Good buy, but not a flawless car
By gilles bourdier on


2005 Volvo XC90 V8 AWD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Car is a 2005.Roomy and comfortable. Has not let us down so far ( at 55000km). It looks good and not too big. Still manoeuvrable in town, despite a high turning radius. Parts and tires are durable. Fuel economy is very good on the open road and highway (12/13 l/100), much worse in town (18/20 l/100) HOWEVER, car is hefty and ponderous, taking away any driving pleasure. Steering wheel too low, even when adjusted, sunroof lets in way too much wind noise. Leather quality of seats poor. Engine feels suprisingly strained and whining under effort. Exhaust sound is a letdown. Sounds like a German V6, not a V8. Disturbing loud clunks and thumps over road bumps. Good, but not flawless

Best Features

Versatility and inside comfort. Adequate performence

Worst Features

Quieter sunroof, smoother ride, torquier and better sounding engine
