      You can also go into the settings under "my car" and turn off the fold in feature for the winter time.

      Personally I'd look for a 19 or later. The bugs are pretty well sorted and you can have the start/stop disabled. Also adaptive cruise, the hardware speed, and both apple car play and android auto...

      Pretty sure you'll have to go to the service center. Should be under warranty unless you've already hit miles.

      For 2019 (your model year) the T8 specific owners manual on page 475 references the funnel in the foam block in the cargo area (same for gas models frankly). I don't have one on the lot to confirm,...

      A non equipped service center will really hurt your ownership experience. As you experienced, these computers really need all the parameters set up right. If you take a moment and think about what...

      They only make the S60 down in SC currently. The XC60 skips the tariffs from China but it's still shipping in from Europe. Also, I imagine that any manufacturer sort of balances out the fleet. Rob...

      The feel is still there for your benefit, not the cars. It's so you can comfortably go full throttle, but if you really need it, you can effectively be Veruca Salt and "want it now" and know where...

      I will say it's depressing that generally where Volvo ranks poorly among it's competitors in class is dealership experience. I think that's changing though with Volvo corporate forcing more stringent...

      Nothing with the software or build quality is going to affect alignment. It's a simple mechanical adjustment. If I were to guess I'd say you have some new technicians who aren't entirely sure what...

      It's quite possible they add some padding internally for their CPO costs. In the industry it's called a "pack". They could put their costs of checking out the car and and washing and reconditioning...

      Most of what you list has nothing to do with the tires or concern, so it does lend to "here is a complainer". The price paid is irrelevant as the car should have met the CPO standard regardless. If...

      Actually that's exactly what happened. The dealers are charged $895 for the current CPO and I think the old one was $1395... While that's not a customer facing figure, when it gets down to what we...

      Saying the new is "bad" is assuming the dealer cost is the same... it's not. Many folks don't keep cars out to 7 years.. so they had been paying for warranty time they were not using. Considering...
