      Love this post. I had no idea that a new XC90 could be had so affordably. The nice thing about the 90 series cars is that the safety/driver assist tech is standard instead of having to add it in...

      I don't see a link to the detailed coverage items - really interested in what is not covered since it's exclusionary. Apologies if I missed it.

      I installed a bolt on hitch on a leased S60 a few years ago to haul a rented trailer. No issues at all with turning it in. Assuming of course that you don't do any damage during installation.

      My wife drove hers daily for 5 years in Syracuse (avg 150" of snow/year). The ground clearance is a little low for blasting through the wall of snow and ice the plow leaves at the end of the...

      As I recall when I traded in my '13 S60 for a '16 S60 Inscription, there was no hole over the rear door for the OEM roof bars to mount to. I ended up getting rid of the bars. I guess they're not...

      This is very unfortunate - one of the reasons I've been buying Volvos is that they just don't rust, even in upstate NY where the salt is on the road if there's even a rumor of snow. It seems much...

      I've owned a "made in China" S60 Inscription for 2 years, as far as I can tell it's just as good as the prior S60 which was made in Sweden (correction: it was made in Ghent, Belgium).

      I think that if you drove slowly, and put a blanket or something over the rear window to protect it from damage, you could drive to the dealer. The aftermarket Tops4Cars accessory allows the top to...

      The last time I looked into this a couple years ago only the XC90 was listed on the report, because of the relatively small number of Volvos sold in the US compared to other makes. There was a lower...
