So Far, So Good. — The performance is right on par with other luxury vehicles from this time. Firm, but not stiff, steering and suspension. Transmission is very smooth. Not an overabundance of power, but it is fun to drive. The build quality appears impeccable. Everything is quality - no squeaks and rattles. I get about 21 mpg average right now.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Styling, fit and finish, practicality, MPG, features

Cons: Sits a little lower than my preference, premium petrol

An Awesome Vehicle — So far dependable and safe. Perform normal service and will last for years to come. Use premium grade oil and filters. Don't use regular gas. Make sure tires are at normal air pressure. Enjoy the ride and be safe. peace.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable ride, it has an awesome seal from the outside noise.  Love the sunroof. Power train is great, step on the gas and it takes off like a jack rabbit.

Cons: Engine light on and off to frequently, I've learned to ignore it, and the message center frequently telling me about time for regular service.

I Loved This Car!! Still Do...hate To See It Go! Wish I Could Get Another One. — This SUV does so many things well: the engine is powerful and smooth, the steering is firm yet easy, comfortable and flexible seating configurations, love the intergrated child booster and that the center console is made to be easily removeable and the childs seat can be pulled up very close to the front seats!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's powerful, goodlooking, excellent handling, fuel economy is better than stated, and reliable!

Cons: The sunblind is lacking a pullout.

James Is Part Of The Family Team, Ensuring A Safe Return Every Time! —

I bought this car in Aug 2009 secondhand from a dealer, the prices were astronomical, but it hasn't cost me a penny until the service this year 2012. I'm not a spring chicken, but the insurance is always less than £300. The best bit is the car tax is £245 instead of £400!. There was a crack on the drivers side electric controls part of the seat and the rubber spring/grip had perished on the filler cap. I was disappointed that the Volvo dealership took the car for its MOT and failed it on the bushes, however, when I took it to a local Volvo specialist he passed it and said they were worn but didn't need replacing! The main dealership also collected the car and racket up 75 miles extra and brought it back with a dent in the bumper, which they denied doing! Not impressed with them. The car runs sweetly, have just had the filter replaced in the Air-con and its great (sinus problems seem to be alleviated!) When driving partly on the motorway and a lot round town I'm getting 31mpg. I was going to get it chipped to 185bhp but the insurance company was not too impressed. It gets left outside so it can be a bit sluggish in the mornings, but when its warmed up it goes very well. It can still see off a BMW saloon round a 360 degree slip road with a large downward gradient, so handling is brilliant! The integrated booster has really come in handy when transporting older shorter children. I need to get the cam-belt done soon and that is a bit hefty, but well worth it. Also the key spring has gone in both keys making them very awkward to store in pockets/bags etc, but the local specialist said he wants to try and fix it otherwise its a hefty £80-100 each.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fantastic work horse, with refined area for passengers/air con/ leather/ heated seats/ parking sensors, everything you could want. love the tiptronic for a bit of fun too!

Cons: Turning circle, this is the second one  I've had and it turns like a ship, 5 point turns realistically! Diesel fuel economy isnt as good ast 185bhp apparently.

Great Car For Moms But Still Stylish Enough For The Dads — Very heavy, solid vehicle. Decent on gas being that it is a "SUV". Beautiful styling. Navigation system is unreliable however, the "pop up" position is a plus. The cost of ownership / maintenance is relatively low for the quality of vehicle. It's a enjoyable car to drive for a mom who likes to transport her son and his friends everywhere!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safe and reliable

Cons: Crapy navi on this year's model

Volvo Xc90, Not Your Mother's Suv — This machine handles so well. Cornering, acceleration, braking and quiet. It handles roads in the winter better than most others out there, including the 4x4s. It makes me happy sliding behind her stearing wheel. As far as vehicles go it is my most fave. Even the sound system rocks... but it isn't needed to cover the noise of this machine, she is a quiet beauty. The interior is beautiful, comfortable and the heated seats are awesome!! Tilt, telescopic stearing wheel, sunroof and heated seats are all standard. The only thing that would top her is the muscles of the 60's and 70's, but that is a different drive all together.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, fast, affordable luxury and soo safe.

Cons: That I didn't meet her earlier in my life!!

Volvo Xc90 — I bought the D5 and it is something getting used to with in town driving. My previous car the s40 2.0T of course had lots of robot to robot power... Now i have to get use to the diesel taking a moment before it drives of... Brilliant on long road though...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Seven seater... Lots of space if Grand parents visit and we need to go to shops etc..

Cons: The diesel lag
