Overseas delivery headaches
By Carfan on


2002 Volvo XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Took European delivery this past
summer. I arranged for the car to be
delivered to a dealer other than the
one from which it was purchased. Once
the car finally arrived (EIGHT weeks
later), the dealer (Rickenbaugh,
Denver) was very rude and unhelpful.
Because the car was not purchased at
their dealership, they claimed, taking
delivery of my car was more of a
headache for them than it was worth.
They did not check the car over as
promised by Volvo. Additionally, the
car sustained significant damage in
shipping, and the marine insurance
claimed the damage was regular wear
and tear. Only after many emails they
finally sent me a check.

Best Features

Solid drive, seamless AWD system, comfy seats, good performance for a small five cylinder engine, VERY practical,

Worst Features

Improve finish quality (loose fitting plastic panel parts etc.), light in the driver/passenger doors, buttons instead of knobs on the stereo, more storage space for coins/cards/sunglasses in the car, a compass, Xenon headlamps,
