So, what would I expect to agonize over and/or tear out my hair on a 2011 Volvo XC60 that has 83k miles on it, for $11k?

run away screaming?  hand over the bills as fast as I can?  something else?

Problem areas to look for if I test the car?

Some recent chatter about the V60, the non-lifted version of the XC60

Looks like they're relatively robust, and I should save my pennies for sneaking in the Polestar tune before I take it to OneLap sometime, eh?  There's a couple options for front pads, but nothing for rear pads... yet.

Digging around, it looks like a couple of minor recalls, mostly right when they came out.  Plus, timing chain.  And apparently it's an inline 6.  I guess I've really not looked into Volvo's in a while.

well, no Volvo for us... for now.  someone else got it, maybe before we even got to see the ad.  oh well, that's how it goes.
