Hello and Good Day!
I was recently looking for new family car. Before we had Mitsubishi Lancer it was good and reliable but became too small for 2 adults with 2 kids and big dog. I tested few cars and Volvo stole my hart.
At beginning I was looking for t6 with loo old good 6 cylinder engine. But as there were no good deals at the moment and priority was to have car with clear history I bought T5 with VEA engine(b4204t11) and only 2wd drive. It was reasonable as we mostly drive on highways so no use for 4wd. It is summum version.
I was not analyzing its configuration as I focused on technical stuff. I still have surprises right now in example bigger brakes (336mm). Where can I decode VIN to get this car configuration?
Things to do:
-Spark plugs (already bought)
-Transmission oil (still need to figure out if it is worth to pay for dynamic change or just diy fill and drop oil few times. I found some additional filter kits in place of oil cooler.)
-There is some noise from rear suspension need to diagnose it and
-Install subwoofer (I have premium audio with 5 speakers and I want to upgrade it to 5 with sub)
-Deadening of floor and doors.
-New 18inch wheels
-Drive safe with pleasure!
