The rearview camera on the new volvo xc 60 2016 is not reliable - it tends to become extremely hazy with even a slight rainfall and perhaps the positioning of the camera / the material used for the lenses are not ideal. We have had 4 cars from other manufacturers over the past 2-3 years and none of their visual quality degraded to the extent we are seeing it on the volvo xc 60. I have attached a couple of pictures showing what the images look like after a brief rainfall.

On wednesday, june 8, 2016, at 10:00 a.m., i put my car in park on my driveway. My car was stationary on my driveway when i exited it and went into my garage. When i turned around, my unoccupied car was coming toward me from the driveway into the garage. I was unable to get out of the way of the car and ended up pinned between the left wall of my garage, a recycle can, and the car. Fortunately, the car was rolling into the garage in a straight line, which left just enough space between my body, the car, and the wall; otherwise, i would have been crushed and killed. A large recycle trash can and a ladder stopped the car before it continued straight through the rear garage wall and into my family room where my disabled husband was sitting. A workman on my property, who witnessed the entire event, helped me get out of the space between the wall and car and removed the car from the garage. I must have been in a state of shock from the accident because i cannot remember some details and must have been hit by the car because i still have damage to my left leg and pain in my lower body; also, the car had damage to its left fender. I visited my doctor regarding the injury to my left leg and the pain to the lower part of my body. My husband notified volvo about the incident. The company had the car towed to its facility where it was run through a battery of tests. Even though the company claims that it found nothing wrong with the car and took no responsibility for the incident, i think that it is still important to report this incident in case it happens to someone else in the future. My unoccupied car moved forward from a stationary, parked position. I would not have been able to exit my car if it were placed in any other gear than park.

City safety brakes for no reason. When applying the brakes, brakes grab and car lunges forward, sometime the city safety message appears and other times it does not. I was breaking for a stop when this happened. Thought i was going to rear ended because of the sudden stop. This has happened several times. Has me worried if wife is driving. Dealer said there is no problem, not so!

My car stopped in the middle of the road with my child in the car; come to find out their is a starter recall associated with this year make and model, but not associated with my vin. After numerous other break downs this was confirmed by a mechanic that it is an issue. Volvo stated they could not find the issue unless my vehicle was throwing a code. Which it never did when and would not according to the mechanic due to this issue. Please assist me in getting this issue fixed under the previous recall please.

Component Seat belts
A letter was sent from volvo corp about a safety recall on seatbelts in august 2020 stating that parts would be available after nov 2020. I called the local dealer last week and apparently they do not have the parts to make the necessary repairs. I am very concerned for my safety while driving this vehicle. Currently, the drivers side seat belt is difficult to open with one click. It requires a few pushes to unlock the seat belt and this is our main concern. I called volvo corp this morning and they are unaware of any timeline of when the parts will be available. They have also made an error in stating the phone number for nhtsa in their letter to the public. The letter states 800-327-4236, which is incorrect.
