Dont know if they still do the extended unaccompanied programme any longer.

It was excellent though, the test drive and the car ... nothing fell off and it didnt breakdown once ... oh and no salesman breathing coffee and fag breath at you.

Enjoy and lets know how it went.
Yep thats the way to go Truckbusuk, Jeez some people have a quick trip round the corner and decide there and then, moan afterwards once the car is bought crazy.

I'm fortunate I have quite a few close links to a few Main dealers and they are quite good at giving me cars for at least 24 hours.

I hate going for a test drive with a salesman especially those that know nothing about the car.

I'm quite hard on a car in test drives

Nice motor the XC90 you thought about Volvo before you got your latest Espace ?

Yep will defo keep you updated Truckbusuk
