    Thanks for the replies.

    I had considered a lubricant, but was concerned that it might remain on the tab, and ruin clothing as it was buckled.

    In any event, I've never seen this before on any...

    I've searched online, and in this forum, and while I get several matches around a seat belt that won't retract, I'm not finding anything about the actual latch that is difficult to open.

    VIN Codes 90, 94, 95

    My 2012 XC70 is approaching 150K miles.

    In the service manual, they reference the auxiliary drive belt for "VIN codes 90, 94, 95".

    I've checked several online explanations of Volvo VINs, but...

    I do in mine, so appreciate the tip. That cover can indeed slide around, so I really wonder if that scenario occured. So far we've been fine with the new battery, but I'll pay close attention to...

    If it helps any, we just replaced the battery on our 2012 T6 about 1.5 months ago. It would appear to take a charge, but ultimately barely work with low battery warnings. We needed a jump start at...

    I think we're saying the same thing. The warranty provider is banking that the average purchaser will not need repairs valued even close to the policy cost. This ensures a valid business model.

    Love this approach, and completely agree.

    One caveat though: I would expect that on average, one should come out ahead. There's still the chance that you encounter extremely costly repairs. ...

    Got it - quickly scanned "reliability stats" and thus higher seemed "better".

    The 2006 stands out as an island in a sea of mediocrity. Any chance it's an anomoly, or is ther something about that MY that suggests better reliabilty?

    Common issue, unfortunately. Unsure though if it amounts to a connector/antenna issue, or new head unit as both have been cited as fixes.

    I bought TPMS sensors with the package when I got my winter tires and rims from tirerack. They've worked great, and there's no procedure for learning. I simply swap out the tires and all is fine. ...

    My guess is that folks on a Volvo forum would tend to recommend the Volvo - go figure.

    I have both an 09 S80 and a 2012 XC70 T6. The interiors are virtually identical in the first two rows, so the difference is really about ride height, AWD (if you consider a FWD S80) and rear cargo...

    I certainly would defer to the safety label, as would most of us.

    I am surprised though that the TPMS would get triggered at something as small as a 2 psi shortfall, but that is a side issue.

    I believe the cluster lighting is from the top of the gauges, and I don't recall the needles having lighting themselves. Has that upper lighting failed in your case?
