Introduction
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
describes options (factory fitted equipment)
and certain accessories (extra equipment).

NOTE! Volvo cars are adapted for the varying
requirements of different markets, as well as
for national or local legal requirements and
regulations.
The specifications, design features and illustrations in this owner’s manual are not binding. We reserve the right to make
modifications without prior notice.

Volvo Car Corporation 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 leads to continuous improvements
within the area of the environment.
EPI (Environmental Product Information) environmental product decla rations are supplied
for all Volvo models. You can now compare
the environmental impact of different models
and engines.

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.
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.
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption, see page 4.

Volvo Car Corporation and the environment
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
A sophisticated air cleaning system, IAQS1
(Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the
air in the passenger compartment is cleaner
than the air outside.
The system consists of an electronic sensor
and a carbon filter. The air intake is closed if
the level of reducing gases and oxidising
gases, e.g. carbon monoxide, becomes too
high, for example in heavy town traffic,
queues and tunnels. 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
healthy and safe – even for people with contact allergies and for asthma sufferers.
Extreme attention has been given to choosing
environmentally-compatible materials. This
means that they also fulfil the requirements of
the Öko-Tex 100 ecological standard – a
major advance towards a healthier cabin environment.
Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts, carpets, thread and fabrics for example. Even the
leather upholstery undergoes chromium-free

tanning with natural plant substances and
meets the requirements.
Volvo workshops and the
environment
Regular maintenance carried out by an
authorised Volvo workshop creates the conditions for long service life and low fuel consumption, and contributes 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 environmental demands regarding the way in which workshops are designed
in order to prevent spills and discharges into
the environment, and this includes the thorough collection and sorting of the gaseous,
liquid and solid waste that arises in our workshops. Our workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools required to guarantee
good environmental care.
Reducing environmental impact
You can help reduce environmental impact,
for example, 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:
• Ensure that your tyre pressures are correct. Poorly inflated tyres increase fuel
consumption. If any of the higher tyre
pressures recommended by Volvo are
used then fuel consumption decreases.
• Since a roof rack 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. Avoid unnecessary rapid
acceleration and heavy braking.
Volvo Car Corporation and the environment
• 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. Take your foot off the
accelerator and change down.
• Avoid idling. 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.
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
Tensioning the hip strap. The belt must be
positioned low down.
Always use a seatbelt
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure
that all passengers use their seatbelts. Otherwise, rear seat passengers may be thrown
forward against the backs of the front seats in
the event of a collision.
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,
feed the belt in by hand so that it does not
hang lose.
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.
Keep the following in mind:
• 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!
Each belt is intended for one person only.
10
WARNING!
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a
seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly,
this may diminish the protection provided
by the airbag in the event of a collision.
WARNING!
Never modify or repair the seatbelts yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop.
If the belt has been subjected to a major
load, such as in a collision, the entire belt
must be replaced. Some of the protective
characteristics of the belt may have been
lost, even if it appears to be undamaged.
Replace the seatbelt if the belt is worn or
damaged. The new seatbelt must be typeapproved and intended for installation in
the same position as the replaced belt.
Safety
Seatbelts
NOTE! The seatbelt reminder is intended for
an adult sitting in the front seat. If a belt-fitted
child seat is fitted in the front seat, the
seatbelt reminder does not switch on.
Seatbelts and pregnancy
Seatbelt reminder
The seatbelt warning symbol in the combined
instrument panel and above the rearview
mirror comes on until the driver and front seat
passenger buckle their seatbelts. The seatbelt reminder switches off after 6 seconds if
speed is below 10 km/h. If the driver or front
seat passenger have not buckled their seatbelts, the reminder switches on if speed
exceeds 10 km/h and switches off if speed
drops below 5 km/h.
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
belly. The lap section should lay flat over the
thighs and as low as possible under the belly.
– 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.
Seatbelts and pregnancy.
As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers
should adjust their seats and steering wheel
such that they can easily maintain control of
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 belly
and the steering wheel.
If the seatbelt is released, the function reactivates when speed exceeds 10 km/h.
11
Safety
Seatbelts
Label on seatbelts with seatbelt tensioner.
Seatbelt tensioner
All the seatbelts 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.
12
Safety
Airbag system
As well as the warning
symbol, a message appears in
the information display. If the
warning symbol malfunctions,
the warning triangle comes on
and the message SRS
AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT
appears in the display.
Contact an authorised Volvo
workshop immediately.
WARNING!
Warning symbol in combined
instrument panel
The Airbag system1 is monitored continuously by the control module and there is a
warning lamp in the combined instrument
panel. This lamp comes on when the ignition
key is turned to position I, II or III. The
symbol goes out after about seven seconds if
the Airbag system1 is working correctly.
1.
If the warning symbol for the Airbag system remains on or comes on while driving,
it means that the Airbag system is not
functioning fully. The symbol can indicate
a fault in the seatbelt buckle, SIPS, SRS
or IC system. Contact an authorised Volvo
workshop immediately.

