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. If you are uncertain over
what is standard, an option or an accessory
then contact your Volvo dealer.

Introduction
Volvo Cars and the environment
Volvo Cars’ environmental philosophy
Environmental care, safety and quality are
the three core values which influence all
operations of the Volvo Car Corporation. We
also believe that our customers share our
consideration for the environment.
Your Volvo complies with strict international
environmental standards and is also manufactured in one of the cleanest and most
resource-efficient plants in the world.
Volvo Car Corporation has global ISO certification, which includes the environmental
standard (ISO 14001) covering factories,
central functions, as well as several of our
other units. We also set requirements for our
partners so that they work systematically
with environmental issues.
EPI (Environmental Product Information) is
supplied for all Volvo models. Here you can
see how the environment is affected during
the entire lifecycle of the car.

carbon dioxide.
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption. For more information read

Introduction
Volvo Cars and the environment
Efficient emission control
Textile standard
Reducing environmental impact
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.
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 standard2,
a major advance towards a healthier passenger compartment environment.
You can easily help reduce environmental
impact, for example, by driving economically,
by purchasing eco-labelled car care products and by servicing and maintaining the car
in accordance with the instructions in the
owner’s manual.
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
A passenger compartment filter prevents
dust and pollen from entering the passenger
compartment via the air intake.
1
A sophisticated air quality system, IAQS
(Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the
incoming air is cleaner than the air in the traffic outside.
The system consists of an electronic sensor
and a carbon filter. The incoming air is monitored continuously and if there is an increase
in the level of certain unhealthy gases such
as carbon monoxide then the air intake is
closed. Such a situation may arise in heavy
traffic, queues and tunnels for example.
The entry of nitrous oxides, ground-level
ozone and hydrocarbons is prevented by the
carbon filter.

Option
Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts, carpets 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 and low fuel consumption for your car, and in this way you contribute to a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s
workshops are entrusted with the service
and maintenance of your car it becomes part
of our system. We make clear demands
regarding the way in which our workshops
are designed in order to prevent spills and
discharges into the environment. Our workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools
required to guarantee good environmental
care.

More information on www.oekotex.com
The following hints will help you to do your bit
for the environment (for further advice on
how you can reduce environmental impact
and drive economically, see page 116).
• Decrease fuel consumption by choosing
ECO tyre pressure, see page 160.
• A roof load and ski box
increase wind resistance,
leading to significantly
higher fuel consumption.
Remove them 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.
Introduction
Volvo Cars and the environment
• Drive in the highest gear
possible. Low engine
speeds result in lower fuel
consumption.
• Use engine braking to
slow down.
• Avoid idling. Take consideration of local
regulations. Switch off the engine in longer
stationary traffic.
• Always dispose of environmentally hazardous
waste, such as batteries
and oils, in an environmentally responsible
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
Releasing the seatbelt
– Press the red lock button and then let the
seatbelt retract. If the seatbelt does not
retract fully, feed the seatbelt in by hand
so that it does not hang loose.
The seatbelt locks and cannot be withdrawn:
G020104
• if it is pulled out too quickly.
• during braking and acceleration.
• if the car leans heavily.
Tensioning the hip strap. The belt must be
positioned low down.
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used, so
make sure that all passengers use their seatbelts. It is important that the seatbelt lies
against the body so it can provide maximum
protection. Do not lean the backrest too far
back. The seatbelt is designed to protect in a
normal seating position.
Putting on a seatbelt:
– Pull the seatbelt out slowly and secure it
by pressing the buckle into the lock. A
loud "click" indicates that the seatbelt has
locked.
12
Keep in mind the following:
• do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the seatbelt from fitting properly
• ensure that the seatbelt is not twisted or
caught on anything
• the hip strap must be positioned low down
(not over the abdomen).
• tension the hip strap over the lap by
pulling the diagonal shoulder belt as
illustrated.
WARNING
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly, this
may diminish the protection provided by the
airbag in the event of a collision.
WARNING
Each seatbelt is designed for only one
person.
WARNING
Never modify or repair the seatbelt yourself.
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop. If
the seatbelt has been subjected to a major
load, such as in a collision, the entire seatbelt including reel, anchorage and buckle
must be replaced. Some of the seatbelt’s
protective properties may have been lost
even if the seatbelt does not appear damaged. The seatbelt must also be replaced if
it shows signs of wear or damage. The new
seatbelt must be type-approved and
designed for installation at the same location as the replaced seatbelt.
01 Safety
Seatbelts
Seatbelts and pregnancy
Seatbelt reminder
The seatbelt should always be worn during
pregnancy. But it is crucial that it be worn in
the correct way. The diagonal section of the
seatbelt should wrap over the shoulder then
be routed between the breasts and to the
side of the abdomen. The lap section of the
seatbelt 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 seatbelt and ensure that it fits
close to the body. In addition, check that
there are no twists in the seatbelt.
As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers
should adjust their seats and steering wheel
such that they can easily maintain control of
G018084
G020105
the vehicle as they drive (which means that
they must be able to easily operate the foot
pedals and steering wheel). They should
strive to position the seat with as large a distance as possible between their abdomen
and the steering wheel.
01
Unbelted occupants will be reminded to fasten their seatbelts through an audio and visual reminder. The audio reminder is speed
dependent, and in some cases time dependent. The visual reminder is located in the roof
console and the combined instrument panel.
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. The message is shown on the information display

