I enjoy driving this vehicle and feel extremely safe in it My only disappointment is in the gas mileage. I traded in a Tahoe in perfect condition to get rid of the 8 cylinder engine only to get less gas mileage. If I had know about the mileage I would have gone with the more powerful 8 cyl.Volvo as it had a smoother ride and more power on the road.
I love the fold down 3rd row seating. When I am not carrying a lot of people it allows me a sizable cargo area. The 3rd seat is more than adequate and we have traveled several hundred miles with people comfortably seated there (myself included).
Having the cruise control on the steering wheel causes me to switch it on accidentally frequently. This has caused me no problems so far but I have heard of cruise control problems on wet roads etc. A little worrisome.
