Interesting article. thanks for the post. I have had a T6 now since Jan 99 and it has been great. I have about 38K on it and the only problem I had was a tranny problem at 6K. Tranny replace, problem resolved. The car goes back soon to dealer for lease is up. I just got a new Benz but I still have a 940SE and a 00 S70 in the stable.

It does have some faults but who doesn't?<P>Yannis<P><P>

He have one here and I have been playing with the TV ect. I am having a problem with the DVD...it says the DVD is for the wrong region? not so... I have beeen playing it on my portible and home DVD's w/o a problem. I do like the fact that the sound will go through the regular audio system. Also, we have alot of people that like to listen to our local TV news through the audio system, this allows that too.<P>As far as rear leg room being 2" greater... I personally didn't notice a difference there.<P><P>

If you made it yourself then that could be the problem as Volvo audio systems many times do not recognize homemade CD-ROMS and/or DVDs due to the way one records the files.<P>I think that the EXEC is overpriced; the Elite Edition is definitely worth it and you save a lot of $$$ for not having just a DVD player a fax and the fridge (puhleez!).<P>Yannis<P>