Seatbelts
when the seatbelts are being used or
when the rear doors are opened. The
message is automatically cleared after
approx. 30 seconds or it can be acknowledged manually by pressing the READ
button.
• To provide a warning if one of the rear
seatbelts is unfastened during a journey.
This warning takes the form of a message
on the information display along with the
audio/visual signal. The warning ceases
when the seatbelt is re-fastened or when
manually acknowledged by pressing the
READ button.
The message on the information display
showing which seatbelts are in use is always
available. Press the READ button to see
stored messages.
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 6 seconds.
14
Seatbelt tensioner
All the seatbelts are equipped with seatbelt
tensioners. A mechanism in the seatbelt tensioner tightens the belt around the body in
the event of a sufficiently violent collision.
The belt then provides more effective
restraint for the wearer.

For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS) see page 18.
01 Safety
Airbags (SRS)
01
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,
takes place within tenths of a second.

G020110
SRS system
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.
The airbags have a function whereby their
capacities are adapted to the collision force
to which the car is subjected.

Side airbags (SIPS bags)
Side airbag – SIPS bag
WARNING
Repairs must only be performed by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Any interference in the SIPS bag system
could cause malfunction and result in
serious personal injury.
Child seats and side airbags
The side airbag does not diminish the protection provided by the car to children seated in
a child seat or on a booster cushion.
A child seat or booster cushion can be
placed on the front passenger seat provided
that the car does not have an activated1 passenger airbag.
G020118
WARNING
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.
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.
WARNING
Side airbags are a supplement the seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.

01 Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
01
Driver’s side, left-hand drive cars
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. The airbag
deflates when compressed by the collision.
The side airbag is normally only deployed on
the side of the collision.

Inflatable Curtain (IC)
G015265
Properties
The inflatable curtain IC (Inflatable Curtain) is
a supplement to the SIPS and the airbags. It
is fitted in the headlining along both sides of
the roof and protects all of the vehicle’s outer
seats. A sufficiently violent collision trips the
sensors and the inflatable curtain is inflated.
The inflatable curtain helps to prevent the
driver and passengers from striking their
heads on the inside of the car during a
collision.
22
WARNING
Never hang or attach heavy items onto the
handles in the roof. The hook is only
designed for light clothing (not for solid
objects such as umbrellas for example).
Do not screw or 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 side windows.
Otherwise, the intended protection of the
inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the
headlining, may be compromised.
WARNING
The inflatable curtain is a supplement to the
seatbelts.
Always use a seatbelt.
01 Safety
WHIPS
01
G020347
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.
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.

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.

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.
• Let an authorised Volvo workshop replace
components in the car’s safety system.
• Always contact a doctor.
NOTE
WARNING
The airbag system 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/
injury after intensive exposure. In case of

Crash mode
Driving after a collision
If everything seems normal and you have
checked for indications of fuel leakage, you
may attempt to start the car.
G020127
Firstly, remove the ignition key and then reinsert it. The car’s electronics will then try to
reset themselves to normal mode. Then try to
start the car. If CRASH MODE is still shown
in the display then the car must not be driven
or towed. Even if the car appears to be driveable, hidden damage may make the car
impossible to control once moving.
If the car is involved in a collision, the text
CRASH MODE - SEE MANUAL may appear
on the information display. This means that
the car has reduced functionality. Crash
mode is a protective state that is enforced
when the collision may have damaged the
car’s vital functions, such as the fuel lines,
sensors for one of the safety systems, or the
brake system.
Attempting to start the car
First, check that no fuel is leaking from the
car. There should be no smell of fuel.
26
Moving the car
If NORMAL MODE is shown after CRASH
MODE has been reset, the car can be moved
carefully out of a dangerous position. Do not
move the car further than necessary.
WARNING
Never attempt to repair your car or reset the
electronics yourself if the car has been in
crash mode. This could result in personal
injury or the car not functioning as normal.
Always allow an authorised Volvo workshop
to check and restore the car to
NORMAL MODE after CRASH MODE
has been displayed.
WARNING
Never, under any circumstances, attempt to
restart the car if it smells of fuel when the
CRASH MODE message is displayed.
Leave the car at once.
WARNING
If the car is in CRASH MODE it must not be
towed. It must be transported to an authorised Volvo workshop.

