Hello All!

Post by treffney » Wed Aug 14, 2019 7:44 am

Hello everyone - firstly, congratulations on a great forum with lots of active discussions and useful information. I’ve just chopped in my 2017 first-gen XC60 D5 R Design Lux Nav for a MY18 DS 240 SD4 HSE Luxury.

Keeping my fingers crossed on the reliability, DPF and oil dilution potential problems.

I am very happy with the deal I agreed with Harwoods LR in Croydon, who enabled Apple Car Play for me before delivery. I also negotiated a set of mats, full service (including DEF) and full tank of fuel. Car was beautifully clean and polished and looks brand new.

It’s 18 months old and has covered only 6250 miles. Very happy so far, it’s a far better vehicle than the Volvo in every way.

I had a small problem where the sat bag wasn’t speaking at all, so it had to go back in for more software updates. Service from Harwoods was brilliant.

Looking forward to some great drives ahead, including to France.

Cheers

Welcome, good looking car! You should be OK with oil dilution as the D240 has different exhaust architecture, fingers crossed!

Cheers - yes, let’s hope so! Took some brave pills though, considering I live within the ULEZ in London!

I know many people will say I should have gone for petrol, but I think the diesel Ingenium engine is a masterpiece and suits the vehicle. There were also no petrols in my budget.
