      That's what I was told at the time by my dealer. Exactly 6 months after delivery of the car all of the connectivity stopped and the on call app no longer worked. I do wonder if what I was told is...

      Volvo on call deactivated

      My 2016 V60 came with 6 months of on call which was nice but not worth creating an account with AT&T to continue. I let it expire and never thought about it again until nearly 4 years had passed at...

      I've had mixed feelings about this feature from the start when I took delivery of my 2017 V60. The only time I find it practical is when approaching traffic lights which have just turned red,...

      I think I've managed to stumble upon the root cause of the problem here.

      While doing a little research on thermal fatigue I decided to look over at the NHTSA site to see if anybody else has ever...

      Yes, this is at the battery which has never been removed or disconnected for any reason. ecoDrive is correct, the starter never cranked at all. This failure occurred while the car was moving forward...

      What would cause a fusible link failure?

      The warranty on my 2016 V60 expired a couple months ago and the car now has 51,000 miles. Yesterday while driving through a parking lot at low speed (5-10 mph) the engine just died. The car was in...

      The strategy Volvo uses for cruise control (tap for 5 mph increments, hold for one mph at a time) is one of the things Volvo does differently. Other cars I have owned (VW, Audi, Porsche) all...

      Yesterday I had the nav screen up, saw the speed camera symbol and heard the ding so I figured that must be it. The speed camera symbol on my car is a square icon located on the road that looks like...

      There are no changes to the screen whatsoever when the ding occurs. It's actually very distracting to get a warning and spend the next 10 seconds looking all over the place (instead of the road) to...
