Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Volvo XC90?
Roomy in front and middle isles.
Very attractive exterior.
The car is the epitome of driving class without all of the bells and whistles.
Drives strong, moderate acceleration capability which prevents irresponsible driving.
Beautiful sound system and great placement of interior adjustment knobs.
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Volvo XC90?
For the class that the car competes, seems to be at the bottom.
Car could use better 'bells and whistles' inside the car.
Center console design should be sturdier and accessible.
More outlets for electrical appliances.
More third row space for adults.
Add at least 6 inches to the cars length and another 6 in depth or height.
2006 Volvo XC90 Review:
Overall, the vehicle is average. It falls short of the Volvo owner's longevity expectation. The old motto, "Drive the Volvo like you hate it" will not survive with today's Volvos. My car is always in the shop and it is just a matter of time when your Volvo will get another transmission. Most fall apart around 80k-100k miles. Get extended warranties for all parts. Volvo maintenance is horrible. Mechanics are of poor quality, seems Volvo spends more time planning to repair cars than selling.
My entire family has driven Volvo since 1985, sadly to say after: my sister's car caught on fire, poor maintenance issues and repairs with dad, mom, sis, bro, and myself....our view has changed about the brand.
I have owned the S40, S80, and currently own the XC90. Mom and Pop each own a S80, bro owns a S60, and sis owns a S40. My XC90 drives the best, when in operation but the poor quality of dealer mechanics and constant attention of the care downgrades the car's rating.
The car does not have quality lined within the parts we cannot see. Nor is the service system at the dealerships equip to car for you car with the luxury tag you expect from Volvo. My sis bought two new suv's, a Mazda and a GMC, both outperform the XC90.
