    Care By Volvo Has Some Hiccups, But Starting To Get on Track

      You doing ok Volvo?

    Care By Volvo is a very intriguing option for buyers. For just $600 or $700 month, you can get into XC40 with insurance, maintenance, replacement of wear items, telematics-based concierge service. The subscription lasts 24 months and provides a yearly allowance of 15,000 miles, along with the option to swap into a new model after 12 months.

    But Roadshow reports that Volvo had some issues with getting Care By Volvo up and running. Readers tell the outlet they have been waiting on their vehicles with barely any updates coming from Volvo. Forum and Reddit posts are expressing the same thing with some reporting hold-ups due to paperwork. 

    There is some good news for those who ordered a vehicle through Care By Volvo. 

    "The first round of paperwork has gone out to several customers and we are on track to deliver the first Care by Volvo cars before month [May] end," said Volvo spokesman Jim Nichols.

    Volvo did not reply to Roadshow's inquiries into how many people have signed up for the program, how many XC40s have been delivered, or how many people are still waiting for their vehicles. We may have an answer to the first inquiry thanks to a Reddit poster who wrote this,


    I contacted an agent via CBV chat today to inquire about lead times for new orders and got the following response:

    Due to the high demands for the XC40 Care By Volvo subscription, if you were to place your XC40 Care By Volvo order now [5/25], deliveries are expected early 2019.

    While Volvo is still ironing out the various issues with Care, they are planning to add the new V60 and upcoming S60 in the near future.

    I wonder if this favors poor drivers with bad history for insurance costs? After all I have to think that at least $100 a month is covering insurance so that is $1,200 a year which I think is very high compared to private insurance. Then you also have maintenance, say another $50 a month so about $600 a year leaving you about $450 for the cost of the XC40 per month.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out in comparison to leasing or buying.

    Mazda unveils the Iconic SP concept

    At the 2023 Tokyo auto show, Mazda unveiled a sports car concept. Originally named Vision Study Model, the Iconic SP, utilizes an interesting engine combination.
