Owner’s Manual
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:
WARNING
"Warning!" texts indicate where there is a
risk of personal injury in the event of the instructions not being followed.
IMPORTANT
"Important!" texts indicate a risk of damage
to the car in the event of the instructions not
being followed.
The equipment described in the owner’s
manual is not present in all models. In addition to standard equipment, this manual also

Introduction
Volvo Cars and the environment
Volvo Car Corporation’s
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 certification to
the ISO 14001 environmental standard,
which supports work within the area of the
environment.
EPI (Environmental Product Information) is
supplied for all Volvo models. You can now
compare the environmental impact of different models and engines during the 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 on page 9.

Introduction
Volvo Cars and the environment
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.
In addition there is a special radiator coating,
PremAir®1, which can convert hazardous
ground-level ozone into pure oxygen when
the ozone passes the radiator. The higher the
ozone content in the air the more ozone is
converted.
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, IAQS2
(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 moni-

Option
tored 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. All of our upholstery and interior textiles
are tested with respect to certain unhealthy
substances and allergens as well as emissions. This means that all textiles fulfil the requirements in the Öko-Tex 100 standard3, a
major advance towards a healthier passenger compartment environment.
Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts, carpets, thread and fabrics for example. The
leather in 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 for the car with low fuel
consumption, and this way you contribute to
a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s workshops are entrusted with the repair and
maintenance of the 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.
Introduction
Volvo Cars and the environment
Reducing environmental impact
You can 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 hints will help you to do your bit
for the environment:
• Decrease fuel consumption by choosing
ECO tyre pressure, see page 155.
• Since a roof load and ski
box increase air resistance, leading to significantly higher fuel
consumption, they
should be removed immediately after use.
• Remove unnecessary items from the car the greater the load the higher the fuel
consumption.
• Is your car equipped with an engine block
heater? If so, use it for a few hours before
starting from cold to reduce 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.
• Ease back on the accelerator on downhill gradients.
• Use engine braking to slow down.
• Avoid idling. Take consideration of local
regulations. Switch off the engine in traffic
queues.
• Always dispose of environmentally hazardous
waste, such as batteries
and oils, in an environmentally safe manner. If
uncertain, 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 you to reduce your fuel
consumption without increasing your 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.

Seatbelts
Always use a seatbelt
feed the belt in by hand so that it does not
hang lose.
WARNING
Each belt is intended for one person only.
The belt locks and cannot be withdrawn
• if it is pulled out too quickly.
• during braking and acceleration.
• if the car leans heavily
It is important that the belt 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.
Tensioning the hip strap. The belt must be
positioned low down.
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if seatbelts are not used. Ensure
that all passengers use their seatbelts.
Putting on a seatbelt:
– Pull the belt out slowly and secure it by
pressing the buckle into the lock. A loud
"click" indicates that the belt has locked.
Releasing the belt
– Press the red lock button and let the belt
retract. If the belt does not retract fully,
12
Keep in mind the following:
• do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the belt from fitting properly.
• ensure the belt is not be 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 belt yourself.
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop. If
the belt has been subjected to a major load,
such as in a collision, the entire belt must be
replaced. Some of the belt’s protective
properties may have been lost even if the
belt does not appear damaged. The belt
should also be replaced if it shows signs of
wear or damage. The new belt must be
type-approved and designed for installation
at the same location as the replaced belt.
01 Safety
Seatbelts
Seatbelt reminder
Unbelted occupants will be reminded to fasten their seatbelts through an audio and visual reminder. The audio reminder is speed-dependent. The visual reminder is located in the
roof console and the combined instrument
panel. At low speed, the audio reminder will
sound for the first six seconds.
Child seats are not covered by the seatbelt
reminder system.
Rear seat
The seatbelt reminder in the rear seat has
two subfunctions:
• To provide information on which seatbelts
are being used in the rear seat (shown in
the information display). The message is
automatically cleared after approx.
30 seconds or can be acknowledged
manually by pressing the READ button.
• To provide a warning if one of the rear
seatbelts is unfastened during travel. This
warning takes the form of a message in
the information display along with the
audio and visual signal. The warning ceases when the seatbelt is re-fastened or
when manually acknowledged by pressing
the READ button.
The message in the information display
showing which belts are in use is always
available. Press the READ button to see
stored messages.
Seatbelts and pregnancy
Certain markets
An unbelted driver will be reminded to fasten
his or her seatbelt through an audio and visual reminder. At low speed, the audio reminder
will sound for the first six seconds.
The seat belt should always be worn during
pregnancy. But it is crucial that it be worn in
the correct way. The diagonal section should
wrap over the shoulder then be routed between the breasts and to the side of the abdomen. The lap section should lay flat over
the thighs and as low as possible under the
abdomen. It must never be allowed to ride
upward. Remove all slack from the belt and
insure that it fits close to the body without
any twists.
01
As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers
should adjust their seats and steering wheel
such that they can easily maintain control of

Seatbelts
the vehicle as they drive (which means they
must be able to easily operate the foot pedals and steering wheel). Within this context,
they should strive to position the seat with as
large a distance as possible between their
abdomen and the steering wheel.
Seatbelt tensioner
All the seatbelts (except the centre rear belt)
are equipped with belt tensioners. A mechanism in the belt tensioner tightens the belt
around the body in the event of a sufficiently
violent collision. This provides more effective
restraint for passengers.

possible with their feet on the floor and
backs against the backrest. Seatbelts must
be secured.
WARNING
The car has an SRS airbag (Supplemental
Restraint System) in the steering wheel to
supplement the protection afforded by the
seatbelt. This airbag is fitted into the centre
of the steering wheel. The steering wheel is
marked SRS AIRBAG.
The car has an SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System) to supplement the protection

WARNING
Repairs must only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.
Any interference in the system could cause
malfunction and serious injury.
SRS system, left-hand drive.
The system consists of airbags and sensors.
A sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors and the airbag(s) are inflated with hot
gas. To cushion the impact, the airbag deflates when compressed. When this occurs,
smoke escapes into the car. This is completely normal. The entire process, including
inflation and deflation of the airbag, occurs
within tenths of a second.
SRS system, right-hand drive.
NOTE
The sensors react differently depending on
the course of the collision and whether 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 SRS system senses the force
of the collision on the car and adapts accordingly so that one or more airbags is deployed.
NOTE
The airbags have a function whereby their
capacities are adapted to the collision force
to which the car is subjected.

WARNING
Use only Volvo genuine car seat covers, or
seat covers approved by Volvo. Other seat
covers may impede the operation of the
side air bags.
Child seats and side airbags
Side airbag locations.
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 are
an important part of the SIPS. The side airbags are located in the front seat backrests.
Inflated side airbag.
WARNING
Side airbags are a supplement to the SIPS
system. Always wear a seatbelt.
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 or booster cushion can be
placed on the front passenger seat provided
that the car does not have an activated1 passenger airbag.
WARNING
Repairs must only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.

Side airbags (SIPS bags)
SIPS bags
Driver’s side
The SIPS bag system consists of side airbags and sensors. A sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors and the side airbags
are inflated. The airbag inflates between the
occupant and the door panel and thereby
cushions the initial impact while deflating.
The side airbag is normally only deployed on
the side of the collision.

01 Safety
Inflatable Curtain (IC)
01
Properties
The inflatable curtain, IC (Inflatable Curtain),
is a supplement to the SIPS system. It is fitted in the headlining along both sides of the
roof and protects both front and rear seat
passengers. The inflatable curtain is activated by sensors in the event of a sufficiently violent collision and the inflatable curtain inflates. The inflatable curtain helps to prevent
the driver and passengers from striking their
heads on the inside of the car during a collision.
WARNING
Never hang or fasten anything on the roof
handles. The hook is only intended for light
outer garments (not for hard objects such
as umbrellas).
Do not screw or fit anything to the headlining, door pillars or side panels. This could
compromise the intended protection. Only
use Volvo genuine parts that are approved
for placement in these areas.
WARNING
Do not load the car higher than 50 mm
under the top edge of the rear passenger
windows. Otherwise, the intended protection of the inflatable curtain, which is hidden
in the headlining, may be compromised.
WARNING
The inflatable curtain is a supplement to the
seatbelts.
Always use a seatbelt.

01 Safety
01
WHIPS
Protection against whiplash injury – WHIPS
The whiplash protection system (WHIPS)
consists of energy absorbing backrests and
specially designed head restraints for the
front seats. The system is actuated by a rearend collision, where the angle and speed of
the collision, and the nature of the colliding
vehicle all have an influence.
Properties of the seat
When the WHIPS system is deployed, the
front seat backrests fall backward to alter the
position of the driver and front seat passenger. This diminishes the risk of whiplash
injury.
WARNING
WARNING
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.
24
Never modify or repair the seat or WHIPS
system yourself. Contact an authorised
Volvo workshop.
WHIPS system and child seats/
booster cushions
The WHIPS system does not diminish the
protection provided by the car to children
seated in a child seat or on a booster
cushion.
Correct seating position
For the best possible protection, the driver
and front seat passenger should sit in the
centre of the seat with as little space as possible between the head and the head
restraint.
01 Safety
WHIPS
Do not obstruct the WHIPS system
01
WARNING
If a seat has been subjected to extreme
forces, such as due to a rear-end collision,
the WHIPS system must be checked by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Part of the WHIPS system’s protective capacity may have been lost even if the seat
appears to be undamaged.
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop to
have the system checked even after a minor
rear-end collision.
WARNING
Do not squeeze rigid objects between the
rear seat cushion and the front seat backrest. Make sure you do not to obstruct the
function of the WHIPS system.
WARNING
If a rear seat backrest is folded down, the
corresponding front seat must be moved
forward so that it does not touch the folded
backrest.

