Oak Ridge, Tennessee, United States

This vehicle was purchased as part of an estate sale.  The original husband/wife owners from North Carolina kept this vehicle garaged and serviced for approximately 23 years !  This car is in MINT condition for the year.  You would be hard-pressed to find a nicer, cleaner and more beautiful 1990 Volvo 240 DL !   The safety & reliability of the Volvo 240 is legendary.  This car is a TANK and is in stunning condition.  A stack of maintenance paperwork, the original owners manual and 2 sets of keys for this Volvo. This vehicle always starts on the first try and simply floats down the highway -- drives SO good, you would never know the car was almost 25 years old !   We would definitely be keeping this one but we are getting a new Acura and unfortunately the Acura will get the Volvo's spot in the garage.  This vehicle has been garaged and protected all of its life and we just don't want it to sit outside (and we don't really have the space for it).  The exterior paint is in GORGEOUS condition with no signs of rust anywhere. I cannot even find a door-ding which is amazing for a 25 year old car.  The interior is a medium blue color and is in extra good condition.  The headliner (white headliner) is nearly PERFECT!  Seat upholstery and carpet are incredibly clean.  This would be a perfect first car or a car for the Volvo enthusiast.  The odometer stopped working at 200,625 miles (this is a very common problem with the Volvo 240's).  The odometer can be repaired at a Volvo dealership or you could probably find a mechanic to fix this.  On the last trip to get the oil changed, the mechanic said the vehicle probably has approximately 220K miles would be his best guess.  He also stated he had never seen a 240 come in to his shop in such great condition.  I was told that the air conditioner requires a freon charge every summer/every other summer.  This vehicle has all of the original Volvo glass (no cracks, chips, etc).  to have original glass all the way around on a car nearly 25 years old is remarkable.  We are located close to the Knoxville TN area.  If you want the car shipped, you will be responsible for setting all of that up.  We have Greyhound Bus Station, MegaBus and an airport all in close proximity.   If you have any questions you can contact me at 865.235.4805 (please contact me before 10PM EST).  If you would like additional pics, please let me know.   Thanks and Happy Bidding !   :)

Geely targeting US market in 2016 with help from Volvo

Fri, 30 Aug 2013

Following reports that it'd team up with corporate sibling Volvo on a Chinese-market car comes a report from Bloomberg that Geely would reattempt its entry into the US market. The Chinese brand had a display at the 2006 North American International Auto Show, but has been absent from the US scene ever since.
The Geely branded cars will be jointly developed with Volvo, and bank on the Swedish manufacturers reputation for safety and reliability. Geely's CEO, Gui Shengyue, explained, "Our acquisition of Volvo enhanced our image and overseas consumers are seeing us as an international company." This represents a change in rhetoric for the brand, after Geely Chairman Li Shufu hamstrung the idea of a closer pairing, citing fears that an association would harm Volvo's reputation. The news of projects between Geely and Volvo first broke last week, although it's unclear if the cars that end up coming to the US will be the same as those being sold in China.
As we reported last week, Geely is already aiming to be the biggest brand in the Chinese domestic market. With this move to the US market, it's also attempting to overtake Chery as China's largest automotive exporter. According to the Bloomberg report, Geely has already moved 180,000 units overseas, which is extremely close to the 184,800 vehicles sold by Chery in 2012. By 2018, Geely anticipates that 60 percent of its sales will be occur outside of the PRC.

Ex-Volvo boss Stefan Jacoby to head GM's international operations

Fri, 02 Aug 2013

He was too talented not to surface somewhere, we just didn't know where and when. Nine months ago, Stefan Jacoby stepped down from his post as Volvo CEO, a move that caught many off guard. At the time, the separation was called "amicable," but word is that the strong-willed executive clashed with owners Geely and the automaker's board.
Jacoby will have a new set of challenges on his hands, as he has just been named Executive Vice President Consolidated International Operations for General Motors. That means the Hannover-born Jacoby will head up the company's operations in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, where he will be responsible for over 100 countries and territories. Jacoby succeeds Tim Lee, who has been named chairman of GM China. Lee will also retain his post as Executive Vice President Global Manufacturing.
Jacoby's dealings with Geely should help him in his Asian market duties, but he also counts time as the head of Volkswagen of China on his resume, so he's very well-versed in the market's peculiarities.

Volvo buyers have best credit scores among all auto shoppers

Wed, 02 Jan 2013

Experian, the US credit reporting agency, recently concluded a study into the financing and credit scores of US car buyers. One of the prime findings was that Volvo buyers enjoy the strongest credit scores among new car shoppers from all brands (nota bene, these are Experian's own numbers and can differ from other agencies). Unlike the Forbes report on the same story, though, we don't find that surprising at all, nor do we think it necessarily helps Volvo's upscale brand aspirations. The Gothenburg-based carmaker has sold its wares on tank-like safety for decades, so it seems natural that its buyers would be just as safe with and attentive to their credit scores as they are with their choice of vehicle.
Audi was ranked fourth by consumer credit score, Porsche seventh and Mercedes-Benz ninth, yet the fact that Volvo outranks them in this metric is probably a plus to its bottom line but not necessarily its image. It's not unfair to say more people desire those other luxury brands - Volvo itself has admitted as much - and people in the throes of desire have been known to be a little more let-it-ride about things like credit scores. The differences aren't huge, though: compared to Volvo's 818, Audi shoppers scored at 813, Mercedes shoppers 802. Lexus and Acura intenders took the other two steps on the top-credit-scores podium.
Mitsubishi took the honors at the other end of the charts, Experian finding that its potential customers, with an average of 604, had the lowest scores. Mitsubishi was followed by Suzuki and Dodge. On the other side of the financing table, Toyota led the way in how many of its vehicles were bought with bank assistance, followed closely by Ford, Chevrolet taking third place. Also of note, and for whatever it's worth, not one automaker made both the 'top ten by financing' and 'top ten by credit score' lists, but four made both the financing and 'bottom ten by credit score' lists: Chevrolet, Nissan, Kia and Dodge.
