Traded a 2001 BMW X5 that I thought was the best until I test drove the Volvo. So far, getting about 20 mpg with the V8...much better than I got with the 3.0 in the BMW. Handles as well as the BMW since Volvo re-tuned the suspension in '07. Great ride. The Dynaudio stereo with the Sirius is awesome.
The Xenon headlights that turn with the steering and the comfortable seating.
Add a tilt down feature to the right sideview mirror and power to the tilt/telescopic steering wheel.
