Does anyone know if the new Volvo's come with synthetic oil from the factory
or if they are using normal oil. They told us the service interval is
12000kms between oil changes (and the salesman recommended more like 8000kms
to be on the safe side - which we agreed with as well) and i'd just like to
know what oil they use... Forgot to ask while at the dealership.
We're considering adding a 2005 XC70 to our little fleet of cars, should go
along nicely with our 1993 960, which will "replace" our 2003 Golf CL (too
many stupid BS problems with it... using our 12 year old Volvo as a commuter
car is the better option - isn't THAT nice to hear!!!) and the XC70 will
take over the 960's job as the families main car for long trips and such,
towing, working, getting groceries... etc etc.
