XC90 2.5T AWD L5-2.5L Turbo VIN 59 B5254T2 (2003)
request, may result in warranty claim denial by Volvo.
TEST DRIVE NOTES:
The test drive should be done as follows: Accelerate rapidly up to 50 mph, noting how the car behaves during acceleration. Then hold the car at 50 mph
long enough to note how it behaves during steady driving.
Then place the transmission in neutral and let the car freewheel, carefully noting how the car behaves the instant you put the gear in neutral: do the side
forces reduce or disappear, or are they the same?
Vehicles always have a tendency to veer towards the edge of a crowned road. This tendency will make the car pull towards the side when driving in the
"normal" traffic lane. To verify if there is a fault in the car, drive it on a perfectly flat road, or on a road which is crowned in the other direction. This
might best be accomplished on a multi-lane road which has road crowns in both the left lane (to the left) and right lane (to the right).
