Just had my 5 year service on my 2007 D5 XC 90 here in OZ.
My wife, children and I love the car.
However on my last service visit the mechanic advised that he noticed a small oil leak from the oil pump and quoted AU$755 to change the oil pump seal to do the work. In addition to that they recommended that the lower torque rod mount be replaced as well and quoted AU$261.
The car has only done 59950km and was a bit shocked to hear this news. However I don't have any oil stains on the floor of my garage.
I asked if this hampered my ability to drive the car long distance on a road triop and he replied no.
So I am a bit puzzled if this a major item or if it is simply a ploy for me to return back to that mechanic.
Is this the start of a suite of problems?
Any comments are welcome.
Many thanks everyone.
