Introduction
Owner’s Manual
A good way of getting to know your new car
is to read the owner’s manual, ideally before
your first journey. This will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with new
functions, to see how best to handle the car
in different situations, and to make the best
use of all the car’s features. Please pay
attention to the safety instructions contained
in the manual:
WARNING!
"Warning!" texts indicate where there is a
risk of personal injury in the event of the
instructions not being followed.
IMPORTANT!
"Important!" texts indicate a risk of
damage to the car in the event of the
instructions not being followed.
The equipment described in the owner’s
manual is not present in all models. In
addition to standard equipment, this manual
also describes options (factory fitted
equipment) and certain accessories (extra
equipment).

Volvo Cars and the environment
Volvo Car Corporation’s
environmental philosophy
Environmental care, safety and quality are the
three core values which influence all operations of the Volvo Car Corporation. We also
believe that our customers share our consideration for the environment.
Your Volvo complies with strict international
environmental standards and is also
manufactured in one of the cleanest and most
resource-efficient plants in the world. Volvo
Car Corporation has global certification to
the ISO 14001 environmental standard. This
standard supports the work within the area of
the environment.
EPI (Environmental Product Information) is
supplied for all Volvo models. There you can
see how the car’s lifecycle affects the
environment.

Fuel consumption
Volvo cars have competitive fuel
consumption in each of their respective
classes. Lower fuel consumption generally
results in lower emission of the greenhouse
gas, carbon dioxide.
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption. For more information read
under the heading Reducing environmental impact on page 4.
Efficient emission control
Your Volvo is manufactured following the
concept Clean inside and out – a concept
that encompasses a clean interior
environment as well as highly efficient
emission control. In many cases the exhaust
emissions are well below the applicable
standards.
In addition there is a special radiator coating,
PremAir®1, which can convert hazardous
ground-level ozone into pure oxygen when
the ozone passes the radiator. The higher the
ozone content in the air the more ozone is
converted.

Volvo Cars and the environment
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
A passenger compartment filter prevents
dust and pollen from entering the passenger
compartment via the air intake.
1
A sophisticated air quality system, IAQS
(Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the
incoming air is cleaner than the air in the
traffic outside.
The system consists of an electronic sensor
and a carbon filter. The incoming air is
monitored continuously and if there is an
increase in the level of certain unhealthy
gases such as carbon monoxide then the air
intake is closed. Such a situation may arise in
heavy traffic, queues and tunnels for example.
The entry of nitrous oxides, ground-level
ozone and hydrocarbons is prevented by the
carbon filter.
Textile standard
The interior of a Volvo is designed to be
pleasant and comfortable, even for people
with contact allergies and for asthma
sufferers. All of our upholstery and interior
textiles are tested with respect to certain
unhealthy substances and allergens as well
as emissions. This means that all textiles fulfil
1.
4
Option
the requirements in the Öko-Tex 100
standard2, a major advance towards a
healthier passenger compartment
environment.
Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts,
carpets, thread and fabrics for example. The
leather in the upholstery undergoes
chromium-free tanning with natural plant
substances and fulfils the certification
requirements.
Volvo workshops and the
environment
Regular maintenance creates the conditions
for a long service life for the car with low fuel
consumption, and this way you contribute to
a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s
workshops are entrusted with the repair and
maintenance of the car, it becomes part of
our system. We make clear demands
regarding the way in which our workshops
are designed in order to prevent spills and
discharges into the environment. Our
workshop staff have the knowledge and the
tools required to guarantee good environmental care.

Reducing environmental impact
You can help reduce environmental impact,
for example, by driving economically, by
purchasing eco-labelled car care products
and by servicing and maintaining the car
according to the instructions in the owner’s
manual.
The following hints will help you to do your bit
for the environment:
• Decrease fuel consumption by choosing
ECO tyre pressure, see page 155.
• Since a roof load and ski
box increase air
resistance, leading to
significantly higher fuel
consumption, they
should be removed
immediately after use.
• Remove unnecessary items from the car the greater the load the higher the fuel
consumption.
• Is your car equipped with an engine block
heater? If so, use it for a few hours before
starting from cold to reduce fuel
consumption and exhaust emissions.
• Drive gently and avoid braking too hard.
Volvo Cars and the environment
• Drive in the highest gear
possible. Low engine
speeds result in lower
fuel consumption.
• Ease back on the accelerator on downhill
gradients.
• Use engine braking to slow down.
• Avoid idling. Take consideration of local
regulations. Switch off the engine in
longer stationary traffic.
• Always dispose of
environmentally
hazardous waste, such
as batteries and oils, in
an environmentally safe
manner. If uncertain,
consult an authorised Volvo workshop for
advice.
• Service your car regularly.
These hints will help you to reduce your fuel
consumption without increasing your travel
time or lessening the enjoyment of driving.
Apart from being kind to your car, you’ll be
saving money - and the Earth’s resources.

Seatbelts
Tensioning the hip strap. The belt must be
positioned low down.
Always use a seatbelt
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if seatbelts are not used. Ensure
that all passengers use their seatbelts.
Putting on a seatbelt:
– Pull the belt out slowly and secure it by
pressing the buckle into the lock. A loud
"click" indicates that the belt has locked.
Taking off a seatbelt:
– Press the red lock button and let the belt
retract. If the belt does not retract fully,
feed the belt in by hand so that it does not
hang lose.
The belt locks and cannot be withdrawn:
• If it is pulled out too quickly.
• During braking and acceleration.
• If the car leans heavily.
It is important that the belt lies against the
body so it can provide maximum protection.
Do not lean the backrest too far back. The
seatbelt is designed to protect in a normal
seating position.
Keep the following in mind:
• Do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the belt from fitting properly.
• Ensure the belt is not twisted or caught
on anything.
• The hip strap must be positioned low
down (not over the abdomen).
• Tension the hip strap over the lap by
pulling the diagonal shoulder belt as illustrated.
WARNING!
Each belt is intended for one person only.
10
WARNING!
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a
seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly,
this may diminish the protection provided
by the airbag in the event of a collision.
WARNING!
Never modify or repair the seatbelts
yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo
workshop.
If the belt has been subjected to a major
load, such as in a collision, the entire belt
must be replaced. Some of the protective
characteristics of the belt may have been
lost, even if it appears to be undamaged.
Replace the seatbelt if the belt is worn or
damaged. The new seatbelt must be typeapproved and intended for installation in
the same position as the replaced belt.
Safety
Seatbelts
child seat is fitted in the front seat, the
seatbelt reminder does not switch on.
Seatbelts and pregnancy
The seatbelt should always be worn during
pregnancy. But it is crucial that it be worn in
the correct way. The diagonal section should
wrap over the shoulder then be routed
between the breasts and to the side of the
abdomen. The lap section should lay flat over
the thighs and as low as possible under the
abdomen. It must never be allowed to ride
upward. Remove all slack from the belt and
insure that it fits close to the body without any
twists.
Seatbelt reminder
The seatbelt warning symbol in the combined
instrument panel and above the rearview
mirror illuminates until the driver and front
seat passenger buckle their seatbelts. The
seatbelt reminder switches off after
6 seconds if speed is below 10 km/h. If the
driver or front seat passenger have not
buckled their seatbelts, the reminder
switches on if speed exceeds 10 km/h and
switches off if speed drops below 5 km/h.
As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers
should adjust their seats and steering wheel
such that they can easily maintain control of
the vehicle as they drive (which means they
must be able to easily operate the foot pedals
and steering wheel). Within this context, they
should strive to position the seat with as large
a distance as possible between their
abdomen and the steering wheel.
Seatbelts and pregnancy.
Seatbelt tensioner
All the seatbelts are equipped with belt
tensioners. A mechanism in the belt tensioner
tightens the belt around the body in the event
of a sufficiently violent collision. This provides
more effective restraint for passengers.
If the seatbelt is released, the function reactivates when speed exceeds 10 km/h.
NOTE! The seatbelt reminder is intended for
an adult sitting in the front seat. If a belt-fitted

not functioning fully. The symbol can
indicate a fault in the seatbelt buckle,
SIPS, SRS or IC system. Contact an
authorised Volvo workshop immediately.
Safety
Airbags (SRS)
WARNING!
To minimise the risk of injury if the airbag
deploys, passengers must sit as upright
as possible with their feet on the floor and
backs against the backrest. Seatbelts
must be secured.
WARNING!
Airbag (SRS) on the driver’s side
The car has an SRS airbag (Supplemental
Restraint System) in the steering wheel to
supplement the protection afforded by the
seatbelt. This airbag is fitted into the centre of
the steering wheel. The steering wheel is
marked SRS AIRBAG.
WARNING!
Airbag (SRS) on
the passenger side
The car has an SRS airbag (Supplemental
Restraint System) to supplement the
protection afforded by the seatbelt. The
passenger airbag1 is fitted behind a panel
above the glovebox. This panel is marked
SRS AIRBAG.
Never place a child in a child seat or on a
booster cushion in the front seat if the
airbag (SRS) is activated1.
Never allow a child to stand or sit in front
of the front passenger seat. No one
shorter than 140 cm should sit in the front
passenger seat if the airbag (SRS) is
activated.
Failure to follow the advice given above
can endanger the life of the child.
1. For information on activated/deactivated
airbag (SRS) see page16.
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a
seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly,
this may diminish the protection provided
by the airbag in the event of a collision.
1.
Not all cars have a passenger airbag
(SRS). This can be unselected when
the car is ordered.
13
Safety
Airbags (SRS)
NOTE! The airbags have a function whereby
their capacities are adapted to the collision
force to which the vehicle is subjected.
SRS system, left-hand drive.
SRS system, right-hand drive.
SRS system
NOTE! The sensors react differently
depending on the course of the collision and
whether the seatbelts on the driver and
passenger side are used. It is therefore
possible that only one (or none) of the
airbags may inflate in a collision. The SRS
system senses the force of the collision on
the car and adapts accordingly so that one or
more airbags is deployed.
The system consists of airbags and sensors.
A sufficiently violent collision trips the
sensors and the airbag(s) is/are inflated with
hot gas. To cushion the impact, the airbag
deflates when compressed. When this
occurs, smoke escapes into the car. This is
completely normal. The entire process,
including inflation and deflation of the airbag,
occurs within tenths of a second.
WARNING!
Repairs must only be performed by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Work on the SRS system can cause
malfunction and result in serious personal
injury.

