Volvo XC90 (7 seat SUV) for sale - Basel, 4000CHF
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone,

As we are relocating our much loved Volvo XC90 is for sale, located in Basel. It's a great car, and we will really miss it - comfortable with plenty of space for the family with a huge boot in 5 seater mode, and a good enough boot in 7 seater mode (the 2 extra seats fold flat into the floor of the boot).

We've driven all over Europe (including 7 people on a tour round Czech Republic) and utilized it's 4 wheel drive talents in the snow all without any problems. Most of the mileage is on the autobahn - we live in Basel and use public transport around the city.

We are the second owners - we've owned the car for the past 4.5 years, and before that it was owned from new by a family near Zurich. It also has full Volvo service history - last service was about one month ago prior to our summer European road trip. That service included standard things such as oil/filter change and a brake overhaul. Also Volvo extended the Volvo assistance package for another year as a result of the mechanical inspection.

The facts:

- 2007 Volvo XC90 D5 (diesel with 185ps/182 bhp)
- 263000 KMs (mostly long distance driving)
- All wheel drive
- Automatic
- Leather seats (heated in the front)
- Cruise Control
- CD player with Aux-in
- Bluetooth phone connection
- Surprisingly economical - we average around 8L/100km in the summer and 9L/100km in the winter, which is pretty great for such as large car.
- 2 sets of wheels with Nokian tyres - one for summer (BBS alloys) and one for winter, all with plenty of tread left
- Full Volvo service history, recently serviced, with Volvo assistance.
- ISOFIX
- Roof rack with roof bars and a ski rack included
- Has an auxiliary heater for the winter that activates when it is 5 degrees C or lower to heat up the cabin in only a couple of minutes. Great when combined
with the heated seats to get warm in the winter!

Price: 4000 CHF

MFK was a little over 2 years ago - I called the MFK people and they said I just had to wait for the invite.

The only negative is the few scratches and bumps on the bodywork (I can email anyone detailed photos if they're interested):
- Front bumper is scuffed on the right and left corners.
- Scratch on the drivers side back door and a small scrape on the rear drivers
side bumper
- Small dent in the roof (from falling ice at a friend's house :mad:)

The photos here are quite low resolution and limited - please send me a PM if interested and I can email you some more photos.

We've priced it at 4000 CHF for a quick sale - I think it is rather cheaper than other XC90s I can find on Autoscout. If we don't sell pretty quickly then it will probably go to an Auto Exporter which would be a pity for such a great car.

Any questions please let me know. We live in Basel and anyone is welcome to come take a look.

Thanks!

Nice car.
And nice parking spot.

I've got an Q7 or SQ7 sitting behind me. That would be difficult, I'd need a new parking spot...

You can have the car MFK'ed at any time, if you want (engine needs to be clean, though).

That's a great deal for a winter car.

Might be worth talking to a few exporters..

I got got a bit over 4k for my old xc90, it was a 2.5t, 2006, 165k kms, with similar extras and over two years since control, various bumps and scratches.

Fantastic car indeed!
I had one too and replace for a newer model. I did not even consider any other car.
The price for that mileage seems attractive in my view but despite the mileage this car can carry on for many more miles. It is a real beast!
The only ‘pain’ is the MFK every year starting 2019...

Nice one, if you had placed it a month earlier we'd have a deal.

This is a nice car, had it myself, but changed for the XC70 D5 2 years ago.



The D5 engine, might not be as economical as the newer engines, but it is definitely the most reliable Volvo diesel available.

Is this a new rule?

Thanks everyone for the comments, and for the PMs - I wasn't expecting so much interest so quickly!

We're actually in Switzerland until the end of September, and we'd like to keep the car for a bit if possible before we go but we can discuss this with whoever ends up buying the car and work something out.

Regarding the MFK, my understanding is that the 1st MFK is 4 years from first registration, next is 3 years later, then it's every 2 years - i'm not aware of any change in the law to yearly inspections...

Only petrol cars without catalyzer need a yearly check, irrelevant to this car.

Hi everyone,

Thanks very much for all the interest - the car is now reserved for a close family friend who was the first line to take it.

In case anything changes I will let you all know.

Thanks again!
