My 2nd XC 90 - 2008 V8
By eastcoastjim on


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


We leased our 2nd XC 90 in August 2008, and couldn't be happier. Our first lease was a 2006 XC 90 with the 5 cyl. turbo, and it was a mediocre performer. Way underpowered, it worked so hard all the time it got horrible gas mileage and forget trying to get it to do a 50 to 70 pass on the highway. It had some warrenty work, but none of the horror stories I have read elsewhere. Based on the improved reliability cited by consumer's reports, we decided to lease a new V8. It is light years better - it feels like a completely different car, and the gas mileage is about the same between the two. There are only minor differences between the model yrs, and the incentives made them the same price!

Best Features

V-8 power. Comfort/ride. Seating for 7 that works for kids

Worst Features

MP3/ipod external jack: even your sister company Ford has them. More storage space for cell phone, etc. Include class III towing hitch if you want to call it an SUV