Activating/deactivating
The switch is located on the passenger end
of the dashboard and is accessible when the
passenger door is open. Check that the
switch is in the required position. Volvo
recommends that that the ignition key is used
to change position. (Other items with a shape
similar to a key can be used.)
The airbag (SRS) for the front passenger
seat can be deactivated using a switch. This
is necessary if a child seat is to be fitted there
for example.
Indicator
A text message in the rearview mirror
indicates that the passenger airbag (SRS) is
deactivated.
WARNING!
If the car is equipped with a front
passenger airbag (SRS), but does not
have PACOS, the airbag will always be
activated.
16
Deactivated airbag (passenger seat):
No one taller than 140 cm should ever sit
in the front passenger seat when the
airbag is deactivated.
Failure to follow the advice given above
can endanger life.
Safety
Activating/deactivating the airbag (SRS)
WARNING!
Do not allow anyone to sit in the front
passenger seat if the text message in the
roof panel indicates that the airbag (SRS)
is deactivated and the airbag warning
symbol is displayed in the combined
instrument panel. This indicates that there
has been a severe malfunction. Contact
an authorised Volvo workshop as soon as
possible.

Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
WARNING!
Do not put objects in the area between
the outside of the seat and the door panel,
since this area is required by the side
airbag.
WARNING!
Use only Volvo genuine car seat covers, or
seat covers approved by Volvo. Other
seat covers may impede the operation of
the side air bags.
Side airbag locations.
Inflated side airbag.
Child seats and side airbags
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
A large proportion of the collision force is
transferred by the SIPS (Side Impact
Protection System) to the floor, roof, beams,
pillars, and other structural parts of the body.
The side airbags on the driver’s and front
passenger seats protect the chest area and
are an important part of the SIPS. The side
airbags are located in the front seat
backrests.
WARNING!
Side airbags are a supplement to the
SIPS system. Always wear a seatbelt.
WARNING!
Repairs must only be performed by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Work on the SIPS system can cause
malfunction and result in serious personal
injury.
The side airbag does not diminish the
protection provided by the car to children
seated in a child seat or on a booster
cushion.
A child seat or booster cushion can be
placed on the front passenger seat provided
that the car does not have an activated1
passenger airbag.

Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
Driver’s side
Passenger side
SIPS bags
The SIPS bag system consists of side
airbags and sensors. A sufficiently violent
collision trips the sensors and the side
airbags are inflated. The airbag inflates
between the occupant and the door panel
and thereby cushions the initial impact while
deflating. The side airbag is normally only
deployed on the side of the collision.
19
Safety
Inflatable Curtain (IC)
Properties
The inflatable curtain, IC (Inflatable Curtain),
is a supplement to the SIPS system. It is fitted
in the headlining along both sides of the roof
and protects both front and rear seat
passengers. The inflatable curtain is
activated by sensors in the event of a sufficiently violent collision and the inflatable
curtain inflates. The inflatable curtain helps to
prevent the driver and passengers from
striking their heads on the inside of the car
during a collision.
20
WARNING!
Never hang or fasten anything on the roof
handles. The hook is only intended for
light outer garments (not for hard objects
such as umbrellas).
Do not screw or fit anything to the
headlining, door pillars or side panels.
This could compromise the intended
protection. Only use Volvo genuine parts
that are approved for placement in these
areas.
WARNING!
Do not load the car higher than 50 mm
under the top edge of the side windows.
Otherwise, the intended protection of the
inflatable curtain, which is concealed in
the headlining, may be compromised.
WARNING!
The inflatable curtain is a supplement to
the seatbelts.
Always use a seatbelt.
Safety
WHIPS
Protection against whiplash
injury – WHIPS
The whiplash protection system (WHIPS)
consists of energy absorbing backrests and
specially designed head restraints for the
front seats. The system is actuated by a rearend collision, where the angle and speed of
the collision, and the nature of the colliding
vehicle all have an influence.
WARNING!
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.
Properties of the seat
When the WHIPS system is deployed, the
front seat backrests fall backward to alter the
position of the driver and front seat
passenger. This diminishes the risk of
whiplash injury.
WARNING!
Never modify or repair the seat or WHIPS
system yourself. Contact an authorised
Volvo workshop.
WHIPS system and child seats/
booster cushions
The WHIPS system does not diminish the
protection provided by the car to children
seated in a child seat or on a booster
cushion.
Correct seating position
For the best possible protection, the driver
and front seat passenger should sit in the
centre of the seat with as little space as
possible between the head and the head
restraint.
21
Safety
WHIPS
WARNING!
If a seat has been subjected to extreme
forces, such as due to a rear collision, the
WHIPS system must be checked by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Part of the WHIPS system’s protective
capacity may have been lost even if the
seats appear to be undamaged. Contact
an authorised Volvo workshop to have the
system checked even after a minor rearend collision.
Do not obstruct the WHIPS
system
WARNING!
Do not squeeze rigid objects between the
rear seat cushion and the front seat
backrest. Make sure you do not to
obstruct the function of the WHIPS
system.

object hit, the speed of the car, the angle of the collision etc. affects how the different safety systems of the car are activated.
If the airbags have been deployed, the
following is recommended:
• Have the car transported to an authorised
Volvo workshop. Do not drive with
deployed airbags.
• Let an authorised Volvo workshop replace
components in the car’s safety system.
• Always contact a doctor.
NOTE! The SRS, SIPS, IC and belt tensioner
systems are deployed only once during a
collision.
WARNING!
The Airbag control unit is located in the
centre console. If the centre console is
drenched with water or other liquid,
disconnect the battery cables. Do not
attempt to start the car since the airbags
may deploy. Have the car transported to
an authorised Volvo workshop.
WARNING!
Never drive with deployed airbags. They
can make steering difficult. Other safety
systems may also be damaged. The
smoke and dust created when the airbags
are deployed can cause skin and eye
irritation after intensive exposure. In case
of irritation, wash with cold water. The
rapid deployment sequence and airbag
fabric may cause friction and skin burns.

Safety
Child safety
Children of all ages and sizes must always sit
correctly secured in the car. Never allow a
child to sit on the knee of a passenger.
Volvo’s own child safety equipment is
designed for your car. Use Volvo genuine
equipment to best ensure that the mounting
points and attachments are correctly
positioned and are sufficiently strong.
You may place:
Children should sit comfortably
and safely
• A child seat or booster cushion on the
front passenger seat, provided the
passenger airbag is not activated1.
• A rear-facing child seat in the rear seat
that uses the back of the front seat as
support.
Child seats and airbags (SRS)
Always place a child in the rear seat if the
passenger airbag (SRS) is activated1. A child
in a child seat on the front passenger seat
may suffer serious injury if the airbag deploys.
The position of a child in the car and the
choice of equipment is dictated by the child’s
weight and size, for more information see
page 26.
NOTE! Regulations regarding the placement
of children in cars vary from country to
country. Check what laws apply.

Check that:
• The seatbelt is locked.
• The seatbelt is in contact with the child’s
body and is not slack or twisted, and that
the belt is positioned correctly across the
shoulder.
• The hip strap is low across the hips for
optimum protection.
• The belt does not touch the child’s throat
or lie below the shoulder.
• Carefully adjust the position of the head
restraint to suit the child.
Raising the booster cushion
– Pull the handle to raise the booster
cushion (1).
– Grasp the cushion with both hands and
push it backwards (2).
– Push until it locks in place (3).
WARNING!
The booster cushion must be in the locked

WARNING!
Repair or replacement should only be
performed by an authorised Volvo
workshop. Do not make any modifications
or additions to the booster cushion.
If an integrated booster cushion has been
subjected to a major load, such as in
conjunction with a collision, the entire
booster cushion must be replaced. Even if
the booster cushion appears to be
undamaged, it may not afford the same
level of protection. The booster cushion
must also be replaced if it is heavily worn.
Lowering the booster cushion

Safety
Child safety
Fitting a child seat
Volvo has child safety products that are
designed for and tested by Volvo.
WARNING!
Booster cushions/child seats with steel
braces or some other design that could
rest on the seatbelt buckle’s opening
button must not be used, as they could
cause the seatbelt buckle to open
accidentally.
Do not allow the upper section of the child
seat to rest against the windscreen.
When using other products that are available
on the market, it is important to read the fitting
instructions included with the product.
• Do not attach the straps for the child seat
to the horizontal adjustment bar, springs,
rails or beams under the seat. Sharp
edges can damage the straps.
• Allow the back of the child seat to rest
against the dashboard. This applies to
cars without a passenger airbag, or
where the airbag is deactivated.
30
WARNING!
Never place the child seat in the front seat
if the car is equipped with an activated1
front passenger airbag. If problems arise
when fitting child safety products, contact
the manufacturer for clearer instructions.
1. For information on activated/deactivated
airbag (SRS) see page 17.
ISOFIX fixture system for child
seats (option)
The outer rear seats have ISOFIX attachment
points for child seats. Contact a Volvo dealer
for further information on child safety
equipment.

Child safety
WARNING!
If your car is fitted with an extra seat then
the tailgate must be equipped with a lock
cylinder. Unlocking from the outside can
now take place in the normal way (key in
driver’s door and/or with the remote
control) as well as by using the key in the
tailgate lock cylinder.
The child safety locks in the tailgate must
be activated, in order to prevent a child
accidentally opening the tailgate from the
inside.
Extra seat (option)
The extra seat is suitable for two children,
each weighing between 15 and 36 kg and up
to max. 140 cm tall. The maximum total
weight is 72 kg.
Folding up
– Remove the cargo area cover if your car is
so equipped.
– Fold the backrest section forwards until it
locks in place.
– Fold the seat cushion forwards.
Lowering
– Fold the seat cushion rearwards.
– Pull the backrest section’s handle to open
it and then fold it downwards.
If you must take the cargo area cover along
on a trip while using the extra seat in the
cargo area, proceed as follows:
– Fold both backrests of the backseat into a
more upright position (see page 91).
– Carefully position the detached cargo
area cover between the rear seat
backrests and the extra seat. Fold up the
extra seat’s head restraint.
WARNING!
When the extra seat is being used, both of
the rear seat backrests must be in the
raised position, the safety net removed,
and the child safety lock open. This is to
enable the child to leave the car in the
event of an accident.
If your car is fitted with a steel mesh then,
without exception, this must be removed
before the extra seat is used.

