      Lights on for wipers are so people can see you, not so you can project forward... so LED DRL do the job just as well. Headlight laws in this country have always been behind technology and therefore...

      It's a software only update so it's pretty quick if everything goes right. I think the guys get paid for 7/10 of an hour, though if something hiccups then it can take twice as long... Always best to...

      Term also matters. No one is getting 1.49% from Volvo for 60 months.. and auto rates have definitely gone up since 2018. Not everyone marks up rates just because we can.... but if you're at a place...

      I think it's quite literally the dumbest option available. Yes it works (not for the garage you're talking about). But if you can't park you absolutely should not be driving. It doesn't work better...

      More vinyl sold last year in the US than CDs... I'm certainly part of that. Never gave up my vinyl and got lots given to me back when my friends parents were trying to unload it in the 1990s.

      No AM radio on the T8. Some folks that's a deal breaker for and others have asked if AM is still even a thing.

      I'm imagine for the sake of not leaking you could do an easy repair, but IDK from experience myself. I probably wouldn't let that stand in the way. Make sure the timing belt has been replaced if it's...

      C40.... electric "Coupe" (ala BMW with 4 doors) and a bit of a hatchback...that's the most recent I've heard, along with the XC100.

      Might even be one of the ones under good will replacement. Worth asking at least. Volvo has done free replacements for some steering wheel and front grill logos to help keep the brand looking good....
