Great car, performance could be better

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


The Volvo XC90 is an excellent package
for a person who wants the performance
and feel of a European sport sedan,
but the versatility of a large SUV.
This car feels light and nimble, but
has variable performance. Sometimes
there is a lag between 1st and 2nd
gears. Braking is excellent. Ride
and handling are very good. Engine is
quiet. Gas mileage and range is
poor. The car is well-engineered for
versatility. Second row seating
adjusts individually for all 3 seats.
Center seat slides all the way
forward. Third row is two independent
seats which fold into the third row.
Comfort and quality of materials is
excellent. Dash layout is great.

Best Features

NAV system Adjustable second row seating Ride / Comfort Handling (18" wheels) Performance (some days it feels good) Build Quality - Fit / Finish Tailgate! Styling Safety

Worst Features

Performance-some days it's not so good Turbo whine 1st to 2nd gear AutoTrans performance