This is most easily done by:
• pressing the READ button or
• activating main beam or
• turning on the ignition.
The parking heater can be started immediately or set with two different start times
using TIMER 1 and TIMER 2. Start time
refers to the time the car should be heated
and ready.
The car’s electronic system calculates when
heating should be started based on the
outside temperature. If the outside temperature exceeds 25 °C, the heater does not
switch on. At temperatures from −10 °C and

Interior
Cargo area
General
Payload depends on the car’s total kerb
weight, including any accessories that are
mounted. Kerb weight includes the driver, the
weight of the fuel tank when filled to 90 %
and various fluids, such as washer fluid and
coolant. Mounted accessories, i.e. towbar,
load carrier, space box, etc., are included in
the kerb weight.
The payload capacity of the car is reduced by
the number of passengers and their weight.
WARNING!
The driving characteristics of the car
change based on its kerb weight and how
heavily it is loaded.
Loading the cargo area
The seatbelts and airbags provide the driver
and passengers substantial protection,
especially in head-on collisions. However,
you must also remember to protect yourself
against injuries from behind. When loading
cargo, bear in mind that improperly secured
or incorrectly loaded objects in the cargo
area could be thrown forward with great
speed and force in the event of a collision or
sudden braking, causing serious injuries.
NOTE! Bear in mind that if an object
weighing 20 kg is subjected to a head-on
collision at a speed of 50 km/h, its impact
weight will be 1000 kg.
94
Think about the following when loading:
• Place the load by the backrest.
• Position heavy loads as low as possible.
• Position wide loads on each side of the
division in the backrest.
• Secure the load with retaining straps
using the car’s lashing eyes.
• Never load above the backrest without a
load net.
• When the rear seat backrest is folded
down, do not load objects higher than
50 mm from the top edge of the rear
passenger door windows. Otherwise, the
protection offered by the inflatable curtain
hidden inside the headlining will be
compromised.
WARNING!
Do not load extremely heavy objects up by
the front seats. The lowered backrest will
be pressed down unnecessarily hard.
Never load cargo above the backrests! If
you do so, the load could be thrown
forward in the event of sudden braking or
a collision and severely injure you or your
passengers. Remember to always secure
(bind) the load properly.

compromised.
NOTE! Make sure that the holes in the plastic
ferrules on the top of the backrest engage
with the hooks on the bottom of the seat
cushion.
When you later raise the backrest and seat
cushion, the head restraints must be returned
to their normal positions.

Starting and driving
General
Economical driving
Economical driving results from driving gently
with anticipation and adapting your driving
style and speed to the situation.
Keep in mind the following:
• Drive the engine to operating temperature
as soon as possible! That is to say: do not
let the engine idle, but drive with a light
load as soon as you can.
• A cold engine consumes more fuel than a
warm one.
• Avoid driving short distances where the
engine never has time to reach operating
temperature.
• Drive gently! Avoid unnecessary quick
accelerations and heavy braking.
• Do not drive with unnecessary, heavy
loads in the car.
• Do not use winter tyres when the roads
are clear and dry.
• Remove the load carrier when it is not in
use.
• Do not open side windows unnecessarily.
Do not drive with the tailgate
open
If you drive with the tailgate open, some of the
exhaust gases and poisonous carbon
monoxide could be sucked into the car
114
through the cargo area. If you must drive a
short distance with the tailgate open,
proceed as follows:
– Close all windows.
– Distribute the air between the windscreen
and floor while running the fan at high
speed.
Your new car – slippery road
surfaces
Driving on a slippery road may feel different
depending on whether you choose a car with
a manual or an automatic gearbox. Practice
skid driving under controlled conditions so
that you know how your new car reacts.
Driving in water
The car can be driven through water at a
maximum depth of 25 cm at a maximum
speed of 10 km/h. Extra caution should be
exercised when passing through flowing
water.
IMPORTANT!
Engine damage may occur if water enters
the air filter.
In greater depths, water can enter the
transmission. This reduces the lubricating
ability of the oils and shortens the service
life of these systems.
When driving in water, maintain a low speed
and do not stop the car. When the water has
been passed, depress the brake pedal lightly
and check that full brake function is achieved.
Water and mud for example can make the
brake linings wet resulting in delayed brake
function.
NOTE! Clean the electric contacts of the
electric engine block heater and trailer
coupling after driving in water and mud.
IMPORTANT!
Do not let the car stand with water over
the sills for any long period of time. This
could cause electrical malfunctions.
In the event of stalling in water, do not try
to restart. Tow the car out of the water.
Starting and driving
General
Do not overload the battery
The electrical functions in the car load the
battery to varying degrees. Avoid having the
ignition key in position II when the engine is
turned off. Use position I instead, as less
power is used. The 12 volt outlet in the cargo
area supplies power even when the ignition
key is removed.
Examples of functions that use a lot of power:
• ventilation fan
• windscreen wipers
• audio system
• parking lights
Also take note of different accessories that
load the electrical system. Do not use
functions that consume a lot of current when
the engine is switched off. A text is shown in
the display in the combined instrument panel
if battery voltage is low. The message in the
display remains until the engine has started.
The energy economy function shuts down
certain functions or reduces the load on the
battery, e.g. by lowering ventilation fan speed
and switching off the audio system.
Do not allow the engine and
cooling system to overheat
Under certain conditions, e.g. when driving in
hilly terrain and with a heavy load, especially
in warm weather, there is a risk of the engine
and cooling system overheating.
To avoid overheating in the cooling
system:
• Drive at low speeds if driving with a trailer
up a long incline.
• Switch off the air conditioning temporarily.
• Avoid letting the engine idle.
• Do not turn the engine off immediately
you stop, if the car has been driven hard.
• Remove any auxiliary lamps from in front
of the grille if driving in extreme high
temperatures.
To avoid the engine overheating:
Do not exceed engine speeds of 4500 rpm
(diesel engine: 3500 rpm) if driving with a
trailer or caravan in hilly terrain. The oil
temperature can become too high.
Charge the battery by starting the engine.
115
Starting and driving
Refuelling
After refuelling, replace the fuel cap and turn
until one or more clicks is heard.
WARNING!
Never carry an activated mobile phone
when refuelling – the ring signal could
cause spark build-up and ignite petrol
fumes, leading to fire and injury.
Refuelling with petrol
The fuel cap is inside the fuel filler flap on the
right-hand rear wing and hangs up on the
inside of the fuel filler flap.
Opening the fuel filler flap
The fuel filler flap can be opened when the
car is unlocked.
NOTE! The filler flap remains unlocked for ten
minutes after the car has been locked.
Fuel filler flap
High outside temperatures can cause some
overpressure in the tank. Open the cap
slowly.
Do not overfill the tank but fill until the pump
nozzle cuts out.
NOTE! Excess fuel in the tank can overflow in
hot weather.
NOTE! Do not add cleaning additives unless
specifically recommended by a Volvo
workshop.
IMPORTANT!
Petrol-powered cars must always be
refuelled with unleaded petrol so as not
to damage the catalytic converter.
Refuelling with diesel
At low temperatures, ( –5°C to –40°C), a
paraffin precipitate may form in the diesel
fuel, which can lead to ignition problems.
116
Make sure you use a special winter grade fuel
during cold periods.
Starting and driving
Starting the car
Before starting the engine
– Apply the parking brake.
Automatic gearbox
– Move the gear selector into position P
or N.
Manual gearbox
– Move the gear lever into neutral and fully
depress the clutch pedal. This is particularly important in very cold conditions.
NOTE! The idling speed can be noticeably
higher than normal for certain engine types
during cold starting. This is so that the
emissions system can reach normal
operating temperature as quickly as possible,
which minimises exhaust emissions and
protects the environment.
NOTE! The master key blade must be fully
extended (as illustrated on page 102) when
starting the car. Otherwise there is a risk that
the immobiliser function will prevent the car
from starting.
Starting the engine
Petrol
– Turn the ignition key to the start position.
If the engine does not start within 510 seconds, release the key and repeat
the start attempt.
WARNING!
Never remove the ignition key from the
steering lock while driving or when the car
is being towed. The steering lock could
otherwise be activated, making it impossible to steer the car.
The ignition key must be in position II
when the car is towed.
Diesel
– Turn the ignition key to the drive position.
An indicator symbol in the combined
instrument panel illuminates to show that
engine preheating is underway.
– Turn the ignition key to the start position
when the indicator symbol goes out.
Diesel particle filter (DPF)
Diesel cars are equipped with a particle filter,
which results in more efficient emission
control. The particles in the exhaust gases
are collected in the filter during normal
driving. So-called "regeneration" is started in
order to burn away the particles and empty
the filter. This requires the engine to have
reached normal operating temperature.
Regeneration of the filter takes place
automatically at an interval of approximately
300 —900 km depending on driving conditions. Regeneration normally takes between
10 and 20 minutes. During this time fuel
consumption may increase slightly.
Regeneration in cold weather
If the car is frequently driven short distances
in cold weather then the engine does not
reach normal operating temperature. This
means that regeneration of the diesel particle
filter does not take place and the filter is not
emptied.
When the filter has become approximately
80 % full of particles, a yellow warning
triangle illuminates on the dashboard, and the
message, SOOT FILTER FULL SEE
MANUAL is shown on the dashboard display.
Start regeneration of the filter by driving the
car until the engine reaches normal operating
temperature, preferably on a main road or
motorway. The car should then be driven for
approximately 20 minutes more. When
regeneration is underway the engine power is
reduced.
When regeneration is complete the warning
message is cleared automatically.
Use the parking heater (option) in cold
weather so that the engine reaches normal
operating temperature more quickly.
117

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

To put the car in reverse, the gear lever must
first be moved to neutral (between 3rd and
4th gear). Thus, reverse cannot be directly
selected from 5th gear due to the reverse
gear inhibitor.
For the best possible fuel economy, use the
highest gear possible as often as possible.
119
Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
Cold start
When starting in low temperatures, the gear
changes can sometimes feel hard. This is due
to the gearbox oil’s viscosity at low temperatures. To minimise engine emissions, the
gearbox shifts up later than normal when the
engine is started at low temperatures.
Turbo engine
When the engine is cold, the transmission
shifts gears at higher revs. This allows the
catalytic converter to reach normal operating
temperature more quickly, with less exhaust
emissions.
Adaptive system
The gearbox is controlled by what is known
as an adaptive system. The system continually monitors how the gearbox is behaving
and senses every gear change for optimum
change quality.
Lock-up function
The gears have a lock-up function (locked
gears), which gives better engine braking and
lower fuel consumption.
Safety systems
Cars with an automatic gearbox have special
safety systems.

