Wife's 99XC. 105k - no issues ever with the car other that all the issues the xc has. Told me she hears a noise when she is on the gas - I drive it easy - I dont hear a thing - I do a freeway ramp launch - Boy, do I hear it. Sounds like I dont have a air filter. When in park and she pressed the gas with me listening and watching - I hear nothing.
Aside from that car runs strong
