Got a loaner XC60 T5 with HUD......the HUD appears slanted on the windshield compared to an XC90. Is this something to do with the curvature of the windshield or just a side effect of being a lesser model they didn't bother to accommodate for?

You should be able to calibrate it in terms of moving it left, right, up, down and slant. Go to the HUD up display calibration icon in the center display

That's fine, I just think it's odd that it would be slanted to begin with, seems like lack of quality control.

It's possible that someone may have gone into the hud controls and messed with it a bit, not a quality control issue, but a DIP (Dumb In Public) issue

Now it is your time to show your expertise to tweak it back normal. Try it.

Also the manual says it's needed if the windshield is replaced.

Everyone's seating position is slightly different so I makes sense it has to be adjustable. After I got the car I played around with different seating positions over a few days until I found my preferred settings. Each major adjustment needed a slight slant adjustment I assume since the windshield is slightly curved which affects how the projection/reflection is viewed. Luckily the position is saved to the key.

From what I understand its only up/down and slant. No way to move left and right.

The controls in this one is up down left right, no slant

There's definitely a way to rotate it. I did it once, when setting it up.

This loaner only has 5k on it. I seriously doubt someone went to the trouble of going into HUD calibration and messing this up. Still think it is a quality control issue from the factory.

Oh, so crooked displays from the factory are normal....sorry, I'm still learning this new version of Volvo QC.

Wow, you're really adamant to pin this on Volvo for some odd reason. I guess there is no point to debate this anymore.

Except this vehicle didn't come from the factory. It's been driven by an unknown number of people over 5000 miles, so there's plenty of reason to suspect that one of them could've changed it.

Is it theoretically possible that it came that way from the factory? Sure. However, that would also mean that no one else who drove the car saw the offset and fixed it.

Maybe the windshield was broken during those 5000 miles, and the dealer didn't recalibrate it?

There are plenty of possibilities that are equally plausible as a factory mistake. It's just odd that you choose to focus on that one singularly.
