After over a year of lurking on this site, i finally bought a used 2008 S60 2.5T with 14,000 miles on it. I got rid of my Scion tc so this is a big upgrade for me.

Re: finally bought one! (iggy637)

Welcome, I was the same way. I upgraded from my Cobalt, and I considered buying a tC 4 years ago. Gotta love these Volvo's!

question for all of you more knowledgeable people. This car is my first turbo. What are some general things i should know about turbo driving/maintenance? For example, when my mom had her Jetta 1.8T we were told to always let the car sit and idle for a few minutes after driving it before turning it off. Are things like this necessary for the 2.5T?

Re: (iggy637)

I have a T5 C70 with over 300K and a 2005 2.5T (wife's) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0"> . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> After a highway run, we let it sit for about 2 minutes. This is taking an offramp and stopping for coffee...2 minutes. Other then that, after a hard drive give it a minute or so. All other times, I just turn it off. <p>Knock on wood, no issues so far. Just make sure you change your oil every 7K. Manufacturers recommends 10K but I stick with 7K. This way the PCV doesn't get clogged. I've heard stories from my mechanic therefore am cautious. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">
