2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

I was close to buying a VW Touareg before I test drove the Volvo. I found the volvo to have excellent power in the 2.5T, better mileage, and more space. I prefer the boxier look over the bubble look that is currently so popular. Only have a few 100 miles, but am really impressed with handling, especially on Hwy. Mileage is mostly city, so in the lower mid teens, but on hwy it was very close to advertised, 22-23mpg. It does not have any cheesy extras you really don't need, very practical. A bit sluggish at parking lot speed but if you punch it front tires will screach out without hesitation. I'll follow up in a few months but for now I'm very pleased overall with this purchase.

Best Features

Looks, space, features, sitting position and view.

Worst Features

Slow speed handling (must be a front wheel drive thing), wife and I do not like the brushed aluminum trim on door handles, just does not match decor well.