Safety
Airbags (SRS)
WARNING!
Never place a child in a child seat or on a
booster cushion in the front seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated1.
Never allow a child to stand or sit in front
of the front passenger seat. No one
shorter than 140 cm should sit in the front
passenger seat if the airbag (SRS) is
activated.
Failure to follow the advice given above
can endanger the life of the child.
1. For information on activated/deactivated
airbag (SRS) see page 17.
Airbag (SRS) on the driver’s side
Passenger airbag (SRS)
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 passenger airbag1 is fitted behind a
panel above the glovebox. This panel is
marked SRS AIRBAG.
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!
To minimise the risk of injury if the airbag
deploys, passengers must sit as upright
as possible with their feet on the floor and
backs against the backrest. Seatbelts
must be secured.

the car is ordered.
Safety
Airbags (SRS)
WARNING!
Repairs must only be performed by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Work on the SRS system can cause
malfunction and result in serious personal
injury.
SRS system, left-hand drive.
SRS system, right-hand drive.
SRS system
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.
The airbag is equipped with a gas generator.
A sufficiently violent collision trips sensors
and ignites the gas generator, inflating the
airbag 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.
NOTE! The airbags have a function whereby
their capacities are adapted to the collision
force to which the vehicle is subjected.

of the dashboard and is accessible when the
passenger door is open. Check that the
switch is in the required position. Volvo recommends that that the ignition key is used to
change position. (Other items with a shape
similar to a key can be used).
The airbag (SRS) for the front passenger
seat can be deactivated using a switch. This
is necessary if a child seat is to be placed
there for example.
Indicator
A text message in the rearview mirror indicates that the passenger airbag (SRS) is
deactivated.
Deactivated airbag (passenger seat):
No one taller than 140 cm should ever sit
in the front passenger seat when the
airbag is deactivated.
Failure to follow the advice given above
can endanger life.
WARNING!
If the car is equipped with a front passenger airbag (SRS), but does not have
PACOS, the airbag will always be
activated.
17
Safety
Activating/deactivating the airbag (SRS)
WARNING!
Do not allow anyone to sit in the front passenger seat if the text message in the roof
panel indicates that the airbag (SRS) is
deactivated and the airbag warning symbol is displayed in the combined instrument panel. This indicates that there has
been a severe malfunction. Contact an
authorised Volvo workshop as soon as
possible.

Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
WARNING!
Do not put objects in the area between
the outside of the seat and the door panel,
since this area is required by the side
airbag.
WARNING!
Use only Volvo genuine car seat covers, or
seat covers approved by Volvo. Other
seat covers may impede the operation of
the side air bags.
Side airbag locations.
Inflated side airbag.
Child seats and side airbags
Side airbags – SIPS bag
A large proportion of the collision force is
transferred by the SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) to the floor, roof, beams, pillars,
and other structural parts of the body. The
side airbags on 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.
WARNING!
Side airbags are a supplement to the
SIPS system. Always wear a seatbelt.
WARNING!
Repairs must only be performed by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Work on the SIPS system can cause
malfunction and result in serious personal
injury.
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.
1.
For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS) see page 17.

Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
Left-hand drive.
SIPS bags
The side airbag is equipped with a gas generator. A sufficiently violent collision trips the
sensors and ignites the gas generator, inflating the side airbag. The airbag inflates
between the occupant and the door panel
and thereby cushions the initial impact while
deflating. The side airbag is only normally
deployed on the side of the collision.
20
Right-hand drive.
Safety
Inflatable Curtain (IC)
Properties
The inflatable curtain, IC (Inflatable Curtain),
is a supplement to the SIPS system. It is concealed 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 a sufficiently violent collision. When deployed, 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.
21
Safety
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.
WARNING!
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.
22
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!
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.
Safety
WHIPS
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
seats appear to be undamaged. Contact
an authorised Volvo workshop to have the
system checked even after a minor rearend collision.
Do not obstruct the WHIPS
system
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!

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.
NOTE! The SRS, SIPS, IC and belt tensioner
systems are deployed only once during a
collision.
24
WARNING!
The Airbag control unit 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.

Safety
Child safety
Fitting a child seat
Volvo has child safety products that are
designed for and tested by Volvo.
When using other products that are available
on the market, it is important to read the fitting
instructions included with the product.
• Do not attach the straps for the child seat
to the horizontal adjustment bar, springs,
rails or beams under the seat. Sharp
edges can damage the straps.
• Allow the back of the child seat to rest
against the dashboard. This applies to
cars without a passenger airbag, or
where the airbag is deactivated.
WARNING!
Never place the child seat in the front seat
if the car is equipped with an activated1
front passenger airbag. If problems arise
when fitting child safety products, contact
the manufacturer for clearer instructions.

Cars with ECC
Actual temperature
The temperature you select corresponds to
the physical experience with reference to air
speed, humidity, exposure to sun, etc. which
affect the interior and exterior of the car.
Sensors
The sun sensor is on the upper portion of the
dashboard. Remember not to cover it. Do not
cover the passenger compartment temperature sensor on the climate control panel.
Side windows and sunroof
To ensure that the air conditioning works satisfactorily, close all side windows and the
sunroof (if fitted). Also, make sure the air
ducts in the parcel shelf are not blocked.
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
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.

Preparations
The seat is usually adjusted when the ignition
key is in position I or II. It can also be
adjusted within 4.5 minutes of unlocking the
door with the key or remote control. If the
door is closed but the ignition key has not yet
been inserted in the ignition switch or is in
position 0 in the ignition switch, settings can
be made within 40 seconds of closing the
door.
Memory function in the remote
control (option)
If the setting of the seat is changed, the new
setting is saved in the remote control used to
lock the car. The next time the car is unlocked
using that remote control and the driver’s
door is opened within five minutes, the
driver’s seats and door mirrors assume the
stored positions.
Seat adjustment
The switches can be used to make the
following adjustments:
1. Front edge of seat cushion up/down
2. Seat forward/rearward
3. Seat up/down
4. Backrest rake
The seat can be moved in one direction at a

Interior
Cargo area
WARNING!
The driving characteristics of the car
change based on its kerb weight and how
heavily it is loaded.
Carrier bag holder (option)
Open the hatch in the cargo compartment.
Hang or secure your grocery bags using the
tensioning strap.
General
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 carrier, space box, etc., are included in
the kerb weight.
The payload of the car is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight.

