More Polestar, More Power

The list of available Volvos with Polestar performance upgrades has increased....Check it out!

Expanding on its recent announcement of performance packages for certain models with T5 engines, Volvo Cars of North America (VCNA) today announced factory-authorized performance tuning software for several additional Volvo models will be available next week at Volvo retailers across the country.

The next wave of Polestar performance software packages will be available for 2011-2012 XC60, S60 and XC70 fitted with a T6 engine. The T6 performance software package carries an MSRP of $1,495 installed and goes on sale nationwide Dec. 5.

The T6 Polestar software package adds 25 horsepower and 30 lb.-ft. of torque, bringing the three carlines to 325 horsepower and 355 lb.-ft. of torque. Equally impressive is that the added power does not affect fuel consumption, as the efficient tuning of the engine only increases the power output when it is needed.

"Just a few weeks after announcing the performance package for select T5 models, we have already received tremendous feedback from our customers," said Chris Dauerer, VCNA's vice president of customer service. "With Polestar, we are able to deliver our performance-minded customers the enhanced driving package they have been looking for now across a variety of our carlines."

Currently, the Polestar performance software package is also available for the following carlines:

* XC60 T6 R-Design (MY2011-2012)
* C30 T5 (MY2008-2012)
* C70 T5 (MY2008-2012)
* S40 T5 (MY2008-2011)

The Gift that keeps on Saving

Once again its the season of Holiday car commercials...they are everywhere. Most of them (we won't name names) show the buyer presenting someone with a shiny new luxury car as a gift. If only we were all that lucky. We have a Holiday message that speaks more to the core value of Volvo...Protect the gifts you already have. What it means is that instead of focusing on countless gifts, wouldn't it be nice to consider your family's safety? The fact that every new Volvo comes with a nice list of standard features, unique Scandinavian design, and No-charge maintenance is just a bonus. Find your Holiday sleigh at Lehman Volvo in York or Lehman Volvo in Mechanicsburg.

Black Friday-mobiles

Everyone is no w in a holiday rush to get the greatest deals...but once you have them, how do you fit everything in your car? If you have a Volvo crossover, SUV, or problem! In fact there is 72.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the XC70. It might not look like it from the outside, but this vehicle is LARGE inside...all the better to swallow all the best deals. Drive safely...and find your cargo hauler in York or Mechanicsburg.

My Life With a Volvo XC90

OK, so I am a longtime Volvo owner...starting with a Volvo 240 DL, then a Volvo 850GLT, and currently a Volvo S60 T5. Each model was certainly an evolution over the previous model, growing more comfortable, and with more luxury features. The most important thing though, was that they all had that tangible Volvo quality and safety (which thankfully I didn't have to experience!).

Looking back at my list of Volvos, the 240 sticks out as an iconic symbol of Volvo's durability and versatility. I'm currently driving a Volvo XC90, and in a lot of ways...its Volvo's modern-day 240. Comfortable, durable....and extremely versatile. The seats alone are a work of genius...folding in 3 seperate sections, adjustable, and the 3rd row folds neatly into the floor. I've never been a really big fan of SUVs, but the XC90 has certainly changed my opinion.

It's easy to see that even after almost a decade in production the XC90 is STILL one of Volvo's highest selling models (another similarity it shares with the 240...although that model was produced for nearly 2 decades!).

With a ton of standard features (leather seating, 3rd row, Satelite radio, Bluetooth etc etc etc), the XC90 also has that classic Volvo trait of value as well.

A Connection of Vets and Volvos

Thanks to all the men and women of this country who have, or who currently are in the armed forces...your service will never be forgotten. Its because of your service that we here at Lehman Volvo have our jobs.

Back in the early 1950s Volvo did not have a presence in the United States. However, service men deployed over seas discovered these unique vehicles and took it upon themselves to ask Volvo to bring some of these cars over. They also brought these cars home themselves.

The rest of the story involves setting up a network of dealerships...and here we are today (that's the extremely short version!). So, thanks to the veterans of this nation for bringing us Volvo...but most importantly, thanks for your dedication and your service.
