XC90 Transmission Nightmares

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


My '05 T6 XC90 has already had three transmissions replaced. Lucky for me it's all under warranty but based on the frequency of the problem I'm afraid that the new transmission will fail after my warranty has expired. Looks like the only solution for my problem, since I cannot use the lemon law, will be to get rid of this thing as soon as I get it back. The dealer has had it now for two weeks. They can't figure out why the new transmission went out after only one week!

Best Features

Third row fold flat seats and rear entertainment controls.

Worst Features

Volvo already made the improvements with the introduction of the V8 and 6 speed transmission.
