On a long weekend a lot of drivers are so anxious to get out to those country breezes that they throw all caution to the wind. Because they're less it may pay for you to be a little more cautious. By driving a for instance. The Volvo body is so strong we've stacked seven Volvos on top of one another without crushing the one on the bottom. What gives Volvo this strength are the six steel pillars surrounding the passenger compartment and the thousands of spot welds holding the body together. The trunk and engine compartments are designed differently. They crumple on impact at a pre-measured rate to absorb a collision before it reaches the passenger compartment. On the steel anti-intrusion bars protect the passengers from lateral impact. And in front and hydraulic shock absorbers on the bumpers absorb low-speed collisions. But Volvo doesn't just protect you from other It can keep you from becoming other Disc brakes are designed to resist even after repeated panic stops. So Volvo has disc brakes on all four wheels. And Volvo doesn't stop there. It has a braking system with two independent setsxtf three-wheel disc brakes. If one set the other still gives you about ITn C1B CTDCCT COUTH of your braking power. Of driver fatigue can be just as dangerous as mechanical failure. So Volvo comes with bucket seats that let you concentrate on the road instead of the pain in your back. The seat-backs are infinitely adjustable with a special adjustment that allows them to be made firmer or softer. And since you really can't concentrate what's ahead of you when you're worried about what's behind Volvo has a rear window defroster. As well as rear door locks that children can't open from inside. So when making plans for a long maybe you should plan on buying a Volvo. There's nothing like being prepared for the holidays.
