2006 Volvo XC90 V8 Volvo Ocean Race Edition 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)

Review

Got this car for thousands off because I bought it in 2007 when it was a 2006 model, but it was new. Very happy with the looks outside and inside. After a 5 months I had some problems, some anti-skid message that kept coming up, they said it was a computer problem but it happened twice. Possibly due to extremely horrible speed bumps where I live the car began making weird clicks when the gas/brakes were pressed; brake pads, alignment, sub-frame, etc all needed work. Right window makes whistling noise. DVD system headphones sound fuzzy sometimes. Very fast for an SUV, and I always feel safe.

Best Features

Big engine, very fast for an SUV. GPS system, pricey but I love the positioning and very very easy to use, and can be used while in motion. Extremely comfortable seats. Love the tailgate, it is great to sit on! I also drive a 550i but find myself missing the Volvo.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, stereo system is horrible, impossible to get iPod integration without removing the entire system and spending tons of money. Better reliability.
