Re: Want to give a shout out to PA dealerships! (GrecianVolvo)

I went with Lehman. It's my local dealership.<br>Coming out of a bunch of previous Chrysler Corp. leases/purchases you can probably understand my excitement about being treated right. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>No offense, but the big 3 US automakers' dealerships/sales staff typically leave A LOT to be desired. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

I'm glad those dealers worked out for you. Let me be the first to say avoid performance volvo outside of reading. Unles of course you want your car in there like 10 times to fix the same problem.

Re: (Eric_H)

Official Volvo Policy:<p>'04's & 05's - First 4 services included (up to 30k). Cannot be more than 1,500 miles outside of called for mileage.<p>'06's - only First (7,500 miles) service included. However, this is supposed to include an explanation of all the options that can be customized by Vadis (auto locks, flash on unlock, seat heater, etc.) and all the ones you want changed for free. <p>Us '04 and '05 knuckle draggers get charged for those adjustments. <p>
