2007 Volvo XC90 SUV V8 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought an '06 T5 after driving a Honda Accord EX-V6 for 7 years and immediately fell in love with the Volvo fit and finish. I originally wanted a V8 but thought the T5 would get much better gas mileage - wrong! Then I saw the V8 Sport on the road and knew I would have one soon. What I didn't realize was how different the T5 and V8 Sport would be. The growl of the V8 is awesome, the Sport exterior and interior is phenomenal, and all the extras from the Technology/Climate and Convenience packages are to die for. Forget the others. This is the vehicle I will drive everyday for the next 10 years or so, no matter the price of gas - it's worth it!


Best Features

The V8, the 19" Vulcanis rims, the so-cool active Bi-Xenons, the immensely comfortable seating, the blue instrumentation, the deafening sound system with complimentary Sirius, and the overall fit and finish.


Worst Features

Less road noise from the Pirelli tires. This was very irritating on my T5 once I passed 15,000 miles, but the lesser profile tires on the Sport should be better so I'm told. For $50k, Volvo should throw in all-season rubber mats.

2007 Volvo XC90 SUV 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Love this car! Only complaint: mileage. I only get about 14.3 mpg. Other than that, spacious, great design, user friendly, great for kids and cargo. Love it. Will never go back to a minivan or station wagon again (unless it's another Volvo!!).


Best Features

Fold down seats and six cupholders. Stereo with built in iPod connection is awesome!


Worst Features

Needs to beep when the alarm is set.

2007 Volvo XC90 SUV V8 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Since I purchased the wagon 45 days ago, I have put 3,000 miles on with no problems. The wagon runs smooth and quiet with power when needed. This is the first V8 I have purchased so I had to get used to the reduced gas mileage. There should be no expectations for great gas mileage with a 5,000 pound vehicle. Design, fit and finish are unmatched. This is my 3rd Volvo I have purchased. If the design and quality continue, I can see myself hooked for life.


Best Features

Smooth power, quiet ride, family oriented space, great entertainment system.


Worst Features

Given the state of today's techology, I would like to see a hybrid mated with the V8. The mileage I get on the freeway is good, 23-25 mpg. It is the city driving that drives down the mileage.

Review

Quality construction, great reliability, excellent acceleration, eye catching design, only the Cayenne can compare (exterior design). Improve stereo sound quality (lacks richness and depth). Interior functionality (design, seats, storage, cupholders, tailgate) is genius, spartan in an exquisite sort of way. No wasted electronic frills, paint quality is superior, braking exceeds expectations. Lives up to the Volvo name and tradition.


Best Features

Everything!


Worst Features

Fuel economy! Work on the stereo, not bad, could be better, given the overall quality of the vehicle.

2007 Volvo XC90 SUV 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We bought the XC90 3.2ltr FWD 7 passenger for its comfort and versatility when the grandkids visit. We thought the inline 6 cyl would get decent gas mileage, at least better than the Explorer we had. Wrong! In town we are only getting 12-13 mpg as opposed to advertised 18. Highway 22 mpg about what expected. The 6 cyl is significantly underpowered - having to downshift constantly. Also the car has the most unintuitive controls, i.e., washer/wipers, door locks, headlight controls I've ever seen! Must be Swedish logic! It is a comfortable ride however for a mid-sized SUV.


Best Features

Nice exterior design. Interior seating/cargo versatility. Pop-up grocery barrier in the cargo area. Heated seats.


Worst Features

I hope to live long enough to figure out how to control the windshield wipers and back door locks (even with the child safety switches turned off, a back seat passenger can't get out without pulling up the locking stem). Inadequate interior storage.
