2010 Volvo XC60: Scuffed Interior Trim
November 23, 2009
I like our 2010 Volvo XC60's classy-looking interior. But I was disappointed today to see that we've picked up some scuff marks on the metallic trim near the shifter. As is the case with pretty much any car's metallic trim in the Volvo's price range, it's not actually metal but rather painted plastic. No big deal -- normally, it looks fine. But Volvo runs the trim along the center stack's edges all the way down to where the shifter and cupholders are. And in this high-traffic area, there's a good chance that the trim's paint is going to get scratched if something hard drags or rubs against it.
