My Big Mistake! Take our advice!
By crawfojj on


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


Yeah, so I got married and thought about getting into a family style vehicle. But, I wanted something with a little spunk to it. I opted for a used 2004 Volvo XC90 T6. Yikes! Bad call on that!
I owned it for 6 months...and although I didn't have to take it to the shop at all it wasn't fun in the least bit. It had good size and visability and I def felt safe...but that's it. Gas mileage was HORRIBLE! And it ain't cheap considering you have to use premium!
My seats ripped and the sunroof leaked anytime it rained and/or took it through the carwash. Also, it approached the 70k mile mark and I noticed my transmission slipping. Time to get out and cut my loses.

Best Features

Ummmm...can't think of any.

Worst Features

I thought for a $50k original car that it would have quality...not impressed. Volvo Cars is going the way of Saturn...bye bye. Get a VW instead.
