Welcome to Swedespeed.com's Volvo News Blog. We're breaking new ground here, and are going to take a different approach to Volvo news with this forum. Rather than just printing all the news releases we can get our hands on, and bolstering that with our editorial coverage, we wanted to go one step further. To that end, this forum will be used to track Volvo News from around the web, print magazines and anywhere else we find it. <p>So what will you see in here? We'll summarize news we find elsewhere and link you to it if we find it on the web. So yes, this means we'll be sending you to our competitors too. <p>What is news? For now, we've come up with this list...<p>- Road Tests and Reviews by Legitimate News Sources - If a magazine, website or other source review a Volvo or compare a Volvo to other vehicles, we want our readers to be on top of how our favorite brand is performing. You'll find links and or references to that here.<p>- Rumors by Legitimate News Sources - Rumors are rumors, no matter how legitimate the source or if they're backed up with a slick computer-generated image or a grainy spy photo. We'll list it here, and give our best guess as to accuracy if we have a guess. We've tended to stay away from rumors in the past, only focusing on things we know as fact. In this case, we'll give credit for the rumor where credit is due - the source. That can be good or bad, but it's our intent that our readers be up on the rumors too.<p>- Cool Feature Cars - There are some great cars out there that we'll never get around to featuring. Enthusiast magazines such as European Car, Eurotuner, VCOA's Rolling and the like are great at finding them, while other websites are good for some once in a while too. If they feature it, it's our intent to let you know and link you there if possible.<p>- Anything else pertinent to Volvo owners - Consider this the catch-all. If it looks interesting and we haven't run a full news piece on the front page, we'll post it here as well, in the grandest BLOG sense. <p>For now, Swedespeed will leave this forum closed to the creation of new topics but open to replies. It's our intent to leave the actual topic creation to our staff and our moderators. If you see something you think should be covered, you can either email it to [email protected] or create a thread in the Volvo News forum and draw our attention to it. If we agree that it should be included, we'll be happy to move it into the Blog. Even better, if you prove yourself a real Eagle Eye on finding news, we'd be happy to consider you as a contributor to the Blog and set you up with the ability to post in here.<p>Please feel free to post any comments or suggestions in response to this topic.<br>

Re: Welcome to the Volvo News Blog! ([email protected])

Thanks guys. We've been playing with the formula over on Fourtitude for Audi news found here....<p><A HREF="http://forums.fourtitude.com/zeroforum?id=764" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.fourtitude.com/zeroforum?id=764</A><p>It seems to work well. We'll be putting the title links on the front page of the site as we have on Fourtitude as well. Expect that in the next few days.

Re: Welcome to the Volvo News Blog! (miata13)

damn. I grabbed most of the text from Fourtitude. Looks like I missed two instances of the Audi name. Fixed. Thanks. (Sheepish)

Re: Welcome to the Volvo News Blog! (universityvolvoOSD)

Thanks, I'm hoping it evolves like the one on Fourtitude has. It's a nice place to check in and catch what's going on... even the weird stuff. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Welcome to the Volvo News Blog! ([email protected])

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">Hello, I am new to the R Market. I have had two 850's before and after a brief leave of absence have come back to Volvo. I bought a S60R 6 speed in July, it was right off lease and had been serviced at a certified Volvo dealer before I bought it. I recently had the ABS light and Brake failure light come on as well as the Service maintenance required soon come on. I took it to the Volvo dealer and they told me that I needed a new Brake control module and new software for the car. As the R's have certain quirks I wanted to check with everyone to see if this is a common problem or if I should get a second opinion. Thanks
