TPMS sensor gave warning of low pressure tires, even if they were not low. Apparently during last service software was upgraded, and in cold temperature it is necessary to over inflate the tires a few psi to cancel it (TSB).
Blower fan stays on at all times. Volvo confirmed that they had never encountered this issue on a 2014. I consulted the Volvo manual and noted that it was likely the Blower Power Supply Unit. Volvo replaced the part under warranty.
Outside mirrors would no longer retract. Service tech informed us that it was a common problem that could be resolved by holding down left and right mirror buttons simultaneously.
media centre locked up
Paid some $400 to replace a battery that was failing to hold a charge. Car some 5yrs old. Based on above guide I assume this is not a repair.
Could hear a low pitched noise when the AC was on. Pitch changed as engine rev increased. Didn't happen consistently. Service Manager heard it, but said it wasn't worth the cost of repairs unless it got worse.
car would not start in cold weather, even with AAA jumper cables.
Backup camera did not work. Dealer had to order new camera. Installation of new camera is scheduled for June 2.

Strong odor from ac vents. Dealer deodorized and set afterblow fan to run longer.
Began noticing a mildew smell from A/C system upon start up of engine. Dealer flushed and cleaned system and reset computer code to make the blower work after engine shut off.
Mildew smell again in A/C syst. Dealer flushed syst and chckd to see if after blower was engaged. Dealer says after blower should work, but I still can't hear it engage. Said the smell will probably return when A/C is used again in summer.
Another visit for the awful smell in the AC system. They flushed system and told me to run AC on fresh air and not to use the recycled air as that causes moisture build up. Has been ok since but not repaired. Just masked the problem.
Issue with the headrest entertainment system.
Issue with the remote keyless entry no longer working on driver's side.

BSS blind spot system. False alarm or no alarm, or non-stop alarm. Two sensors in a mirror has been replaced, it solved the problem.
AC compressor, AC selenoid, AC controller, trouble shooting, leak check, freon refill, recheck, etc.
First scheduled service at 7,500 miles. A few small things were addressed; the BLIS camera had been malfunctioning, outside temperature reading was much higher than what the temp actually is. And the A/C system had an issue. Everything was resolved.
Side mirror on the drivers side need to be repaired as wires had corroded and the mirror would not longer heat up to remove frost etc

cruise not working, radar alignment problem due to high pressure car washing
Nasty smell was being emitted by A/C system - not just a musty or mildew smell - it smelled very much like vomit! System was flushed and deodorized and the problem was resolved.

Alarm System Message needs maintenance - parts ordered.
Fuel gauge gets stuck shows over 1/4 tank, display says 140km to empty. Car runs out of gas. Has happened 3 times. To fix this they must remove rear axles, differential, cut exhaust in 3 places. Workmanship at dealer too poor to procede Alarm sensor changed. Dashboard and console damaged by mechanic. Needs to be returned for another repair but tired of poor service and lack of quality repairs. Dealing with owner and Volvo Canada. memory setting for passenger side mirror work 60% of the time. Cant find problem. Mirror gets stuck in tilt position after backing up 2 or 3 times per week. Dealer can't figure it out.
Heated function of the driver side mirror failed after original manufacturer warranty; entire assembly of side mirror was replaced by dealer which was a total cost of $700 but luckily I had extended warranty that I only ended up paying $100 Power door locks would work half the time inthe rear passenger side door (door remained lock even if unlock button pressed)

Driver's side door would not open when unlocked, but would open when locked. Faulty left front door lock motor.
I'd been noticing some audio distortion. While in for a normal 15K service, I asked the tech to look at it. Front passenger speaker was replaced.
Cruise would cut out after about 90km and would not reset for another 40kms, became more frequent. Was told they were aware of problem on XC60 and was repaired by a download. Working good.
Second time for this problem. Extremely gross smell coming from the ventilation when AC turned on. Mold and mildew smell. They sprayed the system again, the second time. Was told there is no known fix! Volvo is aware of problem. traded in.
electronic system intermittent faults
The A/C Recharge doesn't lst more than 1 month.
i have a leakage in the fluid circuit.
Sensor in fuel tank misreporting fuel amount. Dead on side of road with gauge reporting a quarter tank, didn't realize simply out of gas. Sensor was physically modified and remounted.
Car's power was completely out. No electrical system was working. Volvo Road Assist sent tow truck, they jumped and car started. They still took in to dealer who checked all out and replaced the battery.
Audio system produced only buzz on all inputs, AM/FM/iPod/CD. Dealer diagnosed as a faulty amp module, ordered and replaced. Fixed
Fuel pick-up sensor for second time. First time in September. Gauge continued to read empty for 40 miles after filling up. Back in September it read 1/4 full when I ran out of gas. Radio/Satelite-problem with keypad locking up when phone attached through bluetooth. One day in shop, not resolved, was asked to return after they ordered part. Sold car back to the dealer at that time.
Battery appears to have shorted out, which in turn wiped out computer programing for radio, so that radio and associated service (bluetooth, etc) were inoperable. Car temporarily would not start. Later did start. Hard to trace to battery.
USB port in center console broke. Dealer kept the car one day for diagnosis of this absurdly simple problem. Dealer had to order part, so second day at the shop was required.
Battery dead, used Volvo On Call for jump start. Dealer replaced battery.
Battery failed/no start condition. No warning or hint of a problem. This is the second replacement battery in 118,000 miles. This Volvo-branded battery failed two months after the expiration of the new battery warranty.
Passenger side electric door lock button fell through panel into door frame. Apparently clip holding the switch to the door inside panel broke and had to be replaced
Navigation system froze and rebooted while driving. Adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and city safe all cancelled themselves on a trip. All were disabled "not available" until I turned off the car, locked, unlocked and restarted the car.
Battery drained after the car sat unused for 1 week. The problem was a known problem for this model reported in a TSB involving some component not turning off completely
Dead battery. Probably due to the car being on the dealer's lot for several weeks.
Battery failed to start after two nights in 20 degree temperatures. Current Battery warranty (NEW) is 4 yrs/50,000 miles. Even though the Safe and secure warranty said everything was covered for 5 yrs 60K miles. The Stealership says "NO"
Power hatch would not open when external button was pushed, but internal button and fob worked. Diagnostics and factory consultation resulted in removal of passenger seat and carpet to fix broken connector to control unit. Go figure.
Horn stopped working and needed to be replaced
Blind spot information system stopped working
Blind Spot System wasn't working correctly.
Battery cable had to be replaced, corrosion build up and no longer carrying a good charge. We replaced the battery and cleaned the cable about 6-7 months before the cable had to be changed. I've never had this much buildup on a cable before.
The "Auto" climate control button was not working to WARM the car. Unless the manual override was used the car interior was cold. No warm air was coming from particularly the main vents. An engine thermostat was not working correctly.
Horn died and was replaced. Audio disc player failed and was not replaced.
Driver door window not working, Horn not working. Disc player not working.
