New Volvo is so bad that Martin has to cheat it

The safety systems and alarms in the new Volvo EX30 are so poor that Martin Hedlund has cheated the car with a homemade shield to stop the howling.

The new Volvo EX30 may not be the huge success it was heralded for at its premiere.

The reception in the world press has been lukewarm to say the least. And the drivers aren't thrilled either. It is especially the security systems, which constantly make mistakes, that are annoying.

One of the Volvo EX30 owners who have taken matters into their own hands is Swedish Martin Hedlund. He tells this in an interview to Vi Bilägare .

The owners of the Chinese car have simply chosen to put an end to the false alarms by blocking the sensor.

In the same article, a researcher criticizes that the car brands' technology is apparently so poor that drivers have to disregard their own safety and the safety of others on the roads.

But Martin Hedlund is far from alone in his critical attitude towards the latest Volvo. Wired, for example, describes the car as 'one you don't want to test the 0-100 km/h time in'.

Among other things, due to the faulty sensors and safety systems. Not even at Danish FDM are they particularly keen on the car's warning systems howling all the time. For example, it triggers a warning if you look at the car's built-in screen.

Conversely, it is not just Volvo that receives criticism for many – and new – safety systems. The EU's mandatory speed limiters are accused of making new cars a hell of warning sounds. Read more about it here .
