Recently, a Consumer Class Action Lawsuit was filed against Volvo as owners and lessees of numerous 2014, 2016, and 2017 Volvo XC90s have reported that the Sensus Technology in their cars are not compatible with Android Auto, even though this was advertised by Volvo. The Volvo Class Action Lawsuit has taken on some merit, as more and more attorneys have begun to look into the matter. Here’s what we know about the Volvo Lawsuit and Android Auto issue:
First off, Android Auto allows drivers to pair their Android phone with their vehicle so drivers can answer calls, stream music, utilize GPS, and access other mobile applications through their touchscreen console or buttons on the steering wheel. In sum, it allows the driver to use aspects of their phone without having to fumble around for it.
Unfortunately, however, XC90s without a second USB port are not compatible with Android Auto and do not operate on Sensus. This includes all 2014 and 2016 model years and some 2017 models. Moreover, Volvo has stated that these cars cannot be retrofitted to provide for compatibility. As a result, many owners and lessees have complained that they were misled into choosing the XC90 because of this promised but not delivered functionality.
