I had a loud clicking or chattering noise that was coming from my left front wheel area on my Volvo. This was somewhat maddening, as it would come and go. When it got so pronounced, I took it to my dealer's mechanic; he heard it, but couldn't pinpoint the exact source. He did rule out wheel bearing failure, and due to its' extreme left location, ruled out any transmission or angle drive issues (which had themselves been recently serviced). Fin...

2007 Volvo XC90 Reviews

Clogs in the AC Drain Tube have resulted in over $1,000 of additional charges because the clog had to be cleared $125, it caused water to leek in the cabin so I had to dry and clean the driver side carpet $270, and it ruined the A/C Blower Motor $785. I can't understand how the clogging occured and how to prevent it in the future so I'm afraid it will happen again.

I got my 2007 XC90 new in 2007. The first month the air conditioning quit working. It was a computer program problem. The dealer repaired it. About six months later the signal arm on the steering column quit working properly. The signal failed to turn off after making a turn and the headlight high beam would not turn on. After dealer repair it was still difficult to get the signal arm postion just right so that the high beam would turn on- a very poor design. At 51,000 miles the AM ban on the radio failed. Research showed it may be a loose connection at the rear window antenae connector. The dealer said it was a $500 repair. Needless to say I get along without the AM band.At 75,000 miles i had broken motor mounts. I also had periodic error display telling me the anti-skid feature was temporarily disengaged. The dealer said the problem was either a control unit or a steering sensor. The control unit would be $600. The sensor would be $1100. All plus labor. I was also told the vacumn pump had a small oil leak- repair cost $750. Needless to say I am now having to budget ongoing car repairs.
This was my first luxury car purchase. I knew Volvo made a safe vehicle and assumed this luxury vehicle would be dependable. That is why I was OK with the price. This has been the most disappointing car purchase I have made. I am 60 years old so there have been a few cars. THe only true postive aspect about this XC90 are the seats. They are the great seats particularly on long trips.
I would not recommend this car. I could have purchased a Chevy, saving money and having the sinilar repair issues.

I bought my 2007 XC90 in 2009 used. Within months, I was having problems with this car. This is the worst car I have ever had in regards to repairs. My Acura was much more reliable. Almost every time I take my car in for an oil change,something else is wrong. Granted, some of it may be the dealer trying to get more business, but a LOT of things are items I noticed were wrong and knew something was quite right. I have had to partially pay for a Valve Body replacement on the transmission, been told, the stay arm is bent, the bushings are bad, the motor mounts are loose, th toe Link is bent,I need new struts and springs, the serpentine belt is cracking, the control Arm and Bushings are bad and the vaccum pump is leaking oil. Not to mention I had to get new rotors for the front and back. Plus the everyday maintance type things, brake pads, alignments, tires, etc. etc. I think I have learned my lesson with Volvo. They may be safe, but only if you repair all the things that go wrong very quickly. So, I should have just added another $10k and purchased something else. I am super disappointed and can't wait to get rid of this money pit!

I have had my 2007 XC90 for two months. I always wanted to own one and hope that I have not made a bad choice. I noticed an unsual noise (almost like an old rusted spring sound)whenever pressing the brakes at any given speed. It also sounds like something is wrong with the front passenger side tire system at this time as well. I have taken it back to the dealer twice and they say everything checked out okay though the annoying noise is still there. About 3 weeks after my purchase, the low tire pressure sensor light appeared and is still on a month later even though the tire pressure is ok. I plan to go back to the dealer on next week for the third time in less than 3 months. I have never had this many isuues with car in so little time. I have had my last car for 10 years and only had repirs on it three times. Looks like this may be a trade in within the next year if things don't change.

I bought my 2007 Volvo XC90 Last Year,Its been a great Car.I have a
service reminder indicator message and the gold triangle light that I need to reset since the car was serviced.I tried the key to position 1 and 2 while pressing the mileage 1 reset and it still pops up.any suggestions would be appreciated.
