Introduction (This film shows MY09)
12016:15647|Hi, I'm Susan. Welcome to the first experience of your new Volvo.
16013:17449|I hope you are going to like what you see.
42292:49789|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.
50024:51539|Let's go for a drive.
626:8568|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.
9822:14654|Then you will adjust your seats. This is a little different depending on what seats you have.
15124:18128|Please show me if you have a manual seat or a power seat.
653:3280|Okay, you have chosen the manual seats.
4466:13609|By the way, these seats are the most comfortable ones I've ever sat in. Adjustment is really simple.
14550:18311|Just pull this bar to move it forward or backward.
20088:27924|Raise or lower the front of the seat by pulling up or pressing down on this and tilt the backrest with this.
29910:36231|Move the seat up or down with this handle. The lumbar support is adjusted here.
Seat with memory function (option)
339:5067|Okay, you have chosen the optional power seats with three memory settings.
6480:12826|By the way, these seats are the most comfortable ones I've ever sat in. Adjustment is really simple.
13270:21629|Just press this button to move the seat forward or backward. Raise or lower the seat with this, and move the backrest with this.
22151:29335|Move the front of the seat cushion with this. Store your setting by pressing the memory button and setting 1.
29544:32757|The lumbar support is adjusted here. That's it.
33619:41038|Now, this setting is activated along with the rear view mirror setting, every time this key and remote is used.
41586:44669|It's really convenient if you share the car with someone else.
High idle speed
600:2272|Let's start the engine.
5438:11807|Listen to the high idle speed. Some people think this is too high, but there is a reason for it.
12617:18050|It quickly raises the temperature in the exhaust system and that makes the exhausts cleaner and less harmful.
18520:22334|I think it's smart and I don't mind, if it's good for the environment.
9430:15960|If you want to use the automatic locking you activate it by pressing the central locking button for a few seconds.
16744:22413|The doors lock automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 7 km/h.
22700:28003|They remain locked until you open one of the doors or press the central locking button.
Electronic climate control, ECC (option)
1776:6844|Next I would like to show you the electronic climate control. It is very easy to use.
8829:20114|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.
21446:30119|To override the blower Auto setting, turn the blower knob. Change the air distribution by pressing one of the buttons in the symbol.
31059:36806|The air quality button toggles between Recirculation, Auto or Off.
37929:45087|I always leave the air-condition on, it makes the air quality better and it quickly removes fog from the windscreens.
992:8515|I always activate the rain sensor when there is a risk for rain. This way I don't have to bother with the wipers.
9534:13244|The light in the button makes it easy to see if it's on or off.
14315:21002|You might want to make an extra wipe now and then. Just flip the stalk upward.
21263:26279|But if you flip it downward you override the rain sensor and you have to activate it again.
8489:13270|I like to have music when I drive and the sound system in this car is incredible.
14001:20976|You have a Dolby Prologic II decoder for true surround effects from CD and MP3.
22021:28604|You can plug in your mp3 player in the auxiliary input and listen through the speakers.
29988:37851|The first time you might need to adjust the input volume. Just press the Menu button and choose AUX volume.
38870:42788|Then you adjust the volume by turning the selector knob.
45348:51043|Passengers in the backseat can listen to headphones and control the CD or radio from their own panels.
51591:56737|They can seek or change radio stations, they can fast forward or change CD tracks.
58827:66194|When driving I use the steering wheel buttons to control the CD and radio. I don't even take my eyes from the road.
66403:71680|With a short press on the forward button I change CD tracks or preset radio station.
72411:76878|Press and hold to fast forward the CD player or search for radio stations.
77583:80640|The Volume control is straight forward, up or down.
1175:4466|Let's stop for a while and I'll show you some useful details.
5746:12068|I'll start with the clock. You set it by turning this knob left or right. That's it.
182:8646|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
78:9508|In the main instrument you have information about fuel quantity, outside temperature and of course the trip computer. I'll show you more later.
1253:8097|I want to show you the convenient storage compartments. There is one seat pocket for each front seat.
9717:14915|Then of course the lockable glove compartment, the cup holders and CD storage in the center.
15124:18703|You can actually fit 8 CD:s in there if you use it right.
22648:29413|The back seat passengers have their own cup holders and storage compartment in the doors and in the seat pockets.
29675:33488|The third row passengers have a center console for storage.
156:7653|At times you may want to transport long objects. For this purpose you can fold both back seat rows.
8150:14706|To fold the third row you slide the seat cushion to its rearmost position. Fold in the cargo eyes.
15072:18285|Fold the backrest and the head rest folds automatically.
19069:24737|To fold the second row, move the seats to their rearmost position. Fold the head restraint.
24685:29936|Release the catch and fold the backrest. Press down on the backrest to lock it.
6739:13191|We are going to head back and I will show you the trip computer and the Blind Spot Information System.
15177:20009|You find the trip computer in the main instrument by turning the ring on the left stalk.
20480:25129|There is one function that you might want to know more about; the distance to empty tank.
26749:31634|The distance is calculated from the average fuel consumption during the last 30 kilometers.
32208:36623|This means that if you start driving more aggressively it might not be totally accurate.
Blind Spot Information System, BLIS (option)
3186:9822|The Blind Spot Information System is an option that will help you to notice vehicles in the blind spot.
9795:17110|When someone enters the blind spot either from behind or when you overtake someone, you get a warning light here.
574:9952|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)
940:5459|Well I hope you enjoyed it so far. Before you go there are a few more things to look at.
6060:15438|One of them concerns driving in the dark. It's called Active BiXenon Light. It's a simple feature, yet very powerful.
17057:24790|The Active BiXenon Light is activated when you turn on the ignition, but you can deactivate it here in the center console.
24946:26697|Let's look at how it works.
27193:31373|Active BiXenon Light turn the headlights when you turn the steering wheel.
31529:35970|This way you get much better lighting in sharp turns and intersections.
Disabling the passanger airbag
3134:8280|To use a child seat in the front seat, you MUST deactivate the passenger airbag.
8542:11728|To do this, open the door and turn the switch to OFF.
11964:16195|You will get a reminder in the rear view mirror saying it's off.
Fuel filler flap
2168:12094|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.
365:5590|I always like to take care of my new cars and that means I wash them a lot.
6008:14341|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.
15386:17319|Thank you for taking your time.
17423:19670|I hope you will enjoy your new Volvo.
