I have always wanted a Volvo but thought it was out of my reach. I love the Volvo XC90. It has incredible pick up and lots of extra features. I especially like the dual temperature gauge. The only thing I would change is more storage space in the drivers area. I moved from a minivan to the Volvo so I was used to a lot of compartments and pockets to store things. In the XC90 it is limited.
We've owned a variety of SUVs and crossovers through the years (RAV4, 4Runner, Jeep Liberty & Wrangler). So recently we decided to downsize our garage and get one vehicle to replace the RAV4 and Cadillac STS. We wanted practicality (AWD a must), safety, luxury, performance and reliability. The XC90 3.2 AWD fulfills all those requirements. The fit and finish is on a par with both high end Japanese and Cadillac. Comfort is superb -- the heated leather seats are a better fit and more adjustable than the STS. Safety and reliability are a Volvo tradition. Check with your mechanic about parts and service. Here is small town Western North Carolina it can be challenging. Premium gas is required, but it was on the Cadillac, too. We've received a number of compliments on the vehicle's appearance. Good value for a multitasking vehicle!
Love my xc90

I love my car. with 121,000 miles on it, it still runs fantastic. Quiet, good on gas, very comfortable, roomy, awesome "truck" space, AC works wonderfully. Only negative, because I am short, I cannot reach the roof to wash it