Air conditioning
Refrigerant
Personal preferences
The climate control system cools or heats,
and dehumidifies the air entering the passenger compartment. The car is equipped with
either manual (AC) or 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.
You can set preferences for two climate control functions:
NOTE
The air conditioning system 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
Remove misting on the insides of the windows by first using the defroster function.
To reduce the risk of misting, clean the windows with a normal window cleaning agent.
Ice and snow
All air which enters the passenger compartment is first cleaned by a filter. This filter
must be replaced regularly. Follow the Volvo
Service Programme for the recommended
replacement intervals. If the car is used in a
severely contaminated environment, it may
be necessary to replace the filter more often.
NOTE
There are several different types of passenger compartment filter. Ensure that the correct filter is installed.
Remove ice and snow from the climate control air intake (the grille between the bonnet
and the windscreen).
Display
Fault tracing and repair
There is a display above the climate control
panel that displays climate control settings.
Entrust fault tracing and repair of the climate
control system to an authorised Volvo workshop only.

General information about heaters
Activating the heater
The parking heater can be started immediately or set with two different start times
using TIMER AM and TIMER PM. 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
minus 10 °C and lower, the maximum running time of the parking heater is 60 minutes.
WARNING
The car must be outdoors when the petrol
or diesel heater is used.
WARNING
Switch off the fuel-driven heater before
refuelling. Spilled fuel could be ignited.

Remote control with key blade
Loss of a remote control
The car is supplied with two remote controls
which also serve as ignition keys. The remote
controls contain detachable metal key blades
for mechanical locking/unlocking of the
driver’s door and glovebox.
If you lose a remote control, take the car and
the other remote controls to an authorised
Volvo workshop. The code of the missing
remote control must be erased from the system as a theft prevention measure.
The key blades’ unique code is available at
authorised Volvo workshops, who can order
new key blades.
Immobiliser
A maximum of six remote controls/key
blades can be programmed and used for one
single car.
05
Turn signal indication during locking/
unlocking
When the car is unlocked using the
Keyless Drive system or the remote control,
two short flashes of the direction indicators
serve to indicate that unlocking was correctly
performed.
For locking, the indication takes place with
one long flash and only if all locks have been
locked, after the doors and the boot lid have
been closed.
Personal preferences can be used to deactivate indication via the direction indicators.
There will then be no visual indication as to
whether the lock status is correct. See
page 66.
98
The remote controls are fitted with coded
chips. The code must be accepted by the
reader (receiver) in the ignition switch. The
car can only be started if the correct remote
control with the correct code is used.

In order to open a door or the boot lid, a
remote control must be no more than
approx. 1.5 m from the car door handle or

This means that the person who wishes to
open a door must have the remote control
with him or her. It is not possible to open a
door if the remote control is on the other side
of the car.

G019423
The grey area in the illustration indicates the
range covered by the system’s antennas.
Keyless function range.
The keyless drive system allows the car to be
unlocked, driven and locked without the
need for a key. You simply need to have the
remote control with you in a pocket or a bag.
The system makes it easier and more convenient to open the car, for example with
shopping bags in one hand and a child in the
other. It saves you having to take out or look
for the remote control.
The two remote controls incorporate the keyless drive feature. You can order additional
remote controls. The keyless drive system
can handle up to six remote controls.
102
If someone leaves the car and takes a keyless drive remote control with them, a warning message appears on the information display and a reminder signal sounds. The
warning message disappears when the
remote control is brought back to the car or
when the ignition dial is turned to position 0.
The warning is only issued if the ignition dial
is in position I or II after someone has
opened and closed a door.
The warning message and reminder signal
disappear when the remote control is
brought back to the car after one of the following actions:
• a door has been opened and closed
• the ignition dial has been turned to
position 0
• the READ button has been pressed.
Never leave any remote control in the
car
If a remote control with keyless drive function
is left in the car, it is made passive when the
car is locked. This prevents unauthorised
entry.
If someone breaks into the car and finds the
remote control, it can be activated and used
again. It is therefore important to handle all
remote controls with care.
Interference to remote control function
Electromagnetic screening and fields can
interfere with the keyless drive system. To
avoid this: do not place the remote control
near mobile phones, metallic objects or, for
example, in a metal briefcase.
If interference is experienced nonetheless,
use the remote control and key blade in the
normal way. See page 98.

