      Care by Volvo subscription expands to full lineup

      Just not the rare S90/V90/V60. Looks nice.

      https://www.slashgear.com/volvos-car...lays-25588571/

      XC40 T5 AWD Momentum – $700
      S60 T5 FWD Momentum – $700
      XC40 T5 AWD R-Design – $750
      S60 T6 AWD R-Design – $750
      V60 Cross Country T5 AWD – $750
      XC60 T5 AWD Momentum – $750
      XC90 T6 AWD Momentum – $800

      XC90 is only $100 more than XC40, good deal. For two years it is only $2.4k more.

      The car could come from dealer stock too. Means quick delivery if available. Insurance can be issued immediately in seven states.

      The California probing on Care by Volvo program seems not affecting this new rollout.

      I’m still not clear what advantage it offers over my 3 year 2019 S60 lease which costs me ~$500/month?

      Especially when you are extremely limited on the options you want as well... really seems to just be limited exterior and interior colors, that's it.

      It is mostly for convenience. Tire wear and tear plan is also included.
      and for young folks that insurance can cost $150 a month.
      And for folks that want to change car after a year.

      How much would an S60 cost you if you leased it for 24 months and with the option to get out of it and into a newer Volvo after 12 months? How much does insurance cost for such car, per month?

      2019 V90 Cross Country Osmium Grey metallic w/ Charcoal L, Advance, Retractable Tow Hitch, Polestar, 19" wheels
      2019 S60 T6 AWD Inscription Black w/ Maroon/Brown L, Advanced, Heated Seats/Steering, Charcoal Headliner, Park Assist Pilot, 4C, Ext Styling Kit, 19" wheels, Polestar

      $2400/year is a lot to pay for the ability to swap out after 12 months.

      My total cost including insurance is $500/mo. For a 36 mo lease.

      Now, if I could swap it at any given time for a different car, an SUV or a wagon for example, that would be an added value. Especially if Volvo was offering a coupe. I believe another car company is offering a service like that?

      As it is over three years the extra cost to me would be $7200. Perhaps it makes more sense for those in ultra high insurance cost areas?
