We Believe in What We Sell



What you're looking at is a smashed Volvo 760 that saved the life of our Sales Manager Brad Smith long before he began working for Lehman Volvo in York. He was still in college when a drunk driver swerved into the opposite lane of traffic, resulting in a direct head-on crash with Brad's trusty Volvo.

It was a high speed impact that left a twisted wreckage...but this Volvo did its job, sacrificing itself with various crumple zones and high strength steel. Brad's road to recovery took a long time, but he is a firm believer in the brand to this day.

We have also had countless customer stories of Volvos saving lives as well, so we know that "safety" is certainly at the core of what Volvo does. Find your own image of safety at Lehman Volvo in York WWW.LEHMANVOLVOYORK.COM or Lehman Volvo in Mechanicsburg WWW.LEHMANVOLVO.COM

A Decade and a Half of Elegance and Open Air Fun



2013 marks a bittersweet era for fans of the Volvo C70. This is the last year for the hard-top convertible and the end of a journey that began in 1998. It was that year that the sleek and sexy first generation Volvo C70 hit the road. Much like its predecessor, the P1800, the C70 had the unique job of changing perceptions of what a Volvo could be.



The C70 was unveiled first as an elegant coupe, and later as on open-air convertible. The convertible proved to be the more popular variant, as it carried on several years after the coupe ended production.

In 2006, the second generation C70 landed and it was an instant hit. Combining the elegant looks of a coupe and the function of a convertible, it was the first four seat 3 piece hardtop convertible on the market. With room for 4 and an impressive list of safety features (one of the only convertibles ever to be named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS), it also carried on the practical side of Volvo...but in a fun to drive convertible. It was the best of both worlds.



It has been a successful run, but all good things must come to an end. Perhaps there will be another Volvo convertible in the future, but only time will tell. Until then, claim your future collectible Volvo C70 during the Summer Sales event at Lehman Volvo.

60 Years of Volvo Wagons


Time flies when you’re making family trips, hauling cargo, and running errands. July marks the 60th anniversary of the first Volvo wagon.
Introduced in July of 1953, the Volvo Duett would plant the seeds of Volvo as the “wagon master”. The original Volvo wagon, The Duett became a legend in its own lifetime and is today one of the most popular and sought-after Volvos by collectors and enthusiasts. It was a real workhorse, standing up to almost anything and seemed to last forever.
 
In the 1960s the Volvo wagon took on a shape that can be traced to the XC70 of today. With broad shoulders, very useable cargo space and the handling of a sedan, the Volvo Amazon wagon brought the space of a larger vehicle to a smaller car that was very easy to drive. That trend continued with the 140 and 240 series. The last 240 wagon was produced in 1993.
 
 
The 80s and 90s saw Volvo flex their sport muscle with the turbo-charged 700 and 850 series. In fact, Volvo even took the 850 wagon racing in the very popular British Touring Car Championship. In 1998 Volvo redefined the wagon once again with the all-wheel-drive Cross Country. Often referred to as the original luxury crossover, the Cross Country was replaced by the XC70.
Next year will see Volvo redefine the wagon once again. Coming in early 2014, the Volvo V60 is a return to Volvo’s sporty side with the versatility that only a true Volvo wagon can provide. This is the Volvo wagon worth waiting for. Stay tuned to  Lehman Volvo Mechancsburg or Lehman Volvo York for more information.
