2004 Volvo XC90 SUV 2.5T AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

The steering is too tight in this SUV.
My arms ache everytime I drive this
car. My dad drove my XC90 one day, he
asked if it had power steering!!! Hard
to park this car, makes a very big
turn - hard to make a tight swing.


Best Features

This is a quiet, smooth ride. Great sound system. I love all the safety features.


Worst Features

Armrest needs to be closer to front & higher.

2004 Volvo XC90 SUV 2.5T AWD 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

When i first purchased my Volvo XC90, i
was well impressed. It feels so much
like a car when i drive it. All of the
amentities in the interior are superb. I
love the way Volvo designed the truck
period!


Best Features

The 8 speaker Dolby Digital Surround Sound 2 stereo system. The theatre style seating. The Xenon head lights for maximum visibility. The twin turbo 5 cylinder engine. The ergonomic leather surfaces.


Worst Features

On initial take off, the car seemed to lag a bit. Third row seat arrangment too cramped for a person that is 6"3. Could have a little bit more room.

Review

I currently own a 2003 BMW 530i, which
I LOVE to drive and I needed a people
mover that's stylish, safe (3 kids)
comfortable and good on gas. Saw the
XC90 last yr when it came out and was
impressed with its styling. Fell in
love with it on my test drive. I drove
a friends X5 and was not happy with
the ride, ruled out the Touareg and
the Cayenne because of the lack of the
third row, the MDX because it's just
an expensive Pilot and I'm not a fan
of American SUVs (too big, trucky and
bad on gas).Anyone looking at luxury
level SUVs to definitely check this
one out before making their final
decision. Volvo did good with this
one!!


Best Features

Split rear doors and the built in child booster seat along with the exterior styling.


Worst Features

More power (have to get used to the turbo lag when accelerating), more intuitive steering wheel control placement, power rear gate. (You expect a bit more luxury features for the money)

Review

My first Volvo, but I am very happy
with the XC90. Rides great, stable in
any weather, very comfortable, looks
great. Unpretentious.


Best Features

Everything about it.


Worst Features

Wish fuel economy was better, but still comparable to competitors. Video for reverse, air pressure monitor, additional radar/crash detection for front/sides.
