2006 Volvo V50 2 0 0 6 VOLVO V50 pg. 114 All Wheel Drive (option) All Wheel Drive (AWD) - general information Your Volvo can be equipped with permanent All Wheel Drive (option), which means that power is distributed automatically between the front and rear wheels. Under normal driving conditions, most of the engine's power is directed to the front wheels. However, if there is any tendency for the front wheels to spin, an electronically controlled coupling distributes power to the wheels that have the best traction. Tire dimensions Volvo recommends that you always drive on tires of the same brand, size, construction (radial), tread pattern, load-, speed-, traction-, temperature-, and treadwear rating. Never drive on mixed tires, except for brief periods when the temporary spare tire is in use. Always use properly inflated tires of correct dimensions. Tire size and inflation pressures are shown on the tire pressure label located inside the fuel filler door. Temporary Spare The temporary spare tire is for temporary, low speed, short-distance use only. Replace it with a full- sized tire as soon as possible. Do not drive on the temporary spare at speeds above 50 m.p.h. (80 km/h) or for distances greater than 50 miles (80 km). Never install snow chains on a temporary spare. pg. 115 Brake system Brake system Brake circuit malfunction The brake system is a hydraulic system consisting of two separate brake circuits. If a problem should occur in one of these circuits, it is still possible to stop the vehicle with the other brake circuit. If the brake pedal must be depressed farther than normal and requires greater foot pressure, the stopping distance will be longer. A warning light in the instrument panel will light up to warn the driver that a fault has occurred. If this light comes on while driving or braking, stop immediately and check the brake fluid level in the reservoir NOTE: Press the brake pedal hard and maintain pressure on the pedal - do not pump the brakes. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2006/2006_V50/06v50_07b.htm (1 of 15)12/30/2006 4:49:37 PM
