Gas Guzzler and Computer Problems
By alex on
Vehicle2003 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)
ReviewBought this used/certified car with only 20,000 miles. After 1 1/2 months, the system computer breaks down with a message that the braking system and SRS had conked out. Had the car towed to dealership. Service people said it's a minor computer glitch. OK. Guess what, same problem happened again 8 times for the next 18 months, everytime had the car towed and all the inconveniences. Had the car for only 18 months and have already replaced tires, steering rod and lots of other things. Had it serviced for 30,000 miles and cost was $1,100. Overall city mileage was 11 mpg, highway about 16. With premium gas prices at $3.30/gal, this car is more expensive than sending a child to college.
Best FeaturesStyling. Sound system.
Worst FeaturesGas mileage. Definitely not buying another Volvo XC90.
