The Wheels Complete the Car!

Sometimes you just have to "dress up" your Volvo. Visually, the best way to do that is by changing your wheels. Of course we are biased, but Volvo has some of the most appealing wheel designs in the industry. From the original "Virgo" alloy wheel on the 240 Turbo, to the "Volan" on the 850R, to the latest 20 inch "Talitha" wheel on the XC60, the styles have been unique.

To demonstrate, check out the Volvo S80 below...sure, the standard wheel is understated and elegant, but switch to the sportier wheel, or the larger and sportier wheel, and the character of the car seems to change. It may seem simple, but the wheels do complete the car!

From Concept to...Concept

When a new Volvo is unveiled to the public, it represents a lot of effort from the conceptual, planing and research stage. Some concepts are better than others, and some never see the light of day. What starts as a sketch, or  a computer drawing sometimes never makes it past a full-scale model. These cars are not a total waste however, as a lot of the technology in your car comes from some of these vehicles.

Volvo celebrates some of their concepts in their museum in Gothenburg, Sweden. From the 1950s Philip concept, to the Volvo 263 (a hatchback 200 series), to the Volvo 480 Cabriolet, to the Volvo YCC (Your Concept Car) that was designed by an all-women team.

There have been a wide variety of Volvo concepts over the years that were not ready for prime time, but have introduced important safety features to the Volvo you are driving today. So although there are some Volvo concepts that never make it to production stage, they still provide value to those who purchase a production Volvo.

Refreshing the Volvo Line-up

Volvo has often been seen as a company who eases into design changes. That was certainly the case in the 70's and 80's, when the small line-up rarely went through any major styling updates. Well, that is no longer the case, as evidenced by a sweeping change throughout nearly the entire line-up! For model year 2014 the list of updates includes the S60, XC60, XC70 and S80!
Of course, the changes go beyond skin deep (or should we say, sheet metal deep?). More features, enhanced safety technology, and improved interiors will all be part of the change. Here is a little sneak peek of the new look...

Volvos: You Can't Own Just One

Chances are if you've owned one Volvo, you've owned at least another one. In our experience, Volvos become generational and passed down into the family. It's the reason why finding a nice OLD pre-owned Volvo can sometimes be a challenge. They just keep running, and passed down, and keep running...and passed down again. Just ask our million-mile customer Selden Cooper, who plans to pass his 1987 Volvo 240 down to his children, although it has over 1 million miles! And of course, it was not his first Volvo. Selden purchased a new Volvo 164 in 1975 and traded it in when it was still a baby (it had over 250,000 miles when he traded it on his 240).
It doesn't surprise us that these cars have such a long life, and that our customers keep buying them!

Drive Something Presidential Today

Everyone at Lehman Volvo would like to wish you a Happy Presidents' day. This is a very special day for us as we just uncovered a rare document in which our first President claims his love for Volvo. It doesn't come as a total surprise though, as a Volvo has some important traits that all leaders should take to heart.
First, a Volvo is safe. National security is of the utmost importance, and in order to due your duty, you must be protected AND protect your loved ones. Second, a Volvo features high quality material, and high quality is definitely something you want in your president. And third, a Volvo is more about substance than flash (although the flash is certainly more apparent these days), and also...value.
