      Would you buy XC90 (2017 or newer) without warranty?

      2016 has lot of problems. But my question is for 2017 and newer.

      I read a few problems with Air suspension. So, if I wanna get a used one, I'll prob avoid Air suspension.

      What problems have you guys encountered already?

      Is it a good car to keep long term (for 10 years)?

      It is possible to get a good car that lasts long. But CPO extended warranty is quite good. Factory extended warranty for a 3 year old car is more expensive. Of course CPO car is more expensive than non-CPO used car.

      If you set expectation for some repair necessary, it is totally doable without warranty. There is already 100k miles on some cars reported here.

      So far the most worrisome issue is the spark plugs in 2016 and some early 2017 if not replaced in time. Other than that, most issues are not critical.

      Thanks! The one I'm looking at is April 2017 with CPO. I might pull the trigger soon.

      Yeah. The dealership posting already included CPO. I'm more leaning towards Inscription (for the ventilated seat). What other difference is there between Inscription vs R-design?

      I'll answer the question you asked: NO. However, I bought and still own a 2016 . . with a CPO warranty. It's been top class. 4th Volvo we've owned, and definitely the nicest.

      Looks like you've owned lots of Volvo before. This would be my first jump to European car if I get Volvo. Heard lots of electrical issue with BMW, Audi has engine issue and Benz cost arm and leg to maintain. Haven't heard too much about Volco, so I assume Volvo is more reliable than BMW. Audi and Benz.

      Hell no. I bought my 2018 with 10 extended warranty. All the sensors, electronics and air suspension will cost me a lot down the road if I don't have warranty.

      Sorry, I bought it new. Not sure about CPO. They should have vip package for CPO as well.

      I wouldn't want to own a Corolla out of warranty these days.. With the 10 year age unlimited mile CPO warranty available I'm not sure why you'd even consider it. I would never want to sell an off brand used car to a friend or family member either. Frankly, we won't even sell them here unless they are still under factory warranty. But you have to buy a CPO vehicle from a Volvo dealer, you can't just buy a used Volvo from a Chevy store and add the CPO... the non CPO warranties cost quite a bit more even though they have shorter coverage periods.

      Thanks for the info. It's around USD $2453, not $25k.

      I'm currently looking at a CPO from a Volvo dealership. So, I will enquire about the "Certified by Volvo" Warranty Upgrade Service Contract, Platinum Coverage.

      no. on today's higher end cars, there are just too many $$$ items that can go wrong. i had a panamera turbo (msrp $160k) that i bought used and paid $3800 for a 3 year 'wear and tear' platinum warranty just so i could sleep at night. once you reach a certain value, it's just too risky for most.

      If you asked me the same question 3 yrs ago - the answer would probably be no- but having spent 2.5 yrs/50K trouble-free kms with an SPA car - I have to say yes, I would buy anything non-T8 SPA used and without warranty. T8.. only with warranty.
