11760:15640|Hi, I’m Susan. Welcome to the first experience of your new Volvo.
15960:17560|I hope you are going to like what you see.
42320:49600|I’ve had the Volvo XC90 for some time and I’m very pleased with it. I would like to share some of my experiences with you.
49800:51600|Let’s go for a drive.
640:9000|The first thing you want to do is to adjust the steering wheel. Just pull this lever and adjust the wheel up or down, in or out.
10000:14520|Then you will adjust your seats. This is a little different depending on what seats you have.
14920:18080|Please show me if you have a manual seat or a power seat.
800:3400|Okay, you have chosen the manual seats.
4000:13680|By the way, these seats are the most comfortable ones I’ve ever sat in. Adjustment is really simple.
14640:18400|Just pull this bar to move it forward or backward.
19480:28200|Raise or lower the front of the seat by pulling up or pressing down on this and tilt the backrest with this.
29400:37500| Move the seat up or down with this handle. The lumbar support is adjusted here.
Seat with memory function (option)
400:5320|Okay, you have chosen the optional power seats with three memory settings.
5920:12880|By the way, these seats are the most comfortable ones I’ve ever sat in. Adjustment is really simple.
13360:21560|Just press this button to move the seat forward or backward. Raise or lower the seat with this, and move the backrest with this.
22160:29080|Move the front of the seat cushion with this. Store your setting by pressing the memory button and setting 1.
29480:32880|The lumbar support is adjusted here. That’s it.
33600:40880|Now, this setting is activated along with the rear view mirror setting, every time this key and remote is used.
41200:43990|It’s really convenient if you share the car with someone else.
High idle speed
880:2200|Let’s start the engine.
5000:11800|Listen to the high idle speed. Some people think this is too high, but there is a reason for it.
12320:17960|It quickly raises the temperature in the exhaust system and that makes the exhausts cleaner and less harmful.
18200:21960|I think it’s smart and I don’t mind, if it’s good for the environment.
9500:15440|If you want to use the automatic locking you activate it by pressing the central locking button for a few seconds.
16000:22880|The doors lock automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 7 km/h.
22280:27880|They remain locked until you open one of the doors or press the central locking button.
Electronic climate control, ECC (option)
0:5920|Next I would like to show you the electronic climate control. It is very easy to use.
7120:18320|Press the Auto button to control the climate automatically. To set the temperature for the passenger side or the driver side, just turn the left or right knob.
19720:29320|To override the blower Auto setting, turn the blower knob. Change the air distribution by pressing one of the buttons in the symbol.
30280:35880|The air quality button toggles between Recirculation, Auto or Off.
36520:43920|I always leave the air-condition on, it makes the air quality better and it quickly removes fog from the windscreens.
0:7600|I always activate the rain sensor when there is a risk for rain. This way I don’t have to bother with the wipers.
8240:12580|The light in the button makes it easy to see if it’s on or off.
13580:20220|You might want to make an extra wipe now and then. Just flip the stalk upward.
20740:25780|But if you flip it downward you override the rain sensor and you have to activate it again.
0:5080|I like to have music when I drive and the sound system in this car is incredible.
5480:12800|You have a Dolby Prologic II decoder for true surround effects from CD and MP3.
13720:20600|You can plug in your mp3 player in the auxiliary input and listen through the speakers.
21480:29600|The first time you might need to adjust the input volume. Just press the Menu button and choose AUX volume.
30800:34600|Then you adjust the volume by turning the selector knob.
36320:42400|Passengers in the backseat can listen to headphones and control the CD or radio from their own panels.
42800:48800|They can seek or change radio stations, they can fast forward or change CD tracks.
50400:57360|When driving I use the steering wheel buttons to control the CD and radio. I don’t even take my eyes from the road.
57800:63040|With a short press on the forward button I change CD tracks or preset radio station.
63440:68160| Press and hold to fast forward the CD player or search for radio stations.
68600:72280|The Volume control is straight forward, up or down.
1000:5100|Let’s stop for a while and I’ll show you some useful details.
6420:11900|I’ll start with the clock. You set it by turning this knob left or right. That’s it.
0:8440|There are two trip meters and you toggle between them with a short press on this knob. To reset the current, just make a long press.
Indicator, information and warning symbols
0:9600|In the main instrument you have information about fuel quantity, outside temperature and of course the trip computer. I’ll show you more later.
0:7000|I want to show you the convenient storage compartments. There is one seat pocket for each front seat.
8520:13800|Then of course the lockable glove compartment, the cup holders and CD storage in the center.
14200:17800|You can actually fit 8 CD:s in there if you use it right.
21800:28200|The back seat passengers have their own cup holders and storage compartment in the doors and in the seat pockets.
28480:32400|The third row passengers have a center console for storage.
0:7560|At times you may want to transport long objects. For this purpose you can fold both back seat rows.
8120:14480|To fold the third row you slide the seat cushion to its rearmost position. Fold in the cargo eyes.
14920:18160|Fold the backrest and the head rest folds automatically.
18560:24160|To fold the second row, move the seats to their rearmost position. Fold the head restraint.
24520:30160|Release the catch and fold the backrest. Press down on the backrest to lock it.
2000:8800|We are going to head back and I will show you the trip computer and the Blind Spot Information System.
9920:15160|You find the trip computer in the main instrument by turning the ring on the left stalk.
15560:20800|There is one function that you might want to know more about; the distance to empty tank.
21520:26960|The distance is calculated from the average fuel consumption during the last 30 kilometers.
27360:32200| This means that if you start driving more aggressively it might not be totally accurate.
Blind Spot Information System, BLIS (option)
0:6320|The Blind Spot Information System is an option that will help you to notice vehicles in the blind spot.
6600:14000|When someone enters the blind spot either from behind or when you overtake someone, you get a warning light here.
0:9600|The direction indicators have a short flash option if you move the stalk switch up or down one step. This is perfect when overtaking.
Active Bi-Xenon Lights (option)
0:5280|Well I hope you enjoyed it so far. Before you go there are a few more things to look at.
6000:16500|One of them concerns driving in the dark. It’s called Active BiXenon Light. It’s a simple feature, yet very powerful.
17500:25000|The Active BiXenon Light is activated when you turn on the ignition, but you can deactivate it here in the center console.
26040:27800|Let’s look at how it works.
27400:31400|Active BiXenon Light turn the headlights when you turn the steering wheel.
31680:37000|This way you get much better lighting in sharp turns and intersections.
Disabling the passanger airbag
0:5480|To use a child seat in the front seat, you MUST deactivate the passenger airbag.
5800:9120|To do this, open the door and turn the switch to OFF.
9440:13800|You will get a reminder in the rear view mirror saying it’s off.
Fuel filler flap
0:10320|The fuel filler flap is located on the right side rear wing. When you fill fuel you can hang the fuel cap on a clip in the fuel filler flap.
0:5760|I always like to take care of my new cars and that means I wash them a lot.
6200:14880|I’ve learned from Volvos paint experts that it’s best to hand wash the car during the first months. Now that’s my last tip to you.
15560:17640|Thank you for taking your time.
17880:21560| If you want to know more, please explore the in-depth chapters.
21840:26640|I hope you will enjoy your new Volvo.
