Hello XC90 crew members. Looking for a little advice on an older XC90 model to
add to my current stable. Looking to keep it under 5K, don't really care about
options, features all that much. Pretty much going to put a rooftop tent on it
and take it camping, etc. with the wife and kids. Will very occasionally commute with it,
but I have an S60 and C30 for that. With my budget I feel I will be in the
2005-2010 model years for something with around 125-150K on it.
With that being said, what engines should I avoid or what would you recommend?
I had an 07 XC70 with the standard 2.5T in it and that was fine once I had an ECU tune.
From what I gather the T6 is to be avoided?
The V8 I understand is desirable, though not sure I need/want all that and would
probably get by with the 3.2 just fine?
Basically, looking for something with the least headaches as keeping up with 3 cars is
enough as it is.
