Reading the Owner’s Manual
Introduction
A good way of getting to know your new car
is to read the owner’s manual, ideally before
your first journey. This will give you the
opportunity to familiarise yourself with new
functions, to see how best to handle the car
in different situations, and to make the best
use of all the car’s features. Please pay
attention to the safety instructions contained
in the manual.
The equipment described in the owner’s
manual is not present in all cars. In addition
to standard equipment, this manual also

Introduction
Environment
Volvo Cars’ environmental philosophy
Environmental care, safety and quality are
the three core values which influence all
operations of the Volvo Car Corporation. We
also believe that our customers share our
consideration for the environment.
Your Volvo complies with strict international
environmental standards and is also manufactured in one of the cleanest and most
resource-efficient plants in the world. Volvo
Car Corporation has global ISO certification,
which includes the environmental standard
(ISO 14001) covering factories, central functions, as well as several of our other units.
8
We also set requirements for our partners so
that they work systematically with environmental issues.
EPI (Environmental Product Information) is
supplied for all Volvo models. Here you can
see how the car affects the environment during its entire lifecycle.
Read more at www.volvocars.com/EPI
Fuel consumption
Volvo cars have competitive fuel consumption in each of their respective classes.
Lower fuel consumption generally results in
lower emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption. For more information read
under the heading, Reducing environmental impact below.
Efficient emission control
Your Volvo is manufactured following the
concept "Clean inside and out" – a concept
that encompasses a clean interior environment as well as highly efficient emission control. In many cases the exhaust emissions are
well below the applicable standards.
Introduction
Environment
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
A passenger compartment filter prevents
dust and pollen from entering the passenger
compartment via the air intake.
A sophisticated air quality system, IAQS*
(Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the
incoming air is cleaner than the air in the
traffic outside.
The system consists of an electronic sensor
and a carbon filter. The incoming air is monitored continuously and if there is an increase
in the level of certain unhealthy gases such
as carbon monoxide then the air intake is
closed. Such a situation may arise in heavy
traffic, queues and tunnels for example.
The entry of nitrous oxides, ground-level
ozone and hydrocarbons is prevented by the
carbon filter.
Textile standard
The interior of a Volvo is designed to be
pleasant and comfortable, even for people
with contact allergies and for asthma sufferers. Extreme attention has been given to
choosing environmentally-compatible materials. This means that they also fulfil the
requirements in the Öko-Tex 100 standard1,
a major advance towards a healthier passenger compartment environment.
Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts, carpets and fabrics for example. The leather in
1
More information on www.oekotex.com
the upholstery undergoes chromium-free
tanning with natural plant substances and
fulfils the certification requirements.
Volvo workshops and the environment
Regular maintenance creates the conditions
for a long service life with low fuel consumption for your car. In this way you contribute
to a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s
workshops are entrusted with the service
and maintenance of your car, it becomes part
of our system. We make clear demands
regarding the way in which our workshops
are designed in order to prevent spills and
discharges into the environment. Our workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools
required to guarantee good environmental
care.
Reducing environmental impact
You can easily help reduce environmental
impact, for example, by driving economically,
by purchasing eco-labelled car care products and by servicing and maintaining the car
according to the instructions in the owner’s
manual.
The following advice will help you to do your
bit for the environment: (for further advice on
how you can reduce environmental impact
and drive economically, see page 164):
• Decrease fuel consumption by choosing
ECO tyre pressure, see page 215.
• A roof load and ski box increase air resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption.
Remove them directly after use.
• Remove unnecessary items from the car.
The greater the load the higher the fuel
consumption.
• If the car is equipped with an engine block
heater use it for a few hours before starting from cold. This reduces fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
• Drive gently and avoid braking too hard.
• Drive in the highest gear possible. Low
engine speeds result in lower fuel consumption.
• Use engine braking to slow down.
• Avoid letting the engine idle. Pay attention
to local regulations. Switch off the engine
when stationary for longer periods.
• Always dispose of environmentally hazardous waste, such as batteries and oils,
in an environmentally safe manner. If
uncertain about disposal, consult an
authorised Volvo workshop for advice.
• Service your car regularly.
• High speed increases consumption considerably due to increased wind resistance. A doubling of speed increases wind
resistance four times.
These hints will help reduce fuel consumption without increasing travel time or lessening the enjoyment of driving. Apart from
being kind to your car, you’ll be saving
money - and the Earth’s resources.

Always use seatbelts
Releasing the seatbelt
Press the red lock button and then let the
seatbelt retract. If the seatbelt does not retract fully, feed the seatbelt in by hand so
that it does not hang loose.
The seatbelt locks and cannot be withdrawn:
G020995
• if it is pulled out too quickly.
• during braking and acceleration.
• if the car leans heavily.
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure
that all passengers use their seatbelts.
It is important that the seatbelt lies against
the body so it can provide maximum protection. Do not lean the backrest too far back.
The seatbelt is designed to protect in a normal seating position.
Putting on a seatbelt
Pull the seatbelt out slowly and secure it by
pressing the buckle into the lock. A loud
"click" indicates that the seatbelt has locked.
The buckles only fit the intended lock in the
rear seat.1
1 Certain
12
markets
Keep in mind the following:
• do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the seatbelt from fitting properly.
• ensure that the seatbelt is not twisted or
caught on anything.
• the hip strap must be positioned low down
(not over the abdomen).
• tension the hip strap over the lap by
pulling the diagonal shoulder belt as illustrated.
WARNING
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly, this
may diminish the protection provided by the
airbag in the event of a collision.
.
WARNING
Never modify or repair the seatbelts yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop.
If a seatbelt has been subjected to a major
load, such as in conjunction with a collision,
the entire seatbelt must be replaced. Some
of the protective characteristics of the seatbelt may have been lost, even if it appears
to be undamaged. In addition, replace the
seatbelt if the belt is worn or damaged. The
new seatbelt must be type-approved and
intended for installation in the same position
as the replaced seatbelt.

The sensors react differently depending on
the course of the collision and whether or
not the seatbelts on the driver and passenger side are used.
It is therefore possible that only one (or
none) of the airbags may inflate in a collision. The airbag system senses the force of
the collision on the car and adapts accordingly so that one or more airbags is deployed.
The capacity of the airbags is also adapted
to the collision force to which the vehicle is
subjected.

Side airbags, SIPS bags
WARNING
Repairs must only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.
Work on the SIPS system can cause malfunction and result in serious personal
injury.
G020694
WARNING
A large proportion of the collision force is
transferred by the SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) to beams, pillars, the floor, the
roof and other structural parts of the body.
The side airbags at the driver’s and front passenger seats protect the chest area and the
hip and are an important part of the SIPS.
The SIPS bag system consists of two main
components, side airbag and sensors. The
side airbags are located in the front seat
backrests.
20
Do not put objects in the area between the
outside of the seat and the door panel,
since this area is required by the side
airbag.
WARNING
Use only seat covers approved by Volvo.
Other seat covers may impede the operation of the side airbags.
WARNING
Side airbags are a supplement the seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.
Child seats and side airbags
The side airbag does not diminish the protection provided by the car to children seated in
a child seat or on a booster cushion.
A child seat/booster cushion can be placed

Protection against whiplash injury –
WHIPS
The whiplash protection system (WHIPS)
consists of energy absorbing backrests and
specially designed head restraints in the front
seats. The system is actuated by a rear-end
collision, where the angle and speed of the
collision, and the nature of the colliding vehicle all have an influence.
Never hang or attach heavy items onto the
handles in the roof. The hook is only designed for light clothing (not for solid objects such as umbrellas for example).
Do not screw or install anything onto the
car’s headlining, door pillars or side panels.
This could compromise the intended protection. Only ever use Volvo genuine parts
that are approved for placement in these
areas.
WARNING
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always use a seatbelt.
WARNING
Properties of the seat
When the WHIPS system is deployed, the
front seat backrests are lowered backward to
alter the seating position of the driver and
front seat passenger. This reduces the risk of
whiplash injury.
Do not load the car higher than 50 mm
under the top edge of the side windows.
Otherwise, the intended protection of the
inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the
headlining, may be compromised.

