My Volvo wasn't like that... It was a very good car, but the Volvo S60 Polestar is pure sex.

We had a 2005 Volvo. Piece of crap. Best thing that ever happened to it was when my wife totalled it.

Volvo is Chinese now, right? I'm sure their cars are crappier than ever.

Volvo is currently owned by an Indian company. They are not made in China or India.

I stand corrected. I was thinking Jaguar. ( »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar_Cars )

Geely wants to make Volvo-branded cars in China something Volvo (but not the Chinese state) has agreed to

As of 2011, two Volvo making plants were planned - one each in the cities of Daqing and Chengdu

A car that can do that track 7 seconds faster than that Audi and Merc? is phenomenal.

I must say while I know they do make some fast cars, First thing to my mind when I hear Volvo is ugly boxy station wagons that are usually very safe in a crash.

Last night my wife said to me, "You think we should get a Volvo." I said "I heard they are Chinese now." (thank you dslr) She was like what!? Forget it.
