Using load carriers

Load carriers are available as Volvo accessories.

Observe the following points when in use:

Х To avoid damaging your vehicle and to achieve maximum safety when driving, we recommend using the load carriers that Volvo has developed especially for your vehicle.

Х Volvo-approved removable roof racks are designed to carry the maximum allowable roof load for this vehicle: 220 lbs (100 kg).

For non-Volvo roof racks, check the manufacturer's weight limits for the rack.

Х Never exceed the rack manufacturer's weigh limits and never exceed the maximum rated roof load of 220 lbs (100 kg).

Х Avoid single-point loads. Distribute loads evenly.

Х Place heavier cargo at the bottom of the load.

Х Secure the cargo correctly with appropriate tie-down equipment.

Х Check periodically that the load carriers and load are properly secured.

Х Remember that the vehicle's center of gravity and handling change when you carry a load on the roof.

Х The vehicle's wind resistance and fuel consumption will increase with the size of the load.

Х Drive smoothly. Avoid rapid starts, fast cornering and hard braking.
