Well that shows that you shouldn't go jumping your XC60 offroad whilst towing a horsebox.

Whenever buying a Volvo Selekt, ex demo or "management car" always put the registration in a google image search. It will show the car in any publication it may have been tested.

Seriously disappointed with Volvo. So it means now I cannot make jumps as I like? Common, Volvo, you can do better than Italians.

Damn.

Ok so obviously not real world scenarios but still, a Volvo (no, make that 2 Volvos) being less robust than an Alfa Romeo?

How times change.