STARTING AND DRIVING
06
06 Starting and driving
General
Economical driving
06
Driving economically means driving smoothly
while thinking ahead and adjusting your driving style and speed to the prevailing conditions.
• 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 braking too hard.
• Do not drive with unnecessary loads in the
car.
• Do not use winter tyres when the roads
are dry.
• Remove load carriers when they are not
being used.
• 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
heavy loads, there is a risk that the engine
and cooling system will overheat.
116
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 could then become too high.
Open boot lid
Avoid driving with the boot lid open. If it is
necessary to drive with the boot lid open for
a short distance:
– 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 boot lid open. Toxic
exhaust fumes can be drawn into the car
through the cargo area.
Driving in water
The car can be driven through water at a
maximum depth of 25 cm at a maximum
speed of 10 km/h. Extra caution should be
exercised when passing through flowing
water.
IMPORTANT
Engine damage can 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 attained.
Water and mud for example can make the
brake linings wet resulting in delayed brake
function.
Clean the electric contacts of the electric
engine block heater and trailer coupling after
driving in water and mud.
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.
06 Starting and driving
General
Do not overload the battery
The electrical functions in the car load the
battery to varying degrees. Avoid using the
ignition position II when the engine is
switched off. Use ignition position I instead,
as less power is consumed.
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.
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.

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.
NOTE
Excess fuel in the tank can overflow in hot
weather.
Fuel of a lower quality than that specified on
page 245 should not be used as engine
power and fuel consumption can be negatively affected.
WARNING
Fuel which spills on to 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.
IMPORTANT
Use special winter grade fuel during cold
months.
06 Starting and driving
Starting the engine
Before starting the engine
Starting the engine
– Apply the parking brake.
Automatic gearbox
– Gear selector in position P or N.
Manual gearbox
Put the gear lever in neutral and hold the
clutch pedal fully depressed. This is particularly important in very cold conditions.
WARNING
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 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.
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
– Turn the ignition key to position II.
An indicator symbol in the combined
instrument panel shows that engine preheating is underway, see page 41.
– Turn the ignition key to position III when
the indicator symbol goes out.
Autostart (5-cylinder)
With the autostart function, there is no need
to hold the ignition key (or ignition dial on
cars with Keyless Drive, see page 122) in
position III until the engine has started.
Turn the ignition key to the start position and
then release. The starter motor then works
automatically until the engine has started.
NOTE
If the diesel engine is started in extreme
cold without waiting for engine preheating,
then the automatic start sequence can be
delayed for a couple of seconds.
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 filter. 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.
06
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

markets.
119
06 Starting and driving
Ignition switch and steering lock
symbol on the instrument panel illuminates,
and the message SOOT FILTER FULL
SEE OWNER MANUAL is shown on the

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.
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.
06
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 be activated
accidentally.

– Remove the key and turn the steering
wheel to release the tension.
– Hold the steering wheel in this position.
Reinsert the key and make a new attempt
to start the car.
WARNING
Never remove the ignition key from the ignition switch while driving or when the car is
being towed. The steering lock could otherwise be activated, making it impossible to
steer the car.
WARNING
Always remove the ignition key from the
ignition when leaving the car, especially if
there are children in the car.
Make sure the steering lock is activated
when the car is left to reduce the risk of theft.
06 Starting and driving
Starting the engine – Flexifuel
• Do not allow the starter motor to be
engaged for longer than 30 seconds.
• Release the ignition key as soon as the
engine has started.
• The immobiliser is activated in the event of
repeated start attempts. Before the start
attempts can then be repeated the key
must first be turned back to position I or 0.
In the event of starting difficulties
If the engine does not start as above then
proceed as follows:
– Depress the accelerator pedal 1/3 to 1/2.
– Turn the ignition key to position III.
– Release the key when the engine has
started and gradually ease off the accelerator pedal as the engine speed increases.
If the engine still does not start:
– Depress the accelerator pedal and repeat
the last two steps.
Starting in low outside temperatures
Engine block heater
If the temperature is expected to be lower
than –10 °C, then the recommendation is to
increase the concentration of petrol in the
tank by refuelling with unleaded petrol
95 octane if possible.
Approx. 10 litres of 95 octane petrol will
decrease the proportion of bioethanol E 85 in
a three-quarters full tank from 85 % to 70 %
which improves the cold starting properties
considerably.
G019754
General information about starting
with Flexifuel
NOTE
If the tank is only refuelled with
bioethanol E 85 and the engine is not preheated then it will be difficult to start in
extreme cold.
Driveability – adaptation
Idling speed may be uneven after disconnecting the battery or changing fuel type. The
engine then adapts to the new fuel mixture i.e. adaptation.
Adaptation continues for a short time following a change of fuel type. A slightly longer
period of driving is required when the car has
been de-energised.
Connecting the engine block heater
An engine block heater should be used to
facilitate the quick starting of the engine
when the temperature is expected to be
lower than –10 °C and the car has been refuelled with bioethanol E 85. Cars designed for
Flexifuel have an electric engine block heater
as standard equipment1. Starting and driving with a preheated engine involves significantly lower emissions and reduced fuel consumption. For this reason you should aim to
use the engine block heater throughout the
winter months. Read more about Flexifuel’s
bioethanol E 85 fuel on page 245.