Automatic gearbox
Geartronic1
The V70 R with Geartronic has an S button
instead of a W button located by the gear
selector. The gearbox sports programme is
activated using the S button. An LED in the
button illuminates to indicate active mode.
The S programme provides sportier characteristics. It allows higher engine speed for the
gears while responding more quickly to
acceleration. During active driving, the use of
a lower gear is prioritised, – leading to a
delayed upshift.
1.
V70 R has Geartronic as standard.
Manual positions, Geartronic
To move from the automatic driving
position D to a manual position, move the
gear selector to the left. To go from
position MAN to the automatic driving
position D, move the selector to the right to
position D.
While driving
The manual gearshift mode can be selected
at any time while driving. The engaged gear is
locked until you choose another gear. The car
will only shift down automatically if you slow
down to a very slow speed.
If the gear lever is moved to – (minus) the car
changes down a gear and engine brakes at
the same time. If the gear lever is moved to
+ (plus) the car changes up a gear.
P – Park
Select this position when you wish to start
the engine or park the car.
The car must be stationary when you
select P.
In P the gearbox is mechanically locked.
Always apply the parking brake when parking
the car.
R – Reverse
The car should be stationary when you
select R.
N – Neutral
N is the neutral position. No gear is engaged
and the engine can be started. Apply the
parking brake when the car is stationary with
the gear selector is in position N.
121

Automatic gearbox
D – Drive
D is the normal driving position. The car
automatically shifts between the different
gears of the gearbox based on the level of
acceleration and speed. The car should be
stationary when selecting D from position R.
4 – Low gear
Up and downshifts between 1st, 2nd, 3rd
and 4th are automatic. There is no upshift to
5th gear.
Position 4 can be used:
• For mountain driving.
• When driving with a trailer.
• To increase engine braking.
3 – Low gear
Up and downshifts between 1 st, 2 nd, and 3
rd are automatic. There is no upshift to 4 th
gear.
Position 3 can be used:
• For mountain driving.
• When driving with a trailer.
• To increase engine braking.
L – Low gear
Select L if you wish to drive in 1st or 2nd.
Position L gives the best engine braking for
mountain driving, etc.
W – Winter.
1
Use the W button by the
gear selector to engage and
disengage the winter
programme W. The
symbol W is shown in the
combined instrument panel
when the winter programme is activated.
The winter programme starts the gearbox in
3rd gear to make it easier to pull off on
slippery roads. When the programme is
engaged, lower gears are activated only by
kick-down.
The W programme can only be selected in
position D.
Kick-down
When the accelerator is pressed all the way
to the floor, beyond the position normally
regarded as full acceleration, a lower gear is
immediately engaged. This is known as kickdown.
When maximum speed for this gear is
reached, or if the accelerator is released from
the kick-down position, the gearbox automatically changes up.
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
1.
122
V70 R with Geartronic has an S
button instead.
To prevent overrevving, the gearbox control
program has a protective downshift inhibitor.
The kick-down function2 cannot be used in
the manual positions. Return to automatic
position D.
All-wheel drive – AWD
All-wheel drive is always engaged.
All-wheel drive means that all four road
wheels are driven at the same time. Power is
automatically distributed between front and
rear wheels. An electronically controlled
clutch system distributes the power to the
pair of wheels that grips best. This provides
the best traction and prevents wheel spin.
Under normal driving conditions, the majority
of power is transmitted to the front wheels.
All-wheel drive improves driving safety in rain,
snow and icy conditions.
Speed related power steering3
If the car is equipped with speed related
power steering this means that it is easier to
steer at low speeds, which in turn facilitates
parking etc.
As speed is increased the steering force is
adapted to give the driver enhanced sensitivity.

Starting and driving
Brake system
Brake servo
If the car is rolling or is being towed with the
engine turned off, the brake pedal must be
pressed about five times harder than when
the engine is running. If the brake pedal is
pressed when the engine is started, you will
feel the pedal drop. This is normal and due to
the brake servo becoming active. This may be
more noticeable if the car has emergency
brake assistance (EBA).
NOTE! If braking with the engine switched
off, press the brake pedal sharply once, not
repeatedly.
WARNING!
The brake servo only works when the
engine is running.
Brake circuits
This symbol lights if a brake circuit is
not working.
If a fault should occur in one of the
circuits, it is still possible to brake the car. The
brake pedal will travel further and may feel
softer than normal. Harder pressure on the
pedal is needed to produce the normal
braking effect.
Dampness can affect braking characteristics
Brake components become wet when the car
is driven in heavy rain, through pools of water
or when the car is washed. This may alter
brake pad friction characteristics so that
there is a delay before braking effect is
noticed.
Press the brake pedal lightly from time to time
if driving for long stretches in rain or slushy
snow, as well as after setting off in very damp
or cold weather. This warms up the braking
surfaces and dries off any water. It is also
recommended to do this before parking the
car for a long period in such weather conditions.
If the brakes are used heavily
When driving in the Alps or other roads with
similar characteristics, the car’s brakes are
heavily loaded even if the brake pedal is not
being depressed especially hard.
Because speed is often low, the brakes are
not cooled as effectively as when driving on
flat roads at higher speed.
So as not to overload the brakes, shift down
when driving downhill instead of using the
foot brake. Use the same gear driving
downhill as you would use driving uphill. This
using engine braking more efficiently and
requires the foot brake for only brief periods.
WARNING!
If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols
are lit at the same time, a fault may have
occurred in the brake system. If the level in
the brake fluid reservoir is normal, drive
carefully to the nearest authorised Volvo
workshop to have the brake system
checked.
If the brake fluid is under the MIN level in
the brake fluid reservoir, do not drive
further before topping up the brake fluid.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.
Bear in mind that driving with a trailer puts an
additional load on the car’s brakes.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
The ABS system (Anti-lock Braking
System) is designed so that the
wheels do not lock when braking.
This retains the best possible
steering response when braking. This
improves your ability to swerve to avoid
obstacles. The ABS system does not
increase your total braking capacity.
However, as the driver you have increased
ability to steer and thus better control over
the car, which in turn increases safety.
123
Starting and driving
Brake system
After the engine has started and reached a
speed of about 20 km/h, a short self-test can
be both heard and felt. When the ABS
system functions, you can hear and feel
pulses in the brake pedal. This is completely
normal.
NOTE! You must depress the brake pedal
fully to take maximum advantage of the ABS
system. Do not release the pedal when you
hear and feel the ABS pulses. Practice
braking with the ABS system at a suitable
spot such as a track to practice skidding.
The ABS symbol lights up:
• For approximately two seconds during the
system test when the car is started.
• If the ABS system has shut down due to a
fault.
Electronic brake force distribution
system – EBD
The Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
system (EBD) is an integrated part of the
ABS system. The EBD system controls the
brake force to the rear wheels so that the
best possible braking force is always
available. Pulses will be heard and felt
through the brake pedal when the system
regulates brake force.
Emergency Brake Assistance – EBA
The Emergency Brake Assistance function
(EBA) is integrated in the DSTC system and

WARNING!
If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols
are lit at the same time, a fault may have
occurred in the brake system. If the level in
the brake fluid reservoir is normal, drive
carefully to the nearest authorised Volvo
workshop to have the brake system
checked.
If the level of brake fluid in the reservoir is
below the MIN mark, the car should not be
driven until the brake fluid has been
topped up.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.
is designed to provide immediate maximum
brake force whenever rapid braking is
necessary. The system detects the need for
heavier braking by registering how quickly the
brake pedal is applied.
The EBA function is active at all speeds. For
safety reasons, it cannot be switched off.
When the EBA function is activated, the
brake pedal sinks while maximum braking
force is applied. Continue braking without
releasing the brake pedal. The EBA function
disengages when the pressure on the brake
pedal is released.
NOTE! When EBA is activated the brake
pedal lowers slightly more than usual,
depress (hold) the brake pedal as long as
necessary. If the brake pedal is released then
all braking ceases.

General
The Dynamic Stability and Traction Control
system (STC/DSTC) improves the car’s
traction and helps the driver to avoid
skidding.
A pulsing sound may be noticed during
braking and acceleration when the system is
operating. The car may accelerate more
slowly than expected.
The car is equipped with either STC or DSTC
depending on market. The table shows the

Active Yaw Control
The function limits the driving and brake force
of the wheels individually in order to stabilise
the car.
Spin Control
The function prevents the driving wheels from
spinning against the road surface during
acceleration.
Traction control system
The function is active at low speed and
transfers power from the driving wheel that is
spinning to the one that is not.
Reduced operation
System operation during skidding and acceleration can be partially deactivated.
Operation during skidding is delayed and so
allows more skidding which provides greater
freedom for dynamic driving.
Traction in deep snow or sand is improved as
acceleration is no longer limited.
Operation1
– Turn the thumbwheel (1) until the DSTC
menu appears.
DSTC ON means that the system function is

FOUR-C (Active chassis)
Chassis characteristics can be modified at
any time while driving, when the nature of the
road changes or when you desire a change in
driving style. This change occurs in a matter
of milliseconds.
Four-C switch in the centre console (does
not apply to the V70 R)
Active chassis – FOUR-C1
The car is equipped with an extremely
advanced active chassis system – Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept – that is
regulated electronically. The functions of the
system are based on a number of sensors
that continually monitor the car’s movements
and reactions, such as vertical and lateral
acceleration, vehicle speed and wheel
movements.
The Four-C control unit analyses data from
the sensors and performs the necessary
shock absorber setting adjustments up to
500 times per second. This results in
extremely fast and accurate individual shock
absorber control, which contributes to variations in chassis characteristics.
1.
Option for certain markets. Standard
on V70 R.
The effect produced by pressing the accelerator pedal is linked to your choice of
chassis characteristics. (Only applies to Rmodels).
Comfort
Comfort mode adjusts the chassis setting so
that the body is insulated from uneven
sections of the road surface, which allows for
better glide. Shock absorption is softer and
body movements are minimal. This setting is
recommended for long-distance driving or
driving on slippery road surfaces.
When the ignition is switched off in Comfort
setting, the chassis will resume the same
mode when the car is re-started.
Sport
In Sport mode, steering responses are
quicker than in Comfort mode. Damping is
harder and the body follows the road surface
to minimise rolling during quick cornering.
The car feels sportier.
Four-C switch (V70 R)
Advanced2
In Advanced mode, shock absorber
movements are minimal and optimised for
maximum traction. Acceleration response is
more direct, the automatic gearbox shift
schedule is sportier and roll during cornering
is minimised. This setting is recommended
for flat, even road surfaces only.
When the ignition is switched off in
Advanced setting, the chassis will resume the
same mode when the car is re-started.
When the ignition is switched off in Sport
setting, the chassis will resume the same
mode when the car is re-started.

