Vehicle Description

A very nice 2006/06 S60 D5 SE 185 with just over 75,000 miles, one owner and a full Volvo main dealer service history in silver metallic. The comprehensive SE specification includes climate control, 9-speaker 6xCD Dolby ProLogic II 4x50w sound system, trip computer, information centre, power windows and mirrors, full leather trim, electric driver's seat with memory, cruise control, auto wipers, auto dip mirror, 17" alloys, Dynamic Stability Control, ABS+EBD, SIPS, WHIPS and front fog lights to name but a few features.


This example also has the winter pack (heated front seats, headlamp wash & carpet mats) and rear parking sensors. The interior is in off black leather.


All Volvo D5 engines are superb power plants but this example has the updated 2006 186ps D5 engine with an massive amount (400Nm) of torque available from under 2000rpm. This is a very fast car which is easily capable of over 50mpg and even driven hard around town will still do 45mpg. It also has a 6-speed manual gearbox - the extra ratio usefully reduces revs at motorway speeds and improves fuel consumption even further compared to the previous 5-speed manual. CO2 emissions are just 174g/km which is very low for the performance on offer.


Condition wise this is an excellent example which we find hard to find much fault with. There are a couple of small loading marks on the rear bumper, a tiny (2cm) mark on the front corner bumper, some scuff marks on the headlight where light deflectors have been removed and some loading scuffs on the inside of the driver's side rear door. We have photographed these below. Other than that it is in very good all round condition.


The interior is excellent and doesn't look or feel really any different to a new one. All equipment works perfectly. This is a 2007 model year which has a few differences - the front bumper is slightly different, there are some silver highlights on some of the switchgear, indicator repeaters in the wing mirrors etc.


As always seems to be the case with used S60's it drives pretty much the same as a brand new one.



The 17" alloy wheels are in good condition with just some odd kerb marks - please see the pictures for details. The tyres are Pirelli's all round with about 5mm of tread on the rears and the fronts almost new P-Zero's with 6-7mm.




First registered on June 20 2006, the car has a full Volvo main dealer service history and has been serviced on schedule (the D5 185 has an 18,000 miles service interval) at 18733 miles in January 07, 37964 miles in July 07, 572236 miles in January 08 and finally at 7176 in May 2008. No MOT is needed until June 2009.  A copy of the service book can be downloaded in PDF format by clicking here and the next service is due in May 30 2009 or 89746 miles.
