Re: VOLVO/FORD Increasing production of XC90 (webpj)

I've heard a night shift at Gothenburg factory is supposed to start after the summer (after swedish industry summer ends second or third week of August).<br>

Again? Now what's the annual target?<p>I'm glad to see it but hey, the local dealer has PLENTY available.<p>I'm very satisfied but I wonder if reliability issues (to the extent they really exist), and/or powertrain shortcomings might be to blame.<p>V8 might help but that's a low-volume alternative. Next-gen T6 and/or hybrid would be a big boost. No idea when, however...

This was about increasing production in the fall of 2003. That's more than likely the reason the link doesn't work anymore also.

Re: VOLVO/FORD Increasing production of XC90 (webpj)

Call me selfish but I like being the only one with the XC90 in the area. There doesn't seem to be very many in the greater Pittsburgh area. From what I understand there are three dealerships (actually 2 and one half since I don't consider Star Volvo <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> in Greensburg a complete dealership, IMHO) and each gets 2 maybe 3 XC-90's a month. I figure there have to be about 220 to 250 in the area. I kinda like the status of it all right now, but I am sure I will see more as production continues. I love the vehicle <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emlove.gif" BORDER="0"> even though I only get to drive it on the weekends. My wife drives it most of the time, to work during the week.<p><br>
