Other than the above faults, which are being dealt with, I cannot really complain about the XC90.
I do have a couple of issues ie pulling off from a stop start; the gearbox does tend to have an alarming delay before you actually pull away; a bit frightening sometimes!
I am told this can be remedied by Volvo with their magic box of tricks for a price. I suspect also rear vision is very limited when reversing. Thank god for the r.p.s.
I haven't owned the car that long to make a really honest opinion of ownership, but for what little time I have had the car, I have enjoyed it, except for the above comments.
I have calculated mpg around town is about 22mpg, and on a run about 32. I am hoping on the run to Devon from brum to average 35mpg+ @ 70mph. Would this sound about right?
One last thing. I must admit when driving this car I feel really safe, unlike my 94 Range Rover classic, which does tend to wallow a bit, but that's what makes a Rangie fun I suppose!
