      On our 2015, I went to do the install but got the message for the key. Volvo says that the only way to do the install is go to the dealer. Too bad the link didn't just outright say that.

      It's an emissions check to be sure the fuel system is holding pressure. No worries.

      V90cc t8?

      Has there been any talk of a T8 version for the Cross Country version? I know that there was an earlier thread about a V90 T8 but the thought was that there was too little volume to justify it in...

      Even though you're 11 years old than I am, you must be a lot more flexible. I find getting into our V60 is getting to be something of a chore due to the height of the top of the door opening. Since...

      This was happening repeatedly with our V60. Several trips and dealers before one found that the early build 2015 V60s had an issue with the module that controlled the keyless unlocking. After two...

      Yes, that part works fine. When I pull the driver's door handle, the door unlocks as expected but none of the other ones do which irritates my wife no end.

      Door unlocking

      I have "all" selected for door unlocking in the settings section but when I open the car doors to get in, only the driver's door unlocks. What am I missing?

      80 cents a gallon more here. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the importance of using top tier fuel with the additional additives that the top tier designation requires.

      Delay headlights

      Is there a way to have the headlights delay shutting off after the ignition is turned off on a 2015 V60? I've poked through Sensus but can't find anywhere to set the time if there is one.
