I have been looking to replace my current SUV and after looking at all the different makes and models have come to the conclusion that the XC90 is the one to get. It has the best luxury, space, gas mileage, conveniences, electronics, safety etc, etc for the money of all the different brands. And it looks nice. After having driven one and finding the local dealer not really interested in getting them I have decided that I don't need to pull the cord now and can wait. Reading a lot of the messages here I realize there are a lot or sporadic problems that people are dealing with and are waiting for Volvo to make improvements in coming months. This is not unusual for a new model. Since I plan to hold off awhile and am going to need to factory order anyway I am thinking of waiting until the 2017 release. Many of the fixes and improvements should be incorporated by then. So my question is when will the 2017 model be released and when would one be able to place the order. Volvo must have a history of model release dates so would appreciate any input. Thanks.
