Not for me, but there are new wheels in the RPM household. It’s not the most exciting vehicle in the world, but boy is it comfortable and safe, and I like the looks of it too. And goddamn, those Volvo seats are comfy. Those who will be driving it are suitably excited. And I am excited because CPO: it is a 2017 with under 10,000 miles on it, and has a CPO warranty for a total of 7 years and 100,000 miles. It is exactly as pictured below: a 2017 XC60 T5 Dynamic, AWD, with all the safety bells and whistles. It’s not what I would buy for myself but for the former Mrs. RPM and RPM Jr. to use, especially since we’ll all be driving over mountain passes a lot more in the next few years, I’m pretty happy about it. You can hate crossovers all you like but they’re certainly practical, and while ordinarily I’d prefer a wagon, the rear area of the V60 isn’t tall enough to put our two large dogs in comfortably.

Pretty good dealer experience too, I have to say.
