Owned for a few months now and no problems. As noted I would like to see better technology in this car like a modern nav and stereo. The safe and sound warranty is great. All service including oil,brakes rotors, wear and tear etc (except tires) are covered for 5yr/60k 91 octane is recommended but hard to find so I use 93. You can use 87 but I notice a lack of power with the 3.2 engine. Overall, I love this SUV. It is sharp looking and safe. No new design appears in the works until 2012.

This is my second Volvo XC90 (just traded in my '08 after driving it for two years). I'm surprised that there are not more reviews on this car because we really love ours. Our '08 was t-boned by a driver who ran a red light. I had my two children (5 & 9) in the back seat & none of us suffered any injuries. The other driver totaled his car & suffered from whiplash & minor back injuries. This car is a tank! That's why it does not get very good gas mileage, but I don't mind trading A+ safety for a few more dollars at the gas pump. The XC90 really is a great family car... lots of room, very comfortable, fun to drive, sporty & SAFE!

10 year old report

I bought an 2010 XC90 used, had 100k miles on it. Only defect was the wear and tear on the front leather seats, they are completely worn out with cracking and fading, but still in one piece. Some observations of the car at this age: 1. Gas mileage is actually decent for an old, heavy SUV. I am getting 19/20 with the standard V6. 2. Oil Level Sensor is very sensitive. 7.8 quarts is recommended, I usually put a full 8 quarts in. It burns oil very slowly, so the light will come on mid-oil change, even though it's still in the dipstick range. I usually go ahead and top it off with another half a quart. 3. There's a weird auto fan feature with the AC, previous owner warned me of it. If you leave the AC on when you shut off the car, it tries to circulate air while you're away. The problem is if the car sits for a several days this way, you'll kill the battery. You have to remember to shut off the AC when the car is parked for awhile. And, since the battery is in the back of the car, you'll have to crawl in from the front to change it if there's not enough power to unlock the tailgate. 5. A few items like seatbelt latches and keyless entry have not stood well with the test of time. Best to double check those locks before you walk off trusting that all 4 doors are actually locked. 6. Mechanically, the car is great for 10 years old. No leaks anywhere, clean engine, runs well. I would recommend buying one used if you find one with low miles.

We just bought our AWD XC90 and are very happy so far. Reviews of the add ons (like NAV and entertainment packages) helped us decide not to purchase these features. The safety features are unparalleled, especially at this price. If feels like you are driving a real vehicle instead of a plastic toy. Ride is smooth and much quieter than the Durango SLT Plus we traded in. 5 yr wear and tear, 5 yr maintenance, and 5 yr warranty were great bonuses. Costco buyer's program, and the 2009 tax incentives sealed the deal for us.

2009 V8 R-Design XC90

Excellent performer. Excellent road handling. It is what the manufacturer promises you. This beast, under that deceiving dreamy looking eyes(headlights), really swallow gas when you press for performance. I am not complaining, just a statement because fuel is cheap here, so the petrol consumption doesn't bother me.
