The antenna does not accommodate the stereo/tv/gps. So you have to adjust to lower quality in order for the stereo to receive reception. And there are other problems mentioned above regarding the stereo.
The brakes are making noise again.
My average mpg is now at 15.6
The GPS will just start operating on its own.
The head liner has come undone. The carpet has come undone twice
The interior floor lights do not always shut off when lit on the approach of vehicle.
A speaker has been replaced.
When running correctly I truly enjoy the vehicle. But seldom does said vehicle not have an issue.
The dealership has been reluctant to call this car a lemon and for an additional $11,000.00 offered to get me in a 2006. I said, "No." The then agreed to extend the warranty to 6 years 100,000 miles, but that was over a month ago and I still have not seen any paperwork regarding the same.
I have no plans to ever purchase another Volvo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree with all your comments, I have just rejected my XC90 after 4 months. The dealer did buy it back, but at 4K less than I paid for it, wheel bearing went, computer didn't always work, tyres and tracking faulty. Volve customer services very unhelpful and stated they dealt with the dealers! It was the most expensive car I have ever owned and the most unreliable I have ever owned. Never agin would I buy a Volvo or recommend it! It looks and drives well, but its Trouble with a capital 'T'.
