Volvo is is predicted to exit the U.S. Car Market in 2014. Will you miss it?
24/7Wall Street has forecast 10 brands they expect to go out of business (at least in the U.S.) in 2014. Volvo and it's safe, but boxy cars are on the list. So is J.C.Penney, Martha Stewart's Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, The Barns & Noble Nook, and Mitsubishi cars. Also on the list, sadly, is the WNBA. The ladies of the National Basketball League play hard and are highly skilled - but attendance is very low.
No. I am a Ford man myself, but even then, I still don't like Volvo as a vehicle.
Yes I will miss them. I had a Volvo Amazon and I loved it.
The people that drive Volvos are a breed unto themselves. They are super safety conscious and expect value for money. Also for the second hand market, the cars were always well maintained by their owners.
I didn't know the others were in decline. Thanks for letting me know.
I will miss the Volvo if it goes. The first two cars I owned were Volvos, and the first of those saved my life.
It's time for Volvo to go the way of Yugo. I'm a die-hard American made girl. Raised in Buick City. I love American cars, but now that I've been married to a German for 10 years, I love them too. Give me the premium editions: Caddy, BMW and my Ford Escape Hybrid and the rest can "toot-toot" away.
Volvo has a very strong business in the U.S and they have never claimed they were leaving, so thats garbage. Who ever told you that is clearly not playing with a full deck. People have been buying volvos for almost an entire century, I doubt they will shut down their business tomorrow just because some no name site says so.
I hope you are right dj. But the facts do not support your claim that they have a strong position in the market. Since being dropped by Ford, Volvo has come under Chinese ownership and sales there are booming but in the U.S. the decline is huge.
Won't matter to me. I've never been a fan and don't care.
But interestingly the single car with the highest mileage of all time was just announced last week; a Volvo P1800 (the only model I ever liked) hit 3 million miles.
