      Yes, I agree about Polestar 3 SUV coming out after Polestar 2 sedan, in terms of lacking wisdom. Ford is doing it correctly with the Mach-E, and Jaguar did it correctly with the I-Pace. However,...

      I have lots of experience with old V70s. We traded in a new-bought 1999 V70 wagon for a new-bought 2001 V70XC wagon that we still have, with over 240k miles on it now. Great car -- runs really...

      It's odd that you'd have paddle shifters (a rarity in Volvos) but no back-up camera in a 2016 model. I think you'd get all your missing items if you'd buy a new 2020 Volvo -- which it sounds like...

      So are you saying that with the new software, you have drive modes Eco, Comfort, Dynamic, Off-Road, and "Polestar Engineered"?

      I see the following blurb at the Volvo configurator website for the...

      When you all are speaking of range, do you mean the range that your car computer says, or are you actually watching the mileage on your odometer to see how many all-electric miles you are getting? ...

      Well, I test-drove a stock 2007 S80 sedan with a naturally aspirated V8 engine yesterday, and I can say that I'd love to see Volvo put a naturally aspirated V8 into a 2021 Cross Country wagon! I'd...

      That's a poorly labeled graph. The key at left with four drive modes doesn't match the eight graph lines in a logical manner, unless we're missing something in the labeling. I assume that a...

      Any Volvo with the super- and turbo-charged engine should have paddle shifters, and that's one reason that has kept me from getting a new T6 or T8 Volvo. The gear-shifting in these isn't the best...

      The transmission and suspension and engine seem good to me; there appears to be no rust (it evidently was garaged), but my advice is to put it up on a rack and look closely at the underside. I did...

      The car drove well. I think this is an excellent price for a very rare Volvo (V8 sedan) in very good condition with very low miles (it was owned by an elder man, and apparently garaged most of the...

      I agree with this statement. My wife, however, likes being up higher than the driver position of a Cross Country. I prefer the better driving dynamics of a wagon over an SUV. So I get wagons, and...

      There's news this week that Geely is using its Volvo ownership and its ownership share of Mercedes to have them work together on future ICE design. I'm wondering if this might mean that Mercedes...

      Well, building SUVs is also Porsche's "bread and butter". And the point about Polestar is performance. So it's not unreasonable for CarWow to do a fun drag race with a vehicle that Volvo purports...

      I added a little to the end of my third paragraph since you responded. I just want to add, regarding Macans, that they hold their value extremely well. I did a lot of research on that before buying...

      Yes, I'll try to answer. I have special-ordered my last two Porsches (a 2018 Panamera and a 2019 Macan), and as a consumer, that is a huge thing that I like about Porsche -- that you can get what...

      Interesting... We're also a Volvo/Porsche household. I've had Panameras and now a Macan. My 2001 V70XC wagon has 240k miles on it, still going strong on original engine and transmission -- but I...

      I totally agree: I would only get the ICE-only Cross Country wagon, to get much better AWD delivery -- and the T5 version seems better than T6 or T8 because the supercharger messes with the...
