Don't buy 6 cyl FWD
By RonP on

Vehicle

2007 Volvo XC90 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.
