2005 Volvo XC90 2.5T Fwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I consider this vehicle to be the best I've owned. It's classy, comfortable, reliable and economical. On a recent trip, I got 24 MPG on the highway. Typical MPG around town is 19-20. How many other non-hybrid SUVs can do that? I have the 2.5T and though I was concerned a 5 cylinder SUV might be underpowered, I can report positively that it is not. My 18 year old son drives a Jeep Cherokee and he says the acceleration in my vehicle "scares him."

Best Features

Creature comforts, well thought out.

Worst Features

Make the scan feature on the radio easier to use. Should be one button like all other vehicles. DO NOT get the Pirelli tires!!!! They're soft and are not good on this vehicle. The dealership replaced mine at their cost because of the rapid degradation.
