2012 Volvo XC70 D5 SE Lux - Very Good Condition For Sale
Regrettably selling my lovely XC70 as I no longer need the AWD, and so I've bought an S60 D3.
I brought it over from Northern Ireland (where I'm from) in February 2018 and it's been a fantastic, comfortable, economical and quick car which I've trusted to take me anywhere. In that time, it's been to Germany, Isle of Wight, The Highlands, and many other places, as well as all over The Lake District and home to NI.
It's a 2012 - on English plates it would be a '61' I believe. The WFZ Belfast plate stays with it - this is dateless if that's your thing.
This has the famous Volvo D5 5 cylinder diesel engine - in just about its most powerful form, I think they added another 5bhp in the end. Not to be confused with some of the later XC70s and other Volvo models which have a 4 cylinder diesel, which has just had a safety recall issued. No such worries with the D5. It works really well with the 6 speed automatic gearbox, which also has a manual mode. The all wheel drive is incredibly sure footed, in fact my old Land Rover Discovery on similar tyres doesn't work nearly as well on grass.
It has full service history, at 6, 18135, 35932, 53803, 63103, 80206, 94565, 104546 (including cambelt and auxiliary belts kits, with tensioners) and March 2019 at 123003 miles. The next service is due at 141000 or March 2020, whichever comes first.
In the last 18 months I've also changed the discs and pads all round, fitted new rear dampers (genuine Volvo), suspension height sensor (genuine Volvo) and the Xenon bulbs in the headlamps. It has a matching full set of Kumho Crugen SUV tyres. I also have a set of 16" steel wheels with Nokian winter tyres, which can be purchased separately, and a pair of Thule aerobar roof bars in silver, which again can be bought separately.
As it's the SE LUX, it's the nicest spec, and has a lot of extras:
18" Zephyrus diamond cut alloy wheels (I've shown the worst one in the pics, the others are much better, but these diamond cut wheels all go that way eventually - I planned to refurbish them this winter once it has winter wheels on)
Active Bending Bi-Xenon Headlamps
Integrated folding dog guard/luggage restraint
Dual zone climate control (which blows cold just as it should)
Driver's electric seat
Bluetooth for calls and music streaming
USB/iPod and AUX connectivity
Remote control for stereo/satnav unit
Extra comfortable Nappa leather seats
Hill descent control
Rear parking sensors with dispaly on screen
Citysafety (to prevent low speed collisions - also lowers insurance costs)
It also has:
Thule swan-neck towbar with 7 pin electric socket and extra number plate for trailer/bike rack
Carbox fitted load liner in the boot
Genuine Volvo fitted rubber floor trays to keep the inside clean all year round
Space saver spare wheel, jack and wheelbrace (these didn't come with the car, but I bought them from Volvo)
It really is a lovely car, which I will miss. It absolutely won't disappoint its next owner! I don't smoke, and I don't have children or pets, so it really is as nice to sit in as it looks!
Cash or ideally bank transfer on collection from Ulverston please. If required, I may be able to deliver it - just tell me the postcode and I'll get back to you with a price.
Thanks for looking, please do ask any questions you may have!