Starting and driving
General
Economical driving
Economical driving results from driving gently
with anticipation and adapting your driving
style and speed to the situation.
Keep in mind the following:
• Drive the engine to operating temperature
as soon as possible! That is to say: do not
let the engine idle, but drive with a light
load as soon as you can.
• A cold engine consumes more fuel than a
warm one.
• Avoid driving short distances where the
engine never has time to reach operating
temperature.
• Drive gently! Avoid unnecessary quick
accelerations and heavy braking.
• Do not drive with unnecessary, heavy
loads in the car.
• Do not use winter tyres when the roads
are clear and dry.
• Remove the load carrier when it is not in
use.
• Do not open side windows unnecessarily.
Do not drive with an open boot
lid!
If you drive with the boot lid open, some of the
exhaust gases and poisonous carbon monoxide could be sucked into the car through the
102
cargo area. If you must drive a short distance
with the boot lid open, proceed as follows:
• Close all windows.
• Distribute the air between the windscreen
and floor while running the fan at high
speed.
Your new car – slippery road
surfaces
Driving on a slippery road may feel different
depending on whether you choose a car with
a manual or an automatic gearbox. Practice
skid driving under controlled conditions so
that you know how your new car reacts.
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
turned 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 system
• parking lights
Also take note of different accessories that
load the electrical system. Do not use func-
tions that consume a lot of current when the
engine is switched off. A text is shown in the
display in the combined instrument panel if
battery voltage is low. The message in the
display remains until the engine has started.
The energy economy function shuts down
certain functions or reduces the load on the
battery, e.g. by lowering ventilation fan speed
and switching off the audio system.
Charge the battery by starting the engine.
Do not allow the engine and
cooling system to overheat
Under certain conditions, e.g. when driving in
hilly terrain and with a heavy load, especially
in warm weather, there is a risk of the engine
and cooling system overheating.
To avoid overheating in the cooling
system:
• Drive at low speeds if driving with a trailer
up a long incline.
• Switch off the air conditioning temporarily.
• Avoid letting the engine idle.
• Do not turn the engine off immediately
you stop, if the car has been driven hard.
• Remove any auxiliary lamps from in front
of the grille if driving in extreme high
temperatures.
Starting and driving
General
To avoid the engine overheating:
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.
103
Starting and driving
Refuelling
WARNING!
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.
Refuelling with petrol
NOTE! Do not add cleaning additives unless
specifically recommended by a Volvo workshop.
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.
Opening the fuel filler flap
The fuel filler flap can be opened when the
car is unlocked.
NOTE! The filler flap remains unlocked for ten
minutes after the car has been locked.
Fuel filler flap
There may be overpressure in the tank if outdoor temperatures are high. Open the cap
slowly. Do not overfill the fuel tank. Stop refuelling when the pump cuts out for the first
time! If the tank is overfilled fuel may overflow
at high temperatures!
After refuelling, replace the fuel cap and turn
until one or more clicks is heard.
104
IMPORTANT!
Petrol-powered cars must always be
refuelled with unleaded petrol so as not
to damage the catalytic converter.
Refuelling with diesel
At low temperatures, paraffin can emanate
from diesel fuel (–5 °C - –40 °C), which may
cause problems when starting. Make sure
you use a special winter grade fuel during
cold weather.
Starting and driving
Starting the car
Starting the engine (petrol)
– Apply the parking brake (handbrake).
– Automatic gearbox
Gear selector in P or N position.
Manual gearbox
Gear lever in neutral and the clutch pedal
completely depressed. This is especially
important in severe cold.
NOTE! The master key blade must be fully extended (as illustrated on page 90) when starting the car. Otherwise there is a risk that the
immobiliser function will prevent the car from
starting.
– Turn the ignition key to the start position.
If the engine does not start within
5-10 seconds, release the key and repeat
the start attempt.
Starting the engine (Diesel)
– Apply the parking brake (handbrake).
– Automatic gearbox
Gear selector in P or N position.
Manual gearbox
Gear lever in neutral and the clutch pedal
completely depressed. This is especially
important in severe cold.
NOTE! The master key blade must be fully extended (as illustrated on page 90) when starting the car. Otherwise there is a risk that the
immobiliser function will prevent the car from
starting.
– Turn the ignition key to the driving position. A symbol on the combined instrument panel will come on indicating that
the engine preheater is activated. Turn the
key to the start position when the lamp extinguishes.
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.
Diesel particle filter (certain
models)
Certain diesel cars are equipped with a particle filter which results in additionally effective
emission control. When the engine reaches
its normal operating temperature (the engine
is warm) a so-called "regeneration" of the
filter takes place automatically, which means
that the particles collected in the filter are
burned away and the filter is emptied.
Regeneration takes between 10 and
15 minutes. During this time fuel consumption may increase slightly.
Winter driving
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 approx. 80% full
of particles then a yellow warning triangle in
the dashboard display is shown along with
the warning text SOOT FILTER FULL SEE
MANUAL.
Regeneration should be carried out regularly
if the car is frequently driven short distances
in cold weather in order to avoid impaired
function of the filter.
• 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.
• To clear the warning text when regeneration is complete, switch off the ignition,
remove the key, wait for at least three
minutes and switch the ignition on again.
• Use the parking heater (option) in cold
weather so that the engine reaches
normal operating temperature more
quickly.

