XF is out of range, S60 maybe, if 9-3, 9-3 troll or 9-3 linear?

Old 9-5 if you are ok with a minor/major problem after 100k.

are 9-5s problematic after 100K? I also heard the jag is problematic after 100K, some even have to totally overhaul the gearbox, don't know true or not

Personal experience. Depreciation less than 7k per year, not too bad for a car of this class.

Not problematic lah. Just wear and tear and usual stuff.

Prolly get the troll as it's more bang for buck as u r looking at the 2nd hand market. Price diff wouldn't be too big as well.