try to start the car. If Safety mode is still
shown on the display then the car must not
be driven or towed. Even if the car appears to
be driveable, hidden damage may make the
car impossible to control once moving.
If the car is involved in a collision, the text
Safety mode - See manual may appear on
the information display. This means that the
car has reduced functionality. Safety mode is
a protective state that is enforced when the
collision may have damaged any of the car’s
vital functions, such as the fuel lines, sensors
for one of the safety systems, or the brake
system.
Attempting to start the car
First, check that no fuel is leaking from the
car. There must be no smell of fuel either.
If everything seems normal and you have
checked for indications of fuel leakage, you
may attempt to start the car.
01
WARNING
If the car is in safety mode it must not be
towed. It must be transported to an authorised Volvo workshop.
Moving the car
If Normal mode is shown after Safety mode
has been reset, the car can be moved carefully out of a dangerous position. Do not
move the car further than necessary.
WARNING
Never attempt to repair your car or reset the
electronics yourself if the car has been in
safety mode. This could result in personal
injury or the car not functioning as normal.
Always allow an authorised Volvo workshop
to check and restore the car to normal status after Safety mode has been displayed.
WARNING
Never, under any circumstances, attempt to
restart the car if it smells of fuel when the
Safety mode message is displayed. Leave
the car at once.

Child seats
Location of child seats
You may place:
The position of a child in the car and the
choice of equipment are dictated by the
child’s weight and size, for more information
see page 28.
NOTE
Children of all ages and sizes must always sit
correctly secured in the car. Never allow a
child to sit on the knee of a passenger.
Volvo’s own child safety equipment is designed for your car. Use Volvo genuine
equipment to best ensure that the mounting
points and attachments are correctly positioned and are sufficiently strong.
NOTE
If problems arise when fitting child safety
products, contact the manufacturer for
clearer instructions.

G020739
Regulations regarding the placement of
children in cars vary from country to
country.
Child seats and airbags are not compatible
Volvo has child safety products that are designed for and tested by Volvo.
NOTE
When using child safety products it is important to read the installation instructions
included with the product.
Do not attach the straps for the child seat to
the horizontal adjustment bar, springs, rails
or beams under the seat. Sharp edges can
damage the straps. Allow the back of the
child seat to rest against the dashboard. This
applies to cars without a passenger airbag,
or where the airbag is deactivated.
• a child seat or booster cushion on the
front passenger seat, provided the passenger airbag is not activated.
• a rear-facing child seat in the rear seat that
uses the back of the front seat as support.
Always place a child in the rear seat if the
passenger airbag is activated. A child sitting
on the front passenger seat could suffer serious injury if the airbag deploys.
WARNING
Never place a child in a child seat or on a
booster cushion in the front seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated.
No one shorter than 140 cm should ever sit
in the front passenger seat if the airbag
(SRS) is activated.
Failure to follow the advice given above
could endanger the life of the child.

ISOFIX fixture system for child seats
Size classes
Child seats are in different sizes, and cars are
in different sizes. This means that not all child
seats are suitable for all seats in all car
models.
G021064
Consequently a size classification has been
introduced for child seats using the ISOFIX
fixture system in order to assist users in
choosing the correct child seat (see table below).
Mounting points for the ISOFIX fixture system are concealed behind the lower section
of the rear seat backrest, in the outer seats.
The location of the mounting points is indicated by symbols in the backrest upholstery
(see illustration above).
Press the seat cushion down to access the
mounting points.
NOTE
The ISOFIX fixture system is an accessory
for the passenger seat.
Always follow the manufacturer’s installation
instructions when connecting a child seat to
the ISOFIX mounting points.

Upper mounting points for child seats
For detailed information on how the child
seat should be tensioned in the upper
mounting points, see the seat manufacturer’s
instructions.
Integrated booster cushion*
WARNING
The car is equipped with upper mounting
points for child seats. These mounting points
are located on the parcel shelf and are concealed by plastic covers. Bend aside the
plastic covers to access each respective
mounting point.
Volvo’s integrated booster cushion for the
centre rear seat is specially designed to provide optimum safety for children. Combined
with the regular seatbelt, the booster cushion
is approved for children weighing between
15 and 36 kg. Check before driving that:
For cars with folding head restraints on the
outside seats the head restraints should be
folded to facilitate installation.
• the seatbelt is in contact with the child’s
body and is not slack or twisted
• the seatbelt does not lie across the child’s
throat or below the shoulder (see illustration)
• the lap section of the seatbelt is positioned low over the pelvis to provide optimal protection
• the head restraint is adjusted to suit the
child’s head.
The upper mounting points are primarily intended for use with front-facing child seats.
Volvo recommends that small children
should sit in rear-facing child seats for as
long as possible.

General
For privacy locking, see page 41.
The car is supplied with two remote control
keys or PCCs (Personal Car Communicator).
They are used to start the car and for locking
and unlocking.
The key blades’ unique code is available at
authorised Volvo workshops, who can order
new key blades.
More remote control keys can be ordered –
up to six can be programmed and used for
the same car.
The PCC has increased functionality compared with the remote control key. Only the
remote control key is referred to in the remainder of this chapter when describing
functions available in both the PCC and remote control key.
WARNING
If there are children in the car:
Always remember to switch off the power
supply to locks, power windows and sunroof by removing the remote control key if
the driver leaves the car.
Detachable key blade
A remote control key contains a detachable
metal key blade for mechanical locking/
unlocking of the driver’s door, glovebox and
boot lid (privacy locking).
For key blade functions, see page 40.

If all PCCs are removed from the car and if all
doors are closed then a warning message is
shown in the information display and an
audio reminder signal sounds at the same
time. The message disappears when a PCC
is brought back to the car.
The keyless drive function in the PCC allows
the car to be unlocked, driven and locked
without the need for a key. You simply have
to have the PCC with you. The system makes
it easier and more convenient to open the
car, for example when your hands are full.
The car’s two PCCs incorporate the Keyless
function. Additional PCCs can be ordered.
PCC range
In order to open a door or the boot lid, a PCC
must be no more than approx. 1.5 metres
from the car door handle or boot lid. This
means that the person who wishes to lock or
unlock a door must have the PCC with him or
her. It is not possible to lock or unlock a door
The warning message and audio reminder
signal disappear when the PCC is brought
back to the car after:
• a door has been opened and closed
• the PCC is inserted into the ignition switch
• the READ button has been pressed.
Handling the PCC safely
If a PCC with keyless drive function is left in
the car, it is deactivated temporarily when the
car is locked. This prevents unauthorised
entry.
However, if someone breaks into the car,
opens the door and finds the PCC, it can be
reactivated. It is therefore important to handle all PCCs with equal care.
IMPORTANT
Never leave a PCC behind in the car.

