Beware Service costs

I was a loyal volvo customer until we bought an XC90. This car is the worst lemon we've ever had. We have dumped over $10M into this truck already on electrical problems, allignment problems, a transmission that failed at 52M miles, etc. <p>Most recently we've incurred over $800 in service charges for a "service engine" light that has been worked on at the dealership for 2+ weeks and still not been diagnosed. <p>As much as I love the styling and design of this car, the absolute lack of reliability in this model has turned me off Volvo's forever.<p>Buyer Beware.

Huh!<p>If this is the worst lemon you've owned, what constitutes as the best lemon? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Beware Service costs (jlerick)

Sorry to hear about your problems with the XC90. I find myself hoping my last Swedespeed post ( sometime in the future) doesn't paraphrase your first post. Interested in knowing which model you have and if you've done any towing.<p>My advice would be that it is 4th and long and time to punt!