Parking assistance (option)
Function
The system is activated automatically when
the car is started at which point the LED in
the switch for parking assistance illuminates.
The information display shows the text
message PARK ASSIST ACTIVE if reverse
gear is engaged or if the front sensors detect
an object.
Parking assistance is active at speeds below
15 km/h. The system is deactivated at higher
speeds. The system is reactivated when the
speed falls below 10 km/h again.
Parking assistance, front and rear
General
1
Parking assistance is used as an aid to
parking. A signal indicates the distance to a
detected object.
WARNING!
Parking assistance does not relinquish the
driver’s own responsibility during parking.
The sensors have blind spots where
objects cannot be detected. Be aware of
children and animals near the car.
1.
128
Depending on the market, the Parking
assistance system may be either
standard, an option or an accessory.
The frequency of the signal increases as you
come closer to an object in front of or behind
the car. If the volume of another sound source
from the audio system is high, this is automatically muted.
The tone becomes constant at a distance of
about 30 cm. If there are objects within this
distance behind or in front of the car, the
signal alternates between left and right-hand
speakers.
Rear parking assistance
The distance covered to the rear of the car is
about 1.5 m. Rear parking assistance is
activated when reverse gear is engaged. The
signal comes from the rear loudspeakers.
The system must be deactivated when
reversing with a trailer, or bike carrier on the
towbar or similar. Otherwise the trailer or bike
carrier would trigger the sensors.
Rear parking assistance is deactivated
automatically when towing a trailer if a Volvo
genuine trailer cable is used.
Front parking assistance2
The distance covered to the front of the car is
about 0.8 metres. The signal comes from the
front loudspeakers.
Front parking assistance cannot be
combined with extra lights because the
sensors are affected by the extra lights.
Fault indicator
If the yellow warning symbol illuminates and the display shows PARK
ASSIST SERVICE REQUIRED then
parking assistance is disengaged.
WARNING!
Some sources may deceive the system
with false signals. Examples of such
sources include horns, wet tyres on
asphalt, pneumatic brakes and motorcycle
exhaust pipes. Ice and snow covering the
sensors may also cause false warning
signals.

Do not bump start the engine
If you bump start a car with manual gearbox,
the catalytic converter may be damaged.
Cars with automatic gearbox cannot be bump
started. Use a booster battery if the battery is
flat.
If the car must be towed
– Unlock the steering wheel lock so that the
car can be steered.
Keep in mind the highest legally permissible
speed.
Bear in mind that the brake and power
steering servos do not function when the
engine is off. Approx. five times more
pressure must be exerted on the brake pedal
and steering requires much more force than
usual.
– Drive gently.
– Keep the towline taut in order to avoid
unnecessary jerking.
For automatic gearboxes
• The gear selector should be in position N.
• The maximum permissible speed when
towing a car with automatic gearbox is
80 km/h.
• Longest permitted distance: 80 km.
• The engine cannot be towed to start

Start assistance
Starting with a booster battery
If for some reason the battery in your car is
discharged, you can " borrow " current from
a spare battery or another car’s battery to
start the engine. Always check that the
clamps are fastened properly to prevent
sparking during the start attempt.
To avoid the risk of explosion, we recommend
you do exactly as follows.
– Turn the ignition key to position 0.
– Ensure that the other battery is 12 volt.
– If the booster battery is in another car,
stop the engine of that car and make sure
the cars are not touching.
132
– Connect the red cable between the
booster battery positive terminal (1+) and
the red connection in the engine
compartment (2+).
Attach the clamp to the contact point
located beneath a small black cover with
a plus sign which is integrated in the fuse
box cover.
– Connect one clamp of the black cable to
the negative terminal of the booster
battery (3–).
– Connect the other clamp of the black
cable to the lifting eye on your car’s
engine (4–).
– Start the engine of the "donor car". Let
the engine run a few minutes at a speed
slightly higher than idle 1500 rpm.
– Start the engine of the car with the flat
battery.
– Remove the clamps in reverse order.
NOTE! Do not remove the clamps during the
start attempt (risk of spark build-up).
WARNING!
The battery can generate oxyhydrogen
gas, which is highly explosive. One spark,
which can be generated if you connect the
jump leads incorrectly, is sufficient to
make the battery explode.
The battery contains sulphuric acid, which
can cause serious burns. If the acid
comes into contact with eyes, skin or
clothing, flush with large quantities of
water. If acid splashes into the eyes, seek
medical attention immediately.
Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
The towing bracket on the car must be
approved. Your Volvo dealer can advise you
as to which towing bracket to use.
• Distribute the load on the trailer so that
the weight on the towing bracket follows
the specified maximum towball load.
• Increase tyre pressure so that it corresponds to the pressure for full load. See
the tyre pressure table!
• Clean the towing bracket regularly and
grease the towball1 and all moving parts
to prevent unnecessary wear.
• Do not drive with a heavy trailer when
your car is brand new! Wait until it has
driven at least 1000 km.
• The brakes are loaded much more than
usual on long and steep downhill slopes.
Downshift to a lower gear and adjust your
speed.
• If the car is driven with a heavy load in a
hot climate, the engine and gearbox may
overheat. The temperature gauge in the
combined instrument panel goes into the
red zone when the car overheats. Stop
and let the engine idle a few minutes.
• If the car overheats, the air conditioning
system can be temporarily switched off.
1.
• The gearbox reacts with a built-in
protection function if the car overheats.
See the message in the display!
• The engine is loaded more heavily than
usual when driving with a trailer.
• For reasons of safety, you should not
drive faster than 80 km/h, even if the laws
of certain countries permit higher speeds.
• The highest trailer weight permitted for a
trailer without brakes is 750 kg.
• If you park with a trailer, always set the
gear selector to P (automatic gearbox) or
put the car in a gear (manual gearbox). If
you park on a steep hill, put chocks under
the wheels.
• Avoid driving on inclines exceeding 12 %
if the trailer weight exceeds 1200 kg. Do
not drive with a trailer at all on inclines
exceeding 15 %.
WARNING!
Follow the stated recommendations for
trailer weights. Otherwise, the rig may be
difficult to control during evasive
manoeuvres and braking.
Trailer weights
See page 235 for permitted trailer weights.
NOTE! The stated maximum permitted trailer
weights are those permitted by Volvo.
National vehicle regulations can further limit
trailer weights and speeds. Towbars can be
certified for higher towing weights than the
car can actually tow.
Does not apply to ball hitch with
vibration damper.
133
Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
Driving with trailer
– automatic gearbox
• When parking on hills, apply the parking
brake before moving the gear selector to
P. When starting on a hill, first put the
gear selector in drive and then release the
parking brake.
• Select a low gear in the gearbox when
driving on steep inclines or when driving
slowly. This prevents the gearbox from
upshifting if you have an automatic
gearbox. The gearbox oil will be cooler.
• If you have a Geartronic gearbox, do not
use a higher manual gear than the engine
can " handle ". It is not always economical
to drive in high gears.
NOTE! Some models require an oil cooler for
the automatic gearbox when driving with a
trailer. Check with your nearest Volvo dealer
as to what applies to your car if you have a
retrofitted towbar.
134
Levelling
If your car is equipped with automatic
levelling, the rear suspension always retains
the correct ride height regardless of load.
When the car is stationary, the rear
suspension sinks. This is completely normal.
When starting with a load, the level is
pumped up after a certain distance.

Towbars
The towball must be cleaned and greased
regularly. If a towball hitch with vibration
damper is used, it is not necessary to grease
the towball.
If the car is equipped with a detachable

must be followed carefully, see page 137.
NOTE! Always take off the towball section
after use. Keep it in the cargo area.
WARNING!
Be sure to attach the trailer’s safety cable
to the correct place.
WARNING!
If the car is fitted with a Volvo detachable
towbar: follow the assembly instructions
for the towball section carefully. The
towball section must be locked with the
key before setting off. Check that the
indicator window shows green.

Load on the roof
General
The load capacity is affected by extra accessories mounted on the car, such as a towbar,
load carriers, space box, the passengers’
combined weight etc. as well as towball load.
The load capacity of the car is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight. For
information on permitted weights, see
page 235
WARNING!
The car’s driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
Using load carriers (accessory)
To avoid damaging your car and to achieve
the best level of safety when driving, we
recommend that you only use load carriers
that Volvo has specially designed for your
car.
• Remember that the car’s centre of gravity
and driving characteristics change if you
have a load on the roof.
• Keep in mind that the car’s wind
resistance and fuel consumption increase
in proportion to the size of the load.
• Drive gently. Avoid quick accelerations,
heavy braking and taking curves hard.
• Remove the load carrier when it is not in
use. This reduces wind resistance and
fuel consumption.
WARNING!
Load no more than 100 kg on the roof,
inclusive of the load carriers or space box.
The car’s centre of gravity and driving
characteristics are altered by roof loads.
Fitting load carriers
– Make sure the load carrier is placed in the
right direction (see the marking on the
decal under the cover).
• Check periodically that the load carriers
and load are properly secured. Lash the
load securely with retaining straps.
• Distribute the load evenly over the load
carriers. Do not load lopsidedly. Place the
heaviest items at the bottom.
139
Starting and driving
Load on the roof
– Replace the cover.
– Check that the roof rack is properly
secured.
– Check the knobs regularly to see that they
are properly tightened.
– Fit the guide pins into the guide holes (1).
– Carefully lower the bracket on the other
side to the roof.
– Screw the knob up a bit.
– Press the knob against the roof bracket
and catch the hook in the roof bracket
under the roof rail.
– Screw the load carrier in place.
– Fit the guide pins of the other brackets
into the guide holes.
– Screw the load carrier in place.
– Check that the hook is properly secured
in the roof bracket.
– Tighten the knobs alternately until the
carrier feels secure.
140
Load carriers’ location – roof
rails
Make sure that the load carriers are placed
the right way round on the roof rails. The load
carriers can be placed anywhere along the
roof rail.
When driving without a roof load, the front
load carrier should be positioned about
50 mm in front of the centre roof mounting
and the rear load carrier positioned about
35 mm in front of the rear roof mounting (illustrated above). This is to keep wind noise to a
minimum.

