How about the rear view mirror? My wife and I are always manually readjusting that after the other uses it.VLD1, if mine had the manual extension I could almost give that a pass, as that's not too big a deal to change quickly between drivers. But yeah, the non-power steering wheel adjustment seems like a real miss on a car at this price point and with virtually everything else having a power function. I mean powered fold down headrests, but no power steering column?!!! Plus that is something that can change a lot between drivers, so having that tied to the seat memory button makes a lot of sense, and is what some other premium brands do.
It's so weird Volvo doesn't offer a power steering column in any of its cars, especially since I drove a base Acura MDX that had one.The manual extensions, as well as the manual steering wheel adjust were two things that I thought were sadly lacking in this price range. But the reality is (I'm the sole driver), I adjusted the seat and the steering wheel the day I picked up the car and haven't touched the adjustments since, 10 months later.
Not really an issue for me, and I have mine fully extended as well. Do you have the seat angle up a lot, or positioned high, so that there's no room between the steering wheel and the seat?as an aside, does anyone find the extensions outer edge/corner annoying?...i have the extension slightly out on my VOR and i sometimes get caught sliding into the seat...annoying...not sure why the extensions edge can't be manually set up or down...they stick up too much IMO...anyone else think this?
