      100lb? That's a wee Mastiff :^)

      I second the cnvasback recommendation, I've used them in 3 vehicles now. Easy to clean, and very durable/rugged, and awesome customer service. My previous ones...

      The R-design seats are firm, and my initial reaction was "too firm", but I really love them now. Didn't take long, just not what I was used to. The only thing I don't like about firm is that...

      $3k is a lot, you should be able to come in around half that. Which is still real money. But if you're keeping your car a long time, the real cost is for the extra set of wheels. You can source...
    6. Winter tires - what do you have/recommend (rim size and tire size)?

      Just put on my winter shoes, just in time for the first potential winter storm of the season - Iíll add a pic tomorrow. I went with Conti Viking Contact7 in a 235/60r18 on my T8 R-Line. No issues...

      B Mode behavior

      Hi all,

      I find that putting my transmission in B mode(which is my preference) occasionally results in ICE engine revving really high maintaining the tranny in a low gear. Switching to D...

      Man, I know this isn't the most active board, but surprised at the lack of high mileage vehicles! I've only had my XC60 T8 for a few weeks, but if nothing changes in my life, I'll be ~30k miles/yr. ...

      Interesting, I have this too, seems like it's either the seatbelt mount, or the buckle is rubbing. I'll definitely mention it at my 20k, not going to bother with it before that. This is def a...

      I don't get your CarMax issue. The plugs were replaced by Volvo, I don't see how this is on CarMax in any way now. Hopefully Volvo makes you whole though, or close.
