Introduction
Environment
Volvo and the environment
Volvo is committed to the well being of its customers. As a natural part of this commitment,
we care about the environment in which we all
live. Caring for the environment means an
everyday involvement in reducing our environmental impact. Volvo's environmental activities
are based on a holistic view, which means we
consider the overall environmental impact of a
product throughout its complete life cycle. In
this context, design, production, product use,
and recycling are all important considerations.
In production, Volvo has partly or completely
phased out several chemicals including CFCs,
lead chromates, asbestos, and cadmium; and
reduced the number of chemicals used in our
plants 50% since 1991.
Volvo was the first in the world to introduce into
production a three-way catalytic converter with
a Lambda sond, now called the heated oxygen
sensor, in 1976. The current version of this
highly efficient system reduces emissions of
harmful substances (CO, HC, NOx) from the
exhaust pipe by approximately 95 – 99% and
the search to eliminate the remaining emissions continues. Volvo is the only automobile
manufacturer to offer CFC-free retrofit kits for
the air conditioning system of all models as far
back as the 1975 model 240. Advanced electronic engine controls and cleaner fuels are
bringing us closer to our goal. In addition to
12
continuous environmental refinement of conventional gasoline-powered internal combustion engines, Volvo is actively looking at
advanced technology alternative-fuel vehicles.
When you drive a Volvo, you become our partner in the work to lessen the car's impact on
the environment. To reduce your vehicle's
environmental impact, you can:
• Maintain proper air pressure in your tires.
Tests have shown decreased fuel economy with improperly inflated tires.
• Follow the recommended maintenance
schedule in your Warranty and Service
Records Information booklet.
• Drive at a constant speed whenever possible.
• See a trained and qualified Volvo service
technician as soon as possible for inspection if the check engine (malfunction indicator) light illuminates, or stays on after the
vehicle has started.
• Properly dispose of any vehicle-related
waste such as used motor oil, used batteries, brake pads, etc.
• When cleaning your vehicle, please use
genuine Volvo car care products. All Volvo
car care products are formulated to be
environmentally friendly.
Recycling
As part of Volvo’s commitment to the environment, it is essential for the vehicle to be recycled in an environmentally sound way. Almost
the entire vehicle can be recycled and for that
reason, the vehicle’s final owner is requested
to contact a Volvo retailer for information about
approved and certified recycling facilities.
Introduction
Important warnings
Driver distraction
A driver has a responsibility to do everything
possible to ensure his or her own safety and
the safety of passengers in the vehicle and others sharing the roadway. Avoiding distractions
is part of that responsibility.
Driver distraction results from driver activities
that are not directly related to controlling the
vehicle in the driving environment. Your new
Volvo is, or can be, equipped with many feature-rich entertainment and communication
systems. These include hands-free cellular telephones, navigation systems, and multipurpose audio systems. You may also own other
portable electronic devices for your own convenience. When used properly and safely, they
enrich the driving experience. Improperly used,
any of these could cause a distraction.
For all of these systems, we want to provide the
following warning that reflects the strong Volvo
concern for your safety. Never use these devices or any feature of your vehicle in a way that
distracts you from the task of driving safely.
Distraction can lead to a serious accident. In
addition to this general warning, we offer the
following guidance regarding specific newer
features that may be found in your vehicle:
• Never use a hand-held cellular telephone
while driving. Some jurisdictions prohibit
cellular telephone use by a driver while the
vehicle is moving.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation system, set and make changes to your
travel itinerary only with the vehicle parked.
• Never program your audio system while
the vehicle is moving. Program radio presets with the vehicle parked, and use your
programmed presets to make radio use
quicker and simpler.
• Never use portable computers or personal
digital assistants while the vehicle is moving.
Accessory installation
• We strongly recommend that Volvo owners
install only genuine, Volvo-approved
accessories, and that accessory installations be performed only by a trained and
qualified Volvo service technician.
• Accessories that have not been approved
by Volvo may or may not be specifically
tested for compatibility with your vehicle.
Additionally, an inexperienced installer
may not be familiar with some of your car's
systems.
• Any of your car's performance and safety
systems could be adversely affected if you
install accessories that Volvo has not tested, or if you allow accessories to be installed by someone unfamiliar with your vehicle.
• Damage caused by unapproved or
improperly installed accessories may not
be covered by your new vehicle warranty.
See your Warranty and Service Records
Information booklet for more warranty
information. Volvo assumes no responsibility for death, injury, or expenses that
may result from the installation of non-genuine accessories.
• Genuine Volvo accessories are tested to
ensure compatibility with the performance,
safety, and emission systems in your vehicle. Additionally, a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician knows where
accessories may and may not be safely
installed in your Volvo. In all cases, please
consult a trained and qualified Volvo service technician before installing any accessory in or on your vehicle.

Occupant safety
Volvo's concern for safety
Safety is Volvo's cornerstone. Our concern
dates back to 1927 when the first Volvo rolled
off the production line. Three-point seat belts
(a Volvo invention), safety cages, and energyabsorbing impact zones were designed into
Volvo vehicles long before it was fashionable
or required by government regulation.
We will not compromise our commitment to
safety. We continue to seek out new safety
features and to refine those already in our vehicles. You can help. We would appreciate hearing your suggestions about improving automobile safety. We also want to know if you ever
have a safety concern with your vehicle. Call us
in the U.S. at: 1-800-458-1552 or in Canada at:
1-800-663-8255.
Occupant safety reminders
How safely you drive doesn't depend on how
old you are but rather on:
• How well you see.
• Your ability to concentrate.
• How quickly you make decisions under
stress to avoid an accident.
The following suggestions are intended to help
you cope with the ever changing traffic environment.
16
• Never drink and drive.
• If you are taking any medication, consult
your physician about its potential effects
on your driving abilities.
• Take a driver-retraining course.
• Have your eyes checked regularly.
• Keep your windshield and headlights
clean.
• Replace wiper blades when they start to
leave streaks.
• Take into account the traffic, road, and
weather conditions, particularly with
regard to stopping distance.
• Never send text messages while driving.
• Refrain from using or minimize the use of a
cell phone while driving.

Seat belts
General information
in the event of a collision, limits the peak forces
exerted by the seat belt on the occupant.
Fastening a seat belt
Buckling
Pull the belt out far enough to insert the latch
plate into the receptacle until a distinct click is
heard. The seat belt retractor is normally
"unlocked" and you can move freely, provided
that the shoulder belt is not pulled out too far.
NOTE
Each seat belt (except for the driver's belt)
is equipped with the ALR/ELR function,
which is designed to help keep the seat belt
taut. ALR/ELR activates if the seat belt is
pulled out as far as possible. If this is done,
a sound from the seat belt retractor will be
audible, which is normal, and the seat belt
will be pulled taut and locked in place. This
function is automatically disabled when the
seat belt is unbuckled and fully retracted.
Seat belt retractor
The seat belt retractor will lock up in the following situations:
Adjusting the seat belt
Seat belts should always be worn by all occupants of your vehicle. Children should be properly restrained, using an infant, car, or booster
seat determined by age, weight and height.
Volvo also believes no child should sit in the
front seat of a vehicle.
Most states and provinces make it mandatory
for occupants of a vehicle to use seat belts.
Seat belt pretensioners
All seat belts are equipped with pretensioners
that reduce slack in the belts. These pretensioners are triggered in situations where the
front or side impact airbags deploy, and in certain impacts from the rear. The front seat belts
also include a tension reducing device which,

if the belt is pulled out rapidly
during braking and acceleration
if the vehicle is leaning excessively
when driving in turns
if the Automatic Locking Retractor/Emergency Locking Retractor (ALR/ELR) is activated
See also page 38 for information about using
a seat belt's ALR/ELR function to anchor a
child seat.
When wearing the seat belt remember:
• The belt should not be twisted or turned.
• The lap section of the belt must be positioned low on the hips (not pressing against
the abdomen).
• Make sure that the shoulder belt is rolled
up into its retractor and that the shoulder
and lap belts are taut.
Unbuckling the seat belt
To remove the seat belt, press the red section
on the seat belt receptacle. Before exiting the
vehicle, check that the seat belt retracts fully
after being unbuckled. If necessary, guide the
belt back into the retractor slot.
01 Safety
Seat belts
Check periodically that the seat belts are in
good condition. Use water and a mild detergent for cleaning. Check seat belt mechanism
function as follows: attach the seat belt and pull
rapidly on the strap.
WARNING
•
Never repair the belt yourself; have this
work done by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician only.
•
Any device used to induce slack into the
shoulder belt portion of the three-point
belt system will have a detrimental
effect on the amount of protection available to you in the event of a collision.
•
The seat back should not be tilted too
far back. The shoulder belt must be taut
in order to function properly.
•
Do not use child safety seats or child
booster cushions/backrests in the front
passenger's seat. We also recommend
that children who have outgrown these
devices sit in the rear seat with the seat
belt properly fastened.
WARNING
Never use a seat belt for more than one
occupant. Never wear the shoulder portion
of the belt under the arm, behind the back
or otherwise out of position. Such use could
cause injury in the event of an accident. As
seat belts lose much of their strength when
exposed to violent stretching, they should
be replaced after any collision, even if they
appear to be undamaged.

light will be on for a total of 6 seconds from the
time the ignition is switched on, regardless of
whether or not the seat belts are fastened.
If the front seat belts are unbuckled while the
vehicle is in motion, the audible signal and

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 ensure that it fits close to the
body without any twists.
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

properly, the general warning symbol illuminates and a text message will be displayed.
See also page 76 and page 78 for more
information about indicator and warning symbols.
WARNING
•
Warning symbols in the instrument panel
As an enhancement to the three-point seat
belts, your Volvo is equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). Volvo's SRS
consists of seat belt pretensioners, front airbags, side impact airbags, a front passenger
occupant weight sensor, and inflatable curtains. All of these systems are monitored by the
SRS control module. An SRS warning light in
the instrument panel (see the illustration) illuminates when the ignition is in modes I, II, or
III, and will normally go out after approximately
6 seconds if no faults are detected in the system.
•
If the SRS warning light stays on after
the engine has started or if it illuminates
while you are driving, have the vehicle
inspected by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician as soon as
possible.
Never try to repair any component or
part of the SRS yourself. Any interference in the system could cause malfunction and serious injury. All work on
these systems should be performed by
a trained and qualified Volvo service
technician.
01
WARNING
If your vehicle has been subjected to flood
conditions (e.g., soaked carpeting/standing
water on the floor of the vehicle) or if your
vehicle has become flood-damaged in any
way, do not attempt to start the vehicle or
insert the remote key into the ignition slot
before disconnecting the battery (see
below). This may cause airbag deployment
which could result in personal injury. Have
the vehicle towed to a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for repairs.
Automatic transmission:
Before attempting to tow the vehicle:
1. Switch off the ignition for at least
10 minutes and disconnect the battery.
2. Follow the instructions for manually
overriding the shiftlock system on page
117.
Where applicable, a text message will also be
displayed when the SRS warning light illuminates. If this warning symbol is not functioning

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
Front airbags
The passenger's side front airbag is folded
behind a panel located above the glove compartment.
G018665
WARNING
The front airbag system
The front airbags supplement the three-point
seat belts. For these airbags to provide the
protection intended, seat belts must be worn
at all times.
The front airbag system includes gas generators surrounded by the airbags, and deceleration sensors that activate the gas generators,
causing the airbags to be inflated with nitrogen
gas.
Location of the passenger's side front airbag
As the movement of the seats' occupants compresses the airbags, some of the gas is expelled at a controlled rate to provide better cushioning. Both seat belt pretensioners also
deploy, minimizing seat belt slack. The entire
process, including inflation and deflation of the
airbags, takes approximately one fifth of a second.
The location of the front airbags is indicated by
SRS AIRBAG embossed on the steering wheel
pad and above the glove compartment, and by
decals on both sun visors and on the front and
far right side of the dash.
The driver's side front airbag is folded and
located in the steering wheel hub.
22
•
The airbags in the vehicle are designed
to be a SUPPLEMENT to–not a replacement for–the three-point seat belts. For
maximum protection, wear seat belts at
all times. Be aware that no system can
prevent all possible injuries that may
occur in an accident.
•
Never drive with your hands on the
steering wheel pad/airbag housing.
•
The front airbags are designed to help
prevent serious injury. Deployment
occurs very quickly and with considerable force. During normal deployment
and depending on variables such as
seating position, one may experience
abrasions, bruises, swellings, or other
injuries as a result from deployment of
one or both of the airbags.
•
When installing any accessory equipment, make sure that the front airbag
system is not damaged. Any interference in the system could cause malfunction.
01 Safety
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
Front airbag deployment
• The front airbags are designed to deploy
during certain frontal or front-angular collisions, impacts, or decelerations, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and
object impacted. The airbags may also
deploy in certain non-frontal collisions
where rapid deceleration occurs.
• The SRS sensors, which trigger the front
airbags, are designed to react to both the
impact of the collision and the inertial
forces generated by it, and to determine if
the intensity of the collision is sufficient for
the seat belt pretensioners and/or airbags
to be deployed.
However, not all frontal collisions activate the
front airbags.
• If the collision involves a nonrigid object
(e.g., a snow drift or bush), or a rigid, fixed
object at a low speed, the front airbags will
not necessarily deploy.
• Front airbags do not normally deploy in a
side impact collision, in a collision from the
rear or in a rollover situation.
• The amount of damage to the bodywork
does not reliably indicate if the airbags
should have deployed or not.

Airbag decals
Deployment of front airbags occurs only
one time during an accident. In a collision where deployment occurs, the airbags and seat belt pretensioners activate. Some noise occurs and a small
amount of powder is released. The
release of the powder may appear as
smoke-like matter. This is a normal
characteristic and does not indicate fire.
Volvo's front airbags use special sensors that are integrated with the front
seat buckles. The point at which the airbag deploys is determined by whether
or not the seat belt is being used, as well
as the severity of the collision.
Airbag decal on the outside of both sun visors
Collisions can occur where only one of
the airbags deploys. If the impact is less
severe, but severe enough to present a
clear injury risk, the airbags are triggered at partial capacity. If the impact is
more severe, the airbags are triggered
at full capacity.

Occupant Weight Sensor
General information
The OWS works with sensors that are part of
the front passenger's seat and seat belt. The
sensors are designed to detect the presence of
a properly seated occupant and determine if
the passenger's side front airbag should be
enabled (may inflate) or disabled (will not
inflate).

