      I don't know.

      When my rear pads in my S90 needed replacement only a couple of weeks after I bought the car, I only found out because they were screeching like crazy.

      I have a set of Thule bars. They aren't bad. I wish I had the ones that go in the factory mounting holes though. That would be nicer.

      True, but people usually say "I NEED an SUV for the space". That is just patently false at this point.

      There are no space benefits.

      Volvo Trunk Space

      So, I dropped my sedan off at the dealership for some service and got the Volvo Urban Assault Vehicleô (or as most people call it, the XC90) as a loaner.

      I figured this was excellent timing as I...

      Hmm.

      Alright,

      After moving in May, we are preparing for our first winter with a garage. It's not heated, but shares a wall and a door with the rest of the house, so chances are it will at least be a...

      I've topped it off with off the shelf coolant from the parts store.

      I've really loved my Continental DWS06's.

      Best damn wet traction of any tire I've ever used.

      I don't know what your tire size is though. On very low sidewalls they can be a little noisy.

      Because it's the law.

      Cars are subject to pretty strict factory tint regulations.

      "Light trucks" are exempt from these regulations, which is why SUV's from the factory often have dark tints.

      Also, let me add to this.

      Since you require the greater height to get in and out, have you considered the XC60?

      I was just disappointed that the new owner was passing it off as his own work, when all he did was open the wallet.
