#1495 of 1503 Radiator Flush and Fill
Aug 23, 2012 (5:28 pm)
Everytime I bring one of my Volvo's to the dealer, they really sell me hard on getting a radiator and flush and fill. Are these ever necessary or are they just trying to get more money during my service visit?
#1497 of 1503 Wheel alignment

Does anybody believe in getting wheel alignments as part of our preventative maintenance, i.e., even if you aren't experiencing problems with the car pulling?
#1501 of 1503 Car Locking By Itself without touching the key
Feb 04, 2013 (6:53 pm)
We have a 2007 XC90 and there is some issue where the car locks itself. It happens when the key is not in the ignition. I'll get out of the car and without pushing anything on the key fab it will lock. Then it will not unlock unless you hit lock, then unlock.
It happens all the time....Sometimes 30 minutes to an hour after getting out of the car and parking it in our garage. We rarely lock the car in our garage but we almost always find it locked.
- Seems to happen more often in the cold
- Seems to be an issue with the car (educated guess) and not the key as it locks itself even when the key is completely out of range

Thanks in Advance to anyone that can add any thoughts or guesses....I have had a Volvo "expert" look at it and he has not been able to determine what is causing it.
Anybody have any ideas on how to test or narrow down the issue?

I recently purchased a new 2013 xc90 two months ago. I have the exact same problem as you. I've complained to the dealership this issue and they said it is normal. I'm going to back to the volvo service shop next week so please share your experience with me if you fix the problem. Thank you.