D – Drive
D is the normal driving position. The car
automatically shifts up and down depending
on the level of acceleration and speed. The
car should be stationary when D is selected
from position R.
Geartronic manual gear positions
The driver can also change gear manually
using the Geartronic automatic gearbox. The
car engine-brakes when the accelerator
pedal is released.
Manual gearshift mode is obtained by moving the lever from position D to the righthand end position at M. The information display shifts the indication from D to one of the
figures 1-6, depending which gear is
engaged just then, see page 39.
Move the lever forwards towards + (plus) to
change up a gear and release the lever,
which returns to its rest position at M.
Pull the lever back towards – (minus) to
change down a gear and release the lever.
The manual gearshift mode M can be
selected at any time while driving.
06
To return to automatic driving mode: move
the lever to the left-hand end position at D.
Geartronic automatically shifts down if the
driver allows the speed to decrease lower
than a level suitable for the selected gear, in
order to avoid jerking and stalling.
The brake pedal must be depressed to

06 Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
Kick-down1
Mechanical gear selector inhibitor
Automatic gear selector inhibitor
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.
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.
If the accelerator is released from the kickdown position, the gearbox automatically
changes up.

Stationary car with engine running:
Safety function
To prevent overrevving the engine, the gearbox control program has a protective downshift inhibitor which prevents the kick-down
function.
06
Geartronic does not permit downshifting/
kick-down which would result in an engine
speed high enough to damage the engine.
Nothing happens if the driver still tries to shift
down in this way at high engine speed – the
original gear remains engaged.
When kick-down is activated the car can
change one or more gears at a time depending on engine speed. The car changes up
when the engine reaches its maximum speed
in order to prevent damage to the engine.

on diesel cars in manual position.
G020237
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
The gear selector can be moved forward and
back freely between N and D. Other positions are locked with a latch that is released
with the inhibitor button on the gear selector.
With the inhibitor button depressed the lever
can be moved forwards or backwards
between P, R, N and D.
– 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 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.
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.
06 Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
Disengaging the gear selector
inhibitor
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
G018263
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.
In certain cases, it may be necessary to
move the car when it is not driveable, for
example if the battery is flat. Proceed as follows to move the car:
06
1. There is a small cover behind P-R-N-D
on the gear selector panel. Open the rear
edge.
2. Fully insert the key blade from the
remote control.
3. Hold the key blade down and at the
same time move the gear lever out of
the P position.
127
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
128
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 illuminates 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.
engine braking more efficiently 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 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 uses

06 Starting and driving
Brake system
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.
WARNING
06
130
If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols are
illuminated 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 below 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.
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
The Dynamic Stability and Traction Control
system (STC/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.

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
detected 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.
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 138.
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.

Never tow the car to bump start it
Use the towing eye if the car needs to be
towed on the road. The towing eye is
attached in the recess on the right-hand side
of the front or rear bumper.
Fitting the towing eye
1. Take out the towing eye that is located
under the floor hatch in the cargo area.
2. Release the cover (1) on the bumper by
pressing on the marking on the lower
edge of the cover.
3. Screw in the towing eye (3) firmly, right
in up to the flange. Use the wheel
wrench to tighten the towing eye.
4. After use, unscrew the towing eye and
return it in the cargo area. Refit the
cover on the bumper.
06 Starting and driving
Towing and recovery
IMPORTANT
The towing eye is only designed for towing
on roads, not for pulling the car unstuck or
out of a ditch. Call a recovery service for
assistance.
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.
NOTE
On certain cars with fitted towbar the towing eye cannot be secured in the rear
mounting. In which case, secure the tow
rope in the towbar.
For this reason it is advisable to store the
towbar’s towball in the car, see page 150.

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 other battery is 12 volt.
– If the donor battery is in another car,
switch off the engine in the other car and
142
–
ensure that the cars do not touch one
another.
Connect the red jump lead between the
positive terminal on the donor battery (1+)
and the one on the battery of your car (2+).
Connect one of the clamps from 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 procedure. This could cause sparking.
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 the load on
the towball. 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 161.
• Clean the towbar regularly and grease the
towball1.
• Do not tow a heavy trailer when the 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 234.
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.

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.
• Avoid driving with a trailer on inclines of
more than 15 %.

If the car is equipped with a detachable towbar, the towball mounting instructions must
be followed carefully, see page 147.
G014589
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.

