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.
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
BLIS, we love the color (oyester gray metallic)
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
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
Heated seats, visibility (much better the suburban), and the sliding second row
Owned for a few months now and no problems. As noted I would like to see better technology in this car like a modern nav and stereo. The safe and sound warranty is great. All service including oil,brakes rotors, wear and tear etc (except tires) are covered for 5yr/60k 91 octane is recommended but hard to find so I use 93. You can use 87 but I notice a lack of power with the 3.2 engine. Overall, I love this SUV. It is sharp looking and safe. No new design appears in the works until 2012.

Technology- Volvo is lacking in the XC90 with technology compared to it's competitors. Bluetooth looks like a doorbell on the dashboard. Should be integrated in steering wheel. Outdated dashboard.
