    crash test, Volvo is yellow

    On the crash test (side) at 70kmh Volvo didn't get an excellent score. The Audi A4 and the Malibu are green (excellent) Volvo is yello (not bad)

    My advice, try a face to face ;)

    Swedish things sometimes can be not only annoying but also dangerous. I really think Volvo should recall the 2003-2004 XC70 equipped with Xenon.

    Vns

    I agree, the VNS is not that bad... but outdated. Of course no other Navigation system can be so well integrated with the car. The new garmin units (1000$ CAD) are far more useful, better coverage...
