Urgent Transmission Service Required
By viking on


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


We waited six months for it. With 200
miles on the odometer, taking daughter
to school, my wife had to call Volvo
roadside assistance due to sudden
sluggishness follwed by a dashboard
message "Urgent Transmission Service
Required." The dealer had the car for
4 days, and flew in a Volvo master
tech to fix the problem - bad solenoid
that locks in gears. Dealership never
heard of problem, but one of the
salesman heard that it had happened in
a handful of other XC90's with low
mileage. Aside from this early
problem, we love the stylish exterior,
the comfy interior, the practical
seating, the decent soundsystem.

Best Features

Exterior styling and pleasant ride and handling.

Worst Features

GPS controls are cumbersome. Keyboard might be a nice addition. Turbo lag is annoying.
