2005 Volvo XC90 V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)

Review

Misery! Volvo forgot reliability is part of "safety." Where do I start with the 2005 V8 AWD "top of the line" for that year. First big problem: AC put out only HOT. Then the shifter/key start up had problems. Yearly, windows always need calibration as they would roll down by themselves. Then an ABS control failed and I could not start the car. After the pitiful 4yr/50k warranty ran out (car paid in full of course) the transmission failed after 70,000 miles, cost $6500 to fix, then there was the engine leak that after 4 months of diagnosing turned out to be a leaky engine BLOCK, so I needed a new engine after 80,000 miles. Dont get me started on the electrical system. Worse vehicle ever!

Best Features

3rd row seats. Individual earphone jacks.

Worst Features

DVD system cannot be operated by driver. Navigation system is primitive. No factory bluetooth or iPod connector. To attach factory trailer hitch they had to cut away the bottom of the rear bumper. Running boards should be standard.
