      I changed at 5k between the free 10k dealer changes. Now that they are over, I'll continue to change every 5k.

      Same here. Wifey's XC90 is due for the final (free) dealer oil change, after that I'm installing a Fumoto.

      So you're getting a crappy offer because you're doing a TRADE. Sell it yourself and you'll get a lot more.

      Usually rotors are held in place with huge philips screws - hence the necessary torque is "good-n-tight"

      I've never had to replace the suspension in any vehicle I've owned. I've replaced some shocks before but not because they were failing/bouncing, I just wanted 'better' shocks.

      I'd pick 2018 over 2016 in a heartbeat, if all else is equal. First year models tend to be lemons by definition (apologies to all 2016 owners who happened to be lucky.)

      Since the manufacturer specifies 5w30 as one of the recommended oils I'd stick with it. 5w30 thins out after a while anyway.

      PSA: 'Eco' modes don't really work. You're just robbing yourself of power. You're better off learning how to be gentle on the throttle and to avoid braking (ie. 'go with the flow' of traffic)

      So has my 2018. The 2016 was the problem child with _some_ early 2017 models still having issues. By end of 2017 MY things were pretty much fixed on the production line.

      Fantastic video! Since you're a moderator, please make this a sticky.

      How are the front brakes? Presumably similar but without the parking brake.

      I don't use ramps for the XC90.

      I built plywood ramps for our other cars (just many 2' wide pieces stacked upon each other to build up a slope.)

      What's in it?

      Wife's XC90 will be getting a 30k service soon, will likely update to latest SW regardless of the cost since it's likely our very last dealer visit.

      Total Records: 243


      I'd advise everyone who's shopping for an XC90 to buy a 2017 or newer.

      $1000 for oil, filters and a "brake job"

      - Oil change $30
      - Air filter $15
      - Cabin filter $15
      - "Brake Job" $100 (assume this is how much volvo pads are)
      - Rotate tires $0
