Volvo S60’s crash detection system is driving me round the bend..


It’s blowing a gale here in the Cotswolds – oddly there isn’t an alarm in the S60 for high winds and debris on the road because it seems to have a warning system for everything else!

And the alarm I like least is the ‘collision warning system’ that flashes a line of red lights along the bottom of the windscreen when an impending ‘head-on’ looms.

This is obviously a sound idea – in most situations. However, if you are passing around a sweeping bend in the Volvo and a parked vehicle is detected by the roadside, the alarm goes off.

This is quite disturbing, annoying and extremely distracting. I’m not sure how Volvo can solve the problem but it’s happened three times this week already….
