Frequent Service
By Sad volvo owner on


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


Second volvo to own. Other was turbo S80. Both required frequent servicing. The S80 become costly after the warranty period. I was happy that I did not purchase the extended warranty because most of the problems were not covered or I used up the time before reaching the mileage. We are now located in Houston and recently their service is not user friendly. At least in St. Louis, the service was user friendly. Frequent service but user friendly. Service problems in this XC90 included the transmission needing replacement, the Turbo needing service and then multiple small electronic issues. I guess the Swedes haven't mastered computers yet. With only 28K, looking for a new vehicle!

Best Features

Close comfortable seating.

Worst Features

POOR gas mileage. 13 in the city, 17 on the highway. With only a 19 gallon tank, we fill up every 200 miles.
