At the end of last month, the 4G Modem upgrade option for the 2016 XC90 was finally made widely available.
I called my dealership to let them know (they hadn’t heard yet), and they gave me a quote for the upgrade after some research.
They quoted me $1,699.54 for parts and labor before tax. Has anyone here gone through with this upgrade yet? Does this cost seem right?
I was looking for this as an answer but everyone was telling me you can’t do that with this car. If it was still under warranty I would say no. But not the case.I highly recommend the solution from Midcity Engineering and Drone Mobile (Volvo XC60 and XC90 Remote Start – SKSXC | Mid City Engineering Store.) It takes just a few minutes for any car electronics shop to install, and works perfectly -- door locks, remote start, everything as expected. In fact, I've found it to be substantially faster/more responsive than the Volvo On Call app was in starting the vehicle.
It also enables remote start via the fob as an added benefit -- three taps on the lock button, and that's it.
I've had this installed for about 18 months, after becoming impatient with Volvo's lack of communication. Again, highly recommended. About $400 all installed for me. Supposedly you can install it yourself, but I have a good shop nearby that I trusted more than I do myself.
Thank you. I will check it out. Really need my car to be warm after getting off work. Mike