ROPS
ROPS
Volvo’s Roll-Over Protection System has
been designed to reduce the risk of the car
overturning and to provide the best possible
protection in the event of an accident.
The system consists of:
• A stabiliser system, RSC (Roll Stability
Control) that minimises the risk of overturning during sudden evasive manoeuvres or the like or if the car skids.
• Increased protection for the driver and
passengers through a reinforced body,
inflatable curtains and seatbelt tensioners
in all seats. See also page 14 and
page 23.
The RSC system uses a gyro sensor which
registers changes in the car’s lateral inclination angle. This information is then used to
calculate the risk for overturning. If a risk is
detected, the DSTC system is engaged, engine speed is reduced and one or more
wheels are braked until the car returns to a
stable position.
For more information on the DSTC system,
see page 46 and page 125.
26
WARNING
Under normal driving conditions, the RSC
system improves the car’s road safety, but
this must not be taken as a reason to increase speed. Always follow the usual precautions for safe driving.

The bodywork of the car could be greatly deformed in a collision without airbag deployment. A number of factors such as the rigidity and weight of the object hit, the
speed of the car, the angle of the collision etc. affects how the different safety systems of the car are activated.
If the airbags have been deployed, the following is recommended:
• Have the car transported to an authorised
Volvo workshop. Do not drive with deployed airbags.
• Have an authorised Volvo workshop replace components in the car’s safety system.
• Always contact a doctor.
WARNING
The airbag control module is located in the
centre console. If the centre console is
drenched with water or other liquid, disconnect the battery cables. Do not attempt to
start the car since the airbags may deploy.
Have the car transported to an authorised
Volvo workshop.
WARNING
Never drive with deployed airbags. They
can make steering difficult. Other safety
systems may also be damaged. The smoke
and dust created when the airbags are deployed can cause skin and eye irritation
after intensive exposure. In case of irritation, wash with cold water. The rapid deployment sequence and airbag fabric may
cause friction injury and burns to the skin.
NOTE
The SRS, SIPS, IC and belt tensioner systems are deployed only once during a
collision.

Child safety
Children should sit comfortably and
safely
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.
Child seats and airbags
You may place:
• a child seat or booster cushion on the
front passenger seat, provided the passenger airbag is not activated1.
• a rear-facing child seat in the rear seat that
uses the back of the front seat as support.
Child seat and seatbelt reminder
The position of a child in the car and the
choice of equipment is dictated by the child’s
weight and size, for more information see
page 30.
If a rear-facing infant or child seat is placed in
the front seat and secured using the seatbelt,
the seatbelt reminder might not be activated.
Always check that the belt is locked before
driving off!
NOTE
28
Always place a child in the rear seat if the
passenger airbag is activated1. A child in a
child seat on the front passenger seat may
suffer serious injury if the airbag deploys.
WARNING
Regulations regarding the placement of
children in cars vary from country to country. Check what laws apply.
Children of all ages and sizes must always sit

Extra locking function in seatbelt
(ALR/ELR)1
The seatbelt in the centre of the second row
of seats has an extra locking function
(ALR/ELR) to help hold the belt taunt in order
to facilitate child seat installation.
When installing a child seat with the help of
the seatbelt:
The car is equipped with mounting points for
child seats. These mounting points are located on the rear of the rear seats.
NOTE
These mounting points are only on the second row of seats in cars seating seven.
Fold the backrest forward to access the
mounting points. For detailed information on
how to secure the child seat in the upper
mounting points, refer to the instructions
from the seat manufacturer.
– Secure the seatbelt in the child seat following the instructions of the child seat
manufacturer.
– Pull out the entire seatbelt.
– Lock the belt by inserting the locking tab
in the buckle. A loud "click" indicates that
the belt is locked.
– Allow the seatbelt mechanism to retract
the belt while stretching it around the child
seat. A mechanical sound will be audible
from the seatbelt. This is normal.
This function is automatically deactivated
when the seatbelt is released from the buckle
and retracts back to its starting position.
If there are any problems with installation of
child safety products, contact the manufacturer for clearer installation instructions.

Air conditioning
Refrigerant
The climate control system cools or heats,
and dehumidifies the air entering the passenger compartment. The car is equipped with
electronic climate control (ECC).
The air conditioning system contains R134a
refrigerant. This refrigerant contains no chlorine, which means that it is harmless to the
ozone layer. The system must only be
charged with R134a refrigerant. Have an authorised Volvo workshop carry out this work.
NOTE
The air conditioning can be switched off, but
to ensure the best possible air in the passenger compartment and prevent the windows
from misting, it should always be on.
Misting windows
Reduce the problem of windows misting up
on the inside by cleaning the windows. Use a
regular window cleaner.
Ventilation fan function
When the engine is off (and if the ignition key
is in position I or II), the ventilation fan is automatically switched off. This is to prevent
the battery from becoming discharged.
To activate the ventilation fan, turn the fan
control and set the desired speed.
ECC (option)
Particle filter
Make sure that the multifilter/particle filter is
replaced regularly. Consult an authorised
Volvo workshop.
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.

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.
Sensor location
• The sun sensor is on the top side of the
dashboard.
• The temperature sensor for the passenger
compartment is behind the climate control
panel.
NOTE
Do not cover or block the sensors with
clothing or other objects.
Side windows and sunroof
To ensure that the air conditioning works satisfactorily, the side windows, and sunroof if
appropriate, should be closed.
Acceleration
The air conditioning system switches off
temporarily at full acceleration. You may feel
a temporary rise in temperature.
Condensation
In warm weather, condensation from the air
conditioning system may drip under the car.
This is normal.
Fuel economy
With ECC, the air conditioning system is controlled automatically and is used just enough
to cool the passenger compartment and to
adequately dehumidify the incoming air. This
provides better fuel economy compared to
conventional systems where the air conditioning cools the air to just above freezing
point.

2. Air quality system, recirculation/
multifilter (option certain markets)
Certain cars are equipped with a "Multifilter"
and air quality sensor. The Multifilter separates gases and particles, thus reducing the
volume of odours and pollutants. The air
quality sensor detects increased levels of
contaminants in the outside air. When the air
quality sensor detects contaminated outside
air, the air intake is closed and the air in the

Operation:
Press
to activate the air quality
sensor (normal setting).
Or:
– Select one of the following three functions
by repeatedly pressing
.
• MAN LED lit: Recirculation is now activated.
• No LED lit: Recirculation is not activated
unless needed to cool in a warm climate.
• AUT LED lit: The air quality sensor is now
activated.
Keep the following in mind:
• Make it a rule to have the air quality sensor
activated at all times.
• Recirculation is limited in cold weather to
avoid misting.
• If misting occurs, you should deactivate
the air quality sensor.
• If misting occurs, you can use the defroster functions for the windscreen, side windows and rear window.
• Follow the Volvo service programme for
the recommended replacement interval of
the Multifilter. If the car is used in environments where more contaminants are
present, it may be necessary to change
the Multifilter more often.
3. Recirculation
Recirculation can be used to shut out bad air,
exhaust, etc. from the passenger compartment. The air in the passenger compartment
is then recirculated, i.e. no air from outside
the car is taken into the car when this function is activated.
If you allow the air in the car to recirculate,
there is a risk of icing and misting, especially
in winter.
The timer function (cars with Multifilter and
air quality sensor have no timer function)
minimises the risk for ice, misting and bad
air.
Activate the function as follows:
– Press
for more than 3 seconds. The
LED flashes for 5 seconds. The air recirculates in the car for 3–12 minutes depending on the outside temperature.

Messages in the display
Once the settings for TIMER 1, TIMER 2 and
Direct Start are activated, the amber warning
symbol in the combined instrument panel illuminates and explanatory text is shown in
the display.
When you leave the car, you will receive a
message regarding the current settings of
the system.
Parking on a hill
If you park your car on a steep incline, the
front of the car should be facing down the
slope to ensure the supply of fuel to the parking heater.
The electrical system must be "awakened"
before the parking heater can be programmed.
This is done by:
• pressing the READ button or
• activating main beam or
• turning on the ignition.
The parking heater can be started immediately or set with two different start times using
TIMER 1 and TIMER 2. Here, start time refers
to the time the car is heated and ready. The
car’s electronic system calculates when heating should be started based on the outside
temperature. The heater is not run if the outside temperature exceeds 25 °C. At –10 °C
and below, the maximum running time of the
parking heater is 60 minutes.

