Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Volvo V60 estate?
Look out for any bodywork damage, such as dents and scratches. Make sure the bumpers don’t have any scrapes, because they can’t always be repaired and replacements are expensive.
Make sure the alloy wheels haven't been kerbed, because not only can they be costly to repair, but they also might be hiding some more serious suspension alignment issues.
Supplementary restraint system
An issue has been found with the installation of a part of the supplementary restrain system fitted to V60s made between 10-22 September 2020. Find out if your car is affected by this because it'll need to be checked over by a technician at a Volvo dealer if it is.
