When I first saw one a few weeks ago, approaching from behind on the A1, I first thought it was some awful over-sized Korean clone. The rear is truly 'unfinished' and should not have been signed-off. Any of the three German designers would be laughing. By contrast the other 90-series rear ends look rather attractive !

Just ordered a new S90 momentum D4 auto on contract hire. 270 per month,7000 miles per year, 18 months contract. 1080 up front. Thought it was a good deal. What do people think.

Hope it works out for you, I couldn't justify that sort of commitment myself, I do 15k plus pa, local environment breaks something on the car every other month, car gets hit by something just as often, they'd take it off me...

Made in China

I'd have to see one in a few years to see if it has lasted or as with everything made in china its just superficially good and will very quickly wear out and fail really quickly

I think Volvo's reputation for long lasting toughness will end very quick indeed

So that's 22 monthly rentals - is that plus VAT ? Just watch any mileage over the contracted 10500 and reconditioning costs at contract end.

Slightly odd contract period though.

Jon.

N.B in addition S90s began to arrive from Daqing (Northern China) to Zeebrugge in June, this move frees capacity in Sweden for the XC90, V90 and the new generation XC60. This makes Volvo the first Western automaker to export premium vehicles from China - cars are transported by rail from the Chinese plant to the port.

No that is inclusive of vat. I have never done more than 7000 miles per year,regards reconditioning, 18 months should be ok.

I saw an S90 in a Volvo dealer in Stockport, recently, and the panel fit on the front was dreadful, looked like a bad accident repair, and this was the one on show in the showroom (obviously, where else?).
I posted on here, at the time, saying I hope that is not the shape (or out of shape) of things to come.

For a 50K+ car, I would expect much better fit. My beaten up V70 still has shutlines to be proud of, and my 940 did, until it was squashed by a BMW.

Yeah, the price is kind of too big considering its quality imo. My friend from DSRLeasing actually did mention it a while back.
