"I love the XC90. I always feel safe with my young children, and love the way it holds the road on curves. It is so solid, and has held up really well. When I trade it in, I WILL get another one just like it, only new with the DVD system."
"I have the standard package, bought it in 2005. I love the vehicle. It is comfortable for a 6' woman and passengers also compliment the looks and comfort. It is a safe SUV and handles great, especially in rain and snow compared to other vehicles I've had. Very nice storage making it easy to load/unload. Minor things are that a sunglass holder would be nice and the clock is in the dash making it hard for passengers to see.
I have not had any problems with tires or transmissions like other reviews have said. My tires lasted over 50,000 miles and nothing has been wrong with the transmission.
The only complaint I have is on service received when a part was installed wrong in the engine causing it to breakdown. Since then, the car hasn't been as reliable being that I've had to take in it for related problems. It is still a great SUV and I hope to purchase another someday."
"108,000 MILES ON XC90. THREE SETS OF REAR BEARINGS, MOTOR MOUNTS REPLACED. 4 SETS OF TIRES. THIS IS NOT A GOOD ENTRY INTO THE SUV MARKET BY VOLVO. SAFETY IS GREAT BUT WHAT GOOD IS IT WHEN THE VEHICLE IS IN THE SHOP.
WHEN THE MESSAGE LIGHT COMES ON IT SHOWS DOLLAR SIGNS INSTEAD OF WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. $-FOR INEXPENSIVE ($500), $$-FOR UP TO $1,000, AND $$$ FOR EVERYTHING ABOVE. MY $$$ IS BURNED OUT FOR BEING ON SO LONG."
