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

Review

I am not delighted with this car. There is a noticeable squealing whenever I back off the accelerator. The problem (thought to be turbocharger back-pressure) is currently "under investigation" by Volvo. The windshield washers are loose and turn on their own. Not the kind of build quality you would expect on a $40K+ car. Fuel economy on the T6 is awful. In summary, there are no major problems but this is not what I expected for $43K. Do not overlook the T5 version as it is nearly as fast as the T6 with smoother performance due to the 5 speed transmission. It also has much better fuel economy. If I had it to do over again, I would have bought the T5.

Best Features

Safety, handling, driving position, interior, sound system.

Worst Features

Build quality. Fuel economy. Five speed transmission for the T6 version.