IMPORTANT!
If the filter fills up with particles then it can
be difficult to start the engine and the
filter will be incapable of functioning and
must then be replaced.
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 be activated
accidentally. If this happens, – remove the
excess keys and restart the car.
Never rev the engine hard straight after a cold
start! If the engine does not start or misfires,
contact a Volvo workshop.
WARNING!
Never remove the ignition key from the
steering wheel lock while driving or when
the car is being towed! Never switch off
the ignition (key to position 0) or remove
the ignition key while the car is in motion.
The steering wheel lock could be
activated, making the car impossible to
steer.

selected from 5th gear due to the reverse
gear inhibitor.
For the best possible fuel economy, use the
highest gear possible as often as possible.
107
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.
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.
Safety systems
Cars with an automatic gearbox have special
safety systems:
108
Keylock
To remove the ignition key, the gear selector
must be in the P position. The key is locked in
all other positions.
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.
Neutral position (N position)
The brake pedal must be depressed to move
the gear selector from position N to other
gear positions when the ignition key is in
position I or II.
Mechanical gear selector

Automatic gearbox
Geartronic1
The S60 R with Geartronic has an S button
instead of a W button located at the gear
selector. The gearbox sports programme is
activated using the S button. An LED is lit in
the button to indicate active mode.
The S programme provides sportier characteristics. It allows higher engine speed for the
gears while responding more quickly to
acceleration. During active driving, the use of
a lower gear is prioritised, leading to a
delayed upshift.
1.
S60 R has Geartronic as standard.
Manual positions, Geartronic
To move from the automatic driving
position D to a manual position, move the
gear selector to the left. To go from position
MAN to the automatic driving position D,
move the selector to the right to position D.
P – Park
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 car
will only shift down automatically if you slow
down to a very slow speed.
In P the gearbox is mechanically locked.
Always apply the parking brake when parking
the car.
If the gear lever is moved to – (minus) the car
changes down a gear and engine brakes. If
the gear lever is moved to + (plus) the car
changes up a gear.
Select this position when you wish to start
the engine or park the car.
The car should be stationary when you
select P!
R – Reverse
The car should be stationary when you
select R.
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 is in position N.

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 selecting D from position R.
4 – Low gear
Up and downshifts between 1st, 2nd, 3rd
and 4th are automatic. There is no upshift to
5th gear.
Position 4 can be used:
• for mountain driving
• when driving with a trailer
• to increase engine braking
3 – Low gear
Up and downshifts between 1 st, 2 nd, and
3 rd are automatic. There is no upshift to 4 th
gear.
Position 3 can be used:
• for mountain driving
• when driving with a trailer
• to increase engine braking
L – Low gear
Select L if you wish to drive in 1st or 2nd.
Position L gives the best engine braking for
mountain driving, etc.
W – Winter
button1
The W
by the gear
selector engages and disengages the winter
programme W. The
symbol W is shown in the
combined instrument panel
when the winter programme is activated.
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 programme can only be selected in
position D.
Kick-down
When the accelerator 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 kickdown.
When maximum speed for this gear is
reached, or if the accelerator is released from
the kick-down position, the gearbox automatically changes up.
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
1.
110
S60 R with Geartronic has an
S button instead.
To prevent overrevving, the gearbox control
program has a protective downshift inhibitor.
The kick-down function2 cannot be used in
the manual positions. Return to automatic
position D.
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.
Speed related power steering3
If the car is equipped with speed related
power steering this means that it is easier to
steer at low speeds, which in turn facilitates
parking etc.
As speed is increased the steering force is
adapted to give the driver enhanced
sensitivity.

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).
NOTE! If braking with the engine switched
off, press the brake pedal sharply once, not
repeatedly.
WARNING!
The brake servo only works when the
engine is running.
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.
If the brakes are used heavily
This symbol lights if a brake circuit is
not working.
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.
Because speed is often low, the brakes are
not cooled as effectively as when driving on
flat roads at higher speed.
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.
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 using
engine braking more efficiently and requires
the foot brake for only brief periods.
Brake circuits
WARNING!
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.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
The ABS system (Anti-lock Braking
System) is designed so that the
wheels do not lock when braking.
This retains the best possible steering response when braking. This improves
your ability to swerve to avoid obstacles. The
ABS system does not increase your total
braking capacity. However, as the driver you
have increased ability to steer and thus better
control over the car, which in turn increases
safety.
Bear in mind that driving with a trailer puts an
additional load on the car’s brakes.
111
Starting and driving
Brake system
After the engine has started and reached a
speed of about 20 km/h, a short self-test can
be both heard and felt. When the ABS
system functions, you can hear and feel
pulses in the brake pedal. This is completely
normal.
NOTE! You must depress the brake pedal
fully to take maximum advantage of the ABS
system. Do not release the pedal when you
hear and feel the ABS pulses. Practice braking with the ABS system at a suitable spot
such as a track to practice skidding.
The ABS symbol lights up:
• for approximately two seconds during the
system test when the car is started.
• if the ABS system has shut down due to a
fault.
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.
112
WARNING!
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 level of brake fluid in the reservoir is
below the MIN mark, the car should not be
driven until the brake fluid has been
topped up.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.
Emergency Brake Assistance – EBA
The Emergency Brake Assistance function
(EBA) is integrated in the DSTC system and
is designed to provide immediate maximum
brake force whenever rapid braking is necessary. The system detects the need for heavier
braking by registering how quickly the brake
pedal is applied.
The EBA function is active at all speeds. For
safety reasons, it cannot be switched off.
When the EBA function is activated, the
brake pedal sinks while maximum braking
force is applied. Continue braking without
releasing the brake pedal. The EBA function
disengages when the pressure on the brake
pedal is released.
Starting and driving
Stability system
When the stability system1 is in action, it may
seem like the car does not respond normally
to acceleration. This is because the system
detects the amount of friction on the road
surface and allows the different stability
system functions to operate.
The car is either equipped with STC (Stability
and Traction Control) – Stability and traction
control system or DSTC (Dynamic Stability
and Traction Control) – Dynamic stability and
traction control system.

