2008 Volvo XC90 3.2 Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
Bought this XC90 after 4 years in a Caddy SRX. Looked at and drove an MDX, ML350, Highlander, Enclave and a BMW X- 5. All nice, well built autos, but when you sit in the XC90, shut the door and drive you feel safe and comfortable. Controls are well layed out and everything is easy to use. No useless extras in the dash to "play" with. It has a solid feel on the road, either 4 lane interstate or two lane back roads. Recently took an 800 mile round trip and averaged 22 mpg. Not bad for going 75 to 80 mph.
Dash layout, seats, exterior style and AWD.
Automatic door locks would be nice, got used to them on my other cars.