especially if there are children in the car.
WARNING
Never remove the remote control key from
the ignition switch while driving or when the
car is being towed. The steering lock could
be activated which would mean that the car
cannot be steered.
Never remove the remote control key with
the keyless drive* function from the car
while driving or during towing.
NOTE
The idling speed can be noticeably higher
than normal for certain engine types during
cold starting. This is so that the emissions
system can reach normal operating temperature as quickly as possible, which minimises exhaust emissions and protects the
environment1.
1
If D or R position is engaged with automatic
transmission, without the car being driven, then
the engine speed is of course reduced, but at
the same time it takes longer to reach operating
temperature, so the environmental aspect is
offset.
Keyless drive*
Follow steps 2–3 for starting petrol and diesel
engines.
NOTE
One precondition for starting the car is that
the car’s remote control keys with the keyless drive* function are located inside the
passenger compartment or the cargo area.
03 Your driving environment
Starting the engine
Steering lock
The steering lock is deactivated when the
remote control key is inserted into the ignition switch1 and activated when the remote
control key is removed from the ignition
switch.
Activate the steering lock when leaving the
car to reduce the risk of car theft.
Diesel particle filter (DPF)
Diesel cars are equipped with a particle filter,
which results in more efficient emission control. The particles in the exhaust gases are
collected in the filter during normal driving.
So-called "regeneration" is started in order to
burn away the particles and empty the filter.
This requires the engine to have reached normal operating temperature.
Regeneration of the filter takes place automatically at an interval of approximately
300-900 km depending on driving conditions. Regeneration normally takes between
10 and 20 minutes. During this time fuel consumption may increase slightly.
Regeneration in cold weather
If the car is frequently driven short distances
in cold weather then the engine does not
reach normal operating temperature. This
means that regeneration of the diesel particle
filter does not take place and the filter is not
emptied.
1
On cars with Keyless drive* the steering lock
is deactivated when the start button is
pressed in for the first time. The steering lock
is activated when the engine is switched off
and the driver’s door is opened.
Start regeneration of the filter by driving the
car until the engine reaches normal operating
temperature, preferably on a main road or
motorway. The car should then be driven for
approximately 20 minutes more.
When regeneration is complete the warning
text is cleared automatically.
03
Use the parking heater* in cold weather so
that the engine reaches normal operating
temperature more quickly.
IMPORTANT
If the filter fills up with particles then it can
be difficult to start the engine and the filter
will be incapable of functioning. Then there
is a risk that the filter will have to be replaced.
When the filter has become approximately
80 % full of particles, a yellow warning triangle illuminates on the dashboard, and a message is shown, Soot filter full. See manual is
shown on the dashboard display.

5. Open the clips on the front cover of the
battery in your car and remove the
cover, see page 199.
6. Connect the starter cable to the positive
terminal
on the battery in your car,
located under a folding plastic cover.
7. Connect one clamp from the black jump
lead to the donor battery’s negative
terminal
.
8. Connect the other clamp to an earthing
point, (right-hand engine mounting at
the top, the outer screw head)
.
Check that the jump lead clamps are fixed
securely so that there are no sparks during
the starting procedure.
IMPORTANT
Connect the start cable carefully to avoid
short circuits with other components in the
engine compartment.
9. Start the engine of the "donor car". Let
the engine run a few minutes at a speed
slightly higher than idle (1500 rpm).
10.Start the engine of the car with the flat
battery. Do not touch the crocodile clips
during the start procedure. There is a
risk of sparks forming.
11.Remove the jump leads, first the black
and then the red. Make sure that none
of the clamps on the black jump lead
comes into contact with the battery’s
positive terminal or the clamp connected to the red jump lead.
WARNING
The battery can generate oxyhydrogen gas,
which is highly explosive. One spark, which
can be generated if you connect a jump
lead incorrectly, is sufficient to make the
battery explode. The battery contains sulphuric acid, which can cause serious burns.
If the acid comes into contact with eyes,
skin or clothing, flush with large quantities
of water. If acid splashes into the eyes, seek
medical attention immediately.

The information display shows the position of
the gear selector using the following indications: P, R, N, D, S, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6. See
page 60.
Gear positions
Neutral position (N)
No gear is engaged and the engine can be
started. Apply the parking brake if the car is
stationary with the gear selector in
position N.
Drive (D)
D is the normal driving position. Shifting up
and down takes place automatically based
on the level of acceleration and speed. The
car must be stationary when the gear selector is moved to position D from position R.
Geartronic* – Sport mode (S)1
The Sport programme provides sportier
characteristics and allows higher engine
speed for the gears. At the same time it
responds more quickly to acceleration. During active driving, the use of a lower gear is
prioritised, leading to a delayed upshift.
Sport mode is obtained by moving the lever
from D position to the right-hand end position at M. The information display shifts the
indication from D to S.
Sport mode can be selected at any time
while driving.
Parking position (P)
Select P when starting the engine or when
the car is parked. The brake pedal must be
depressed to disengage the gear selector
from the P position.
The gearbox is mechanically blocked when
the P position is engaged. Activate the electric parking brake by pressing the button, see

Gearboxes
Manual gearshift mode is obtained by moving the lever from position D to the right-hand
end position at M. The information display
shifts the indication from D to one of the figures 1-6, depending which gear is engaged
just then, see page 60.
Move the lever forwards towards + (plus) to
change up a gear and release the lever,
which returns to its rest position at M.
Pull the lever back towards – (minus) to
change down a gear and release the lever.
NOTE
If the gearbox has a Sport programme then
the gearbox will only become manual after
the lever has been moved forwards or backwards in its M position. The information display then shifts the indication from S to
show which of the gears 1–6 is engaged.
Kick-down
When the accelerator pedal is pressed all the
way to the floor (beyond the position normally regarded as full acceleration) a lower
gear is immediately engaged. This is known
as kick-down.
When kick-down is activated the car can
change one or more gears at a time depending on engine speed. The car changes up
when the engine reaches its maximum speed
in order to prevent damage to the engine.
03
Mechanical gear selector inhibitor
If the accelerator is released from the kickdown position, the gearbox automatically
changes up.
The manual gearshift mode M can be
selected at any time while driving.
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
To return to automatic driving mode; move
the lever to the left-hand end position at D.
Safety function
To prevent overrevving the engine, the gearbox control program has a protective downshift inhibitor which prevents the kick-down
function.
Geartronic automatically shifts down if the
driver allows the speed to decrease lower
than a level suitable for the selected gear, in
order to avoid jerking and stalling.

03 Your driving environment
All Wheel Drive – AWD (All Wheel Drive)*
All Wheel Drive is always engaged
All Wheel Drive means that the car is driving
on all four wheels at the same time.
The power is automatically distributed
between the front and rear wheels. An electronically controlled clutch system distributes
the power to the wheels that have the best
grip on the current road surface. This provides the best traction and prevents wheel
spin. Under normal driving conditions, the
majority of power is transmitted to the front
wheels.
03
All Wheel Drive improves driving safety in
rain, snow and icy conditions.
95
03 Your driving environment
Foot brake
General
03
The car is equipped with two brake circuits.
If one brake circuit is damaged then this will
mean that the brakes engage at a deeper
level and harder pressure on the pedal is
needed to produce the normal braking effect.
The driver’s brake pedal pressure is reinforced by a brake servo.
WARNING
The brake servo only works when the
engine is running.
If the brake is used when the engine is
switched off then the pedal will feel stiff and
more force must be used to brake the car.
In very hilly terrain or when driving with a
heavy load the brakes can be relieved by
using engine braking. Engine braking is most
efficiently used if the same gear is used
downhill as up.
For more general information on heavy loads
on the car, see page 228.
Anti-lock braking system
The car is equipped with ABS (Anti-lock
Braking System) that prevents the wheels
from locking during braking. This means the
ability to steer is maintained and it is easier to
swerve to avoid a hazard for example. Vibra-
96
tion may be felt in the brake pedal when this
is engaged and this is normal.
After the engine has been started and the car
has reached 20 km/h there is a short automatic test of the ABS system. The test may
be felt as pulses in the brake pedal.
Cleaning the brake discs
Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs
may result in delayed brake function. This
delay is minimised by cleaning the brake
linings.
Manual cleaning is advisable with wet road
surfaces, prior to long-stay parking and after
the car has been washed. Carry this out by
braking gently during a short period while en
route.
Emergency Brake Assistance
Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA) helps to
increase brake force and so reduce braking
distance. The EBA system detects the
driver’s braking style and increases brake
force as necessary. The brake force can be
reinforced up to the level when the ABS system is engaged. The EBA function is interrupted when the pressure on the brake pedal
is reduced.
NOTE
When EBA is activated the brake pedal lowers slightly more than usual, depress (hold)
the brake pedal as long as necessary. If the
brake pedal is released then all braking
ceases.

