Re: What year did a Volvo become a Ford/Geely?

Yes but car companies do strive for brand consistency regardless where a particular model was built. And a lot of what we perceive as 'quality' is design engineering that isn't really affected by changing the location of manufacture. I agree with you but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with...

Well the people who run and work for each corporation are certainly Earthlings I am hesitant to call the corporations themselves Earthlings.

Re: T5R Parking Brake Not Working After Cable Replacement

Thanks Neil for the quick response. You brought up a lot of good suggestions so I'll just reply to each one: I took the driver side assembly apart a couple of times to check everything over. Both springs are seated and intact. There's tension in the handle when I pull up on it and the cables are Pro...

Re: Volvo 850 Jack Point Failure

The whole emergency jack system is a bad design. My volvo jack failed the other day while inspecting my seized caliper.
