Default V40 D2 wanted

Hi,
I'm looking for a V40 for a friend of mine who has 6-7k to spend. He's looking for a tax free or low tax car. Obviously he's looking for the best car for the money, lowish miles and a decent spec. Flexible on colour We're in the North East but prepared to travel for a private sale if the car is good.
Thanks
Steve

If possible, go for the newer 2.0-litre D2 (which is a Volvo engine), rather than the 1.6-litre D2, which is a peugeot engine.

I thought the D2 had a load of clutch/DMF issues?

Thanks guys, so what year did the better Volvo D2 2.0 engine arrive ?
Under the bonnet how do I tell them apart ?
The money available puts me in 62/63 plate ballpark.

The more I look at engines the more confused I get...

I was looking at D3 engines and I assumed it was scaled down version of the 5cyl 2.4 engine as in my XC60, yet when I look at some car reviews they describe it as 4 cyl 150bhp.

What I'd really like is the 5cyl D3 150bhp with low emissions/Tax how do I tell which engine is which ?

confused.... :-)

Thanks
Steve

The 2.0L D2 engine was introduced in 2016 model year cars so would have been available in cars from later in 2015.

The 2.0L D3 on a 62/63 plate car will be a five cylinder, as you say it is similar to your D5 but has a shorter stroke. The new 2.0L four cylinder D3 was introduced in 2016 model year.

Personally I would go for a 5 cylinder diesel as the engine note will make the car feel that little bit more special.

If one isn't available then the 2.0-litre D2 (from Volvo) would be next choice...though I will admit it sounded like a canal boat when I tested one, especially compared to the old 2.0-litre Ford/peugeot diesels in the older S40/V50 cars.

Having said that, sometimes unrefinement means high reliability.

Ahh I see, that clears it up then thanks.
I'm viewing a 62 plate V40 D3 (5 cyl) tomorrow so fingers crossed it's as described.
Slightly high mileage at 88k miles but hoping its all OK.

I'm hoping clutch etc is OK, anything else I need to look for ?

Thanks
Steve

Last serviced in Nov last year, its done 12500 miles since then.
I'll be advising the new owner that the best option is main dealer service ASAP, on line quote from Volvo is around 250. Think that is best as its an unknown car and they might find something I didn't see on inspection. Plus there's roadside assistance for a year afterwards.

After that... its up to him
