My son is looking at a 2007 V8 AWD with 68,000 on it....

Any issues he should pay attention to? I have the previous gen car and don't really know much about it.

TIA

Valve cover gaskets and alternators like to go. Make sure you drain and fill all of the driveline fluids and change the Haldex filter. The 4C suspension struts used to be stupid expensive but now that Monroe makes some replacement ones they’re not as painful to purchase anymore. Besides that, they’re great cars. Just picked up a 2008 S80 V8 with 98,000 miles last month and I love it!

If it’s an 07 with that low miles make sure it isn’t affected by the faulty transmission valve body. Look at the serial number on the trans. There’s a thread somewhere that shows the cutoff date, it think anything after 06J is the corrected one but you should double check.
