The wife and I have been driving the XC90 V8 for a little over a year now. The drive is exceptional and the power is second to none. This vehicle drives like a fine tuned sports car and grips the road like velcro. The vehicle is a real head turner going down the road and at traffic lights. Dynaudio is the best. Navigation is OK, but could be a little better with response times. I have missed a turn or two when driving. I am a bit surprised that some of the interior plastic decor parts (pieces that cover some of the metal have fallen off and the middle console is loosey goosey when you go to store something away. We are leasing and will be turning the vehicle in at the end of 2009
We love the body style, the leather seats and the Dynaudio.
Deliver a hybrid and extend the length. Volvo should make the XC90 a full sized SUV. Understanding this is a V8, but the gas mileage could/should be improved. Volvo should lead with innovation, however I believe they are pretty set in their ways & will not deliver the larger SUV for larger families
