Hi all--this is my first post to the board, I picked up my '02XC 2 weeks ago and so far everything is great! I've enjoyed browsing the board as well, great resource.<P>In one of the other forums, I read something about V70s being held in port for a tailgate upgrade--can someone tell me what the upgrade is and, if it is something worthwhile, whether I can bring my XC in to the dealer to have it done? Thanks,<P>AK

Welcome to Swedespeed. I hope you enjoy your new XC. If you happen to be free Saturday, check out info in our Events and Gatherings forum for a Show & Shine at Annapolis Volvo in Annapolis, MD. There are several owners from the Baltimore Washington area who'll be there who frequent this website.

I am awaiting delivery of a new V70 T5 coming from the factory in Sweden. As I understand it, a new lot of V70's left the factory for various destinations in North America (and perhaps elsewhere). When they arrived at their port-of-entry, Volvo decided to hold onto these cars and make some fixes to the rear tailgate seal, to correct something that was improper coming from the factory. There has been a bit of a delay in releasing these cars, and them getting to their owners, because Volvo was having some delay in getting the part from the Swedish supplier.<P>Bottom line is that if you already have your car this doesn't apply to you. If you are awaiting delivery of a car that has been delayed, it may apply, but will be remedied by the time you get the car.<P>Mike
