Nice vehicle with it's share of issues

2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
This is my wife's vehicle, which she loves. I am less enthusiastic, as I wish it were more reliable. So far in less than 2 years of having the vehicle, there have been 5 recalls. We have had a dead battery requiring the vehicle to be towed (bad cell). We have had a rear wheel bearing go bad. Both of these occurred at under the 17k currently on it. Factory Pirelli Scorpion zero tires practically bald at less than 12k and replaced on my dime.
Excellent safety features, great looking vehicle
Better tires suited to vehicle, engineer a little more reliability into the car
