      Yeah in the Seattle area they are fairly common, and perhaps most readily thought of as the next step up from a Subaru I would say. In passing you'd just be thought of as someone who is conservative...

      Turned a year old today! If it weren't for the schmuck that rear-ended it last week, been mostly flawless! Fortunately a new bumper is on order and all should be well.

      Got it. Love it. Never looked back.

      In all seriousness, the advantage is felt in all drive modes. The "off the line" acceleration isn't much different, but shift points and power delivery at speed...

      Thanks... good advice. It does appear to have a larger gap at the seat hinges between the bottom and back on the driver side now. Seems the best approach would be to have all of this dealt with at a...

      Rear-ended - WHIPS System?

      Unfortunately my wife was rear-ended on the freeway the other day. She's fine but our S60 has its first battle scar at barely a year old. The cosmetic damage is limited to scratches and gouges on the...

      Yep, Volvo put one too many options on the Inscription trim :) Just a case of not designing for it in the first place as the Inscription came out well into the current platform's cycle. I'd miss...

      Seconded. Purchasing process was fairly painless and low pressure. They offered a price quote over email and their starting point was better than what we'd get through A-Plan or Costco (granted...

      Yep, seems odd that the T8 RD starts at the same price as the T8 Momentum considering it carries a premium for the other power trains. Sign me up if true though! That seems like a great deal.

      Which is why I hope what they're saying about XC90 production shortages is true. Funny how overall sales are down about 1500 units, which is directly in sync with how many fewer XC90s were sold. ...

      Exactly... I feel like folks are equating "sticker shock" with Volvo not caring about utility anymore. The new V90CC promotional vids completely refute the sense that utility has been forgotten - I...

      Echoing others - that seems like a high price for a CPO that doesn't have a backup cam or the tech package (mainly adaptive cruise). Polestar aside, that would be a deal breaker for me. Yeah the RD...

      Unfortunately I've noticed this too on our 2016, far more so than the 2005 we traded in (either that or we never knew what it could have looked like since we didn't buy it new). Like you said most...

      Yeah I have no major issues with it - I care far more about the "driving/safety" tech than the infotainment, and those features all work as-advertised and are on par with the competition. Frankly,...

      Bodes well if folks are already ordering sight (and price) unseen on day one. I remember there was so much fanfare surrounding the number and speed of the initial uptake of XC90 FEs, but I have a...

      I'm not sure the depreciation argument is entirely fair or true. If there is a product that people want and are willing to pay a premium for, it shouldn't play a huge role. We bought our S60 new...

      Nice, the shadowy shots had me thinking it would look much more like a "mini-90", but this would indicate otherwise - definitely a look more its own and appears a bit lower and leaner than the XC90,...

      I think the OP is making the point that the S80 sold more in its first full production year than the S90 is currently. No way the S80 is currently beating the S90 in sales. All of the arguments...
