what does it take to kill a volvo

Swedish Automotive and our customers love their Volvo’s for the safety, security and longevity they provide and many of our customers own the same Volvo today that they brought to us when we opened in 1983. Volvo’s have long had a reputation of being safe and reliable cars and their durability is tank-like. Indestructible and withstanding whatever is thrown at them (or vice versa), these cars have a reputation for lasting forever and everyone know it. It is probably not a surprise learn that someone asked the question: “I wonder what it would take to kill a Volvo” and then acted on it. An online search found that many people have tried. For entertainment purposes only, here is a video of an 850 wagon put to that very test by a junkyard in a very thorough way. No trying this at home!
