An audio alert and message that tells the driver to take a break? Yes, the alert and message is part of the Driver Alert Control (DAC) system on the new V70. Supposedly, erratic driving is the trigger. I think the Volvo's in Thailand will have to have this feature turned off. The message will be going off all the time. Read more about new features in the V70 here.

Here's a picture of half the Volvo dealership in Bangkok. Sorry, the car I was in was moving too fast to get a picture of the whole building, maybe next time. A few times I've walked by and checked out the cars on display. I guess the C30's haven't made it to Thailand yet because there were none. I sure do miss my car.

Good luck finding this much open road in Bangkok. The audience is probably more amazed at the sight of only one car. The 240 sounds like it's going to explode. Although, it's not any louder than the average tuk-tuk.
