Function  - Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) - Towing a trailer - During your trip - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

A vehicle towing a trailer may begin to sway for various reasons. Normally this only occurs at high speeds but, for example, if the trailer is overloaded or if the load is unevenly distributed in the trailer, there is risk of swaying at speeds between approximately 45-55 mph (70-90 km/ h).

Swaying may be caused by factors such as:
The vehicle and trailer are hit by a sudden, strong crosswind
The vehicle and trailer are traveling on an uneven road surface or drive over a bump
Sudden movements of the steering wheel
