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


Previously drove A4 and 9-5 but w/3 kids we needed something more practical. The SUV has traditional good looks that didn't go out of style 3 yrs later. The seats are still very comfortable. The third row seat has not been an issue and won't be unless you have a large teen or an adult in back. Even that is OK for a short ride. However not all is good with this SUV. The AC is nothing short of terrible. The Pirelli tires that came standard didn't make it to 25K. The plastic housing on the driver side craked. The tie rod broke at 42K The CD player no longer works. Lease is up and will look at GL450 X5 MDX.

Best Features

Tailgate, child seat

Worst Features

Get tires that get to 30K, get rid of cheap plasitc housing around power seat controls, fix the AC. Tie rod at 42K? Not going to sell Volvo safety for long, come on Ford get with the program
