#1 of 22 XC90 Air Cond Fails @ Highway Speeds
May 29, 2006 (5:55 pm)
We've had our XC90 ONLY two weeks and highway speeds (70-80 mph) our Air Conditioning is intermittent. But in town, it was fine. Anyone else had/has this problem. Memorial day weekend was in the 90s, and we were really PO'd.

Yes. The dealer treated us like royalty. I mean ROYALTY!! Gave us a gorgeous loaner S60R and found the problem - bad sensor downstream from the compressor. Replaced it, and the car has been great ever since. Hope your issues work out.

Thanks so much for the tip... our 2nd dealer in town was as nice as the first, but also failed to find the problem. Now with this info in hand, the next visit should be a little more productive.

I have an 05 xc90 2.5 and the a/c always seems to smell like mildew; I live in FL so I run it on recirc a lot; do you think this can be avoided by running fresh air more? If so, this is not the vehicle to own here in June-Sept.
#7 of 22 XC90 A/C noise
Feb 19, 2009 (2:24 pm)
My wife and I just bought a 2007 XC90 3.2 with 35K miles on it. We love the vehicle but when the A/C is on it makes a whine similar to a worn power steering pump. This is the second 2007 XC90 we have driven for a couple of days and both of them had this same issue. I was just wondering if this is A) Normal and if not then B) is it a common fix others have made.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have the same problem to date with my new 2006 XC90 , Car spend two weeks at the Volvo garage twice and they did see it as a problem , said it was normal feature of the car, I also contacted Volvo - HQ in Sweden the Customer Services and they said the same.
I will not buy another Volvo or recommend one to anyone .
I lad a tough time with the dealers and Sweden
The Car had 15 annoying problems from new,(from day one) and still many to date.

#9 of 22 XC90 A/C Problem

I have a 2006 XC90 and the A/C has stopped blowing on high. It is blowing cold air at probably it's normal operating speed but it is not fast enough to cool the vehicle in 90 degree tempartures.
#10 of 22 Driver side air not cold
Aug 07, 2010 (8:43 am)
Our '06 XC90 air is blowing cold on the passenger side and in the rear, but not cooling on the driver side. I know it has a leak, but I have added refrigerant but that doesn't seem to be the only problem- any ideas what might be wrong?