Volvo recommends that ALL occupants (adults
and children) shorter than 4 feet 7 inches
(140 cm) be seated in the back seat of any
vehicle with a front passenger side airbag, and
be properly restrained for their size and weight.
For child safety recommendations,see
page 38.
The Occupant Weight Sensor (OWS) is
designed to meet the regulatory requirements
of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard
(FMVSS) 208 and is designed to disable (will

• the system determines that an infant is
present in a rear-facing infant seat that is
installed according to the manufacturer's
instructions,
• the system determines that a small child is
present in a forward-facing child restraint
that is installed according to the manufacturer's instructions,
• the system determines that a small child is
present in a booster seat,
• a front passenger takes his/her weight off
of the seat for a period of time,
• a child or a small person occupies the front
passenger's seat.
The OWS uses a PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF
indicator lamp which will illuminate and stay on
to remind you that the passenger's side front
airbag is disabled. The PASSENGER AIRBAG
OFF indicator lamp is located in the overhead
console, near the base of the rearview mirror.
NOTE
When the ignition is switched on, the OWS
indicator light will go on for up to 10 seconds
while the system performs a self-diagnostic
test.
However, if a fault is detected in the system:
• The OWS indicator light will stay on
• The SRS warning light (see page 21) will
come on and stay on
• The message Pass. Airbag OFF Service
urgen-64 will be displayed in the information display.
WARNING
If a fault in the system is detected and indicated as described, be aware that the passenger's side front airbag will not deploy in
the event of a collision. In this case, the SRS
system and Occupant Weight Sensor
should be inspected by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician as soon as
possible.

the passenger's side front airbag in the event
of a collision anytime the system senses that a
person of adult size is sitting properly in the
front passenger's seat. The PASSENGER AIR-
centered on the seat cushion, with the person's legs comfortably extended.
• Restart the vehicle and have the person
remain in this position for about two
minutes. This will allow the system to
detect that person and enable the passenger's frontal airbag.
• If the PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF indicator
lamp remains on even after this, the person
should be advised to ride in the rear seat.
This condition reflects limitations of the OWS
classification capability. It does not indicate

Whiplash Protection System – WHIPS
General information
Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) –
front seats only
The WHIPS system consists of specially
designed hinges and brackets on the front seat
backrests designed to help absorb some of the
energy generated in a collision from the rear
(when the vehicle is rear-ended).
In the event of a collision of this type, the hinges
and brackets of the front seat backrests are
designed to change position slightly to allow
the backrest/head restraint to help support the
occupant's head before moving slightly rearward. This movement helps absorb some of
the forces that could result in whiplash.
WARNING
•
The WHIPS system is designed to supplement the other safety systems in
your vehicle. For this system to function
properly, the three-point seat belt must
be worn. Please be aware that no system can prevent all possible injuries that
may occur in an accident.
•
The WHIPS system is designed to function in certain collisions from the rear,
depending on the crash severity, angle
and speed.
01
WARNING
•
Occupants in the front seats must never
sit out of position. The occupant's back
must be as upright as comfort allows
and be against the seat back with the
seat belt properly fastened.
•
If your vehicle has been involved in a
rear-end collision, the front seat backrests must be inspected by a trained
and qualified Volvo service technician,
even if the seats appear to be undamaged. Certain components in the
WHIPS system may need to be
replaced.

01 Safety
Rollover Protection System (ROPS)
01
Volvo’s Rollover Protection System utilizes the
Roll Stability Control (RSC) function, which is
designed to help minimize the risk of a rollover
in emergency maneuvers or if a skid should
occur.
RSC uses a gyroscopic sensor that registers
the amount of change in the lateral angle at
which the vehicle is leaning. Using this information, RSC calculates the likelihood of a rollover. If there is an imminent risk of a rollover,
the Dynamic Stability and Traction Control system (DSTC) is activated, power to the engine is
cut and the brakes are applied to one or more
of the wheels until the vehicle regains stability.
For additional information on DSTC, see
page 149.
WARNING
The vehicle’s stability systems, including
ROPS and RSC, do not replace the driver’s
responsibility for operating the vehicle in a
safe manner. Speed and driving style
should always be adapted to the current

01 Safety
Child safety
Children should be seated safely
Volvo recommends the proper use of restraint
systems for all occupants including children.
Remember that, regardless of age and size, a
child should always be properly restrained in a
vehicle.
Your vehicle is also equipped with ISOFIX/
LATCH attachments, which make it more convenient to install child seats.
Some restraint systems for children are
designed to be secured in the vehicle by lap
belts or the lap portion of a lap-shoulder belt.
Such child restraint systems can help protect
children in vehicles in the event of an accident
only if they are used properly. However, children could be endangered in a crash if the child
restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle. Failure to follow the installation instructions
for your child restraint can result in your child
striking the vehicle's interior in a sudden stop.
Holding a child in your arms is NOT a suitable
substitute for a child restraint system. In an
accident, a child held in a person's arms can
be crushed between the vehicle's interior and
an unrestrained person. The child could also be
injured by striking the interior, or by being ejected from the vehicle during a sudden maneuver
or impact. The same can also happen if the
infant or child rides unrestrained on the seat.
Other occupants should also be properly
restrained to help reduce the chance of injuring
or increasing the injury of a child.
All states and provinces have legislation governing how and where children should be carried in a vehicle. Find out the regulations existing in your state or province. Recent accident
statistics have shown that children are safer in
rear seating positions than front seating positions when properly restrained. A child restraint
system can help protect a child in a vehicle.
Here's what to look for when selecting a child
restraint system:
It should have a label certifying that it meets
applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standards (FMVSS 213) – or in Canada,
CMVSS 213.
Make sure the child restraint system is
approved for the child's height, weight and
development – the label required by the standard or regulation, or instructions for infant
restraints, typically provide this information.
01
When a child has outgrown the child safety
seat, you should use the rear seat with the
standard seat belt fastened. The best way to
help protect the child here is to place the child
on a cushion so that the seat belt is properly
located on the hips (see the illustration on page
46). Legislation in your state or province may
mandate the use of a child seat or cushion in
combination with the seat belt, depending on
the child's age and/or size. Please check local
regulations.
A specially designed and tested booster cushion and backrest can be obtained from your
Volvo retailer.
USA: for children weighing 33 – 80 lbs.
(15 – 36 kg) and 38 – 54 inches (97 – 137 cm)
in height
Canada: for children weighing 40 – 80 lbs.
(18 – 36 kg) and 40 – 54 inches (102 – 137 cm)
in height
In using any child restraint system, we urge you
to carefully look over the instructions that are
provided with the restraint. Be sure you understand them and can use the device properly
and safely in this vehicle. A misused child
restraint system can result in increased injuries
for both the infant or child and other occupants
in the vehicle.

Child safety
WARNING
•
•
Do not use child safety seats or child
booster cushions/backrests in the front
passenger's seat. We also recommend
that children under 4 feet 7 inches
(140 cm) in height who have outgrown
these devices sit in the rear seat with the
seat belt fastened.
On hot days, the temperature in the
vehicle interior can rise very quickly.
Exposure to these high temperatures
for even a short period of time can
cause heat-related injury or death.
Small children are particularly at risk.
Child seat should always be registered. See
page 39 for more information.
When attaching the seat belt to a child
seat:
1. Attach the seat belt to the child seat
according to the child seat manufacturer's
instructions.
2. Pull the seat belt out as far as possible.
3. Insert the seat belt latch plate into the
buckle (lock) in the usual way.
4. Release the seat belt and pull it taut around
the child seat.
A sound from the seat belt retractor will be
audible at this time and is normal. The belt will
now be locked in place. This function is automatically disabled when the seat belt is
unlocked and the belt is fully retracted.
WARNING
Automatic Locking Retractor/
Emergency Locking Retractor (ALR/
ELR)
To make child seat installation easier, each
seat belt (except for the driver's belt) is equipped with a locking mechanism to help keep the
seat belt taut.
Do not use child safety seats or child
booster cushions/backrests in the front
passenger's seat. We also recommend that
children who have outgrown these devices
sit in the rear seat with the seat belt properly
fastened.
Volvo's recommendations
Why does Volvo believe that no child should sit
in the front seat of a car? It's quite simple really.
A front airbag is a very powerful device
designed, by law, to help protect an adult.
Because of the size of the airbag and its speed
of inflation, a child should never be placed in
the front seat, even if he or she is properly belted or strapped into a child safety seat. Volvo
has been an innovator in safety for over seventy-five years, and we'll continue to do our
part. But we need your help. Please remember
to put your children in the back seat, and
buckle them up.
Volvo has some very specific
recommendations:
• Always wear your seat belt.
• Airbags are a SUPPLEMENTAL safety
device which, when used with a threepoint seat belt can help reduce serious
injuries during certain types of accidents.
Volvo recommends that you do not disconnect the airbag system in your vehicle.
• Volvo strongly recommends that everyone
in the vehicle be properly restrained.
• Volvo recommends that ALL occupants
(adults and children) shorter than 4 feet
7 inches (140 cm) be seated in the back

Child restraint registration and recalls
Registering a child restraint
Child restraints could be recalled for safety
reasons. You must register your child restraint
to be reached in a recall. To stay informed
about child safety seat recalls, be sure to fill out
and return the registration card that comes
with new child restraints.
Child restraint recall information is readily available in both the U.S. and Canada. For recall
information in the U.S., call the U.S. Government's Auto Safety Hotline at 1-800-424-9393.

Infant seat
There are three main types of child restraint
systems: infant seats, convertible seats, and
booster cushions. They are classified according to the child's age and size.
The following section provides general information on securing a child restraint using a
three-point seat belt. Refer to page 47–48
for information on securing a child restraint
using ISOFIX/LATCH lower anchors and/or top
tether anchorages.

WARNING
A child seat should never be used in the
front passenger seat of any vehicle with a
front passenger airbag – not even if the
"Passenger airbag off" symbol near the
rear-view mirror is illuminated (on vehicles
equipped with Occupant Weight Sensor). If
the severity of an accident were to cause the
airbag to inflate, this could lead to serious
injury or death to a child seated in this position.
WARNING
Always refer to the child restraint manufacturer's instructions for detailed information
on securing the restraint.

WARNING
•
When not in use, keep the child restraint
system secured or remove it from the
passenger compartment to help prevent it from injuring passengers in the
event of a sudden stop or collision.
•
A small child's head represents a considerable part of its total weight and its
neck is still very weak. Volvo recommends that children up to age 4 travel,
properly restrained, facing rearward. In
addition, Volvo recommends that children should ride rearward facing, properly restrained, as long as possible.

and use both ISOFIX/LATCH lower anchors
and top tethers whenever possible.
To access the anchors
1. Put the child restraint in position.
2. Kneel on the child restraint to press down
the seat cushion and locate the anchors by
feel.

WARNING
Volvo's ISOFIX/LATCH anchors conform to
FMVSS/CMVSS standards. Always refer to
the child restraint system's manual for
weight and size ratings.
Fasten the attachment correctly to the ISOFIX/
LATCH lower anchors
NOTE
•
The rear seat's center position is not
equipped with ISOFIX/LATCH lower
anchors. When installing a child
restraint in this position, attach the
restraint's top tether strap (if it is so
equipped) to the top tether anchorage
point and secure the restraint with the
vehicle's center seat belt.
•
Always follow your child seat manufacturer's installation instructions, and use
both ISOFIX/LATCH lower anchors and
top tethers whenever possible.
WARNING
•
Be sure to fasten the attachment correctly to the anchor (see the illustration).
If the attachment is not correctly fastened, the child restraint may not be
properly secured in the event of a collision.
•
The ISOFIX/LATCH lower child restraint
anchors are only intended for use with
child seats positioned in the outboard
seating positions. These anchors are
not certified for use with any child
restraint that is positioned in the center
seating position. When securing a child
restraint in the center seating position,
use only the vehicle's center seat belt.

01 Safety
01
Top tether anchors
Child restraint anchorages
Refer also to the child seat manufacturer's
instructions for information on securing the
child seat.
WARNING
•
Never route a top tether strap over the
top of the head restraint. The strap
should be routed beneath the head
restraint.
•
Child restraint anchorages are designed
to withstand only those loads imposed
by correctly fitted child restraints. Under
no circumstances are they to be used
for adult seat belts or harnesses. The
anchorages are not able to withstand
excessive forces on them in the event of
collision if full harness seat belts or adult
seat belts are installed to them. An adult
who uses a belt anchored in a child
restraint anchorage runs a great risk of
suffering severe injuries should a collision occur.
•
Do not install rear speakers that require
the removal of the top tether anchors or
interfere with the proper use of the top
tether strap.
NOTE
On models equipped with the optional
cargo area cover, this cover should be
removed before a child seat is attached to
the child restraint anchors.
Your Volvo is equipped with child restraint top
tether anchorages in the rear seat. They are
located on the rear side of the backrests.
Securing a child seat
1. Place the child restraint on the rear seat.
2. Route the top tether strap under the head
restraint and attach it to the anchor.
3. Attach lower tether straps to the lower ISOFIX/LATCH anchors. If the child restraint is
not equipped with lower tether straps, or
the restraint is used in the center seating
position, follow instructions for securing a
child restraint using the Automatic Locking
Retractor seat belt (see page 38).
4. Firmly tension all straps.

other messages, such as Coolant level low,
Stop safely will also be displayed. If your
engine does overheat so that you must stop the
engine, always allow the engine to cool before
attempting to check oil and coolant levels.
See page 320 for more information.
Fault in brake system
If this symbol lights, the brake fluid level may
be too low. Stop the vehicle in a safe place and
check the level in the brake fluid reservoir, see
page 320. If the level in the reservoir is below
MIN, the vehicle should be transported to an
authorized Volvo workshop to have the brake
system checked.

HomeLink® Wireless Control System*
Introduction
•
•
•
The HomeLink1 Wireless Control System provides a convenient way to replace up to three
hand-held radio-frequency (RF) transmitters
used to activate devices such as gate operators, garage door openers, entry door locks,
security systems, even home lighting. Additional HomeLink information can be found on
the Internet at www.homelink.com.

Programming HomeLink
WARNING
If you use HomeLink to open a garage
door or gate, be sure no one is near the
gate or door while it is in motion.
When programming a garage door
opener, it is advised to park outside of
the garage.
Do not use HomeLink with any garage
door opener that lacks safety stop and
reverse features as required by U.S.
federal safety standards (this includes
any garage door opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage
door that cannot detect an object - signaling the door to stop and reverse does not meet current U.S. federal
safety standards. For more information,
contact HomeLink at:
www.homelink.com.
Retain the original transmitter of the RF device
you are programming for use in other vehicles
as well as for future HomeLink programming. It
is also suggested that upon the sale of the
vehicle, the programmed HomeLink buttons be
erased for security purposes. Refer to “Erasing
HomeLink Buttons”.
NOTE
Some vehicles may require the ignition
switch to be turned on or to the second
(“accessories”) position for programming
and/or operation of HomeLink. It is also recommended that a new battery be placed in
the hand-held transmitter of the device
being programmed to HomeLink for quicker
training and accurate transmission of the
radio-frequency signal.
03
1. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1–3 inches (5–14 cm) away from the
HomeLink button you wish to program
while keeping the indicator light in view.
2. Simultaneously press and hold both the
chosen HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons until the HomeLink indicator
light changes from a slow to a rapidly blinking light. Now you may release both the
HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons.

Some devices may require you to replace
this Programming Step 2 with procedures
noted in the “Gate Operator / Canadian Programming” section. If the HomeLink indicator light does not change to a rapidly blinking light after performing these steps, contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com.
3. Firmly press, hold for five seconds and
release the programmed HomeLink button up to two separate times to activate the
door. If the door does not activate, press
and hold the just-trained HomeLink button
and observe the indicator light.
• If the indicator light stays on constantly, programming is complete
and your device should activate when
the HomeLink button is pressed and
released.
• If the indicator light blinks rapidly for
two seconds and then turns to a constant light continue with “Programming” steps 4-6 to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped
device (most commonly a garage door
opener).
4. At the garage door opener receiver (motorhead unit) in the garage, locate the “learn”
or “smart” button. This can usually be
110
5. Firmly press and release the “learn” or
“smart” button. (The name and color of the
button may vary by manufacturer.) There
are 30 seconds to initiate step 6.
6. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold
for two seconds and release the programmed HomeLink button. Repeat the
“press/hold/release” sequence a second
time, and, depending on the brand of the
garage door opener (or other rolling code
equipped device), repeat this sequence a
third time to complete the programming
process.
HomeLink should now activate your rolling
code equipped device.
Gate Operator/Canadian Programming
Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter signals to “time-out” (or quit) after several seconds of transmission – which may not
be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the
signal during programming. Similar to this
Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are
designed to “time-out” in the same manner.
If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties programming a gate operator or garage
door opener by using the “Programming” pro-
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
cedures, replace “Programming HomeLink”
step 2 with the following:
• Continue to press and hold the HomeLink
button while you press and release every two seconds (“cycle”) your handheld transmitter until the HomeLink indicator light changes from a slow to a rapidly
blinking light. Now you may release both
the HomeLink and hand-held transmitter
buttons.
Proceed with “Programming” step 3 to complete.
Using HomeLink
To operate, simply press and release the programmed HomeLink button. Activation will
now occur for the trained device (i.e., garage
door opener, gate operator, security system,
entry door lock, home/office lighting, etc.). For
convenience, the hand-held transmitter of the
device may also be used at any time. In the
event that there are still programming difficulties or questions, contact HomeLink at:
www.homelink.com.