Loading
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.
For information on permitted weights, see
page 234.
WARNING
The car’s driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
Loading the cargo area
06
Stop the engine and apply the parking brake
when loading or unloading long objects. The
gear lever or gear selector could be knocked
out of position by long loads, which could set
the car in motion.
To increase the size of the cargo area, the
head restraints can be removed and the
seats folded down, see page 92.
Place the load firmly against the backrest in
front.
• The head rests can be removed so that
they are not damaged.
152
• Put wide loads in the centre.
• Heavy objects should be placed as low as
possible. Avoid placing heavy loads on a
lowered backrest.
• Cover sharp edges with something soft to
avoid damaging the upholstery or the
large glass surface of the boot lid.
• Secure all loads to the load retaining eyelets with straps or web lashings.
WARNING
A loose object weighing 20 kg can, in a
frontal collision at a speed of 50 km/h, carry
the impact of an item weighing 1000 kg.
WARNING
Never load cargo above the backrest.
The protection provided by the inflatable
curtain in the headlining may be compromised or eliminated by high loads.
Always secure the load. During heavy braking the load may otherwise shift, causing
personal injury.
Load carriers
To avoid damaging the car and for maximum
possible safety while driving, it is recommended to use load carriers specially
designed for your car by Volvo.
Carefully follow the installation instructions
supplied with the carriers.
• 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. Put the heaviest objects at the
bottom.
• The size of the area exposed to the wind,
and therefore fuel consumption, increase
with the load’s size.
• Drive gently. Avoid quick accelerations,
heavy braking and taking curves hard.
WARNING
The car’s centre of gravity and driving characteristics are altered by roof loads.

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 metal 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 160.

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.
156
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.
G020323
Winter tyres
Tread wear indicators
The correct tyre pressure results in more
even wear, see page 161. 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 for an inspection 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 160 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 millimetres.
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 car model, and
tyre and rim dimensions. Consult an authorised Volvo workshop.

Rims and wheel nuts
Steel rims – standard wheel nuts (1)
Steel rims are normally mounted with the
standard wheel nuts, but the bulge acorn
variety may also be used.

WARNING
1
G020324
Never use standard nuts for aluminium
rims. The wheels can come loose.
Standard (1) and bulge acorn (2) wheel nuts
07
Only use rims that are tested and approved
by Volvo and which are Volvo genuine accessories. There are two types of wheel nut,
depending on whether the rims are made of
steel or aluminium. Tighten the wheel nuts to
130 Nm. Check the torque with a torque
wrench.
IMPORTANT
The wheel nuts should be tightened to
130 Nm. Overtightening can damage the
nuts and the bolts.
Spare wheel Temporary Spare
The spare wheel1 is only intended to be used
for the short time it takes to get the ordinary
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.
Never drive faster than 80 km/h with a spare
wheel on the car.
Aluminium rims – bulge acorn wheel
nuts (2)
Only use the bulge acorn variety of nuts with
aluminium rims. These differ markedly from
other nut types as they have a rotating conical washer.
IMPORTANT
The car must never be driven fitted with
more than one "Temporary Spare" wheel.
NOTE
These nuts may also be used with steel
rims.
Locking wheel nuts
Locking wheel nuts can be used on both aluminium and steel rims. If steel rims with locking nuts are used in combination with wheel
covers, the locking wheel nut should be
mounted on the bolt nearest the air valve.
Otherwise the wheel cover cannot be fitted to
the rim.

07 Wheels and tyres
General
Summer and winter wheels
snow and slush out of the way are adversely
affected.
Tyres with the greatest tread depth should
always be fitted to the rear of the car (to
decrease the risk of skidding).
G020325
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop if you
are uncertain about tread depth.
The arrow shows the tyre’s direction of rotation
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
tread patterns which are designed to only
rotate in one direction have the direction of
rotation marked with an arrow on the tyre.
07
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 righthand sides, or vice versa. If the tyre is

Tyre pressure
Recommended tyre pressure
Checking the tyre pressure
Check the tyre pressure regularly.
NOTE
G020791
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 load and speed conditions.
Stated on the decal:
07
• 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 increase fuel consumption, shorten tyre lifespan and impair
the car’s roadholding. Driving on tyres with
tyre pressure that is too low could also result
in the tyres overheating and disintegrating.
For information on the correct tyre pressure,
refer to the tyre pressure table on page 161.
The specified tyre pressures refer to "cold
tyres". ("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.

Tyre pressure affects travelling comfort, road
noise and steering characteristics.

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
172
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.
Chromed wheels
IMPORTANT
Rim cleaning agents can cause stains on
chrome-plated wheels. Wash using a
sponge, car shampoo and plenty of lukewarm water.
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, including the parking brake, to ensure
that moisture and corrosion do not attack
the brake linings 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, rubber and trim
components
A special cleaning agent available from Volvo
dealers is recommended for cleaning coloured plastic parts, rubber and trim components (such as glossy trim mouldings). When
using such a cleaning agent the instructions
must be followed carefully.
08 Car care
Cleaning
Polishing and waxing
IMPORTANT
Avoid waxing and polishing on plastic and
rubber.
Polishing glossy trim mouldings could wear
away or damage the glossy surface.
Polishing agent that contains abrasive must
not be used.
Polish and wax the car if the paintwork is dull
or to give the paintwork extra protection.
The car does not need to be polished until it
is at least one year old. However, the car can
be waxed during this time. Do not polish or
wax the car in direct sunlight.
Wash and dry the car thoroughly before you
begin polishing or waxing. Clean off asphalt
and tar stains using Volvo tar remover or
white spirit. More stubborn stains can be
removed using fine rubbing paste designed
for car paintwork.
Polish first with a polish and then wax with
liquid or solid wax. Follow the instructions on
the packaging carefully. Many preparations
contain both polish and wax.
Cleaning door mirrors and front door
windows with water-repellent coating
(option)
Never use products such as car wax,
degreaser or similar on mirror/glass surfaces
as this could ruin their water-repellent properties.
Take care when cleaning so as not to damage the glass surface.
To avoid damaging glass surfaces when
removing ice – only use plastic ice scrapers.
There is natural wear of the water-repellent
coating.
Treatment with a special finishing agent
available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the water-repellent properties. This should be used first after
three years and then each year.
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.