Climate control
General
Air conditioning
The car is equipped with Electronic Climate
Control (ECC). The climate control system
cools or heats as well as dehumidifies the air
in the passenger compartment.
NOTE
The air conditioning can be switched off,
but to ensure the best possible climate
comfort in the passenger compartment and
to prevent the windows from misting, it
should always be on.
Actual temperature
The temperature you select corresponds to
the physical experience with reference to
factors such as air speed, humidity and solar
radiation in and around the car.
The system includes a sun sensor which
detects the side from which the sun is shining. This means that the temperature can differ between the right and left-hand air vents
despite the controls being set for the same
temperature on both sides.
Sensor location
• The sun sensor is located on the top side
of the dashboard.
• The temperature sensor for the passenger
compartment is located below the climate
control panel.
• The outside temperature sensor is located
on the door mirror.
• The humidity sensor* is located in the
interior rearview mirror.
NOTE
Do not cover or block the sensors with
clothing or other objects.
Side windows and sunroof
To ensure that the air conditioning works
optimally, the side windows, and sunroof if
appropriate, should be closed.
Misting windows
Remove misting on the insides of the windows by primarily using the defroster function.
To reduce the risk of misting, clean the windows with a normal window cleaning agent.
Vents in the parcel shelf
NOTE
To avoid misting, do not block the vents furthest back on the parcel shelf with clothing
or other objects.
Temporary shut-off of the air conditioning
When the engine requires full power, e.g. for
full acceleration or driving uphill with a trailer,
the air conditioning could be temporarily
switched off. There may then be a temporary
increase in temperature.
04
Condensation
In warm weather, condensation from the air
conditioning may drip under the car. This is
normal.
Ice and snow
Remove ice and snow from the climate control system air intake (the grille between the
bonnet and the windscreen).
Fault tracing and repair
Entrust fault tracing and repair of the climate
control system to an authorised Volvo workshop only.

Refrigerant
The climate control system contains R134a
refrigerant. This refrigerant contains no chlorine, which means that it is harmless to the
ozone layer. Have an authorised Volvo workshop carry out the filling/changing of
refrigerant.
04
Total airing function
The function opens/closes all side windows
simultaneously and can be used for example
to quickly air the car during hot weather, see
page 37.
Passenger compartment filter
All air entering the car’s passenger compartment is cleaned with a filter. This must be
replaced at regular intervals. Follow the Volvo
Service Programme for the recommended
replacement intervals. If the car is used in a
severely contaminated environment, it may
be necessary to replace the filter more often.
NOTE
There are different types of passenger compartment filter. Make sure that the correct
filter is fitted.
Clean Zone Interior Package (CZIP)*
This option keeps the passenger compartment clear of allergy and asthma inducing
substances. For more information, see the
Clean Zone Interior brochure included when
the car is purchased. The following is
included:
• An enhanced fan function that means that
the fan starts when the car is opened with
the remote control key. The fan fills the
passenger compartment with fresh air.
The function starts when required and is
disengaged automatically after a time or
when one of the passenger compartment
doors is opened. The time interval during
which the fan blows will be gradually
reduced until the car is four years old.
108
• Interior Air Quality System (IAQS). A fully
automatic system that cleans the air in the
passenger compartment from contaminants such as particles, hydrocarbons,
nitrous oxides and ground-level ozone.
• Use of tested materials in the interior
equipment. The materials have been
developed in order to minimise the quantity of dust in the passenger compartment
and they contribute to making the passenger compartment easier to keep clean.
The carpets in both the passenger compartment and the cargo area are removable and easy to remove and clean. Use
cleaning agents and car care products
recommended by Volvo, see page 220.
NOTE
In cars with the Clean Zone Interior Package the IAQS air filter must be replaced
every 15 000 km or once per year. In cars
without the Clean Zone Interior Package the
IAQS air filter must be replaced at the normal service.

senger compartment is recirculated, i.e. no
outside air is taken into the car when this
function is activated. If the air in the car recirculates for too long, there is a risk of misting
on the insides of the windows.
Timer
With the timer function activated the system
will exit manually activated recirculation
mode according to a time that depends on
the outside temperature. This reduces the
risk of ice, misting and bad air. Activate/

DSTC – Stability and traction control system
The stability and traction control system,
DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control) helps the driver to avoid skidding and
improves the car’s traction.
The system limits the driving and brake force
of the wheels individually so that skidding
can be avoided. This increases manoeuvrability and as a result safety in the event of
sudden movement.
Traction is improved by means of the system
distributing the driving force between the
wheels. The system primarily engages at low
speed on poor road surfaces.
The activation of the system during braking
may be noticed as a throbbing sound. The
car may accelerate slower than expected
when the accelerator pedal is depressed.
Messages in the information display

Controls
Radar sensor
Adaptive cruise control consists of the cruise
control system and coordinated spacing
system.
Adaptive cruise control is not a collision
avoidance system. The driver must intervene if the system does not detect a vehicle
in front.
Adaptive cruise control does not brake for
slow or stationary vehicles.
Do not use the adaptive cruise control, for
example, in city traffic, in dense traffic, at
junctions, on slippery surfaces, with a lot of
water or slush on the road, in heavy rain/
snow, in poor visibility, on winding roads or
on slip roads.
The distance to the vehicle ahead is measured by a radar sensor. The speed is regulated by acceleration and braking. It is normal
for the brakes to emit a low sound when they
are being used by cruise control.
WARNING
The brake pedal moves when the cruise
control brakes. Do not rest your foot under
the brake pedal as it could become
trapped.
The cruise control objective is to follow the
vehicle ahead but in the same lane and at a
set distance. If the radar sensor has not
detected a vehicle ahead then the only
objective is the set speed. This is also the

Cruise control only warns of vehicles detected by the radar sensor. Consequently
there may be no warning or it may be subject to a delay. Do not wait for a warning but
brake when it is necessary.

Adaptive cruise control can only be activated
above 30 km/h. If speed falls below 30 km/h
or if engine speed becomes too slow then
the adaptive cruise control disengages and
stops braking. In which case the driver must
immediately take over and maintain the distance to vehicles in front. The highest speed
setting is 200 km/h. In some situations when
the system cannot be activated Cruise Unavailable is shown in the display, see

The radar sensor and its limitations
The radar sensor is used both by the adaptive cruise control and the collision warning
system. It is designed to detect cars or larger
vehicles driving in the same direction. The
radar sensor does not detect pedestrians, or
oncoming, slow or stationary vehicles,
objects and obstacles. Warnings are not
given and braking is not applied in such
cases.
Modification of the radar sensor could result
in it being illegal to use.
WARNING
Accessories or other objects must not be
installed in front of the grille.
The capacity of the radar sensor to detect
vehicles in front is reduced significantly:
• if the radar sensor becomes blocked and
cannot detect other vehicles e.g. in heavy
rain or slush, or if other objects have
collected in front of the radar sensor.
NOTE
Keep the surface in front of the radar sensor
clean.
• if the speed of vehicles in front is significantly different from your own speed.

from being detected by BLIS.
Daylight and darkness
In daylight the system reacts to the shape of
the surrounding vehicles. The system is
designed to detect motor vehicles such as
cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles.
the vehicles. This means for example that the
system does not react to a trailer without
headlamps which is towed behind a car or
truck.
WARNING
The system does not react to bicycles or
mopeds.
The BLIS cameras can be disrupted by intensive light or when driving in the dark
when there are no light sources (e.g. street
lighting or other vehicles). The system may
then interpret the lack of light as if the cameras have been blocked.
In both cases a message is shown in the information display.
When driving in such conditions system
performance may be temporarily deteriorate and a text message is shown, see
page 144. If the message disappears automatically then BLIS has returned to normal
functionality.
The BLIS cameras have limitations similar
to the human eye, i.e. they "see" worse in
heavy snowfall or thick fog for example.

