Beware Volvo's City Safety System

I purchased a new S60 for many reasons-- the most compelling being the City Safety System. This was my fourth Volvo. All of the ads on this feature made me wonder how I or my family could drive without it. A month after purchase, a man slammed on his brakes in front of me when a child went into the crosswalk (not dissimilar to the TV commercial). My car not only didn't stop but didn't even slow down and rear ended the vehicle in front of me. How could this happen when I had City Safety? I sent a letter to the President of Volvo and was routed to customer service. They sent a technician to check the "black box" and let me know the system worked just fine. Read the fine print in the owners manual, they told me. City Safety really only works in certain condition and the advertising is not accurate. In other words, they mistake is yours. You trusted us. Volvo makes a just fine vehicle -- but this feature does not work. #VolvoSafetyFail

I leased this car new. Sign and drive, Kline Volvo Minnesota. $385 a month sign and drive no money down!. $41k sticker, Nav, backup sensors, sport dash. I've leased for 20 years, this car is solid. Nearly 4k pound curb weight. I feel SAFE. The car has great zip, can really accelerate like a bad a$$. Interior design is quintessentially Swedish luxury, I smile every time I get in. All maintenance free with Volvo's the first 4 years. In Minnesota I drove 7k miles a year. I moved to Chicago last May, car is parked I live and work downtown. I take it to Wholefoods, the dog park and long road trips back East. The car goes back next Spring, I will miss it. Volvo has increased sales from low 400,000's globally to 600,000 in about 2 years. My concern, they are cashing in ...their leases and downs are getting very high. I have vehicle serviced at Orloff Volvo Jaguar LandRover, if Volvo doesn't cut a great deal, I've seen sign and drives on the Jag XE and LR Discovery Sport. I have a 110 pound English Labrador and purchased the Volvo Dog Harness......its beefy! After 20 years of leasing I've leased Volvo's most...........I've walked away for a "deal" to another brand, I'm more loyal to the deal than any brand. However, when I get back into a Volvo..............it feels like home.

Nice vehicle but not at par with other Euro sedans

For the most part, it's a nice car with good performance and mostly good features. Fun to drive and pretty good economy but it requires Midgrade (89 octane). The issues thus far after 1 month are mostly annoyances rather than problems. Navigation does not seem to update traffic or construction. Dual-zone climate controls have no sync option. Exterior door handles are pinchy (watch your fingers or you'll be sorry). The AT&T Wi-if is almost useless and difficult to setup with very, very slow speeds. The menu system is NOT intuitive and to make matters worse, the manual is not applicable to the actual options in the menu system (e.g. There is no "My car" category in the menu system, which is frequently referenced in the manual). The visors are not extendible so you have no way to block sunlight coming through the side windows (heck, even cheap Fords offer this). The tire pressure system only tells you if you have a low tire. No specific info as to which tire is the problem or how low it is. No PSI display for the tires (again, even very modest vehicles offer this feature) however it does for some reason have a "calibration" process for the tires. Seats are a bit stiff and not great for long trips. Bluetooth connection is iffy and sometimes does not connect with phones.

Love this thing!

I have owned a lot of european cars and this is honestly my first Volvo I have ever owned. Starting off with the fact that it is the only "luxury sedan" where you do not need to put premium gasoline in it. The seats are incredibly comfortable and I actually do have a lot of back problems and commute about 50-60 miles a day. The cabin is incredibly quiet and even the T5 has great acceleration. The trunk space is adequate however I do wish there was a tiny bit more room in the back. Materials on the interior are high quality and the car has no squeaks or rattles. I love the Volvo on call service I get and the app that controls it. Gas mileage is great and the car in general is an overall great car. The reliability of it is definitely better than my BMW I had and the Volvo is by far the most comfortable car I've owned.
