      From the very first, Porsche 911 owners have known a simple fuel-filler flap opening technique. It involves an eight-inch length of string with a finger loop at either end. You just drag it through...

      Resolution of my problem, since I'm the OP: simply three out-of-balance tires/wheels. Dealer rebalanced them and all is well. No bent wheel, loose lugnuts, "warped" rotors or loose foam belt.

      Yes. I do wonder about the rotors, and I assume they'll check them when I bring it in for service after the holidays are done and gone.

      Did you read my most recent post? In fact in my original, very first begin-the-thread post I specified that NO, I do not have the infamous Pirelli foam-belt tires.

      Those things are usually wildly inaccurate. What you should do is buy a GOOD tire-pressure gauge (not one of those shirt-pocket things where the marked stick pops out of the end of it), then fill...

      I believe here in NY you can't cancel your insurance without submitting your license plates along with the cancellation. No insurance, no legally drivable car.

      My wheels (I'm the OP) are standard Volvo 10-spoke 19-inchers with OEM all-season Continental tires.

      I have checked lugnut tightness. All four wheels are fine. I think the loose-lugnuts theory...

      I will check the lugs tomorrow and also look for signs of a thrown weight. Can't imagine how a wheel would get bent out of the blue, though. Thanks!

      Vibration: the Volvo curse?

      Car in question is a 2018 V90 Inspiration T6 AWD.

      I have read lots of posts about the dreaded feels-like-an-out-of-balance-tire vibration, but all of a sudden, I now have it too, so it has become...

      Buy a three-inch-long USB-to-USB dongle, plug it into the Volvo receptacle and never unplug it. Use the other end to plug in whatever you wish and the Volvo socket will stay tight forever.

      That's fine. They also provided us with a car with zero engine-monitoring gauges other than the master caution light that says "Call a flatbed, schmuck. You're done for the day."

      Sensors fail.

      It occurs to me that there are such things as 3.5mm female jack to USB plug adapter cables. I'm gonna try one of those and see if it will hook a CD player to a V90's USB receptacle.

      My badge came as part of the welcome pack, not installed by the dealer. (I put it on the rubbery soundproofing layer atop the engine, since my V90 is completely debadged.)
