I'm in correspondence with Volvo Customer Services re: the issue that has already been identified on this and other forums viz:
- Stop/start functions as expected (brake to a halt, engine stops, removing foot from footbrake causes engine to restart)
- Stop/start with auto-hold functions as expected (brake to a halt, engine stops, removing foot from footbrake does not cause engine to restart, restart requires use of the accelerator)
- Stop/start with auto-hold and the speed limiter engaged does not function as expected (brake to a halt, engine stops, removing foot from footbrake causes engine to restart, rather than requiring the use of the accelerator as above)
Given that I use auto-hold and speed-limiter as a matter of course, I find this inconsistent, illogical and frustrating (as at least a few other people apparently do).
As others have reported it, it isn't an issue peculiar to my vehicle, and I wonder how widespread it is, and the level of frustration in those that have identified it (until you realise the symptoms are consistent with the use of the speed-limiter, it can appear that the stop/start with auto-hold function is rather random).
If anyone would like to confirm that they have the same issue (and particularly if they find it as irksome as I do) it may help me progress it with Volvo if they could respond, and I can point Customer Services to the resulting responses.