normal. The TC function is most active at low
speeds. It cannot be deactivated.
Spin Control (SC)
The Stability Control function prevents the
drive wheels from slipping during acceleration. This improves road safety on slippery
surfaces. Under certain conditions, such as
when driving with snow chains or in deep
snow or sand, it may be beneficial to deactivate the SC function to increase traction. This
is done with the STC/DSTC button.
Active Yaw Control (AYC)
The Active Yaw Control function automatically brakes one or more wheels to stabilise
the car in the event of a skid. If the brake
pedal were to be depressed in this situation,
it would feel more rigid than usual and a pulsing sound would be heard.
The AYC function is always active and cannot
be deactivated.
WARNING!
Suppressing the STC or DSTC system
may alter the driving characteristics of the
car. Always take care when cornering and
driving in slippery conditions.
Active chassis – FOUR-C2
The car is equipped with an extremely
advanced active chassis system – Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept – that is
regulated electronically. The functions of the
system are based on a number of sensors
that continually monitor the car’s movements
and reactions, such as vertical and lateral
acceleration, vehicle speed and wheel movements.
The FOUR-C control unit analyses data from
the sensors and performs the necessary
shock absorber setting adjustments up to
500 times per second. This results in
extremely fast and accurate individual shock
absorber control, which contributes to variations in chassis characteristics.
Chassis characteristics can be modified at
any time while driving, when the nature of the
road changes or when you desire a change in
driving style. This change occurs in a matter
of milliseconds.
The effect produced by pressing the accelerator pedal is linked to your choice of chassis
characteristics. (only applies to R-models).

Comfort
Comfort mode adjusts the chassis setting so
that the body is insulated from uneven sections of the road surface, which allows for
better glide. Shock absorption is softer and

Sport
In Sport mode, steering responses are
quicker than in Comfort mode. Damping is

Starting with a booster battery
If for some reason the battery in your car is
discharged, you can "borrow" current from a
spare battery or another car’s battery to start
the engine. Always check that the clamps are
fastened properly to prevent sparking during
the start attempt.
To avoid the risk of explosion, we recommend
you do exactly as follows.
– Connect the red cable between the
booster battery positive terminal (1+) and
the red connection in the engine compartment (2+).
Attach the clamp to the contact point located beneath a small black cover with a
plus sign which is integrated in the fuse
box cover.
– Connect one clamp of the black cable to
the negative terminal of the booster battery (3–).
– Connect the other clamp of the black cable to the lifting eye on your car’s engine
(4–).
– Start the engine of the "booster 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 clamps in reverse order.
NOTE! Do not remove the clamps during the
start attempt (risk of spark build-up).
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.
– Turn the ignition key to position 0.
– Ensure that the booster battery has
12 volt current.
– If the booster battery is in another car,
stop the engine of that car and make sure
the cars are not touching.

Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
The towing bracket on the car must be of an
approved type. Your Volvo dealer can advise
you as to which towing bracket to use.
• Distribute the load on the trailer so that
the weight on the towing bracket follows
the specified maximum towball load.
• Increase tyre pressure so that it corresponds to the pressure for full load. See
the tyre pressure table!
• Clean the towing bracket regularly and
grease the towball1 and all moving parts
to prevent unnecessary wear.
• Do not drive with a heavy trailer when
your car is brand new! Wait until it has
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.
• If the car is driven with a heavy load in a
hot climate, the engine and gearbox may
overheat. The temperature gauge in the
combined instrument panel goes into the
red zone when the car overheats. Stop
and let the engine idle a few minutes.
• If the car overheats, the air conditioning
system can be temporarily switched off.
1.
120
Does not apply to ball hitch with
vibration damper.
• The gearbox reacts with a built-in
protection function if the car overheats.
See the message in the display!
• The engine is loaded more heavily than
usual when driving with a trailer.
• For reasons of safety, you should not
drive faster than 80 km/h, even if the laws
of certain countries permit higher speeds.
• The highest trailer weight permitted for a
trailer without brakes is 750 kg.
• If you park with a trailer, always set the
gear selector to P (automatic gearbox) or
put the car in a gear (manual gearbox). If
you park on a steep hill, put chocks under
the wheels.
• Avoid driving on inclines exceeding 12%
if the trailer weight exceeds 1200 kg. Do
not drive with a trailer at all on inclines
exceeding 15%.
Trailer weights
See page 221 for permitted trailer weights.
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.
WARNING!
Follow the stated recommendations for
trailer weights. Otherwise, the rig may be
difficult to control during evasive
manoeuvres and braking.

Driving with trailer – automatic
gearbox
• When parking on hills, apply the parking
brake before moving the gear selector to
P. When starting on a hill, first put the
gear selector in drive and then release the
parking brake.
• Select a low gear in the gearbox when
driving on steep inclines or when driving
slowly. This prevents the gearbox from
upshifting if you have an automatic
gearbox. The gearbox oil will be cooler.
• If you have a Geartronic gearbox, do not
use a higher manual gear than the engine
can "handle". It is not always economical
to drive in high gears.
NOTE! Some models require an oil cooler for
the automatic gearbox when driving with a
trailer. Check with your nearest Volvo dealer
as to what applies to your car if you have a
retrofitted towbar.
Levelling
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.

