I found a good deal on a 2010 FWD xc60 and before I pull the trigger I was wondering if there are any issues with the year-model. Is the 2011 better?? The same dealer has a 2011 in excellent shape, but outside of my budget. Any replies will be very helpful.
Also, both cars have around 80k miles. Any significant services coming??
See if you can find the maintenance history - if the car was dealer serviced Carfax will show it. If the car is at a dealer you can also ask if they completed a "100 point" inspection (most reputable shops do this) - the question is whether all servicing is up to date and if there are any known issues. Its impossible to predict what will fail in the future, that's really a general reliability question for the make/model/year.
