2004 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

We have the 2.5L turbo. It has been very good with only minor repairs. Tires and front brakes at 45000 miles. I dont know why others say tires every 22000 miles. A pleasure to drive and will keep it for another 10 years!


Favorite Features

Good mileage. HWY 25+MPG

Vehicle

2004 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

Volvo is Swedish for junk. Worst car I have ever owned. Horrible service - Constantly breaking down. Needs a new transmission at less than 60,000 miles. New Turbo's. New head gasket. Burns through tires, oil, and brake pads, latches and locks have broken. If you are looking to be unhappy about your ride it is the car for you! Remember, friends don't let friends by Volvos! If you buy one of these cars there is one of you born every second (sucker) otherwise Volvo would go the way of Dodo bird.


Favorite Features

Putting it in a junk yard and never seeing it again!


Suggested Improvements

As I can attest the best improvement is to save yourself the grief and not buy a Volvo. This and as far as I can tell all Volvo's are horrible cars!

Review

From the beginning gas leak inside the car repaired by dealer. General western warranty all but worthless on most costly parts. Spring seats not covered. Electronic module not covered ABS not covered. Cost thousand of dollars. Every maintenance check is $400 or more, and you must maintain or waste warranty. Is that reliability in our auto world today?

Review

We bought our 2004 xc90 nov. 2007 with 57,000 and it has been a great SUV. Very strong but when the transmission light went on at 87,000 I was not a happy customer. We called the Volvo dealer and they told us to bring it in. They were very helpful and we have a "brand new" transmission at no cost, yet it doesn't have "manual" anymore. a lot of drama but it's driving well and I cant complain


Favorite Features

Xenon headlights, leather seats , and the turbo when it works.


Suggested Improvements

better turbo, engine and transmission.
