  1. XC90 (SPA: 2016 - )
    Hi all, I'm living in South Africa and I've never owned a Volvo before. I was looking for a good, dependable 2nd hand vehicle and was initially considering a Kia Sorento or Hyundai Santa Fe with a budget of R400K (just under $27K USD). This budget can get a fully loaded 2016 Sorento with...
  2. XC60 (SPA: 2018- )
    I bought my 2018 XC60 T8 in February w/ 25,000 miles on it. Runs great. Love it. When I fill up the gas tank once a month or so, the gas indicator shows 480 miles to empty tank, but that number drops in huge chunks that don't align at all with miles driven/gas used. Here is one example: I...
  3. XC90 (SPA: 2016 - )
    I have a 2016 XC90 T8 and have been having fun charging at public stations. Have had no trouble with Volta or Chargepoint. However, I can’t seem to make any Blink stations function.

  4. XC60 (SPA: 2018- )
    Hi. I purchased a 2018 XC60 T8 that came with standard carpet mats. I ordered the rubber mats for cargo and car direct from the Volvo site. When they came, the "hump" in the back does not fit. I took it to the dealer where I picked the parts up from, and they said people with T8s throw away the...
  5. S60 & V60, V60CC (SPA: 2019- )
    Today, when I recharged my S60, something very strange happened. I started charging the car almost at 7.30 in the evening, and the VOC showed that it might fully charge at about 10.45 pm. When the time was up, I checked the app, it appears nothing, and the battery was only half-way charged...

    Volvo has spent lots of money and four years rebuilding its lineup. And despite being lauded for its cars’ undeniable style, remarkable quality, and sumptuous luxury, Volvo’s focus was clearly not on driving dynamics. And why should it have been? Anyone who says they take their Porsche Cayenne...

    It’s become such a popular rallying cry that it’s almost a cliché now, but turbo lag is one of the great sins of our time—and the cardinal sin of years gone by. Now, though, Volvo is fighting back like a paladin riding on the wings of electrification as this video by popular YouTuber Jason...

    Here’s a little inside baseball. Before journalists go on a press trip to drive a new car—say, a Volvo XC60 T8 plug-in hybrid like the one I just came back from Denver to drive—press agencies are out there trying to find the best hotels to stay at, the best restaurants to eat at, and, crucially...
