    Volvo Car UK has issued a warning to owners of its cars to only use its technicians and parts, claiming it’s the only way to ensure the correct operation of its advanced driver assistance systems.

    Good old Volvo trying it on again. The genuine windscreen requirement is true as aftermarket screens can vary in density causing issues with the camera’s, but it’s not a Volvo main dealer only thing. As a Volvo specialist, we have Volvo’s dedicated diagnostic program, VIDA and this allows us to re calibrate the windscreen sensors should there be an issue after a windscreen has been replaced. Volvo should be supporting their specialist network, rather than sending customers to main dealers charging £150 per hour!

    Agree Graham, We are a Volvo specialist to with VIDA, We pay enough to VOLVO for the VIDA subscription yet we get very little support. We have customers that have brought cars here off the recommendation from a volvo dealer.
    They charge far too much,this sounds like something else to scare the customer into taking their vehicle into a dealer again!

    We have recently invested in Texa Adas Calibration equipment. As an independent garage we try to keep up with the latest technology to enable us to offer our customers these services.
