Looking at an 09 V70 D5 R-Design tomorrow, been using Vida on my 1999 and 2002 V70's for a while now, will this work on 09-11?

Is there anything that I should be checking while viewing/test driving

Many Thanks
Carl

Hi there I think Vida works on Volvo models up until 2014 if I am not mistaken I am sure the other Volvo forum members will correct me if I am wrong regards

As said, Vida works on this model.

Youíve seen the thread of mine and some issues I encountered that I didnít expect, I was unable to scan the car I bought.

You havenít said which engine is in the one youíre looking at. The D5 engine was changed from the euro 4 unit in late 2009 to the 205bhp euro 5 unit for the 2010 model year, mine is a 2009 registration but a 2010 model with the newer engine.
If itís a euro 4, check swirl flaps, thereís loads on this in the forums.
Donít know much about the other engines.

Usual checks with everything else, if auto does it change smoothly? Then budget for refreshing the oil anyway. If manual, clutch condition (best you can) and rattles from the flywheel.

Check the electronic options are working as expected.

Timing/aux belts, same issues as P2, note the on the P3 D5, there are 2 aux belts, a small one drives the air on compressor and doesnít have a tensioner in its run, the main aux belt suffers tensioner issues, Volvo have reduced the service interval of this to around 54,000 miles.

Hope itís a good one, I love mine even though itís thirstier than the old euro 3 P2 engine.

Thanks Reggit, so the ad says 202bhp which I think would be euro 4 however looking at the rear it has twin exhausts which IMO make it Euro 5 I presume 205bhp?
