Volvos do hold their value quite well - nothing exceptional. I have owned quite a few. Mind you, the previous XC90 with the T6 was a dog. Many many problems. I almost bought one until I read the horror stories. The 5 cylinder is fine but the bi-turbo has a horrible 4 speed auto and a ton of issues with the steering/suspension. Last fall, I was offered a 2004 CPO with Nav for $35K and walked away. Basically, Volvo needed a 'premium' powertrain to offer in the 90 in addition to the 2.4/2.5 They crammed the S80 engine in there without much thought apparently.

The new V8 is very very nice and is also going in the new S80.
