It's funny actually that you mention that. I think it depends entirely on the type of snow. While I don't have a heated windshield, I find that for the rear window, when there's dry powdery snow, that it's often more effective to just brush it away or let the wind blow the snow away -- turning on the heated rear defogger generally just melts the snow and makes it stickier/and thus it doesn't brush/fall away as easily.Does yours have the heated windshield? I'm thinking that feature would really come in handy right now ...
Thanks for all the replies. The snow rake seems the best solution to me. I do not have the heater nor the heated windshield (it is probably a good solution and I hesitated a lot, but I really did not like the visible lines). The important thing is to push away the snow without scratching the paint. I do not mind taking sometime doing that. Unfortunately, the "rake" is not so easy to find, as most shops have the snow brushes (that look very scratchy!), so I may ask the Volvo dealership or check on the internet.Get yourself a "Snow Rake." Or something similar. A lot of the dealership use these to clear large amounts of snow off of new vehicles without scratching the clear coat.
:thumbup: LOL I figured that out for my old XC90.Leaf Blower
I just build another double-car garage for $70,000, attached to my house, for my new T8 XC90 that I'll buy in a couple of years, hopefully. But after my garage expenditure, I may have to buy it used.A little forethought and a garage maybe?
Do you have Amazon delivery in your country? If so - here's a link for the Sno Brum:I do not mind taking sometime doing that. Unfortunately, the "rake" is not so easy to find, as most shops have the snow brushes (that look very scratchy!), so I may ask the Volvo dealership or check on the internet.
I would be happy to answer your questions and provide any advice. Please do send me a private message. I also not familiar with that, but I see that there is a tab on top of the page. Good luck with your purchase, by experience with the purchase and with the car so far was excellent.Hello Mapache,
am new in this forum, and not sure on how to write private messages. I have noticed a familiar feature in your XC90, similar to the one I have ordered (same country, probably same dealer too), and have some quick questions for you (only info), if you have time and chance to attend. thanks a bunch
