Extended warranty on S60T

Hi
I have an S60 T. with 47,000 miles on it
I'm wondering if I should get the extended warranty, and if anyone has any experience with mechanical problems that are common after 50,000.
The car is well-maintained and has had no major issues.

Thanks
Scott

Hi Scott, I have owned 2 of these cars. I can tell you that they are very trouble free and great, I mean really great cars. You might want to keep up on the lubrication of the front driveline components. Have the boots checked by someone who knows what to look for in terms of wear beyond normal. Replacing headlight bulbs is a dream, very easy to do and good clear instructions in the owners' manual. Also check your coolant level for the radiator often. I overheated one of mine because of this. Somehow I neglected to check when we were in a heatwave here. No damage to the car but kind of scary. Honestly with good maintenance these cars will go a long time. If you ever have to jumpstart your battery, I left the key in the number 2 position for several days, don't panic if various accessories don't work after the jump. I mean vital accessories like door locks and moonroof controls etc. The low voltage control modules are not fried, they will reset. If you drive your car regularly it will reset quickly. I drive mine less frequently so it took several anxious days and a panicked order for replacement modules before the "miracle" of control module regeneration took place. It was kind of spooky, these cars are too smart. One last point, you can safely, easily and economically purchase parts for the S60 on the net, Erie Vo Vo, is a great resource. Good parts and great parts. Any good experienced mechanic can repair and maintain these cars. Most of the complaints I read, and I read alot of S60 sites on the net, are dealer/service related. Too high a repair costs, prolems not fixed, etc. Maybe it is the snob appeal thing but I live in the sticks and my mechanics and myself take care of anything. There are some computer related codes that require dealer attention I hear. Check it out first and save yourself money and grief. Have fun with your car and know you made a good, wise choice. These cars are safe, sexy and fun. Carlos Scott Bradley wrote:
