Good to know that improvements can be made if one has a car that is badly affected.

I'm one of those that picks up on all sounds and issues that shouldn't be there but have recently retired so most journeys won't be long or at sustained speeds.

Ironically one of the reasons I'm moving from Skoda and the rest of the VW Group is because of ongoing issues with their 1.5 petrol engine which was going to be my choice!

Many thanks for that, I will contact my dealership to see how far they have got. At least if Volvo accept there is a problem, then there should be progress.

Yep, good to see progress being made. Shame there was a problem in the first place as vibrations are like a bad smell - once you've tuned into it, it never fully leaves.

There's an interesting new software update just been released - it's common to see engine management & transmission tweaks included within a wider update but, this one is focused solely in this area. Anyone think this may be related to vibration issues?

Updates from and including July 2019
Improvement of the AWD system's optimisation.
Improvement of the engine management system's optimisation.
Improvement of the transmission system's optimisation.
