The marketing wizards here in Canada want to differentiate the T6 from the 2.5T so they are opting not to offer it on the 2.5T. What a bunch of #%$#@!<P>Pat<P><P>

I have a stupid question for you. When you SAY XC70 and XC90 to your customers, do you say "XC70/90" or do you say "Cross County 70/90" ? ? ? Is one more appropriate or correct than the other, or are they used interchangeably?<P>(And P.S. I'm glad they finally agreed to put leather steering wheels & shift knobs on the base 2.4 S60. The inability to get leather, even with leather seats, was one of my pet peeves on the '02 model's ordering restrictions!)

Actually if you go to the Canadian Volvo site and use the car configurator the configurator already says Haldex AWD for the V70AWD.<P>Pat<P>
