Summary:
WE BOUGHT A 2003 VOLVO XC 90 IN JANUARY 2003, THE VEHICLE IS LESS THAN A YEAR OLD AND HAS ABOUT 12,600 MILES. IN THE LAST SIX WEEKS, WE HAVE HAD FOUR SYSTEM PROBLEMS, BRAKES, CRUISE CONTROL, AC/ DEFROSTER AND MOST RECENTLY AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. I BELIEVE THAT THE TRANSMISSION IS THE MOST SERIOUS PROBLEM SINCE IT FAILED TO OPERATE WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY.THE DEALER REPAIRED THE VEHICLE STATING THAT A CORRUPT SOFTWARE WAS THE CAUSE. VOLVO USA STATED THAT THE "NEW " SOFTWARE WAS A MODIFICATION/UPGRADE WHICH IS BEING PUT IN THE 2004 VEHICLES. MY QUESTION TO VOLVO USA AS TO WHETHER THIS PROBLEM WITH THE 2003 CAUSED THE DESIGN OF THE MODIFICATION WAS NOT AN ADEQUATELY RESPONDED TO. VOLVO USA CLAIMED THAT THERE WERE NO FIGURES AVAILABLE TO ADVISE MYSELF ON HOW MANY 2003 XC 90 HAVE HAD THIS OR OTHER PROBLEMS. I ADVISED VOVLO USA THAT WE ARE VERY DISSATISFIED WITH THE QUALITY AND SAFETY OF THIS VEHICLE. *LA

Summary:
FOR BOTH OUR 2001 VOLVO S60 2.4T AND OUR 2003 VOLVO XC90 2.5T AWD THERE HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS TO REPAIR A TRANSMISSION DEFECT (ESSENTIALLY SAME TRANSMISSION IN BOTH VEHICLES PER VOLVO TECH SUPPORT). BETWEEN 2ND AND 3RD THERE IS INTERMITTENT/UNPREDICTABLE FAILURE TO ENGAGE 3RD IN TIMELY FASHION WITH RESULTANT LOSS OF ACCELERATION AS VEHICLE IS FUNCTIONALLY IN NEUTRAL WITH ENGINE RACING FOR ~0.5-2.5 SECONDS. THIS CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ESPECIALLY WHEN PULLING ON TO A HIGHWAY. WE HAVE EXPERIENCED 2 NEAR COLLISIONS (ALMOST BEING STRUCK FROM BEHIND). VOLVO TECH SUPPORT ACKNOWLEDGES A FLAW IN ENGINEERING WHEREBY SERVO FLUID AIR LOCK OCCURS IN THE 2001. A NEW TRANSMISSION IS SCHEDULED TO BE REPLACED FOR OUR S60, BUT IF THE PROBLEM IS STILL OCCURING IN OUR 2003, WILL THIS REALLY CORRECT THE PROBLEM AS THE TRANSMISSIONS ARE BASICALLY IDENTICAL? THE 2003 XC90 VOLVO SAYS CAN BE REPAIRED WITH "UPGRADED SOFTWARE" (WHICH IS SCHEDULED FOR THAT VEHICLE) BUT THIS REMEDY FAILED WHEN PERFORMED ON OUR 2001 S60. WE HAVE LET THE DEALER KNOW WE FEEL BOTH VEHICLES ARE UNSAFE WITH THIS PROBLEM AND WE ARE NOW STUCK WITH THEM TRYING TO REMEDY BOTH VEHICLES' GLARING DEFECTS. WE ARE NOT AWARE OF A FEDERALLY MANDATED RECALL TO REPAIR THIS VOLVO ACKNOWLEDGED (SAFETY) DEFECT. CAN NHTSA PURSUE THIS? *AK

