Three Reasons NOT to Buy a Volvo


When you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned vehicle, it’s easy to become frustrated with the competing advertisements for each brand. If you could take each salesman at his word, you would be led to believe that his car is the safest, quickest, most economical, and best value of all cars available in the world. But you know better than that. While every car may have its positive attributes, only a few can be the best in its class. With that in mind, consider three reasons why you should not buy a Volvo.
If you don’t care about safety ...

The founders of Volvo stated, “Cars are driven by people. Therefore, the guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo is — and must remain — safety.” That motto is still enacted and is evidenced by the numerous "safety firsts" and the constant high safety rankings given to Volvo by the IIHS and various other safety institutes. If, however, you aren’t concerned about being protected during an accident, any other car will do.

If you don’t care about comfort ...

Someone has said that the world’s most comfortable seats are found in a Volvo. You’ll find that to be true whether you are traveling one mile or a thousand. Volvo has teamed up with chiropractic doctors to find the perfect posture for their seats. That means that you don’t have to stop as often during long trips. But, if you would rather save a little money and have to visit the chiropractor on a regular basis, any other car will do.

If you don’t care about longevity ...

Have you heard about Irv Gordon’s world record? He has driven his Volvo over 2.6 million miles! While all Volvos may not last quite that long, statistics say that the average lifespan for a Volvo is 18½ years. That’s quite an accomplishment for any car. But if you would rather drive a car that you will need to replace in a few years, any other car will do.

The truth of the matter is that most people are interested in safety. They want to protect themselves and those who ride with them. Most people are also interested in a comfortable ride. They like feeling refreshed when they leave their car after a long drive. And most people are interested in longevity. They don’t want a car that falls apart after the first few years. And if you are one of the “most people,” perhaps you ought to consider buying a Volvo. If you require the safest, most comfortable, and one of the longest lasting cars in the industry, you will be satisfied with nothing less than a Volvo.