Cargo area
General
must also remember to protect yourself
against injuries from behind. When loading
cargo, bear in mind that improperly secured
or incorrectly loaded objects in the cargo
area could be thrown forward with great
speed and force in the event of a collision or
sudden braking, causing serious injuries.
Bear in mind that if an object weighing 20 kg
is subjected to a head-on collision at a speed
of 50 km/h, its impact weight will be 1000 kg.
04
Think about the following when loading:
Payload depends on the car’s total kerb
weight, including any accessories that are
mounted. Kerb weight includes the driver,
the weight of the fuel tank when filled to 90%
and various fluids, such as washer fluid and
coolant. Mounted accessories, i.e. towbar,
load carriers, space box, etc., are included in
the kerb weight.
The load capacity of the car is reduced by
the number of passengers and their weight.
• Do not load extremely heavy objects up by
the front seats. The lowered backrest will
be pressed down unnecessarily hard.
• Place the load by the backrest.
• Position heavy loads as low as possible.
• Position wide loads on each side of the
division in the backrest.
• Cover sharp edges with something soft.
• Secure the load with retaining straps using
the car’s lashing eyes.
• Never load above the backrest without a
load net.
WARNING
Loading the cargo area
The seatbelts and airbags provide the driver
and passengers substantial protection, especially in head-on collisions. However, you
92
The driving characteristics of the car
change based on the car’s kerb weight and
how heavily it is loaded.
WARNING
Never load cargo above the backrests! If
you do so, the load could be thrown forward
in the event of sudden braking or a collision
and severely injure you or your passengers.
Remember to always secure (bind) the load
properly.
If the rear seat backrest is lowered, do not
load the car higher than 50 mm under the
top edge of the rear passenger windows.
Leave 10 cm of free space from the windows inwards. Otherwise, the intended protection of the inflatable curtain, which is
hidden in the headlining, may be compromised.
Always secure the load. During heavy braking the load may otherwise shift, causing
personal injury.
Turn off the engine and apply the parking
brake when loading or unloading long objects! You may accidentally knock the gear
lever or gear selector with the load and
cause a gear to engage and the car to move
off.

