      Any chance it's that easy on a '13 C70??? Ours has a crumpled area and I don't see how to fix it from the front. Removal might make that a little more interesting AND possibly make way for a paint...

      Hmmmm. Just got my eleventh Volvo; but I've never joined VCOA. Are you saying VCNA would provide a coupon??? Might it work on a Polestar upgrade???

      I think I might break it out during a 16-hour trip! I'm not a cruise control guy; but two previous Volvos had the adaptive CC and I would use it when traveling between Dallas and Atlanta...I-20 is...

      Take note that it is not instantaneous . I believe it actually reads signs; so turning from a 45mph road to a 65mph highway might take a while to register. I know ours does as we have such a...

      Are you for or against? Texas is the first state(out of four) I've lived in that requires a front plate. With 25 million vehicles in the state, that's a LOT of money that could be saved by...

      I haven't heard a peep about the '21s. That's early for Volvo, based on the last 20 years of cars in our family. But, you are in on the secrets ;)

      I was half-tempted to leave off the front plate on the XC40 we picked up yesterday(Texas "requires" a front plate; but there is no penalty for not displaying one).
      HOWEVER, ours(and every other new...

      What's the Polestar tune going for? I had it in one of our C70s and didn't think it was worth the cost(by a long way!). It was actually in our '11 and I didn't bother putting it in our current...

      Well, upon further review, as I perused the Monroney sticker on a showroom XC40, I came across this little tidbit of good news:

      Funny you should mention wipers and brakes. Our '13 C70 just got new rear brake pads(70k miles) and still has the original wiper blades(after 7 years in the Texas heat). Those are GREAT blades!(I...