Towing equipment
Towbars
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 124.
NOTE! Always take off the towball section after use. Keep it in the cargo area.
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.
122
Trailer cable
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

Load on the roof
General
• 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.
• Remove the load carrier when it is not in
use. This reduces wind resistance and
fuel consumption.
The load capacity is affected by extra accessories mounted on the car, such as a towbar,
the load on the towball (75 kg with trailer
hitched), load carriers and space box, as well
as the passengers’ combined weight. The
car’s load carrying capacity is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight.
WARNING!
WARNING!
The car’s driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
Using load carriers (accessory)
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
and load are properly secured. Lash the
load securely with retaining straps.
• Distribute the load evenly over the load
carriers. Do not load lopsidedly. Place the
heaviest items at the bottom.
• Remember that the car’s centre of gravity
and driving characteristics change if you
have a load on the roof.
126
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.
Starting and driving
Load on the roof
– Check that the hook is properly secured
in the roof bracket.
– Tighten the knobs alternately until the carrier feels secure.
– Replace the cover.
– Check that the roof rack is properly secured.
– Check the knobs regularly to see that they
are properly tightened.
Fitting load carriers
– Make sure the load carrier is placed in the
right direction (see the marking on the decal under the cover).
– Fit the guide pins into the guide holes (1).
– Carefully lower the bracket on the other
side to the roof.
– Screw the knob up a bit.
– Press the knob against the roof bracket

A
1 – BLIS camera, 2 – Indicator lamp,
3 – BLIS symbol
BLIS
BLIS is an information system which indicates whether there is another vehicle
moving in the same direction in the so-called
"blind spot".
WARNING!
The system is a supplement to, and not a
replacement for, the existing rearview
mirrors. It can never replace the
awareness and responsibility of the driver.
The responsibility for changing lanes
safely rests with the driver.
"Blind spots" covered by BLIS
Distance A = approx. 9.5 m
Distance B = approx. 3 m
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 then an indicator lamp is
lit in the door panel (2). The light comes on
with a constant glow to draw the driver’s
attention to a vehicle in the blind spot.
cle. If the car is overtaken on both sides at the
same time then both lamps come on.
BLIS also has an integrated function which
warns the driver if a fault should arise in the
system. If, for example, the system’s cameras
are obscured then the BLIS indicator lamp
flashes and a message is shown in the dashboard display (see the table on page 135). In
such cases, check and clean the lenses. If
necessary, the system can be switched off
temporarily by pressing the BLIS button (see
page 135).
When BLIS operates
The system operates when the car is driven at
a speed above 10 km/h.
When you overtake another vehicle:
• The system reacts if you overtake another
vehicle at a speed of up to 10 km/h
faster than the other vehicle.
When you are overtaken by another
vehicle:
• The system reacts if you are overtaken by
a vehicle travelling up to 70 km/h faster
than you are travelling.
NOTE! The lamp comes on on the side of the
car where the system has detected the vehi133
Starting and driving
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) – option
WARNING!
• 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.
System function in daylight and
darkness
Daylight
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.
Darkness
In darkness the system reacts to the headlamps of surrounding vehicles. If its headlamps are not switched on then the system
does not detect the vehicle. This means for
example that the system does not react to a
trailer without headlamps which is towed
behind a car or truck.
134
WARNING!
• The system does not react to bicycles
or mopeds.
The BLIS cameras can be disrupted by
intensive light or when driving in the dark
when there are no light sources (e.g.
street lighting or other vehicles). The
system may then interpret the lack of light
as if the cameras have been blocked.
In both cases a message is shown in the
dashboard display.
When driving in such conditions the
system can be temporarily switched off
(see the information on the next page).
When the text message has faded out
then the system returns to full function.
• The BLIS cameras have the same
limitations as the human eye, i.e. they
"see" worse in heavy snowfall or thick fog
for example.
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 or snow. If necessary, brush snow
away from the lenses.

Switching off and reactivating BLIS
• BLIS is activated automatically each time
the ignition is switched on. The indicator
lamps in the door panels flash three times
when the ignition is switched on.
• The system can be switched off by
pressing the BLIS button in the switch
panel in the centre console (see illustration above). The LED in the button
goes out when the system is switched off
and a text message is shown in the
display in the dashboard.

Wheels and tyres
General
Driving characteristics and 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.
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 141.
Designation of dimensions
The dimensions are stated on all car tyres.

Rim diameter in inches (")
Tyre load index (in this case 615 kg)
Speed rating (in this case

Speed ratings
The car is approved as a whole, which means
that dimensions and speed ratings must not
differ from those specified on the vehicle’s
registration document. The only exception to
138
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).
Remember that traffic regulations determine
how fast a car can be driven, not the speed
class of the tyres.
Note! Maximum permitted speeds indicated.

New tyres
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.
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, and it 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 discolouration.
The age of the tyre can be determined by the
DOT marking, see illustration above.
Wheels and tyres
General
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 only
1.6 mm of tread remains, this band is clearly
visible. Change the tyres as soon as possible.
Remember that tyres with little tread depth
provide very poor grip in rain and snow.
Winter tyres
Volvo recommends winter tyres with particular dimensions. These are stated on the tyre
pressure label, see page 141 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.
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 millimetres.
Snow chains
Snow chains may only be used on the front
wheels. This also applies to all-wheel-drive
cars.
Locking wheel bolts
Locking wheel bolts can be used on both aluminium and steel rims. If steel rims with locking wheel bolts are used in combination with
wheel covers then the locking wheel bolts
must be fitted furthest from the air valve. Otherwise the wheel cover cannot be fitted on
the rim.
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 disks and the wheels is
too small.
IMPORTANT!
Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent chains designed for the car model,
and tyre and rim dimensions. Consult an
authorised Volvo workshop.
NOTE! The legal provisions for the use of
studded tyres vary from country to country.
139
Wheels and tyres
General
adversely affected. Tyres with the greatest
tread depth should always be fitted to the
rear of the car (to decrease the risk of skidding).
Wheels should be stored lying down or hanging up, and not standing up.
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop if you
are uncertain about tread depth.
The arrow shows the tyre’s direction of
rotation.
Summer and winter wheels
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
between front and rear positions, never
between left and right-hand sides, or vice
versa. If the tyre is mounted incorrectly, the
car’s braking characteristics and capacity to
force rain, snow and slush out of the way are

Tyre pressure
Recommended tyre pressure
Checking the tyre pressure
The tyre pressure decal on the inside of the
fuel filler flap shows what pressure the tyres
should have with different load and speed
conditions.
Check the tyre pressure regularly. The correct tyre pressure is shown in the tyre pressure table. The stated tyre pressures refer to
cold tyres. (Cold tyres mean the tyres are the
same temperature as the ambient temperature).

