      My 2019 Xc60 T5 Momentum with the 19” wheels and whatever the Pirellis it came with has no vibration at any speed it has been driven at. <= 150 km/h so far.
      Although I would say that those tires do...

      I wonder if anywhere apart from Siberia or maybe Antarctica ever gets anywhere near -100 even allowing for “ windchill”. The Newton’s law of cooling.

      I use whatever brand is rated to -40C or -45C from my local supermarket. I buy several jugs at a time at the start of winter and top up the reservoir before any trip of 200 km or more. With the front...

      One Year Old - Is it time for Service?

      My 16000 km service will be due at probably about 12000 km in late March. 1 year rather than mileage.
      OK I’ll just do that and then it will be another year and another 12000 km.

      Very few XC60s in our area, why?

      In my bit of Ontario I see plenty of XC90s of various ages but very few XC60s. Like your area Audi, MB and BMW SUVs and CUVs are like cockroaches.
      Don’t know why, the local dealer is long...

      How to tell if I have Polestar

      Shammyh. I have no problem with the Volvo transmission. I think the integration with Polestar could be better...that’s all.

      The only Ferrari I have ever driven was in the early 70s.

      2020 XC60 Polestar

      OK. But I think it would be far more “real world” to have tested a non hybrid 2020 XC60 with Polestar optimization. A T5 or a T6 Momentum or Inscription.

      There are many people. Who just don’t...

      Don’t care about the button. I would like 360 deg camera on all the time when under 5 km/hr in forwards or reverse. This would cover all parking and slow speed manoeuvres.

    25. swap the ATT SIM out and replace with T-mobile SIM?

      Rogers is all GSM mostly LTE 4G. With some 3G spots.
      I think GSM is called UTMS nowadays.

      I don’t think any network in Canada uses CDMA, the last one was switched late last year.
