What should I look for in a used Volvo V90 estate?
The V90 will have been used on motorways as well as on school runs, so check the bodywork for stone chips and parking scuffs, as well as for any damage to the alloy wheels.
So far, reported problems with the V90’s mechanical bits are few. Some issues have arisen over non-engine electrics, but these have usually been fixed under warranty and within a week. Volvo as a brand fared less well in our most recent reliability survey, finishing in a disappointing 25th place out of 32 manufacturers.