In darkness the system reacts to the headlamps of surrounding vehicles. If the headlamps of surrounding vehicles are not
switched on then the system does not detect

Recommendations during driving
General
Economical driving
Economical driving and reducing environmental impact result from driving gently with
anticipation and adapting your driving style
and speed to the current situation (for further
advice on how you can reduce environmental
impact, see page 9).
05
• Do not let the engine idle, but drive at light
loads as soon as it is possible.
• A cold engine consumes more fuel than a
warm one.
• Do not drive with unnecessary loads in the
car.
• Do not use winter tyres when the roads
are dry.
• Remove the load carrier when it is not in
use.
• Use the parking heater* in cold weather so
that the engine reaches its normal operating temperature more quickly.
Driving in water
The car can be driven through water at a
maximum depth of 25 cm at a maximum
speed of 10 km/h. Extra caution should be
exercised when passing through flowing
water.
164
During driving in water, maintain a low speed
and do not stop the car. When the water has
been passed, depress the brake pedal lightly
and check that full brake function is
achieved. Water and mud for example can
make the brake linings wet resulting in
delayed brake function.
Clean the electric contacts of the electric
engine block heater and trailer coupling after
driving in water and mud.
Do not let the car stand with water over the
sills for any long period of time. This could
cause electrical malfunctions.
IMPORTANT
Engine damage can occur if water enters
the air filter.
In depths greater than 25 cm, water could
enter the transmission. This reduces the lubricating ability of the oils and shortens the
service life of the systems.
In the event of engine stop in water do not
try restart. Tow the car from the water.
Engine and cooling system
Under special conditions, for example when
driving in hilly terrain, extreme heat or with
heavy loads, there is a risk that the engine
and cooling system will overheat. Proceed as
follows to avoid overheating the engine.
• Maintain a low speed when driving with a
trailer up long, steep ascents.
• Do not turn the engine off immediately you
stop after a hard drive.
NOTE
It is normal for the engine’s cooling fan to
operate for a while after the engine has
been switched off.
• Remove any auxiliary lamps from in front
of the grille when driving in extreme high
temperatures.
• Do not exceed engine speeds of 4500 rpm
(3500 rpm for diesel engines) if driving
with a trailer or caravan in hilly terrain. The
oil temperature could become too high.
05 During your journey
Recommendations during driving
Open boot lid
Avoid driving with the boot lid open. If it is
however necessary, only drive for a short distance. Close all windows, set the air distribution to the windscreen and floor and run the
fan at the highest speed.
WARNING
Do not drive with the boot lid open. Toxic
exhaust fumes can be drawn into the car
through the cargo area.
Do not overload the battery
The electrical functions in the car load the
battery to varying degrees. Avoid using the
ignition position II when the engine is
switched off. Use ignition position I instead,
as less power is consumed.
Also, be aware of different accessories that
load the electrical system. Do not use functions which use a lot of power when the
engine is switched off. Examples of functions
that use a lot of power:
• ventilation fan
• windscreen wipers
• audio system (high volume)
• parking lamps
If the battery voltage is low, a message
appears on the information display. The
energy-saving function shuts down certain
functions or reduces certain functions such
as the ventilation fan and audio system.
Charge the battery by starting the engine.
Before a long journey
• Check that the engine is working normally
and that fuel consumption is normal.
• Make sure that there are no leaks (fuel, oil
or other fluid).
• Check all bulbs and tyre tread depths.
• Carrying a warning triangle is a legal
requirement in certain countries.
05
165
05 During your journey
Recommendations during driving
Winter driving
Check the following in particular before the
cold season:
05
• The engine coolant must contain at least
50 % glycol. This mixture protects the
engine down to approximately –35 °C. To
achieve optimum antifreeze protection,
different types of glycol must not be
mixed.
• The fuel tank must be kept filled to prevent
condensation.
• Engine oil viscosity is important. Oils with
lower viscosity (thinner oils) facilitate starting in cold weather and also reduce fuel
consumption while the engine is cold. For
more information on suitable oils, see
page 228.
IMPORTANT
Low viscosity oil must not be used for hard
driving or in hot weather.
• The condition of the battery and charge
level must be inspected. Cold weather
places great demands on the battery and
its capacity is reduced by the cold.
• Use washer fluid to avoid ice forming in

05 During your journey
Fuel
General
Diesel
Fuel of a lower quality than that recommended by Volvo must not be used as
engine power and fuel consumption is negatively affected.
Diesel must fulfil the EN 590 or JIS K2204
standards. Diesel engines are sensitive to
contaminants, such as excessively high volumes of sulphur particles for example. Only
use diesel fuel from well-known producers.
Never use diesel of dubious quality.
WARNING
05
Fuel which spills onto the ground can be
ignited.
Switch off the fuel-driven heater before
starting to refuel.
Never carry an activated mobile phone
when refuelling. The ring signal could cause
spark build-up and ignite petrol fumes,
leading to fire and injury.
NOTE
Extreme weather conditions, driving with a
trailer or driving at high altitudes in combination with fuel grade are factors that could
affect the car’s performance.
At low temperatures (–40 °C to –6 °C), a paraffin precipitate may form in the diesel fuel,
which can lead to ignition problems. Special
diesel fuel designed for low temperatures
around freezing point is available from the
major oil companies. This fuel is less viscous
at low temperatures and reduces the risk of
paraffin precipitate.
The risk of condensation in the fuel tank is
reduced if the tank is kept well filled. When
refuelling, check that the area around the fuel
filler pipe is clean. Avoid spilling fuel onto the
paintwork. Wash off any spillage with detergent and water.
IMPORTANT
Only ever use fuel that fulfils the European
diesel standard.
168
IMPORTANT
Diesel type fuels which must not be used:
special additives, Marine Diesel Fuel, fuel
oil, RME1 (Rape Methyl Ester) and vegetable oil. These fuels do not fulfil the requirements in accordance with Volvo
recommendations and generate increased
wear and engine damage that is not covered by the Volvo warranty.
1Diesel fuel may contain a certain amount of
RME, but further amounts must not be added.
IMPORTANT
For model year 2006 or later the sulphur
content must be a maximum of 50 ppm.
Empty tank
No special procedures are required if the
tank runs dry. The fuel system is bled automatically if the ignition switch is kept in position II for approx. 60 seconds before the start
attempt.
Draining condensation from the fuel
filter
The fuel filter separates condensation from
the fuel. Condensation can disrupt engine
operation.
05 During your journey
Fuel
The fuel filter must be drained at the intervals
specified in the Service and Warranty Booklet or if you suspect that the car has been
filled with contaminated fuel.
IMPORTANT
Certain special additives remove the water
separation in the fuel filter.
Petrol
Petrol must meet the EN 228 standard. Most
engines can be run with octane ratings of 95
and 98 RON. 91 RON should only be used in
exceptional cases.
• 95 RON can be used for normal driving.
• 98 RON is recommended for optimum
performance and minimum fuel consumption.
When driving in temperatures above +38 ºC,
fuel with the highest possible octane rating is
recommended for optimum performance and
fuel economy.
IMPORTANT
Always refuel with unleaded petrol so as not
to damage the catalytic converter. In order
that Volvo’s warranty shall remain valid,
never mix alcohol with petrol, as the fuel
system could be damaged. Do not use
additives not recommended by Volvo.
nel walls are lined with a thin layer of platinum, rhodium and palladium. These metals
act as catalysts, i.e. they participate in and
accelerate a chemical reaction without being
used up themselves.
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve
fuel economy.
An oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the engine.
This value is fed into an electronic system
that continuously controls the injectors. The
ratio of fuel to air directed to the engine is
continuously adjusted. These adjustments
create optimal conditions for efficient combustion, and together with the three-way catalytic converter reduce harmful emissions
(hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrous
oxides).
05
Catalytic converters
The catalytic converters are designed to
purify exhaust gases. They are located close
to the engine in order to quickly reach operating temperature.
The catalytic converters consist of a monolith