STARTING AND DRIVING
06
06 Starting and driving
General
Economical driving
Driving economically means driving smoothly
while thinking ahead and adjusting your driving style and speed to the prevailing conditions.
06
• Get the engine warmed up as soon as
possible.
• 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.
• Avoid sudden unnecessary acceleration
and heavy braking.
• 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.
• Avoid driving with open windows.
Slippery driving conditions
Practise driving on slippery surfaces under
controlled conditions to learn how the car reacts.
Engine and cooling system
Under special conditions, for example when
driving in hilly terrain, extreme heat or with
112
heavy loads, there is a risk that the engine
and cooling system will overheat.
Avoid overheating the cooling system
• 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.
• Remove any auxiliary lamps from in front
of the grille if driving in extreme high
temperatures.
Avoid overheating the engine
Do not exceed engine speeds of 4500 rpm
(diesel engine: 3500 rpm) if driving with a
trailer or caravan in hilly terrain. The oil temperature can become too high.
Driving on rough roads
The Volvo XC90 is primarily designed for
driving on main roads, but also has good
handling properties on uneven or rough
roads. Keep the following in mind in order to
preserve the service life of your car:
• Drive slowly on rough roads so you do not
damage the car’s underbody.
• If the ground is loose or is made up of dry
sand or snow, it is always best to keep the
car moving at all times and avoid shifting.
Do not stop the car.
• If the road is extremely steep and there is
a risk of overturning, never try to turn the
car around. Reverse back down. Do not
drive diagonally across an incline. Drive in
the direction of the incline.
Open tailgate
Avoid driving with the tailgate open. If it is
necessary to drive with the tailgate open for a
short distance, proceed as follows:
– Close all windows.
– Set the air distribution to the windscreen
and floor and run the fan at high speed.
WARNING
Do not drive with the tailgate open. Toxic
exhaust fumes can be drawn into the car
through the cargo area.
NOTE
Avoid driving on steep slopes if the fuel level is low. The catalytic converter could be
damaged if the engine does not receive
enough fuel. When driving on extremely
steep slopes, make sure the tank is more
than half full to avoid the risk of breakdown.
06 Starting and driving
General
Driving in water
The car can be driven through water at a
maximum depth of 40 cm at a maximum
speed of 10 km/h. Extra caution should be
exercised when passing through flowing water.
IMPORTANT
Engine damage may occur if water enters
the air filter.
In greater depths, water can enter the transmission. This reduces the lubricating ability
of the oils and shortens the service life of
these systems.
When 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.
NOTE
Clean the electric contacts of the electric
engine block heater and trailer coupling after driving in water and mud.
IMPORTANT
Do not let the car stand with water over the
sills for any long period of time. This could
cause electrical malfunctions.
In the event of stalling in water, do not try to
restart. Tow the car out of the water.
Do not overload the battery
The electrical functions in the car load the
battery to varying degrees. Avoid having the
ignition key in position II when the engine is
switched off. Use position I instead, as less
power is used. The 12 volt outlet in the cargo
area supplies power even when the ignition
key is removed.
Examples of functions that use a lot of
power:
• ventilation fan
• windscreen wipers
• audio equipment (high volume)
• parking lights.
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.
06
If the battery voltage is low, a message appears on the display. The energy-saving
function shuts down certain functions or reduces the load on the battery by, for example, slowing the ventilation fan and switching
off the audio equipment. Charge the battery
by starting the engine.
113
06 Starting and driving
Refuelling
Opening the fuel filler flap
The fuel cap is inside the fuel filler flap on the right-hand rear wing and hangs up on the inside of the fuel filler flap.
06
The fuel filler flap can be opened when the
car is unlocked.
NOTE
The filler flap remains unlocked for
ten minutes after the car is locked. It then
locks automatically.
Emergency unlocking of the fuel filler
flap
The fuel filler flap can be opened manually
when necessary if it cannot be opened normally.
114
Proceed as follows:
– Lift up the corner piece from the floor in
the rear right-hand corner of the cargo
area.
– Open the fuel filler flap by lifting up the
handle and pulling it out.
– Fold aside the insulation in order to access the flap’s electrical lock.
– Insert your hand and locate the lock. It’s
location is approximately inside the rear
edge of the fuel filler flap.
– Pull the lock plunger straight back. The
flap can now be folded out. After refuelling
the flap can be relocked by closing it and
pushing the lock plunger forward.
WARNING
There are sharp edges behind the panel so
move your hands slowly and carefully.
06 Starting and driving
Refuelling
Fuel filler flap
High outside temperatures can cause some
overpressure in the tank. Open the cap
slowly.
NOTE
Refit the fuel cap after refuelling. Turn until
one or more clear clicks are heard.
Filling up with fuel
Do not overfill the tank but fill until the pump
nozzle cuts out.
NOTE
Excess fuel in the tank can overflow in hot
weather.
Fuel of a lower quality than that specified on
page 249 should not be used as engine power and fuel consumption can be negatively
affected.
WARNING
Fuel which spills onto the ground can be ignited by the exhaust fumes.
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.
Petrol
IMPORTANT
Do not add cleaning additives to the petrol,
unless recommended by Volvo.
Diesel
At low temperatures (–5 °C to –40 °C), a paraffin precipitate may form in the diesel fuel,
which can lead to ignition problems.
06
IMPORTANT
Use special winter grade fuel during cold
months.
115
06 Starting and driving
Starting the engine
Before starting the engine
– Apply the parking brake.
Automatic gearbox
– Gear selector in position P or N.
Manual gearbox
– Shift the gear lever into neutral and hold
the clutch pedal fully depressed. This is
particularly important in very cold
conditions.
WARNING
06
Never remove the ignition key from the
steering lock while driving or when the car is
being towed. The steering lock could otherwise be activated, making it impossible to
steer the car.
The ignition key must be in position II when
the car is being towed.
NOTE
The master key blade must be fully extended (as illustrated on page 100) when starting the car. Otherwise there is a risk that the
immobiliser function will prevent the car
from starting.
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
environment.
Starting the engine
Petrol
– Turn the ignition key to position III.
If the engine does not start within
5–10 seconds, release the key and try
again.
Diesel
1. Turn the ignition key to position II.
An indicator symbol in the combined instrument panel shows that engine preheating is underway, see page 46.
2. Turn the ignition key to position III
when the indicator symbol goes out.
Diesel particle filter (DPF)1
Diesel cars may be 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 fil1 Certain
116
markets.
ter. This requires the engine to have reached
normal operating temperature.
Regeneration of the filter takes place automatically at an interval of 300 – 900 km depending on driving conditions. Regeneration
normally takes between 10 and 20 minutes.
During this time fuel consumption may increase slightly.
The rear window heating may be activated
automatically to increase the load on the engine during regeneration without warning.
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.
When the filter has become approximately
80% full of particles, the yellow information
symbol on the dashboard illuminates,
and the message SOOT FILTER FULL
SEE MANUAL is shown on the dashboard
display. 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
message is cleared automatically.
06 Starting and driving
Starting the engine
IMPORTANT
If the filter fills up it may be incapable of
functioning. Then it can be difficult to start
the engine and there is a risk that the filter
will have to be replaced.
Use the parking heater (option) in cold
weather so that the engine reaches normal
operating temperature more quickly.
Ignition keys and electronic
immobiliser
The ignition key must not hang with other
keys or metal objects on the same key ring.
The electronic immobiliser could otherwise
be activated accidentally.
Never rev the engine hard straight after a
cold start! If the engine does not start or misfires, contact a Volvo workshop.
WARNING
Never switch off the ignition (position 0 or 1)
or remove the ignition key while the car is
moving. The steering lock could otherwise
be activated, making it impossible to steer
the car.
Always remove the ignition key from the
steering lock when leaving the car – especially if children are left alone in the car.
Ignition switch and steering lock
0 – Locked position
The steering lock is activated when the key is removed
from the lock.
I – Radio position
Certain electrical components can be switched on.
The engine’s electrical system is not activated.
Autostart (3.2 and V8)
Using the autostart function, the ignition key
does not need to be kept in the start position
(position III) until the engine has started. Turn
the ignition key to the start position and release it. The starter motor then operates automatically (up to ten seconds) until the engine has started.
NOTE
Make sure the steering wheel locks when
you leave the car. This reduces the risk of
theft.
II – Driving position
Key position when driving.
The car’s electrical system
is connected.
III – Start position
The starter motor is engaged. Release the key,
which springs back automatically to the driving position, once the engine has
started.
06
If the key is hard to turn, the front wheels may
be turned in such a way that there is tension
in the steering wheel lock. In which case, turn
the wheel back and forth to make it easier to
turn the key.
117
06 Starting and driving
Manual gearbox
Gear positions
06
– Depress the clutch pedal fully during each
gear change.
– Remove your foot from the clutch pedal
between gear changes. Follow the appropriate shifting pattern.
Use 6th gear as often as possible for the best
possible fuel economy.
Reverse gear inhibitor
Only engage reverse gear when the car is
stationary.
118
06 Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
Cold start
When starting in low temperatures, the gear
changes can sometimes feel hard. This is
due to the gearbox oil’s viscosity at low temperatures. To minimise engine emissions, the
gearbox shifts up later than normal when the
engine is started at low temperatures.
NOTE
Depending on the engine temperature when
the engine is started, the idle speed after a
cold start may be higher than normal for
certain engine types.
Turbo engine
When the engine is cold, the transmission
shifts gears at higher revs. This allows the
catalytic converter to reach normal operating temperature more quickly, with less exhaust emissions.
Adaptive system
The gearbox is controlled by what is known
as an adaptive system. The system continually monitors how the gearbox is behaving
and senses every gear change for optimum
change quality.
Lock-up function
The gears have a lock-up function (locked
gears), which gives better engine braking and
lower fuel consumption.
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.
If the accelerator is released from the kickdown position, the gearbox automatically
changes up.
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
To prevent overrevving, the gearbox control
program has a protective downshift inhibitor
which prevents the kick-down function.
The kick-down function cannot be used in
manual gear position.
Safety systems
Parking position (P)
Stationary car with engine running:
– Hold your foot on the brake pedal when
moving the gear selector to another position.
Electric gear inhibitor – Shiftlock
Parking position (P position)
To be able to move the gear selector from the
P position to other gear positions, the ignition
key must be in position I or II and the brake
pedal must be depressed.
Shiftlock – Neutral (N position)
If the gear selector is in the N position and
the car has been stationary for at least three
seconds (irrespective of whether the engine
is running) then the gear selector is locked in
the N position.
06
To be able to move the gear selector from the
N position to another gear position, the brake
pedal must be depressed and the ignition
key must be in position II.
Cars with an automatic gearbox have special
safety systems:
Keylock
To remove the ignition key, the gear selector
must be in the P position. The key is locked
in all other positions.
119
06 Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
D – Drive
D is the normal driving position. The car automatically shifts between the different gears
of the gearbox based on the level of acceleration and speed. The car should be stationary when D is selected from position R.
06
P – Parking position
Select position P when you wish to start the
engine or park the car.
IMPORTANT
The car must be stationary when position P
is selected.
NOTE
The brake pedal must be depressed to
move the gear selector from the P position.
120
In P the gearbox is mechanically locked. Always apply the parking brake when parking
the car.
R – Reverse
The car must be stationary when R is selected.
N – Neutral
N is the neutral position. No gear is engaged
and the engine can be started. Apply the
parking brake when the car is stationary with
the gear selector in position N.
06 Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
Gear selector inhibitor
Manual positions
To move from the automatic driving
position D to a manual position, move the
gear selector to position M. To go from
position M to the automatic driving
position D, move the selector to position D.
On the 5-speed automatic gearbox, gears 3,
4 and 51 have the Lock-up function (locked
gears), which provides better engine braking
and lower fuel consumption.
While driving
The manual gearshift mode can be selected
at any time while driving. The engaged gear
is locked until you choose another gear.
The gear selector can always be moved freely between N and D. Other positions are
locked with a catch that is released with the
inhibitor button on the gear selector.
With one press on the inhibitor button you
can move the lever forwards or backwards
between the gear positions, N, R and P.
If the gear selector is moved to – (minus) the
car changes down a gear and engine brakes
at the same time as the accelerator pedal is
released. If the gear selector is moved to
+ (plus) the car changes up a gear.
W – Winter
The W button is used to activate and deactivate the
winter program W. Display
of the W symbol in the
combined instrument panel
indicates that the winter
program is active.
The winter programme starts the gearbox in
3rd gear to make it easier to pull off on slippery roads. When the programme is engaged, lower gears are activated only by
kick-down.
The W program can be selected regardless
of the position of the gear selector, but is
only operational when the selector is in
position D.
06
Third gear is the highest gear that can be
used when starting.
1 2nd
and 6th gear also have lock-up on the 6speed automatic gearbox.
121
06 Starting and driving
All-wheel drive
All-wheel drive – AWD
All-wheel drive is always engaged.
All-wheel drive means that all four road
wheels are driven at the same time. Power is
automatically distributed between front and
rear wheels. An electronically controlled
clutch system distributes the power to the
pair of wheels that grips best. This provides
the best traction and prevents wheel spin.
Under normal driving conditions, the majority
of power is transmitted to the front wheels.
All-wheel drive improves driving safety in
rain, snow and icy conditions.
06
122
06 Starting and driving
Brake system
Brake servo
If the car is rolling or is being towed with the
engine turned off, the brake pedal must be
pressed about five times harder than when
the engine is running. If the brake pedal is
pressed when the engine is started, you will
feel the pedal drop. This is normal and due to
the brake servo becoming active. This may
be more noticeable if the car has emergency
brake assistance (EBA).
WARNING
The brake servo only works when the engine is running.
NOTE
If braking with the engine switched off,
press the brake pedal sharply once, not repeatedly.
Brake circuits
This symbol lights if a brake circuit
is not working.
If a fault should occur in one of the
circuits, it is still possible to brake
the car. The brake pedal will travel further
and may feel softer than normal. Harder
pressure on the pedal is needed to produce
the normal braking effect.
Dampness can affect braking characteristics
Brake components become wet when the
car is driven in heavy rain, through pools of
water or when the car is washed. This may
alter brake pad friction characteristics so that
there is a delay before braking effect is noticed.
Press the brake pedal lightly from time to
time if driving for long stretches in rain or
slushy snow, as well as after setting off in
very damp or cold weather. This warms up
the braking surfaces and dries off any water.
It is also recommended to do this before
parking the car for a long period in such
weather conditions.
and requires the foot brake for only brief periods.
Bear in mind that driving with a trailer puts an
additional load on the car’s brakes.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
The anti-lock braking system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking
up under braking.
This means the ability to steer is
maintained and it is easier to swerve to avoid
a hazard, for example.
After the engine has been started, the ABS
will perform a brief self-test at a speed of
about 20 km/h. This can be felt and heard as
pulses in the brake pedal.
If the brakes are used heavily
To get the most out of the ABS:
When driving in the Alps or other roads with
similar characteristics, the car’s brakes are
heavily loaded even if the brake pedal is not
being depressed especially hard.
– Depress the brake pedal with full force.
Pulses will be felt.
– Steer the car in the direction of travel. Do
not release the pressure on the pedal.
Practice braking with the ABS system in a
traffic-free area and in different weather conditions.
Because speed is often low, the brakes are
not cooled as effectively as when driving on
flat roads at higher speed.
So as not to overload the brakes, shift down
when driving downhill instead of using the
foot brake. Use the same gear driving downhill as you would use driving uphill. This
method uses engine braking more efficiently
06
The ABS symbol illuminates for two seconds
if there was a fault in the ABS system when
the engine was last running.
123
06 Starting and driving
Brake system
Electronic brake force distribution
system – EBD
The Electronic Brakeforce Distribution system (EBD) is an integrated part of the ABS
system. The EBD system controls the brake
force to the rear wheels so that the best possible braking force is always available. Pulses
will be heard and felt through the brake pedal
when the system regulates brake force.
WARNING
06
124
If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols are
lit at the same time, a fault may have occurred in the brake system. If the level in the
brake fluid reservoir is normal, drive carefully to the nearest authorised Volvo workshop
to have the brake system checked.
If the brake fluid is under the MIN level in
the brake fluid reservoir, do not drive further
before topping up the brake fluid.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.
Emergency brake assistance – EBA
(Emergency brake assistance) In case of
sudden braking, full-strength braking is provided instantaneously. The EBA function
senses when heavy braking is underway by
registering how quickly the brake pedal is depressed. Continue braking without easing off
on the brake pedal. The function is suspended when the pressure on the brake pedal
eases. This function is always active and
cannot be disengaged.
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.
06 Starting and driving
Stability and traction control system
General
Reduced operation
The Dynamic Stability and Traction Control
system (DSTC) improves the car’s traction
and helps the driver to avoid skidding.
A pulsing sound may be noticed during braking or acceleration when the system is in action. The car may accelerate more slowly
than expected.
Active Yaw Control
The function limits the driving and brake
force of the wheels individually in order to
stabilise the car.
Spin Control
The function prevents the driving wheels
from spinning against the road surface during acceleration.
Traction control system
The function is active at low speed and transfers power from the driving wheel that is
spinning to the one that is not.
At the same time the symbol
illuminates
as a reminder that the system has been reduced. The system remains reduced until the
engine is next started.
WARNING
Suppressing system function may alter the
driving characteristics of the car.
NOTE
System operation during skidding and acceleration can be partially deactivated.
DSTC ON is shown for several seconds in
the display each time the engine is started.
Operation during skidding is delayed and so
allows more skidding which provides greater
freedom for dynamic driving.
Messages in the information display
Traction in deep snow or sand is improved as
acceleration is no longer limited.
Operation
– Turn the thumbwheel (1) until the DSTC
menu appears.
DSTC ON means that the system function is
unchanged.
DSTC SPIN CONTROL OFF means that system operation is reduced.
– Press and hold RESET (2) until the DSTC
menu is changed.
TRACTION CONTROL TEMPORARILY OFF
means that the system has been temporarily
reduced due to excessive brake temperature. The function is reactivated automatically when the brakes have cooled.
06
DSTC SERVICE REQUIRED means that the
system has been disabled due to a fault.
– Stop the car in a safe place and turn off
the engine.
If the message remains when the engine is

