Love My XC90 by Tostik from the Colorado foothills on 01/12/2012. Trim: 2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T, Owned 4 years.
Pros: If you like comfort, this is the car for you--best car seats ever. If you you like utility, this is the car for you--best in class cargo space, and 7 seats if needed. Safety second to none. Fantastic ride, always under control even at high speeds, very maneuverable for a heavy SUV, and very peppy off the line.
Cons: Poor visibility when backing.
Overall review: Moderately good gas mileage for a heavy SUV--but use premium gas as Volvo recommends. You'll get your money's worth because you'll get better gas mileage + better performance from your engine. The sense of luxury is very high in this car--I look forward to driving it every day. Good reliability--only one major problem in 3 years of ownership--right front bearing went out--$450. Need to do high quality brakes and tires because it does tend to 'eat' these 2 items a little faster than normal. Great in snow--AWD does a good job.

Great Safe, Truley Sporty yet family car! by From Central Valley, CA on 12/05/2008. Trim: 2006 Volvo XC90 V8, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Very Stylish, very comfy, very elegant, the Leather interior is unbeatable. best purchase i have ever made.
Cons: About 18 mpg average, (that's only a 1 mpg less than the V6 model, but you get extra 75 hp and an incredible kick that you you won't feel in any other same size SUV. Guaranteed!! Stereo with awesome speakers, but no aux for the ipod, (so what? :)
Overall review: Nice ride, tight, you will need few days to get used to it's 6 speed transmission though,

Great used car value by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/27/2010. Trim: 2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great styling, fairly comfortable for front seat passangers on long drives. Engine is VERY responsibe, very quiet and smooth
Cons: Back seat is not the most comfortable on long drives according to the teenagers, but they still fell asleep. Third row seats are really not a viable option for someone older than 5 or 6 for long distance but adequate on trips around town when you need them.
Overall review: Overall we are very pleased with our XC90, I got it for the wife but I love to drive it too. The turbo makes it a fun car to drive, it actually drives alot like a sports sedan.

Overall good vehicle by New Philly boy on 02/03/2009. Trim: 2006 Volvo XC90 2.5T, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Per the previous review: you can take the vehicle to the dealer to have them program the locks to lock automatically when the vehicle goes into motion. Overall a great vehicle. Have the 3rd row seats which are convenient for kid hauling, not adults. AWD is works well in snow and rain. Great sound in the premium sound system.
Cons: Not enough engine/torque/hp. Not well integrated gadgets as with other luxury SUVs.
Overall review: No mechanical problems at all. I also had problems with Pirelli tires, but only went through one pair at about 17k miles.
