I had one of these right when they came out. A 2001.5 if you will. It was a great little car all around. Comfortable, 5 speed, leather, power moonroof, and tons of cargo space (I've moved some surprising things in the back of that car) I made a mistake trading it in on a new car (then again, it was getting up there in… » 1/28/15 8:23pm Yesterday 8:23pm

I would agree that the model isn't necessarily wrong...just implemented poorly.

Bad move. Thousand of people, a great many of whom are actually looking to buy cars, attend auto shows. If you aren't represented, especially if you are such a boutique and frankly marginal brand such as Volvo, people won't even remember you exist. I'm sure a great many of the slack-jawed suburban dwellers think that… » 1/23/15 9:14pm Friday 9:14pm

This has been around for quite a while, and it is effective. And by cheap, it is just cheaper than actually having to dig up the slab, stabilize the soil, fill, and then pour a new slab. I can be less expensive if the sunken slab isn't off level by too much to pour a coat of self-leveling concrete over the existing… » 1/22/15 8:47pm 1/22/15 8:47pm
