      With leather... how many people actually take care of the seats? It's a natural product and requires some care. I sorta imagine most people just use em up without ever putting any sort of conditioner...

      FWIW here in the US anyhow, it would be impossible to accidently get an R design rather than an Inscription in the order bank. Volvo allocates cars by trim/motor. So I just placed an order today for...

      Our used car manager just sold his a year or two ago. It was pretty high miles I recall but in great shape and brought a good figure. It was purchases by an enthusiast out of state. Honestly, I...

      Then I do stand corrected! But the customer interface really doesn't change. It doesn't matter who covers the claim so long as it's covered.

      Volvo tacks the wheels on to just about every order, so unless you go in and change the specs, that's just how they come from the factory. It's about the look. I don't feel a difference in ride, but...

      Vinyl outsold CDs last year in the US. That's about all you need to know for why.

      I don't think you're wrong that such a schedule would work fine for customers, but it is still an environmental waste. If the oil is still good, why put 5 quarts down the drain to replace one? FWIW...

      It's sensors too... I believe it can be added but def a lot more than $200... It's sorta dated tech at this point, but if you like it, it should be able to be added.
