“Great Car for Family”

Written on: 01/03/2013 by peteremming (1 review written)

First of all I owned this car. The beauty about this car is space, smooth drive and excellent performance. I didnt need to get it service as offen as my pervious car. In Germany we drive in great distance from 50 Km to 400Km average. I have no regret buying this car… Read Full Review

“An XC90 for all occassions”

Written on: 06/09/2012 by KMPRM (1 review written)

I brought a 3 year old 40000 mile Volvo XC90 in 2009. Having owned the vehicle for 3 years and travelled 1000's of miles across Europe I've recently had to spend my 1st pennies on maintenance (apart from annual servicing at approx £200 from local garage) The car has been 100% reliable. You can pack your family, cases, camping equipment;into the back and still have room for the dog, it really is a big car. Off road its pretty good too. I go fishing in some pretty remote areas of Europe where… Read Full Review

“When it`s a V8 it`s a different animal”

Written on: 23/06/2011 by Valcosmos (1 review written)

Out of all XC90`s V8 is the one to go. It is powerful, roomy, stylish, comfortable, maneuverable. Did I say stylish? It is definitely not as sporty in handling as Infiniti FX35 or BMW X5 4.4l, but in return you get a more comfortable ride than X5, more room than in both of those, I mean really more room and the styling is on par if not better. Their AWD Haldex with instant traction system is definitely better than BMW`s, and the safety features are the best in class. Overall I`m very… Read Full Review

“My Volvo XC90 experience, take note. Fuel consumption...”

Written on: 09/04/2011

My Volvo XC90 experience, take note. Fuel consumption locally 21mpg not very impressive for a 2.4 auto diesel. As for the third row of seats - the space is laughable, OK for a small five year old, but for an adult when being used as a 7 seater absolutely useless. Another reviewer mentioned 7 foot adults, I would like to see it. My car had heavy, not very responsive steering. Volvo garage not very helpful with any problems. Having driven many many cars I think this on reflection was one of the… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2011

"Swiss Army knife" made in Sweden. Second one and we love the V8 that burns less then the older inline 5 version. Well made, fun to drive and very quite. Also an Audi A6 owner and love them both equally. What I don't like is probably the price and the resale value. Oddly reviews from so called professionals don't accuratly reflect the quality of the vehicle and I think this wrongly puts people off hurting resale somewhat. However great for someone buying second hand… Read Full Review

The Volvo Xc90 is one of the best suvs available in the market today. This
scandinavian designed vehicle is famous for it's safety, durability and build quality.I have owned this xc90,3.2 AWD for 16 months now with no problems what so ever.The exterior & the interior design puts far ahead of the competitors. The premium sound system, 12 Dynaudio speakers (optional) is one of the best car audio systems installed in any car any model any year.The ride is firm and comfortable,the 3.2 six cylinder… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/01/2009

I would not get this car again. Glad I leased and did not buy. Overall car is nothing special. Not in the Lux category at all. When things break in the car it's a full day job to get it fixed. The drive is not smooth, and it has a cramped uncomfortable interior. I'm coming from an Acura MDX and will probably go back to that or go to the pilot. They make a much better car… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2008 by arianne (13 reviews written)

We bought our Volvo XC90 from new in March 2006. It's a 2.4 D5 turbo diesel coupled to a manual, 6-speed gearbox. We've covered 52,000 (as at June 2008) which is a mix of fast, rural A-roads in the Scottish Borders, commuting to Edinburgh city centre and pan-European trips to Austria twice yearly (ski and summer hols). Our previous car was a Ford Galaxy 1.9TDi Ghia.
PRACTICALITY
Throw almost any challenge at the XC90 and it'll complete the task. As a mini-bus the seven seats are super. We… Read Full Review

<br/>It says too little and depends upon minor niceties and not real world motoring experiences.

“We've only just taken delivery of this Volvo XC90...”

Written on: 18/04/2006 by arianne (13 reviews written)

We've only just taken delivery of this Volvo XC90 three weeks ago so please bear this in mind when reading this review.

This is a wonderful, smooth and sophisticated car. Design features abound with room for seven passengers. The rear most two seats are proper leather clad seats and comfortable. They fold into the floor and are suitable for 6ft folk for around 45min journeys. Kids and smaller adults will be fine for much longer. Middle three seats fold flat and all are easy to operate… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2006 by m1964 (1 review written)

This is our second SUV -we traded 2003 Honda Pilot (which was only 2.5 year old) for Volvo V8 XC 90. We put almost 9,000 miles on this car and I still enjoy every second I drive it. It is probably the best combination of drivability, comfort and safety you can get today. V8 engine is very smooth and powerfull. Very good premium radio, goosd seats -drove over 400 miles in bad weather -no back ache, nothing like that after driving for almost 8 hours… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2006 by dnzparis (1 review written)

Primarily used as a pretty people transporter and continental motorway muncher the Volvo XC90 has performed surprisingly well off road and as a work horse.

Volvo have always provided safety features and mod cons, such as heated seats, always on head lamps and that tank like invincible build quality that have endeared it as a marque to me since I first owned a Volvo 940 Estate (Station Wagon) back in 1992 but its credibility as an SUV puts the XC90 into unknown territory.

This car is like… Read Full Review
