2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

I bought this car 9 months ago and have had it die 3 times on me. The battery had died because of a software glitch (they think) as described in a technical bulletin Volvo Int. put out. Each time the vehicle has been in my garage and when I went to start it, nothing. I love this car but am so disappointed in the reliability. I also think for a beautiful SUV such as this is, and not a big mammoth SUV, it should get much better gas mileage. Our local dealership has been great but it has been extremely inconvenient to have our brand new Volvo die. I love the way it drives, handles, its comfort, but if I have another problem, I'm inclined to ask Volvo Int. to take the car back.

Favorite Features

Size, not too big, not too small, steering wheel.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, battery that doesn't die on car with 7100 miles and only 9 mos. old!
