My first SUV
By kentmilani on


2003 Volvo XC90 2.5T AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


We were looking for a safe 7 seat
vehicle, comfortable seats, reliable
and economical to run. The MDX is only
the only other SUV to come close to
this descripition.

The fuel economy (or lack thereof) has
surprised me in the first 800 miles.
My Toyota Tundra V8 does better in city
and on highway. I have BABIED the
XC90's throttle and I get 14 mpg (US
gallons)in the city and 20 mpg on
highway. Tell me it's just during the
break-in period?!

Dealer tried a few "tricks" when I went
to pick it up, but they backed down
when I objected.

Otherwise, our whole family is very
happy, comfortable and safe.

Best Features

all the safety features, seats

Worst Features

check the fuel economy problem.... maybe hire some Japanese engineers for this.
