Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Happy 20th MVS!

Without this forum and it's ever knowledgeable members, my wagon would still be sitting undrivable over a bad pnp switch. Thanks to everyone who helped get me this far. I'll drive her until the end of eternity. Here's to another 20 years!

Congrats on 20 years. I have been following the entire time but never registered before. Great information on getting my "toy" from 22,788 miles when purchased to 251,160 read last week. Will use the links whenever I can at IPD and any others I stumble on.

Matthew, congratulations on developing one of the most useful sites on the internet! As a long-time Volvo owner and having been a registered member of your site for the past 13 years, I come here first when something goes wrong! After buying my first brand new Volvo in 1975 (1975 242 GLO) I learned that there are MANY things that can go wrong with one of the most reliable and dependable cars on the planet (when properly maintained!). I drive a 2011 S80 (124.000 miles) and my wife drive a 2016 S80 (83,000 miles). Thanks for this site and for your own longevity on the internet!