BLIS
BLIS is an information system which
indicates whether there is another vehicle
moving in the same direction in the so-called
"blind spot".
WARNING!
The system is a supplement to, and not a
replacement for, the existing rearview
mirrors. It can never replace the
awareness and responsibility of the driver.
The responsibility for changing lanes
safely rests with the driver.
" Blind spots" covered by BLIS
Distance A = approx. 9.5 m
Distance B = approx. 3 m
The system is designed to work most effectively when driving in dense traffic on multilane highways.
BLIS is based on digital camera technology.
The cameras (1) are fitted under the door
mirrors.
When a camera has detected a vehicle inside
the blind spot zone then an indicator lamp is
lit in the door panel (2). The light illuminates
with a constant glow to draw the driver’s
attention to a vehicle in the blind spot.
BLIS also has an integrated function which
warns the driver if a fault should arise in the
system. If, for example, the system’s cameras
are obscured then the BLIS indicator lamp
flashes and a message is shown in the
dashboard display (see the table on
page 149). In such cases, check and clean
the lenses. If necessary, the system can be
switched off temporarily by pressing the BLIS
button (see page 149).
When BLIS operates
The system operates when the car is driven at
a speed above 10 km/h.
When you overtake another vehicle
• The system reacts if you overtake another
vehicle at a speed of up to 10 km/h
faster than the other vehicle.
When you are overtaken by another
vehicle
The system reacts if you are overtaken by a
vehicle travelling up to 70 km/h faster than
you are travelling.
NOTE! The lamp illuminates on the side of
the car where the system has detected the
147
Starting and driving
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) - option
WARNING!
- BLIS does not work in sharp bends.
- BLIS does not work when the car is
reversing.
- A wide trailer coupled to the car can
conceal other vehicles in adjacent lanes. It
can prevent vehicles in the screened area
from being detected by BLIS.
System function in daylight and
darkness
Daylight
In daylight the system reacts to the shape of
the surrounding vehicles. The system is
designed to detect motor vehicles such as
cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles
Darkness
In darkness the system reacts to the
headlamps of surrounding vehicles. If its
headlamps are not switched on then the
system does not detect the vehicle. This
means for example that the system does not
react to a trailer without headlamps which is
towed behind a car or truck.
148
WARNING!
- The system does not react to bicycles or
mopeds.
- The BLIS cameras can be disrupted by
intensive light or when driving in the dark
when there are no light sources (e.g.
street lighting or other vehicles). The
system may then interpret the lack of light
as if the cameras have been blocked.
In both cases a message is shown on the
information display.
When driving in such conditions system
performance may be temporarily reduced
(see the information on the next page).
When the text message disappears the
system returns to full functionality.
- The BLIS cameras have the same limitations as the human eye, i.e. they "see"
worse in heavy snowfall or thick fog for
example.
Cleaning
In order to work most effectively the BLIS
camera lenses must be clean. The lenses can
be cleaned with a soft cloth or damp sponge.
Clean the lenses carefully so that they are not
scratched.
IMPORTANT!
- The lenses are electrically heated to
melt ice or snow. If necessary, brush
snow away from the lenses.

General
Driving characteristics and tyres
The tyres greatly affect the car’s driving
characteristics. The type of tyre, dimensions,
tyre pressure and speed rating are important
for how the car performs.
When changing tyres, ensure that tyres of the
same type and dimensions, and preferably
also the same make, are fitted to all four
wheels. Follow the recommended tyre
pressures specified on the tyre pressure
label, see page 155.
Designation of dimensions
The dimensions are stated on all car tyres.
Example: 205/55R16 91 W.

Tyre load index (in this case 615 kg)
Speed rating

Speed ratings
The car is approved as a whole, which means
that dimensions and speed ratings must not
differ from those specified on the vehicle’s
registration document. The only exception to
these conditions is winter tyres (both those
with studs and those without). If such a tyre is
152
chosen, the car must not be driven faster than
the speed rating of the tyre (for example,
class Q can be driven at a maximum of
160 km/h).
Remember that traffic regulations determine
how fast a car can be driven, not the speed
class of the tyres.
Note! Maximum permitted speeds indicated.

New tyres
Tyres are perishable. After a
few years they begin to
harden at the same time as
the friction capacity/characteristics gradually deteriorate. Therefore aim to get
as fresh tyres as possible when you replace
them. This is especially important with regard
to winter tyres. The week and year of
manufacture, the tyre’s DOT marking
(Department of Transportation), are stated
with four digits, for example 1502. The tyre in
the illustration was manufactured in week 15
of 2002.
Tyre age
All tyres older than six years should be
checked by an expert even if they seem
undamaged. The reason for this is that tyres
age and decompose, even if they are hardly
ever or never used. The function can
therefore be affected due to the tyre’s
constituent materials being broken down,
and it should then not be used.
This also applies to spare tyres, winter tyres
and tyres saved for future use.
Examples of external signs which indicate
that the tyre is unsuitable for use are cracks
or discoloration.
The age of the tyre can be determined by the
DOT marking, see illustration above.
Wheels and tyres
General
More even wear and maintenance
The correct tyre pressure results in more
even wear, see page 156. To achieve the
best traction and more even wear on the
tyres, the regular switching of the front and
rear tyres with each other is recommended.
The first change should be after 5 000 km
and then at intervals of 10 000 km, this is to
avoid differences in tread depth. Tyres with
the greatest tread depth should always be
fitted to the rear wheels to decrease the risk
of skidding. Contact an authorised Volvo
workshop if you are uncertain about tread
depth.
Wheels should be stored lying down or
hanging up, and not standing up.
WARNING!
A damaged tyre can lead to loss of control
of the car.
Tyres with tread wear indicators
Tread wear indicators are
narrow treadless bands
across the width of the
tread. On the side of the tyre
are the letters TWI (Tread
Wear Indicator). When the
tyre’s tread depth is down to 1.6 mm, the
tread depth will be level in height with the
tread wear indicators. Change to new tyres
as soon as possible. Remember that tyres
with little tread depth provide very poor grip
in rain and snow.
Winter tyres
Volvo recommends winter tyres with
particular dimensions. These are stated on
the tyre pressure label, see page 155 for its
location. The tyre dimensions are dependent
on the engine variant. When driving on winter
tyres, these must be fitted to all four wheels.
NOTE! Ask a Volvo dealer which rim and tyre
types are most suitable.
Studded tyres
Studded winter tyres should be run in gently
for 500-1000 km so the studs settle properly
into the tyre. This gives the tyre, and
especially the studs, a longer lifespan.
NOTE! The legal provisions for the use of
studded tyres vary from country to country.
Tread depth
Road conditions with ice, slush and low
temperatures place considerably higher
demands on tyres than summer conditions. It
is therefore not recommended to drive on
winter tyres that have a tread depth of less
than four millimetres.
Snow chains
Snow chains may only be used on the front
wheels. This also applies to all-wheel-drive
cars.
Never drive faster than 50 km/h with snow
chains. Avoid driving on bare ground as this
wears out both the snow chains and tyres.
Never use quick-fit snow chains as the space
between the brake disks and the wheels is
too small.
IMPORTANT!
Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent chains designed for the car model,
and tyre and rim dimensions. Consult an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Locking wheel bolts
Locking wheel bolts can be used on both
aluminium and steel rims. If steel rims with
locking wheel bolts are used in combination
with wheel covers then the locking wheel
bolts must be fitted furthest from the air valve.
Otherwise the wheel cover cannot be fitted
on the rim.
153
Wheels and tyres
General
adversely affected. Tyres with the greatest
tread depth should always be fitted to the
rear of the car (to decrease the risk of
skidding.)
Wheels should be stored lying down or
hanging up, and not standing up.
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop if you
are uncertain about tread depth.
The arrow shows the tyre’s direction of
rotation.
Summer and winter wheels
When summer and winter wheels are
changed they should be marked with which
side of the car they were mounted on, for
example L for left and R for right. Tyres with a
tread pattern which are designed to only turn
in one direction have the direction of rotation
marked with an arrow. The tyre should always
rotate in the same direction throughout its
lifespan. Tyres should only be switched
between front and rear positions, never
between left and right-hand sides, or vice
versa. If the tyre is mounted incorrectly, the
car’s braking characteristics and capacity to
force rain, snow and slush out of the way are
154
Wheels and tyres
Tyre pressure
Checking the tyre pressure
Check the tyre pressure regularly.
NOTE! Tyre pressure decreases over time,
this is a natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure
also varies depending on ambient temperature.
The correct tyre pressure is specified in the
tyre pressure table. The specified tyre
pressures refer to "cold tyres". ("Cold tyres"
means the tyres are the same temperature as
the ambient temperature.)
Recommended tyre pressure
The tyre pressure decal on the driver’s side
door pillar (between frame and rear door)
shows which pressures the tyres should have
at different loads and speed conditions.
Stated on the decal:
• Tyre pressure for the car’s recommended
wheel size
• ECO pressure
• Spare wheel pressure (Temporary Spare).
Even after several few kilometres of driving
the tyres warm up and the pressure
increases, so air must not be released if the
pressure is checked when the tyres are
warm, while the pressure must be increased
if it is too low. Inadequately inflated tyres
adversely affect fuel consumption, tyre
lifespan and the car’s roadholding. Driving on
tyres with tyre pressure that is too low can
also result in the tyres overheating and disintegrating. For information on the correct tyre
pressure, refer to the tyre pressure table on
page 156.
Fuel economy, ECO pressure
At speeds under 160 km/h, the general tyre
pressure for full load is recommended in
order to obtain optimum fuel economy.
Tyre pressure affects travelling comfort, road
noise and steering characteristics.

Wheels and tyres
Tyre pressure monitoring (option)
Tyre pressure monitoring, TPMS (Tyre
Pressure Monitoring System) warns the
driver when the pressure is too low in one or
more of the car’s tyres. It uses sensors
located inside the air valve in each wheel.
When the car is driven at
approximately 40 km/h the system detects
the tyre pressure. If the pressure is too low
then a warning lamp on the dashboard illuminates and a message is shown in the information display.
Always check the system after changing a
wheel in order to ensure that replacement
wheels work with the system.
For information on correct tyre pressure, see
page 155 –156.
NOTE! The TPMS system does not replace
normal tyre maintenance.
IMPORTANT!
If a fault should arise in the tyre pressure
system a warning lamp on the dashboard
will illuminate. The message TYRE
PRESS. SYST SERVICE REQUIRED will
be shown. This can be for various
reasons, e.g. fitting a wheel not equipped
with a sensor adapted for Volvo’s tyre
pressure monitoring system.
Adjusting tyre pressure monitoring
Tyre pressure monitoring can be adjusted in
order to follow Volvo’s tyre pressure recommendations, when driving with a heavy load
for example.
NOTE! The engine must not be running.
– Inflate the tyres to the required pressure.
– Select key position I or II.
– Turn the thumbwheel on the left-hand
stalk switch until the text TYRE
PRESSURE CALIBRATION is shown in
the information display.
– Press and hold the RESET button until
the text TYRE PRESSURE CALIBRATED
is shown.
Rectifying low tyre pressure
When the message LOW TYRE PRESS.
CHECK TYRES is shown in the information
display:
– Check the tyre pressure in all four tyres.
– Inflate the tyre(s) to the correct pressure.
– Drive the car for at least 1 minute in total
at at least 40 km/h and check that the
message disappears.
Deactivating tyre pressure monitoring
NOTE! The engine must not be running.
– Key position I or II.
– Turn the thumbwheel on the left-hand
stalk switch until the text TYRE PRESS.