08 Car care
Cleaning
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 leather upholstery is chromium-free
and approved in accordance with the
Öko-Tex 100 standard.
08
The leather is refined and processed so that
it retains its natural characteristics. It is given
a protective coating, but regular cleaning is
required in order to maintain both characteristics and appearance. Volvo offers a comprehensive product for the cleaning and
treatment of leather upholstery which, when
used in accordance with the instructions,
preserves the leather’s protective coating.
After a period of use the natural appearance
of the leather will nevertheless emerge,
depending more or less on the surface
174
texture of the leather. This is a natural maturing of the leather and shows that it is a natural product.
To achieve best results Volvo recommends
cleaning and application of the protective
cream once to four times per year (or more if
required). Ask a Volvo dealer about Volvo’s
Leather care product.
IMPORTANT
Never use strong solvents. Such products
may damage fabric, vinyl and leather upholstery.
IMPORTANT
Note that materials with colour that runs
when dry (new jeans, suede garments etc.)
may discolour the upholstery material.
Washing instructions for leather
upholstery
– Pour the leather cleaner on the dampened
sponge and squeeze out a strong foam.
– Work the dirt away with gentle circular
movements.
– Dab with the sponge accurately on the
stains. Allow the sponge to absorb the
stain. Do not rub.
– Wipe off with soft paper or a cloth and
allow the leather to dry completely.
Protective treatment of leather
upholstery
– Pour a small amount of the protective
cream on the felted cloth and massage in
a thin layer of cream with gentle circular
movements on the leather.
– Allow the leather to dry for 20 minutes
before use.
The leather has now been given improved
protection against stains and improved
UV protection.
Treating stains on interior plastic, metal
and wood parts
A special cleaning agent, available from
Volvo dealers, is recommended for cleaning
interior parts and surfaces. Do not scrape or
rub stains. Never use strong stain removers.
Cleaning seatbelts
Use water and a synthetic detergent. A special textile cleaning agent is available from
your Volvo dealer. Make sure the seatbelt is
dry before allowing it to retract.
08 Car care
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.

It is important that the correct colour is used.
The colour code number (1) is shown on the
data plate, see page 232.
If the stone chip has penetrated to the
bare metal
– Stick a piece of masking tape over the
damaged surface. Then remove the tape
to remove any loose paint.
– 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.
Before touching up paintwork, the car must
be clean and dry and at a temperature
above 15 °C.

08 Car care
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.
Maintain 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 approximately 12 years.
After that time, it should be treated at threeyear intervals. If the car needs further treatment, please contact an authorised Volvo
workshop.

Recording vehicle data
One or more of the computers in your Volvo
are capable of recording detailed information. This information is intended for use in
research to enhance safety and for diagnosing faults in some of the in-car systems. The
data may include details regarding seatbelt
use by the driver and passengers, the functions of various vehicle systems and modules, and status information about the
engine, throttle, steering, brakes and other
systems. This data can also include details of
the way the car is driven. This type of information can include, without being limited to,
specific details such as vehicle speed, the
use of the brake and accelerator pedals and
steering wheel position. This latter type of
data can be stored for a limited period while
the car is being driven and subsequently
during a collision or a near-collision. Volvo
Car Corporation will not disclose the stored
information without consent. However, Volvo
Car Corporation may be forced to disclose
the information due to national legislation.
Volvo Car Corporation and authorised Volvo
workshops may also read and use the information.
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.
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).
This can produce abnormally high oil
temperature or oil consumption.
09 Maintenance and service
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

• 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.
09
Check regularly
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.

