      Makes sense. Also makes sense that noise cancelling tires negate this possibility? Note to self: don't buy noise cancelling tires...kind of like the AUX battery for A/S/S once it wears out...

      Great post mattlatch. Guess my 12-year old '08 C30 isn't as safe--relatively--to most other new cars on the road. I'll stick to the avoidance strategy and hopefully never find out!

      The Covercraft custom covers fit great, but you'll pay dearly (have one for the C30 now). The BUDGE-t covers that fit ranges of vehicles seem to ALWAYS come in baggy and huge--matter of fact a...

      Anyone used/using Vogue tires?

      Never heard of Vogue tires, but guess they've been around for a while. US company. Good reviews on Discount tire, so I ordered replacements ($110 each) for my 6 year old OEM Contis on the V60. ...

      Mine--so far--work just fine whether it be in light rain or our summertime torrential squalls. Turn on and forget.

      It is a seven digit number and the TSB for the rings affects those up to the 150xxxx-serial numbers, so probably is. Forgot where I found mine, but believe it was in my paperwork somewhere. Mine is...

      I'll expand a bit on my post above.

      Have been through a few mid-level Empire/Budge car covers and they do the job well, although hit or miss on the fit. Have got the ones with the built in tie...

      Wouldn't worry about the beta A/S/S working forever; your support battery (unless you use a charger on your main faithfully) should lose enough voltage to keep it from working.

      Dealer told me I...

      Have had car covers on both my cars (only room for one in the garage at a time) and they are scratch free, so far. Best to tie them down good when the winds pick up--that's probably when you can get...

      Just to clarify, there's a bluetooth option that not all C30s had; the globbed on things plug into the AUX.

      Miami Shine is the best stuff I've ever used, but don't have a black car and they are notoriously difficult. Have a buddy with a black Audi and a black Forerunner and he also swears by Miami Shine.

      Your trip sounded cool, thanks for posting. Love the stories about the cold; I spent two winters in North Dakota, so I've got the t-shirt. Bunny boots, nothing warmer and you don't even need wool...

      My interpretation of auto braking (on my '15) is that it won't engage if you are riding the brakes. Will it engage while braking on newer Volvos?

      I'd think you'd have to have absolutely full charges for A/S/S to work for 5 minutes--longest light I have is 3 minutes and, if the weather is cool, that's the longest I ever got mine to work--back...

      Volvo thanks everyone for the continued beta testing of the A/S/S.

      And I've seen results (measuring voltage with an OBD app) as sebynum states--the support battery will trickle charge from the...

      Slightly off-topic, but one thing that bugs me about AUTO is it will go out of that mode if I switch vents to windows, like if it's raining in steamy FL in the humid season and I want to ensure the...

      Yes, I'd agree it is a ground issue with the AUX and hearing folks over the years try and isolate it (rocket surgery) leads me to just live with it. When AUX is needed I'm bluetoothing and it works...

      I know some of the 2015 models had plugs that cracked and were replaced--wonder if the replacement plugs are/have proven to be more durable?

      I've seen it a couple times on my V60 when sitting after a drive, car off, music playing for a while while I dallied. Chocked it up to a fussy system, as that's the only time it's ever happened.
