We’ve put over 120k miles (of its 151k) on our XC90 now and I am still delighted by its ride and general comfort. So far, it been excellent! My wife likes it so much she has declined a new XC90 as she likes our current one just fine!

Indeed an excellent driving experience, however, I found 2013 XC90 cabin heating is way slower than our 97 850 and 2001 V70XC.

Is something in decline, failing -- a remedy before extreme weather arrives?

Just went to Jiffy Lube for Transmission Fluid Exchange for my 2005 Volvo XC90, it has black color fluid. Well, they did tremendous job, the flush went well, and it works perfectly fine. No slipping gear, running smooth... Now my Volvo is running like black stallion again!

I got the same truck with the executive package. Got it as a $500 mechanics special with 238,000 miles on it, engine barely ran. Plugs, PCV, Intake manifold gasket and six remanufactured fuel injectors and now it runs like new.
