I am not a Volvo expert just an owner. I get my transmission fluid service done every 20,000 miles. It is $367.00 at the dealership but I have had no problems at all. A little service goes a long long way. Volvo xc90, 2004, 60,780 miles, T5.
The other responder doesn't know Volvos; you can't replace the tranny fluid like on other vehicles. It's supposed to last well over 200,000 miles. The transmission on my 2004 XC70 is now shot at only 110,000 miles...$4000.
My Volvo mechanic (15 years at dealer) says that this is one of many reflections of lesser quality parts now on Volvos. I've already had to spend $900. on a fuel pump, radiator now leaky,...bad quality.

sounds like it probably needs a transmission. volvo has been warrantying the transmissions in the 6 cylinder xc90's so you may get lucky if you have a t6. take it to a dealership and they may warranty the whole job or they may pay for the new transmission but you have to pay the labor to install it
timing belt at 105000 miles,transmission service when the car tells you. it will say service trans. side note only have trans serviced at volvo dealer. no one else can rest trans to the new fluid. belive me it really matters
With all due respect, you clearly lack the skills or knowledge to diagnose and fix this yourself or you would not be asking here.
Just do what the message is telling you and get the vehicle to a repair garage promptly, preferably a Volvo main dealer. The longer you delay, the bigger the final repair bill as this won't fix itself.
well you would need a full brake service$120.00, transmission flush$150.00, oil change/tire rotation$30.00, fuel injector cleaning$50.00. That would be a 100,000 mile service some dealers have deals if you do it all at once i would say about anywhere from $300.00-$400.00.
Dont buy the T6 version. They have had TONS of transmission problems and it runs about 5-6K for a new one (dealer). My experience has seen some on their third transmission, and in my shop there are currently at least six waiting for transmissions which are on backorder due to the demand. Buy the 2.5T (5 Cyl.) or the V8, both of those are much better vehicles.
Add me to the list. Just got back from a Volvo dealership in Chicago and was told the 'winding' noise we're experiencing during deceleration in our 2004 XC90 is due to a failing transmission,so i would suspect the same accelerating. hope all works out for you
