Volvo XC90

by from Denver, CO on June 21, 2011

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.

Our second XC90

by from Cape Cod on January 2, 2012

We bought our first XC90 in 2004 and drove it for 150K miles. It was so great that we traded it in and bought a new XC90 2012. The new 2012 has more features than the 2004 and cost less. My wife is a Real Estate Broker and spends a lot of time in this vehicle. It has the third row seats which are great when you have to drive six people around. It is absolutely terrific in snow nothing stop it. The only issue we have with it is trying to figure out the audio system,which includes Sirius, Bluetooth we use for phone, and a USB connection. There is also a place on the console for what looks like a connection to plug in an Iphone to listen to music or whatever but it does not seem to do anything. Volvo should have included a DVD to explain all the features. So if you are looking for a dependable vehicle to drive in the snow and don't mind that it only gets 19MPG around town get this car. Our 2004 averaged 18MPG around town.

2006 Volvo XC90 Best Vehicle Ever Owned

by from Tampa FL on February 29, 2012

Must have the V-8 which gets great performance and fuel economy. No road noise and great handling vehicle.

Luxury SUV?

Well maybe, or of course it's a Volvo! But don't be fooled because the Volvo XC90 has been around since 2003 and has no redesign yet, but each year the XC90 gets better and better. With the 2012 Volvo XC90 a face-lift front facial, some new body works but not much. As well is in the interior bluetooth and a auto-dimming rearview mirror. My mother just bought a 2012 and it's very good with performance with a 3.2L I6 (240-hp) also 0-60 time about 7.4. The 2012 Volvo XC90 is a a best bet for a 3 row luxury SUV!

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.
