"Volvo for Life" Great Motto
By Lucy Boudet on


2008 Volvo XC90 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


This is my 2nd XC90. Came out of a great experience in a 2005 XC90 and couldn't find anything I really wanted better. Tested a Mazda CX9, Mercedes M Class, Subaru Tribeca, Highlander, Lexus RX 350...and on and on. It may not have the fun "zoom-zoom quality of the Mazda, but the Mazda outside mirrors vibrate like crazy...rear seats vibrated...tracks in the floor looked so cheap. Mercedes was nice but didn't like the paddle shifter and it's too small cargo area. Volvo makes the most beautiful, classy looking SUV. Nothing beats the feeling of quality in my XC 90. This new engine drives great. I thought I'd miss the Turbo. Not at all. Great lease deals make it the perfect family vehicle.

Best Features

Wood steering wheel, exterior styling, beautiful leather comfy seats, outside mirrors that fold in with a push of a button, solid as a tank safety. steering feels great. Third row seats without a minivan feel to the interior

Worst Features

Bluetooth standard. Better radio. Needs a nice refresh of its styling in and out as beautiful as it is.
