Check on the XC90's in terms of the V6's vs the V8's. The V6's have timing belts vs the timing chain of the V8's. Seems there was also a few years in which the transmissions has issues. There were a couple of threads on pelican parts on the XC90 that were detailed.

XC90 never came with a V6- it was available in a variety of I-5s and I-6s plus that Yamaha-built V8. I'm not interested in the V8 as it essentially eliminates the inherent safety of Volvo's transverse-inline mounting concept. Also, trust me, my wife doesn't need the power of a V-8.

You are right. I meant the inline 6. Avoid the T6 transmission.
