Volvo, you see, was my college sweetheart. At $53,655, she will tomobile was birthed always be a bargain, speaking of this week'a test Volvo. My college Volvo was the most reliable car I have ever driven oth- er than the BMW that saved my life (regular readers by now can recite the stories from memory). I appreciate loyalty in cars, horses, and... Now, lest I give you the impression my test drive Volvo was birthed in Bejing, I should list her peditgree: U.S. Canada parts 1%; Begium 30%; Sweden 20%; The engine parts came from Sweden and this quite excellent au- in Ghent, Belgium, with transmission parts from Japan. Welcome to the glob- al economy. Spacious enough to accomodate big Swedes from Stockholm, it is loaded wih safety de- vices to keep occupants safe, regardless of age or size. Its 20 mpg. city driving/ 27 highway averages 22 mpg of ba- sically luxury driving with a leather interi- or, 8-way power front seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, pow- er operated tailgate, 40/20/40 fold-flat seat- ing, power roof with sunshade.

He commented on the fa- miliarity of the solid feel of the new Volvo, and really, everything about the sedan. Base price on my test drive Volvo is $46,350, bumped up to $53,855 with the addi- tion of options packag- es: "Inscription," "pre- ferred," "Cllimate & Child Booster Seats," and "Advanced." The Volvo will cost you $1,900 per year in fuel costs, which I pre- dict you will happily pay. As a Dad, I recom- mend this vehicle be- cause it screams safe- ty, dependability, and a lifetime of service.
