I got mine yesterday. We were about 50th on the "list", but ended up getting the 5th car that the dealer has sold (northern CA). I asked how this happened, and was told that most are specific ordered cars, and that I was more flexible than others. I originally picked a green 2.5T with 7 seats but no Nav but it sank in the Channel. I got a silver one with Nav. *sooner* than I would have gotten the 1st one. I'm not sure I'm buying the dealer's story. It seems unusual to move up 45 spots, no?<p>I like the XC90 very much, BUT...... it is expensive, has some deficiencies (nothing's perfect), and the country's economy sucks. I was on the fence regarding spending this kind of money. If the dealer had BS'd me on $ at all I would have walked. In spite of what people may say, *no* one *needs* this car. As is typical with any hot new model, there is a lot of vested interest in fanning the PR flames for as long as possible. Any one whose paycheck comes from Volvo would be crazy to do otherwise. I know...I bought a Mazda Miata in 1990, and the hype was the same.<p>This is not to say the XC90 is not a great car. I did buy one after all. But I think there is evidence that things are cooling.
