    Couldn't pay me to own a Volvo, so I give no ****s.

    As for this being a harbinger of things to come, sure it'll happen eventually, but not any time soon.

    Ha, dont get it twisted. They will sill be making ICE engines, they will just be hybrid, but they are serious on moving to electric. China is pushing all of this, and Geely (China company) owns Volvo so yeah.

    Volvo is doing really well actually. Not competitive to the Germans but they continue to break their own records. Go check out the new XC90 and the interior. Those cars can top $90k.

    Volvo has the nicest interior of any car right now (aside from Rollers and the super high end stuff).

    I think a lot of their new offerings are really attractive as well.

    I think right now it is the Volvos and the Lincoln Continental that are considered to be the nicest right now.

    The new Navigator would be included. Forgot those are out now. I should hopefully be seeing those and the 2018 Expeditions soon.

    I haven't sat in one, but they look amazing in photos. A used one looks like a great replacement for my wife's explorer in the future.

    It is based on browser history, e-mails and purchases. Your phone likely has a hot mic too that apps like facebook collects info and directs appropriate ads to you.

    the next time it showed LMR, which makes much more sense. What the hell would I have been looking at that would want me to check into KY? It's my work computer, so no PORN. My browser history should be SVTP, SRTHC, craigslist auto. WTH.
