      Calling all Volvo-natics

      So here it is at last, the Michigan Chapter Forum. Let's have a roll call for those who live in and near Michigan. Please reply with an introduction and let us know what part of the 'hand' you live in. As for me, I live more in the wrist, that is to say South Bend, IN. I missed the Gilmore meet last year due to a wedding, but plan to make it a regular part of my summer.

      So, now its your turn...

      Hi, I live in the lower thumb area of Michigan, really close to Detroit. You may see me in my S40 with the FDC bracket and temp swede plate in front thanks to OSD. The color is brilliant blue met.

      Just joined and have 2 volvos

      Hello all, just joined and currently have 2 Volvos. I'm from more of the wrist area, in Kalamazoo. I have a 2009 S60 that I've had since about 42,000 miles. It currently has around 169,000 and runs like new. Just replaced pretty much the whole front end to include axle shafts, changed out the rear shocks, and upper and lower torque mounts. I plan on passing this car to my daughter in about a year and a half and wanted to refurbish the worn out items so she can proceed to put another 169,000 miles on it. I also just got myself a 2015 S60 with the 2.0 liter Drive E engine. Love the car. Wondered, since this is a relatively new engine, has anyone had issues with it I need to be aware of while it's still under warranty?

      I won’t be available this season as I travel for business and then will be out of the country for the month of October leading into November. And since my car has never seen foul weather let alone snow it will soon be parked until spring.

      But would love to get to a few events next year as I will be shipping the car to France within the next two years.

      Keep me posted.

      Holland. No Volvo yet, but anxiously awaiting my V60 PE. OSD scheduled for October which means the car might arrive as a Christmas present in late December!

      Checking in with my newly acquired V8 XC90, out of Auburn Hills. Still learning about Volvos but happy to turn wrenches and lend a hand if needed. Also have access to an indoor shop and enclosed car hauler.

      Hey guys, I live in Traverse City in the pinky of MI. I love Volvo's obviously and I have a 2005 Volvo XC70 and she is my babe. I am also a Volvo Product Specialist. So my job is to consistently keep up to date with all of the new and current features in the Volvo vehicles and to show them off to customers after they are sold. As well as go to events and show of the sexy whips.
