Sweet gesture, but there is nothing wrong with Rav4s! Maybe the newer models haven’t held up to the standard of the odler models but I had one and that thing was like some kind of miracle machine.

Smart to wait a little while, though. That’s a lot of big money being moved around! Congrats on TTC!

What an amazing gesture… you have a very sweet Hubby-2B

I literally went huh, when I read your post… wondering what the “fine print” (loop hole) was in regards to this program

So I went over to the Volvo Website…

And HOLY CRAP !! It is 100% true…

Return Airfare – Hotel – Pick Up Car (that you can even have customized) – Tour the Plant / Museum – help with Licensing / Insurance for the “vacation” portion of your trip etc.  AND they ship the car home to you in the USA.

You’d think that there would be a significant cost to this Buy In Europe option, but in fact the website says prices are generally 7% LOWER than if the car was bought in the USA

The only stipulation is that you must drive the car around Europe for 2 or 6 months (no other choices) and that it must be dropped off by arrangement to specific locations for that time-frame so the shipping to the USA can be completed.

I may have to remember this for the future, when Mr TTR & I are planning to visit Europe after we retire.

Thanks !!!

I have had a VW and a BMW both picked up in Germany. It’s a neat program. We’ve always timed it with a long european vacation and just used the car as a “rental car” while we were there.
