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


At 33k, the car overheated and stranded us. Picked it up from the dealer after two days, happened again. Twice on the hook in a week. That follows 3 days in the shop for a steering angle sensor, and another day for a headlight. The 4.4 is great, the ride is quiet, the interior is designed for adults. But we've driven 800,000 miles in Acuras and Infinities and never been left on the side of the road. It's happened twice in our low mileage XC90 in a week. Plus, no rearward vision and primitive electronics. We're going back to MDX

Best Features

interior looks great and wears like iron with the premium upholstery. Still great looking car, plus the V-8/six speed transmission combo; a real road warrior

Worst Features

rear view camera, bluetooth, decent nav system and better dealer service.