•
Always open garage doors fully before
starting the engine inside a garage to
ensure adequate ventilation. The
exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, which is invisible and odorless but
very poisonous.
NOTE
•
After a cold start, idle speed may be
noticeably higher than normal for a
short period. This is done to help bring
components in the emission control
system to their normal operating temperature as quickly as possible, which
enables them to control emissions and
help reduce the vehicle's impact on the
environment3.
CAUTION
•
When starting in cold weather, the automatic transmission may shift up at
slightly higher engine speeds than normal until the automatic transmission
fluid reaches normal operating temperature.
•
Do not race a cold engine immediately
after starting. Oil flow may not reach
some lubrication points fast enough to
prevent engine damage.
•
The engine should be idling when you
move the gear selector. Never accelerate until after you feel the transmission
engage. Accelerating immediately after
selecting a gear will cause harsh
engagement and premature transmission wear.
•
Selecting P or N when idling at a standstill for prolonged periods of time will
help prevent overheating of the automatic transmission fluid.

Brake system
Brake pad inspection
The brake system is a hydraulic system consisting of two separate brake circuits. If a problem should occur in one of these circuits, it is
still possible to stop the vehicle with the other
brake circuit.
On vehicles equipped with a jack*, the condition of the brake pads can be checked by raising the vehicle (see page 306 for information
about using the jack and removing a wheel)
and performing a visual inspection of the brake
pads.
If the brake pedal must be depressed farther
than normal and requires greater foot pressure,
the stopping distance will be longer.
A warning light in the instrument panel will light
up to warn the driver that a fault has occurred.
•
If the fluid level is below the MIN mark in the
reservoir or if a brake system message is
shown in the information display: DO NOT
DRIVE. Have the vehicle towed to a trained
and qualified Volvo service technician and
have the brake system inspected.
If the vehicle has been driven immediately prior to a brake pad inspection, the
wheel hub, brake components, etc., will
be very hot. Allow time for these components to cool before carrying out the
inspection.
•
Apply the parking brake and put the
gear selector in the Park (P) position.
•
Block the wheels standing on the
ground, use rigid wooden blocks or
large stones.
NOTE
WARNING
•
Use the jack intended for the vehicle
when changing a tire. For any other job,
use stands to support the vehicle.
•
The jack should be kept well-greased
and clean, and should not be damaged.
•
Be sure the jack is on a firm, level, nonslippery surface.
•
No objects should be placed between
the base of jack and the ground, or
between the jack and the attachment
bar on the vehicle.
•
The jack must correctly engage the jack
attachment.
•
Never allow any part of your body to be
extended under a vehicle supported by
a jack.
WARNING
If this light comes on while driving or braking,
stop immediately and check the brake fluid
level in the reservoir.
Press the brake pedal hard and maintain
pressure on the pedal – do not pump the
brakes.

Brake lights
The brake lights come on automatically when
the brakes are applied.
Adaptive brake lights
The adaptive brake lights activate in the event
of sudden braking or if the ABS system is activated. This function causes an additional taillight on each side of the vehicle to illuminate to
help alert vehicles traveling behind.
The adaptive brake lights activate if:

03 Your driving environment
Brakes
• The ABS system activates for more than
approximately a half second
• In the event of sudden braking while the
vehicle is moving at speeds above approximately 6 mph (10 km/h)
03
When the vehicle has come to a stop, the brake
lights and additional taillights remain on for as
long as the brake pedal is depressed or until
braking force on the vehicle is reduced.
Power brakes function only when the
engine is running
The power brakes utilize vacuum pressure
which is only created when the engine is running. Never let the vehicle roll to a stop with the
engine switched off.
If the power brakes are not working, considerably higher pressure will be required on the
brake pedal to compensate for the lack of
power assistance. This can happen for example when towing your vehicle or if the engine is
switched off when the vehicle is rolling. The
brake pedal feels harder than usual.
120
brakes are needed, depress the pedal occasionally when driving through rain, slush, etc.
This will remove the water from the brakes.
Check that brake application feels normal. This
should also be done after washing or starting
in very damp or cold weather.
Severe strain on the brake system
The brakes will be subject to severe strain
when driving in mountains or hilly areas, or
when towing a trailer. Vehicle speed is usually
slower, which means that the cooling of the
brakes is less efficient than when driving on
level roads. To reduce the strain on the brakes,
shift into a lower gear and let the engine help
with the braking. Do not forget that if you are
towing a trailer, the brakes will be subjected to
a greater than normal load.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
Water on brake discs and brake pads
affects braking
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps to
improve vehicle control (stopping and steering)
during severe braking conditions by limiting
brake lockup. When the system "senses"
impending lockup, braking pressure is automatically modulated in order to help prevent
lockup that could lead to a skid.
Driving in rain and slush or passing through an
automatic car wash can cause water to collect
on the brake discs and pads. This will cause a
delay in braking effect when the pedal is
depressed. To avoid such a delay when the
The system performs a brief self-diagnostic
test when the engine has been started and
driver releases the brake pedal. Another automatic test may be performed when the vehicle
first reaches a speed of approximately 6 mph
(10 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several
times and a sound may be audible from the
ABS control module, which is normal.
Cleaning the brake discs
Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs
may result in delayed brake function. This delay
is minimized by cleaning the brake linings.
Cleaning the brake pads is advisable in wet
weather, prior to long-term parking, and after
the vehicle has been washed. Do this by braking gently for a short period while the vehicle is
moving.
Emergency Brake Assistance
EBA is designed to provide full brake effect
immediately in the event of sudden, hard braking. The system is activated by the speed with
which the brake pedal is depressed.
When the EBA system is activated, the brake
pedal will go down and pressure in the brake
system immediately increases to the maximum
level. Maintain full pressure on the brake pedal
in order to utilize the system completely. EBA
is automatically deactivated when the brake
pedal is released.

in the brake system immediately increases to the maximum level. You must
maintain full pressure on the brake
pedal in order to utilize the system completely. There will be no braking effect if
the pedal is released. EBA is automatically deactivated when the brake pedal
is released.
When the vehicle has been parked for
some time, the brake pedal may sink
more than usual when the engine is
started. This is normal and the pedal will
return to its usual position when it is
released.

Hill Descent Control (HDC)*
Introduction
Function
Using HDC
Normally, when the accelerator pedal is
released while driving down hills, the vehicle's
speed slows as the engine runs at lower rpm
(the normal engine braking effect). However, if
the downhill gradient becomes steeper and if
the vehicle is carrying a load, speed increases
despite the engine braking effect. In this situation, the brakes must be applied to reduce the
vehicle's speed.
HDC is a type of automatic engine brake and
makes it possible to increase or decrease the
vehicle's speed on downhill gradients using
only the accelerator pedal, without applying
the brakes. The brake system functions automatically to maintain a low and steady speed.
HDC is particularly useful when driving down
steep hills with rough surfaces, and where the
road may have slippery patches.
WARNING
HDC does not function in all situations, and
is a supplementary braking aid. The driver
has full responsibility for driving in a safe
manner.
HDC allows the car to roll forward at a maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h), and 4 mph
(7 km/h) in reverse. However, the accelerator
pedal can be used to select any speed that is
possible in first or reverse gears. When the
accelerator pedal is released, speed is quickly
reduced again to 6 mph (10 km/h) or 4 mph
(7 km/h), depending on the gear selected,
regardless of the hill's gradient. It is not necessary to apply the brakes.

Climate system
Introduction
Air conditioning
The vehicle is equipped with Electronic Climate
Control (ECC). The climate control system
cools, heats or dehumidifies the air in the passenger compartment.
NOTE
The sunlight sensor monitors which side of
the car that is most exposed to sunlight.
This can mean that the temperature may
differ between the right and left-side air
vents, even if the temperatures set for both
sides of the passenger compartment are the
same.
NOTE
•
•
The air conditioning can be switched
off, but to ensure the best possible climate comfort in the passenger compartment and to prevent the windows
from misting, it should always be on.
• The temperature sensor for the passenger
In warm weather, a small amount of
water may accumulate under the car
when it has been parked. This water is
condensation from the A/C system and
is normal.

rior rearview mirror.
NOTE
Do not cover or block the sensors with
clothing or other objects.
mercially available window washing spray will
also help prevent fogging or misting.
Temporary shut-off of the air
conditioning
The air conditioning is momentarily disengaged during full-throttle acceleration or when
driving uphill with a trailer. This may result in a
temporary increase in cabin temperature.
Ice and snow
Always keep the air intake grille at the base of
the windshield free of snow.
04
Climate system maintenance
Special tools and equipment are required to
maintain and carry out repairs on the climate
system. Work of this type should only be done
by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
Refrigerant
Side windows and laminated panoramic
roof
To ensure that the air conditioning works optimally, the side windows, and the laminated
panoramic roof should be closed.
Volvo cares about the environment. The air
conditioning system in your car contains a
CFC-free refrigerant – R134a. This substance
will not deplete the ozone layer. The air conditioning system contains 1.8 lbs (820 g) of
R134a. The systems uses PAG oil.

your Warranty and Service Records Information booklet, or consult a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for these intervals.
The filter should be replaced more often when
driving under dirty and dusty conditions. The
filter cannot be cleaned and therefore should
always be replaced with a new one.
NOTE
04
There are different types of cabin air filters.
Ensure that the correct type is installed.
Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
A multifilter helps reduce gases and particles
in the incoming air, thereby reducing the levels
of odors and contaminants entering the vehicle. The air quality sensor detects increased
levels of contaminants in the outside air. When
the air quality sensor detects contaminated
outside air, the air intake closes and the air
inside the passenger compartment is recirculated, i.e. no outside air enters the vehicle. The
filter also cleans recirculated passenger compartment air.
NOTE
Contact your Volvo retailer for IAQS air filter
replacement intervals.

Materials used in the cabin
Air distribution
The materials used in the cabin have been
developed to help minimize the amount of dust
and make the cabin easier to keep clean. All
floor mats can be easily removed for cleaning.
Use car cleaning products recommended by
Volvo. See also the information beginning on
page 344.
Menu settings
The default settings for four of the climate system's functions can be changed in the menu

Stability system
Introduction
Spin control (SC)
The Dynamic Stability and Traction Control
system (DSTC) consists of a number of functions designed help reduce wheel spin, counteract skidding, and to generally help improve
directional stability.
The spin control function is designed to help
prevent the drive wheels from spinning while
the vehicle is accelerating.
CAUTION
A pulsating sound will be audible when the
system is actively operating and is normal.
Traction control (TC)
This function is designed to help reduce wheel
spin by transferring power from a drive wheel
that begins to lose traction to the wheel on the
opposite side of the vehicle (on the same axle).
Engine Drag Control (EDC)
EDC helps keep the engine running if the
wheels show a tendency to lock, e.g., when
shifting down in the Geartronic manual shifting
mode or while using the engine's braking function on a slippery surface. If the engine were to
stop, power steering would not function, making the vehicle more difficult to steer.
Trailer Stability Assist – TSA*
TC is most active at low speeds.
Trailer Stability Assist helps stabilize a vehicle
that is towing a trailer when the vehicle and
trailer have begun to sway. See page 279 for
more information.
This is one of DSTC's permanent functions and
cannot be switched off.
This system is automatically deactivated if the
driver selects Sport mode.
Active Yaw Control (AYC)
This function helps maintain directional stability, for example when cornering, by braking
one or more of the wheels if the vehicle shows
a tendency to skid or slide laterally.
This is one of DSTC's permanent functions and
cannot be switched off.
However, the driver can select Sport mode,
which offers more active driving characteristics. In this mode, the engine management system monitors movement of the accelerator
pedal and steering wheel for sportier driving by
allowing more lateral movement of the rear
wheels before DSTC is activated.
Under certain circumstances, such as when
driving with snow chains, or driving in deep
snow or loose sand, it may be advisable to
temporarily use Sport mode for maximum
tractive force.
04
If the driver releases pressure on the accelerator pedal, DSTC will also activate to help stabilize the vehicle.
To switch to Sport mode:
1. Press the My Car button in the center console control panel and select My XC60
DSTC in the menu.
2. Unselect the symbol and leave the menu
by pressing EXIT.
> This puts DSTC in Sport mode.
Operation

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)*
Introduction
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is an optional
system designed to assist the driver by maintaining a set speed or a set time interval to the
vehicle ahead. It is primarily intended for use
on long straight roads in steady traffic, such as
on highways and other main roads.
When the driver has set the desired speed and
the time interval to the vehicle ahead, ACC
functions as follows:
04
WARNING
•
Adaptive Cruise Control cannot cover
all driving situations and traffic, weather
and road conditions. The "Function"
section provides information about limitations that the driver must be aware of
before using this feature.
•
This system is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however,
intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is
responsible for maintaining a safe distance and speed and must intervene if
Adaptive Cruise Control does not maintain a suitable speed or suitable distance to the vehicle ahead.
• If there are no other vehicles in the lane
ahead of you, your vehicle will travel at the
set speed.
• If ACC's radar sensor detects a slower
moving vehicle in the lane ahead, the system will adapt your vehicle's speed to help
maintain the set time interval to the vehicle
ahead. When there are no longer slower
moving vehicles ahead, your vehicle will
accelerate to resume the set speed.
•
If ACC is switched off completely or in standby
mode and your vehicle comes too close to
another vehicle ahead, the driver will be
warned by the Distance Alert system (see
page 164).

qualified Volvo technician.
Function
Function overview1
Warning light, braking by driver required
Controls in steering wheel

Adaptive Cruise Control consists of:
• A cruise control system to maintain a set
speed
• A system to maintain a set distance to the
vehicle ahead, which is expressed as a
time interval. For example, you can choose
to remain approximately 2 seconds behind
the vehicle ahead. The actual distance
required to maintain a 2-second interval
will vary according the speed of the vehicles.
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)*
WARNING
WARNING
•
•
Adaptive Cruise Control does not react
to people or animals, or small vehicles
such as bicycles and motorcycles. It
also does not react to slow moving,
parked or approaching vehicles, or stationary objects.
The ACC system is designed to smoothly regulate speed. However, the driver must apply
the brakes in situations that require immediate
braking. This applies when there are great differences in speed between vehicles, or if the
vehicle ahead brakes suddenly.
Do not use Adaptive Cruise Control in
demanding driving conditions such as
city driving or other heavy traffic situations, in slippery conditions, when there
is a great deal of water or slush on the
road, during heavy rain or snow, in poor
visibility, on winding roads or on highway on- or off-ramps.
Due to limitations in the radar sensor, braking may occur unexpectedly or not at all,
see page 159.
•
The distance to the vehicle ahead (in the same
lane) is monitored by a radar sensor. Your vehicle's speed is regulated by accelerating and
braking. The brakes may emit a sound when
they are being modulated by the adaptive
cruise control system. This is normal.
2
WARNING
Adaptive Cruise Control is not a collision avoidance system. The driver is
always responsible for applying the
brakes if the system does not detect
another vehicle.
The brake pedal moves when the adaptive
cruise control system modulates the
brakes. Do not rest your foot under the
brake pedal.
WARNING
Adaptive Cruise Control can be put in active
mode at any permitted speed. However, if the
vehicle's speed falls below 18 mph (30 km/h)
or if engine speed (rpm) becomes too low, ACC
disengages (goes into standby mode) and will
no longer modulate the brakes2. The driver will
then have to maintain a safe distance to the
vehicle ahead.
When Adaptive Cruise Control is in standby
mode or is switched off completely, the
brakes will not be modulated automatically.
The driver must assume full control over the
vehicle.
Warning light—driver braking required
Adaptive Cruise Control can exert brake force
that is equivalent to approximately 40% of the
vehicle's total braking capacity. In situations
requiring more brake force than ACC can provide and if the driver does not apply the brakes,
an audible signal from the Collision Warning
system will sound and warning light will illuminate (see page 173) in the windshield to alert
the driver to react.
04
NOTE
Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light
contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the
driver is not looking straight ahead may
make the visual warning signal in the windshield difficult to see.
Does not apply to vehicles with the optional Queue Assist. See page 158 for more information.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)*
WARNING
Operation
Before ACC can be used to regulate speed
and/or the distance to a vehicle ahead, it must
first be put in standby mode.
Adaptive Cruise Control only warns of vehicles detected by the radar sensor, see
page 159. In some cases there may be no
warning or the warning may be delayed. The
driver should always apply the brakes when
necessary.
To do so:
Press
ACC is primarily intended for use on fairly level
roads. The system may have difficulty maintaining the correct distance to a vehicle ahead
on steep inclines, if the vehicle is carrying a
heavy load or is towing a trailer. In these situations, the driver should always be prepared to
apply the brakes if necessary.