To reactivate the system repeat the same
steps 1 –3, so that TYRE PRESS. SYST ON
is shown in the information display.
Recommendations
Only factory fitted wheels are equipped with
TPMS sensors in the valves.
• The temporary spare wheel does not have
this sensor.
• If wheels without TPMS sensors are used
then TYRE PRESS. SYST SERVICE
REQUIRED will be shown every time the
car is driven faster than 40 km/h for more
than 10 minutes.
• Volvo recommends that TPMS sensors
are fitted to all wheels on the car (summer
and winter wheels).
• Volvo recommends that sensors are not
moved between different wheels.
WARNING!
When inflating a tyre equipped with
TPMS, hold the nozzle of the pump
directly against the valve to avoid
damaging the valve.

Driveable punctured tyres
(option)
If Self Supporting run flat Tyres (SST) are
specified then the car is also equipped with
TPMS.
This type of tyre has a specially reinforced
side wall that makes continued driving
possible despite the tyre losing some air.
These tyres are fitted on a special rim.
(Normal tyres can also be fitted to this rim)
If an SST tyre loses tyre pressure then the
yellow TPMS lamp on the instrument panel
illuminates and a message is shown in the
text panel. If this occurs, reduce speed to
max. 80 km/h. The tyre must be replaced as
soon as possible.
Drive carefully, in some cases it can be
difficult to see which tyre is faulty. In order to
establish which tyre needs attention, check
all four tyres.
160
WARNING!
• SST tyres should only be fitted by
individuals with expertise on SST tyres.
• SST tyres must only be fitted together
with TPMS.
• After a fault message on low tyre
pressure has been shown, do not drive
faster than 80 km/h.
• Maximum driving distance to tyre
change is 80 km.
• Avoid hard driving.
• SST tyres must be replaced if they are
damaged or punctured.

Changing wheels
Removing wheels
Remember to set out the warning triangle if
you must change a wheel in a trafficked area.
The spare wheel is under the plastic trough in
the cargo area.
– Apply the parking brake and engage 1st
gear if the car has a manual gearbox – P if
it has automatic gearbox. Place chocks on
either side the wheels remaining on the
ground; use heavy wooden blocks or
large stones.
– Cars with steel wheel rims have
removable wheel covers. Prize off the
wheel cover with a thick screwdriver or
similar. If tools are not available, the wheel
cover can be prized off by hand. Use
protective gloves. When refitting the
wheel cover, make sure the cover is
properly aligned over the air valve.
– Loosen the wheel bolts 1/2-1 with the
socket wrench. Loosen the nuts by
turning them anticlockwise.
– There are two jacking points on each side
of the car. Hold the jack against the pin in
the jacking point as illustrated and crank
the foot of the jack down so it is pressed
squarely on the ground. Check that the
jack sits in the anchorage as illustrated
and that the foot is positioned vertically
under the anchorage.
– Lift the car so that the wheel is free.
Remove the wheel nuts and lift off the
wheel.

Cleaning
Washing the car
Wash the car as soon as it becomes dirty,
especially in the winter when road salt and
moisture can lead to corrosion.
Wash the car as follows:
• Do not park the car in direct sunshine.
Washing a car with hot paintwork can
cause permanent paintwork damage.
Wash the car in a car wash with waste
water separator.
• Thoroughly rinse dirt off the underbody of
the car.
• Rinse the entire car to remove loose dirt.
When using a high-pressure washer,
make sure that its nozzle is not closer
than 30 cm to the bodywork. Do not
spray directly at the locks.
• Wash with a sponge using a lot of water
with or without detergent.
• Use warm water (max. 35 °C), not water
that is too hot.
• If the dirt is ingrained, you can wash the
car with cold degreasing agent, but be
sure that there is a waste water separator
where you are washing the car. When
using cold degreasing agent, make sure
that the car is not in direct sunlight and
that the paint is not warm due to sunlight
164
or a warm engine. Sunlight and heat can
cause permanent damage. Consult a
Volvo workshop.
• Dry the car with a clean, soft chamois.
• Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
soap solution.
NOTE! Outside lighting such as headlamps,
fog lamps and rear lamps may temporarily
have condensation on the inside of the lens.
This is a natural phenomenon, all outside
lighting is designed to withstand this.
Condensation is normally vented out of the
lamp when it has been switched on for a
time.
Suitable detergent:
Car shampoo.
Keep the following in mind:
– Always remove bird droppings from the
paintwork as soon as possible. Bird
droppings contain chemicals that can
affect and discolour paintwork very
quickly. Discoloration cannot be removed
with polish.
IMPORTANT!
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage
the fabric upholstery.
WARNING!
Do not wash the engine while it is warm.
Risk of fire! Entrust engine washing to an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Automatic car washes
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick
way of washing the car. Bear in mind,
however, that an automatic car wash can
never replace a proper handwashing – the
brushes of a car wash cannot reach everywhere.
IMPORTANT!
Washing by hand is gentler to the
paintwork than an automatic car wash.
The paintwork is also more sensitive
when it is new. For this reason,
handwashing is recommended during the
first few months with a new car.
Exterior plastic parts
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning
exterior plastic parts. Never use strong stain
removers.
Car care
Cleaning
WARNING!
After washing: always test the brakes so
that moisture and corrosion do not affect
the brake lining and impair the brakes!
Lightly depress the brake pedal now and
then when driving long distances in rain or
slush so that the brake lining warms and
dries. You should also do this when you
begin driving after damp or cold weather.
Cleaning the interior
Treating stains on fabric upholstery
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning the
fabric upholstery. Other chemicals can impair
the fire retardant qualities of the upholstery.
IMPORTANT!
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage
the fabric upholstery.
Treating stains on leather upholstery
Volvo's leather upholstery is equipped with
surface protection against dirt. Cleaning reprotects the leather but grease and dirt
dissolves the surface protection. There is a
comprehensive programme for the care and
maintenance of leather upholstery. Volvo
offers a leather product for cleaning and
treating the upholstery by which means the
leather regains its protective layer.
IMPORTANT!
Never use strong solvents. Such
products may damage fabric, vinyl and
leather upholstery.
IMPORTANT!
Note that materials with colour that runs
when dry (new jeans, suede garments
etc.) may discolour the upholstery
material.
To achieve best results Volvo recommends
cleaning and application of the protective
cream two to four times per year.
Ask your Volvo dealer about Volvo’s Leather
care product
Washing instructions for leather upholstery
– Pour the leather cleaner on the
dampened sponge and squeeze out a
strong foam.
– Work the dirt away with gentle circular
movements.
– Dab the sponge accurately on the stains.
Allow the sponge to absorb the stain. Do
not rub.
– Wipe off with soft paper or a cloth and
allow the leather to dry completely.
Protective treatment of leather upholstery
– Pour a small amount of the protective
cream on the felted cloth and massage in
a thin layer of cream with gentle circular
movements on the leather.
– Now allow the leather to dry for
20 minutes before use.
The leather has now been given improved
protection against stains and a UV filter.
Treating stains on interior plastic parts
and surfaces
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning interior
plastic parts and surfaces. Do not scrape or
rub stains. Never use strong stain removers.
Cleaning seatbelts
Use water and a synthetic detergent. A
special textile cleaning agent is available from
Volvo dealers. Make sure the seatbelt is dry
before allowing it to retract.
Polishing and waxing
Polish and wax the car when you feel the

Car care
Cleaning
The car does not usually need polishing until
after one year. It can be waxed earlier.
Take care when cleaning so as not to
damage the glass surface.
Wash and dry the car thoroughly before you
begin polishing and/or waxing. Clean of
asphalt and tar stains with white spirit. More
stubborn marks can be removed with fine
rubbing paste designed for paintwork. Polish
first with a polish and then wax with fluid or
solid wax. Carefully follow the instructions on
the package. Many preparations contain both
polish and wax.
To avoid damaging glass surfaces when
removing ice, – only use plastic ice scrapers.
Do not polish or wax surfaces warmer than
45 °C.
IMPORTANT!
Paint treatment such as preserving,
sealing, protection, lustre sealing or
similar could damage the paintwork.
Paintwork damage caused by such
treatment is not covered by the Volvo
warranty.
Cleaning door mirrors and front
door windows with waterrepellent coating (option)
Never use products such as car wax,
degreaser or similar on mirror/glass surfaces
as this could ruin their water-repellent
properties.
166
There is natural wear of the water-repellent
coating.
NOTE! Treatment with a special finishing
agent available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the waterrepellent properties. This should be used first
after three years and then each year.
Car care
Touching up paintwork
Paintwork
Paint is an important part of the car’s
rustproofing and should therefore be
checked regularly. Repair paintwork damage
immediately so that it does not start to rust.
The most common types of paintwork
damage that you can repair yourself are:
• Minor stone chips and scratches.
• Damage to wing edges and doors.
When repairing paintwork, the car should be
clean and dry with a temperature above
+15 °C.
Colour code
Make sure you have the right colour. The
colour code number (1) is on the data plate in
the engine compartment.
Remove any paint residue with tape.
Mask if necessary.

Data plate
Primer in a can
Paint in a can or a touch-up pen
Brush
Masking tape
If the stone chip has not gone down to
the bare metal and an unpainted colour
coat remains, you can add paint immediately after removing dirt.
Do as follows if the stone chip went
down to the bare metal:
– Fasten a piece of masking tape over the
damaged surface. Then remove the tape,
removing any paint residue (illustration 1).
– Stir the primer thoroughly and apply using
a fine brush or matchstick (illustration 2).
– When the primer is dry, apply the surface
coat with a brush.
– Make sure the paint is well stirred and
apply several thin coats; allowing it to dry
between coats.
– The procedure is the same for scratches,
but masking tape can be used to protect
undamaged paintwork (illustration 3).
– Wait a day or so and then finish the repair
by polishing. Use a soft rag and apply
lapping paste sparingly.
167
Car care
Rustproofing
Rustproofing – check and repair
Your car received a thorough and complete
rustproofing at the factory. Parts of the body
are made of galvanised sheet metal. The
underbody is protected by a wear-resistant
anti-corrosion compound. Members, cavities
and enclosed sections are sprayed with a
thin, penetrating rust inhibitor.
The car’s rustproofing is maintained by doing
the following:
• Keep the car clean! Hose down the
underbody. During high pressure washing
- hold the nozzle at least 30 cm from
painted surfaces!
• Check and repair the rustproofing
regularly.
The car’s rustproofing does not normally
require treatment for approximately 8 years.
After that time, it should be treated at three
year intervals. If your car requires treatment,
consult an authorised Volvo workshop for
assistance.
Repair
If you want to repair the rustproofing yourself,
make sure the area is clean and dry. Hose
down, wash and dry the car thoroughly. Use
a rustproofing agent in a spray can or one
that is intended for brush application.
168
There are two different types of rustproofing
agents:
• Thin (colourless), for visible areas.
• Thick, for areas prone to wear on the
underbody.
Possible repair areas with these agents:
• Visible welds and sheet metal joints - thin
fluid
• Underbody - thick fluid
• Door hinges - thin fluid
• Bonnet hinges and catch - thin fluid
Once you have finished treatment, excess
rustproofing can be wiped off with a rag
dipped in a recommended cleaning agent.
Parts of the engine and suspension strut
mountings in the engine compartment are
treated at the factory with a wax-based,
colourless rustproofing. This withstands
normal detergents without dissolving and
losing its rustproofing ability.
If you wash the engine using aromatic
solvents, such as turpentine or white spirit
(especially those that do not contain emulsifiers), the protective wax should be renewed
after washing. Your Volvo dealer supplies
such waxes.