Summary:
I WAS INVOLVED IN A REAR-END COLLISION WITH MY 2 CHILDREN IN A VOLVO XC90. MY SEAT BACK FAILED DURING THE ACCIDENT AND I AM NOT REFERRING TO THE WHIPS SYSTEM. I SUSTAINED MULTIPLE INJURIES INCLUDING A WHIPLASH INJURY AS WELL AS INJURIES OF MY BACK AND LEFT SHOULDER THAT I BELIEVE WERE EXACERBATED BY THE SEAT BACK ASSUMING A FAIRLY RECLINED POSITION. I ALSO FEAR THAT IF EITHER OF MY CHILDREN HAD BEEN SITTING BEHIND THE DRIVERS SEAT (ESPECIALLY IN A REAR-FACING INFANT SEAT) THEY COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED AS A RESULT OF THIS FAILURE OF THE SEAT BACK. THE VOLVO DEALER/REPAIR SHOP HAS IMPLIED THAT MY WEIGHT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS FAILURE. I WEIGHED ABOUT 218-222 POUNDS AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT. *LA

RIGHT REAR WHEEL BEARING FAILED. SYMPTOMS WERE THAT THE VEHICLE WOULD NOT ACCELERATE OVER 35 MPH. DASHBOARD WARNING LIGHT INDICATED THAT VEHICLE WAS AT RISK OF TIPPING. CAR WAS STRANDED ON HIGHWAY WHILE RETURNING FROM VACATION SOME 400 MILES FROM HOME. WAS ABLE TO LIMP OFF AND INVOKE VOLVO ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM. VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO DEALER WITHIN 30 MINUTES. DEALER WAS UNABLE TO DIAGNOSE PROBLEM FOR 2 DAYS BECAUSE NO FAULT INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED BY ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC COMPUTER. INITIAL SUSPICION WAS A FUEL PRESSURE PROBLEM. DEALER EVENTUALLY DETERMINED THAT RIGHT REAR WHEEL BEARING FAILED, WHICH CAUSED ABS SYSTEM FAULT, WHICH SIGNALED ENGINE NOT TO EXCEED 35 MPH. BEARING REPLACED. STILL WORKING THROUGH DETAILS WITH MY LOCAL DEALER AND VOLVO ZONE REP. I HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED MANY OF THE ELECTRICAL, TURBO BACK-PRESSURE "HOWL", AND FIT-AND-FINISH PROBLEMS (LOOSE MOLDINGS, DRIVER'S DOOR HANDLED) THAT HAVE BEEN REFERENCED BY OTHERS.

After reading the messages on this site. I come to learn that my situation w/ my 2004 XC90 is not unique. I'm having the same common problems as others on this email thread....break adjustments at 7500 mi service, original tires worn down by 22k mi requiring a wheel aligment. Two weeks after the 22k service, I started hearing a scrapping sound. I took the car back to the dealer for troubleshooting, two days later, they simply left me a voice mail, telling me that they're ordering a new transmission to replace my old one without an explaination to the root cause. I called back and they would only say that they found metal shavings in the transmission pan. I couldn't get a better explaination. Does anyone know what's happening with Volvo's quality assurance for the XC90? Any agencies or analyst probing into the situations at Volvo for the XC90?...

I'm very sorry I do not have time to write a longer comment at the moment. We have a new 2003 XC90 we bought in Dec. of last year. We are now trying to deal with the Volvo people because my car has been in the shop a total of 60 days this year and I've not even had it for one year. I can't tell you our frustration. This is our 4th volvo and I will never own another one. I do not think they will let us out of this (Under the Lemon Law unless we want to sue them) From what we understand VOLVO has never ever taken even one car back. They only do a trade. But with our experience we just want totally out (no more volvos). The law is on their side because they have given us a loaner each time and will make an offer to trade. So from what we understand - we have no chance under the Lemon Law. It makes me so sad. We bought the car for safety bacause a man ran a red light and rolled my SUV and almost killed me - so we got this car. I don't even feel safe in this because it has had problems with the anti skid, axle, wheels (going bad at 10,000 miles), 3 hoses bad, and computer problems. Tell me if you would feel safe in this. You can publish this. I'm not sure if I said yes on my registration - but I do want people to know. The hardest part is that they will not work with us and from what we understand this is the way they operate. It may be something you want to investigate for your consumer!...

Hi, Have you hade any luck with Volvo since you wrote your comments on Woman Motorist? I'm having serious problems with my XC90 as well and I'm trying to get them to buy back the vehicle under the Massachusetts Lemon Law. What state are you from? Please email me at Allen.PC@Comcast.net - Thanks, Jim Allen

I just read your comment about the XC 90. We have had MAJOR issues with our 2004 XC90. I just sent a certified letter to Volvo along with all of my service receipts and emails between myself and Annapolis Volvo. I qualify for a refund under the Virginia Lemon Law. What problems have you had and what state are you in?

