Hmmm...I see that you got the AWD version. I wonder how the FWD would perform. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

thanks Lenny. That's helpful. I was planning on doing some nearshore trolling this weekend, but couldn't decide whether to take the boat or the 'vo. Gas mileage is better in the xc90.

What kind of a wake does the XC90 put out? Would it be a good wakeboarding vehicle?

One thing to note - we have the special pontoon option. Only available from select dealers. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

<p>Now that is some off-roading, head a little south and lets see it on the dunes with the buggies throwing some sand.<p>I think they have paddle tires for the 20-inch rims.

We were heading south on 101, but the nav system put us in the water. Kind of interesting - latitude looks right, but longtitude was considerably off! Our XC just came back from having the tie-rod replacement done, and it received a SW update that (according to Swedespeed) should fix this problem. We will see...
