We are the third owners and are sad to let this go.  I love the car, but i never drive it (about 1,000 miles in the last two years).  I have invested $1700 in the car within the last 1000 miles with the plan to return it as my daily driver (car was completely gone over by a Volvo Tech from Keystone Motors), however, the car can not carry the items I need for my work and I must continue to use my truck.  The car was primarily used for my highway commute (once a week, 80 miles round trip), as well as our regular long trips thanks to its roominess, safety, and reliability.  Car handles very well on the Weitec suspension, and is very quiet and comfortable on the highway. Engine has plenty of power and sounds very nice under acceleration.
Overall, the car is very clean.  Paint is in very good condition with the exception on the minor spots on the hood, as well as the common wear spot on top of the rear bumper (see pictures).  Interior is in good shape (could use a simple carpet shampooing), and the seats are very comfortable.  Hatch could use new struts, or continue to use my sweet custom broom handle.  Check engine light is on since tuning has been installed.  ARD said this will subside once the car adapts to the new ecu.

I have been careful to share the condition of vehicle by my description and showing pictures of everything. If there are any questions, please ask. 

Thank you

Pin stripe is fading.  I was going to remove it entirely if I was keeping the car.

Volvo XC90 First Edition sells out in 47 hours

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 10:56:00 EST

Two days ago, Volvo opened the order books on its completely new 2015 XC90 crossover, and just like that, all of the 1,927 First Edition models were reserved in a scant 47 hours. According to Volvo, most of the vehicles were reserved within one hour of the online ordering site launching, and at its peak, seven cars were being sold each minute.
First Edition models wear a unique Onyx Black exterior, and ride on eight-spoke, 21-inch wheels. Inside, amber nappa leather covers the seats, the dashboard is lined in charcoal leather, and there are walnut inlays throughout the cabin.
Under the hood, the XC90 First Edition can be had with either a four-cylinder Drive-E gasoline or diesel engine (if you live in markets outside the US, of course). The twin-charged T6 petrol model comes with 320 horsepower, and sends its power to the ground via all-wheel drive.

2014 Volvo XC60 scooped before launch

Fri, 28 Dec 2012 11:26:00 EST

A Chinese automotive site has snagged the first spy shots of the updated Volvo XC60, completely uncovered. While the overall profile of the vehicle remains intact, the headlights are heavily revised. Gone are the two-piece units, which featured the separate light strip between the main cluster and the grille. In place now are larger lenses, somewhat reminiscent of those found on the S60 sedan. Also updated is the grille, which gets a little wider to meet the new headlights. The grille receives more chrome, while the lower front fascia has been revised with wider openings. A pair of LED fog lights are pushed way out to the corners.
Out back, the license plate holder gets a bold chrome strip above it, and the recessed exhaust is replaced with chromed, dual exhaust outlets that have been integrated into the bottom of the rear bumper.
Inside, the instrument panel has been revised, with a large, centrally mounted speedo, featuring a digital display in the center. According to reports, this is a similar setup to that of the new V40. As such, it appears that the changes are thoughtful efforts to move the XC60 forward by incorporating the most current Volvo design elements.

Volvo demos autonomous self-parking car concept

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 14:59:00 EST

A number of companies are developing autonomous vehicle technology - Google and Audi come to mind - but Volvo is applying its work in the area to a particular usage case: parking. The Swedish automaker has the technology up and running in a concept vehicle, which it says can be dropped off at the curb by its owner and left to its own devices to enter and navigate a car park, then find and park in an available parking spot. Volvo says the process can even be reversed when the owner is ready to go, with the car leaving the car park on its own to meet its key-holder again at the curb.
The vehicle first interacts with Vehicle 2 Infrastructure technology, which places transmitters in the road itself to inform the car (and driver) if the self-parking service is available. The driver then hops out, activates the Self Parking function on his or her smartphone and then leaves the car to do its work. The car uses sensors, all seemingly hidden from view (an advancement of its own in this field), to autonomously navigate the car park, which includes interacting and adjusting to other cars, people and objects.
The technology used here builds off of Volvo's other work in autonomous vehicle research, namely the Safe Road Trains for the Environment (SARTRE) project in which the company managed to create a train of four cars autonomously following a lead truck at speeds up 56 miles per hour. Volvo says the first application of its autonomous research in a production vehicle will happen at the end of 2014 with some level of autonomous steering available in the next-generation XC90. See the system in action by watching the video below.
