2003 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

We bought our XC90 used, knowing that it had a couple of problems to fix, but thought that the discount of buying it used would make up the difference, were we wrong. After multiple trips to the Volvo dealership for engine light issues, door seal leaks, transmission seal leaks, brake master cylinder leak/failure, and several other small engine repairs. We've deemed the check engine light the "$1000 light", because every time it comes on or we make a trip to the dealership for repairs it costs at least $1000. Great idea for Volvo's first SUV, but plagued with problems. Later years don't seem to be much better. Fun to drive, looks great, way too expensive to maintain and repair!

Favorite Features

Fun to drive. Exterior looks are great for a small SUV. Third row seating and storage capacity are both pluses. Extra luxury in the rain sensing windshield and auto up and down windows.

Suggested Improvements

Make lug bolts that don't rust...a $45K vehicle and they can't make lug bolts that are chromed? Better drive train and engine components designed to operate such a heavy AWD vehicle without constant repair. Better fuel economy. 14-16MPG is horrible mileage for a smaller SUV.
