I have already driven 115K, and am used to being warned to add a quart/litre of oil. But this time the warning did not go off after adding a quart. So I added another. But still getting warned after I start the car. I finally figured out how to check the electronic gauge, and it reads OK. Any ideas why the warning persists while the oil level reports OK?

For readers not familiar with the E-Design engine, could you explain how to "check the electronic gauge" for oil level? Does this engine not have a dipstick?

This false "add a quart" advisory seems like a serious flaw, considering the colossal mess that would result to the engine if blindly obeyed -- You should report this problem to Volvo Cars USA, and request that they put an expert troubleshooter on it.
