Hi, wondering what folks think of the following possible deal on a 2008 XC90 V8 (Ice White) that was a dealer's daily loaner vehicle. Mileage is 6,800. No Nav or DVD, but it does have Climate Package and Convenience Package (so heated seats & backup sensors). The ask is $39,000 and CPO warranty is included in that (until July 2014 or 100,000 miles).<p>Any concerns over buying a dealer's daily loaner? I view the CPO warranty as balancing out the risks somewhat on that basis, but would be very interested in others' thoughts.<p>Many thanks -- this XC90 would replace a 2001 Subaru Outback and join my wife's 06 XC70, which has not given us any problems. <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Re: Standard Buyer's Question (freewill)

There is not much what could possibly happen with the car @6800 miles. If price seems to be right - go for it, CPO or not.<p>Remember that the CPO adds at least $1500 - 2000 to the price. I would negotiate it "out"...

I would consider keeping the CPO warranty as part of your deal if you're likely to keep the car more than a few years or put a lot of miles on it. Sure, you could just put the money in the bank...but how may people really do that? Any kind of major repair will wipe out that savings in a hurry, too. A CPO warranty can also be a powerful selling point if you sell to a private party after the initial factory warranty expires. <p>

I used to have VIP warranty, being concerned with perceived unreliability of P2 based Volvo.<p>However, in my personal anecdotal experience with 2000 S80 and 2004 XC90, where the former would be the paragon of a trouble (if you believe everything you read on Internet) and latter also had its fair share of “criticism”, I did not break even on S80 all the way to 147K miles, and had NO major issues that would require $2500 insurance with XC90 till 87K miles. I would keep those cars longer, but both of them were totaled in accidents.<p>The S80 had decent reliability and XC90 was one of the most reliable cars I ever driven (much more so than many new Nissans and used Toyotas and Hondas I had) second to Ford F-150.<p>After that – I have 2005 XC90 and 2008 S80 and did not even think about the VIP or CPO. Total waste of money in my case.<p><br>XC90 is very reliable. <br>