Parking assistance (option)
General1
Parking assistance front and rear.
Parking assistance is used as an aid to parking. A signal indicates the distance to a detected object.
WARNING
Parking assistance does not relinquish the
driver’s own responsibility during parking.
The sensors have blind spots where objects
cannot be detected. Be aware of children
and animals near the car.
1
Depending on the market, the Parking assistance system may be either standard, an option or an accessory.
Function
The system is activated automatically when
the car is started and the text message Park
Assist active, Exit to deactivate is shown on
the audio system display.
Parking assistance is active at speeds below
15 km/h. The system is deactivated at higher
speeds. The system is reactivated when the
speed falls below 10 km/h again.
The frequency of the signal increases as you
come closer to an object in front of or behind
the car. If the volume of another sound
source from the audio system is high, this is
automatically muted.
The tone becomes constant at a distance of
about 30 cm. If there are objects within this
distance behind or in front of the car, the signal alternates between left and right-hand
speakers.
Rear parking assistance
The distance covered to the rear of the car is
about 1.5 m. Rear parking assistance is activated when reverse gear is engaged. If the
system is switched off, the audio system display shows the text Park Assist deactivated
Enter to activate as soon as reverse gear is
engaged. The signal comes from the rear
loudspeakers.
The system must be deactivated when reversing with a trailer, or bike carrier on the
towbar or similar. Otherwise the trailer or bike
carrier would trigger the sensors.
Rear parking assistance is deactivated automatically when towing a trailer if a Volvo genuine trailer cable is used.
Front parking assistance2
The distance covered to the front of the car is
about 0.8 metres. The signal comes from the
front loudspeakers.
Front parking assistance cannot be combined with extra lights because the sensors
are affected by the extra lights.
Fault indicator
If the information symbol illuminates
with constant glow and PARK ASSIST SERVICE REQUIRED is shown
on the information display then
parking assistance is disengaged.

Blind spots
The system is designed to work most effectively when driving in dense traffic on multilane highways.
BLIS is based on digital camera technology.
The cameras (1) are fitted under the door mirrors.
When a camera has detected a vehicle inside
the blind spot zone the indicator lamp (2) illuminates with a constant glow.
NOTE

WARNING
The system is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style and use
of the rearview mirrors. It can never replace
the driver’s attention and responsibility. The
responsibility for changing lanes safely always rests with the driver.
BLIS is an information system that under certain conditions can help to draw the driver’s
The lamp illuminates on the side of the car
where the system has detected the vehicle.
If the car is overtaken on both sides at the
same time then both lamps illuminate.
BLIS advises the driver with a message if a
fault arises in the system. If for example the
system’s cameras are obscured then the
BLIS indicator lamp flashes and the information display shows a message. In such cases, check and clean the lenses. If necessary,
the system can be switched off temporarily

Cleaning
In order to work most effectively the BLIS
camera lenses must be clean. The lenses can
be cleaned with a soft cloth or damp sponge.
Clean the lenses carefully so that they are not
scratched.
IMPORTANT
The lenses are electrically heated to melt ice

Blind Spot Information System BLIS (option)
When BLIS operates
The system is active when the car is driven at
a speed above 10 km/h.
Overtaking
The system is designed to react if you overtake at a speed of up to 10 km/h faster than
the overtaken vehicle.
The system is designed to react if you are
overtaken by a vehicle travelling up to
70 km/h faster than your vehicle.
WARNING
06
BLIS does not work in sharp bends.
BLIS does not work when the car is reversing.
A wide trailer coupled to the car can conceal other vehicles in adjacent lanes. It can
prevent the vehicle in the screened area
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.
In darkness the system reacts to the headlamps of surrounding vehicles. Vehicles with
headlamps that are switched off are not de-
130
tected by the system. This means for example that the system does not react to a trailer
without headlamps which is towed behind a
car or truck.
Activating/deactivating
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 on the
information display.
When driving in such conditions system
performance may be temporarily reduced
and a text message is shown, see
page 131.
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.

Towing and recovery
Never tow the car to bump start it
Jump start the car with a donor battery if the
battery is flat and the engine does not start.
Do not bump start the car.
IMPORTANT
Bump starting the car can damage the catalytic converter.
Towing
Find out the highest legal speed for towing
before towing the car.
06
– Unlock the steering wheel lock so that the
car can be steered.
– Bear in mind that the brake and power
steering servos do not function when the
engine is off. Approx. five times more
pressure must be exerted on the brake
pedal and steering requires much more
force than usual.
– Drive gently. Keep the towline taut to
avoid unnecessary jerking.
Automatic gearbox:
– Move the gear selector to position N.
Cars with automatic gearbox must not be
towed at speeds above 80 km/h or further
than 80 km. The car must always be towed
132
facing forward. The engine cannot be bump
started. "Jump starting", see page 134.
Manual gearbox:
– Move gear lever into neutral.
– Ensure the towrope is always taut to avoid
violent jerks. Keep your foot on the brake
pedal.
WARNING
The steering lock stays in the position it was
in when the power was cut off. The steering
lock must be unlocked before towing.
The ignition key must be in position II.
Never remove the ignition key from the ignition switch while driving or when the car is
being towed.
WARNING
The brake servo and power steering do not
work when the engine is switched off. The
brake pedal must be pressed about five
times harder than normal, and the steering
will be considerably heavier than normal.
Recovery
If only partially raised, cars with automatic
gearbox must not be transported at speeds
above 80 km/h or further than 80 km. During
such transport, the wheels must always roll
forward.
06 Starting and driving
Towing and recovery
Towing eye
The towing eye is in the tool kit in the cargo
area. You must screw the towing eye into
place before towing. The socket and cover
for the towing eye are on the right-hand side
of each bumper.
Remove the cover as follows:
– Release the bottom edge of the cover (A)
with a coin.
– Screw in the towing eye (B) firmly
– Screw in firmly, right up to the flange (C).
You can use a wheel brace.
After use, unscrew the towing eye and refit
the cover.
The towing eye may only be used for towing
on roads, not for recovery after driving into a
ditch or the like. Professional help should be
called for recovery.
06
IMPORTANT
The towing eye cannot be fitted in the rear
bracket on cars with towbar. In which case,
secure the tow rope in the towbar. For this
reason, it is advisable to always store the
detachable towbar in the car.

