      Harrisburg Auto Show

      I suppose if I were any good at my job I would have posted this before... but if anyone wants to meet I'm at the Harrisburg Auto Show this week. I'll be at the Volvo stand tonight from 5:30-9 and...

      Well.. that's really only partially true. The servicing dealer certainly wants to help make things right. I believe what they are suggesting is they are out of no cost remedies. If the customer wants...

      If you had your Toyota dealer do all the work that Volvo recommends and with the same fluids it would likely cost the same. You don't have to flush your brakes, but they'll work better and the lines...

      Sorry I worded things poorly. I think OSD is awesome and a great value for customers. Towards the end of the year the savings isn't huge because you do not get incentives as in rebates. I don't...

      Asking on the internet what a good deal is won't likely get you good information. There is simply too many variables in state laws with what they show as a discount, as well as regional rebate...

      Should be yellow. Whenever I show a car with Bowers and Wilkins I always show the color and I've never seen one like that! IMO the experience and value is both in the wonderful acoustics as well as...

      That's pretty irresponsible of Ebays part. Their service was better when it was just for old used stuff and NOS pieces like yours then once people used it as a marketplace for cheap knock off stuff....

      Competing head to head in all segments is what kills smaller car companies... Volvo does Volvo pretty darn well. That being said, I'd be down with a CMA convertible for some entry luxury fun. I...

      We deliver the car, but that's about it. A good dealer will help you with the process though, but it's effectively something you sign up with directly through Volvo.

      You can buy the CPO warranty whenever you want so long as your still covered. IMO if the dealer says you can't buy it after the fact, just give Steingold your business (and frankly they don't mark...

      Maybe fill up before going through the car wash? Most of it should evaporate before your next tank. A little water won't kill anything though.. your tank will get some water condensation just from...

      No. I'm not sure the process but they look good and I haven't had any complaints. It's a 3rd party that comes in and does all our wheels.

      I live on a corn and beans farm that is my wife's family, but I rent and manage about 60 acres of hay from neighbors. My equipment is all old, and while cheap by new standards, it's still probably...

      My income certainly doesn't put me in Volvo's target demographic which would make it seem buying one would be a financially poor choice. I live on a farm, so I'm often buying/fixing equipment that...

      We like to get our wheels reconditioned as it just makes the cars sell faster. It does add to the cost of course.

      It's the direction of the industry. FWIW they recently changed the pricing structure... it used to be pretty affordable to do...

      It's the younger folks who are pushing for the SUVs... In the XC90 class Volvo gets the highest percentage of young affluent market on a per sale basis. Young folks in general don't want wagons and...

      Actually nearly everyone has gone to the app feature... At least with the older gen Volvo's you still had a factory remote start key fob option. Now everyone pretty much uses an app.

      And when...

      That's a new one for me too. We generally get cars with under 40 and I've never seen it. I have a 72k one on the lot and it doesn't show that sort of wear either.

      I really love OSDs set price. They did "add" the destination fee to them, but really before the pricing was just higher, so the offset was about the same. I think any sales price should include all...
