General information

Shiftlock (automatic transmission) When your car is parked, the gear selector is locked in the Park (P) position. To release the selector from this position, turn the ignition key to position II (or start the engine), depress the brake pedal, press the button on the front side of the gear selector and move the selector from Park (P).

Keylock (automatic transmission) When the ignition is switched off, the gear selector must be in the Park (P) position before the key can be removed from the ignition switch.

Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) The ABS system in your car performs a self- diagnostic test when the vehicle first reaches the speed of approximately 12 mph (20 km/h). The brake pedal will pulsate several times and a sound may be audible from the ABS control module. This is normal.

Fuel filler door Press the button on the light switch panel when the car is at a standstill to open the fuel filler door.

Introduction

Volvo and the environment

Volvo is committed to the well being of its cus- tomers. As a natural part of this commitment, we care about the environment in which we all live. Caring for the environment means an everyday involvement in reducing our environ- mental impact. Volvo's environmental activities are based on a holistic view, which means we consider the overall environmental impact of a product throughout its complete life cycle. In this context, design, production, product use, and recycling are all important considerations. In production, Volvo has partly or completely phased out several chemicals including CFCs, lead chromates, asbestos, and cadmium; and reduced the number of chemicals used in our plants 50% since 1991. Volvo was the first in the world to introduce into production a three-way catalytic converter with a Lambda sond, now called the heated oxygen sensor, in 1976. The current version of this highly efficient system reduces emissions of harmful substances (CO, HC, NOx) from the exhaust pipe by approximately 95 – 99% and the search to eliminate the remaining emis- sions continues. Volvo is the only automobile manufacturer to offer CFC-free retrofit kits for the air conditioning system of all models as far back as the 1975 model 240. Advanced elec- tronic engine controls and cleaner fuels are bringing us closer to our goal. After Volvo vehi- cles and parts have fulfilled their use, recycling

cator) light illuminates, or stays on after the vehicle has started.

• Properly dispose of any vehicle-related

waste such as used motor oil, used batter- ies, brake pads, etc.

• When cleaning your vehicle, please use

genuine Volvo car care products. All Volvo car care products are formulated to be environmentally friendly.

WARNING

Certain components of this vehicle such as air bag modules, seat belt pretensioners, adaptive steering columns, and button cell batteries may contain Perchlorate material. Special handling may apply for service or vehicle end of life disposal. See www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/ perchlorate.

is the next critical step in completing the life cycle. The metal content is about 75% of the total weight of a vehicle, which makes the vehi- cle among the most recycled industrial prod- ucts. In order to have efficient and well- controlled recycling, dismantling information is available for all Volvo models. For Volvo, all homogeneous plastic parts weighing more than 3.4 oz. (100 grams) are marked with inter- national symbols that indicate how the com- ponent is to be sorted for recycling. In addition to continuous environmental refinement of conventional gasoline-powered internal com- bustion engines, Volvo is actively looking at advanced technology alternative-fuel vehicles. When you drive a Volvo, you become our part- ner in the work to lessen the car's impact on the environment. To reduce your vehicle's environmental impact, you can: • Maintain proper air pressure in your tires. Tests have shown decreased fuel econ- omy with improperly inflated tires.

• Follow the recommended maintenance schedule in your Warranty and Service Records Information booklet.

• Drive at a constant speed whenever pos-

sible.

• See a trained and qualified Volvo service technician as soon as possible for inspec- tion if the check engine (malfunction indi-

Accessory Installation • We strongly recommend that Volvo owners

install only genuine, Volvo-approved accessories, and that accessory installa- tions be performed only by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.

• Genuine Volvo accessories are tested to

ensure compatibility with the performance, safety, and emission systems in your vehi- cle. Additionally, a trained and qualified Volvo service technician knows where accessories may and may not be safely installed in your Volvo. In all cases, please consult a trained and qualified Volvo serv- ice technician before installing any acces- sory in or on your vehicle.

• Accessories that have not been approved

by Volvo may or may not be specifically tested for compatibility with your vehicle. Additionally, an inexperienced installer may not be familiar with some of your vehi- cle's systems.

• Any of your vehicle's performance and

safety systems could be adversely affec- ted if you install accessories that Volvo has not tested, or if you allow accessories to be installed by someone unfamiliar with your vehicle.

• Damage caused by unapproved or

improperly installed accessories may not be covered by your new vehicle warranty. See your Warranty and Service Records

Information booklet for more warranty information. Volvo assumes no responsi- bility for death, injury, or expenses that may result from the installation of nonge- nuine accessories.

Driver distraction • Driver distraction results from driver activ- ities that are not directly related to control- ling the vehicle in the driving environment. Your new Volvo is, or can be, equipped with many feature-rich entertainment and communication systems. These include hands-free cellular telephones, navigation systems, and multipurpose audio systems. You may also own other portable elec- tronic devices for your own convenience. When used properly and safely, they enrich the driving experience. Improperly used, any of these could cause a distraction.

• For all of these systems, we want to pro- vide the following warning that reflects the strong Volvo concern for your safety:

• Never use these devices or any feature of

your vehicle in a way that distracts you from the task of driving safely. Distraction can lead to a serious accident. In addition to this general warning, we offer the fol- lowing guidance regarding specific newer