06 Starting and driving
Start assistance
Starting with a donor battery
06
If the battery in the car has become flat, you
can "borrow" electric current from either a
separate battery or the battery in another car.
Always make sure the crocodile clips on the
jump leads are attached securely to eliminate
sparks during the start attempt.
When jump starting the car, the following
steps are recommended to avoid risk of explosion:
– Turn the ignition key to position 0.
– Ensure that the donor battery is 12 volt.
– If the donor battery is in another car,
switch off the engine in the other car and
ensure that the cars do not touch one
another.
134
– Connect the red jump lead between the
positive terminal on the donor battery (1+)
and the positive terminal in your car (2+).
– Connect one end of the black jump lead to
the donor battery’s negative terminal (3–).
– Connect the other end of the black jump
lead to the earthing point (4–) by the lefthand strut tower.
– Start the engine of the "donor car". Let the
engine run a few minutes at a speed
slightly higher than idle 1500 rpm.
– Start the engine of the car with the flat
battery.
– Remove the jump leads, first the black and
then the red. Ensure that neither of the
black jump lead’s clips comes into contact
with the battery’s positive terminal or the
crocodile clip on the red jump lead.
IMPORTANT
Do not touch the crocodile clips during the
start attempt. This could cause sparks.
WARNING
The battery can generate oxyhydrogen gas,
which is highly explosive. One spark, which
can be generated if you connect the jump
leads 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.
06 Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
General
The load capacity is affected by extra accessories mounted on the car, such as a towbar,
load carriers, space box, the passengers’
combined weight etc. as well as towball load.
The load capacity of the car is reduced by
the number of passengers and their weight.
If the towing bracket is fitted by an authorised Volvo workshop, then the car is delivered with the necessary equipment for driving with a trailer.
• The car’s towing bracket must be of an
approved type.
• If the towbar is retrofitted, check with your
Volvo dealer that the car is fully equipped
for driving with a trailer.
• Distribute the load on the trailer so that the
weight on the towing bracket follows the
specified maximum towball load.
• Increase the tyre pressure to the recommended pressure for a full load. For tyre
pressure decal location, see page 156.
• Clean the towbar regularly and grease the
towball1.
• Do not drive with a heavy trailer when your
car is brand new. Wait until it has been
driven at least 1000 km.
• The brakes are loaded much more than
usual on long and steep downhill slopes.
Downshift to a lower gear and adjust your
speed.
• The engine is loaded more heavily than
usual when driving with a trailer.
• The engine and gearbox can overheat if
the car is driven with a heavy load in hot
weather. If the temperature gauge for the
engine’s cooling system goes into the red
zone, stop and let the engine idle for a few
minutes. The automatic gearbox responds
through a built-in protection system. See
the message on the information display. If
the car overheats, the air conditioning may
be switched off temporarily.
• In the interests of safety, speed should be
restricted to 80 km/h, even if the laws of
certain countries allow for higher speeds.
• Move the gear selector to parking
position P when parking an automatic car
with a hitched trailer. Always use the parking brake. Block the wheels with chocks
when parking a car with hitched trailer on
a hill.
Trailer weights
Information on permitted trailer weights, see
page 243.
WARNING
Follow the stated recommendations for
trailer weights. Otherwise, the rig may be
difficult to control during evasive manoeuvres and braking.
NOTE
The stated maximum permitted trailer
weights are those permitted by Volvo. National vehicle regulations can further limit
trailer weights and speeds. Towbars can be
certified for higher towing weights than the
car can actually tow.

to what applies to your car if you have a retrofitted towbar.
Parking on a hill
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Move the gear selector to park
position P.
06
Starting on a hill
1. Move the gear selector to driving
position D.
2. Release the parking brake (foot brake
pedal).
Steep inclines
• Select an appropriate manual gear position when climbing steep inclines or at low
speeds. This prevents the gearbox from
changing up and keeps the gearbox oil
cooler.
• Do not use a higher manual gear than the
engine can "handle". It is not always economical to drive in high gears.
136
• Avoid driving with a trailer on inclines of
more than 15 %.
Assisted starting with a trailer
Cars equipped with a V8 engine have an integrated function which reduces the risk of significant jerking and wheelspin when starting
with a trailer hitched to the car.
Activating
To activate, the cables from the trailer must
be connected to the trailer socket which is
fitted beside the towbar, see page 137.
Deactivating
Unplug the cables from the electrical socket.
NOTE
The function is also activated when any other electrical equipment is plugged into the
trailer socket, and the car then accelerates
more gently when pulling away.
Levelling (option on cars seating five,
standard on cars seating seven)
If your car is equipped with automatic levelling, the rear suspension always retains the
correct ride height regardless of load. When
the car is stationary, the rear suspension
sinks. This is completely normal. When starting with a load, the level is pumped up after a
certain distance.
06 Starting and driving
Towing equipment
Towbar
Trailer cable
The towball must be cleaned and greased
regularly. If a towball hitch with vibration
damper is used, it is not necessary to grease
the towball.
If the car is equipped with a detachable towbar, the towball mounting instructions must
be followed carefully, see page 139.
WARNING
Be sure to attach the trailer’s safety cable to
the correct place.
WARNING
If the car is fitted with a Volvo detachable
towbar:
• Follow the assembly instructions for the
towball section carefully.
• The towball section must be locked with
the key before setting off.
• Check that the indicator window shows
green.
An adapter is required if the car’s towbar has
13 pin electrics and the trailer has 7 pin
electrics. Use an adapter cable approved by
Volvo. Make sure the cable does not drag on
the ground.

tighten up to the mark on the torque wrench
(equivalent to 6 Nm). See illustration.
The load capacity is affected by extra accessories mounted on the car, such as towbar,
towball load, load carriers, space box etc.
and the passengers’ combined weight. The
load capacity of the car is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight. For
information on permitted weights, see
page 243.
WARNING
The car’s driving characteristics change depending on how heavily it is loaded and how
the load is distributed.
06
Make sure the load carrier is placed in the
right direction on the roof rails. Load carriers
can be positioned anywhere along the roof
rails. When driving without a load, the front
load carrier should be positioned 200 mm in
front of the centre rail foot and the rear load
carrier centred between the centre and rear
rail foot (see illustration) to minimise wind
noise. The longer load carrier should be in
the front.
WARNING
The car’s centre of gravity and driving characteristics are altered by roof loads.

Loading
Load carrier cover
• Remember that the car’s centre of gravity
and driving characteristics change if you
have a load on the roof.
• Keep in mind that the car’s wind resistance and fuel consumption increase in
proportion to the size of the load.
• Drive gently. Avoid quick accelerations,
heavy braking and taking curves hard.
WARNING
Load no more than 100 kg on the roof, inclusive of the load carriers or space box.
The car’s centre of gravity and driving characteristics are altered by roof loads.
Use the end of the torque wrench (see illustration) or the ignition key to loosen or secure
the cover. Rotate ¼ turn.

06
• To avoid damaging your car and to
achieve the best level of safety when
driving, we recommend that you only use
load carriers that Volvo has specially designed for your car.
• Check periodically that the load carriers

07 Wheels and tyres
General
Driving characteristics and tyres
Speed ratings
New tyres
The 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.
The car has "Whole Vehicle Type Approval",
which means that dimensions and speed ratings must not differ from those specified on
the vehicle’s registration document. The only
exception to these conditions is winter tyres
(both those with studs and those without). If
such a tyre is chosen, the car must not be
driven faster than the speed rating of the tyre
(for example, class Q can be driven at a maximum of 160 km/h).
Tyres are perishable. After a
few years they begin to
harden at the same time as
the friction capacity/characteristics gradually deteriorate. Therefore aim to get
as fresh 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.
When changing tyres, ensure that tyres of the
same type and dimensions, and preferably
also the same make, are fitted to all four
wheels. Follow the recommended tyre pressures specified on the tyre pressure label,
see page 155.
Designation of dimensions

Tyre age
All tyres older than six years should be
checked by an expert even if they seem undamaged. The reason for this is that tyres
age and decompose, even if they are hardly
ever or never used. The function can therefore be affected due to the tyre’s constituent
materials being broken down. In such a case
the tyre should then not be used. 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.
The age of the tyre can be determined by the
DOT marking, see illustration above.

07 Wheels and tyres
General
More even wear and maintenance
Tyres with tread wear indicators
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.
Winter tyres
The correct tyre pressure results in more
even wear, see page 156. 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 5000 km and
then at intervals of 10000 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.
Volvo recommends winter tyres with particular dimensions. These are stated on the tyre
pressure label, see page 155 for its location.
The tyre dimensions are dependent on the
engine variant. When driving on winter tyres,
these must be fitted to all four wheels.
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 lifespan.
NOTE
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. It is
therefore not recommended to drive on winter tyres that have a tread depth of less than
four mm.
Snow chains
Snow chains may only be used on the front
wheels. This also applies to all-wheel-drive
cars.
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 .
07
IMPORTANT
Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent chains designed for the correct car
model, and tyre and rim dimensions. Consult an authorised Volvo workshop

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. 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 should always rotate in the same direction throughout
its lifespan. Tyres should only be switched

NOTE
Tyre pressure decreases over time, this is a
natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure also
varies depending on ambient temperature.
The tyre pressure label on the driver’s side
door pillar shows which pressures the tyres
should have at different loads and speed
conditions.
Stated on the decal:
• Tyre pressure for the car’s recommended
wheel size
• ECO pressure
• Spare wheel pressure (Temporary Spare).
Even after several kilometres of driving the
tyres warm up and the pressure increases, so
air must not be released if the pressure is
checked when the tyres are warm, while the
pressure must be increased if it is too low. Inadequately inflated tyres adversely affect fuel
consumption, tyre lifespan and the car’s
roadholding. Driving on tyres with tyre pressure that is too low can also result in the tyres
overheating and disintegrating.
For information on the correct tyre pressure,
refer to the tyre pressure table on page 156.
("Cold tyres" means the tyres are the same
temperature as the ambient temperature.)
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.
07
Tyre pressure affects travelling comfort, road
noise and steering characteristics.

