2 Days from Sweden...and I need to pack my bags!

Well, the excitement is building...
And we need to pack!
The nice thing is Volvo is taking care of the rest! (travel-wise anyway)
I received our XC60 experience sheet and schedule of activities which include a Swedish Meatball lunch (of course!), a Factory tour, a workshop, and more...
For a Volvo guy (such as myself), it will be an awesome experience.

4 Days from Sweden

OK, I am getting excited now! In 4 days we will be up and away on our way to Volvo HQ in Sweden! We will be taking delivery of the all-new Volvo XC60, which is said to be the "Safest Volvo ever produced".
That's a pretty impressive claim.
Anyway, we are taking SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) from Newark to Copenhagen, then landing in Volvo's home city of Goteborg (Gothenburg in English). From what I've been told the experience will mirror the same one taken by any of our customers who purchase their cars through OverSeas Delivery....they get the royal treatment from Volvo, including all transportation taken care of, from airport to hotel, to delivery center.
Oh, and in case you are wondering about the XC60 that we will be "picking up", its an Orinocco Blue (Color only available through OSD!) model, standard with a laminated panoramic moonroof (a Volvo exclusive!)

Stimulate Your Stimulus

Well, we all see the economic news and reports...and as a result people are putting off big purchases. It might be a little hard to put off the purchase of your next new Volvo with the announcement of "Stimulate Your Stimulus", which means that you will save at least $1,553 off the purchase price of any new 2009 Volvo. Add to that the loyalty offers, and of course the lease deals (you can see one on this blog for the new S40), and its pretty hard to resist looking at a new Volvo. Of course they all come with 3 Years/ 36,000 miles Complimentary Factory Scheduled Maintenance, which means less money out your pocket...which is always a welcome thing regardless of the economic outlook.

The Trip of a Lifetime...

Well, at the begining of March I will be headed to the Motherland....of Volvo.

That's right! A trip to Sweden.

Talk about's the Overseas Delivery of one of Lehman Volvo's first XC60s. I will be taking part in the same experience that our customer's share when they order their new Volvo through O.S.D.

That means a flight for 2, a factory tour, and driving the new model overseas. And this program costs...Nothing! It's charge for the flight, the hotel stay (1 night at the SAS Radisson) or to have your new Volvo shipped back to Lehman Volvo. And in addition, you even save money on the car! What's not to love? Stay tuned here as I update you on my adventure...
