About Volvo. Volvos are considered to be one of the safest and most reliable vehicles available. As a manufacturer, Volvo’s product line is diversified and includes airplanes, automobiles, buses (including hybrid buses for city transit systems), fuel-efficient construction equipment, marine engines, and trucks. Because of cross-industry experience and technology transference, the tradition of durability and heritage of excellence extend throughout the Volvo line of products, which means a volvo automobile has the aerodynamics of an airplane, the water imperviousness of a marine engine, the durability of a truck designed for long-haul cross country transportation, and the strength of industrial construction machinery, all in a vehicle designed to meet the wants and needs of consumers.
Sales. Anyone seeking to purchase a Volvo in the Iowa City area will likely want to visit Whitedog Volvo and Import Sales. They offer a wide range of previously owned vehicles – allowing the buyer to enjoy owning an import vehicle without paying for a new vehicle. As with any dealership, the cost of a new vehicle may be slightly higher than a for-sale-by-owner vehicle.
Service. Whitedog Volvo and Import Service can typically offer more detailed and comprehensive diagnostics, estimates, and repairs because of their specialized experience in working on Volvo vehicles and other imports.
Cost of Ownership. Those unfamiliar with Volvo ownership, should be aware that, just as with any vehicle, an older used car will likely have components failing due to expected wear – regardless of the brand. Because Volvos typically include many enhancements, features, luxuries, and safety technologies not found in economy cars, there are potentially more things that could need servicing, maintenance, repair, or replacement.
Purchasing Tips. When purchasing any used car, it’s a good idea to have it fully inspected to determine what cosmetic and functional repairs may need to be done and what the cost of those repairs might be.
