      This happened to our '16 XC90. Sometimes it wouldn't start in the morning but it took a dozen or so tries to finally work. When you try to turn the car on, it was just a click or two and then...

      Those free scheduled oil changes turned out to be a fantastic deal. Quality work right there.

      I should probably replace the drain plug while I'm down here.

      This is for engine air filters. They're much easier than the cabin air filter, it's a 5 minute job. I don't recall the torx bit size so prepare them all to remove the cover.

      Which oil are you using? 39k miles so far on ours and no consumption with the 5w-30 oil from the dealership. I'll switch to the Liqui Moly 0w-20 for next winter.

      Not American, but we flew Delta in summer of 2016. I'm assuming it was allowed since the Delta flights were much cheaper than SAS ($900 vs $1700).

      Temperatures in Europe are typically not as extreme as they can be in parts of the US. I wouldn't want to run a 0w-20 during the hottest days in Arizona and Nevada.
