So last week a maintenance request came up on the display, schedule maint soon. was only 7700 miles but the tech said it was probably because it was 1 year. I gave him the laundry list of things I had been saving up, like the engine accelerating, dying, then surging and being fine after that. Two weeks ago I was backing into a parking spot in Pure mode, half a charge left, and the car didn't go, the ICE fired up and turned back off, then the car went in reverse on electric, quite odd. This past week my track seek buttons on the steering wheel go unresponsive, and the Sensus Home button is dead at the same time. Lately the adaptive cruise has been coming really close up on people before jamming on the brakes, instead of smoothly following cars in afternoon city street traffic, I've had to stomp on the brakes cuz I wasn't sure it was going to stop (I always ride foot over pedal just to be cautious). And of course the usual 70mph 20" Pirelli tire vibration that everyone else has.
Two days later I now have a loaner (2020 XC60 T5 AWD), he says the S90 is hooked up to a computer and Volvo corporate tech is doing work on it, no description of what's wrong.
Even tho I reported the tire vibration on the first two visits, the problem now is that one is unbalance-able, the two rear rims are bent on the inside (so not a parallel park job), and one has a nail in it. So he's not going to take responsibility for any tire issues.
He said he replaced the buttons on the steering wheel, I asked about sensus Home button, he said "well you're getting a big software update so we'll check after that".
I bought my car last April and they've never done any updates on it so I know there are several big packages it'll get, if they do it. They told me they would absolutely upload the new stuff last year, and then didn't. So I'm not holding my breath.
He said that it's just corporate doing the software install, but would it take two days?
I hope something addresses the cruise control cuz i'm going to be very distrusting of it on highway and in city now. It was my savior on my way home in Atlanta traffic, so if it's going to ride up on people, my only solution will be to turn it off.
Trying not to be a worrywort, but would you think there is something drastically wrong if it's taking 3 days? Or is that usual for cars that are more software than hardware.
Hope my boy is recoverable, can't get Magic Blue any more.
I like the maps in the XC60 way better than the sensus ones in mine, wasn't 2020 supposed to be the start of Android in the systems?
Thanks all for listening to my rant.
