2009 Volvo XC90Lisa Pharm.D. - Las Vegas, NV12/20/2012
I purchased my first Volvo about 4 years ago and I love love love it. I have the XC90 and the ONLY thing I'd change about it is the color. Mine is silver and I like black. Seriously I first started looking for an SUV because my rottie puppies were getting way to big for my Mustang, plus they didn't travel well and got sick in my car. I decided I needed an SUV. I needed one big enough to hold 3 big dogs. The Range Rover has that slanted roof in the back and that wouldn't work, as it made head room less for the dogs. The Tahoe and Expedition and many of the other SUVs all kind of looked alike and no one wants to look like everyone else. Volvo has a great safety record and would fit my family (husband and 3 kids; plus my dogs). The Volvo also has a look of it's own.
My one negative experience was when my son bottomed out the Volvo and bent the exhaust pipes. They had to be ordered from Sweden. Apparently there are many parts on this vehicle that aren't carried in stock, because they rarely have to replace them. Thus, when they need to be replaced, they have to order it. It took a few weeks to get here. Other than that, I'm passing on my older Volvo to my son and plan to get a new one.
One more thing, the gas mileage is great as long as you keep up the regular maintenance.
AND I know my family is safe. My son got rear ended by a drunk driver. The drunk's car got jacked up - bent up hood and everything. My Volvo had a tiny scratch on the bumper.

I really enjoy driving my Volvo SUV XC90 4WD. It is very confortable. I do not have to worry about turning off the headlights. Once it's off, everything is off. My grandkids really love the far back seats. They always want to sit there whenever we go places. The CD that stores up to 6 CD's great. I love that it does not feel light when driving. I feel very safe. My 20 year old daughter also enjoys my new car. I will probably get a newer model two or three years from now. I truly love my Volvo!