Australia
Driving with the wrong tyre pressure
adversely affects the car’s driving characteristics and can increase tyre wear. After just a
few kilometres of driving, the tyres warm up
and the pressure increases. Therefore air
should not be released if the pressure is
checked when the tyres are warm. However
the pressure should be increased if it is too
low.

Spare wheel, "Temporary spare"
The spare wheel1 "Temporary Spare" should
only be used for the short time it takes to
repair or replace the normal tyre.
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.
Remember also that this tyre combined with
the normal tyres will affect driving characteristics. The maximum speed with the "Temporary Spare" - spare wheel is therefore
80 km/h.
NOTE! Only use the car’s own genuine spare
wheel! Tyres with other dimensions may
cause damage to your car. Only one spare
wheel may be used at a time.

Washing the car
Wash the car as soon as it becomes dirty,
especially in the winter when road salt and
moisture can lead to corrosion.
Wash the car as follows:
• 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 high-pressure washer,
make sure that its nozzle is not closer
than 30 cm to the bodywork. Do not
spray directly at the locks.
• Wash with a sponge using a lot of water
with or without detergent.
• Use warm water (max. 35 °C), not water
that is too hot.
• If the dirt is ingrained, you can wash the
car with cold degreasing agent, but be
sure that there is a waste water separator
where you are washing the car. When
using cold degreasing agent, make sure
that the car is not in direct sunlight and
that the paint is not warm due to sunlight
148
or a warm engine. Sunlight and heat can
cause permanent damage. Consult your
Volvo workshop.
• Dry the car with a clean, soft chamois.
• Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
soap solution.
Suitable detergent:
Car shampoo.
Keep the following in mind:
Always remove bird droppings from the
paintwork as soon as possible. Bird
droppings contain chemicals that can affect
and discolour paintwork very quickly. Discoloration cannot be removed with polish.
Automatic car washes
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick
way of washing the car. Bear in mind,
however, that an automatic car wash can
never replace a proper handwashing – the
brushes of a car wash cannot reach everywhere.
IMPORTANT!
Washing by hand is gentler to the
paintwork than an automatic car wash.
The paintwork is also more sensitive
when it is new. For this reason,
handwashing is recommended during the
first few months with a new car.
IMPORTANT!
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage
the fabric upholstery.
WARNING!
Do not wash the engine while it is warm.
Risk of fire! Entrust engine washing to an
authorised Volvo workshop.
WARNING!
After washing: always test the brakes so
that moisture and corrosion do not affect
the brake lining and impair the brakes!
Lightly depress the brake pedal now and
then when driving long distances in rain or
slush so that the brake lining warms and
dries. You should also do this when you
begin driving after damp or cold weather.

the package. Many preparations contain both
polish and wax.
To avoid damaging glass surfaces when
removing ice, only use plastic ice scrapers.
There is natural wear of the water-repellent
coating.
NOTE! Treatment with a special finishing
agent available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the waterrepellent properties. This should be used first
after three years and then each year.
Do not polish or wax surfaces warmer than
45 °C.

Car care
Touching up paintwork
Paintwork
Paint is an important part of the car’s
rustproofing and should therefore be
checked regularly. Repair paintwork damage
immediately so that it does not start to rust.
The most common types of paintwork
damage that you can repair yourself are:
• minor stone chips and scratches
• damage to wing edges and doors.
When repairing paintwork, the car should be
clean and dry with a temperature above
+15 °C.
Variant 1
Colour code
Make sure you have the right colour. The
colour code number is on the data plate in the
engine compartment.
Remove any paint residue with tape. Mask if
necessary.
Minor stone chips and scratches
Variant 2
Only China
150
Material:
•
•
•
•
•
Primer in a can.
Paint in a can or a touch-up pen.
Brush.
Masking tape.
If the stone chip has not gone down to
the bare metal and an unpainted colour
coat remains, you can add paint immediately after removing dirt.
Car care
Touching up paintwork
Do as follows if the stone chip went
down to the bare metal:
– Fasten a piece of masking tape over the
damaged surface. Then remove the tape,
removing any paint residue (illustration 1).
– Stir the primer thoroughly and apply using
a fine brush or matchstick (illustration 2).
– When the primer is dry, apply the surface
coat with a brush.
– Make sure the paint is well stirred and
apply several thin coats; allowing it to dry
between coats.
– The procedure is the same for scratches,
but masking tape can be used to protect
undamaged paintwork (illustration 3).
– Wait a day or so and then finish the repair
by polishing. Use a soft rag and apply
lapping paste sparingly.

Car care
Rustproofing
Rustproofing – check and repair
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. Members, cavities
and enclosed sections are sprayed with a
thin, penetrating rust inhibitor.
The car’s rustproofing is maintained by doing
the following:
• Keep the car clean! Hose down the
underbody. During high pressure washing
- hold the nozzle at least 30 cm from
painted surfaces!
• Check and repair the rustproofing
regularly.
The car’s rustproofing does not normally
require treatment for approximately 8 years.
After that time, it should be treated at three
year intervals. If your car requires treatment,
consult your Volvo workshop.
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.
152
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.

