"We were looking for a vehicle for the mountains of western North Carolina that could excel in the winter and handle the windy roads. Our 2006 XC-90 has been just what we needed. Once we got past 2 defective fuel pumps and one set of Pirelli tires in the first year (all replaced by the dealer at no cost), the vehicle has not had a single problem since. The T-5 engine, while not great as far as MPG goes, has all the power needed for any steep mountain road. Snow/ice has never been a problem. Great car for us!"
"WE HAVE HAD THIS VEHICLE SINCE IT HAD 561 MILES ON IT.
DEALER SERVICE VEHICLE.
IT CURRENTLY HAS 30,000 MILES ON IT.
VERY COMFORTABLE, GREAT FAMILY VEHICLE. IT COULD HAVE MORE POWER.
WE DON'T USE IT TO TOW ANYTHING, SO IT WORKS FINE.."
"I feel bad for whoever bought this truck a couple years ago and lost $20k on it but for my money a 2 year old, 7 passenger SUV that gets 20mpg and rides like a BMW 3 is a steal. I'm glad we opted for the 6 cylinder as it has plenty of power for getting you down the highway and around town. The transmission isn't always the smoothest in stop and go traffic but I still like everything else about it."
"This is my second Volvo SUV, there will be at least 3. I drove #1 65,000 miles and my 2008 has 20,000. The only service on either has been regular services specified by Volvo. I traded a 2001 ML320 on the first Volvo, the Volvo compares favorably in all respects outperforming in many."
"I purchased an '08 XC90 in November of 2007 and have had zero problems with it. This is the second Volvo that I have owned and both cars have been reliable, comfortable to drive, and overall great vehicles. My Volvo dealership has always given me quality service and I have no complaints. I will be a Volvo owner for life!"
"My Volvo XC90 has been a great vehicle and I have no complaints.
Service to date:
- Tires were replaced at 42k. The sales guy at the tire shop said I had about 5k left on them but it was november and I wanted new tires heading into ski season
- Did the first brake job at 45k. I didn't have to replace the rotors so the total cost was $250
I've had small things done that were covered by warantee
Mileage- I get 18mpg in city driving mixed with stop-and-go highway traffic. On long trips I average 23 mpg.
The fit and finish of the car is excellent and it is very comfortable to drive. The only minor complaint that I have is that the 05 Volvos dont allow for an integrated MP3 player or bluetooth."
"We have had this car for over 4 years with very little problems. It ended warranty just recently, but the repairs we had on warranty would be the type you could have had with any car. The dealership is what makes the difference. They treated the car like it was their own and when minor issues (like the CD player failed and needed replaced) would arise or there was a recall we were not aware of they just had it fixed. The gas mileage is around 18/28 (or even a little better now that we are trying to conserve on fuel).
Would recommend this to anyone interested in driving in winter climate and safety minded."
"This is an exceptional vehicle that has everything I want from a SUV and plus many extras. Gas consumption is reported to be 16/22, but I regularly get 18/25 or better (although, I am not an aggressive driver)."
