I have always admired the XC90 Since 2003. I remember driving my 2000 S80 to Albany and watching a beautiful black XC90 pass thinking that I can't wait to get of my very own. Well a wife and 2 kids later I finally got one of my own. Let me start by saying that I purchased this car at a used car dealer. It has 165K miles and it rides a tad rough and noisy. Meaning it sounds a bit bangy under the hood when driving over potholes or bumps and the East Coast roads have plenty of both. The engine sounds loud turbo like but in the cabin. I took it to get an oil change. The mechanic stated that the rear differential had a leak. He asked if I had a warranty and that I should take it to a dealer. Right after purchasing the car I took to this forum and have seen good and bad things about the car. Especially about the tranny I'm afraid that I bought this with my heart and not my head. Should I be worried about getting it looked at sooner than later. I ask because I rarely use it as I commute to NJ about 160 miles daily with my wife in her 4 cylinder GMC Terrain. The car looks great which is why I bought it. Didn't need it per Se but now that I have it I don't want to find out I bought a headache... well really I don't want the wife to find out. LOL. She loves it but can't wait to lecture me about one more toy I've purchased. I've done some cosmetic mods. So far tint to front windows and painted calipers red and center of rotors chrome. Any suggestions would be great. I'll try to post some pics so you can judge for yourself if I should get a heart transplant to avoid trauma to the head if this buy turns out to be a bust! So I'll never decide with my heart again.
