and RAM, at least in north america.  they will keep Dodge around to sell muscle cars as long as fuel prices are low, when they start to rise i see that going away too....

i agree with the avalon, i read his requirements and all i could think was, well, how new of an Avalon can he afford?

How about a lightly used v70, they can be had for waaaay less then 50k, just sock away the difference for replacement parts ;)

I owned a PT Cruiser for nearly 17 years. I bought one of the first ones available at my local dealership (in purple even). I did pay a slight markup over MSRP, but not much, and pretty negligible with the combination of the absolute piece of crap i was trading in and the outstanding loan on said piece of crap. Read more

I’m hoping that the redesigned S60 and V60 push the 60 series off the list, but really, i doubt it.  just not enough folks looking for volvo “cars”.

Not a vehicle in particular, but really, just fly to New Mexico or Arizona, search craigslist for older pickups, and drive it back to PA.  Rust issue solved (well for now anyway)

i got an offer like this recently on my 6 to 7 year old car (second owner).  i thought it strange as it was not even an automated call, but an actual person at the local dealership.

Ok, i know the X6 is ridiculous, a fairly purposeless vehicle.  If this were an X6M that then got the “mansory” treatment i would give some kudos just for knowing what it was and rolling with it.  like a really bad B-Movie that knows it is a really bad B-Movie and just goes over the top to prove it.  However even at Read more

for mansory, this is about as subtle as it gets. from the photos the interior was not nearly as bad as i expected from seeing the “mansory” badge.  the exterior, different story there...

did half the design team forget to switch CAD to use metric units instead of imperial? or vice versa? (i know it’s french and probably all used metric, but wow, that is what it looks like).

the top one is a late 60's era olds toronado, my uncle had one and crammed all the kids in the back of it.  the bottom on is from again the 60s, but a 200 series Mercedes, they used variants  on it for many models.  someone who knows way more about MB’s of the time could probably give a better run down.

ok, with the advent of all of the screen based “instrument clusters” i think automakers should stop adding new and different was to view the gauges and just add emulation modes for these old digital or mechanical dashes.  or just open up the API and allow 3rd party suppliers to load “add-ons” to emulate these things

i actually considered getting one of these on the used market. well, when i say that my thought was really getting a Flex on used market, but then I thought, hey, maybe i can afford the luxury brand model of the Flex. I then had to remember that Lincoln was the luxury brand for Ford. I then had to dig in and eliminate Read more

the updated infotainment system is a huge plus, just look at the current model and compare. also, from what i’ve read, the usable interior space on the new model is much greater. i looked at a current generation v60 and the rear seat room is “poor” at best. put some tall people in the front seats and the rear seats Read more

I currently own a C30 and it is a wonderful car. i bought mine a few years ago and it was right in that price range so all good on that front. I get more questions about mine from random folks than i thought i ever would, some don’t even realize it’s a volvo (though is says so right there...). the only criteria i Read more

i find the styling on cars from this era so refreshing now. at the time i probably thought they were to “blobby”, but given the current trend of endless creases (i’m looking at you toyota) and bat-crazy headlight design, these are a model of simplicity. plus, that greenhouse man!

i looked at the current generation of V60's but didn’t pull the trigger. the main deciding factor was the rear seat room. with the driver’s seat in a position for anyone over, say 5'10, there was just absolutely no room in the rear seats. I’ve seen reviews of the new XC40 and all of them say the rear set room is good, Read more