NOTE
If the accelerator pedal is only depressed for
a short time, such as when passing another
vehicle, ACC is deactivated temporarily and
is reactivated when the pedal is released.
Automatic standby mode
Adaptive cruise control is linked to other systems such as the stability and traction control
system (DSTC). If this system is not functioning
properly, adaptive cruise control is automatically deactivated and will go into standby
mode.
In the event of automatic deactivation, an audible signal will sound and the message Cruise

An automatic switch to standby mode may be
caused if:
Please note that the lowest speed that can be
set is 18 mph (30 km/h), although ACC can
maintain a set speed/distance to a vehicle
ahead down to a standstill. Queue Assist consists of the following features:
Enhanced speed interval
Your vehicle can maintain the set time interval
to the vehicle ahead at any permissible speed,
including a complete stop.
In order to activate ACC at speeds below
18 mph (30 km/h):
• The vehicle ahead must be within a reasonable distance (not farther away than
approx. 100 ft/30 meters)
• The lowest speed that can be selected is
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
18 mph (30 km/h), although ACC will also
help maintain the set time interval to the
vehicle ahead at lower speeds, including a
complete stop.
During short stops (less than approximately
3 seconds) in slow-moving traffic, your vehicle
will begin moving again automatically as soon
as the vehicle ahead begins to move.
If it takes more than 3 seconds for the vehicle
ahead to begin moving, ACC will be automatically go into standby mode.
The driver will then have to reactivate ACC in
one of the following ways:
• By pressing
• By accelerating up to at least 3 mph

City Safety™
Introduction
City Safety™1 is a support system designed to
help the driver avoid low speed collisions when
driving in slow-moving, stop-and-go traffic.
City Safety™ is not active if your vehicle’s
speed is below approximately 2 mph (4 km/h).
This means that City Safety™ will not react if
your vehicle approaches another vehicle at
very low speed, for example, when parking.
The function is active at speeds up to approximately 18 mph (30 km/h) and assists the driver
by applying the brakes automatically, thereby
avoiding or helping to reduce the effects of a
collision.
City Safety™ is designed to intervene as late
as possible to help avoid unnecessary activation.
means that the system cannot help the driver
in all situations.
City Safety™ should not be used to alter the
way in which the driver operates the vehicle.
The driver should never rely solely on this system to safely stop the vehicle.
Normally, the occupants of the vehicle will not
be aware of City Safety™ except when the
system intervenes when a low-speed collision
is imminent.
If the vehicle is also equipped with the optional
Collision Warning with Full Auto-brake and
Pedestrian Detection system, the two systems
interact. For more information about the Collision Warning with Auto-brake system, see
page 172.
WARNING
•
City Safety™ is a supplemental aid to
the driver. It can never replace the
driver’s attention to traffic conditions or
his/her responsibility for operating the
vehicle in a safe manner.
•
City Safety™ does not function in all
driving situations or in all traffic, weather
or road conditions.
•
City Safety™ only reacts to vehicles
traveling in the same direction as your
vehicle and does not react to small vehicles, bicycles or motorcycles or to people or animals.
•
City Safety™ is not activated when your
vehicle is backing up.
•
City Safety™ functions at speeds up to
18 mph (30 km/h). This system can help
prevent a collision if the difference in
speed between your vehicle and the
vehicle ahead is less than 9 mph
(15 km/h). If the difference in speed is
greater, a collision cannot be avoided
but the speed at which the collision
occurs can be reduced. The driver must
apply the vehicle’s brakes for full braking effect.
•
Never wait for City Safety™ to intervene
in a potential collision situation. The
City Safety™ triggers brief, forceful braking if a
low-speed collision is imminent. However, the
system will not intervene in situations where
the driver actively steers the vehicle or applies
the brakes, even if a collision cannot be avoided. This is done in order to always give the
driver’s actions highest priority.
City Safety™ activates in situations where the
driver has not applied the brakes in time, which

Location of the laser sensor in the windshield2
City Safety™ monitors traffic ahead of you
using a laser sensor mounted in the upper section of the windshield. If a collision is imminent,
City Safety™ will automatically apply the
brakes, which may feel like hard braking.
If the difference in speed between your vehicle
and the vehicle ahead is more than approximately 9 mph (15 km/h), City Safety™ alone
cannot prevent a collision from taking place.

To switch City Safety™ on again:
• Follow the same procedure as for switching City Safety™ off but select ON.
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
City Safety™
Limitations
The sensor used by City Safety™ is designed
to detect cars and other larger motor vehicles
ahead of your vehicle in both daylight and darkness.
However, there are certain limitations and the
laser sensor’s function may be reduced by, for
example, heavy rain or snowfall, or by dense
fog or thick, blowing dust or snow. Condensation, dirt, ice or snow on the windshield may
also interfere with the sensor’s function.
Objects such as warning flags hanging from
long objects on the roof or accessories such as
auxiliary lights or protective arches on the front
of the vehicle that are higher than the hood may
also impede the sensor’s function.
Braking distance to the vehicle ahead increases on slippery road surfaces, which may
reduce City Safety’s capacity to avoid a collision. In situations like this, the DSTC system
(see page 149) will help provide the best possible braking capacity and stability.
City Safety™ emits infrared light and measures
the way in which the light is reflected. Therefore, vehicles or objects with low-reflective surfaces may not be detected. Normally, the
license plate and taillight reflectors give the
rear section of a vehicle ahead sufficient reflective surfaces to be detected.
NOTE
Cause
Action
•
Keep the windshield in front of the laser
sensor free of ice, snow, dirt, etc. See
page 168.
Clean the windshield or remove the
ice/snow.
•
Snow or ice on the hood deeper than
2 inches (5 cm) may obstruct the sensor. Keep the hood free of ice and snow.
The area of the
windshield in front of
the sensor is dirty or
covered by ice or
snow.

04
CAUTION
Troubleshooting
If Windscreen Sensors blocked appears in
the information display, this indicates that the
City Safety™ laser sensor is obstructed in
some way and cannot detect vehicles ahead of
you, which means that the system is not functioning.
However, this message will not be displayed in
all situations in which the sensor is obstructed.
For this reason, the driver must ensure that the
area of the windshield in front of the sensor is
always kept clean.
The following table shows some of the situations that can cause the message to be displayed and suggested actions.
If a crack, scratch or stone chip should
occur in the section of the windshield in
front the laser sensor and covers an area of
approximately 1/50 x 1/10 in. (0.5 x 3 mm)
or larger, contact a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician to repair or replace
the windshield (see the illustration showing
the location of the sensor on page 168).
Failing to do so may result in reduced City
Safety™ functionality.
To help prevent reduced functionality,
please also observe the following:

Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection*
Introduction
Collision Warning with Full Auto-brake and
Pedestrian Detection is designed to assist the
driver if there is a risk of a collision with a
pedestrian, a vehicle ahead that is at a standstill or one that is moving in the same direction
as your vehicle.
Collision Warning consists of the following
three functions:

The system should not be used in such a way
that the driver changes his/her way of operating the vehicle. If the driver relies entirely on the
system, the chances of an accident eventually
occurring increase considerably.
The Collision Warning and City Safety™ systems supplement each other. See page 167 for
detailed information about City Safety™.
WARNING
• Collision Warning warns the driver of a
potential collision situation.
• Brake Support helps the driver brake efficiently in a critical situation.
• Auto-brake brakes the vehicle automati-

function 100% correctly in all situations. For
that reason, never test the Auto-brake system by driving toward a person or object.
This could result in serious injury or death.
cally if a collision with a pedestrian or
another vehicle cannot be avoided and the
driver does not apply the brakes in time or
steer around the person/vehicle. Autobrake can help prevent a collision or
reduce the speed at which a collision
occurs.
Since Collision Warning with Full Auto-brake
and Pedestrian Detection is activated in circumstances where the driver should have
begun braking much sooner, the system will
not be able to assist the driver in all situations.
This system is designed to activate as late as
possible to help avoid unnecessary intervention.

Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection*
WARNING
•
Collision Warning will not provide a
warning or brake the vehicle for pedestrians in darkness or in tunnels, even if
there is street lighting in the area.
•
The auto-brake function can help prevent a collision or reduce the speed at
impact but the driver should always
apply the brakes for the best possible
braking effect, even if auto-brake is
actively applying the brakes.
•
•
Never wait for a collision warning. This
system is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however,
intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is
responsible for maintaining a safe distance and speed, even when the collision warning system is in use.
Maintenance of the Collision Warning
system's components must only be
performed by a trained and qualified
Volvo technician.
Function
Brake Support
If the risk of collision continues to increase after
the collision warning has been given, Brake
Support is activated. Brake Support prepares
the brake system to react quickly, and the
brakes are applied slightly. This may be experienced as a light tug.
If the brakes are applied quickly, full braking
effect will be provided. Brake Support also
increases brake force if the system determines
that the driver has not applied adequate pressure on the brake pedal.

Camera
Collision Warning
The radar sensor and the camera work
together to detect a pedestrian, stationary
vehicles and vehicles that are moving in the
same direction as your vehicle. If there is a risk
of collision with a vehicle or a pedestrian, the
driver is alerted by a flashing red warning light
and an audible warning signal. Collision warning is active at speeds above 3 mph (4 km/h).
If a collision is imminent and the driver has not
applied the brakes or begun to steer around the
vehicle or pedestrian, the auto-brake function
is activated without the driver pressing the
brake pedal. Full brake force is applied to help
reduce the vehicle’s speed when the collision
occurs or limited brake force is applied if this
is sufficient to avoid the collision.
NOTE
The auto-brake and brake support functions
are always on and cannot be turned off.

Operation
Setting a warning distance
Settings are made by pressing MY CAR on the
center console control panel and using the
menus displayed.
This setting determines the distance at which
the visual and audible warnings are triggered.
Select Long, Normal or Short by pressing MY
CAR on the center console control panel and
going to Settings Car settings Driver
support systems Collision Warning
Warning distance.
On and off
04
To switch Collision Warning on or off, press MY
CAR on the center console control panel and
go to Settings Car settings Driver
support systems Collision Warning. If
Collision Warning is on, the system will perform
a self-test each time the engine is started by
briefly illuminating the warning light. See page
134 for more information about the menu system.
The warning distance determines the level of
sensitivity used by the system. The warning
distance Long provides an earlier warning.
Begin by using Long and if the system gives
too many warnings, try changing to Normal.
WARNING
When the engine is switched on, the Collision
Warning setting that was being used when it
was switched off will be the default setting.
•
The setting Short should only be used
in situations where traffic is light and
moving at low speeds.
Activating/deactivating warning signals
•
Collision Warning alerts the driver to the
risk of a collision but this function cannot reduce the driver’s reaction time.
The collision warning system’s visual signals
are activated automatically when the engine is
started if the collision warning system is
switched on.
•
The audible warning signal can be activated/
deactivated by pressing MY CAR on the center
console control panel and going to Settings
Car settings Driver support systems
Warning sound if risk of collision.
174
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
For Collision Warning to be as effective
as possible, it is recommended that Distance Alert be set to 4 or 5, see
page 164.
NOTE
•
When Adaptive Cruise Control is used,
the warning light and signal will be used
by that function, even if the warnings
provided by Collision Warning have
been deactivated by the driver.
•
In situations where traffic is moving at
considerably different speeds, or if the
vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, warnings may be considered to be late, even
if the setting Long has been selected.
Checking settings
The current Collision Warning settings can be
checked by pressing MY CAR on the center
console control panel and going to Settings
Car settings Driver support systems
Collision Warning.
Limitations
Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the driver is
not looking straight ahead may make the visual
warning signal in the windshield difficult to see.
For this reason, always activate the audible
warning signal.
Slippery driving conditions increase braking
distance, which can reduce the system's
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection*
capacity to avoid a collision. In these conditions, the ABS and DSTC systems provide the
best possible braking effect while helping to
maintain stability.
WARNING
•
•
Warnings may not be provided if the
distance to the vehicle ahead is short,
or if movements of the steering wheel/
brake pedal are great, such as during
active driving.
NOTE
The visual warning signal may be temporarily disengaged in the event of high passenger compartment temperature due to strong
sunlight, etc. If this occurs, the audible
warning signal will be used, even if it has
been deactivated in the menu system.
NOTE
In certain situations, the system cannot
provide warnings or warnings may be
delayed if traffic conditions or other
external factors make it impossible for
the radar sensor or camera to detect a
pedestrian or a vehicle ahead.
•
•
The sensor system has a limited range
for pedestrians and provides warnings
and braking effect most effectively at
speeds up to 30 mph (50 km/h). For stationary or slow-moving vehicles, the
system functions best if your vehicle’s
speed is below approximately 45 mph
(70 km/h).
Warnings for stationary or slow-moving
vehicles may not be provided in dark
conditions or in poor visibility.
The Collision Warning system uses the same
radar sensors as Adaptive Cruise Control. For
more information on the radar sensor and its
limitations, see page 159.
If warnings are given too frequently, the
warning distance can be reduced (see
page 174). This causes the system to provide later warnings, which decreases the
total number of warnings provided.
WARNING
•
The system is not activated at speeds
under approx. 2 mph (4 km/h). Therefore, it will not brake your vehicle if you
approach a vehicle ahead at very low
speed, such as when parking.
•
The driver's actions always have highest priority and override the Collision
Warning system. This means that the
system will not intervene in situations
where the driver is actively steering,
braking or pressing the accelerator
pedal, even if a collision is imminent.
•
When Auto-brake has prevented a collision with a stationary object, your vehicle will remain at a standstill for approx.
1.5 seconds. If your vehicle has been
braked for a moving vehicle ahead, your
vehicle's speed will be reduced to the
same speed as that vehicle's.

