Notes: The 2007 XC90 got a facelift -- the good kind, not the "hollywood" kind -- and has so far not had the same transmission problems that a few owners of previous model years have complained about.

The contact owns a 2007 Volvo XC90. The contact stated while driving 45 mph he attempted to accelerate; however, the vehicle failed to move forward.

XC90 6-cyl

  • 73,000 miles
Despite Volvo's knowledge of problems with the XC90 transmission, when it failed completely, I took it to an aamco dealer because there was no local Volvo dealer. The tach was all the way to the right and the wheels would do nothing. It was very dangerous. Despite have the extended 100K warranty, and this prior knowledge, Volvo corporate refused to assist in any way with the $6K cost of the repairs because I didn't have it repaired at a Volvo dealer. I was told by aamco that it was dangerous to be driving. I would never own another Volvo of any type.
