2003 Volvo XC90 SUV T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

Ride is superb. Pick-up very good.
Mileage 14.2 mainly around town. Fit
and finish are perfect. Features are
plentiful. First upscale vehicle we
have owned, what a difference. Fun to
drive.


Best Features

Great sounding stereo. Great handling and ride. Climate control system works great. Engine noise hardly noticeable. Pick-up is good. No squeaks, rattles, or imperfections that we can notice.


Worst Features

Gas mileage in the range of 16 mpg around town would be nice, although 14.2 mpg around town isn't awful.

2003 Volvo XC90 SUV T6 AWD 4dr SUV (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

Fun to drive - smooth ride, comfortable
seats.Navigation system is a pain -
remote control programming - the Toyota
has a navigation system with a keyboard
to key in the addresses - much easier
to use than the remote. Speeds of over
70mph on the highway cause a noisy wind
humming- very annoying.Gas mileage is
poor. Rear seats are for a VERY SMALL
children. Other than that, we love it!


Best Features

Surround sound and wooden steering wheel

Review

This vehicle has been in and out of the
shop for the past 5 weeks. For some
reason a lot of sensors keep going BAD.
The last one to go bad was the gas
pedal sensor while I was pulling out
into traffic! I have put one set of new
tires on at 10,000 miles-Volvo says this
is normal. New brakes at 16,000. Now
at 26,000 miles-600 extra miles
traveling back and forth to the
dealership for repairs and
then back home I need another set of new
tires! I have had it with this vehicle
and will never own another Volvo. Volvo
is willing to give me some kind of
assitence with getting a new Volvo, but
will not admit there is anything wrong
with this particular xc 90

Review

My XC90 was the first delivered by my
dealer and while people no longer stop
me to ask me questions I still catch
their admiring stares. Better than
that it the comfort and performance.
Drove through a snow storm on the PA
turnpike to Pittsburg and it was like
there wasn't any snow at all. It was
awesome and I had to keep reminding
myself to slow down even though I
didn't feel like it was necessary.
The seats are more comfortable than my
S500 and I love it. Good solid power
at all speeds and commanding braking
inspire.


Best Features

Seats, handling/AWD, acceleration and braking control.


Worst Features

DVD. Considering adding aftermarket.

Review

Overall we have been pleased. We got
what we paid for. From our demo we had a
problem with the rear seatblet - Dealer
is dealing with taht today - Our Dealer
has been fantastic thus far. Another
conern is sever black brake dust on all
4 tires after only 600 mile - Dealer
says this is not a concern - we'll see.


Best Features

Safety - overall cabin/interior.


Worst Features

Fuel economy Visibility Compass Why no option for keypay/keyless entry? Why isn't fuel gauge directly above LED computer screen?