The camera’s limitations
The camera is used by Collision Warning with
Auto-brake, Driver Alert Control (see
page 180), and Lane Departure Warning (see
page 183).
WARNING
•
The camera has the same limitations as
the human eye. In other words, its
“vision is impaired” by adverse weather
conditions such as heavy snowfall,
dense fog, etc. These conditions may
reduce the function of systems that
depend on the camera or cause these
systems to temporarily stop functioning.
•
Never place any objects, decals, etc.,
on the windshield in front of the camera.
This could reduce or block the camera’s
function, and could cause one or more
of the systems that utilize the camera to
stop functioning.
NOTE
•
04
•
To help protect the camera in very hot
conditions, it may be temporarily
switched off for approximately 15
minutes after the engine has been
started.
Keep the section of the windshield in
front of the camera clean and free of ice,
snow, or condensation.
•
Strong sunlight, reflections from the
road surface, ice or snow covering the
road, a dirty road surface, or unclear
lane marker lines may drastically reduce
the camera’s capacity to detect the side
of a lane, a pedestrian or another vehicle.
Pedestrians
The system cannot identify all pedestrians
The Collision Warning system can only identify
and detect a pedestrian who is standing
upright. This person can be standing still, walking or running.
This means that the system has to be able to
identify a person's head, arms, shoulders, legs,
the upper and lower parts of the body and a
person's pattern of movement when walking or
running.
If parts of the body are not visible to the camera, the system cannot detect the pedestrian.
The following conditions apply:
• In order to detect a pedestrian, the system
must have a full view of the person's entire
176
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection*
body and the person must be at least
32 in. (80 cm) tall.
• The system cannot detect a pedestrian
carrying a large object.
• The camera's capacity to see a pedestrian
at dawn or dusk is limited, much as it is for
the human eye.
• The camera's function is deactivated and
will not detect a pedestrian in darkness or
in tunnels, even if there is street lighting in
the area.
WARNING
•
Collision Warning with Full Auto-brake
and Pedestrian Detection is designed to
be a supplementary driving aid. It is not,
however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver
is always responsible for operating the
vehicle in a safe manner.
•
The system cannot detect all pedestrians in all situations, such as in darkness/at night and cannot detect partially hidden pedestrians, people who are
less than approx. 32 in. (80 cm) tall, or
people wearing clothing that obscures
the contours of their bodies.
Fault tracing and actions
If the message Windscreen Sensors
blocked is displayed, this means that the camera is obscured and cannot detect pedestrians,
vehicles or road marker lines in front of the
vehicle.
This, in turn, means that Collision Warning with

Driver Alert System*
Introduction
The Driver Alert System is designed to help a
driver who may be becoming fatigued or who
is inadvertently leaving the lane.
Driver Alert Control (DAC)–
introduction
The Driver Alert System consists of two different functions that can be switched on together
or separately.
WARNING
• Driver Alert Control (DAC)
• Lane Departure Warning (LDW), see
04
page 183
When one or both of the functions has been
switched on, it is in standby mode and is activated when the vehicle exceeds a speed of
40 mph (65 km/h).
The function deactivates if the vehicle's speed
goes under 37 mph (60 km/h).
Both functions use a camera that is dependent
on the road/lane being clearly marked by painted lines on each side.
This function is intended to alert the driver if
his/her driving becomes erratic, such as if the
driver is distracted or fatigued.
180
•
DAC is not intended to extend the duration of driving. Always plan breaks at
regular intervals to help remain alert.
•
In certain cases, fatigue may not affect
the driver’s behavior. In situations of
this type, no warning will be provided.
Therefore, it is important to take breaks
at regular intervals, regardless of
whether or not DAC has given a warning.
Limitations
NOTE
The camera has certain limitations, see
page 159.
WARNING
The Driver Alert System does not function in
all situations and is designed to be a supplementary aid. It is not, however, intended
to replace the driver’s attention and judgement.
DAC is designed to help detect a slowly changing driving pattern. It is primarily intended to be
used on main roads and is not meant for use in
city traffic.
A camera monitors the painted lines marking
the lane in which the vehicle is traveling and
compares the direction of the road with the
driver’s movements of the steering wheel. The
driver is alerted if the vehicle does not follow
the lane smoothly.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
In certain situations, DAC may provide warnings even if the driver’s driving pattern has not
become erratic.

186
Activating/deactivating
The system is activated automatically when the
vehicle is started.
The park assist system is designed to assist
you when driving into parking spaces, garages,
etc. It utilizes ultrasound sensors in the front
bumper and rear bumper(s) to measure the distance to a vehicle or an object that may be
close to the front or rear of your vehicle. An
audible signal and symbols in the audio system’s display indicate the distance to the
object.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Press the Park assist button on the center
console to temporarily deactivate the system(s).

Rear park assist
The Park Assist system uses an intermittent
tone that pulses faster as you come close to an
object, and becomes constant when you are

CAR menu system, see page 134.
Visual indicator
The audio system’s display gives an overview
of the vehicle’s position in relation to a
detected object.
The marked sectors in the display indicate that
one or more of the sensors has detected an
object. The closer the car symbol comes to a
sector, the closer the vehicle is to the object.
If the infotainment system is switched off, the
park assist system will not be able to provide a
visual indicator. An audible signal will still be
provided.
If the volume of another source from the audio
system is high, this will be automatically lowered.
The distance monitored behind the vehicle is
approximately 5 ft (1.5 m). The audible signal
comes from the rear speakers.
The system must be deactivated when towing
a trailer, carrying bicycles in a rear-mounted

Rear Park Assist Camera (PAC)*
Introduction
Function
PAC also shows guiding lines in the on-screen
image to indicate the direction that the vehicle
will take as it moves rearward, which helps
simplify parallel parking, backing into a tight
space or when attaching a trailer to the vehicle.
04
If the image on the screen seems too dark,
brightness can be increased with the thumb
wheel on the lighting panel.
WARNING
•
•
•
PAC is designed to be a supplementary
aid when parking the vehicle. It is not,
however, intended to replace the
driver’s attention and judgment.
The camera has blind spots where it
cannot detect objects or people behind
the vehicle.
Pay particular attention to people or animals that are close to the vehicle.
NOTE
The driver sees what is behind the vehicle and
if a person or animal should suddenly appear
from the side.
PAC is mounted on the tailgate, near the opening handle.
The camera has built-in electronics that help
reduce the “fish-eye” effect so that the image
shown on the screen is as natural as possible.
This may cause some objects on the screen to
“lean,” which is normal.
WARNING
Objects seen on the screen may be closer
than they appear to be.
190
Ambient lighting conditions
The camera automatically monitors the ambient lighting conditions behind the vehicle and
constantly adjusts sensitivity to light. This may
cause the brightness and quality of the image
on the screen to vary slightly. Sensitivity to light
is increased in dark conditions or in bad
weather, which may affect image quality.
The Park Assist Camera uses the display in the
center console to show the area behind the car
while you are backing up.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
In order to function properly, the camera
lens should always be kept clean. This is
particularly important in bad weather. Keep
the lens free of dirt, ice or snow.

Rear Park Assist Camera (PAC)*
Using PAC
Activation
With the camera zoomed in on the trailer hitch,
a guiding line showing the hitch's path toward
the trailer will be projected. This feature can be
activated in the MY CAR menu, see
page 134. The guiding lines for the wheels (see
the following section "Guiding lines") and for
the trailer hitch cannot be displayed at the
same time.
Guiding lines
If the camera shows an enlarged (zoomed)
image, turn TUNE counterclockwise, or press
EXIT, CAM or OK to return to a normal view.
04
Deactivation
PAC is activated when the gear selector is
moved to R if the system is selected in the MY
CAR menu system or by pressing the CAM
button in the center console. See page 133 for
a description of the menu system.
If the Volvo Navigation System (VNS) is in use,
PAC will automatically override the navigation
system to show the camera's image on the
screen instead of navigation information, for as
long as reverse gear is selected.
Zoom
The camera can be useful when attaching a
trailer. Press CAM to zoom in on the trailer
hitch (and press this button again to return to
the normal camera view).
Move the gear selector from R to another position. There is a slight delay in the PAC system,
which means that the view from behind the
vehicle will remain on the screen for approximately 15 seconds after the gear selector has
been moved from the R position or until the
vehicle reaches a forward speed of 6 mph
(10 km/h). The screen will then revert to the
mode that it was in before R was selected and
will, for example, display navigation system
information.
The lines on the screen are projected as if they
were a path on the ground behind the vehicle
and are affected by the way in which the steering wheel is turned. This enables the driver to
see path the vehicle will take, even if he/she
turns the steering wheel while backing up.

Blind Spot Information System*
Introduction
WARNING
•
BLIS is an information system, NOT a
warning or safety system.
•
BLIS does not eliminate the need for
you to visually confirm the conditions
around you, and the need for you to turn
your head and shoulders to make sure
that you can safely change lanes.
•
G031404
04
As the driver, you have full responsibility
for changing lanes in a safe manner.
BLIS camera
Indicator light
BLIS symbol
The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is an
information system that indicates the presence
of another vehicle moving in the same direction
as your vehicle in the side-view mirror's "blind
area."
CAUTION
The system is based on digital camera technology. The cameras are located beneath the
side-view mirrors.
When one (or both) of the cameras have
detected a vehicle in the blind area (up to
approximately 10 ft. (3 meters) from the side of
your vehicle, and up to approximately 31 ft.
(9.5 meters) behind the side-view mirror), see
the illustration, the indicator light in the door
panel illuminates. The light will glow continuously to alert the driver of the vehicle in the
blind area.
NOTE
The door panel indicator light illuminates on
the side of the vehicle where the system has
detected another vehicle. If your vehicle is
passed on both sides at the same time, both
lights will illuminate.
BLIS has an integrated function that alerts the
driver if a fault should occur with the system.
For example, if one or both of the system's
cameras are obscured, a message (see the
table on page 196) will appear in the information display in the instrument panel. If this
occurs, clean the camera lenses. If necessary,
the system can be temporarily switched off (for
instructions, see page 196).
The BLIS system should only be repaired by
a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
Areas monitored by BLIS Distance A = approx.
31 ft. (9.5 meters), Distance B = approx. 10 ft.
(3 meters)
194
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Blind Spot Information System*
When does BLIS function
Darkness
The system functions when your vehicle is
moving at speeds above 6 mph (10 km/h).
BLIS reacts to the headlights of surrounding
vehicles. In order to be detected by BLIS, a
vehicle in the blind area must have its headlights on. This means, for example, that the
system will not detect a trailer without headlights that is being towed behind a car or truck.
When you pass another vehicle:
The system reacts when you pass another
vehicle at a speed of up to 6 mph (10 km/h)
faster than that vehicle.
WARNING
When you are passed by another vehicle:
The system reacts if your vehicle is passed by
another vehicle at a speed of up to 43 mph
(70 km/h) faster than your vehicle.
WARNING
•
•
BLIS does not function in sharp curves.
•
If you are towing a wide trailer, this may
prevent the BLIS cameras from detecting other vehicles in adjacent lanes.
BLIS does not function when your vehicle is backing up.
NOTE
•
BLIS does not react to cyclists or
mopeds.
•
BLIS does not react to vehicles that are
standing still.
•
The BLIS cameras have the same limitation as the human eye. In other words,
their "vision is impaired" by adverse
weather conditions such as heavy
snowfall, intense light directly into the
camera, dense fog, etc.
If the BLIS indicator lights illuminate occasionally even when there are no other vehicles in the blind area, this does not indicate
a fault in the system.
In the event of a fault, Blind spot syst.
Service required will be displayed.
The following are several examples of situations in which the BLIS indicator light(s) may
illuminate even when there are no other vehicles in the area monitored by the system.

Limitations
How BLIS functions in daylight and
darkness
In certain situations, the BLIS indicator light(s)
may illuminate even when there are no other
vehicles in the area monitored by the system.

developer of a broadcasting technology called
IBOC or In Band On Channel, which refers to
the method of transmitting a digital radio
broadcast signal centered on the same frequency as the AM or FM station's present frequency.
The IBOC system is referred to as a "hybrid"
since it is both analogue and digital. During
hybrid operation, receivers still continue to
receive the analogue (non-digital) signal. HD
radio receivers incorporate both modes of
reception, where the receiver will automatically
switch to the analogue signal if the digital signal
cannot be decoded or is lost by the receiver.
When you have tuned to an HD Radio station,
the
symbol will appear in the audio system display. The symbol is "grayed-out" when
HD Radio is in standby mode and white when
the radio is actively receiving an HD broadcast.
More information about HD radio and IBOC
can be found on Ibiquity's website,
www.hdradio.com and www.ibiquity.com.
Benefits of digital broadcasting
• Better sound (FM sounds near CD quality
and AM as analogue FM).
HD radio is a brand name registered by the
Ibiquity digital corporation1. They are the

• Some FM frequencies offer a greater number of listening choices through “multicasting” (consisting of a frequency's main
channel and any sub-channels that may
also be available on that particular frequency. See also the section "Sub-channels" below).
• When receiving a digital signal there is no
multipath disturbance or hisses/pops/
crackling due to outside influences.
How HD broadcasting works
HD Radio works similarly to conventional radio
and broadcasts of this type are available in
many areas of the United States. However,
there are a few key differences:
• Instead of transmitting one analogue signal, stations send out a bundled signal –
both analogue and digital.
• An HD radio receiver can receive both digital and analogue broadcasts. Depending
on the terrain and location of the vehicle
(which will influence the signal strength),
the receiver will determine which signal to
receive.
Limitations
• Main channel vs. sub-channels (FM
only): The main channel is the only channel
that can receive in hybrid mode (both digital and analogue). If a frequency has subchannels, they are broadcast in digital
mode only. The main FM channel will be

displayed as, for example, 93.9 WNYC
(Volvo uses the symbol ">" to indicate
there are sub-channels available) The subFM channels will be displayed as 93.9 – 2
WNYC, 93.9 - 3 WNYC, etc.
• Reception coverage area: Due to current
IBOC transmitter power limitations, the
reception coverage area in digital mode is
somewhat more limited than the station's
analogue coverage area. Please be aware
that as with any radio broadcast technology, terrain, time of day, foliage level and
building location can have positive or negative effects on radio reception.
• Analogue to digital/digital to analogue
blending: Analogue to digital blending will
occur as the signal strength reaches a preset threshold in the receiver. This will be
noticeable in fringe areas (areas with weak
reception) and is normal.
NOTE
There may be a noticeable difference in
sound quality when a change from analogue
to digital or digital to analogue occurs, such
as:
•
•
Volume increase or decrease
•
Time alignment (Digital program material in extreme cases can be as much as
8 seconds behind the analogue). This
will noticeable as a "stuttering" effect.

Switching HD on or off
3. Turn TUNE and move the marker to HD
Radio.
4. Press OK/MENU to turn HD off (the X will
disappear from the box on the display
screen).
This will disable the radio's capability to receive
digital broadcasts but it will continue to function as a conventional (analogue) AM/FM
receiver. Please note that when HD is switched
off, it will not be possible to tune to sub-channels (see the following section for a more
detailed explanation of sub-channels).
Repeat steps 2-4 above to reactivate HD (an X
will appear in the box on the display screen).
Please note that this will only switch HD on or
off for the selected waveband (AM, FM1, etc.).
05
Sub-channels
The factory setting for HD radio is off. However, when driving through areas with weak HD
signals (fringe areas), you may experience that
the radio repeatedly switches between analogue/digital and digital/analogue reception. If
this happens, it may be desirable to switch HD
off. To do so:
1. Be sure the audio system is switched on
and in one of the AM or FM modes.
2. Press OK/MENU in the center console
control panel.
Example of an HD Radio station with sub-channels
``
217
05 Infotainment
Radio
In many cases, a main HD Radio station (FM
wavebands only) will also have sub-channels
offering additional types of programming or
music.
•
In such cases, the “-” symbol will be displayed
to the left of the frequency number and a number will be displayed to the right of the frequency number indicating that the currently
tuned frequency has at least one sub-channel.
The "2" in the illustration indicates that you are
currently listening to the first sub-channel on
frequency 93.9.
Selecting sub-channels
05
To listen to a station's sub-channel(s), press
and hold the right arrow key on the center console or on the steering wheel keypad for
approximately 1 second. To go back to the
main channel, press and hold the left arrow key
on the center console or on the steering wheel
keypad for approximately 1 second. To go to
subchannel 2 (if available), press and hold the
right arrow key on the center console or on the
steering wheel keypad for approximately
1 second.
If you are currently tuned to a frequency's main
channel, pressing and holding the left arrow
key for approximately 1 second will tune to the
next lower radio frequency.

