Check out the MVS Volvo Forum back in 2002!

https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/this-is-what-volvo-forums-looked-like-in-2002.html 

“The early P2 cars were on Volvo dealer showroom floors. EVs were conceptual futurism, not counting the handful of mass-market vehicle electrification business failures. The Segway was set to change the way we moved around cities. “Crossover” was a term used most often in dance instruction settings.”

Uber-XC90-Pedestrian Death Update

Atacama Interior Beauty

“What is this interior? Is that an S60? What cars came with this color? Does it fit in a wagon? ..oh, fold-down back seats, maybe not.” https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=474944

Lemforder Quality Dipping?

“Just sharing this, usually I am a Lemforder supporter but it seems they have some trouble with their bushing quality lately (may happen to any company, hope they come back quickly with a better product)

Perhaps too soon to be sure, but it’s good to start talking about it as most of us usually buy and recommend these control arms.”  https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=474612

Nostalgia for 1980s Volvos on the Rise

POTM

https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=474365#p474365

“The location is France on the way up to Lac du Mont Cenis. Just next to the Italian border across which the road became narrower and pretty much winding down the side of a cliff.” MVS Forums member Rattnalle 

QOTM

“The driving experiences are totally different. The 98 feels like an older car, but still has enough luxury to make it very comfortable. I feel much more connected to the mechanics on the 98. The 05 feels like the newer cars and I feel removed from it. Yeah its nice, but not the same. Some would say for the better, but not me. I also prefer the throttle response on the earlier one.” MVS Forums Contributor Clockboy  https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=473120#p473120
