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


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


Best Features

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


Worst Features

better turbo, engine and transmission.

Review

This vehicle is hands down the most elegant, smooth, and did I say smooth vehicle I have ever driven. The seats are so comfy, and the steering wheel just feels like silk! But then the transmission issue. Do not buy a t6 awd unless it has had the transmission upgrade! I bought one used now I'm looking at $8,000.00 in repairs. Volvo knows it's a huge prob and will pay for parts in some cases.


Best Features

Smooth ride, classy style, rear 2nd row sliding and reclining seats!


Worst Features

Transmission, DVD player in my 2004 restarts movie when you turn car off..

Review

I hate this car! Bought new, all options but the GPS, over $50K. At 200 miles needed a new fuel tank, original was cracked. Here's what went wrong: Xenon headlight fogged replaced, almost killed myself because they were pointing down, night visibility after reinstall of the new ones was 10 feet! Then the tail lights leaked filled with water, replaced, power steering unit, replaced, computer replaced, fuel tank door fell off 2X's, windshield wipers broke, CD player and back-up signal beeper stopped working, brakes after 20K miles, tires every 22K miles, water filled the roof, wanted $900 to remove interior to let it "dry out"! Suspension bushings needed replacement, & on & on. I HATE IT!


Best Features

Looks, ride, quietness, other than that, it's a piece of you know what, highly overrated. Volvo should be totally embarrassed. I see others who own them and think, what a sap like me. Has zero interior storage, find a place for your cell phone and then you Wonder what to do with your sunglasses!


Worst Features

Drive a Honda and Nissan you amateur Volvo engineers and take notes, (what a bunch of dummies). Never again! I could kick myself!