NOTE
Sirius satellite radio*
When the radio has gone into HD mode,
it may take several seconds before the
">" symbol (if the current frequency has
any sub-channels) is displayed to the
left of the frequency. Pressing and holding the arrow keys for approximately
1 second before the main-/sub-channel
icon is displayed will cause the radio to
tune to the next available radio station,
not to the current station's sub-channels.
Listening to satellite radio
When you are no longer in broadcasting
range of the currently tuned sub-channel, No reception will be displayed.
The radio will then be muted and it will
be necessary to tune to or search for a
new radio station.
The Sirius satellite system consists of a number
of high elevation satellites in geosynchronous
orbit.
NOTE
•
The digital signals from the Sirius satellites are line-of-sight, which means that
physical obstructions such as bridges,
tunnels, etc, may temporarily interfere
with signal reception.
•
Avoid any obstructions, such as metallic objects transported on roof racks or
in a ski box, or other antennas that may
impede signals from the SIRIUS satellites.
Sub-channels can also be stored as presets,
see page 215 for information on storing stations.
Selecting Sirius radio mode
If you press a sub-channel's preset button, it
may take up to 6 seconds before the channel
becomes audible. If you press this button while
you are out of digital range of the transmitter,

The information in this section applies
to using voice commands to operate a
BluetoothŸ-connected cell phone.
See also the section "BluetoothŸ
hands-free connection" beginning on
page 233 for detailed information about
using a cell phone with the vehicle's
infotainment system.
The navigation system has a separate
user's guide containing information
about voice commands for operating
that system.
WARNING
As the driver, you have full responsibility for
operating the vehicle safely and adhering to
all applicable traffic regulations.
The voice control feature provides access to a
number of functions in the BluetoothŸ handsfree and navigation systems while allowing you
to keep your hands on the steering wheel. Input
is in dialogue form using spoken commands
from the user and verbal prompts from the system. Voice control uses the same microphone
as the BluetoothŸ hands-free system (see the
illustration on page 233) and system prompts
are provided through the infotainment system's front speakers.
Voice commands offer convenience and help
avoid distractions so that you can concentrate
on driving and focus your attention on road and
traffic conditions.

or media player. However, only one disc can be
played in the media player at a time. You can
listen to music from e.g., an iPodŸ or from
streaming audio files using the BluetoothŸ
function.
The RSE system can be controlled from the
front screen (parental control).
Different media can be played or viewed from
different sources on the various screens (front
center console and/or the respective screens
in the rear seat). It is also possible to play or
view media from the same source on one or
more of the screens. However, it is not possible
to play a film from USB while a CD or DVD is
being played.

Driving recommendations
General information
Economical driving conserves natural
resources
Better driving economy may be obtained by
thinking ahead, avoiding rapid starts and stops
and adjusting the speed of your vehicle to
immediate traffic conditions.
Observe the following rules:
• Do not exceed posted speed limits.
• Avoid carrying unnecessary items (extra
load) in the vehicle.
• Maintain correct tire pressure. Check tire
pressure regularly (when tires are cold).
• Remove snow tires when threat of snow or
ice has ended.
• Note that roof racks, ski racks, etc,
increase air resistance and also fuel consumption.
• Bring the engine to normal operating temperature as soon as possible by driving
with a light foot on the accelerator pedal for
the first few minutes of operation. A cold
engine uses more fuel and is subject to
increased wear.
• Whenever possible, avoid using the vehicle
for driving short distances. This does not
allow the engine to reach normal operating
temperature.
06
• Drive carefully and avoid rapid acceleration
and hard braking.
• Use the transmission's Drive (D) position
as often as possible and avoid using kickdown.
• Using the transmission's Sport mode1 may
increase fuel consumption somewhat. Use
the transmission's Drive (D) position as
often as possible. See page 117 for additional information about Sport mode.
1
262
Models with the T6 turbo engine only.
• At highway driving speeds, fuel consumption will be lower with the air conditioning
on and the windows closed than with the
air conditioning off and the windows open.
• Using the onboard trip computer's fuel
consumption modes can help you learn
how to drive more economically.
Other factors that decrease gas mileage
are:
•
•
•
•
Dirty air cleaner
Dirty engine oil and clogged oil filter
Dragging brakes
Incorrect front end alignment
Some of the above mentioned items and others
are checked at the standard maintenance
intervals.
WARNING
Driving with the tailgate open: Driving with
the tailgate open could lead to poisonous
exhaust gases entering the passenger compartment. If the tailgate must be kept open
for any reason, proceed as follows:
•
•
Close the windows
Set the ventilation system control to air
flow to floor, windshield and side windows and the blower control to its highest setting.
Weight distribution affects handling
At the specified curb weight your vehicle has a
tendency to understeer, which means that the
steering wheel has to be turned more than
might seem appropriate for the curvature of a
bend. This ensures good stability and reduces
the risk of rear wheel skid. Remember that
these properties can alter with the vehicle load.
The heavier the load in the cargo area, the less
the tendency to understeer.
Handling, roadholding
Vehicle load, tire design and inflation pressure
all affect vehicle handling. Therefore, check
that the tires are inflated to the recommended
pressure according to the vehicle load. See the
"Tire pressure" section. Loads should be dis-
06 During your trip
Driving recommendations
tributed so that capacity weight or maximum
permissible axle loads are not exceeded.
CAUTION
•
Engine damage will occur if water is
drawn into the air cleaner.
•
If the vehicle is driven through water
deeper than 10 in (25 cm), water may
enter the differential and the transmission. This reduces the oil's lubricating
capacity and may shorten the service
life of these components.
Driving through water
• The vehicle can be driven through water up
to a depth of approximately 10 in. (25 cm),
at a maximum speed of 6 mph (10 km/h).
• Take particular care when driving through
flowing water.
• Clean the electrical connections for trailer
wiring after driving in mud or water.
•
Do not allow the vehicle to stand in
water up to the door sills longer than
absolutely necessary. This could result
in electrical malfunctions.
•
If the engine has been stopped while the
vehicle is in water, do not attempt to
restart it. Have the vehicle towed out of
the water.
• When driving through water, maintain low
speed and do not stop in the water.
WARNING
After driving through water, press lightly on
the brake pedal to ensure that the brakes
are functioning normally. Water or mud can
make the brake linings slippery, resulting in
delayed braking effect.
Engine and cooling system
Under special conditions, for example when
driving in hilly terrain, extreme heat or with
heavy loads, there is a risk that the engine and
cooling system will overheat. Proceed as follows to avoid overheating the engine.
• Maintain a low speed when driving with a
trailer up long, steep hills.
• Do not turn the engine off immediately
when stopping after a hard drive.
WARNING
The cooling fan may start or continue to
operate (for up to 6 minutes) after the engine
has been switched off.
• Remove any auxiliary lights from in front of
the grille when driving in hot weather conditions.
• Do not exceed engine speeds of 4500 rpm
if driving with a trailer in hilly terrain. The oil
temperature could become too high.
Conserving electrical current
Keep the following in mind to help minimize
battery drain:
• When the engine is not running, avoid
using ignition mode II. Many electrical systems (the audio system, the optional navigation system, power windows, etc) will
function in ignition modes 0 and I. These
modes reduce drain on the battery.
06
• Please keep in mind that using systems,
accessories, etc., that consume a great
deal of current when the engine is not running could result in the battery being completely drained. Driving or having the
engine running for approximately
15 minutes will help keep the battery
charged.
• The optional 12 volt socket in the cargo
area provides electrical current even with

the ignition switched off, which drains the
battery.
Before a long distance trip
It is always worthwhile to have your vehicle
checked by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician before driving long distances.
Your retailer will also be able to supply you with
bulbs, fuses, spark plugs and wiper blades for
your use in the event that problems occur.
• Consider your destination. If you will be
driving through an area where snow or ice
are likely to occur, consider snow tires.
Cold weather precautions
As a minimum, the following items should be
checked before any long trip:
• Check that engine runs smoothly and that
• Make sure that the engine coolant contains
•
•
•
•
•
Check for fuel, oil, and fluid leakage.
Have the transmission oil level checked.
Check condition of drive belts.
Check state of the battery's charge.
Examine tires carefully (the spare tire as
well), and replace those that are worn.
Check tire pressures.
• The brakes, front wheel alignment, and
steering gear should be checked by a
trained and qualified Volvo service technician only.
• Check all lights, including high beams.
• Reflective warning triangles are legally
required in some states/provinces.
264
Volvo service technician if you intend to
drive in countries where it may be difficult
to obtain the correct fuel.
If you wish to check your vehicle before the
approach of cold weather, the following advice
is worth noting:
fuel consumption is normal.
06
• Have a word with a trained and qualified
50 percent antifreeze. Any other mixture
will reduce freeze protection. This gives
protection against freezing down to
–31 °F (–35 °C). The use of "recycled" antifreeze is not approved by Volvo. Different
types of antifreeze must not be mixed.
• Volvo recommends using only genuine
Volvo antifreeze in your vehicle's radiator.
• Try to keep the fuel tank well filled – this
helps prevent the formation of condensation in the tank. In addition, in extremely
cold weather conditions it is worthwhile to
add fuel line de-icer before refueling.
• The viscosity of the engine oil is important.
Oil with low viscosity (thinner oil) improves
cold-weather starting as well as decreasing fuel consumption while the engine is
warming up. For winter use, 5W-30 oil, particularly the synthetic type, is recom-
mended. Be sure to use good quality oil but
do not use cold-weather oil for hard driving
or in warm weather, see page 356 for more
information on engine oil.
NOTE
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is
changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at owner request and at additional charge.
• The load placed on the battery is greater
during the winter since the windshield wipers, lighting, etc. are used more often.
Moreover, the capacity of the battery
decreases as the temperature drops. In
very cold weather, a poorly charged battery can freeze and be damaged. It is therefore advisable to check the state of charge
more frequently and spray an anti-rust oil
on the battery posts.
• Volvo recommends the use of snow tires
on all four wheels for winter driving, see
page 298.
• To prevent the washer fluid reservoir from
freezing, add washer solvents containing
antifreeze. This is important since dirt is
often splashed on the windshield during
winter driving, requiring the frequent use of
the washers and wipers. Volvo Washer
Solvent should be diluted as follows: Down
to 14 °F (–10 °C): 1 part washer solvent and
06 During your trip
Driving recommendations
4 parts water Down to 5 °F (–15 °C): 1 part
washer solvent and 3 parts water Down to
0 °F (–18 °C): 1 part washer solvent and
2 parts water Down to –18 °F (–28 °C):
1 part washer solvent and 1 part water.
• Use Volvo Teflon Lock Spray in the locks.
• Avoid using de-icing sprays as they can
cause damage to the locks.

Refueling
Fuel requirements
Deposit control gasoline (detergent
additives)
Volvo recommends the use of detergent gasoline to control engine deposits. Detergent
gasoline is effective in keeping injectors and
intake valves clean. Consistent use of deposit
control gasolines will help ensure good drivability and fuel economy. If you are not sure
whether the gasoline contains deposit control
additives, check with the service station operator.
NOTE
Volvo does not recommend the use of external fuel injector cleaning systems.
06
266
Unleaded fuel
Each Volvo has a three-way catalytic converter
and must use only unleaded gasoline. U.S. and
Canadian regulations require that pumps delivering unleaded gasoline be labeled "UNLEADED". Only these pumps have nozzles which
fit your vehicle's filler inlet. It is unlawful to dispense leaded fuel into a vehicle labelled
"unleaded gasoline only". Leaded gasoline
damages the three-way catalytic converter and
the heated oxygen sensor system. Repeated
use of leaded gasoline will lessen the effective-
ness of the emission control system and could
result in loss of emission warranty coverage.
State and local vehicle inspection programs
will make detection of misfueling easier, possibly resulting in emission test failure for misfueled vehicles.
sonal air quality standards, some areas require
the use of "oxygenated" fuel.
Volvo allows the use of the following "oxygenated" fuels; however, the octane ratings listed
on page 267 must still be met.
Alcohol – Ethanol
NOTE
Some U.S. and Canadian gasolines contain
an octane enhancing additive called methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl
(MMT). If such fuels are used, your Emission
Control System performance may be affected, and the Check Engine Light (malfunction indicator light) located on your instrument panel may light. If this occurs, please
return your vehicle to a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for service.
Gasoline containing alcohol and ethers,
"Oxygenated fuels"
Some fuel suppliers sell gasoline containing
"oxygenates" which are usually alcohols or
ethers. In some areas, state or local laws
require that the service pump be marked indicating use of alcohols or ethers. However,
there are areas in which the pumps are
unmarked. If you are not sure whether there is
alcohol or ethers in the gasoline you buy, check
with the service station operator. To meet sea-
Fuels containing up to 10% ethanol by volume
may be used. Ethanol may also be referred to
as Ethyl alcohol, or "Gasohol".
Ethers – MTBE: Fuels containing up to
15% MTBE may be used.
Methanol
Do not use gasolines containing methanol
(methyl alcohol, wood alcohol). This practice
can result in vehicle performance deterioration
and can damage critical parts in the fuel system. Such damage may not be covered under
the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

NOTE
When switching to higher octane fuel or
changing gasoline brands, it may be necessary to fill the tank more than once before a
difference in engine operation is noticeable.

Fuel Formulations
Typical pump octane label
Volvo recommends premium fuel for best performance, but using 87 octane1 or above will
not affect engine reliability.
Volvo engines are designed to achieve rated
horsepower, torque, and fuel economy performance using premium 91 octane fuel.
Demanding driving
In demanding driving conditions, such as operating the vehicle in hot weather, towing a trailer,
or driving for extended periods at higher altitudes than normal, it may be advisable to
switch to higher octane fuel (91 or higher) or to

Do not use gasoline that contains lead as a
knock inhibitor, and do not use lead additives.
Besides damaging the exhaust emission control systems on your vehicle, lead has been
strongly linked to certain forms of cancer.
Many fuels contain benzene as a solvent.
Unburned benzene has been strongly linked to
certain forms of cancer. If you live in an area
where you must fill your own gas tank, take
precautions. These may include:
• standing upwind away from the filler nozzle
while refueling
• refueling only at gas stations with vapor
Use of Additives
With the exception of gas line antifreeze during
winter months, do not add solvents, thickeners, or other store-bought additives to your
vehicle's fuel, cooling, or lubricating systems.
Overuse may damage your engine, and some
of these additives contain organically volatile
chemicals. Do not needlessly expose yourself
to these chemicals.
WARNING
Never carry a cell phone that is switched
on while refueling your vehicle. If the phone
rings, this may cause a spark that could
ignite gasoline fumes, resulting in fire and
injury.
WARNING
Carbon monoxide is a poisonous, colorless,
and odorless gas. It is present in all exhaust
gases. If you ever smell exhaust fumes
inside the vehicle, make sure the passenger
compartment is ventilated, and immediately
return the vehicle to a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician for correction.

Trailer Stability Assist (TSA)
Trailer Stability Assist is a system designed to
help stabilize a vehicle that is towing a trailer
when the vehicle and trailer have begun to
sway and is part of the Dynamic Stability and
Traction Control system (DSTC). See page
149 for information on DSTC.
06
Function
A vehicle towing a trailer may begin to sway for
various reasons. Normally this only occurs at
high speeds but, for example, if the trailer is
overloaded or if the load is unevenly distributed
in the trailer, there is risk of swaying at speeds
``
279
06 During your trip
Towing a trailer
between approximately 45-55 mph (70-90 km/
h).
Swaying may be caused by factors such as:
• The vehicle and trailer are hit by a sudden,
strong crosswind
• The vehicle and trailer are traveling on an
uneven road surface or drive over a bump
• Sudden movements of the steering wheel
Facts about TSA
• TSA intervenes at speeds above approximately 40 mph (60 km/h)
• The DSTC symbol (
) in the instrument panel will flash when TSA is working
• If the driver switches off the DSTC system's Spin Control function, TSA will also
be switched off (but will be on again the
next time the engine is started)
06
• TSA may not intervene when the vehicle
and trailer begin to sway if the driver tries
to compensate for the swaying motion by
moving the steering wheel rapidly
How TSA works
Once swaying has begun, it can be very difficult to stop, which makes it difficult to control
the vehicle and trailer.
The TSA system continuously monitors the
vehicle's movements, particularly lateral
280
movement. If the system detects a tendency to
sway, the brakes are applied individually on the
front wheels, which has a stabilizing effect on
the vehicle and trailer. This is often enough to
enable the driver to regain control of the vehicle.
If this is not adequate to stop the swaying
motion, the brakes are applied to all of the
wheels on the vehicle and on the trailer if it is
equipped with brakes, and engine power is
temporarily reduced. As the swaying motion
begins to decrease and the vehicle-trailer have
once again become stable, TSA will no stop
regulating the brakes/engine power and the
driver regains control of the vehicle.

