      Have not seen it.

      Can you post a web link or other info?

      Thank you, I'm in the same boat. I hate the feature, my wife doesn't even notice it.

      Per your suggestion it's best to ignore those who are unwilling to contribute. Let's push ahead and solve...

      I change the oil every 5k miles on all our vehicles. For XC90 DIY, see link in my signature. It can be very inexpensive, synthetic oil is available for as low as $12 for a 5qt jug. (Costco)

      Once...

      It's ok with it. I'll switch to Audi/BMW or any other surviving auto maker that still offers an ICE engine. I'm not looking forward to the autonomous electric cars of the future.

      I'll say it plainly: I don't care ONE BIT about the carbon dioxide emissions. CO2 is not a poison, despite all the dire warnings. Plants eat it for food! (I'll plant another bush next spring to make...

      Why does polestar need to be enabled? Isn't it just on by default once the software is flashed?

      By the way I have a hunch this start/stop 'feature' (ie. bug) can be defeated if someone is able to scope what comes out of the factory radio/computer module. Do the signals end up on the vehicle CAN...

      So many reasons I can think of:
      - It's inconvenient
      - It's annoying
      - Newer cars have the capability of turning it off
      - It's overly sensitive
      - I don't want it
      - I'm willing to pay for the...

      It's because you drive short distances. Road trip = one tank of gas each way, at least. Then you'll see 25MPG or better.

      We had the same thing happen with our Honda Pilot. Bought it CPO, looked great. A while later the clearcoat started to peel from the front bumper, it became obvious the car had been in a minor fender...

      Yeah I'd vote for a big USA vehicle if driving Uber/Lyft. The XC90 is a nice grocery-getter for the wife but not really a passenger hauler. It's cramped in comparison to a Tahoe/Yukon/Suburban.

      There's absolutely nothing I'm going to be able to do for someone at 5am when the situation is in a city 5 hours away. It's a ridiculous system.
      Those big LED signs at the side of the road are a...

      I say go for it, you already know to avoid the early years. How you use the car has nothing to do with the warranty. Just keep up with scheduled maintenance.

      We haven't had a single problem with...

      Not excited. The only warning I'm interested in is "Speed Trap Ahead!"

      Pet peeve: Those Amber Alerts in my phone ("Beige Camry reported stolen in Dallas") (Always around 5am)

      'Scary'? Brakes are a wear item - be grateful you get a fresh set. Ours lasted about 30k miles. I imagine that someone who makes frequent use of the auto-cruise-control would wear them out much...
    17. Did the dealer tell you the rotors are worn out?...

      Did the dealer tell you the rotors are worn out? If you're not feeling anything wobbly then they are fine. Rotors take a loooooooong time to wear out.

      Is that price for all 4 corners? Too good to...

      It reflects two 'discounts':
      - Covid: body shops are deemed essential so they're open. But business is slow because people have been told the sky is falling... if you venture out good deals can be...

      Good move. That's exactly what we did when our XC90 got a self-inflicted wound. Ours was $700 paid in cash, I'll bet yours would only be about $500.

      Oh it's against the law all right - but these days the 'undocumented' get a free pass. You're being judgemental if you arrest such a person.

      Arrested? You must be joking.

      Anyway, I just paid $700 cash to get something similar fixed. Looks as good as new. If you can get insurance to cover it without affecting your rate, even better.

      Likely not unusual. I ordered some custom rotors for my truck, just installed yesterday, even they had a little rust.

      Just run them. Any time your rotors catch a little moisture you'll see a fresh...

      OP if you ever figure out how you 'broke' start/stop, please share! I hate that feature with the power of a thousand suns.

      What's the left function panel? The stuff I see after swiping? (My goal in life is never to swipe at all, but rather to disable many of the features if possible - notably all the alarms, and the...

    29. "Speed Limit" disappeared after software update

      We took my wife's XC90 in for the 30k service a few weeks ago, they updated to latest software.

      Now the little "speed limit" icon no longer appears.

      - Anyone else have this happen?
      - Is it...
    30. How to stop beeps & bops while backing out of garage?

      My wife's XC90 beeps like crazy when backing out of the garage. It's very distracting.

      Any way to disable those 'features'?

      Thanks
