What petrol XC60 do I keep away from. Major issues?
T5. NO. Gearbox that comes with it is Ford rubbish.
3.2 or T6 GOOD.
Earlier than 2014? T6 may have raised oil consumption which was addressed in 2014 models. Some use a little, some none, some if neglected, a lot.
3.2 has potential to the high miler. Mate has a cc 3.2 with possibly 500K+ kilometres by now. No issues other than usual stuff.
Service gearbox and Haldex and do all the suspension links,bushes etc etc.
Thanks very much for info. Taken on board.👍️
Anything with over 75,000klms , check gearbox has had full 16ltr flush and get haldex done regardless if not done already.
I got the brake fluid and coolant flushed at 76,000kkms as well.
Preventative maintenance is your friend, check for stamped service records.
Ancillary belt definately at that age , it is critical, PCV and coils ( they fail and heat up , can ignite oil thats in the insulation of the plastic engine cover from dribbles on fill) plugs, A/C comp and radiator fan unit fail.
