      Frankly, putting the money into car upgrades during this crisis is frivolous and wasteful.

      There are real families undergoing real suffering. If you find yourself in the fortunate position of...

      Reads to me like for $1700 invested after shop time, parts, and labor, you'll have a semi-refreshed engine. The car should last another 20K.

      While BEVs and PHEVs are higher priced, I have yet to see mild-hybrid deliver on the fuel savings in time to amortize the additional MSPR over its standard gas engine models.

      Since we don't get the diesel option, I have a suspicion Volvo USA may elect to bypass the hassle of training tech and managing inventory of a mild hybrid fleet and jump straight to the T8 or All...

      We do not get the B5 option in America, but if you avoided the T8 because you didn't trust it - why would you pile faith into a hybrid of another another variety from the same manufacturer?

      Sorry...

      This is directly from the Volvo website. Why would the model matter?
      The engine is the engine. The T5 makes the same stated power in the XC90 as it does in the XC40, S60, & XC60.

      What is the published date of this requirement?

      As of Jan 2020, Volvo published this as the requirement. Specific call outs for T6 & T8, nothing for T4 & T5.

      There is no demand for premium fuel for T5 engines according to Volvo own information as of Jan-2020. This requirement does however exist for for T6 and T8 engines.

      That's not 100% accurate. The Drive-E engine family has requirements that vary:
      The T4 & T5 minimum spec is 87 octane.
      The T6 & T8 minimum spec is 91 octane.


      High performance motors, yes. ...

      Your next diagnostic step is to get the truck to a Volvo specialist who has Volvo's VIDA/DICE combo to properly read what is failing the ignition sequence.

      No need for OEM crossbars. They're standard Thule Aeroblades that were de-branded for Volvo.

      That's about 99% of GM products. People have complained about this for decades now and GM refuses to do a thing to improve this aspect until you reach Corvette / Camaro for handling, Cadillac or the...

      Wet sanding and touch up is good for light scratches that maybe cut through the clear coat and a layer of paint.
      The scratches here appear to have cut through down to the primer coat. That is going...

      This is the correct answer, Shaw. Do all four transmission related fluids at once and you won't have to think about them again for another 40,000 miles minimum.

      The body panels are electrogalvanized and coat so I wouldn't worry about rust developing just yet. The whole body as a matter of fact is dipped, so it'll resist rust for a bit. Note: I did not say...

      Since you're the sole owner and say you have cared for it since it was new, you know its maintenance history and what problems it may have.
      The decision isn't financial. It's desire vs. needs.

      I would probably run a can of SeaFoam through the engine just to be safe and clean out the rest of the residual gunk left after burning off the excess fuel inside the exhaust stream.
