      Looking for a Volvo for my kid, which one?

      Kid crashed her car. She is ok, car is gone.
      I have been looking for a used car for her and with an XC60 in the family already, I thought why not a Volvo for her too?
      Requirements: sub $10k with $8k ideal, need to be able to get 50k miles out of car, awd, smaller car prefered, no wagons.
      Looking for recomendations and suggestions. Thank you.

      To me a smaller non-wagon Volvo with AWD and costing $8-10k would be an S60, maybe 2013-2014 vintage though watch out for oil burning issues which is covered by a Tj.

      You could also go older with a '08 or '09 S60 AWD but those oft times have shift flare issues.
      Past: '94 854, '99 S70 T5 SE, '99 S70 GLT, '04 S60R M, '12 S60 T5, '13 S60 T5, '15 S60 RD, '05 V70R GT
      Present: '95 854 T-5R, '06 XC70, '15 XC70 T6, '15.5 XC60 T6, '16 V60 P*

      Thanks Wayne. Is there a list of Volvos that burn excessive oil? Dont want to give my kid a car that will require oil between changes.
