It was just announced 7 days ago for 06 and 07s so mabe they do not now about it.i want this. how much?
My dealer does not know anything about this, stating it is not available @ volvo of toronto.
I can speak to this one.Any legal/insurance issues if a vehicle running software other than that recommended by Volvo is involved in an accident?
Thanks to @Lawguy for this advise.I can speak to this one.
I cannot fathom any per se liability for an accident in a car with performance software upgrades. Its like asking if you are more or less liabile of you rear end someone while driving a Corvette versus a Malibu ~ it doesnt matter. Your liability for an accident will depend on the amount of care you exercised - or lack thereof. "Negligence" is based on what you did (driving too fast for conditions, failing to keep safe lookout & rear ending someone, etc) or what you did not do but should have (failed to stop at a traffic light, failed to look before merging, etc). It has little to do with size of engine or specs.
That being said, its easier to get into trouble in a faster car, but the fact you are driving a faster car, or have tweaked your car is not a basis for enhanced liability in and of itself.
I have a 2006 XC90 2.5t and it was done at the Park Place Volvo dealership in Dallas. It's basically right next to Love Field airport. it seems to have a little more pick up and i think it was worth it. I just hope that it doesn't mess up the tranny over time. I'm not a mechanic or anything so I don't know but I would think Volvo wouldnt issue this if it did.Thanks y'all. @bgilliam - Pls. can you say what is the Year/Model of your Volvo? What dealer performed this in DFW area because I am in the area close to Volvo of Dallas on 121 and Tollway? How long did it take and was there any way to measure the increase in power at the dealership? Also, for those of us who don't have warranty, what are the advantages of Polestar? Any legal/insurance issues if a vehicle running software other than that recommended by Volvo is involved in an accident?
