      Also consider what your local dealer stocks, the one in KC has 70 XC90s in stock and half that number for XC60s. People will buy what they can see, drive and experience. I worked at a dealer years...

      And if you leave them out without a cup or bottle in them the rattle will drive you nuts. Poor design.

      Having had a few sets of Pirellis, to include the OE ones that came on my 05 V70R, they simply do not last. When half the tread is gone they get very noisy and it will drive you nuts. I can't believe...

      Consider it a blessing in disguise. When it is out and does not have a cup/bottle inserted the darn thing rattles. It drives me nuts.Guess nobody thought to road test that feature.

      Taped the one on my wife's XC with clear helicopter tape. Can't see it and it holds tight. Bought it off of Amazon.

      CR is inconsistent in their approach. When I worked for a Volvo Dealer in the early 2000's CR would hammer new Volvo reliability and then turn around and recommend the same car, one year older on the...

      Just picked up a 2019 and there are white marks where your elbow rests on the door panel. I assume it is skin cells accumulating in the textured surface.

      Now if they only market their product in the US. Never mind, that falls into the "too hard to do" category as well. At least it keeps you from seeing a lot of Volvos just like the one you drive.
