2009 Volvo XC90 3.2 R-Design 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The best SUV in terms of size, look and gas milage I have yet owned...Very classy and great to drive


Best Features

The fact that I do not waste money on premium gas...it takes regular and does not effect veh performace or computer components ect...


Worst Features

More compartment space in front...BUT...I'll take it becuase it is my only complaint of this great all around SUV that is very reliable and does not touch the pocket book like other luxury SUV's in this class...

2009 Volvo XC90 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

The XC90 looks beautiful. However, it's not the most comfortable car to drive in. There's not too much room in the front for the driver and passenger. At 14,000 I already needed a wheel alignment which is not covered. Also I had problems which needed service on the drivers side chair as well as indicator lights going off on the dash board for no apparent reason. After one year, I'm looking to trade the vehicle in for a SUV that gets better gas mileage. This SUV consumes gas like I consume beer.


Best Features

The vehicle has good visibility. Very high off the ground.


Worst Features

More room for the driver. A place to put my sun glasses.

2009 Volvo XC90 3.2 R-Design 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We were looking to go upscale for our next SUV. What first caught my eye was the xc60, which is rated very highly. But when we thought about it, we decided to go one larger and get the xc90, which included the third row. True, it's not really made for hauling 7 adults all the time, but it gives us the flexibility to throw a few extra kids on board for outings. Other than that, we find our R-design 3.2 to be classy, fun to drive, we get a lot of compliments, etc. You get luxury and a certain degree of performance as a bonus to safety and versatility. If you want a sports car, buy a sports car. If you want a sophisticated SUV, go Volvo!


Best Features

Third row is good for kids. Gives SUV versatility, but handles like a mid-size sedan. Classy and SAFE!


Worst Features

The interior clock is on the speedometer, so passengers can't easily see it (maybe it should be on the mirror instead of a compass?). We'd rather have an armrest in the second row than the booster seat. Oh well - c'est la vie.

2009 Volvo XC90 New 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Nice vehicle- not great- 3rd row not really meant for adults- not a ton of luggage space either. A bit sluggish when accelerating. It has a heavy feel to it when you drive it. Could also use some more power steering help. Difficult to turn the wheel at times. My wife loves the fact that it drives like a tank. She feels very safe in it.


Best Features

Blind spot indicator and built in DVD player.


Worst Features

Need an integrated blue tooth system. Competitors are much more advanced. Better gas mileage would be nice as well

2009 Volvo XC90 New 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I have been looking at this car since it came out and finally took the plunge and purchased new 09 model. Love everything about it. Handles really wheel and very fun to drive. Bought this truck over alot of others for the trunk space for my ridgeback dog/family member and he has plenty of room and his own AC vents. Only downside i have seen is that the rear vents don't work unless the a/c is on.


Best Features

Blind spot alert!!!! Love that extra perk!


Worst Features

Easier navigation, better fuel, and more space in the middle row! have two car seats and its pushing the limit but didn't want to compromise on safety so willing to make it work.
