I WOULD NOT purchase another XC90
By Beckett on
Vehicle2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T Fwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewOur lease on the XC90 is up and we won't be leasing a Volvo again. The factory Pirellis lasted 12,000 miles and the replacements are going bald with about 18,000 on them. That's expensive; especially when you add a brake job at 20,000 miles which the warranty fails to cover. Other annoyances are a totally inadequate A/C, a stereo that picks up 1/2 the local stations and seats that don't fold up/down dependably. When compared to the Lexus and Acura automobiles we have owned, the Volvo is equal in price, but NOT EVEN CLOSE in quality. If you are looking at buying an XC90 make sure you get it CHEAP so you can afford the repairs.
Best FeaturesLooks, comfort, safety.
Worst FeaturesBigger entry level engine, brakes that last, factory tires that last, A/C for Texas summers, better throttle response, less complicated seats, limited slip differential (so tires don't constantly slip) & gas mileage that beats my Suburban.
