I can't speak for Volvo, but when I worked for "a large US automaker" (less than 6 months ago) we still did thisYears ago I was involved in a user feedback experience when they paid people to come in and showed us potential interiors for a car (was clearly Chrysler, even though emblems were covered) and we were asked numerous questions about each proposed interior. Do they do this any more? Maybe, but with the tight timelines I doubt it.
You are extremely optimistic about this. I think they will fix some of this, but am sure other bugs will persist as will new one with all the stuff they still have to implement.Bugs are awful. It will get better. Spotify now refusing to load. I decide not to restart anything and locked the car. I am sure it will be fine in the morning. The other day during the floods GPS went. It was fine after locking the car overnight. Spotify has clicking sounds coming like it is loading data. The app itself has bugs perhaps. It feels like I am back in early 90s with all buggy windows and other software, thank gosh we do need to use 35 floppy disks to install OS update. Anyway 2,600 kilometers and counting.
I believe next year we will have major update that will change things for better. I hope more power too.
I totally agree. Volvo is a tick on Google. But I read somewhere that GM and Ford are also on board with AAOS. That would be good for Volvo as the base OS will improve, probably rather quickly.Volvo apparently does not have the clout with Google to demand a truly functional product delivered in anything resembling a reasonable timeframe. That is worrying, since Volvo is going all-in with AAOS.
they both should be embarrassed at the state of their product that’s been out on the market for going on a year.
We haven’t had my wife’s XC40 for long, but we had one glitch shortly after we bought it. My wife parked the car and when she left work all was good.I totally agree. Volvo is a tick on Google.

The most worrying thing to me is all this talk of the car healing itself when you lock it overnight. That smells a lot like the system is automatically rebooting. If true, that would be truly awful because it means the developers have no idea why things are breaking and so they just restart whenever they can.
I have an order I placed from the port allotment that is supposed to be delivered in days. I love the car, but what I've seen of the software so far worries me. I want to think it will get better, but experience tells me the people involved with its development are not up to the task. I'm seriously considering asking for my deposit back.
They are because we consumers accept it. Many people bought Tesla because of the status even knowing and hearing all the issues. Knowing all the issues with auto pilot people still risk it. I have said this before, the early adopters are more likely to tolerate this, but mainstream consumers will run away. Let’s see XC60 feedback in 6-12 months on the 22s with AAOS. While I like my car if consumer reports sent me a survey (good thing I did not renew) the XC40 P8 would get roasted.We haven’t had my wife’s XC40 for long, but we had one glitch shortly after we bought it. My wife parked the car and when she left work all was good.
Unfortunately glitches are part of the EV world. There are days the LTE in my Tesla takes several minutes to start working, WiFi randomly stops working, screen stops responding, etc. A reboot always fixes the issues though.
I think we blame Volvo because we all know AAOS is immature and not fully baked. I don’t blame Volvo because the YouTube Music app sucks, I blame Google and double blame as it is their app on their OS. I have not had Spotify issue, if I did I would blame Spotify and Google. My blame to Volvo is releasing the car with AAOS and then making statements that even this platform is not their final platform, so how much development will go into this long term? Again 3-5 years from now when Google says these version of AAOS are no longer supported where does that leave people that buy a car every 10 years? At least everyone else is releasing their EVs on their go forward platforms that will have some life to them. I think we all know the current Volvo CMA is a transitional platform and I doubt we will see much else released on it. The VW and Hyundai platform will support many models based on it.Glitches are part of the high tech world … this car just arrived in that world.
A question. If a 3rd party app did not work on your iPhone properly (has bugs missing features etc) would you be annoyed at Apple and the iPhone or would you blame the app owner?
Why is it we blame third party software apps problems on Volvo? For example Spotify. Is not the problem Spotify’s? Or is it Volvo’s responsibility to put pressure on the app developers?