Diesel
Fuel system
Diesel engines are sensitive to contaminants,
such as high volumes of sulphur particles for
example. Only use diesel fuel from a wellknown producers. Never use diesel of dubious quality.
At low temperatures (–40 °C to –6 °C), a
paraffin precipitate may form in the diesel
fuel, which can lead to ignition problems.
Special diesel fuel designed for low temperatures around freezing point is available from
the major oil companies. This fuel is less viscous at low temperatures and reduces the
risk of paraffin precipitate.
The risk of condensation in the fuel tank is
reduced if the tank is kept well filled. When
refuelling, check that the area around the fuel
filler pipe is clean. Avoid spilling fuel onto the
paintwork. Wash off any spillage with detergent and water.
IMPORTANT
Only ever use fuel that fulfils the European
diesel standard, see page 245.
09
Draining condensation from the fuel
filter
IMPORTANT
Diesel type fuels which must not be used:
special additives, Marine Diesel Fuel, fuel
oil, RME1 (Rape Methyl Ester) and vegetable oil. These fuels do not fulfil the requirements in accordance with Volvo
recommendations and generate increased
wear and engine damage not covered by
the Volvo warranty.
1Diesel
fuel may contain a certain amount of

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
Certain special additives remove the water
separation in the fuel filter.

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.

Dipstick, diesel engines
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
the lamp for oil pressure is used. Other variants have an oil level sensor, and then the
driver is informed via the warning symbol in
the centre of the instrument unit as well as by
09 Maintenance and service
Oils and fluids
display texts. Certain models have both variants. Contact an authorised Volvo dealer for
more information.
Checking the oil
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.
G020336
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.
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 237 – 238 for capacities.
09
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 237 – 238 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.

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.
For capacities, see page 241.

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.
G020333
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.
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 237.
The fluid should be changed annually on cars
driven in conditions requiring hard, frequent
braking, such as driving in mountains or

Battery care
The service life and function of the battery is
influenced by factors such as the number of
starts, discharging, driving style, driving conditions and climatic conditions.
NOTE
An expended battery must be recycled in an
environmentally responsible manner as it
contains lead.
WARNING
Batteries can generate oxyhydrogen gas,
which is highly explosive. A spark, which
can be generated if you connect the jump
leads incorrectly, is sufficient to make the
battery explode. The battery also 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 advice immediately.
NOTE
The life of the battery is shortened if it
becomes discharged repeatedly.

from damage by short circuiting and overloading.
The fuses are in two different locations in the
car:
• Relay/Fuse box in the engine compartment
• Relay/fuse box in the passenger compartment.
Changing
If an electrical component or function does
not work, it 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.
Each fuse box has space for several spare
fuses. If the same fuse blows repeatedly it
means that there is a fault in the component.

traffic information or news.
• Receives text information on current radio
programme.
Some radio stations do not use RDS or only
some if its functionality.
Programme functions
In FM mode, the radio can search for stations
with certain programme types. If a desired
programme type is found, the radio can
switch stations, interrupting the audio source
currently in use. For example, if the CD player
is in use, it is paused. The interrupting transmission is played at a preset volume; see
page 215. The radio returns to the previous
audio source and volume when the set programme type is no longer broadcast.
The programme functions alarm (ALARM),
traffic information (TP), news (NEWS), and
programme types (PTY) interrupt one
another in order of priority, where alarm has
the highest priority and programme types
has the lowest. For further programme interruption settings, see EON and REG on

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.

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.

can be driven on any 95 octane unleaded petrol, or bioethanol E 85, as well as all possible combinations of these two fuels.
The car consumes more fuel when driving on bioethanol E 85 than with petrol. This is because bioethanol has a lower energy content than petrol.
244
11 Specifications
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.
NOTE
Extreme weather conditions, towing a trailer
or driving at high altitudes in combination
with fuel grade are factors that could affect
the car’s performance.
Petrol
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.
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.
Diesel
Diesel must fulfil the EN 590 or JIS K2204
standards. The diesel engine fuel system is
sensitive to contaminants, see page 183.
Bioethanol E85
Do not modify the fuel system or its components, and do not replace components with
parts that are not specially designed for use
with bioethanol.
WARNING
11
Always avoid inhaling fuel fumes and fuel
splashing in the eyes.
If fuel gets into your eyes, take out contact
lenses if worn and rinse your eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and seek
medical attention.
Never swallow fuel. Fuel such as petrol,
bioethanol and mixtures of the two are highly toxic and could cause permanent injury or
be fatal if swallowed. Seek medical attention immediately if fuel has been swallowed.
WARNING
Methanol must not be used. A decal on the
inside of the fuel filler flap shows the correct
alternative fuel.
The use of components not designed for
bioethanol engines could cause fire, injury
or engine damage.
245
11 Specifications
Fuel
IMPORTANT
11
The use of other fuels could cause engine
damage and impaired performance. It also
invalidates Volvo’s warranties as well as any
supplementary service agreement.
Refuel with petrol before long-stay parking
to avoid the risk of corrosion. Small quantities of contaminants could be present in
bioethanol E85.
Reserve fuel can
The reserve fuel can should be filled with petrol, see page 121.
WARNING
Ethanol is sensitive to sparks, and explosive
gases could form in the reserve fuel can if it
is refuelled with ethanol.
246
11 Specifications
Catalytic converter
General
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
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 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.
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve
fuel economy.
An oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the engine.
This value is fed into an electronic system
that continuously controls the injectors. The
ratio of 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).
