Used Volvo XC60 (Mk1, 2008-2017) - What do owners think?

The Volvo XC60 should make for a reliable used buy according to its Driver Power scores

In its last full year of production in 2017, the Volvo XC60 performed pretty well in that year’s Driver Power car satisfaction survey. The car was ranked ninth overall, ahead of rivals such as the Range Rover Evoque, with owners rating the Volvo highly for safety, comfort, reliability and build quality. However, they were less satisfied with the XC60’s fuel economy and running costs.

Reliability

With strong showings in the Driver Power surveys, the Mk1 Volvo XC60 should prove itself to be a pretty reliable used family SUV. Many of the car’s components had been used for many years across a wide variety of Volvo models, and the XC60’s mechanical underpinnings had been tried-and-tested across other Volvo models like the S80, V80 and XC70. Of course, it’s always ideal to budget for any potential repair jobs – especially if you decide to go for a higher-mileage or older example.
