Yesterday I saw a Volvo-loving comment stuck with Viagra and other assorted nasties in my Junk Comments folder.
Hate-mail from a Volvo S40 fan in my inbox!!
You obviously have no idea what you are talking about.
Well, I feel that I do, actually. And so does the guy that drove the car. That’s why he wrote what he wrote.
I have never driven a better car than a Volvo.
You’re probably young. There’s still time.
Maybe your dad beats the crap out of his and that’s why it sucks, but at least he probably has a warranty.
Actually, my Dad passed away over 20 years ago and in the fifteen years that we shared on this earth, he only drove Fords. Whilst Ford own Volvo nowadays, I don’t think that’s enough of a link for you to draw here. (UPDATE: It seems she (yes, she) was talking about Jeff’s Dad. Jeff did the offending review).
If anyone else has a Saab Vs Volvo review, please do send them in. It’s all in fun.

The man with the scary green briefcase, Saab GB chief Jonathon Nash, is poised to become the head of Hummer, Corvette and Cadillac as well.
GM made the same move here in Australia a little while ago, appointing the Saab Oz head honcho, Parveen Batish, as Grand Poobah of a new division called GM Premium.
From Inside Line:
If you’re like me and you also love Alfas, check out the effort that a tuning company called Lester has made with the Brera, which was delicious to begin with.
A little while ago, I had a little snark-attack at Saab Oz for offering an aftermarket navigation unit as part of it’s 60th Anniversary promotion here in Australia.
This article at Autoblog is making me have second thoughts.
How’s this – you pay a nearly ten percent premium to get a factory navigation system in your new whatever, and when it’s replacement time, that very same nav system will cost you again, whacking 1% off the car’s resale price….
It seems that some second-hand buyers are actually turning up their noses at first-generation nav units when they look for their cars.
The argument here is that inbuilt systems can date and with the evolution of technology they may even become obsolete, leaving you with a big nav-screen that’s somewhat useless and quite a detraction from your car’s supposed functionality. In addition, the aftermarket units are usually much cheaper than factory units.
My initial snark was based around an add-on being offered in a 60th Anniversary offering by Saab Oz and it seemed a little inauthentic for that purpose. I’m big enough and ugly enough to force a re-think in my own mind on this one, though, and perhaps some Nav-enthusiasts might consider the same when it comes to Saab’s offerings.
Is it better to have a more functional, portable unit that the owner can purchase at his/her own discretion based on need? Perhaps it is.
I was supposed to be driving a BMW 335i Convertible this afternoon, but my appointment has been bumped to Saturday as Tony had a hot prospect that wanted my time slot. Who am I to stand in the way of another BMW sale?
This is the twin-turbo BMW engine that they released last year, and just yesterday it won the coveted International Engine of the Year award.
