Number 1 Again...and again, and again and again...

When it comes to Certified Warranty Coverage, Volvo is hard to beat. In fact, over the past seven years Volvo has been impossible to beat.
Intellichoice has announced for the 7th year in a row that Volvo has been awarded as having the best Certified Pre-Owned program in the luxury segment. It’s easy to understand why. Here’s why every Certified Pre-Owned Volvo offers outstanding value and amazing coverage:

1. 7-year/100,000-mile exclusionary CPO warranty*
The Volvo factory-backed CPO warranty fully covers every part not specifically excluded: including the replacement or repair of thousands of components, systems and operations. You can also purchase additional coverage equal to 8-years/100,000 miles or 8-years/125,000 miles.
2. NO deductible for CPO warranty visits
That's right….you won't pay a dime for service visits covered by the CPO warranty.
3. Volvo Certified Comprehensive Inspection
Vehicles are examined and road tested at more than 130 different points and components are repaired or replaced as needed. We check the exterior and powertrain, and even road test each vehicle.

4. Volvo On Call Roadside Assistance™
For even greater peace of mind, Volvo On Call offers these benefits for the length of the CPO warranty: free emergency roadside and towing service 24/7/365, trip routing map services, $5,000 car theft protection award, discounted car rental rates, and trip interruption coverage for a breakdown or traffic accident related to the CPO warranty that occurs more than 150 miles from home.

5. CARFAX Buyback Guarantee
Every Volvo CPO vehicle is covered by the CARFAX Buyback Guarantee. We run a CARFAX Vehicle History Report to ensure that the vehicle has a clean title and that its odometer reading is accurate. If a severe problem title** reported by a DMV is later discovered, CARFAX will buy back the vehicle from you.

6. Volvo Genuine Service
To keep your Volvo performing smoothly long after other cars would have given up, we offer: factory-trained technicians (including mobile technicians at participating retailers), expert inspection/evaluation, fixing the car right the first time, Volvo diagnostic equipment and special tools, and genuine Volvo parts carrying a 12-month warranty.

7. Strict eligibility rules
It takes a special kind of Volvo to even be eligible for our CPO program: it must be the current model year or no more than 6 years old, its mileage must be 80,000 miles or fewer, it must have a "clean" CARFAX Vehicle History Report, and it must be reconditioned to meet all Volvo Certified Comprehensive Inspection standards.

8. Higher standards
Every CPO vehicle is reconditioned to meet Volvo's safety, performance and appearance standards according to our comprehensive 130+ point inspection. And, each vehicle is covered by a solid CPO warranty.

9. Award-winning value
The Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Program has been ranked among the top three in the luxury segment by an independent automotive information company every year since 2001.

10. Protection Plus+
Now, you have the option to add Protection Plus+ to your Certified Pre-Owned Volvo. The Protection Plus+ Program covers your vehicle's Factory Scheduled Maintenance (FSM) for 7 years or 100,000 miles, offering you a lower total cost of ownership and peace of mind.

Plus, you can opt for extended protection for your Certified Pre-Owned Volvo which includes extended protection of your Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Coverage out to 8 years and up to 125,000 miles.

Sneaky peak of the latest Volvo Concept Car

Volvo unveiled two very sleek concept cars this year (a Concept Coupe and Coupe XC) and they are about to round it out with a third...and it looks like they may have saved the best for last.

Rumored to be an Estate Concept, this vehicle shares a lot of dna with the famous P1800ES Shooting brake (a term for a long 2 door wagon).

You will be able to see the whole thing in March at the Geneva Auto Show.

20 Years of Front Wheel Drive Volvo Wagons

It's hard to believe...but front wheel drive Volvo wagons have been around for over 20 years. It was the 1994 850 wagon that would kick things off. A stunning and versatile design, even the Italian motor press would praise the styling of the 850 wagon.

The 850 wagon also proved to be faster and handle better than any Volvo wagon before it. And unlike previous Volvo wagons, the 850 was nimble in all weather conditions. It paved the way for other front wheel drive Volvo wagons that would be smaller (V40 and V50) and larger (V70 and XC70).

The spirit of the 850 wagon is very much alive and well in the new 2015 Volvo V60. And, like the 850, it overshadows previous Volvo wagons both in handling and performance. In addition, it also outshines all other previous Volvo wagons with exceptional fuel economy (How about 37 miles per gallon highway and 29 miles per gallon average?). The future of front wheel drive Volvo wagons is bright indeed.

Snow, Snow, Snow...and more SNOW. Thank goodness for Volvo AWD

What you see above is some professional driving in, believe it or not, REAR-Wheel-drive Volvos. Yes, that's all that Volvo made for most of it's existence. In fact, it wasn't until 1992 that drivers in the United States were introduced to front-wheel-drive Volvos (other markets in the world got front wheel drive in the 400 series Volvos introduced in the 1980s).

Thankfully the move to all-wheel-drive was not as long a shift as the rear to front drive era. It was only five years after the debut of the FWD Volvo 850 that all-wheel-drive Volvos became available. In the US, the Cross Country coupled all-season performance with classic Volvo utility.

Since then the entire Volvo line-up has made been made available in all-wheel-drive (from the Sporty S60 sedan to the top of the line XC90 SUV).

So you don't have to be a professional rally racer to make sure your Volvo goes from point A to point B in the snow. Stay safe out there.
