      Spotted this T8 in downtown Reykjavík.

      Drive the ring rod this past week and spotted five total.

      Great place to visit!

      Yeah, the onyx black looked amazing on my First Edition after almost 3 years. It looks just as good on my new xc60 and I think the onyx black paint on the xc90 and xc60 is even better than the black raven paint on my Escalade. It looks ‘cleaner’, crisper and deeper, at least IMO. Good work and quality control Volvo!

      XC90 spotting /pic thread

      Ironic.!Today, I saw this beautiful XC90 T6 Inscription with AZ plates today at Canyon Lake in Tonto National Park. What is ironic is this XC90 was parked in the same exact parking spot as where I parked my own matching T8 except 21” wheels last Sunday to go on the Dollie Steamboat. Yes, we went on the boat twice in 7 days.

      P.S., We took another family members rental car; otherwise, my T8 would have been side-by-side.

      Just saw this post Brutus, sorry bout' that. When I traded in the XC90 First Edition for the XC60 T6 Inscription (downsized) I traded in the Q7 for the Escalade ESV Platinum (upsized). The Escalade was different at first but I got used to it rather quickly, feels strange driving anything else now, even the XC60. I personally disliked the Q7 a lot and do not miss it.

      I know it'll never ever happen but I love Volvo's styling both inside and out and use of modern technology that I wish they'd make something as huge as an Escalade ESV, call it an XC120 or something!

      I just drove from the downtown area of the small town near me in the Colorado foothills, just 5 miles to my home. I saw 2 new XC90s and 1 new XC60. Incredible!

      Norbtx said - "lol. With the millions of cars they sell, that's probably an insignificant amount. BUT, if it makes you feel better, go ahead an believe that Toyota in not innovative nor reliable.

      I'd say that Toyota's innovation is making their cars reliable. Since they do a better job than most manufacturers."

      I'd say that Toyota's commitment to safety is dubious, at best. The 2018 4Runner, Tundra, Yaris Hatchback are still scoring 'marginal' on the 'small overlap crash test'. The 2018 Rav-4 just scored 'poor' on the passenger side 'small overlap crash test'. Such commitment to safety.

      Plus, My daughter's 2002 V70 was more reliable than my mother's 2004 Lexus Rx330, by a lot.

      And the problems reported here on the XC90 are a tiny percentage of XC90s too. I'm not saying that Toyota/Lexus cars are unreliable. I'm saying you can have nightmare stories with any car brand.

      Huge understatement. When the new small-overlap test came out the RAV4 flunked the test. For years afterwards, Toyota cheated the test to make the car pass, despite it still being "Poor."

      If you watch the XC60 or XC90 crash test videos and compare them to other manufacturers small overlap, the Volvos push themselves away laterally from the wall as they contact it, but maintain as much forward momentum as possible. This reduces how quickly passengers would experience a change from high speed to stopped. Volvo also protected both driver and passenger sides.

This reduces how quickly passengers would experience a change from high speed to stopped. Volvo also protected both driver and passenger sides.
      2,500 Americans die each year in small overlap crashes. Volvo identified this problem long before the IIHS did, which is why the old XC90, first built in 2002, passed with flying colors in 2013, as all Volvos did. And it's 2018, and there are still Toyotas doing abysmally on this crash test.

      Saw this one tonight. Liked it from a distance but up close the black wheels don’t really work with the inscription. If this was a white R-design it would look brilliant. What does everyone think?

      I agree. I'm not sure if it's the angle of the picture, but those wheels don't quite match the look of the vehicle. Perhaps if they blacked out the chrome bits on the sides and the bumper it would match better.

      Spotted George @ Viva this morning making a ‘questionable’ left turn in front of Culver City Volvo. Car has a great stance with those wheels!
