I've actually posted a bit on the SPA XC60 forum already, but this morning I saw this so I thought I'd say hello. We've had a V70 now for almost 19 years (new in February 2001) and have decided for a number of reasons to move to a new car with the new active safety features. That's how I ended up here - searching on possible issues with the T8 drivetrain and the SPA XC60 in general. So far it's looking like the XC60 T8 is what we want but we'll do due diligence on other luxurious, hybrid, medium-sized crossovers (less the amazingly ugly Lexus line) before buy the XC60 Maybe try to do an overseas delivery.
Going to the dealer's today to do my first test drive. Not like they have just what we want (no, I'm not paying $3000+ for a sound system even if everyone else looking an Inscription is and I don't understand the appeal of larger wheels with low profile tires) so I don't have to worry about driving away with a car today. I do want to take the time to test cars with and without the air suspension to see if it's worth $2000 to me.
Anyway, just saying hello and hopefully sometime in the next 12 months or so I'll be able to post some pictures of our new car.
