2008 Volvo XC90 V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


My fourth Volvo, but SUV. A 2008 V8 Special Edition with practically all options. Paid $56,000 and have no regrets. The ride is smooth, steering responsive and road grip and stability far better than my wife's Acura MDX. Second row a bit cramped, but as it is meant for kids and they are more interested in the entertainment system, it's not a big issue. Air condition for the rear seats is on all the time, as it enhances the over-all airflow. The air quality system and BLIS makes highway traffic very comfortable. I drive the car pretty hard and has a mileage below 12, but the V8 sound is so great that it's hard not to use the power.

Best Features

BLIS, xenon headlights, stereo, easy chair folding, and the front seats.

Worst Features

As the 2nd row seats can move forward, it should be possible to make them move back to give more legroom. Would like to see the suspension option found on S80 to change between sport, comfort and normal.
