What A Joke
By David on


2004 Volvo XC90 2.5T Fwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I purchased the Volvo XC90 for safety and reliability. The air conditioner has died three times, the engine blew up when the service department turned off the service light, leather seat split at the seams at 80,000 miles, font head lights faded and had to be replaced at 60,000 miles. There are no after market parts, Volvo stands behind its product as little as possible and charges $1,000.00 for just about everything. Even the key broke and thy charged $300 for a new one.

Best Features

Good to look at from a distance but if you knew how horrible it was.....

Worst Features

Build a quality vehicle that is not expensive to maintain. Volve built its reputation on quality and safety and if the safety is anything like the quality they are in big trouble.

I agree. Bought mind in 2009 with 53000 miles. Seat split the first summer I had it. The tweeter fell off the door and the console lights went out. This year 5000 in repairs. Front axle, Universal joint, Cv joint, both brake calipers, leaking crank and clogged pcv case. One thing they don't tell you in the manual is to change the oil every 3000k not 8000 as Volvo recommends.