Volvo uses different systems for warning of
low oil level or low oil pressure. Certain variants have an oil pressure sensor, and then
the lamp for oil pressure is used. Other variants have an oil level sensor, and then the
driver is informed via the warning symbol in
the centre of the instrument unit as well as by
display texts. Certain models have both variants. Contact a Volvo dealer for more information.
G021734
Checking the oil level in a new car is especially important before the first scheduled oil
change.
Petrol engine
The most accurate measurements are made
on a cold engine before starting. The measurement will be inaccurate if taken immediately after the engine is switched off. The dipstick will indicate that the level is too low
because the oil has not had time to flow
down into the oil sump.
Diesel engine
Change in accordance with the intervals
specified in the Service and Warranty
Booklet.
G021737
06
IMPORTANT
When filling oil to top up, the oil being filled
must be of the same grade, see page 228.
G021736
In order to fulfil the requirements for the
engine’s service intervals all engines are
filled with a specially adapted synthetic
engine oil at the factory. The choice of oil
has been made very carefully with regard to
service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact. An
approved engine oil must be used in order
that the recommended service intervals can
be applied. Only use a prescribed grade of
oil (see the engine compartment decal) for
both filling and oil change, otherwise you
will risk affecting service life, starting characteristics, fuel consumption and environmental impact. Volvo Car Corporation
disclaims all warranty liability if engine oil of
the prescribed grade and viscosity is not
used.
The oil level must be within the area marked on
the dipstick.
06 Maintenance and specifications
Engine compartment
Checking with a cold engine
1. Wipe the dipstick clean.
2. Check the level using the dipstick. It
must be between the MIN and MAX
marks.
3. If the level is close to the MIN mark,
start by topping up with 0.5 litres of oil.
Top up until the level is nearer to MAX
than MIN on the dipstick.
IMPORTANT
Never fill above the MAX mark. Oil consumption may increase if too much oil is
poured into the engine.
WARNING
Do not spill oil onto the hot exhaust manifold due to the risk of fire.
Checking with a warm engine
1. Wipe the dipstick clean.
2. Check the oil level using the dipstick.
3. If the level is close to the MIN mark,
start by topping up with 0.5 litres of oil.
Top up until the level is nearer to MAX
than MIN on the dipstick.
Coolant
IMPORTANT
Always use coolant with anti-corrosion
agent as recommended by Volvo. New cars
are filled with coolant that can withstand
temperatures down to approximately
-35 °C.
Checking and topping up the coolant
Check the coolant regularly
The level must lie between the MIN and MAX
marks on the expansion tank. If the system is
not filled sufficiently, high temperatures
could occur, causing a risk of damage to the
engine.
G021738
Park the car on a level surface, switch off the
engine and wait 10-15 minutes to allow the
oil time to run back to the sump. For capacities, see page 229.
When topping up the coolant, follow the
instructions on the packaging. To optimise
refrigerant and corrosion protection ensure
that the mixture of coolant is always 50 %
water and 50 % coolant. Never top up with
water only. The risk of freezing increases with
both too little and too much coolant concentrate. For capacities, see page 230.
WARNING
Coolant can be very hot. If the coolant
requires topping up when the engine is at
operating temperature, unscrew the expansion tank cap slowly to gently release the
overpressure.

06
The battery contains corrosive acid.
Avoid sparks and naked
flames.
NOTE
An expended battery must be recycled in an
environmentally safe manner, as it contains
lead.
Handling
• Check that the battery cables are correctly
connected and tightened.
• Never disconnect the battery when the

06 Maintenance and specifications
Fuses
All electrical functions and components are
protected by a number of fuses in order to
protect the car’s electrical system from damage by short circuiting or overloading. If an
electrical component or function does not
work, it may be because the component’s
fuse was temporarily overloaded and failed. If
the same fuse fails repeatedly then there is a
fault in the circuit. In which case, contact an
authorised Volvo workshop to have the system checked.
Changing
1. Look in the fuse diagram to locate the
fuse.
2. Pull out the fuse and check from the
side to see whether the curved wire has
blown.
3. If this is the case, replace it with a new
fuse of the same colour and amperage.