IMPORTANT
The car must never be driven fitted with
more than one "Temporary Spare" wheel.
– Pack everything in reverse order.
Make sure that the warning triangle with case
is securely fastened in the compartment.
Spare wheel Temporary Spare
The spare wheel2 is only intended to be used
for the short time it takes to get the normal
wheel replaced or repaired. Replace the
spare wheel as soon as possible with a normal wheel. The car’s handling may be altered
by the use of the spare wheel.
Follow the regulations in force for the use of a
warning triangle1 in the country in which you
are driving.
Use the warning triangle as follows:
By law, it is only legal to use the spare wheel/
tyre temporarily in connection with damage
to a tyre. A wheel/tyre of this type should be
replaced with a normal wheel/tyre as soon as
possible.
– Detach the warning triangle case. It is held
in place with a Velcro strap.
– Remove the warning triangle from its
case (A).
– Fold out the four support legs on the

Tyre pressure monitoring (option)
General
Tyre pressure monitoring, TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) warns the driver
when the pressure is too low in one or more
of the car’s tyres. It uses sensors located inside the air valve in each wheel. When the car
is driven at approximately 40 km/h the system detects the tyre pressure. If the pressure
is too low then a warning lamp on the dashboard illuminates and a message is shown in
the information display.
Always check the system after changing a
wheel in order to ensure that replacement
wheels work with the system.
For information on correct tyre pressure, see
page 155 and 156.
The TPMS system does not replace normal
tyre maintenance.
IMPORTANT
07
162
If a fault should arise in the tyre pressure
system a warning lamp on the dashboard
will illuminate. The message TYRE PRESS.
SYST SERVICE REQUIRED will be shown.
This can be for various reasons, e.g. fitting a
wheel not equipped with a sensor adapted
for Volvo’s tyre pressure monitoring system.
Adjusting tyre pressure monitoring
Tyre pressure monitoring can be adjusted in
order to follow Volvo’s tyre pressure recommendations, when driving with a heavy load
for example.

TPMS sensors in the valves.
• The temporary spare wheel does not have
this sensor.
• If wheels without TPMS sensors are used
then TYRE PRESS. SYST SERVICE REQUIRED will be shown every time the car
is driven faster than 40 km/h for more than
10 minutes.
• Volvo recommends that TPMS sensors
are fitted to all wheels on the car (summer
and winter wheels).

Emergency puncture repair
General
NOTE
The emergency puncture repair kit is only
intended for sealing tyres with a puncture in
the tread.
The emergency puncture repair kit has limited abilities to seal tyres which have punctures in the wall of the tyre. Do not seal tyres
with the emergency puncture repair kit if they
have larger slits, cracks or similar damage.
Cars seating five, the illustration shows variant 1
of the emergency puncture repair kit
Cars seating seven, the illustration shows variant
1 of the emergency puncture repair kit
The emergency puncture repair kit with compressor and tools are found under the floor in
the cargo area.
The emergency puncture repair kit1 is used
to seal the puncture and 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. For information on replacement, see page 168 for variant 1 or page 172
for variant 2.

08 Car care
Cleaning
Washing the car
Wash the car as soon as it becomes dirty.
Use car shampoo. Dirt and road salt can lead
to corrosion.
• Do not park the car in direct sunshine.
Washing a car with hot paintwork can
cause permanent paintwork damage.
Wash the car in a car wash with waste
water separator.
• Thoroughly rinse dirt off the underbody of
the car.
• Rinse the entire car to remove loose dirt.
When using a pressure washer: Make sure
that the nozzle of the pressure washer is
not closer than 30 cm to the bodywork. Do
not spray directly at the locks.
• Wash using a sponge, car shampoo and
plenty of lukewarm water.
• If the dirt is difficult to dislodge, wash the
car using a cold degreasing agent.
• Dry the car using a clean, soft chamois or
a water scraper.
• Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
soap solution or car shampoo.
WARNING
08
176
Always have the engine cleaned by a workshop. There is a risk of fire if the engine is
hot.
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 when it
has been switched on for a time.
Removing bird droppings
Wash bird droppings off the paintwork as
soon as possible. Bird droppings contain
chemicals that affect and discolour paintwork very quickly. This discoloration can only
be removed by a specialist.
Automatic car washes
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick
way of washing the car, but it can never replace a proper handwashing. The brushes of
an automatic car wash cannot reach
everywhere.
WARNING
Always test the brakes after washing the car
to ensure that moisture and corrosion do
not attack the brake pads and reduce braking performance.
IMPORTANT
Washing by hand is gentler to the paintwork
than an automatic car wash. Paintwork is
also more sensitive when it is new. For this
reason, handwashing is recommended during the first few months with a new car.
Press the brake pedal lightly from time to
time if driving for long periods in rain or slush.
This heats and dries the brake pads. You
should also do this when you begin driving in
extremely damp or cold weather.
Exterior plastic parts
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo dealers, is recommended for cleaning exterior plastic parts. Never use strong stain removers.
08 Car care
Cleaning
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 marks 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 treatment is not covered by
Volvo warranty.

three years and then each year.
Cleaning the interior
Treating stains on fabric upholstery
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo dealers, is recommended for cleaning the
fabric upholstery. Other chemicals can impair
the fire retardant qualities of the upholstery.
IMPORTANT
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage the
fabric upholstery.
Treating stains on leather upholstery
Volvo’s leather upholstery is equipped with
surface protection against dirt. Cleaning reprotects the leather but grease and dirt dissolves the surface protection. There is a
comprehensive programme for the care and
maintenance of leather upholstery. Volvo offers a leather product for cleaning and treating the upholstery by which means the leather regains its protective layer.
IMPORTANT
Never use strong solvents. Such products
may damage fabric, vinyl and leather upholstery.

Touching up paintwork
Paintwork
Stone chips and scratches
Paint is an important part of the car’s rustproofing and should therefore be checked
regularly. To avoid the onset of rust, damaged paintwork must be rectified immediately. The most common types of paintwork
damage are stone chips, scratches, and
marks on the edges of wings and doors.
Colour code
Before touching up paintwork, the car must
be clean and dry and at a temperature
above 15 °C.
Data plate
It is important that the correct colour is used.
The colour code number (1) is shown on the
data plate, see page 242.
coat, you can paint straight after cleaning the
damaged area.
If the stone chip has penetrated to the
bare metal
– Fasten a piece of masking tape over the
damaged surface. Then remove the tape,
removing any paint residue.
– Stir the primer well and apply using a fine
brush or matchstick. Apply paint using a
brush once the primer is dry.
– For scratches, proceed as above, but
mask around the damaged area to protect
the undamaged paintwork.
– After a few days, polish the touched-up
areas. Use a soft rag and a small amount
of lapping paste.

Rustproofing
Inspection and maintenance
Your 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. And, a thin, penetrating rustproofing fluid was sprayed into the
members, cavities and closed sections.
Maintaining the car’s rustproofing.
• Keep the car clean. Hose down the underbody. If using a pressure washer, keep the
nozzle at least 30 cm from the painted
surfaces.
• Regularly check and touch-up the rustproofing treatment as necessary.
The car’s rustproofing does not normally require treatment for approximately12 years.
After that time, it should be treated at three
year intervals. If the car requires treatment,
consult an authorised Volvo workshop.
08
180
Repair
If you want to repair the rustproofing yourself, make sure the area is clean and dry.
Hose down, wash and dry the car thoroughly.
Use a rustproofing agent in a spray can or
one that is intended for brush application.
There are two different types of rustproofing
agents:
• thin (colourless), for visible areas
• thick, for areas prone to wear on the
underbody.
Possible repair areas with these agents:
• Visible welds and sheet metal joints; thin
fluid
• Underbody - thick fluid
• Door hinges - thin fluid
• Bonnet hinges and catch - thin fluid
Once you have finished treatment, excess
rustproofing can be wiped off with a rag
dipped in a recommended cleaning agent.
Parts of the engine and suspension strut
mountings in the engine compartment are
treated at the factory with a wax-based, colourless rustproofing. This withstands normal
detergents without dissolving and losing its
rustproofing ability.
If you wash the engine using aromatic solvents, such as turpentine or white spirit (especially those that do not contain emulsifiers), the protective wax should be renewed
after washing. Your Volvo dealer handles
such waxes.

