I purchased the XC90 December 26, 2004 at the same time gas prices hit $2 a gallon in Las Vegas. My Ford got 13 MPG and I saw the cost only going up. I returned from Phoenix today (9/12/10) and averaged 23.7 MPG with the 2.5 T FWD. It has been a trouble free purchase with the original Michelin tires still on the vichele.
Leg and Head room-I am 6 ft 7 inches tall and can wear my hat inside the cabin.
Go green with a hybrid; if the 2012/2015 model got 30 mpg I would buy another one.
