My own and my families heartfelt thanks go out to all those Engineers, Designers and Testers involved in the creation of our most cherished Volvo V70 D5 SE Lux Premium MY09. When required every aspect of its safety elements worked perfectly in a 42mph impact, Airbags deployed, Seat Belt Pre-tensioners fired, Whips system prevented any injury for the front passengers, every door opened for exit, etc. etc.
So many invisible and forgotten about elements came into instant operation when needed.
Any modification you make to a car for performance, looks or comfort are insignificant compared to protection and survivability in an impact/crash.
The Volvo is dead,
long live the Volvo...
