      DGI's 2017 T6 Inscription Ownership Log

      Greetings,

      Joined the forum recently as I decided to replace my 2013 JCW Mini Clubman with a CPO XC90. After having a couple trucks sold out from under me, I found a beautiful Silver 2017 T6 Inscription at a local Volvo store. I previously owned a 2005 Mercedes G55 and my wife bought a 2016 Lexus GX460. For SUVs we tend to lean towards 4x4 capability and reliability over comfort but I have long believed that the SPA XC90 is one of the most beautiful SUVs ever designed so here we are

      Im starting this ownership log to document my ownership experience as ive done so with other vehicles i've owned in the past. I plan on doing my own maintenance but figured the CPO warranty will cover any reliability issues I run into along the way. I drive ~25K miles a year just to and from work and we plan on using this truck as our weekend getaway vehicle as we like to visit different museums around the Mid Atlantic area.

      The truck I picked up was advertised with 31,580 miles. Its Bright Silver with a Charcoal interior.

      Option packages include:
      Inscription package
      Convenience Package
      Climate Package
      Homelink
      Vision Package

      Part of me wishes it had the Air Ride suspension, another part of me is glad I dont have to worry about it.

      The dealership is holding the truck so that two of the wheels can be refurbished prior to me picking it up this coming Thursday. Im really looking forward to bringing it home and getting it up on the lift to have a look around

      Truck was delivered to my office yesterday!

      Very happy with it so far! My wife and kids are thrilled and I cant wait to get some more miles on it over the weekend.

      First order of business was swapping in my gear from my old Mini. Really fun trying to get everything organized in a new ride.

      Also decided to pull out my old front tag that I used on my 2008 R32 from years ago. I think it adds a little something to the front end of the truck



      Three issues i've found so far.

      1. There seems to be some type of staining on the front foot wells. Looks like maybe a drain was previously clogged but when I touch the stains it has an adhesive/tacky feel to it.

      2. The hood latch is difficult to operate to release and open the hood.

      3. Under the hood there are some bolts and latches that have some rust on them.

      Hoping to get the truck in the air tomorrow morning after breakfast to have a look around underneath.

      This! I recently purchased a CPO ‘17 S90 and noticed the dealers are selling the B&W models for the same price as cars without. It’s like they forgot about that $3K upgrade. I’m loving it compared to my old Audi A8 Bose stereo...

      Congrats on your new ride!

      Re-organized the garage so I could get Meatball inside as the weather gets colder. Will likely go back outside sooner or later as I start working on the winter projects I have lined up but im glad this works.