06 Maintenance and specifications
Wheels and tyres
General
Changing wheels
NOTE
Tyres greatly affect the car’s driving characteristics. The type of tyre, dimensions, tyre
pressure and speed rating are important for
how the car performs.
Ensure that tyres of the same type and
dimensions, and also the same make, are
fitted to all four wheels.
Removing
Follow the recommended tyre pressures
specified on the tyre pressure label, see
page 216.
G017465
Direction of rotation
G021778
Mounting points
06
The arrow shows the tyre’s direction of rotation
Tyres with a tread pattern which are
designed to only turn in one direction have
the direction of rotation marked with an
arrow. The tyre must always rotate in the
same direction throughout its lifespan. Tyres
should only be switched between front and
rear positions, never between left and righthand sides, or vice versa. If the tyre is
mounted incorrectly, the car’s braking characteristics and capacity to force rain and
slush out of the way are adversely affected.
206
Set up the warning triangle if a wheel must be
replaced at a busy location. The car and jack
must be on a firm horizontal surface.
1. Apply the parking brake and engage first
gear, or position P if the car has an
automatic gearbox.
2. Take out the spare wheel, jack and
wheel wrench that are located under the
carpet in the cargo area.
NOTE
Use the jack belonging to the car.
06 Maintenance and specifications
Wheels and tyres
Installation
1. Clean the contact surfaces on the wheel
and hub.
2. Put on the wheel. Screw in the wheel
bolts.
3. Lower the car so that the wheels cannot
rotate.
WARNING
Never crawl under the car when it is raised
on the jack.
Passengers must leave the car when it is
raised on the jack.
Park the car so that passengers have the
car - or preferably a crash barrier - between
them and the road.
4. (For cars with steel rims.) Prise off the
wheel cover with the end of the wheel
wrench, or pull it off by hand.
5. Loosen the wheel nuts ½–1 turn anticlockwise with the wheel wrench.
6. There are two jacking points on each
side of the car. Crank the foot of the
jack down so it is pressed squarely on
the ground. Check that the jack sits in
the anchorage as illustrated and that the
foot is positioned vertically under the
anchorage.
7. Lift the car so that the wheel is free.
Remove the wheel bolts and lift off the
wheel.
G021780
G021779
3. Place chocks in front of and behind the
wheels which will remain on the ground.
Use heavy wooden blocks or large
stones.
4. Tighten the wheel bolts crosswise. It is
important that the wheel bolts are tightened properly. Tighten to 140 Nm.
Check the torque with a torque wrench.
5. Fit on the wheel cover (for cars with
steel rims).
06
NOTE
The hubcap outlet for the valve must be
located over the valve on the rim when
fitted.
207
06 Maintenance and specifications
Wheels and tyres
Tyre age
All tyres older than six years should be
checked by an expert even if they seem
undamaged. Tyres age and decompose,
even if they are hardly ever or never used.
The function can therefore be affected. This
also applies to spare tyres, winter tyres and
tyres saved for future use. Examples of external signs which indicate that the tyre is
unsuitable for use are cracks or discoloration.
New tyres
1502
G021823
06
Tyres are perishable. After a few years they
begin to harden at the same time as the friction capacity/characteristics gradually deteriorate. For this reason, aim to get as fresh
208
tyres as possible when you replace them.
This is especially important with regard to
winter tyres. The week and year of manufacture, the tyre’s DOT marking (Department of
Transportation), are stated with four digits,
for example 1502. The tyre in the illustration
was manufactured in week 15 of 2002.
WARNING
A damaged tyre can lead to loss of control
of the car.
Tyres with tread wear indicators
Summer and winter tyres
When summer and winter wheels are
changed they should be marked with which
side of the car they were mounted on, for
example L for left and R for right.
Wear and maintenance
The correct tyre pressure results in more
even wear, see page 216. To achieve the
best traction and more even wear on the
tyres, the regular switching of the front and
rear tyres with each other is recommended.
The first change should be after 5 000 km
and then at intervals of 10 000 km, this is to
avoid differences in tread depth. Tyres with
the greatest tread depth should always be fitted to the rear wheels to decrease the risk of
skidding. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop if you are uncertain about tread depth.
Wheels should be stored lying down or hanging up, and not standing up.
G021829
Tyre care
Tread wear indicators are narrow treadless
bands across the width of the tread. On the
side of the tyre are the letters TWI (Tread
Wear Indicator). When the tyre’s tread depth
is down to 1.6 mm, the tread depth will be
level in height with the tread wear indicators.
Change to new tyres as soon as possible.
Remember that tyres with little tread depth
provide very poor grip in rain and snow.
06 Maintenance and specifications
Wheels and tyres
Rims and wheel bolts
IMPORTANT
The wheel bolts must be tightened to
140 Nm. Overtightening can damage the
nuts and the bolts.
Only use rims that are tested and approved
by Volvo and which are Volvo genuine accessories. Check the torque with a torque
wrench.
Locking wheel bolts
Locking wheel bolts can be used on both aluminium and steel rims.
Winter tyres
Using snow chains
Volvo recommends winter tyres with particular dimensions. These are stated on the tyre
pressure label, see page 215. The tyre
dimensions are dependent on the engine
variant. When driving on winter tyres, the correct tyres must be fitted to all four wheels.
Snow chains may only be used on the front
wheels (also applies to all-wheel drive cars).
NOTE
Ask a Volvo dealer which rim and tyre types
are most suitable.
Studded tyres
Studded winter tyres should be run in gently
for 500-1000 km so the studs settle properly
into the tyre. This gives the tyre, and especially the studs, a longer service life.
NOTE
Never drive faster than 50 km/h with snow
chains. Avoid driving on bare ground as this
wears out both the snow chains and tyres.
Never use quick-fit snow chains as the space
between the brake discs and the wheels is
too small.
IMPORTANT
Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent chains designed for the car model,
and tyre and rim dimensions. Consult an
authorised Volvo workshop
06
The legal provisions for the use of studded
tyres vary from country to country.
Tread depth
Road conditions with ice, slush and low temperatures place considerably higher
demands on tyres than summer conditions.
Volvo therefore recommends not to drive on
winter tyres that have a tread depth of less
than 4 millimetres.

Tools
Spare wheel*
The spare wheel (Temporary spare) is only
intended for temporary use. Replace the
spare wheel with a normal wheel as soon as
possible. The car’s handling may be altered
by the use of the spare wheel. The correct
tyre pressure for the spare wheel is stated on
the tyre pressure table, see page 216.
G014341
IMPORTANT
A foam block, located in the spare wheel rim,
contains all tools. The tools consist of a towing eye, jack and wheel wrench. The foam
block is screwed into a bracket in the bottom
of the spare wheel well.
06
Jack
The original jack should only be used for
changing wheels. The jack’s thread must
always be well greased.
Crank the jack together
Never drive faster than 80 km/h with a spare
wheel on the car.
IMPORTANT
The car must never be driven fitted with
more than one temporary spare wheel.
The spare wheel is located in the spare wheel
well with the outside down. Three foam
blocks, two under the spare wheel and one
over/inside affix the spare wheel in position.
The upper one contains all tools.
The same bolt runs through to secure the
spare wheel and the foam blocks.
Taking out the spare wheel
1. Fold the rear edge of the floor mat forward.
210
2. Undo the retaining screw.
3. Lift out the foam block with its tools.
4. Lift out the spare wheel.
The lower block does not need to be lifted
out.
After use
The foam block and spare wheel must be
replaced in the reverse order to being taken
out.

The emergency puncture repair kit has limited capacity to seal tyres which have punctures in the wall. Do not seal tyres with the
emergency puncture repair kit if they have
larger slits, cracks or similar damage.
G014340
12 V sockets for the compressor are located
by the centre console in the front, by the rear
seat and in the cargo area. Choose the electrical socket that is nearest the punctured
tyre.
General
The emergency puncture repair kit is used to
seal a puncture as well as to check and
adjust the tyre pressure. It consists of a compressor and a bottle with sealing fluid. The kit
works as a temporary repair. The sealing fluid
bottle must be replaced before its expiration
date and after use.
The sealing fluid effectively seals tyres punctured in the tread.
NOTE
WARNING
You should not drive faster than 80 km/h
after the emergency tyre repair kit has been
used. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop for inspection of the sealed tyre (maximum driving distance is 200 km). The staff
there can determine whether or not the tyre
can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced.

