2005 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

This is by far the most disappointing vehicle purchase I have made. The transmission has gone out three times in less than 70,000 miles. The radiator and multiple hoses had to be replaced and the maint department at the two Volvo dealerships my car has been towed to were rude and unprofessional. The service department actually told me that my car was poorly built and I'd be better off buying a different vehicle. I was told by the manager that the XC90 is plagued with mechanical flaws and the gentleman that brought my car to me from the shop threw the keys on the counter and walked away without speaking. They didn't even give me a new transmission..they stripped one from a car on the lot!

Favorite Features

The interior is nice...I enjoy looking at it every time my car is being towed away for a week or more at a time.

Suggested Improvements

Build a vehicle that doesn't fall apart after I spend 60K dollars on it!
