Please keep the following warnings in mindwhen operating/servicing your vehicle.
A driver has a responsibility to do everything pos-sible to ensure his or her own safety and thesafety of passengers in the vehicle and otherssharing the roadway. Avoiding distractions is partof that responsibility.
Driver distraction results from driver activities thatare not directly related to controlling the vehiclein the driving environment. Your new Volvo is, orcan be, equipped with many feature-rich enter-tainment and communication systems. Theseinclude hands-free cellular telephones, navigationsystems, and multipurpose audio systems. Youmay also own other portable electronic devicesfor your own convenience. When used properlyand safely, they enrich the driving experience.Improperly used, any of these could cause a dis-traction.
For all of these systems, we want to provide thefollowing warning that reflects the strong Volvoconcern for your safety. Never use these devicesor any feature of your vehicle in a way that dis-tracts you from the task of driving safely. Distrac-tion can lead to a serious accident. In addition tothis general warning, we offer the following guid-ance regarding specific newer features that maybe found in your vehicle:
•Never use a hand-held cellular telephonewhile driving. Some jurisdictions prohibitcellular telephone use by a driver whilethe vehicle is moving.
•If your vehicle is equipped with a naviga-tion system, set and make changes toyour travel itinerary only with the vehicleparked.
•Never program your audio system whilethe vehicle is moving. Program radio pre-sets with the vehicle parked, and use yourprogrammed presets to make radio usequicker and simpler.
•Never use portable computers or per-sonal digital assistants while the vehicleis moving.
•We strongly recommend that Volvo ownersinstall only genuine, Volvo-approved acces-sories, and that accessory installations beperformed only by a trained and qualifiedVolvo service technician.
•Genuine Volvo accessories are tested toensure compatibility with the performance,safety, and emission systems in your vehicle.Additionally, a trained and qualified Volvoservice technician knows where accessoriesmay and may not be safely installed in yourVolvo. In all cases, please consult a trained
and qualified Volvo service technician beforeinstalling any accessory in or on your vehicle.
•Accessories that have not been approved byVolvo may or may not be specifically testedfor compatibility with your vehicle. Addition-ally, an inexperienced installer may not befamiliar with some of your car's systems.
•Any of your car's performance and safetysystems could be adversely affected if youinstall accessories that Volvo has not tested,or if you allow accessories to be installed bysomeone unfamiliar with your vehicle.
•Damage caused by unapproved or improperlyinstalled accessories may not be covered byyour new vehicle warranty. See your Warrantyand Service Records Information booklet formore warranty information.

The driver is always responsible for operatingthe vehicle in a safe manner and for comply-ing with current statutes and regulations.
It is also essential to maintain and service thevehicle according to Volvo's recommendationsas stated in the owner's information and theservice and warranty booklet.
If the on-board information differs from theprinted owner's manual, the printed informa-tion always takes precedence.
•Volvo Structural Parts Statement (p. 30)
Volvo Structural Parts Statement
Volvo has always been and continues to be aleader in automotive safety.
Volvo engineers and manufactures vehiclesdesigned to help protect vehicle occupants in theevent of a collision.
Volvos are designed to absorb the impact of acollision. This energy absorption system including,but not limited to, structural components such asbumper reinforcement bars, bumper energyabsorbers, frames, rails, fender aprons, A-pillars,B-pillars and body panels must work together tomaintain cabin integrity and protect the vehicleoccupants.
The supplemental restraint system including butnot limited to air bags, side curtain air bags, anddeployment sensors work together with theabove components to provide proper timing forair bag deployment.
Due to the above, Volvo Car USA does not sup-port the use of aftermarket, alternative or any-thing other than original Volvo parts for collisionrepair.
Volvo Car USA also recommends using Volvo-approved replacement glass. The use of after-market glass, particularly a windshield, can havean adverse effect on collision avoidance andadvanced lighting systems.
In addition Volvo does not support the use or re-use of structural components from an existing
vehicle that has been previously damaged.Although these parts may appear equivalent, it isdifficult to tell if the parts have been previouslyreplaced with non-OE parts or if the part hasbeen damaged as a result of a prior collision. Thequality of these used parts may also have beenaffected due to environmental exposure.

Crash event data
This vehicle is equipped with an event datarecorder (EDR). The main purpose of an EDR isto record, in certain crash or near crash-like sit-uations, such as an air bag deployment or hittinga road obstacle, data that will assist in under-standing how a vehicle's systems performed.The EDR is designed to record data related tovehicle dynamics and safety systems for a shortperiod of time, typically 30 seconds or less. TheEDR in this vehicle is designed to record suchdata as:
•How various systems in your vehicle wereoperating;
•Whether or not the driver and passengersafety belts were buckled/fastened;
•How far (if at all) the driver was depressingthe accelerator and/or brake pedal; and,
•How fast the vehicle was traveling.
These data can help provide a better understand-ing of the circumstances in which crashes andinjuries occur.
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if anon-trivial crash situation occurs; no data arerecorded by the EDR under normal driving condi-tions and the EDR never registers who is drivingthe vehicle or the location of a crash or a nearcrash-like situation. However, other parties, suchas law enforcement, could combine the EDR datawith the type of personally identifying data rou-
tinely acquired during a crash investigation. Toread data recorded by an EDR, special equipmentis required, and access to the vehicle or the EDRis needed.
Furthermore, your vehicle is equipped with anumber of computers whose task is to continu-ously control and monitor the vehicle
