    Success with the Windshield/Roof Recall in Central Ohio?

    I’m still trying to locate a dealer in Central Ohio to complete the windshield and roof recall. Has anyone had success having it done? If so, which dealership did you use? Thnaks!

    To me, this paragraph sounds like curb rash is covered. Couldn‘t curb rash be defined as a “scrape”? c) If an alloy, aluminum, or steel wheel suffers Cosmetic Damage as defined below, We will authorize the repair of the Cosmetic Damage.

    How do you calculate Battery Degradation?

    Good to know. If you’re close to selling the car, let’s say, a month or so, will it matter if your account is locked? Recurrent makes it sound like the information they provide, can help sell it for more, as long as the battery hasn’t degraded too much. Just wondering?

    How do you calculate Battery Degradation?

    Recurrent offers this service. I remember seeing some discussion about it on the forum. As I recall, some people were concerned about privacy, since you need to give them access to your vehicle‘s data. https://www.recurrentauto.com/

    Job 1 owners - are you getting the numbered OTA updates?

    Build date 2/5/21, not EA. I had 2.8.1 update successfully this morning. It was scheduled for 11:05 last night, but it said the car wasn’t available. I don’t know why, because it was parked in my garage, as usual. I was able to use “Update Now” this morning, and it worked. Thanks for your...

    Mach-E vs. 2024 Volvo EX90 - design, specs, price

    I thought the same, but just read that the higher amperage that it can take, 600 amps, is what allows for the 250 kW charging speed, without resorting to 800 volts. But, since CSS chargers are usually limited to 350 amps, you’ll need to find one rated for more, to take advantage of the 250kW...

    Mach-E vs. 2024 Volvo EX90 - design, specs, price

    I’ve been waiting for a 3-row SUV. I put a deposit on the EX90, but could end up with the EV9 or Ioniq 7. I watched the reveal, and was impressed with the tech and features. I‘m also a supporter of Volvo’s mission and sustainability goals.
