Love Volvo, don't love XC90
By Volvoowner4life on


2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Bought my 2005 XC90 new in November 2004. Overall, I am happy with it, but also frustrated w/the number of the same problems over and over. Love 3rd row seats & integrated child booster. Hate that I have had to replace my tires 2x in the past 4.5 yrs. I have had continuing issues with the ball joints and tie rods that actually caused me to fail inspection. They have been replaced at least 2x & I am hearing the same noises again. There is not a ton of power or pick up with this vehicle. Also, I have had several fuses blow for the power outlets even though nothing is plugged into the very often. I would like to try the XC70 or the XC60 to see if I have better luck.

Best Features

3rd row, integrated child booster, safety features in general, AWD

Worst Features

Fix the issue that causes the tires to be worn very quickly.
