ReviewI bought a 2005 Volvo XC90 new in Feb of 2006 at the dealership in Athens GA.
In Dec. of 2011, transmission had to be rebuilt at 87,000 miles for $4200 - dealership wanted $6500.
Then in April 2012 at 92,000 miles, the engine started knocking - balance rod failure.
I looked on line and Volvo has known that both these failures could occur in this make and model.
Never did I receive any recall or info.
I contacted Volvo of North America who offered no help to pay for these repairs. I did not rebuild engine - would cost almost what car was worth.
I sold it to an auction company for $3600. Now drive a Toyota Highlander.
Will never trust Volvo again.
Best FeaturesLoved the way it drives and rides.
Worst FeaturesVolvo needs to take responsibility for the quality of their vehicles. I never thought when I bought the car I would have a major mechanical failure at 87,000 and another at 92,000 miles.
