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


My new XC-90 V-8 is a terrific vehicle. The ride is smooth & comfortable. Power from the V-8 makes driving fun. Volvo has the most comfortable seats in the business. Gas mileage has been decent at an average of 17.5-18.5 mpg in mixed local driving. This is better than my previous Ford Explorer V-8 (16.5-17.5) & my friend's 6 cyl XC-90. The steering is a bit lighter than I would like, but handling is crisp. The new blind spot warning system is very helpful on the highway. All in all, a great vehicle.

Best Features

Seats, Geartronic transmission, V-8 power,reverse sensing, blind spot warning system.

Worst Features

Would like a little better steering feel. Base radio a little weak for a vehicle of this price.
