The One-Point Car Turn

It was one of my first test drives; to say I was a little nervous may be an understatement.

Everything was going well when the customer asked me if we could go into the parking lot ahead. I said with trepidation, sure, what for? He wanted to test out the turning radius. I had no idea why anyone would test the turning radius of a car.

It was one of the best test drives, as I learned that the Volvo turns on a dime! Forget about a three-point turn, just turning the wheel all the way made a one-point turn!

Almost eleven months later since that test drive I watched a Volvo XC90, (Very large SUV), make a one-point turn. I found myself smiling.

Did my teacher of the Volvo fabulous tuning radius buy the car? Of course!

Try it!
