Has anybody read the write up in the latest edition of the BASC magazine about the Volvo XC60 D5 ?
I bought the exact same model after listening to BASCs recommendation, and to be fair it did sound good and was a very comfortable, quiet and fast vehicle.
But the write up didn't tell you that, as standard, it comes with a small compressor and a tube of goo instead of a spare wheel.
At the ordering stage there is the option, at extra cost, of ordering a spare wheel but it is a 'Space Saver' wheel and if later you do manage to buy a proper spare wheel there isn't the space to stow it as a full size wheel is too big to go where the space saver wheel is usually kept.
The mpg is way way out, mine did, under test conditions by the Volvo garage, with me present, 30.7mpg and was then told not to expect any more until I've clocked up at least 20 K and then it will improve slightly !
I was also told that the D5 has been phased out as the five cylinder engine was not viable any more !
Not exactly such a good vehicle for 'Country Folk' as the advert seems to imply.
I kept mine for just over three months and then had a problem shifting it, did eventually, but lost an arm and a leg in doing so.
It has all the bells and whistles and goes like the proverbial Sh++ off a shovel so would be ideal for anybody with a baseball cap on back to front, large sunglasses and heavy metal turned up to full blast with all the windows down.
Speed wise, it has been compared to the BMW X5 and I don't disbelieve it.
