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 transmission on the 2007 Volvo xc 90 T6 are failing early at an alarming rate. Mine has failed at 70K miles, leaving me stranded. This is noted to be a common occurrence and is well described in discussion forums, with many transmissions failing before 30K miles.
