A Great Car Except for One Thing
By John George on


2005 Volvo XC90 T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


I spent several months researching what car to buy for my wife. She wanted an SUV. I wanted safety. We purchased a 2005 XC90 T6 with 39000 mi. The car was like new, had had all the factory recommended service & checked out perfect! Since the car had 1 1/2 yrs of warranty I was not concerned about reliability. Boy was I wrong! After only 400 mi. the car has spent the last 3 weeks in the shop waiting for a back-ordered trans. The climate control is bad & surround sound cuts in & out on turns. We love the car but are afraid this is an omen of things to come. Also, the "back-ordered" trans tells us ours isn't the only Volvo with this problem. Can't someone make a safe & reliable car?

Best Features

Safety, styling, performance, well thought out interior.

Worst Features

Volvo needs to ask Toyota how to make a reliable car and then go do it!
