Avoid XC90 T6 – Transmission Issues

Model years  2003-2005 were made with automatic transmissions that fail early and often.

The parts guys at my Volvo dealership told me recently that it’s the XC90 T6′s that are the ones to avoid at all costs. They said it’s a GM designed/partially assembled transmission on these XC90′s that was a pile of junk from the drawing board. They said there aren’t anywhere near the number of transmission problems with the T5′s or the V8 model XC90s.

Here’s the XC90 T6 Transmission thread for more on that. Please post to that if you’ve had a XC90 T6 transmission failure.
