Re: A little video of the xc90 somewhere in the north of Sweden! (mauritx)

The web site says the clip is no longer available... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Sorry, as a typical male I didn't read your instructions... I did find it, cool!<p>The Swedish reporter is of course a little biased, but appears he really liked the new diesel with the six gear manual transmission compared to the other SUV's.<p>Thanks for the link, I started freezing just watching the video... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

I noticed that there are catually two videos with the same title. The one I watched was impressive. Obviously DSTC is turned off. What about all of the underhood inspection and then the shot of what looks like antifreeze on the snow?

The anti-freeze hose broke spilling all liquid on the ice. If I understood the reporter right, they had to leave the XC90 there as they didn't have the right tools.<p>The reporter was very impressed with the road handling and snowhill climbing capabilities of XC90.<p>The choice of competition was odd, a Kia Sportage and Toyota RAV4. Only the Mercedes ML350 would be true competition in my mind. The reporter did not like the handling of the M-B. The ride was "too soft when it needed to be firmer and too hard when it needed to be softer".

The problem with the xc90 was that the original turbo was demage and volvo change the turbo and put a new turbo that was bigger when they realised their mistake they change back to the original. But they forgot to change a plast pipe that was burnet because the bigger turbo.. the green liquid that you see is coming out of the pipe. <p>The Xc90 did a very god jobb. He said that the xc90 come upp is those place that the another jeep stay half the way.... He said that the xc90 have a very sensitive anti spin wheel (RSC?) system and that the power is going just to the wheel that have best contact to the surfice and that the xc90 is still the best. <p>mauritx
