All Wheel Drive...An All-Season Need

You wouldn't know it from looking outside, but it has been spring for almost a week already. For those with Volvo All-Wheel-Drive (or front wheel drive with good tires), there is no sweat in today's travels.

Since Volvos are designed and built in Sweden, the engineers recognize these cars have to perform in all four seasons, regardless of when it snows or rains. But Volvo AWD performance benefits you in more than just messy weather. Power gets sent to the wheels that need it, whether that means going up hill, driving over wet leaves, or getting up to speed on dry pavement. Also, when you don't need it, your Volvo will remain mostly in front wheel drive in order to keep your fuel consumption low. This all happens seamlessly, without the need of pushing a button. Its such a smooth operation that you probably wouldn't be able to detect if you have 2 wheels or 4 wheels providing the power. So an all-wheel-drive Volvo provides the best of both worlds...even if it happens to snow in spring.

To find your All-Wheel-Drive or Front-Wheel-Drive Volvo, check out our complete inventory in York at www.lehmanvolvoyork.com or Lehman Volvo in Mechanicsburg at www.lehmanvolvo.com

Adding Up the Value: Volvo Overseas Delivery

Lehman Volvo has been doing a lot of Overseas Delivery sales over the years, and it's easy to see why. For those not familiar with the program, the Volvo Overseas Delivery program is a chance to order your new Volvo and "pick it up" in Europe, where you will get a VIP tour of the factory, a hotel stay, travel arrangements and more.

When people hear about the program, of course they are excited with the unique experience...but then the first question that we usually hear is "how much extra do I have to pay?". When we tell them the trip is free and there are no additional fees that's when we get the blank stares. Yes, it does sound "too good to be true", but it is legit...and everyone that we have sold an OSD Volvo to simply raves about the program.



In addition to the free airfare and hotel stay, you will also save money on the vehicle you purchase (up to 9.6% off MSRP). So let's say you want to do an Overseas Delivery trip on a 2013 Volvo S60...here is the added value you will get...

Free Airfare for 2, including all connecting flights (currently a value of over $2,500)
Free Hotel night stay in Gothenburg (value of $200)
Free Registration and Insurance for your new Volvo up to 14 days in Europe
(value of $800 over same time period for a basic rental car in Sweden)
OSD Pricing on your new Volvo S60 (savings of $1,375)
Volvo Factory Tour (Priceless!)

Total value...$4,875+

It might sound "too good to be true", but it is truly a reality and the BEST way to order your new Volvo.

Over Half a Decade of Watching Your Blind Spot


Time flies when you're savings lives. In 2007, Volvo introduced a revolutionary safety feature called BLIS, which appropriately stands for Blind Spot Information System. The system warns you on either the left or right side (or both sides!) with a subtle amber light if an object is in your blind spot. Needless to say, this active safety feature has prevented countless accidents.




As traffic continues to increase it is very important to have an extra "set of eyes" looking out for you on the road. If only such technology was available on humans...



The next generation of BLIS technology is right around the corner, providing an even greater warning system for the Volvo driver who wants to ensure they don't end up too close to other vehicles on the road. As Volvo safety technology evolves it's hard to imagine what new and unique features will be available years from now.

Safety....PLUS


The majority of the public knows that Volvo makes safe cars. That has been established for decades, even before the federal government used the old Volvo 240 as the benchmark vehicle in crash-test standards. But while everyone else has been trying to catch up with Volvo, they keep moving the bar.
Case in point....the 2013 Volvo XC60 has just received the IIHS Top Safety Pick PLUS.

This new test includes an offset crash that is closer to real-life scenarios. With this new award Volvo is the ONLY car company with multiple vehicles winning the new category of Top Safety Pick PLUS. In fact, the XC60 is the first and only luxury crossover to win this prestigious award. So, does Volvo still set the bar for safety? The IIHS says yes...plus.