Before the car left the factory, it was thoroughly test driven. It was checked again in
accordance with Volvo Car Corporation regulations before it was handed over to you.
The incorrect connection and installation of
accessories can negatively affect the car’s
electrical system. Certain accessories only
function when the appropriate software has
been programmed into the car’s electrical
system. Always contact an authorised Volvo
workshop before installing accessories
which are connected to or affect the electrical system.
To keep your Volvo as safe and reliable as
possible, follow the Volvo service programme specified in the Service and Warranty Booklet. Have an authorised Volvo workshop carry out service and maintenance
work. Volvo workshops have the personnel,
special tools and service literature to guarantee the highest quality of service.
IMPORTANT
For the Volvo warranty to apply, check and
follow the instructions in the Service and
Warranty Booklet.
Special service measures
Certain service measures, which affect the
car’s electrical system, can only be performed using electronic equipment specially
developed for your car. Always contact an
authorised Volvo workshop before beginning
or performing service work that affects the

Self-maintenance
Before starting work on the car
Battery
Check that the battery cables are correctly
connected and tightened.
Never disconnect the battery when the engine is running (e.g. if replacing the battery).
Never use a quick charger to charge the battery. The battery cables must be disconnected when charging the battery.
The battery contains acid that is both corrosive and toxic. Handle the battery in an environmentally-suitable way. Let your Volvo
dealer assist you.
WARNING
High voltage output from the ignition system. The voltage in the ignition system is
dangerous. The ignition must therefore always be switched off for work in the engine
compartment.
Do not touch the spark plugs or ignition
coils when the ignition is on or the engine is
hot.
Check regularly
09
Lifting the car
Check the following at regular intervals, for
example, when refuelling:
• Coolant – The level must be between the
MIN and MAX marks on the expansion
tank.
• Engine oil – The level must be between the
MIN and MAX marks.
• Power steering fluid – The level must be
between the MIN and MAX marks.
• Washer fluid – The reservoir should be well
filled. Use washer antifreeze at temperatures around freezing.
• Brake and clutch fluid – The level must be
between the MIN and MAX marks.
WARNING
Bear in mind that the radiator fan may start
automatically some time after the engine
has been switched off.
Always have the engine cleaned by a workshop. There is a risk of fire if the engine is
hot.
If the car is lifted with a workshop jack; position the jack with the front edge on the subframe.
Do not damage the splashguard under the
engine. Ensure that the jack is positioned so
that the car cannot slide off. Always use axle

Diesel
Fuel system
Diesel engines are sensitive to contaminants.
Only use diesel fuel from a well-known producers. Never use diesel of dubious quality,
see page 249. Special diesel fuel designed
for low temperatures around freezing point is
also 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.
09
Draining condensation from the fuel
filter
IMPORTANT
Diesel type fuels which must not be used:
special additives, Marine Diesel Fuel, fuel
oil, RME (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.
The fuel filter separates condensation from
the fuel. Condensation can disrupt engine
operation.
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
IMPORTANT
For model year 2006 or later the sulphur
content must be a maximum of 50 ppm.
Certain special additives remove the water
separation in the fuel filter.
Empty tank
No special procedures are required if the
tank is run dry. The fuel system is bled automatically if the ignition switch is kept in
position II for approx. 60 seconds before the
start attempt.

Checking the engine oil and oil filter
Volvo recommends
oil products.
Change the oil and replace the oil filter in accordance with the intervals specified in the
Service and Warranty Booklet.
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT
Always use oil of the prescribed grade, see
the engine compartment decal. Check the
oil level frequently and change the oil regularly. The engine will be damaged if lower
grade oil is used or if the car is driven with
the oil level too low.
Using oil of a higher than specified grade is
permitted. Volvo recommends using an oil of
a higher grade than that specified on the decal for adverse driving conditions. See
page 245.
188
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.
Volvo uses different systems for warning of
low oil level or low oil pressure. Certain variants have an oil pressure sensor, and then a
lamp is used for oil pressure. 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 an authorised Volvo dealer for more
information.
Checking the oil level in a new car is especially important before the first scheduled oil
change. The Service and Warranty Booklet
specifies the odometer readings for oil
changes.
Volvo recommends checking the oil level
every 2 500 km. 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.
09 Maintenance and service
Oils and fluids
Checking the oil
The oil level must be within the area marked on
the dipstick
Checking the oil in a cold engine:
– Wipe the dipstick clean before checking
the level.
– Check the oil level using the dipstick. The
oil level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks.
– If the level is close to the MIN mark, start
by topping up with 0.5 litres of oil. Top up
until the oil level is nearer the MAX than
the MIN mark on the dipstick. See
page 245–246 for capacities.
Checking the oil in a warm engine:
– 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.
– Wipe the dipstick clean before checking
the level.
– Check the oil level using the dipstick. The
oil level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks.
If the level is close to the MIN mark, start by
topping up with 0.5 litres of oil. Top up until
the oil level is nearer the MAX than the MIN
mark on the dipstick. See page 245–246 for
capacities.
WARNING
Do not spill oil onto the hot exhaust manifold due to the risk of fire.
IMPORTANT
Never fill above the MAX mark. Oil consumption may increase if too much oil is
poured into the engine.

Washer fluid, topping up
Location of washer fluid reservoir.
The windscreen and headlamp washers have
the same reservoir. Add frost protection in
the winter so that the fluid does not freeze in
the pump, reservoir and hoses. See capacities on page 247.

Checking and topping up the coolant
Check the coolant regularly
The level should lie between the MIN and
MAX marks on the expansion tank. If the
system is not filled sufficiently, high local
temperatures could occur, causing a risk of
damage (cracks) to the cylinder head. Top up
the coolant when the level falls to the MIN
mark.
Checking and topping up the brake
and clutch fluid
WARNING
The coolant may 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.
When topping up the coolant, follow the instructions on the packaging. It is important
that the mixture of coolant concentrate and
water is correct for the prevailing weather
conditions. Never top up with water only. The
risk of freezing increases with both too little
and too much coolant concentrate.
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.
NOTE
The engine must only be run with a wellfilled cooling system. High temperatures
can occur, causing a risk of damage
(cracks) to the cylinder head.
The brake and clutch fluid have a common
reservoir1. The fluid level must be between
the MIN and MAX marks. Check the level
regularly. Change the brake fluid every other
year or at every other regular service.
See the capacities and recommended fluid
grade on page 247.
The fluid should be changed annually on cars
driven in conditions requiring hard, frequent
braking, such as driving in mountains or

Fuses are housed in four different locations
in the car:
1. Relay/fuse box in the engine compartment.
2. Fuse box in the passenger compartment within the sound barrier on the
driver’s side.
202
3. Fuse box in the passenger compartment at dashboard end on driver’s
side.
4. Fuse box in cargo area.
If an electrical component or function does
not work, this may be because the component’s fuse was temporarily overloaded and
blew.
– Look in the fuse diagram to locate the
fuse.
– Pull out the fuse and check from the side
to see whether the curved wire has blown.
– If this is the case, replace it with a new
fuse of the same colour and amperage.
There are a number of spare fuses in the cover on the end of the dashboard. There are
also pliers which facilitate the removal and
fitting of fuses.
If the same fuse blows repeatedly, there is a
fault in the component. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop to have it checked.

Infotainment system

Infotainment is a system that integrates the
audio system and phone functions.
You can easily and conveniently use your Infotainment system by means of the joint control panel or the steering wheel keypad.
The XC90 can be equipped with Dolby Surround Pro Logic II (Premium Sound), which
offers an optimal sound experience very
close to being there with a broad, natural
sound profile.
The system also allows your passengers to
use headphones (option) with separate
sound sources.
Dolby Surround Pro Logic II
Dolby Surround Pro Logic II1 distributes the
two stereo audio channels to left, centre,
right and rear speakers. This provides a more
realistic sound quality than that provided by
standard two-channel stereo.
Dolby Surround Pro Logic II and

Engine oil
Adverse driving conditions
Viscosity chart
Check the oil level more frequently for long
journeys:
•
•
•
•
towing a caravan or trailer
in mountainous regions
at high speeds
in temperatures colder than –30 °C or
hotter than +40 °C.
This can produce abnormally high oil temperature or oil consumption.
Also check the oil level more often if the
car is often driven short distances (less than
10 km) when temperatures are low
(below +5 °C).
Choose a fully synthetic engine oil for adverse driving conditions. It provides extra
protection for the engine.
Volvo recommends
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
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.

Fuel
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 figures may change if the car is
equipped with extra equipment that affects
the car’s weight. The manner in which the car
is driven and other non-technical factors can
also affect fuel consumption. Consumption is
higher and power output lower for fuel with
an octane rating of 91 RON.
Petrol
IMPORTANT
Use only unleaded petrol to avoid damaging the catalytic converter. In order for the
Volvo warranty to apply, never mix alcohol
with petrol, the fuel system could be damaged.
11
Diesel
The diesel engine’s fuel system is sensitive to
contaminants, see page 187.
Diesel: Norm EN 590 or JIS K2204
Most engines can be run with octane ratings
of 91, 95 and 98 RON.
• 91 RON must not be used for 4-cylinder
engines and should only be used in exceptional cases with other engines.
• 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,
it is recommended to use fuel with the highest possible octane rating for optimum performance and fuel economy.
Petrol: Norm EN 228

Catalytic converter
General
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve
fuel economy.
11
The purpose of the catalytic converter is to
purify exhaust gases. It is located in the flow
of exhaust gases close to the engine so that
it quickly reaches operating temperature. The
catalytic converter consists of a monolith
(ceramic or metal) with channels. The channel 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.
250
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 injection
valves. The ratio of air to fuel 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).
