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.

XC90 6-cyl

  • 109,000 miles
We started the car there was a clicking sound from the engine, we drove for about 3-4 minutes. I noticed the ac wasn't working well and my husband who was driving looked down at the temperature gauge and it was in the red. Since we were at a red light and we couldn't pull over he turned the car off to let it cool down. Once the stop light turned green other cars had to go around us until we let it cool down enough to restart and pull over. The engine was really hot. He checked the coolant which was full and the oil which was also fine. We then had our vehicle towed to the dealer. The dealer said it was the cooling fan circuit and they removed and replaced the cooling fan assembly.
