By klosterfrau1 on


2003 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


I was lucky to get this car to 125k almost every month I had it in the shop for all kinds of problems from shocks to spark plug and coils replaced. brakes squeaking and replaced that didn’t fix the problem and the rotors were replaced and still didn’t fix the problem. The transmission gave out and had to be replaced, a piston gave out it was replaced, dashboard lights out , brake lights were out and the mechanic could not find the short so the wiring was replaced but the dash warning came on every time you step on the brakes. It leaks! The gas tank was leaking, then coolant started leaking and then wiper washer fluid started to leak as well. Tsc gave out, electric system warning came on.

The most unbeleivable experience in all cars owned: 135k miles, right now: -1 xmission replacement = $6,000 dollars -2 xmission rebuilds=$9,000 dollars -1 replacement fuel pump=$1,000 dollars (now recalled) -1 leak from drain tubes of sunroof =$300 dollar cleanout and re-route of tubes -1 drive shaft replacement = $1200 dollars -1 full front end replacement (tie rodes, anti sway bars, ..etc)=$2500 -1 Driver's Instrumentation Module = $1500 dollars at the dealer-$300 at a DIM refurbisher in Canada If you are on this site, you are looking for a good car for your family. Volvos are not it. Total it out before you get in a car.. Yep, that grand total is more than $20,000 dollars for 135,000 miles, AND no-one will allow me to trade it in. VOLVO COULDN'T PAY ME TO OWN ANOTHER CAR OF THEIRS!
