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

Watch this Volvo truck drive up a quarry road using hamster-powered steering

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 12:45:00 EST

Volvo Trucks has been producing some of the most interesting and thrilling commercials around as of late, and this new one involves a live hamster. While you may wonder how could a hamster and a dump truck could be exciting, just know this ain't a Kia Soul commercial: the Swedish truck company enlists the help of a hamster named Charlie to steer an FMX construction truck up a winding road in Ourence, Spain. From the bottom of a quarry. We are not kidding you.
All we ask is that you watch the commercial below to see how it all goes down. If you like what you see, you can then check out a bonus 'behind the scenes' video and press release for details about how Volvo Trucks prepared for the stunt.

Volvo to use Oz as test bed for more Polestar models?

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 09:29:00 EST

We've already told you about the slightly more awesome version of the Volvo S60 that our friends Down Under can now get their hands on. And according to Aussie site Drive.com.au, Volvo may look to the land of Oz for future testing of new, Polestar-tuned, high-performance models.
Volvo has reportedly confirmed that this S60 Polestar run will be an exercise in testing the acceptance of the Swedish tuner's presence as a proper competitor for things like BMW's M division or Mercedes-Benz's AMG. (A tall order, for sure.) "The world is watching this exercise with much interest," Volvo Cars Australia boss, Matt Braid, told Drive.com.au.
Hans Baath, Polestar Managing Director, reportedly hinted that the tuning house had already begun work on a hotter version of the V40 hatchback, but the project was scrapped in order to get the S60 program rolling. If there's success to be found here, this smaller hot hatch could be revisited, as well as a more powerful version of the XC60 crossover.

Volvo shows off 345-hp S60 and V60 Polestar

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 15:45:00 EST

We showed you the hot, new Volvo V60 Polestar a few months back and raved about the fact that this long-roofed family car can hit 60 miles per hour in just 4.9 seconds. Now, we're seeing it and its four-doored brother, the S60 Polestar sedan, in person for the first time.
As we told you when the V60 Polestar was unveiled, both cars are motivated by a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder that generates 345 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, with peak twist arriving between 2,800 and 4,750. Power is channeled to a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system via a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and launch control.
Both Polestar models benefit from a suspension that features Öhlins shocks, while they ride on 20-inch "bespoke" wheels. Six-cylinder Brembo calipers clamp down on 14.6-inch rotors in front, meaning these Volvos should come to a stop as quickly as they get going.
