2008 Volvo XC90 3.2 Special Edition 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
We leased this SUV after 7 leases of Volvo cars before it. We had outgrown any car they make and this is a perfect fit. Lots of room, extra row of seats, (not much room there) and all the emenities needed. The ride is solid, plenty of room for me, (6'2'') amd a son of the same size. The premium sound is great, there is more than enough power to enter the highway safely and easily, braking is solid also. Car looks great, very reliable and lots of room in the back for luggage and whatever you pick up at Home Depot. The leather seats are as comfortable as at home, heat is great, have yet to do a summer with the black leather interior, but we are not concerned.
Premium sound system with 6 CD, love the moon roof and the luxurious feel of the SUV. Feels very untrucklike. Volvo is very agressive in their pricing currently, you can get a great deal if you are patient and know how to negotiate. We got ours for 15k under sticker price, 10k under invoice.
Very large blind spot to right rear due to large posts that make the car so solid. Gas milegae is poor.
