      Volvo authorizes, but then you work with the dealer. They found one in another state that was similar(actually better) and had it shipped in. I had a 2016 T8 replaced with a 2018 T8.

      I would agree with this. I too had a 2016 T8 without B&W and air suspension. Put close to 24,000 miles on it and now have a 2018 with B&W and air. Volvo bought it back because of an ERAD issue. ...

      UPDATE---It was a bad rear differential. It is being replaced under warranty. I assume this is a part specific to T8 because of the electric motor but not sure.

      I just don't find this to be an issue at all. My use tends to me many days of in-town commutes, but then some longer trips mixed in. Typically I am getting around 400 miles between fill ups.

      Agree with this completely. Inscription grill chrome looks great on many of the colors, but prefer the "blacked out" grill of both R-design and Momentum against the white.

      Yes and I believe that you can only use about 6.7 kWh of that capacity. the car doesn't let the battery drain fully. So at your rate, you are really only paying $.05 * 6.7 = $0.335 for a full...

      The last couple of months have seen the T8s discounted 12-14k off MSRP. That gets the price equal to the T6(or even below the T6 when you factor i the tax rebate). I suspect that when the 3 year...
