I am merging two posts I made in SPA XC90 into one so read carefully.


PLEASE NOTE!!!! This software is nothing you need to rush to the dealership for and is not something we do for free unless your vehicle is in for a maintenance or warranty repair.


I dont have much on specifics but a new update was released for July and it states the following:

■ Improvement of the AWD system's optimization.
■ Improvements of the engine control system's optimization.
■ Improvements to transmission system optimization.

If you have not had the May update, the May updates are included as well as I have posted previously.


AGAIN, I DO NOT HAVE SPECIFICS.

OIL VISCOSITY:

This was released from Volvo to us the other day and if you do your own oil changes outside of the three free services, please note this:

All model year 2019 and 2020 vehicles are delivered from the factory with Castrol EDGE Pro V 0w-20

Synthetic oil. Castrol EDGE Pro V 0W20 is specifcally co-engineered for the Volvo VEP4 2.0L engine

to maximize fuel effciency and engine performance.

Also note:

The vehicle’s Owner’s Manual currently reflects the global recommendation for oil viscosity.
The U.S. market will follow the extreme driving conditions recommendation.

EXTREME CONDITIONS FOR US MARKET:

- Trans Fluid = Volvo recommends changing transmission fluid every 50,000 miles/80,000 kilometers, only on vehicles used for towing,
or when a message appears in the instrument panel text window.
- CABIN FILTERS = Recommended to replace at least once a year or more often in heavy traffic or dirty/dusty areas. (this means 10k miles or one year as opposed to VOLVO WARRANTY services doing it at 20k miles)
- BRAKE FLUID = Recommended to replace every 3 years or 40,000 miles (if driven in mountainous areas or humid climates – every one year) at owner’s request.
