Worst Vehicle I've EVER Owned
By Sarah on


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


This is BY FAR the worst vehicle I've ever owned. The Saturn Vue I had before buying this was more reliable! Unfortunately for me, I was so dazzled by this "Luxury" SUV that I didn't do enough research. I put MORE THAN $12K worth of work in less than 6 months, the last of which was $7,000 for a new transmission that, unbeknownst to me is a HUGE issue with this year, make & model. Volvo is conveniently refusing to acknowledge any of the innumerable consumer complaints- offer any sort of resolve or recall. Trust me I've tried- (I've contacted the Sales Managers of every dealership in the state, and put in a complaint with Headquarters in Sweden) no one cares.

Best Features

Very Aesthetically Appealing! This vehicle is beautiful inside and out! But beauty is fleeting! This Volvo is the absolute definition of "HOT MESS" :(

Worst Features

Keep the body, make reliable parts.
