2011 Volvo XC90 SUV 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We had a minivan for a decade, so it's time to change to something different. Looked for a 7 seats SUV and XC90 was our choice. I write this review after 6 months of driving. Its designe is old but still looks good. The engine is just adequate for 4700lbs vehicle, but not refined. The gas mileage is bad and its idling is rough. Volvo needs to improve its engine badly. The ride is ok for SUV but the seats are very comfy. I feel very secure with the XC90. It's not a fancy nor fast SUV but more like driving solid built vehicle.


Best Features

seats, two extra seats on the back, and secure feeling


Worst Features

engine, gas mileage.

Review

I purchased my 2011 XC90 in July 2010. I had a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor that was totaled and I wanted something even safer. (Endeavor held up well) I have been very pleased with the comfort, the added accessories and the overall drive of the XC90. When I initially read the reviews before purchasing it, I saw many complaints over the gas mileage. I have not found any difference between the gas mileage of my Endeavor and the XC90. I am happy with the gas mileage. The comfortable (heated) seats, the sophisticated look and other added features I didn't have in my Endeavor, make me very happy.


Best Features

Heated seats, comfortable seating, alarm (to make you aware someone or something is behind you) second row air conditioning, stopping ability, "wet" feature on wet or slick roads, auto-dimming rearview mirror.


Worst Features

I have the third row seat, but it really isn't usable, even for small children. Either do away with it or make it more usable. Make the dashlights better lit. Provide a cargo net and or a pull out cover to "hide" the cargo area and any contents

Review

I bought one of these solely based on its price when compared to the competitors. With the included 5 years of service, it cant be beat. This one came with every option, BLIS, Xenon, DVD's, Navigation, etc. The Navigation is something I would skip if I had to do this again. I have other cars with easier to use systems. I serves our needs at a "just-good-enough" rating. Its the only car I own that still has a "key". (no proximity token with push button start)


Best Features

BLIS Bluetooth Exterior styling is still decent, doesnt look like a dinosaur yet.


Worst Features

Needs a technology and interior design refresh desperately. Add a Homelink Moderize the navigation/back up camera system Add 1 touch memory seats
