Average XC90 (V70XC was better!)
By Bushepy on


2003 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


The XC90 has been a disappointment with
the following: overall build quality,
fit and finish (both interior and
exterior, noisy electroic climate
control, poor audio system (the premium
Dolby Pro-logic II surround sound is
very disappointing), and, most
disappointing, the lack of adequate
engine power while accelerating onto
highways or while climbing mountains.
I also have had major problems with my
Volvo retailer on warranty work (they
damged the car. This could be my very
last Volvo.

Best Features

The safety features on the XC90, inlcuding Volvo's leadership in car and passenger safety.

Worst Features

The 5 cylinder engine is weak - more horse power is needed. Improve the premium audio system or go back to the Dolby Pro Logic-I system. Improve Volvo customer service!
