Hello, I'm Brandon.

For the 2005 XC90

Number 1 thing you need to be concern is the transmission. These transmission need to be service every 50k miles.

Number 2 is the fuel control module.

Number 3 is the instrument gauge cluster.

These are top 3 things that commonly failed.

Please rate me positive, thank you. Let me know if you have further questions.

Top 3 components to watch out for : Transmission, oil trap (PCV) and the alternator.
