We picked up our XC90 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Volvo flew us over and back, picked us up at the airport, put us into a nice hotel, and provided a three course meal the day we arrived. After taking us to the factory , we met our new car. Our advisor went over the car with us. After a short test drive we had a Swedish meatball lunch followed by a factory tour. Even though this was a great experience, the fun started when we drove away from the factory. Over two weeks we put 2500 miles on the XC90. This car is the most comfortable I have ever had beginning with the seats to the individualized climate controls. We encountered just about every driving condition-city, highway, rain, snow, ice, hills, steep switchbacks, mud, and winding single and two lane roads. It handled everything effortlessly and confidently. There is generous passing power. The controls are intuitive and we found the Sensus touch screen very easy to use. We couldn't have made it through unfamiliar European cities without the excellent navigation system. The human-technology interface is seamless. We have had Chevrolet, Ford, and Cadillac SUVs and already the XC90 is my favorite. Since we just got it I have no idea about reliability or repair but it performed flawlessly. The worst thing is I have to wait for it to come home!
