Unbelievable they want to make you pay an extremely high fee for this after the introductory period. If they would build it into the cost of a car I wouldn't even blink, but they try to rob you blind six months after buying the car! Honestly it leaves me with an entirely terrible taste in my mouth about purchasing this brand new XC90.
Not Reliable I've had this for almost 2 weeks. Hopefully things will get better. Remote start sometimes works but usually doesnt. I just get a message that says the engine failed to start. Sometimes when it does work, it tells me it didn't. I also randomly get notifications that my car is unlocked. When I check, it is actually locked. I told my dealership who looked into it, they said there had been some service outages the last couple days. Not much of an explanation really.
Doors are unlocked function has quit working. Remote start works. . . sometimes. I just sent Volvo $250 to extend this service and it isn't worth a plugged nickel. I agree with all the others who say Volvo needs much better software engineers.
Problem with remote starter This app has a lot of problems. I was lucky to be able to turn the car on maybe once out of every 30 times. . It's a new new car which is only 60 days old. I have called the on-call system 10 times. They never resolve the issues. If I knew the remote starter is not working I would have bought an Acura MDX.
The functions of this app are so inconsistent that I find it completely useless. For example, I locked my '17 XC90 T6 last night around 8pm. Around 1:45am my phone rings/vibrates twice to tell me my Volvo is unlocked. It's not unlocked. It's locked. When it actually is unlocked, I press the "Lock" button. Does it lock the vehicle? 90% of the time, no. It tells me "Could not lock your Volvo at this time". Remote start is the same story. It doesn't work more often than it does. The app is useless and for a $65k car that's pretty pathetic. I hope they get their act together and fix this as this problem has been going on for too long. A cheap Ford will have better connectivity.
Unreliable Just bought my brand new Volvo and this app was touted by the dealer as amazing. Wish it were. When I try the remote start, it always gives me an error message. It actually started a couple times after a dozen attempts but still had the error message. I also get messages that my car is unlocked. But it's locked and secure. It also wont trigger the horn or lights.Hoping they fix the bugs on this one ! Otherwise, I would never buy it. I'm giving it 2 stars because I would Love it and am hoping they'll fix it.
