2004 Volvo XC90 SUV 2.5T Fwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I currently own a 2003 BMW 530i, which I LOVE to drive and I needed a people mover that's stylish, safe (3 kids) comfortable and good on gas. Saw the XC90 last yr when it came out and was impressed with its styling. Fell in love with it on my test drive. I drove a friends X5 and was not happy with the ride, ruled out the Touareg and the Cayenne because of the lack of the third row, the MDX because it's just an expensive Pilot and I'm not a fan of American SUVs (too big, trucky and bad on gas).Anyone looking at luxury level SUVs to definitely check this one out before making their final decision. Volvo did good with this one!!


Best Features

Split rear doors and the built in child booster seat along with the exterior styling.


Worst Features

More power (have to get used to the turbo lag when accelerating), more intuitive steering wheel control placement, power rear gate. (You expect a bit more luxury features for the money)

Review

My first Volvo, but I am very happy with the XC90. Rides great, stable in any weather, very comfortable, looks great. Unpretentious.


Best Features

Everything about it.


Worst Features

Wish fuel economy was better, but still comparable to competitors. Video for reverse, air pressure monitor, additional radar/crash detection for front/sides.

Review

We were one of the first to buy this SUV - purchased in December 2002. Love the car - it combines the tank like/safety feel of the 240, while giving you all the bells, whistles and style making it a true winner!!!


Best Features

The ride is smooth - your vision is terrific, and the SUV gives you a feeling of safety.


Worst Features

More storage space inside the SUV. Would like clarification on the optional extra 2 seats in the rear of the SUV - can they be used for children in car seats/boosters?

Review

Love this car!


Best Features

Ease of drive, pickup when you want it, space


Worst Features

Love this car- only complaints- the location of the clock between the tach and the speedometer means only the driver can see it, and the flimsy keys which both broke within 2 weeks.
