      haha, I know you and I both have differing opinions on this which is fine [emoji6]

      Our family did open-jaw back in June 2018, definitely not a problem. There was a cost limit that guided flight choices (i can't remember what the price was) but it's dependent on how far and from...

      There's probably I'm going to guess 5(?) degrees of rotational slop aka microadjustment because there must be shaft to hole clearance as there are no indications of hammering in the new steering...

      Correct. While the old steering wheel was aligned perfectly 12 o'clock to the perfectly straight-ahead wheels, swapping out and tightening down a new steering wheel will require that new steering...

      This "air" is the radial clearance between the female hex hole and the male (hex or round) shaft. (Otherwise you would have a "press fit" and would need to hammer the steering wheel onto the car...

      What does the mating shaft look like, round or hex? Do you happen to have a picture of the orientation of the tightening screw?

      To fit the shaft into the hex hole there has to be some clearance (or you'll have to hammer stuff in). Would that clearance account for the non-perfect alignment?

      Excellent point. Few comments: what really is "full" or "empty" in the displayed battery status since every company manages the battery differently? Also could any "excess" regeneration energy from...

      +1 for our MY2019T8. I'm going to guess our cold threshold at start where B=D is ~<40F. I'll pay better attention and update, if I remember!

      Sorry to hear corrected tire pressure didn't solve the problem. No ERAD recall (yet) for our MY2019T8 but thanks for the heads-up.

      There are several YouTube videos of XC90 owners alive and well on sand dunes and off-roading in South Africa. A simple search would've proven an easy counterpoint.

      Thanks so much for sharing! I too didn't value a heated steering wheel from OSD but with our T8, avoiding turning on the main heater means more electric mileage. This is on my to-do list - if the T8...

      No to both. How's the cold tire pressure in all four tires? Hopefully an easy thing to check and eliminate.

      I have to second this. Using tire pressure close to what's listed on the tire (ie the max psi) will lead to a very bumpy ride as the tire becomes too stiff to help absorb any road bumps.
