Good For New Familys — the XC90 is the perfect suv 4 europr because the car is small so its able 2 fit in the parking lots there. And it would fit a new family.

Drove For A Year, Loved It! — I drove this car from January 2006-January of 2007. This was an extra car that my parents owned, and I enjoyed driving it for the time I did. Amazing handling, incredible gas mileage. Bought new Ford Fusion in 2007, but sometimes drive this car still.

Nice Attempt, But ... — I tested this car before buying the 330i. You really gotta go for the T6 or, better: the 8-cyl engine, coz the rest sucks, especially the D5 diesel.

Great Safe Good Sounding Car — Everything is great about it except for the fact to get it fixed is very expensive. The sound system blows me away every time I turn it up. But so does the amount of gas this car uses. I recommend this car for families of 4 or 5 no more. Car doesn't have very good leg room.

Love It — Great car to take on long trips very comfortable and a very smooth ride. Feels like u r in a tank, very well built. Cabin is a little small but nothing to really be concerned about. Overall best car we have ever owned.

Very Safe And Reliable Car — Interior is more luxurious than I gave it credit for. Very spacious interior. Front and back seats slide to adjust for legroom. Big cargo space can hold bike and or tons of baby/child for longer trips. Small/medium sized adult can sit between two car seats in the backseat.

Pros

Comfort, safety, flexibility

Not a gas sipper

The Relatively Lame Gas Mileage (19/24) Is Offset By The Overwhelming Positives — While acceleration in this 5-cylinder turbo will not snap your neck, it holds it own wrt performance, quality, appearance, cargo capacity, passenger comfort, low cost of ownership and 5 stability control systems for safety. And, yes - its fun to drive.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

For People That Want A 4x4 With Space & A Big Bank Account — Fabulous car. Great engine in it, fantastic BHP in it. Build is great, lots of space. Smooth driving as if on fresh tarmacadam. Cost of ownership is expensive as the road tax is 2100e a yr. Engine efficient on Diesel, car comes in 7seater. Very comfortable, doesn't feel as if your driving a tank. Fantastic hardy car (4x4)

If You Have A Large Family And Like Driving Nice Cars...this Fits. — Great acceleration with OK braking. No repairs thus far. Great styling. Mileage not great, but it is a V8 SUV. Would buy again, just let someone else drive off the depreciation. If you wait 2-3 years you get almost half off.
