Volvo Was Sold

Recommended Posts

hmm...so to his knowledge they are not in negotiations with anyone.

currently.

still, this came from somewhere, it has to be a thought in some peoples minds.

Any thing will be better then Ford , Hyandia has the best warrenty 20 years 200,000 miles :)

Renualt would be sweet also but I think BMW would be a bad move as chuck said it would be the bastard car of there group.

Just no more domestic owners they all make junk cars.

Who cares? This effects none of us lol and I doubt many of you would look into another Volvo for performance.

for repairs/dealers and replacement parts it makes a difference.

I could live with Renault.

I'd like to see AB Volvo buy back Volvo Cars. They sold it for 6.45B back in 98. They are in a very good position to buy it at the rumored price of 8B. Considering how weak the dollar is now vs the Kronor and the Euro, it would be virtually the same as the sold it for. Renault would have the same advantage.

Only thing with that though is that AB Volvo bought Renault's heavy truck division and Mack Trucks in 01. They seem to be focusing on commercial trucks and probably have no interest in the car business.

I've decided at this point I don't even care as long as it isn't Hyundai (or something similar...Kia or something).

YES, I know they'd pump good money into Volvo, but I just don't know if I could stand the "cheap-o foreign car" stigma.

i think that Volkswagen should buy volvo!

i thought hyundai had a 10year/100k mile warranty? did they change it to 20year/200k miles? that is incredible.

I would prefer the wallenberg family to buy volvo back so it is a true swedish company once again.

Yea, I dont know what would be better, BMW or the Swedes.

The Pre-ford Volvos were pretty damn reliable. I never had any major problems with my 850 R.

Well going back to Swedish roots, how about the guy who owns Ikea and was once (but briefly) the world's richest man?

Maybe he'll sell Volvos in knock down kits you can assemble in your own garage. I bet many of you guys are just gonna love the idea.

This is awesome!

If GM was to get Volvo you guys rest assured that I'd make sure they don't screw it up. At the very least I would know what to tell HR since they sent me an e-mail asking which part of the company I would like to work for.

BMW... I know a guy.

Hyundai... I say we group buy it back

VW... Meh...

Kind of ironic too since one of my coworkers asked about a possible Volvo sale today in the parking lot...

they won't sell it, it makes ford too much money. Land Rover/Jaguar would be sold eons before Volvo.
