2010 Volvo XC90 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought my CX90 New and have owned it for over 2 years. My Volvo XC90 has an annoying issue. When I turn on the A/C, for the first 30 seconds, bad mold smell comes, and then I don't smell it. Reported to the dealer on 4 different occassions. They supposedly did everything ehey could, but the problem still persists. Recently, at 58000 miles, suddenly "Low Oil Level" sign came up. When I cheked the dipstick it was below minimum. Dealer supposedly checked it and found no oil leaks and says that they must not have put enough during the previous oil change, and that Volvo does eat some oil between service. I will have to monitor the oil level to see if there is a problem.

2010 Volvo XC90 V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I've had the car about 8 months. I replaced a minivan w/very squeaky brakes. I was disappointed that within a couple months the brakes were already squeaking in this car. I've had it in the shop a couple of times but they have not been able to fix it. The ride is a little stiff as has been mentioned. The V8 is great with a lot of power. I got the nav package and this system is pretty poor. The rt traf is helpful but this system can't find big time retail stores without typing in an exact address. I wouldn't rec buying this nav system. I too have experienced the buzzzz in the speakers which hasn't been fixed. Does anyone know what this is? Overall a good/fun/safe car to drive around


Best Features

BLIS system, great pickup with the V8 engine, good cargo space, good visibility and interior room compared with some similar suvs.


Worst Features

nav system, blue tooth, wish it had a backup camera - its a big car and sometimes very hard to see what's behind you. 3rd row very cramped

2010 Volvo XC90 3.2 R-Design 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought this vehicle through the military/diplomatic sales in Bahrain and overall it exceeded my expectations. Dissapointments: the vehicle was delivered to DC/VA almost four/five weeks behind scheduled arrival date with wrong interior color (calcite seats...ouch...), my speakers are making weird bzzzz sound. I installed bluetooth and portable 'Garmin for Volvo' navigation system and I am pleased with both. I especially like the portable navsystem, because you can use it with other vehicles;saves you $ when you rent on vacation. I really like how it handles the bumpy DC/VA roads and that there are no blind spots like in other SUVs. Also, the free service plan on 2010 models is a MAJOR perk!


Best Features

BLIS, calcite colored seats which have grown on me ;), portable navsystem, park assist, folding mirrors, heated seats/windows, large cargo space with folding seats, bike rack, kayak rack, split rear cargo door, side step bars, no blind spots, smooth acceleration, overall appearance.


Worst Features

Dash board is outdated, built in bluetooth, Sirius/XM radio, updated stereo system, portable/built in navigation should be standard option included in the price of the vehicle.

Review

We got it we loved it. we ordered it through the military program and got it fully loaded. 2 days after we got it it went to the shop, BLIS was not working properly. when we got it back the mirror was not on all the way and had to go back. our DVD player broke 3 months later and brought it in. we went to pick it up and they told us it had a recall and it couldnt be taken off the lot. I was mad bc we were going on vacation for the next two weeks and had to take our expedition. we went to pick it up and they LOST our headphones! AND it was dirty inside! i asked them if they would clean it and they said we had to pay for it! i will be trading this 6 MONTH OLD CAR


Best Features

BLIS, we love the color (oyester gray metallic)


Worst Features

little niggle things. make sure things work. we also have horrible wind noise on the right side of the car by the mirror. it is AWFUL like i cannot bear it any longer and i will be trading in this 6 month OLD CAR IN

Review

I got this car for my wife and we did the European delivery program which was amazing, I recommend it dearly, I've owned many volvos and this one is the best so far, the only problem I've had with it is the right middle pillar's plastic molding will rattle over jittery bumps and the materials in the interior are not up to date. but one thing if you get the 3.2 you probably will want AWD because it makes it drive much better and without it it's kinda slow


Best Features

Heated seats, visibility (much better the suburban), and the sliding second row


Worst Features

OVERHAUL! it's way to outdated in this market