Emergency towing
Towing eyelet
ded on the right sides of either the front or
rear bumper (see illustration).
There are two different types of covers over
the openings for the towing eyelet and they
have to be opened differently.
• If the cover has a notch, insert a coin,
etc., into the notch and pry open the
edge of the cover. Open the cover completely and remove it.
Location of the towing eyelet
NOTE
On certain models equipped with a trailer
hitch, the towing eyelet cannot be screwed
into the hole in the rear bumper. The towing
rope should be attached to the trailer hitch
instead. For this reason, the detachable
section of the trailer hitch should be safely
stowed in the vehicle at all times.
CAUTION
• If the cover has a mark along one edge
or in a corner, press the mark while prying out the opposite side/corner using a
coin, etc. Open the cover and remove it.
Screw the towing eyelet in place, first by hand
and then using the tire iron until it is securely in
place.
After the vehicle has been towed, the eyelet
should be removed and returned to its storage
location.
If the vehicle is being towed on a flat bed
truck, the towing eyelets must not be used
to pull the vehicle up onto the flat bed.

WHEELS AND TIRES
07 Wheels and tires
General information
Introduction
Your vehicle is equipped with tires according
to the vehicle's tire information placard on the
B-pillar (the structural member at the side of
the vehicle, at the rear of the driver's door
opening).
CAUTION
Some Volvo models are equipped with an
Ultra High Performance tire and wheel combination designed to provide maximum dry
pavement performance with consideration
for hydroplaning resistance. They may be
more susceptible to road hazard damage
and, depending on driving conditions, may
achieve a tread life of less than 20,000 miles
(30,000 km). Even if this vehicle is equipped
with Volvo’s advanced AWD or DSTC system, these tires are not designed for winter
driving, and should be replaced with winter
tires when weather conditions dictate.
07
The tires have good road holding characteristics and offer good handling on dry and wet
surfaces. It should be noted however that the
tires have been developed to give these features on snow/ice-free surfaces.
Most models are equipped with "all-season"
tires, which provide a somewhat higher degree
of road holding on slippery surfaces than tires
1
286
Option or accessory on some models
without the "all-season" rating. However, for
optimum road holding on icy or snow-covered
roads, we recommend suitable winter tires on
all four wheels.
Tire age
When replacing tires, be sure that the new tires
are the same size designation, type (radial) and
preferably from the same manufacturer, on all
four wheels. Otherwise there is a risk of altering
the car's roadholding and handling characteristics.
Tires degrade over time, even when they are
not being used. It is recommended that tires
generally be replaced after 6 years of normal
service. Heat caused by hot climates, frequent
high loading conditions or Ultra Violet (U.V.)
exposure can accelerate the aging process.
The temporary spare1 should also be replaced
at 6-year intervals, even if it has never been
used.
New Tires
A tire's age can be determined by the DOT
stamp on the sidewall (see the illustration).
A tire with e.g., visible cracks or discoloration
should be replaced immediately.
Improving tire economy
• Maintain correct tire pressure. See the tire
inflation table on page 291.
• Drive smoothly: avoid fast starts, hard
braking and tire screeching.
• Tire wear increases with speed.
• Correct front wheel alignment is very
important.
Remember that tires are perishable goods. As
of 2000, the manufacturing week and year
(Department of Transportation (DOT) stamp)
will be indicated with 4 digits (e.g., 1510 means
that the tire illustrated was manufactured during week 15 of 2010).
• Unbalanced wheels impair tire economy
and driving comfort.
• Tires must maintain the same direction of
rotation throughout their lifetime.

braking properties and ability to force
aside rain, snow and slush.
WARNING
•
The wheel and tire sizes for your Volvo
are specified to meet stringent stability
and handling requirements. Unapproved wheel/tire size combinations
can negatively affect your vehicle's stability and handling.
•
Any damage caused by installation of
unapproved wheel/tire size combinations will not be covered by your new
vehicle warranty. Volvo assumes no
responsibility for death, injury, or
expenses that may result from such
installations.
• The tires with the most tread should always
be at the rear (to reduce the risk of skidding).
• Contact a Volvo workshop if you are
Summer and winter tires
unsure about the tread depth.
Storing wheels and tires
When storing complete wheels (tires mounted
on rims), they should be suspended off the
floor or placed on their sides on the floor.
Tires not mounted on rims should be stored on
their sides or standing upright, but should not
be suspended.
G021778
Tire wear
The arrows shows the direction of rotation of the
tire
• When switching between summer and
winter tires, mark the tires to indicate
where they were mounted on the car, e.g.,
LF = left front, RR = right rear
CAUTION
Tires should preferably be stored in a cool,
dry, dark place, and should never be stored
in close proximity to solvents, gasoline, oils,
etc.
Tire rotation
Your vehicle has no required tire rotation. Tire
wear is affected by a number of factors such
as tire inflation, ambient temperature, driving
style, etc.
07
• Tires with tread designed to roll in only one
direction are marked with an arrow on the
sidewall.

are printed on the side of the tire. When
approximately 1/16" (1.6 mm) is left on the
tread, these strips become visible and indicate
that the tire should be replaced. Tires with less
than 1/16" (1.6 mm) tread offer very poor traction.
•
Ideally, tire rotation should be done the
first time after approximately 3,000
miles (5,000 km) and thereafter at
6,000-mile (10,000-km) intervals. Some
customers find that tire rotation may
help to get extra mileage from tire life.
When replacing worn tires, it is recommended
that the tire be identical in type (radial) and size
as the one being replaced. Using a tire of the
same make (manufacturer) will prevent alteration of the driving characteristics of the vehicle.
•
Tire rotation should only be performed
if front/rear tire wear is fairly even and
tread height is above 1/16" (1.6 mm).

NOTE
Tire inflation placard
Tire inflation
Check tire inflation pressure regularly.
See the tire inflation table on page 291. A tire
inflation pressure placard is also located on the
driver's side B-pillar (the structural member at
the side of the vehicle, at the rear of the driver's
door opening). This placard indicates the designation of the factory-mounted tires on your
vehicle, as well as load limits and inflation pressure.
•
The placards shown indicate inflation
pressure for the tires installed on the
vehicle at the factory only.
•
A certain amount of air seepage from
the tires occurs naturally and tire pressure fluctuates with seasonal changes
in temperature. Always check tire pressure regularly.
• Use a tire gauge to check the tire inflation
pressure, including the spare, at least once
a month and before long trips. You are
strongly urged to buy a reliable tire pressure gauge, as automatic service station
gauges may be inaccurate.
• Use the recommended cold inflation pressure for optimum tire performance and
wear.
• Under-inflation or over-inflation may cause
uneven treadwear patterns.
WARNING
•
Under-inflation is the most common
cause of tire failure and may result in
severe tire cracking, tread separation,
or "blow-out," with unexpected loss of
vehicle control and increased risk of
injury.
•
Under-inflated tires reduce the load carrying capacity of your vehicle.
When weather temperature changes occur, tire
inflation pressures also change. A 10-degree
temperature drop causes a corresponding
drop of 1 psi (7 kPa) in inflation pressure. Check
your tire pressures frequently and adjust them
to the proper pressure, which can be found on
the vehicle's tire information placard or certification label.
Checking tire pressure
Cold tires
Inflation pressure should be checked when the
tires are cold.
07
The tires are considered to be cold when
they have the same temperature as the surrounding (ambient) air.
This temperature is normally reached after the
vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours.
``
289
07 Wheels and tires
Tire inflation
After driving a distance of approximately
1 mile (1.6 km), the tires are considered to be
hot. If you have to drive farther than this distance to pump your tire(s), check and record
the tire pressure first and add the appropriate
air pressure when you get to the pump.
If checking tire pressure when the tire is hot,
never "bleed" or reduce air pressure. The tires
are hot from driving and it is normal for pressures to increase above recommended cold
pressures. A hot tire at or below recommended
cold inflation pressure could be significantly
under-inflated.
6. Repeat this procedure for each tire, including the spare.
NOTE
•
•
If you overfill the tire, release air by
pushing on the metal stem in the center
of the valve. Then recheck the pressure
with your tire gauge.
Some spare tires require higher inflation
pressure than the other tires. Consult
the tire inflation pressure table on page
291 or see the inflation pressure placard.
To check inflation pressure:
1. Remove the cap from the valve on one tire,
then firmly press the tire gauge onto the
valve.

Vehicle loading
Loads
Permissible axle weight
Properly loading your vehicle will provide maximum return of vehicle design performance.
The maximum allowable weight that can be
carried by a single axle (front or rear). These
numbers are shown on the Federal/Canadian
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS/
CMVSS) label. The total load on each axle must
never exceed its maximum permissible weight.
Before loading your vehicle, familiarize yourself
with the following terms for determining your
vehicle's weight ratings, with or without a
trailer, from the vehicle's Federal/Canadian
Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS/
CMVSS) label, and the vehicle's tire information placard:
Gross vehicle weight (GVW)
The vehicle's curb weight + cargo + passengers.
Curb weight
The weight of the vehicle including a full tank
of fuel and all standard equipment. It does not
include passengers, cargo, or optional equipment.
Capacity weight
All weight added to the curb weight, including
cargo and optional equipment. When towing,
trailer hitch tongue load is also part of cargo
weight.
NOTE
For trailer towing information, please refer to
the section "Towing a trailer" on page 278.
1
NOTE
•
The location of the various labels in your
vehicle can be found on page 350.
•
A table listing important weight limits for
your vehicle can be found on page
353.
Steps for Determining Correct Load
Limit
1. Locate the statement "the combined
weight of occupants and cargo should
never exceed XXX pounds" on your vehicle's placard.
2. Determine the combined weight of the
driver and passengers that will be riding in
your vehicle.
3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver
and passengers from XXX kilograms or
XXX pounds.
4. The resulting figure equals the available
amount of cargo and luggage load
capacity. For example, if the "XXX" amount
equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five
150 lb. passengers in your vehicle, the
amount of available cargo and luggage
load capacity is 650 lbs. (1400 – 750
(5 × 150) = 650 lbs.)
5. Determine the combined weight of luggage
and cargo being loaded on the vehicle.
That weight may not safely exceed the
available cargo and luggage load capacity
calculated in Step 4.
6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load
from your trailer will be transferred to your
vehicle. Consult this manual1 to determine
how this reduces the available cargo and
luggage load capacity of your vehicle.

296
•
Exceeding the permissible axle weight,
gross vehicle weight, or any other
weight rating limits can cause tire overheating resulting in permanent deformation or catastrophic failure.
•
Do not use replacement tires with lower
load carrying capacities than the tires
that were original equipment on the
vehicle because this will lower the vehicle's GVW rating. Use only tires with the
correct load carrying capacity. Consult
your Volvo retailer for information.

Uniform Tire Quality Grading
Quality grading information
ALL PASSENGER VEHICLE TIRES MUST
CONFORM TO FEDERAL SAFETY
REQUIREMENTS IN ADDITION TO THESE
GRADES
Quality grades can be found, where applicable, on the tire sidewall between the tread
shoulder and maximum section width. For
example:
may have poor traction performance. The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on
braking (straight-ahead) traction tests and is
not a measure of cornering (turning) traction.
WARNING
The traction grade assigned to this tire is
based on braking (straight-ahead) traction
tests and is not a measure of cornering
(turning) traction.
WARNING
The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and
not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat
buildup and tire failure.
Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A
TREADWEAR
TEMPERATURE
The treadwear grade is a comparative rating
based on the wear rate of the tire when tested
under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one half (1 1/2)
times as well on the government course as a
tire graded 100. The relative performance of
tires depends upon the actual conditions of
their use, however, and many depart significantly from the norm due to variation in driving
habits, maintenance practices and differences
in road characteristics and climate.
The temperature grades are A (the highest), B,
and C, representing the tire's resistance to the
generation of heat and its ability to dissipate
heat when tested under controlled conditions
on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel.
Sustained high temperature can cause the
material of the tire to degenerate and reduce
tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to
sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds
to a minimum level of performance that all passenger vehicle tires must meet under the Federal Motor Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B
and A represent higher levels of performance
on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum
required by law.
TRACTION
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are
AA, A, B, and C, as measured under controlled
conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C

snow chains.
• If accessory, aftermarket or "custom" tires
and wheels are installed and are of a size
different than the original tires and wheels,
chains in some cases CANNOT be used.
Sufficient clearances between chains and
brakes, suspension and body components
must be maintained.
• Some strap-on type chains will interfere
with brake components and therefore
CANNOT be used.
• All Wheel Drive models: Snow chains
should only be installed on the front
wheels.
• Certain size tires may not allow the assembly of snow chains/traction devices.
07
Consult your Volvo retailer for additional snow
chain information.
•
Always follow the chain manufacturer's
installation instructions carefully. Install
chains as tightly as possible and
retighten periodically.
Never exceed the chain manufacturer's
specified maximum speed limit. (Under
no circumstances should you exceed
31 mph (50 km/h).
•
Avoid bumps, holes or sharp turns
when driving with snow chains.
•
The handling of the vehicle can be
adversely affected when driving with
chains. Avoid fast or sharp turns as well
as locked wheel braking.
Snow tires, studded tires1
Tires for winter use:
• Owners who live in or regularly commute
through areas with sustained periods of
snow or icy driving conditions are strongly
advised to fit suitable winter tires to help
retain the highest degree of traction.
• It is important to install winter tires on all
four wheels to help retain traction during

Where permitted
cornering, braking, and accelerating. Failure to do so could reduce traction to an
unsafe level or adversely affect handling.
• Do not mix tires of different design as this
could also negatively affect overall tire road
grip.
• Winter tires wear more quickly on dry roads
in warm weather. They should be removed
when the winter driving season has ended.
• Studded tires should be run-in
300 – 600 miles (500 – 1000 km) during
which the vehicle should be driven as
smoothly as possible to give the studs the
opportunity to seat properly in the tires.
The tires should have the same rotational
direction throughout their entire lifetime.
NOTE
Please consult state or provincial regulations restricting the use of studded winter
tires before installing such tires.

properly to help prevent rattling.
Certain models are equipped with a tire sealing
system* that enables you to temporarily seal a
hole in the tread surface and re-inflate a flat tire,
or to adjust a tire’s inflation pressure.
07
The system consists of an air compressor, a
container for the sealing compound, wiring to
connect the system to the vehicle’s electrical
system via one of the 12-volt sockets, and a
hose used to connect the system to the tire’s
inflation valve.
The 12-volt sockets are located in the front
tunnel console, on the rear side of the center
console in the rear seat and in the cargo
area*, see page 200.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Introduction
NOTE
USA – FCC ID: KR5S122780002
This device complies with part 15 of the
FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this
device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
The tire pressure monitoring system1 uses sensors mounted in the tire valves to check inflation pressure levels. When the vehicle is moving at a speed of approximately 20 mph
(30 km/h) or faster, these sensors transmit
inflation pressure data to a receiver located in
the vehicle.
When low inflation pressure is detected, TPMS
will light up the tire pressure warning light
) (also referred to as a telltale) in the
(
instrument panel and will display one of the
following messages in the text window: Tire
pressure low or
Tire needs air now.
1
NOTE
If a fault occurs in TPMS, the tire pressure
warning light will flash for approximately
1 minute and Tire press. syst Service
required will be displayed.
Each tire, including the spare (if provided),
should be checked monthly when cold and
inflated to the inflation pressure recommended
by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle
placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your
vehicle has tires of a different size than the size
indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation
pressure label, you should determine the
proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has
been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring
system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is
significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when
the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you
should stop and check your tires as soon as
possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated
tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to
tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel
efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the
vehicle's handling and stopping ability.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute
for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached
the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low
tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a
TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when
the system is not operating properly. The
TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with
the low tire pressure telltale. When the system
detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for
approximately one minute and then remain
continuously illuminated. This sequence will
continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as
long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system
may not be able to detect or signal low tire
pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may
occur for a variety of reasons, including the
installation of replacement or alternate tires or
wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS
from functioning properly. Always check the
TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one
or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to
ensure that the replacement or alternate tires
and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to
function properly.

