CAR CARE
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.
Leather upholstery requires regular cleaning.
Treat with leather care products, 1–4 times per
year or as necessary. Leather care products are
available at your Volvo dealer.

If the BLIS’ indicator lamp illuminates despite
there being no vehicle within the blind spot,
the cause could be for example, reflection
from shiny wet road surface, own shadow on
light road surface or low sun in the camera.
In the event of a direct fault in the system the
display shows the text Blis Service Required.

as long as necessary – all braking stops
when the brake pedal is released.
