Volvo and Wheels

If there is one thing that really completes the look of a car it's the wheels. Volvo has traditionally provided some of the best OEM wheel designs and that trend continues with the all-new Naughty Volvo S60...

What you see here is the Freja, a fantastic graphite/alloy wheel available as a NO-CHARGE option for the next few days. But don't worry, the all-New Naughty Volvo S60 comes standard with some fantastic 18-inch alloy wheels.

One Good Volvo Deserves Another

Well, these are truly the best times to claim a 2010 Volvo, and if you currently own a Volvo then the deals are even better. For example, at Lehman Volvo York we have a 2010 Volvo S80 3.2 with a power moonroof, Climate Package (Heated Seats, Rainsensor Wipers, Headlight Washers), and CD+HD Radio with a price of $42,050. This month, current Volvo owners can claim this flagh ship Volvo for only $34,800 after all discounts. That's a LOT of car for less than the price of some entry-level luxury cars. Just one example of a great car at a great price at the RIGHT TIME.

Take a little trip...Volvo Overseas Delivery

Alright, well its not a little trip...its Volvo Overseas Delivery. A FREE trip to Europe AND a great deal on any new Volvo. Here is a story shared by Pam Peffer, one of our Overseas Delivery Specialists. She had the chance to experience OSD for herself:

This month, Volvo is launching the All New 2011 Volvo S60. As part of that launch, Volvo invited me to participate in the Volvo Overseas Delivery. After all of these years of selling the Overseas Delivery experience, I was going to go to Sweden to see it for myself. My husband Todd and I were one of the first to drive the new S60 T6 AWD and let me tell you - the car is AMAZING and you will NOT be disappointed!

I have been telling my clients for years that this is the greatest way to purchase their Volvo, but now I was going to be able to see for myself. So is it really "too good to be true"? From the moment I called Corporate Travel to make the necessary plans I found out just how professionally this whole process is handled. They took care of all of my flight arrangements and our hotel stays as well. Our Travel Agent even suggested that after my stay in Gothenburg, Sweden, that I should spend a few more days in another city. Stockholm didn't work out, so we decided on Copenhagen, Denmark.

The highlight of our trip was that we were treated to what all Overseas Delivery clients enjoy while on their trip. These benefits include free tickets for 2 on SAS Scandinavian Airlines, free entrance to the Business Class Lounge at Dulles International Airport, complimentary transportation from Gothenburg's Landvetter Airport to the hotel, Volvo Factory Tour, Lunch of Swedish Meatballs and so much more.

Gothenburg, Sweden, is a wonderful city. Most everything is within walking distance and the people there are extremely friendly. Everyone speaks English and they even drive on the right side of the road. On our third day there, we took a short bus trip to the island of Marstrand. A short ferry ride over to the island took us to a completely different world. No cars allowed on the island, cobblestone everywhere you walked, and a fortress that sits high in the middle of the island. After our 3 day stay in Gothenburg, we took the high speed rail to Copenhagen, Denmark. We chose to travel this way so that we could enjoy the scenery. It was a wonderful train ride, very affordable, and we were even served lunch and all of our drinks were complimentary.
Our stay in Copenhagen was amazing. We stayed in the Nyhavn district which is the famous canal with the multicolored houses on both sides. It was like one big party every day with locals gathering with their beers while they cheered and clapped for all of the boats coming in to dock. The best "tourist" activity is the harbor tour which takes you through all of the canals of Copenhagen. Our hotel, Nyhavn 71, is a famous hotel that was once a warehouse for the Oriental Spice Company. Built in the 1600s, it was renovated into a hotel with all of the original fir beams still exposed.

I highly recommend the Volvo Overseas Delivery experience. You get a complimentary trip with hotel stay and the best souvenir of all - a brand new Volvo!

When Volvo first turned their front wheels...

If you know a bit of Volvo's history you might think 1993 was the first year that Volvo introduced their front-wheel-drive vehicles with the 850...but you would only be partially correct. 1993 was the first year for the US debut of front-wheel-drive Volvos, but 8 years earlier Volvo unveiled the 480 to the European market...

Volvo 480 ES was the result of a strategic product planning project. This project - which was all about the future Volvo cars and called Galaxy - contained several suggestions for future vehicles. To put it simple, Galaxy resulted in the 400 and 850 cars. Work progressed on two fronts; at Volvo Car Corporation in Gothenburg with the larger car and in the Dutch company Volvo Car B.V. with the compact models.
Volvo 480 ES was the first model to emanate from a whole new generation of cars from Volvo Car B.V., Volvo Car Corporation's Dutch subsidiary that built its cars in the Born plant. It wasn't just the technical layout with front-wheel drive that made the 480 different from other Volvos, it was also sleek and boldy wedge-shaped, a 2 + 2 seater with its rear body shaped like an estate car and a glass tailgate. It also featured pop-up headlamps and the classic Volvo grille with its diagonal ribbon was merely hinted - positioned below the front bumper. Its exterior was the work of Dutchman John De Vries with Briton Peter Horbury being responsible for the inside. The latter was later to become head of design at Volvo Cars.

Hole in One Bags a Jag! (news from our Jaguar Harrisburg dealership)

OK, so a break from the news of Lehman Volvo to present a really cool story from our Jaguar Harrisburg dealership...

Hole-In-One prizes are offered at many Golf Outings throughout the country, but actual winners are far and few between. That wasn’t the case at Hershey Country Club Saturday, July 31st as Henry Blough of Elizabethtown found out.
On the 17th hole of the Hershey West Golf Course, Henry reluctantly took the advice of a member of his foursome, and exchanged the club that he was going to hit for an Adams Hybrid club. It turned out to be good advice as Henry hit a solid shot that flew about 160 yards, then rolled forward and to the left and dropped in the hole. Henry was excited enough to get the hole-in-one, yet at that point he didn’t even realize what prize was attached to the hole. Henry was playing in the Member/Guest Tournament in which a “hole in one” prize is sponsored annually by Lehman Volvo and Jaguar Harrisburg.
Jaguar Harrisburg had supplied a stunning brand-new 2011 Jaguar XF sports sedan as the big prize, valued at over $50,000. Once he found out that he won the car, Mr. Blough was ecstatic, and in disbelief. The vehicle is now being driven by his wife, Sharon.
“After more than 20 years of providing cars for hole in one contests, we finally gave one away”, says Ray Bromley, Dealer Principal of Jaguar Harrisburg. This was the first time in the organization’s history that a Hole-in-One vehicle prize was actually won.
