"Bought my 2007 XC90 AWD under the diplomat/military sales program in Korea. Could not be happier. Very safe, very reliable car that seems to be holding its value fairly well. No mechanical issues so far (have 11,000 miles). If I have one complaint it would be the gas mileage. I live in a fairly rural area, but travel 25 miles one way to work via the interstate: only getting 19mpg, so that's making the wallet a little thin. I intend to keep this thing until it dies a long, slow death from old age."
"We purchased a new XC90 just over 4 years ago. After the 36K warranty was gone numerous little annoying problems began to happen. The most recent problem we encountered was that our transmission is going and needs replacing. We don't even have 50K miles on this car. I have followed the maintenance schedule above and beyond what Volvo suggested. When I called Volvo's customer service center the rep appologized and made a comment to the extent that the '03 and '04 were the first year that Volvo made the XC90. Now all the deffects have been worked out in models after '06. Needless to say, we are shopping for a new car and it definelty will NOT be a Volvo!!!"
