2005 Volvo XC90 T6 3.0 Litre from Australia and New Zealand
Should have listened to users on Car Survey
Tranmission 3 times.
Weird noises (clunks when turning).
To replace the wiper blades, had to replace the whole wiper unit, as parts were not available ($780 for 2).
Turbo box cover cracked ($600).
Should have listened to all the reviews on Car Survey, but got "emotionally" attached to the Volvo.
Just problem after problem with reliability.
Also thirsty (knew that when we bought the car, but petrol prices were not that high at that time!!)
Last time we had it in for repair, were been told things will get worse with Volvo!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sorry, you are taking your car to the wrong garage - you do NOT have to replace all that to change wiper blades!!! Should have bought a D5 version - that is a far better car with almost faultless reliability (gearbox issues are on T6 models generally) and mid 30's MPG - one of the best cars made.