I've had problems with the tires on my 2004 XC90 wearing unevenly at 6500 miles, and again at 12,000. The dealer replaced all four tires once, and the car is headed to the shop tomorrow for the same problem. Have you had any luck with Volvo since your e-mail?

I purchased an xc90 in September for safety. It is our second volvo. It has broken down three times. All three times, the car just died while I was driving it. I have two young children, and they were with me both times. We are also trying to get them to buy back the car under the Mass Lemon law and it is a struggle....

Hello, My name is Aimee, and in May of this year I was able to get a check from Volvo for the full sticker price of my 2004 Volvo XC90. We had problems from day one, mostly with the axle and the brakes. I was treated HORRIBLY by the rep from Volvo....my husband literally almost came to blows with the man....but in the end my persistance was worth it. If you need any help, email me and I will give you my contact info at Volvo: lenaimeebng@yahoo.com

I purchased an xc90 in December. Took it in for 7500 mile service and now car just stalls in the middle of driving. Volvo says they can't find what's wrong with it. Have you found what the problem is?

I found your article interesting. At 16,000 miles my tires on my XC90 are worn out and they wore unevenly. The service manager told me today that they are seeing the 18 inch tires wearing out that soon. He said when I get new tires I needed to have my car aligned because the tires wore unevenly. I asked if that wasn't checked when I brought it in for service. Of course, it is supposed to be, but noone said anything to me about it being out of line. The other frustrating thing is I have the 18 inch tires. The only replacement tires available are the same tires that are on it, which has a V rating. I have learned that to mean it is a soft tire rated for speeds up to 149 mph. Now, I ask you, who drives that fast? I decided to have the wheels changed to the 17 inch. The service manager told me by law they cannot change my wheels. I can't believe it. It looks like I will have to spend $1000 every six months for new tires.

I have a 2004 T6 (for the last six months) which I am in the process of having Volvo take back; under CT Lemon Law. The vehicle has been in the shop about eight times. The most serious problem is that the steering rack has been replaced several times and it is still not right; even with a tech from Sweden over-seeing the last rack replacement with a specially designed steering rack. There is a clunking sound and feeling over bumpy surfaces. Very frustrating six months. I will never buy another Volvo again. Too bad I like the styling and comfort so much with this vehicle. Did you get a check back from Volvo or did they give you another vehicle? I am not really familiar with the process. Please let me know. richardrosano@hotmail.com

I have a Singapore registered Volvo, 2.5T late 2003 Model. After 3 months, wheel alignment problems, steering problems, suspension related problems. This car went to the workshop 6 times after purchase, in less than a year. My list of grouses stretched for 2 A4 pages long. Other irritations include a car phone system that has repeated feedbacks, wing mirrors that won't open out after folding in. So much for being Car of the Year! Thank goodness folks at motoring magazines did not even mention the XC90 any more after 2003. My first volvo and likely my last.

My XC90 has been in the shop over 30 times. We've had drive shaft problems, leaky sunroof, and the biggest problem was that the channels in the roof have flooded into my car 4 separate times. Volvo has agreed to replace my car (2004 with 14,256 miles), however, since the 2005's are out, cannot get the same car. I am being asked to pay $3,000 for the trade. I will get a 2005 with additional options of climate package and 18" alloy wheels. These total about $1300, so I'll really be paying $1,700. They are still charging me destination of $685 and documentation of $399 and my question to anyone is should these charges apply if you're trading a car via lemon law? Seems to me that they would be "collateral" charges which shouldn't apply since I already paid when I originally purchased the car and shouldn't incur twice. I'm not familiar with this and if anyone has advice I'd appreciate it. I guess I should be lucky they're replacing the car since I've heard so many horror stories about Volvo not doing a lot of trades. thanks

We had to replace the tires ($1000 !!) at 22,000 miles because of uneven tire wear. 18,750 miles later...... we have to replace them again!!!! Volvo sees no alignment problem and just can't explain the problem!! We are also in need of our THIRD set of brakes at only 50,000. The service people are so rude. www.womanmotorist.com/index.php/news/main/1635/event=view
