Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Volvo XC90 4x4?

As long as it’s been serviced regularly, the XC90 is generally a very reliable car. And it’s well screwed together, so if there are any ill-fitting pieces of trim or uneven panel gaps, be suspicious – the car has probably been abused and may have suffered crash damage.

Look underneath for any signs of damage caused by off-road use, check the car’s four corners for parking damage (easily caused, especially at the front), and ensure the door mirrors adjust properly and watch for cracks in the reflective glass.
