2005 Volvo XC90 8 cylinder
Very nice vehicle
Have had to replace the shifter knob.
A plastic piece on the driver seat has also cracked.
Also the plastic cover on both headlight washers have been lost or stolen.
Did a lot of research on this vehicle before it was purchased. After reading reviews on the vehicle, and how bad the T6 engine and transmission combo was, I decided to purchase the V8 model. The V8 motor is manufactured by Yamaha, and the 6 speed transmission is also manufactured by a Japanese company. This combination is fantastic. City mileage is 17 to 18, and about 24 to 25 mpg on extended highway trips.
The suspension is a little stiff, but the seats are fantastic, which makes up for it. Tons of room in the cabin.
The AWD is fantastic in the Wisconsin winters.
Overall, very pleased so far.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
