Not sure about the auxiliary heater.

I know remote start wasn’t an option on a 2011 car. Remote start being you can start the car with the key from inside your house/at a distance & wait for the engine/heater to warm up before you get in the car.

One thing i forgot to mention is that it also has PCC but apart from telling me if the car is locked etc, i don't really understand what else it does.

Not very much really. In essence, its just a square key.

The aux heater was an option for cold climate markets - I don't think it was offered to the UK. It's an independent diesel or petrol powered engine & cabin heater, i.e the engine doesn't need to run for it to work. It heats and circulates the engine coolant and turns the interior fan on. I think it was made by Eberspacher...

PCC came with the keyless entry / start option, you just need the fob in your pocket.

ACC also had Collision Warning with Automatic Brake packaged with it, so it does an emergency brake procedure if you don't react when for example a car in front has stopped in a motorway traffic queue - that's useful to have

Yes it does have keyless entry as well, although i am not sure on keyless start?

Was that an additional option or was it all part of the PCC package?

Shame about the aux heater but not the end of the world really.


Also, what is it with nearly all of them having the drooping rear wiper?

Do i just need to remove the arm and realign it or is it the motor thats on its way out?

Yes, keyless entry and keyless start all in the same package. But that doesn't mean you can start it from your house to warm it up unfortunately - you still need to be in it and push the button!

Lovely drive back today, very smooth and relaxing.

Only thing i did notice was a slight clonk going in to first at a junction which i never picked up on the test drive, although the gearbox was probably not up to temp when i drove it.

With that, ill get an fluid change done asap and hope that sorts it at Horton cars although i have an ODB scanner coming so ill plug that in and see if that throws up any problems.

Got the price of a cam belt change off the car and my local Volvo dealer is going to do that, tensioner and aux belts so that is result, along with a health check.

the only odd thing i have found so far is the footwell lighting is on the drivers side. It looks like there should be one on the passenger side as there appears to be a cut out for it, but no wiring as far as i could see.

Also, the Xenon headlights are not great on dipped beam, although i suspect a new pair of bulbs will cure that as i don't really know how long they have been in there, so i have ordered a pair of Philips Xtreme Vision Gen2 Xenon lamps, along with a pair of matching H7 for the additional Main beam units.

I did also put some new Bosch Aero Twin wiper blades on it as the ones that were on there had Volvo stamped on them and almost looked like they were the originals from the factory!

And the rear wiper arm droops so i'll look into that as its very loose in the park position and can be moved down below the glass.
