    2007 Volvo XC90 - FWD

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: Quality and engineering

    Advice: Don't waste your money - I should have bought the Acrura

    I bought mine with the DVD player...didn't work when I tried to turn it on. I was told that I have to use the remote control. When I asked why the buttons on the DVD player don't function, the technician at the dealership just shrugged. Wow!!! ...and that's not the worst of it, just the most ridiculous!!!

    2006 Volvo XC90 - V8 AWD

    Pros: BLIS

    Cons: steering wheel

    Advice: Do the overseas delivery

    Picked up my 2007 V-8 XC-90 Gothenburg. Drove thru Germany for 10 days. The car handled like a dream. Cruised around 80 mph most of the time had it up to 120mph twice. I was impressed. My only complaint is the steering wheel. Where the cruise and stereo controls are located that is where I rest my hands. The comfort and how quiet the xc90 was great. When you put the pedal down there was plenty of power. Plenty of room.

    2006 Volvo XC90 - FWD

    Pros: The stability and 'solid' driving and corning capabilities.

    Cons: It has a blind spot on the drivers side.

    Advice: If you are looking for comfort, safety and a solid crossover, this car is for you.

    We purchased the 2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T with 8500 miles. This car was a loaner and is in immaculate condition. The car drives like a Lincoln Town Car (smooth) and performs like a BMW.

    2007 Volvo XC90 - V8 AWD

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: The entire performance and interior reliability.

    Advice: If you have more than 1 child dont buy it. The third row is useless except for VERY small children and they need a carseat anyway. You can't get to the third row hardly at all.

    If you want a car that looks great and has no reliability, then this is your car. More than frustrated. I feel as though I was taken advantage of. This car has more things falling off than my trees in fall. Service dept doesnt want to deal with it anymore, they told me its normal wear and tear. AFTER LESS THAN A YEAR?! Steering fluid replacement and brakes after only 20K. Again, was told its normal. I never got over 15 MPG. For the amount of gas it takes, I would prefer an Excursion or Hummer.

    2003 Volvo XC90 - AWD

    Pros: Third row is conveinent for small, very small children.

    Cons: The amount of time I spend at the dealership drives me crazy. Maintenance costs-AHHHH

    Advice: Step away from the Volvo XC90.

    What a gross waste of my money. New brakes twice a year . replacing tires 2 times a year. Tranmission replaced at 80,000 miles. Dripping fluids. Leaking Oil. Drinks gasoline like humans drink water. If you don't have extra time to be at the dealership three times a month , do yourself a favor DONT BUY A VOLVO XC90!

    2007 Volvo XC90 - V8 AWD

    Pros: Seats

    Cons: Quality Control.

    Advice: Avoid. You wont know if they paid attention to the build of your vehicle until you take it home.

    Comfortable seats but atrocious reliability. Constant squeaks and rattles that dont seem fixable. In the shop 6 times the first 4 months. Very dissappointing purchase.
