..."Great car. Styling is not ultra modern but I think classic. Performance is ok. A V-8 would help but we get over 20 MPG with the 6."...

Didn't expect the clunky-ness

...* putting key into ignition takes much accuracy * confusion with central controls for entertainment/ventilation - not intuitive * navigation - very confusing * the pop-up screen for rear assist and navigation being separate instead of built in. it powers upward when in reverse then returns in drive. Imagine going in reverse for 3 seconds and this screen going up hten down while you're driving forward. It sounds like the first component that will malfunction * must slam doors to shut * door lock/unlock system: it takes multiple presses to get the doors to unlock (except driver's) * no power...

..."Happy with the car, I've driven the v8 for 2 months and definitely satisfied.
Looked at BMW, Audi, toyotas for an suv, for this car with the v8 and price I paid this was the best value and no regrets so far, admit this is 3rd Volvo.
I stopped driving my other cars (honda minivan for kids and Porsche 911 who's tires are getting flat spots, this one much more comfortable and easy, handles towing small boat fine."...

...Great ride.....Not Bad on gas...ample room for 7 people.
Amazing 12 speaker surround sound stereo system with 6 disc CD changer.
Sun Roof. GPS Nav System. All around great vehicle. Only thing I would ike to se is easier access to the back row seating. Would definatly get another one!...

Best vehicle I've ever owned

...Up to 95,000 miles and going strong. Cost more to maintain than my Toyota 4Runner did, but well worth it.
The Toyota always felt like work, while the Volvo feels like home.
You sit on most seats, but sit in these. Will it easily do 120mph? Without admitting to anything, I'd have to say yes.
The 5cyl turbo is the way to go, as this engine/trans combo seem to be bullet-proof. I test drove this and the Honda Pilot, and am glad our family of six is moving in the Volvo...

Great SUV!!

..."Volvo XC90 is extremely comfortable and well appointed.
One of the most driveable SUV's on the market. Gas mileage is not great though but ride comfort, styling road worthiness and safety more than make up for it."...

Love My XC90

...Safety second to none. Fantastic ride, always under control even at high speeds, very maneuverable for a heavy SUV, and very peppy off the line. Cons: Poor visibility when backing. Overall: Moderately good gas mileage for a heavy SUV--but use premium gas as Volvo recommends. You'll get your money's worth because you'll get better gas mileage + better performance from your engine. The sense of luxury is very high in this car--I look forward to driving it every day. Good reliability--only one major problem in 3 years of ownership--right front bearing went out--$450. Need to do high quality...


..."Performance has been somewhat underwhelming and the engine sounds a bit overworked.
The vehicle is comfortable, but lacks the refined design and handling that similar cars in its class offer.
The third row seats have just enough leg room for my kids but even an adult of average height would likely find it to be an uncomfortable squeeze."...
