2007 Volvo XC90 V8 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
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.
Smooth power, quiet ride, family oriented space, great entertainment system.
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.
