A Ride Better Than the Rest: Riley Volvo Cars Stamford

This post is sponsored by Riley Volvo Cars Stamford, but the opinions are my own. Please support our sponsors.

My car is my true home. I probably spend more time in it than anywhere else, especially these days, driving to school, hockey, baseball, the grocery store, and the gym, to start!

I’ve only owned three cars in my life, and I don’t consider myself a car aficionado. I have always said my car is just a way to get from point A to point B. Then, I had the opportunity to test drive the Volvo XC90 from Riley Volvo Cars Stamford. I had never driven one before this, and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

WOW, this car is no mom-mobile! It’s an amazing luxury car that still keeps you safe. I was smitten from the moment I sat in the driver’s seat! The XC90 is a car like no other. I fell more in love with how smooth it felt on the road, and my family enjoyed it for all the comfort it provided. 

Some of my favorite features were the heated steering wheel, amazing radio, built-in navigation, and automatic adjusting driver seat. I was blown away by how easy it was to pair my iPhone with the car and the Blind Spot Monitor. My husband also loved the radio, and my boys couldn’t get enough of the sunroof and heated back seats.

My friends, especially my mom friends, couldn’t get over how this car was so good-looking and still functional. They were all green with envy when I took them for a quick spin, and they experienced all the Volvo had to offer.

Even though my boys are older (6 and 10), car seats are still a big factor for us. The latch system was available in the second row of seats, and the anchor was available on all four rear seats. There’s even an option to have a built-in booster seat. I especially loved how the car monitors when the child locks are in use or if someone is unbuckled.

Volvo has taken into account everything a family needs in a car. The technology is innovative, the design is fresh, the safety features are above standard, and the car can even help you reduce your carbon footprint! 

The next time I’m in the market for a new (or new to me) car, I will definitely be finding my way back down to Riley Volvo Cars Stamford and suggest you do the same. Jameson and AJ run the family-owned business. They are kind, honest, caring, and dedicated to keeping drivers safe and happy. You won’t regret the stop there, and you might leave with the best car you never knew you needed!

Maria is a full-time mom, teacher, wife, daughter, and sister, who feels pulled in too many directions! Her older son Michael took over 24 hours to be born, and at six-months-old was diagnosed with allergies to dairy, eggs, nuts, soy, shrimp, and wheat…all after exclusively nursing because she was SO SURE that would help him be a healthy kid. Luckily at age 1, he began to outgrow some of his allergies. Fingers crossed the others will soon follow because that plus a husband who doesn’t eat any veggies and Maria always battling her weight makes for three meals to prepare every night. Luckily, Christopher, her younger son, is a cooperative eater! As someone who has always been committed to making positive change, Maria uses her privilege and position as an educator and mom to work toward a most anti-racisit, equitibile, and inclusive world. Recently, Maria has even started getting up at 5am to workout in her basement. (Thank you pandemic living!) She is addicted to reading chicklit on her Kindle app in the dark, most Trader Joe’s products, and watching TikToks.
