their release, there has not been a single fatality.
