2012 Volvo XC90 SUV 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My wife and I are very pleased with our 2012 XC90. Our last SUV was an MBZ ML 320 which is a very good vehicle. The price of the new ones, though, gave us pause. In buying an SUV we considered seating capacity as a primary quality. We have 5 grandchildren locally. The performance comments concerned me. However, with the 7 speed automatic that manually shifts, there is more than ample performance, if one knows how to use a transmission. The value, space, engineering and performance are all here.


Best Features

Interior design, transmission/engine performance, finish and space. Runs on regular unleaded. Some models qualify for the preferential tax incentives.


Worst Features

Ride is a bit stiffer than our MBZ.

Review

I'm bulletpointing those things that I find uninspiring: * putting key into ignition takes much accuracy * confusion with central controls for entertainment/ventilation - not intuitive * navigation - very confusing * the pop-up screen for rear assist and navigation being separate instead of built in. it powers upward when in reverse then returns in drive. Imagine going in reverse for 3 seconds and this screen going up hten down while you're driving forward. It sounds like the first component that will malfunction * must slam doors to shut * door lock/unlock system: it takes multiple presses to get the doors to unlock (except driver's) * no power for rear hatch * jerky acceleration


Best Features

Here's my list: * rear assist technology * phone hook-up * rear hatch has lower section that open to slide out items instead of lifting * entertainment system * comfort * heated seats * sunroof


Worst Features

opposite of above
