costly to maintain

The car looked great when i viewed it the first time and felt ok when i test drove it for a few miles and after purchase all types of warning lights came on including the check engine light. The make and model of the car is good, i just feel like the dealership did not disclose all the issues and tricked me into buying it


The 2009 Volvo XC90: Comfort, Luxury, Versatility

I purchased my 2009 Volvo XC90 last year to serve the purpose of a comfortable commuter car, and considering I payed next to nothing for the vehicle itself, my expectations weren't too high. However, after only owning the vehicle for a very short time, I found myself thoroughly impressed with the car. It became apparent to me that Volvo built their cars with a different mindset then their german rivals, as none of the features that my Volvo was equipped with were revolutionary for the time: heated seats, automatic climate, rear seat entertainment, etc. All very nice options to have, but they could be just as easily had on an X5. However, getting behind the driver's seat of the Volvo is completely different from a BMW or Audi, as the car feels just as heavy as it is. Rather than trying to mask the weight of the car, Volvo chose the path of embracing it - and it worked. Driving the XC90 is like driving a comfortable, leather-lined tank: it's confidence inspiring not in terms of speed, but road presence. To sum it up, I would absolutely recommend the XC90 to anyone in the market for a quality used SUV, as Swedish engineering proved itself to be a pleasant surprise to a German-biased individual such as myself.


Love that Car

Good on gas. Never had a problem mechanically other than routine tune ups and oil changes. It was very good and comfortable on road trips.
