1. Volvo Electrifying All Models By 2019 – note this is not the same thing as making their cars and SUVs all-electric.

2. Polestar (Volvo factory performance division) will tune your 2018 XC60 to 421 hp. “In particular, the tuner ensured more torque is delivered mid-range to ensure accessible thrust is on tap for daily, spirited driving duties. The 8-speed automatic transmission also shifts quicker and holds a gear longer when cornering with high lateral g forces to maintain balance.” 

3. XC40 “accidental” reveal — the small SUV (CUV, more accurately) is coming soon, and it’s going to get a LOT of attention. It’s already started with this leak .

XC40 spied! XC40 revealed in a leaked photo.

7. Inspecting rotors – what to look for…

8. Wonderful old photos of Mike’s 1965 Volvo 544 that just went to the recycler. “It became my canvas over the next coupla years. On and off again. Between school and work. It was a daily driver, fun mobile and even climbed Mt. Washington!”

9. Ugh. 6-speed manual transmission pops loudly and breaks. Any advice for fellow member RHLee222?

10. New Northeast Volvo Owners Club sponsored by FCP Euro!

FCP Euro has started a new regional club – the Northeast Volvo Owners Club. The club is group of Volvo owners and enthusiasts of all ages who enjoy driving, owning, fixing, maintaining, and modifying their Volvos but most importantly having good time with other Volvo owners.

11. QOTM

“If you remove the seat the battery has to be disconnected and you can’t use the car. If the ignition is powered up, the SRS system will detect the missing seat and pop a code which you need VIDA, a higher end scanner, or a dealer tax of $150 to clear. Oh wait, CT? $250. ( just pulling your wallet, I mean, leg)”
