      No exhaust tips through the rear bumper? Nice change if no. Most were semi-fake anyway. Glad they didn't really mess with what are really handsome vehicles. Compare the classic front end with...

      I'm with you on this. It's certainly better in the Volvo than in my two previous vehicles (one Jeep, one Mercedes). It only bothers me on two occasions: Stop and go traffic, and when I'm about to...

      I wonder how many of you who find the low beams lacking previously owned cars with the sharp vertical cutoff that is typical of LED's...and is that the issue? As I've noted before, that cutoff is...

      I just started a lease of a 2019 Mercedes CLS and find the headlights of my V90 OR better in low beam and much better in high beam. The low beam LED has that unpleasant sharp cut-off on both cars...

      For his safety, he's always in a carrier when in the car. As for the leash, when he permits it, the one I put on is in fact a harness that's similar to what's pictured.

      Assuming the headlights on the S90 are the same as on the V90, I'm surprised the IIHS doesn't give them a good rating. I find them superb on my V90, certainly a benchmark.

      Doesn't often get that hot in Maine, though we do have the humidity. There's a lot of airspace in my V90CC but things cool down quickly and have been kept quite comfortable during our hot spells.
