Volvo Was Sold

Recommended Posts

BMW would make my day, Renault a little less, but I could rely on patriotic pride to accept that move. Hyunday: I'd leave a note to let people know where to find my body.

If Hyundai buys Volvo, why will anybody care? We will still own the Pre-Ford Volvo's anyways, let alone Pre-Hyundai...

I heard that GM was buying Volvo. That way they can rebadge an S60 as a new Pontiac/Buick/Chevy... and give Volvos crappy interiors. Then they'll put the Ecotech engines in Volvos, and the new XC90 will be a Chevy Blazer with new badges.

And I bet some of you think that I'm kidding!

We're monkeyed unless it goes to BMW. New s80R with an m5 engine in it?!?! :o

That would be sick!

Not to mention RWD Volvos would be reborn.

So not only can I say I drive a pre-ford, I can say I drive a pre-whoever buys out volvo.

Honestly though, I will run screaming if Hyundai or however you spell em buys.

or gm. Volvos across the world will have peeling paint! and what once was known as being a very reliable car....well...I somehow doubt you'd see a hyundai OR GM volvo with as many clicks on it as mine.

Hey guys, it's not speculation anymore...

What is still specualtion is who. I have mixed feelings about BMW and Renault both, simply because I am not really a fan of Nissan. In BMWs case I do not see at all how Volvo would fit under their corporate umbrella. BMWs compete with Volvo (at least in theory) and it just wouldn't shake down well I don't think. I am not really a fan of the Hyundai notion either, simply because it's Hyundai. I know they are improving by leaps and bounds all the time it seems, but still.

Volvo Penta...that would be cool.
