Summary:

You can spend a lot more money and you can't buy a much better SUV

Faults:

Home Link Sun Visor needed to be replaced.

General Comments:

Traded in a 2003 T6. Totally different vehicle. V8 power and responsiveness vs. T6 sluggishness and roughness.

Ride much better in 7 seat V8. Worth extra money..

All in all great value for the money. Killer sound system.

Rock solid ride with power at 80+ MPH. Steering could be a bit tighter otherwise well designed and manufactured.

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

What a great road car! I bought the US spec XC-90 V8 in Italy and drove it several months before shipping it home. This is the most comfortable vehicle I've ever driven. I experienced no seat fatigue on a 9 hour drive to Munich. The V8 has more than adequate power to pass at European highway speeds over 90 MPH. Acceleration is smooth and confident, the 6-speed transmission is a perfect match for the V8. Handling on wet roads was very stable.

Summary:

AMAZING!!!

Faults:

The Rear Parking assistants, tend to fail in some situations.

General Comments:

This is an amazing vehicle, and I would buy another Volvo xc90 in the future. Even with four children in the 2nd and 3rd rows, everyone is still very comfortable, and a bonus is the rear seat entertainment system. The 3rd row is not overly large, so older children are most comfortable in the 2nd row, which there is plenty of leg room. This is an all around wonderful vehicle, and I would highly encourage interested car buyers to look at the xc90.
