2007 Volvo XC90 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


My wife has extreme Volvo loyalty and she bought this XC90 3.2 FWD straight base model in spite of my reluctance. I pondered a Kia Sedona, but couldn't bring myself to close the deal on that because I was doubtful the mpg would meet my minimum requirement. With my inaction going on indefinitely she bought this XC90, and I took her 2004 V70 base model with which I get 30 to 35 mpg on the highway at 70 to 80 mph under best driving conditions. The XC90 fuel use has been acceptable on the highway (22 mpg to over 26 mpg), but lower than I would like at 15 mpg in short trip usage in town. Total fuel economy over the first 12,000 miles has been 19 mpg.

Best Features

Rear windows retract completely into the door so the dogs can have heads out and not get hit by glass edge going over bumps. The 235/65-17 tires are a good choice for fuel economy and tire replacement costs.

Worst Features

US availability of the 185 hp 2.4L diesel with 6M transmission.
