I am sure this appeared on another programme a while back and I am sure they said that Volvo used to pay for it to be shipped back to Sweden for its annual service and any other major works.

Which channel is this on ?

It was on Quest last night at 10pm, believe this is a ‘new’ series. It’s been on Quest every morning 10-11 for ages although mostly repeats.

And it was pretty spotless - the bodywork looked good as did the interior. The boot was another matter as it seems the owner carried pretty much a spare of everything just in case he should break down Rolling with laughter

United Kingdom 2015 Freelander 2 SD4 Metropolis LE Auto Firenze Red
Re: Chasing Classic Cars

Original battery in my 2002 V70 was replaced at 15 years 5 months, I got the replacement from a Volvo dealer for just a few more £ than the alternative online outlets. Owned by me from new, I'm still running the car. Mind you it did cost me a new car when I went to collect the battery they had a pristine 2014 FL2 Metropolis on the forecourt with 16k on it that I just couldn't resist.
