$1,000 is a nice deal IMHO for accessories! http://********************/smile/emthup.gifquote:
I am writing to congratulate you on your order of a new Volvo XC90 and to provide to you an update of this highly anticipated new Volvo. We are committed to achieving the highest quality of any European luxury vehicle manufacturer and as such, are taking extra care to ensure that the XC90 meets our industry leading standards. This commitment, in concert with unprecedented worldwide demand, has impacted the arrival date of the XC90 and as a result the delivery of your new vehicle will be delayed until early 2003.
We understand the inconvenience this delay may present for your day-to-day transportation requirements and would like to offer you $1000 toward the purchase of genuine Volvo accessories to personalize your new XC90. This special offer is exclusive to XC90 presale customers. While precise timing is not currently available, your sales representative from Volvo of Oakville will contact you in the near future to provide you with a new delivery date and further details.
Volvo remains faithful to our core values of safety, environmental care and quality. Our models are unique, stylish and functional, and none more than the XC90 - a small reminder of which we have included in this package [the model car]. When your XC90 finds its way home in the New Year, I know you will not be disappointed.
Should you have any questions, please contact your sales representative at Volvo of Oakville to discuss in detail. Again, thank you for your business.
President and CEO