06 Maintenance and specifications
Wheels and tyres
Fuel economy, ECO pressure
At speeds under 160 km/h, the general tyre
pressure for full load is recommended in
order to obtain optimum fuel economy.
Checking the tyre pressure
The tyre pressures must be checked every
month. This also applies to the car’s spare
wheel. After several few kilometres of driving,
the tyres warm up and the pressure
increases. Check tyre pressures on cold
tyres. "Cold tyres" means the tyres are the
same temperature as the ambient temperature.
Inadequate tyre pressure increases fuel consumption, shortens tyre lifespan and impairs
the car’s roadholding. Driving on tyres with
tyre pressure that is too low could result in
the tyres overheating and being damaged.
Tyre pressure affects travelling comfort, road
noise and steering characteristics.
06
NOTE
Tyre pressure decreases over time, this is a
natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure also
varies depending on ambient temperature.
217
06 Maintenance and specifications
Car care
Washing the car
Wash the car as soon as it becomes dirty.
Wash the car in a car wash with oil separator.
Use car shampoo.
06
• Remove bird droppings from the paintwork as soon as possible. Bird droppings
contain chemicals that affect and discolour paintwork very quickly. An authorised
Volvo workshop is recommended for the
removal of any discoloration.
• Hose down the underbody. If using a
pressure washer, keep the nozzle at least
30 cm from the painted surfaces.
• Rinse the entire car to remove loose dirt.
Do not spray directly onto the locks.
• Wash using a sponge, car shampoo and
plenty of lukewarm water.
• Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
soap solution or car shampoo.
• Use cold degreasing agent on very dirty
surfaces.
• Dry the car using a clean, soft chamois or
a water scraper.
WARNING
Always have the engine cleaned by a workshop. There is a risk of fire if the engine is
hot.
218
NOTE
Outside lighting such as headlamps, fog
lamps and rear lamps may temporarily have
condensation on the inside of the lens. This
is a natural phenomenon, all outside lighting
is designed to withstand this. Condensation
is normally vented out of the lamp housing
when it has been switched on for a time.
Automatic car washes
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick
way of washing the car, but it cannot reach
everywhere. Handwashing the car is recommended for achieving optimum results.
NOTE
During the first few months a new car must
only be handwashed. This is because the
paintwork is more sensitive when it is new.
WARNING
Always test the brakes after washing the
car, including the parking brake, to ensure
that moisture and corrosion do not attack
the brake pads and reduce braking performance.
Lightly depress the brake pedal now and
then when driving long distances in rain or
slush. The heat from the friction causes the
brake linings to warm up and dry. Do the
same thing after starting in very damp or cold
weather.
Exterior plastic, rubber and trim
components
A special cleaning agent available from Volvo
dealers is recommended for cleaning coloured plastic parts, rubber and trim components, such as glossy trim mouldings. When
using such a cleaning agent the instructions
must be followed carefully.
IMPORTANT
Avoid waxing and polishing on plastic and
rubber.
Polishing glossy trim mouldings could wear
away or damage the glossy surface.
Polishing agent that contains abrasive must
not be used.
Rims
Only use cleaning agent recommended by
Volvo. Strong rim cleaning agents can damage the surface and cause stains on chromeplated aluminium rims.
06 Maintenance and specifications
Car care
Polishing and waxing
Polish and wax the car if the paintwork is dull
or to give the paintwork extra protection.
The car does not need to be polished until it
is at least one year old. However, the car can
be waxed during this time. Do not polish or
wax the car in direct sunlight.
Wash and dry the car thoroughly before you
begin polishing or waxing. Clean off asphalt
and tar stains using Volvo tar remover or
white spirit. More stubborn stains can be
removed using fine rubbing paste designed
for car paintwork.
Polish first with a polish and then wax with
liquid or solid wax. Follow the instructions on
the packaging carefully. Many preparations
contain both polish and wax.
IMPORTANT
Paint treatment such as preserving, sealing,
protection, lustre sealing or similar could
damage the paintwork. Paintwork damage
caused by such treatments is not covered
by Volvo warranty.
Cleaning front side windows that have
a water-repellent surface (option)
Rustproofing – inspection and
maintenance
Never use products such as car wax,
degreaser or similar on glass surfaces as this could ruin their water-repellent
properties.
The car received a thorough and complete
rustproofing at the factory. Parts of the body
are made of galvanised sheet metal. The
underbody is protected by a wear-resistant
anti-corrosion compound. A thin, penetrating
rustproofing fluid was sprayed into the
exposed members, cavities, closed sections
and side doors.
Take care when cleaning so as not to damage the glass surface.
To avoid damaging glass surfaces when
removing ice – only use plastic ice scrapers.
There is natural wear of the water-repellent
coating.
Treatment with a special finishing agent
available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the water-repellent properties. This should be used first after
three years and then each year.
Under normal conditions the rustproofing
does not require treatment for approximately
12 years. After this period, it should be
treated at three-year intervals. Please contact an authorised Volvo workshop if the car
needs further treatment.
Dirt and road salt can lead to corrosion so it
is important to keep the car clean. The car’s
rustproofing needs to be checked regularly
and touched-up if necessary in order for it to
be maintained.

06 Maintenance and specifications
Car care
Cleaning the interior
Only use cleaning agents and car care products recommended by Volvo. Clean regularly and follow the instructions included with
the car care product.
Stains on fabric upholstery and roof
upholstery
A special fabric cleaning agent, available
from authorised
Volvo dealers, is recommended to avoid
impairing the fire retardant qualities of the
upholstery.
Use water and a synthetic detergent to clean
the seatbelts. Make sure the seatbelt is dry
before allowing it to retract.
06
IMPORTANT
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage the
fabric upholstery.
Treating stains on leather upholstery
Volvo leather upholstery is chromium-free
and approved in accordance with the
Öko-Tex 100 standard.
The leather is refined and processed so that
it retains its natural characteristics. It is given
a protective coating, but regular cleaning
is required in order to maintain both charac-
220
teristics and appearance. Volvo offers a
comprehensive product for the cleaning and
treatment of leather upholstery which, when
used in accordance with the instructions,
preserves the leather’s protective coating.
After a period of use the natural appearance
of the leather will nevertheless emerge,
depending more or less on the surface texture of the leather. This is a natural maturing
of the leather and shows that it is a natural
product.
To achieve best results Volvo recommends
cleaning and application of the protective
cream once to four times per year (or more if
required). Ask a Volvo dealer about Volvo’s
Leather care product.
IMPORTANT
Never use strong solvents. Such products
may damage fabric, vinyl and leather upholstery.
IMPORTANT
Note that materials with colour that runs
when dry (new jeans, suede garments etc.)
may discolour the upholstery material.
Washing instructions for leather
upholstery
– Pour the leather cleaner on the dampened
sponge and squeeze out a strong foam.
– Work the dirt away with gentle circular
movements.
– Dab accurately with the sponge on the
stains. Allow the sponge to absorb the
stain. Do not rub.
– Wipe off with soft paper or a cloth and
allow the leather to dry completely.
Protective treatment of leather upholstery
– Pour a small amount of the protective
cream on the felted cloth and massage in
a thin layer of cream with gentle circular
movements on the leather.
– Allow the leather to dry for 20 minutes
before use.
The leather has now been given improved
protection against stains and improved UV
protection.
Treating stains on interior plastic, metal
and wood parts
A fibrillated fibre or microfibre cloth, lightly
moistened with water, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning interior
parts and surfaces.
06 Maintenance and specifications
Car care
Repairing stone chips
Paint is an important part of the car’s rustproofing and should therefore be checked
regularly. To avoid the onset of rust, damaged paintwork should be rectified immediately. The most common types of paintwork
damage are stone chips, scratches, and
marks on the edges of wings and doors.
Materials
• primer in a can
• paint in a can or touch-up pen
• brush
• masking tape
Colour code
G021832
Carpets and cargo area
Remove inlaid carpets for separate cleaning
of the floor carpet and the inlaid carpets. Use
a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt.
Touching up paintwork
Before work is begun, the car must be clean
and dry and at a temperature above 15 °C.
G021831
Do not scrape or rub stains. Never use strong
stain removers. A special cleaning agent
available from Volvo dealers can be used for
more difficult cleaning.
1. Apply a piece of masking tape over the
damaged surface. Then remove the tape
to remove any loose paint.
2. Stir the primer well and apply using a
fine brush or a matchstick. Apply paint
using a brush once the primer is dry.
3. For scratches, proceed as above, but
mask around the damaged area to protect the undamaged paintwork.
4. After a few days, polish the touched-up
areas. Use a soft rag and a small
amount of lapping paste.

IMPORTANT
In order to fulfil the requirements for the
engine’s service intervals all engines are
filled with a specially adapted synthetic
engine oil at the factory. The choice of oil
has been made very carefully with regard to
service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact. An
approved engine oil must be used in order
that the recommended service intervals can
be applied. Only use a prescribed grade of
oil (see the engine compartment decal) for

Fuel consumption and emissions of
carbon dioxide
Official fuel consumption figures are based
on a standard driving cycle in accordance
with EU Directive 80/1268 comb. Fuel consumption is affected if the car is equipped
with extra equipment that affects the car’s
weight. The manner in which the car is
06
driven, and other non-technical factors also
influence fuel consumption. For more information, see page 9.
