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


Our three month old 2005 S80 was destroyed in a multi-car accident,with us taking five seperate impacts! 2 guardrails, 3 other vehicles. Confirmed to us the Boron steel safety etc. Replaced it with a new 05 XC90, 5 turbo. The vehicle has been great so far. 61,000 miles, and just replaced the Michelin tires. Right rear wheel bearing went out at the same time. Struts are about ready to go. I drive it hard daily @ 20,000 miles year. Fuel usage has been good for this type of SUV. My high was 24.1 mpg highway. Normal city 19 mpg. If you are not towing a heavy boat/other, this would be the engine to have, however they do not offer it this year. I would buy one again.

Best Features

Solid feel, heated seats, AWD feature. Still has a small tailgate for picnics. Anti-roll gyro, boron steel cage.

Worst Features

Volvo, (like others), needs to bring out some sort of a turbo direct injected diesel/high tech battery hybrid with plug in. Stop telling us it will be out in a couple years.
