But with malfunctioning shock absorbers it's worth less...

Your car your decision of course. We're it my car I would fit standard, if I could not find an alternate supplier then it would be Volvo and try and haggle a discount.

So many of these cars have auto boxes, yours like mine is manual, well worth keeping in my book.
My xc is the last Volvo I shall buy as anything newer has no manual option and I abore atuos, I tend to keep my cars a long time and as I am not bothered about their value as a trade in just want them working as intended, if that means 450 a shock I will start saving.

I have spent many times it's value on my landrover, but as it's for my benefit it matters not, it's what you do if you are keeping the car.

You of course may see things differently.

Paul.

If I never spent what I have on it so far I would not hold back and buy a shock from Volvo. I bought the v70 to save money as my last volvo started playing up after spending an absolute fortune lol. After doing the dpf, clutch ect Im sick even filling it up as Im getting 27mpg driving it easy 🙈.

Still time to save for a replacement, the mot tester never says anything about the shock. I just know its leaking a little and hear a slight knock... Im just too anal with my cars tbh.

Hey, I'm in the anal club also, sometimes think I should wear ear muffs when driving, wouldn't hear the noise that needs investigating that way.

The 27 mpg is why I buy diesels.
