The Volvo xc90 is an incredibly solid, safe car, as driver or passenger,

I originally purchased my Volvo for its safety features. The seat headrests and the steel bars down the sides of the car caught my attention as I did the research. My Volvo glides as though on butter down the road, the cruise control is a feature I use often. It adds to the enjoyment of the trip.

The Volvo xc90 is very safe and durable. It is very spacious and comfortable.

I absolutely love my Volvo vc90. I feel really safe when I am driving down the road and it feels like a very strong, heavy duty car. There are some minor interior details that need fixing, but that comes with the car being 12 years old. Overall, I love this car and would recommend it to anyone!

- Molly M

Volvo xc90 makes family feel safe. Until repair cost are required.

What I like about Volvo xc90 is very spacious with 3 rows of seats which also fold down, the power of v8 engine, reliability, very safe, and it does hold its value compared to some other makes and models. What I dislike is the expense associated with low miles/gallon and repairs/maintenance.
