      Funny, I like the XC40 Recharge because it looks like a normal car. I've been annoyed by the look of every single EV I've evaluated so far (I'm looking at you BMW, and Teslas just don't look nice to...

      Funny you posted this. After having this vehicle for about 21 months, I just discovered that little sliding cover today. It is really hard to open and close to the point of hurting a knuckle pulling...

      I think perception-wise, most of the buying public is a decade or two away from being able to apply the luxury label to cars manufactured in China at lower cost like the XC60. The Chinese...

      You can't have an "SUV" without mud flaps and lots of rubber on the tires. The whole point is the utility look and feel. Small rims, big tires, and utility accessories makes it look right.

      I've had Osmium grey for 11 months and think the color is pretty bland and basically meh. My advice to shoppers would be Pine grey which looks better and has uniqueness to it IMO.

      I have to say I've had Start/Stop in my previous vehicles, including my last XC60 and various rental cars and it never bothered me. But now in month 11 of my 2018 T6 AWD XC60, I can fully confirm...

      Since leasing my 2018 XC60 in November, Seattle has usually had about 15 to 25 days of precip per month. And some of the wettest most rainy months on record. Commuting in this horrid awful depressing...

      That's a good list of pro/cons. I like to whine about those annoyances because they bug me too, but not enough to change brands. In fact I hardly pay attention any more. Volvo has a long way to go to...

      I find pilot assist steering increases fatigue in current form. Just too much fighting to move the vehicle back on track. It's kind of disappointing actually. The ACC is improved and great for...

      IIUC, that's just Spotify keeping your play queue in sync across different instances of the app for your account via the cloud connectivity. But I probably need a video of it to follow along with...

      Didn't notice any change either from before/after install. Only downside is usually a tiny hit on gas mileage. One reason mud flaps aren't standard on just about any passenger vehicle anymore, in the...