Note the following before you
begin working on your car:
WARNING!
Battery
Ensure that the battery cables are correctly
connected and tightened.
Never disconnect the battery when the
engine is running (e.g. when replacing the
battery).
Never use a fast charger to charge the
battery. The battery cables should be disconnected when recharging.
The battery contains acid that is both
corrosive and toxic. Handle the battery in an
environmentally-suitable way. Let your Volvo
dealer assist you.
Lifting the car
If the car is lifted with a workshop jack, it
should sit with the front edge on the engine
support arm. Do not damage the splashguard
under the engine. Ensure that the jack is
positioned so that the car cannot slide off the
jack. Always use axle stands or the like.
If you raise the car using a two pillar
workshop lift, ensure that the front and rear
lift arms are fixed under the lifting points on
the door sill. See the illustration.
The car ignition system has very high
voltage!
The voltage in the ignition system is
dangerous!
Do not touch spark plugs, ignition cables
or the ignition coil when the engine is
running or the ignition is switched on!
The ignition should be switched off when:
• Conducting engine tests.
• Replacing parts in the ignition system,
such as spark plugs, ignition coil,

Diesel
Fuel system
Diesel engines are sensitive to contaminants.
Only use diesel fuel from a well-known oil
company that fulfils the requirements for
recommended fuel grade as described on
page 230. Never use diesel of dubious
quality. Special diesel fuel designed for low
temperatures around freezing point is
available from the major oil companies. This
fuel is less viscous at low temperatures and
reduces the risk of wax building up in the fuel
system.
IMPORTANT!
Diesel type fuels which must not be used:
special additives, Marine Diesel Fuel, fuel
oil, RME (Rape Methyl Ester), 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 risk of condensation building up in the
tank is reduced if the tank is kept well filled.
Draining condensation from the
fuel filter
Make sure that the area around the filler pipe
is clean when refuelling.
The fuel filter separates condensation from
the fuel. Condensation can disrupt engine
operation.
Avoid spilling onto the paintwork. Wash off
any spills with detergent and water.
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.
158
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.

•
Engine compartment decal for oil grade
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.
Volvo recommends
oil products.
Using oil of a higher than specified grade is
permitted. Volvo recommends using an oil of
a higher grade than that specified on the
towing a caravan or trailer
in mountainous regions
at high speeds
in temperatures colder than –30 °C or
hotter than +40 °C
• shorter driving distances (shorter than
10 km) at low temperatures (under 5 °C).
This may result in abnormally high oil temperature or oil consumption.
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 2500 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.
Checking and changing the
engine oil and oil filter
Change the oil and oil filter in accordance
with the intervals specified in the Service and
Warranty Booklet.
IMPORTANT!
When filling oil to top up a low oil level,
the oil being filled must be of the same
grade and viscosity as the oil in the
engine.
159
Maintenance and service
Oils and fluids
– 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 227 for capacities.
IMPORTANT!
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 227 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.

Never fill above the MAX mark. Oil
consumption may increase if too much oil
is poured into the engine.
WARNING!
Do not spill oil onto the hot exhaust
manifold due to the risk of fire.

Use washer fluid during the winter so that the
fluid does not freeze in the pump, reservoir
and hoses.
Tip: clean the wiper blades when topping up
washer fluid.
Check the coolant regularly. The level should
lie between the MIN and MAX marks on the
expansion tank. Top up with fluid when the
level has fallen to the MIN mark.
See capacities and recommended grade for
fluids and oils on page 227.
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.
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.
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.

Radio Data System – RDS
Traffic information – TP station
RDS is a system that links together specific
network transmitters. It is used, for example,
to tune the correct frequency of a station
irrespective of the transmitter or the active
audio source (e.g. CD). The system can also
be used for receiving traffic information and
for finding broadcasts of a specific type.
Radio text is also a component of RDS. A
radio station can, for example, transmit information about the radio programme currently
being broadcast.
Traffic information from RDS stations interrupts other sound sources. The message is
heard at the volume set for this specific
feature. As soon as the message ends, the
audio system returns to the previous sound
source and volume setting.
Some radio stations do not use RDS or only
use a limited range of its features.
PI seek (automatic search for
stations)
When listening to an RDS transmitter,
various information, such as traffic information, is stored in the radio.
When a preset RDS transmitter is later
selected, the radio updates the transmitter’s
RDS information. If the radio is at the
boundary or just outside of the transmitter’s
range, the radio automatically seeks the
strongest possible transmitter of that
channel.
If there is no audible transmitter, the radio
quiets and the PI SEEK appears in the
display until the station is found.

Engine oil
Adverse driving conditions
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
• shorter driving distances (shorter than
10 km) at low temperatures (under 5 °C).
This may result in abnormally high oil temperature or oil consumption.
Choose a fully synthetic engine oil for
adverse driving conditions. It provides extra
protection for the engine.
Volvo recommends
224
oil products.
IMPORTANT!
Always use the prescribed oil grade and
viscosity.
If an oil other than that prescribed has
been used, contact the local authorised
Volvo workshop immediately for service.
Do not use extra oil additives. They could
damage the engine.

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
affect fuel consumption. Consumption is
higher and power output lower for fuel with
an octane rating of 91 RON.
230
Petrol
Most engines can be run with octane ratings
of 91, 95 and 98 RON.
• 91 RON must not be used in 4 cylinder
engines.
• 95 RON can be used for normal driving.
• 98 RON is recommended for maximum
effect 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.

Standard EN 228
Diesel:
Standard EN 590
Technical data
Catalytic converter
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve
fuel economy.
General
An oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen
content of the exhaust gases leaving the
engine. This value is fed into an electronic
system that continuously controls the
injectors. The ratio of 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).
The purpose of the catalytic converter is to
purify exhaust gases. It is located in the flow
of exhaust gasses 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 platinum/
rhodium/palladium. These metals act as
catalysts, i.e. they participate in and accelerate a chemical reaction without being used
up themselves.

Electrical system
General

chassis and engine block are used as

connected to the chassis.
The car is equipped with an extra ground lead
to reduce the magnetic fields.