Volvo maintenance
Introduction
Volvo advises you to follow the maintenance
program outlined in the Warranty and Service
Records Information booklet. This maintenance program contains inspections and services necessary for the proper function of your
vehicle. The maintenance services contain
several checks that require special tools and
training, and therefore must be performed by a
qualified technician. To keep your Volvo in top
condition, specify time-tested and proven
Genuine Volvo Parts and Accessories.
The Federal Clean Air Act – U.S.
The Federal Clean Air Act requires vehicle
manufacturers to furnish written instructions to
the ultimate purchaser to assure the proper
servicing and function of the components that
control emissions. These services, which are
listed in the "Warranty and Service Records
Information" booklet, are not covered by the
warranty. You will be required to pay for labor
and material used.
Maintenance
08
314
Your Volvo passed several major inspections
before it was delivered to you, in accordance
with Volvo specifications. The maintenance
procedures outlined in the Warranty and Service Records Information booklet, many of
which will positively affect your vehicle's emissions, should be performed as indicated. It is
recommended that receipts for vehicle emission maintenance be retained in case questions arise concerning maintenance. Inspection and maintenance should also be performed anytime a malfunction is observed or
suspected.
Applicable warranties – U.S./Canada
In accordance with applicable U.S. and Canadian regulations, the following list of warranties
is provided.
•
•
•
•
New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Parts and Accessories Limited Warranty
Corrosion Protection Limited Warranty
Seat Belt and Supplemental Restraint Systems Limited Warranty
• Emission Design and Defect Warranty
• Emission Performance Warranty
These are the federal warranties; other warranties are provided as required by state/provincial law. Refer to your separate Warranty and
Service Records Information booklet for
detailed information concerning each of the
warranties.
Periodic maintenance helps minimize
emissions
Periodic maintenance will help keep your vehicle running well. Your Warranty and Service
Records Information booklet provides a com-
prehensive periodic maintenance schedule up
to 150,000 miles (240,000 km) of vehicle maintenance. The schedule includes components
that affect vehicle emissions. This page
describes some of the emission-related components.
08 Maintenance and specifications
Maintaining your car
Owner maintenance
As needed:
Periodic maintenance requirements and intervals are described in your vehicle's Warranty
and Service Records Information booklet.
Wash the car, including the undercarriage, to
reduce wear that can be caused by a buildup
of dirt, and corrosion that can be caused by salt
residues.
The following points can be carried out
between the normally scheduled maintenance
services.
Clean leaves and twigs from air intake vents at
the base of the windshield, and from other places where they may collect.
Each time the car is refueled:
• Check the engine oil level.
• Clean the windshield, windshield wipers,
headlights, and taillights.
Monthly:
NOTE
Complete service information for qualified
technicians is available online for purchase
or subscription at www.volvotechinfo.com.
• Check cold tire pressure in all tires. Inspect
the tires for wear.
Hoisting the vehicle
• Check that engine coolant and other fluid
They are specially reinforced to bear the weight
of the vehicle. A garage jack can also be placed
under the front of the engine support frame.
Take care not to damage the splash guard
under the engine. Ensure that the jack is positioned so that the vehicle cannot slide off it.
Always use axle stands or similar structures.
If a two-post hoist is used to lift the vehicle, the
front and rear lift arm pads should be centered
under the reinforced lift plates on the inboard
edge of the sill rail (see illustration).
Emission inspection readiness
What is an Onboard Diagnostic System
(OBD II)?
OBD II is part of your vehicle's computerized
engine management system. It stores diagnostic information about your vehicle's emission
controls. It can light the Check Engine light
(MIL) if it detects an emission control "fault." A
"fault" is a component or system that is not
performing within an expected range. A fault
may be permanent or temporary. OBD II will
store a message about any fault.
levels are between the indicated "min" and
"max" markings.
• Clean interior glass surfaces with a glass
cleaner and soft paper towels.
• Wipe driver information displays with a soft
cloth.
• Visually inspect battery terminals for corrosion. Corrosion may indicate a loose terminal connector, or a battery near the end
of its useful service life. Consult your Volvo
retailer for additional information.
How do states use OBD II for emission
inspections?
If a garage jack is used to lift the vehicle, the
two jack attachments points should be used.
Many states connect a computer directly to a
vehicle's OBD II system. The inspector can
then read "faults." In some states, this type of

inspection has replaced the tailpipe emission
test.
How can my vehicle fail OBD II emission
inspection?
Your vehicle can fail OBD II emission inspection for any of the following reasons.
• If your Check Engine (MIL) light is lit, your
vehicle may fail inspection.
• If your vehicle's Check Engine light was lit,
but went out without any action on your
part, OBD II will still have a recorded fault.
Your vehicle may pass or fail, depending
on the inspection practices in your area.
• If you had recent service that required disconnecting the battery, OBD II diagnostic
information may be incomplete and "not
ready" for inspection. A vehicle that is not
ready may fail inspection.
How can I prepare for my next OBD II
emission inspection?
• If your Check Engine (MIL) light is lit – or
was lit but went out without service, have
your vehicle diagnosed and, if necessary,
serviced by a qualified Volvo technician.
• If you recently had service for a lit Check
08
316
Engine light, or if you had service that
required disconnecting the battery, a
period of driving is necessary to bring the
OBD II system to "ready" for inspection. A
half-hour trip of mixed stop-and-go/high-
way driving is typically needed to allow
OBD II to reach readiness. Your Volvo
retailer can provide you with more information on planning a trip.
• Maintain your vehicle in accordance with
your vehicle's maintenance schedule.

Fluids
Coolant
Location of the coolant reservoir
CAUTION
•
If necessary, top up the cooling system
with Volvo Genuine Coolant/Antifreeze
only (a 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze).
•
Different types of antifreeze/coolant
may not be mixed.
•
If the cooling system is drained, it
should be flushed with clean water or
premixed anti-freeze before it is refilled
with the correct mixture of water/antifreeze.
•
The cooling system must always be
kept filled to the correct level, and the
level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks. If it is not kept filled, there
can be high local temperatures in the
engine which could result in damage.
Check coolant regularly!
•
Do not top up with water only. This
reduces the rust-protective and antifreeze qualities of the coolant and has a
lower boiling point. It can also cause
damage to the cooling system if it
should freeze.
Normally, the coolant does not need to be
changed. If the system must be drained, consult a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
See page 357 for information on cooling system capacities.
•

WARNING
•
Never expose the battery to open flame
or electric spark.
•
•
Do not smoke near the battery.
Battery fluid contains sulfuric acid. Do
not allow battery fluid to contact eyes,
skin, fabrics or painted surfaces. If contact occurs, flush the affected area
immediately with water. Obtain medical
help immediately if eyes are affected.
• Never disconnect the battery when the
engine is running, or when the key is in the
ignition. This could damage the vehicle's
electrical system.
• The battery should be disconnected from
the vehicle when a battery charger is used
directly on the battery.
• To help keep the battery in good condition,
the vehicle should be driven for at least 15
minutes a week or connected to a charger
with an automatic charging function.
• If the battery is fully discharged a number
of times, this may shorten its service life.
Keeping the battery fully charged helps
prolong its service life.
NOTE
The life of the battery is shortened if it
becomes discharged repeatedly.
• The service life of a battery is affected by
factors such as driving conditions and climate. Extreme cold may also further
decrease the battery’s starting capacity.
Maintenance
• Use a screw driver to open the caps or
cover and a flashlight to inspect the level.
• Because the battery’s starting capacity
decreases with time, it may be necessary
to recharge it if the vehicle is not driven for
an extended period of time or if the vehicle
is usually only driven short distances.
• If necessary, add distilled water. The level
should never be above the indicator.
• The fluid level should be checked if the
battery has been recharged.
• After inspection, be sure the cap over each
battery cell or the cover is securely in
place.
08
• Check that the battery cables are correctly
connected and properly tightened.

Fuses
Replacing fuses
Location of the fuse boxes
There are relay/fuse boxes located in the
engine compartment, the passenger compartment, and the cargo area.
If an electrical component fails to function, this
may be due to a blown fuse. The easiest way
to see if a fuse is blown is to remove it.
To do so:
1. Pull the fuse straight out. If a fuse is difficult
to remove, a special fuse removal tool is
located on the inside of the engine compartment fuse box cover.
2. From the side, examine the curved metal
wire in the fuse to see if it is intact.
If the wire is broken, insert a new fuse of the
same color and amperage (written on the fuse).
If fuses burn out repeatedly, have the electrical
system inspected by a trained and qualified
Volvo service technician.
WARNING
Never use metal objects or fuses with higher
amperage than those stated on the following pages. Doing so could seriously damage
or overload the vehicle's electrical system.

Vehicle care
Washing the car
The following points should be kept in mind
when washing and cleaning the car:
• The car should be washed at regular intervals since dirt, dust, insects and tar spots
adhere to the paint and may cause damage. To help prevent corrosion, it is particularly important to wash the car frequently
in the wintertime.
• Avoid washing your car in direct sunlight.
Doing so may cause detergents and wax
to dry out and become abrasive. To avoid
scratching, use lukewarm water to soften
the dirt before you wash with a soft
sponge, and plenty of sudsy water.
considerably and also helps prolong the
service life of the wiper blades.
• Wash off the dirt from the underside (wheel
CAUTION
•
During high pressure washing, the
spray mouthpiece must never be closer
to the vehicle than 13" (30 cm). Do not
spray into the locks.
•
Dirt, snow, etc., on the headlights can
reduce lighting capacity considerably.
Clean the headlights regularly, for
example when refueling.
housings, fenders, etc).
• In areas of high industrial fallout, more frequent washing is recommended.
NOTE
When washing the car, remember to remove
dirt from the drain holes in the doors and
sills.
Special laminated panoramic roof cautions:
•
Always close the laminated panoramic
roof and sun shade before washing your
vehicle.
• Bird droppings: Remove from paintwork
•
as soon as possible. Otherwise the finish
may be permanently damaged.
Never use abrasive cleaning agents on
the laminated panoramic roof.
•
Never use wax on the rubber seals
around the laminated panoramic roof.
• A detergent can be used to facilitate the
softening of dirt and oil.
• Dry the car with a clean chamois and
remember to clean the drain holes in the
doors and rocker panels.
• Tar spots can be removed with tar remover
after the car has been washed.
• A stiff-bristle brush and lukewarm soapy

water can be used to clean the wiper
blades. Frequent cleaning of the windshield and wiper blades improves visibility
Exterior components
Volvo recommends the use of special cleaning
products, available at your Volvo retailer, for
cleaning colored plastic, rubber, or ornamental
components such as chromed strips on the
exterior of your vehicle. The instructions for
using these products should be followed carefully. Solvents or stain removers should not be
used.
08 Maintenance and specifications
Vehicle care
CAUTION
•
Avoid waxing or polishing plastic or rubber components
•
Polishing chromed strips can wear
away or damage the surface
•
Polishes containing abrasive substances should not be used
Automatic car wash
• We do NOT recommend washing your car
CAUTION
•
Before driving into an automatic car
wash, turn off the optional rain sensor to
avoid damaging the windshield wipers.
•
Make sure that side view mirrors, auxiliary lamps, etc, are secure, and that any
antenna(s) are retracted or removed.
Otherwise there is risk of the machine
dislodging them.
•
in an automatic wash during the first few
months (because the paint will not have
hardened sufficiently).
• An automatic wash is a simple and quick
way to clean your car, but it is worth
remembering that it may not be as thorough as when you yourself go over the car
with sponge and water. Keeping the underbody clean is most important, especially in
the winter. Some automatic washers do
not have facilities for washing the underbody.
Chromed wheels: Clean chromeplated wheels using the same detergents used for the body of the vehicle.
Aggressive wheel-cleaning agents can
permanently stain chrome-plated
wheels.
WARNING
•
•
When the vehicle is driven immediately
after being washed, apply the brakes,
including the parking brake, several
times in order to remove any moisture
from the brake linings.
Engine cleaning agents should not be
used when the engine is warm. This
constitutes a fire risk.
Exterior lighting
mal and the lights are designed to withstand
moisture. Normally, condensation will dissipate after the lights have been on for a short
time.
Polishing and waxing
• Normally, polishing is not required during
the first year after delivery, however, waxing may be beneficial.
• Before applying polish or wax the vehicle
must be washed and dried. Tar spots can
be removed with kerosene or tar remover.
Difficult spots may require a fine rubbing
compound.
• After polishing use liquid or paste wax.
• Several commercially available products
contain both polish and wax.
• Waxing alone does not substitute for polishing a dull surface.
• A wide range of polymer-based waxes can
be purchased today. These waxes are easy
to use and produce a long-lasting, highgloss finish that protects the bodywork
against oxidation, road dirt and fading.
• Do not polish or wax your vehicle in direct
sunlight (the surface of the vehicle should
not be warmer than 113 °F (45 °C).

Condensation may form temporarily on the
inside of the lenses of exterior lights such as
headlights, fog lights, or taillights. This is nor``

Vehicle care
CAUTION
Volvo does not recommend the use of longlife or durable paint protection coatings,
some of which may claim to prevent pitting,
fading, oxidation, etc. These coatings have
not been tested by Volvo for compatibility
with your vehicle's clear coat. Some of them
may cause the clear coat to soften, crack,
or cloud. Damage caused by application of
paint protection coatings may not be covered under your vehicle's paint warranty.
Cleaning the interior
Only use cleaning agents and car care products recommended by Volvo. Clean regularly
and follow the instructions included with the
car care product.
Upholstery care
Fabric
Clean with soapy water or a detergent. For
more difficult spots caused by oil, ice cream,
shoe polish, grease, etc., use a clothing/fabric
stain remover. Consult your Volvo retailer.
AlcanteraTM suede-like material
Suede-like upholstery can be cleaned with a
soft cloth and mild soap solution.
08
Leather care
Volvo's leather upholstery is manufactured
with a protectant to repel soiling. Over time,
344
sunlight, grease and dirt can break down the
protection. Staining, cracking, scuffing, and
fading can result.
4. Dry the stain with soft paper towels or a
towel, and allow the leather to dry completely.
Volvo offers an easy-to-use, non-greasy
leather care kit formulated to clean and beautify your vehicle's leather, and to renew the
protective qualities of its finish. The cleaner
removes dirt and oil buildup. The light cream
protectant restores a barrier against soil and
sunlight.
Protecting leather upholstery
Volvo also offers a special leather softener that
should be applied after the cleaner and protectant. It leaves leather soft and smooth, and
reduces friction between leather and other finishes in the vehicle.
Volvo recommends cleaning, protecting and
conditioning your vehicle's leather two to four
times a year. Ask your Volvo retailer about
Leather Care Kit 951 0251 and Leather Softener 943 7429.
Cleaning leather upholstery
1. Pour leather cleaner on a damp sponge
and squeeze it until the cleaner foams.
2. Apply the foam to the stain by moving the
sponge with circular movements.
3. Dampen the stain thoroughly with the
sponge. Let the sponge absorb the stain,
do not rub.
1. Put a small amount of protectant cream on
a cloth and apply a thin coating of cream
to the upholstery with light circular movements.
2. Allow the leather to dry for 20 minutes.
This will help the leather resist staining and
protect against sunlight's harmful UV rays.
08 Maintenance and specifications
Vehicle care
CAUTION
•
•
Under no circumstances should gasoline, naphtha or similar cleaning agents
be used on the plastic or the leather
since these can cause damage.
Take extra care when removing stains
such as ink or lipstick since the coloring
can spread.
•
Use solvents sparingly. Too much solvent can damage the seat padding.
•
Start from the outside of the stain and
work toward the center.
•
Sharp objects (e.g. pencils or pens in a
pocket) or Velcro fasteners on clothing
may damage the textile upholstery.
•
