I took this vehicle hunting across very tough and rocky terrain. It performed very. Back on the Highway it was great after all that. Also it performs well during a recent ice storm. Several other vehicles were in the ditch and other places but bot even a slip.

Review

This was a great investment for my growing family. The third row seats are small, but will be used by my kids only. The leather interior, wood grain steering wheel, rear DVD system are all a major plus for me. The most impressive feature is the 315 hp engine with smooth acceleration. This does not even compare to my wife's S70. Volvo has really stepped up with the rest of its competitors in the SUV market.


Best Features

Powerful engine, fast acceleration, and 300 watt Dolby Surround sound stereo system.


Worst Features

Must improve on blind spots on the side view mirrors and decrease wind noise.

Review

This is my 6th Volvo in 35 years. I do look at other cars but I always end up purchasing another Volvo. This one is the best ever. It is every bit as comfortable as my last car, a 2001 S80. The turning radius is better than the S80 which makes it easy to park even in tight spaces. I did not get the third row of seats and I'm so glad. The "trunk" space is large and so well designed. I use the pop-up area for transporting anything that could tip over. It is my favorite feature. I also love the solid feel of this heavy car. The safety features are outstanding and that's really why I ultimately decided on this car but it has it all. I also think it is the best looking SUV on the road!

Review

I am totally pleased with my 2005 XC90. The ride is a dream and the handling is great. I feel safer in this vehicle than any other car. My other car is a 2004 Corvette which is totally fun to drive. The Volvo is fun too. I wish I did not have the 3rd row seats but that is the way it came. It was the only red XC90 that I could find in So. Calif. so I took it with the extra seats that will never be used. My choice. They are only made for little children. Adults would never fit. Next one, and there will be a next one will not have the 3rd row seats. Summary: I LOVE my XC90!


Best Features

Plush!


Worst Features

Heated seat selection for just the back. Wow! What a treat that would be on the way home from a hard day!
