Volvo S60 saved his life!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvxDOAI0bRk In this country there's a growing demand for in-car surveillance, for when something happens it'll be recorded on tape. A BMW changing lanes in wet weather hit this 2011 Volvo S60. (RWD tailspin?) ha! Immediately, we see that the DSTC applied brakes to keep...

Re: Chinese Volvo S80 L

Here's a human translation :-) 1st minute: the Chinese Volvo S80 follows BMW and Audi in this market segment in lengthening the wheelbase; the model is all wheel drive (which in addition to the CV joints also makes the car draw a larger circle around turns). Model reviewed is the 3.0T engine; the gu...

Domesticated Geely Volvo S80 L

Youtube I'm really not a fan of chrome Chinese characters on-a my car. The Chinese computer interface is quite welcoming, th...

I couldn't stop laughing.

But apparently the marque modification was unnecessary, as Volvo means "I roll" in Latin. So.... ROFLVO, guys!!

Re: Geely, Ford sign Volvo deal

Volvo has solid base in China already with a production plant in China (Ford-Mazda-Volvo). They make the S40 and S80 exclusively. They're also making the S80L in China, which is like the Executive Series but following the Lexus and BMW "L" convention..

Re: Matt's Volvo Blog #4 - Volvo Rot :: Discussion area ::

When I first came to this site in 2003, in one of the first articles I read, Matthew "blogged" about why would you buy a Volvo. Paraphrasing, he said "If you are expecting Volvos to be as reliable as your Camry, you would be disappointed. But it's for the other things-- the Volvo's safety image and ...

Re: Fine S80 murdered for "cash for clunkers"
