UPDATE: So now that I’m off work I want to talk Volvos a little. The brand is important to me because for the first 12 years of my life my mother drove me around in a Volvo. It’s also why several years ago I purchased a cheap 855T and spent 3 times as much to keep it running until Mother Nature ate wiring harnesses via years of harsh environments and road salt. Live and learn.

Anyway, since I can’t afford the new design models of 2017-2019, I got to wondering when their 241hp Drive-E 4 cylinder turbo with Aisin 8sp A/T first came to market. Turns out it was MY2015. And boy are there some bargains out there for cars that get as much as 26 city/38 hwy.

Listed at $11k...hood is a little off, huh?

241hp not enough? Step up to a T6 model with 300 turbo and supercharged horses starting around just $17k

ATACAMA!!! Best part: you only loose 2-3mpg from a T5 model.

Classy, understated, luxury, safety — all in a package that can hold its own with Mercedes and Audi. And relatively inexpensive used.

I wanted to talk about Volvos today but I haven’t had the time. So until then, have a kickass weekend, Oppo...just like this cat!
