I have a 2006 S40 FWD 2.4i and I am having sporadic problems with my air conditioning. What happens is, occasionally I will turn on my air and HOT AIR blows out. During the course of the entire day no matter how long I run it for, it continues to blow out hot air. <p>Volvo is telling me it will be fixed with a software upgrade. How many people have had this problem and was it fixed after they upgraded the software?<p>Thanks!

Geez, I keep reading about all these issues with brand new Volvos and my car hasn't even been delivered yet. I'm having major second thoughts. Someone tell me it's worth it despite all of this. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Don't worry, Canadian Volvos do much better <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Good news. I had this exact problem. Super hot air blowing out of maybe just some of the vents when AC was activated. Solved by software upgrade.

I have a "rental" 2006 s40 and it did the A/C thing yesterday.....weird. My brand new s40 was leaking oil from around the filter house. They say they have fixed it, but I have not picked it up yet..........
