Change of ownership when the Volvo Cars app* is linked to the car

In the event of a change of ownership, there are some steps that need to be taken to unlink the previous owner and give the new owner the option to connect the Volvo Cars app to the car.

Selling the car

The previous owner needs to remove the link between the car and the Volvo Cars app. When the ownership is ended, an automatic factory reset of the car takes place, so that profiles, user data, linked keys and personal settings, etc., are removed.

Buying a car

The new owner needs to connect the Volvo Cars app to the car.