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

Diesel
Fuel system
Diesel must fulfil the EN 590 or JIS K2204
standards. Diesel engines are sensitive to
contaminants, such as high volumes of
sulphur particles for example. Only use diesel
fuel from a well-known producers. Never use
diesel of dubious quality.
At low temperatures (–40 °C to –6 °C), a
paraffin precipitate may form in the diesel
fuel, which can lead to ignition problems.
Special diesel fuel designed for low temperatures around freezing point is available from
the major oil companies. This fuel is less
viscous at low temperatures and reduces the
risk of paraffin precipitate
The risk of condensation in the fuel tank is
reduced if the tank is kept well filled. When
refuelling, check that the area around the fuel
filler pipe is clean. Avoid spilling fuel onto the
paintwork. Wash off any spillage with
detergent and water.
IMPORTANT!
Diesel type fuels which must not be used:
special additives, Marine Diesel Fuel, fuel
oil, RME (Rape Methyl Ester) and
vegetable oil. These fuels do not fulfil the
requirements in accordance with Volvo
recommendations and generate
increased wear and engine damage that
is not covered by the Volvo warranty.
IMPORTANT!
For model year 2006 or later the sulphur
content must be a maximum of 50 ppm.
Empty tank
No special procedures are required if the
tank is run dry. The fuel system is bled
automatically if the ignition switch is kept in
position II for approx. 60 seconds before the
start attempt.
Draining condensation from the
fuel filter
The fuel filter separates condensation from
the fuel. Condensation can disrupt engine
operation.
174
The fuel filter must be drained at the intervals
specified in the Service and Warranty
Booklet or if you suspect that the car has
been filled with contaminated fuel.
IMPORTANT!
Certain special additives remove the
water separation in the fuel filter.

This may result in abnormally high oil temperature or oil consumption.
IMPORTANT!
In order to fulfil the requirements for the
engine’s service intervals all engines are
filled with a specially adapted synthetic
engine oil at the factory. The choice of oil
has been made very carefully with regard
to service life, starting characteristics,
fuel consumption and environmental
impact. An approved engine oil must be
used in order that the recommended
service intervals can be applied. Only use
a prescribed grade of oil (see the engine
compartment decal) for both filling and oil
change, otherwise you will risk affecting
service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact.
Volvo Car Corporation disclaims all
warranty liability if engine oil of the
prescribed grade and viscosity is not
used.
Volvo uses different systems for warning of
low oil level or low oil pressure. Certain
175
Maintenance and service
Oils and fluids
variants have an oil pressure sensor, and then
a lamp is used for oil pressure. Other variants
have an oil level sensor, and then the driver is
informed via the warning symbol in the centre
of the instrument unit as well as by display
texts. Certain models have both variants.
Contact an authorised Volvo dealer for more
information.
– Wipe the dipstick clean before checking
the level.
– Check the oil level using the dipstick. The
oil level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks.
– If the level is close to the MIN mark, start
by topping up with 0.5 litres of oil. Top up
until the oil level is nearer the MAX than
the MIN mark on the dipstick. See
page 239 for capacities.
Checking the oil level in a new car is
especially important before the first
scheduled oil change. The Service and
Warranty Booklet specifies the odometer
readings for oil changes.
Volvo recommends checking the oil level
every 2500 km. The most accurate measurements are made on a cold engine before
starting. The measurement will be inaccurate
if taken immediately after the engine is
switched off. The dipstick will indicate that
the level is too low because the oil has not
had time to flow down into the oil sump.
176
IMPORTANT!
The oil level must be within the area marked
on the dipstick
Checking the oil in a cold engine:
– Wipe the dipstick clean before checking
the level.
– Check the oil level using the dipstick. The
oil level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks.
– If the level is close to the MIN mark, start
by topping up with 0.5 litres of oil. Top up
until the oil level is nearer the MAX than
the MIN mark on the dipstick. See
page 239 for capacities.
Checking the oil in a warm engine:
– Park the car on a level surface, switch off
the engine and wait 10-15 minutes to
allow the oil time to run back to the sump.
Never fill above the MAX mark. Oil
consumption may increase if too much oil
is poured into the engine.
WARNING!
Do not spill oil onto the hot exhaust
manifold due to the risk of fire.

When topping up the coolant, follow the
instructions on the packaging. It is important
that the mixture of coolant concentrate and
water is correct for the prevailing weather
conditions. Never top up with water only. The
risk of freezing increases with both too little
and too much coolant concentrate.
The engine must only be run with a wellfilled cooling system. High temperatures
can occur, causing a risk of damage
(cracks) to the cylinder head.
WARNING!
The coolant may be very hot. If the coolant
requires topping up when the engine is at
operating temperature, unscrew the

Maintenance and service
Battery
There may be two different types of battery. They are fully interchangeable with each other.
Battery care
The service life and function of the battery is
influenced by factors such as the number of
starts, discharging, driving style, driving
conditions and climatic conditions.
IMPORTANT!
Always use distilled or deionised water
(battery water).
NOTE! An expended battery must be
recycled in an environmentally responsible
manner as it contains lead.
180
For the battery to function satisfactorily,
consider the following:
• Regularly check that the electrolyte level
in the battery is correct (A) and never fill
above the level mark.
• Check all cells. Use a screwdriver to
remove the cell caps (or the cover).
• If necessary, top up with distilled water to
the battery’s maximum mark.
• Refit the cell caps (or the cover) firmly.
NOTE! The life of the battery is shortened if it
becomes discharged repeatedly.
WARNING!
Batteries can generate oxyhydrogen gas,
which is highly explosive. A spark, which
can be generated if you connect the jump
leads incorrectly, is sufficient to make the
battery explode. The battery also contains
sulphuric acid, which can cause serious
burns. If the acid comes into contact with
eyes, skin or clothing, flush with large
quantities of water. If acid splashes into
the eyes, seek medical advice immediately.

Maintenance and service
Fuses
Cable routing may vary slightly due to engine variant. However, the components listed are in the same positions.
All electrical functions and components are
fused to protect your car’s electrical system
from damage by short circuiting and
overloading.
Fuses are housed in four different locations in
the car:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Relay/fuse box in the engine
compartment.
Fuse box in the passenger compartment
within the sound barrier on the driver’s
side.
Fuse box in passenger compartment at
the end face of the dashboard on the
driver’s side.
Fuse box in cargo area.
Changing
If an electrical component or function does
not work, this may be because the
component’s fuse was temporarily
overloaded and blew.
If the same fuse blows repeatedly, there is a
fault in the component. Contact an
authorised Volvo workshop to have it
checked.
– Look in the fuse diagram to locate the
fuse.
– Pull out the fuse and check from the side
to see whether the curved wire has
blown.
– If this is the case, replace it with a new
fuse of the same colour and amperage.
There are a number of spare fuses in the
cover on the end face of the dashboard.
There are also pliers which facilitate the
removal and fitting of fuses.

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

Adverse driving conditions
Check the oil level more frequently for long
journeys:
•
•
•
•
towing a caravan or trailer.
in mountainous regions.
at high speeds.
in temperatures colder than -30 °C or
hotter than +40 °C.
• shorter driving distances (shorter than
10 km) at low temperatures (under 5 °C).
This may result in abnormally high oil temperature or oil consumption.
Choose a fully synthetic engine oil for
adverse driving conditions. It provides extra
protection for the engine.
Volvo recommends
238
oil products.
WARNING!
In order to fulfil the requirements for the
engine’s service intervals all engines are
filled with a specially adapted synthetic
engine oil at the factory. The choice of oil
has been made very carefully with regard
to service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact.
An approved engine oil must be used in
order that the recommended service
intervals can be applied. Only use a
prescribed grade of oil (see the engine
compartment decal) for both filling and oil
change, otherwise you will risk affecting
service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact.
Volvo Car Corporation disclaims all
warranty liability if engine oil of the
prescribed grade and viscosity is not
used.

Fuel consumption and emissions
of carbon dioxide
Official fuel consumption figures are based
on a standard driving cycle in accordance
with EU Directive 80/1268 comb. Fuel
consumption figures may change if the car is
equipped with extra equipment that affects
the car’s weight. The manner in which the car
is driven and other non-technical factors can
also affect fuel consumption. Consumption is
higher and power output lower for fuel with
an octane rating of 91 RON.
Petrol
Diesel
Most engines can be run with octane ratings
of 91, 95 and 98 RON.
The diesel engine’s fuel system is sensitive to
contaminants, see page 174.
• 91 RON must not be used for 4-cylinder
engines and should only be used in
exceptional cases with other engines.
• 95 RON can be used for normal driving.
• 98 RON is recommended for optimum
performance and minimum fuel
consumption.
When driving in temperatures above +38 ºC,
it is recommended to use fuel with the
highest possible octane rating for optimum
performance and fuel economy.
Petrol:
Standard EN 228.
IMPORTANT!
Always refuel with unleaded petrol so as
not to damage the catalytic converter.
In order that Volvo’s warranty shall remain
valid, never mix alcohol with petrol, as the
fuel system could be damaged.
244
Technical data
Catalytic converter
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve
fuel economy.
General
An oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen
content of the exhaust gases leaving the
engine. This value is fed into an electronic
system that continuously controls the
injectors. The ratio of air to fuel is continuously adjusted. These adjustments create
optimal conditions for efficient combustion,
and together with the three-way catalytic
converter reduce harmful emissions (hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrous
oxides).
The purpose of the catalytic converter is to
purify exhaust gases. It is located in the flow
of exhaust gasses close to the engine so that
it quickly reaches operating temperature.
The catalytic converter consists of a monolith
(ceramic or metal) with channels. The
channel walls are lined with platinum/
rhodium/palladium. These metals act as
catalysts, i.e. they participate in and accelerate a chemical reaction without being used
up themselves.
