Default XC70 swap?

Hi looking to get myself an XC70 however my currency is my 2010 Honda CRV, so looking for a swap really, a small cash adjustment would be possible. The Honda is black, in excellent condition, sat nav, black leather / alcantara, full history, 2.0 VTEC engine, 102,000 miles, as you would expect from a Honda it does everything you would expect it to do and everything works as it should. I appreciate this is unlikely, but thought it worth the try.

If it does what you want it to do & everything works as it should, why change it?

Don't go there. It's an emotional thing, I'm advised!

I know it's just a tease but probably worthy of a reply, The Honda is as described, what I've omitted to describe is the boredom factor during ownership, totally uninspiring, hence the desire to return to more interesting motoring. My expectations are very low and in reality I doubt forum users will be interested.

I have an XC70 and a CRV!
When I had to choose which to park up when my Dad became to ill to drive the logical thing was to keep the Honda.
The Honda is parked.
I drive the Volvo.....

A tease indeed!

Its your money and your decision at the end of the day. If you fancy a change, why not!? Good luck finding a Volvo, you'll come across one somewhere.
