    Thinking about purchasing a 2011 XC90 3.2R and the seller has told me "that the catalytic converter for the 4-5-6 cylinders may have to be replaced" . I'm clueless what this means or how it effects the car now, any thoughts ? Thank you !

    I just replaced them on my S80 and it cost $570.00 just for the part . Not a real easy fix, have to cut the old one out, and fit the new one back in .

    It may sound a little louder , or you may not notice, especially after she's warmed up, but your exaust has a leak . My wife complained that she could smell exaust inside the car when sitting at a red light, and then I noticed it when I went through the car wash with the windows all up. It is definitely something that needs to be fixed , could be dangerous . Won't pass the new emissions test for inspection in Vt.
