I HAVE HAD AN UNRESOLVED ISSUE WITH A PERSISTENT VIBRATION THROUGHOUT THE VEHICLE WHILE AT 50MPH OR HIGHER. THIS SEEMS TO BE A UNIVERSAL ISSUE WITH VOLVOS POST 2017 ACROSS MODELS. I HAVE ATTACHED A COPY OF MY EMAILS AND NON-RESPONSES FROM VOLVO DEALER REPS WHO HAVE CLAIMED IT IS NORMAL BEHAVIOR. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO ANOTHER DEALER WITH WHOM I TEST DROVE THE CAR AFTER THEIR FAILURE TO IDENTIFY THE ISSUE AND THE SAME RESPONSE. THE AUSTIN, TEXAS VOLVO MECHANIC WHO DROVE WITH ME INDICATED THAT VOLVO CARS OF AMERICA MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR THE DEALERSHIP TO IDENTIFY A PROBLEM AND JUSTIFY A REPAIR TO THIS ISSUE WHICH SEEMS LIKE AN ORGANIZED CONSPIRACY. MY RESEARCH INDICATES THIS IS A COMMON ISSUE THAT THE DEALERS AND MANUFACTURERS FAIL TO RECOGNIZE.

MY S60 2015.5 ABRUPTLY CUT OFF WHEN AT A STANDSTILL "STATIONARY" IN TRAFFIC AND ON THE HIGHWAY TRAFFIC THE WARNING SYSTEM SOUND CAME ON, AS IF CLOSE TO AN OBJECT, THEN THE SCREEN FLASHED ON THEN OFF ONE TIME. WITHIN MINUTES OF A COMPLETE STOP, THE CAR CUTS OFF COMPLETELY. THE SCREEN DISPLAYED "TURN ON ENGINE." MY CAR HAD TO BE PLACED IN PARK BEFORE THE ENGINE WOULD START. THIS HAD OCCURRED AT LEAST THREE TIMES IN 2019. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD THIS EXPERIENCE. THE ISSUE WAS UNABLE TO BE DUPICATED AND NO FAULT CODE.
My car has the start/stop function. It has a button to manually deactivate the start/stop system but it has to be pushed every time the car is restarted. My husband was driving the car a couple of weeks ago and decided to stop at a convenience store to get a pepsi. He parked in a parking space. He didn't realize that he hadn't pressed the deactivation switch and when he parked the car, it shut off. He'd been driving in a lot of traffic and didn't realize the start/stop had stopped the engine. He thought he'd turned the car off. Well, he opened the door and when he took his foot off the brake pedal the engine restarted and the car lurched forward causing it to jump the concrete parking bumper. Fortunately the only damage it caused was to the plastic belly pan underneath the engine. But someone in a 4x4 pickup had to winch my car backwards to get it off the parking bumper. There should be an option in the car's control center to permanently deactivate the auto start/stop function instead of having to do it manually every time the car is started. All cars with the auto start/stop feature need to have the option available. Volvo told me it can't be done. It's a computer, i'm sure it could be reprogrammed with that option. This is just an accident and lawsuit waiting to happen! It's easy to forget, especially if a person has a lot on his/her mind (and who doesn't these days? )
I bought this 2017 v60 from crippen volvo in 2019 with only around 1000miles on it. I am the first owner. The transmission act weirdly on the second day i bought it. It has a powe cut between 1st gear and 2 nd gear, just like drving a manual. (only when it is completely warm) bring it to crippen volvo, they update the software of tcm, things get better a bit. But still jerky from 1st gear to 2nd gear. Bring it to suburban volvo, they reset everything of the software. Things get better a bit, but the problem came back several days after that. In march 2020, bring it to suburban volvo again, technician there opened a case with volvo usa, volvo usa told them to replace the whole transmission. Job got down after a month. In late april, problem com back again, the new transmission jerky from 1st to 2nd gear when it is completely warm, (just get off the highway) i don't know how they will handle it next. I will go there again on 4/30 i also hear popping noise from the fuel tank every time i top up the fuel tank. It seems like is the bad fuel pump causes the problem.
Transmission goes into neutral when coasting down hill, or when you let up off the accelerator. Doesn? T the regulations state that? The vehicle shall be operated in gear at all times, except as necessary to shift or stop??
