Perfectly optomized for Tropical Weather by DiploWife on 12/13/2010. Trim: 2010 Volvo XC90 3.2 R-Design, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: It is extremely comfortable, the R design seats are gorgeous and luxurious. Very Spacious, the seats fold down completely flat, they don't need to be removed like in our previous SUV. Can't say enough great things about the handling, (except the turn radius, see below) does exactly what I want it to do, and the ride is very smooth.
Cons: The turn radius is HORRIBLE. What should be a u-turn is a 4 point turn and it only gets worse from there. (Despite the terrible turn radius, I don't find it difficult to park) Interior could use a little updating. The entire dash/console looks a little 1995 to me. Backup sensor would be much more helpful if it weren't so overly sensitive. I usually just turn it off.
Overall review: We love it, and are very happy with our purchase. We have had the car for 8 months, we traded in a 2008 Yukon for it and although we loved the Yukon, we knew we would be moving to Honduras (husband is a diplomat) and wanted something a little less conspicuously American so as not to be mistaken for drug dealers. The size and handling seem tailor made for the roads in Tegucigalpa, the ground clearance is very good for the hills and potholes. It's a very comfortable SUV with more than enough room for a family of 3 and two large dogs.
