Was initially thinking of buying a BMW X5 but as XC90 is a seven seater, I opted for it.
I must admit that to date, I am very pleased with my choice. It is very smooth on the road, the interior is stunning. I opted for an SE diesel model with Communication pack as an accessory. The Communication pack consists of a built-in hands-free and a corded telephone along with satellite navigation.
The satellite navigation CD has been the only disappointing feature as while driving from Milton Keynes to Manchester, when we drove on the M6 toll, the Satellite Navigation system just went crazy, asking us to take a sharp left turn on the middle of the motorway. The Volvo dealer who said to us at the time of handing over the keys said that its better to update the Navigation DVD yearly but later admitted that all the data collected for the Navigation DVD seems to be 'OLD' as the M6 toll is there for more than two years and I have only had my XC90 for the last thirty or so days.
Otherwise, its a beautifully built car. I personally feel that it's a better buy than X5.
I have this vehicle on a 90k-mile, three-year contract.
Because of the high mileage, I seem to be finding many problems earlier than other users.
Tyres are an expensive issue but the majority of my complaints are build-quality problems and niggling, irritating, rattles and creaks.
Intermittent audio / nav / phone shutdown. Rusting wheel nuts. blown speaker, door handle falling off etc.
This would be acceptable on many makes but not Volvo surely?
