2022 Volvo XC40 - Sleek compact luxury crossover SUV

The 2022 Volvo XC40, a compact luxury crossover SUV, has gained popularity since its release.

However, like any vehicle, it has its share of flaws. Many owners of the 2022 Volvo XC40 have reported specific problems, especially related to the electrical system and braking.

If you're facing these issues, it's crucial to understand your lemon law rights and take action to seek compensation. Let us, the experienced lemon law attorneys, guide you through the process and fight for your rights.

Electrical System Problems

Numerous owners of the 2022 Volvo XC40 have encountered electrical problems. One common issue involves the propulsion system, as reported by an owner to NHTSA. The vehicle unexpectedly lurched, displayed a “Propulsion system failure” message, and required towing. Despite dealership visits, the root cause remains unknown, posing potential risks if the automatic deceleration protocol activates during regular driving.

Another electrical problem involves the blind spot monitoring system. Owners have experienced false alerts indicating a vehicle's presence in the blind spot when none exists or failing to warn when a vehicle is actually present. These issues can create confusion and compromise safety while changing lanes.

Additionally, some XC40 owners have reported rear camera problems. In one instance, the brightness of the taillights obstructed the driver's vision while using the backup camera at night, potentially leading to accidents or collisions.

Braking Problems

Braking problems have also plagued 2022 Volvo XC40 owners. One owner in Florida experienced an abrupt hard-brake stop without any apparent obstructions. Such “phantom braking” incidents raise concerns about the reliability of the forward collision system.

Another owner reported unexpected braking incidents even after disabling the collision avoidance system, risking the driver's safety in various driving conditions.

  • Breach of Express Warranty Claim: Manufacturers must uphold the promises made in their warranties. If they fail to do so, you may have grounds for this claim.
  • Deceptive Practices Claim: Misleading or deceptive actions by the manufacturer or dealer could entitle you to compensation under deceptive practices laws.
  • Magnuson-Moss Act Claim: Federal law safeguards consumers who purchase products with warranties, ensuring fairness and remedies for defects.
