I have several issues with my 2001 S60 2.4T. Some are minor annoyances to\nwhich I have learned to adapt my driving; others are to be expected,\nalthough perhaps not in the ways manifested; and a couple issues have\nsurfaced recently that have me concerned. I would appreciate comments or\nsuggestions related to any or all of these issues:\n\n1. Front tires rub the wheel wells near maximum turning radius. I bought\nthe 17" wheel package that included wider tires, so I suspect that the car\nisn't quite engineered for this option or that wide of a tire -\- or is this\nan issue with all of the tire options? I've adapted by anticipating a wider\nturning radius as I maneuver the vehicle to avoid rubbing.\n\n2. Car "slams" into gear if accelerating too soon coming out of a turn. It\ndoesn't happen every time, but I think I've identified several factors,\nincluding temperature, duration of braking prior to the turn, and speed.\nThe symptom is that if I brake before a turn, ease up on the brake entering\nthe turn, then jump immediately to the accelerator, the car will sometimes\nthud and shudder as it engages the appropriate gear. My understanding from\nthe manual is that to prolong clutch life, the car is taken out of gear when\nbraking (not sure what parameters are around this), so I have imagined that\ntoo rapid of a transition from brake to accelerator under certain\ncircumstances is what is causing the car to slam into gear. I have found\nthat if I essentially roll through the turn, giving the car a second or two\nbetween brake and accelerator, I do not encounter this issue. This has also\noccurred several times when in creeping traffic, where I might be using\nvariable pressure on the brake pedal as I inch forward slowly. Does this\nmake sense, or have I created an elaborate fiction to explain away a defect?\n\n3. Intermittent position light failure. This vehicle seems to be especially\nhard on its bulbs. I imagined the intermittent nature of this problem was\ndue to a broken filament that managed to somehow reconnect, perhaps through\nvibration, and becoming temporarily fused to complete the circuit. I had\none bulb that routinely would fail and heal itself, until it finally did\nexpire. The dealer replaced all of the bulbs. Perhaps two or three months\nlater, I had another couple failure/self-healing cycles -\- and haven't had a\nproblem since!\n\n4. Door locks do not always engage. This has been an intermittent problem\nwith only the rear passenger side door. I first believed that maybe the\nelectronic motor failed, but after manually lifting and depressing the lock\nplunger, it began again to respond to the key fob and cabin button. It has\nstopped working on several other occasions, but manipulating the plunger a\nfew times will resume operation. I imagined it might be a lubrication\nissue, but the plunger seems to move freely without binding.\n\n5. Cruise Control intermittently disengages when set. I have become quite\nadept at turning on the cruise control and setting the speed in one fluid\nmotion. One day, I set the cruise and the car began to slow down. I looked\nand saw that the cruise control was not on. Furthermore, it could not be\nturned on -\- it was completely non-responsive. My first assumption was that\nthe cruise control assembly on the steering wheel had simply failed.\nHowever, after turning the car off and restarting it, the cruise control was\nactive again. Since then, this failure occurs about 20 - 30% of the time,\nbut I have not been able to notice any patterns. It does, however, seem to\nhappen with less frequency if I wait 3-4 second after turning the cruise\ncontrol before setting it. What happens is that the cruise control\nindicator will illuminate when cruise control is turned on; however, as soon\nas I set the cruise speed, the indicator goes off and this sub-system is\ndead, until resetting by turning the car off. I had it in to the dealer for\nthis problem, and they indicated that the computer did not log any events\nwhen this happens.\n\n6. Engine System Service Required indicator; rough idle; stall on restart.\nAs described here, this problem appears to be directly related to the cruise\ncontrol issue noted above, as the timing was spot on with attempting to set\nthe cruise control. The situation occurred today and began as noted above:\nI turned on the cruise and set it. However, for the first time, just as the\ncruise control disengaged and failed, I immediately got the message Engine\nSystem Service Required. I was on the interstate at the time, and noted no\nproblems with the performance of the vehicle. Engine temperature was\nnominal and no other indicators suggested problems involving oil pressure,\nvoltage, etc. No problems were detected until I left the interstate and\ncame to about my 4th stop on secondary roads. At that point, the engine\nstarted to idle very roughly and I feared it would stall. Disengaging the\nA/C allowed the idle to stabilize and I continued on to my final\ndestination. When I arrived and turned off the car, I full well expected\nthe problem to disappear as readily as the cruise control issue has after\nbeing reset. However, it did not. The car starts with the Engine System\nService Required, it idles rough, and even with the A/C disengaged, the\nengine stalls at idle.
