Volvos Through the Gorge - Volvo Car Cruise

It has been quite some time since we have been able to get together. During this unfortunate time everyone has been doing their best to navigate through unforeseen challenges. That’s why three prolific members of the Volvo community figured it would be best to partner up and host a car show before summer ends. IPD, Vol-Tech, and DLR Nordic got together and organized a car meet followed up by a drive through the majestic Columbia River Gorge ending up at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole in Bingen Washington. We hope you’ll join us for lunch. This is purely a gathering of enthusiasts looking to have some fun and chat about their Volvo. We look forward to seeing you September 25th!

SATURDAY 25th 8:30am


We will meet at IPD Volvo at 8:30am. If the main lot gets full we will start parking cars along Ainsworth Circle right outside of IPD’s driveway. For those who want to go for a drive through the Columbia River Gorge, we will leave IPD at 10AM. The caravan will hit I-205 North and then head out HWY 14 East to Bingen Washington (directly across from Hood River) For those of you joining us for lunch at Murphy’s Family Watering Hole you will receive a $5.00 off coupon.

Note***** IPD, DLR Nordic, and Vol-tech are not responsible for any incidents or accidents that may occur during this drive event. Everyone who attends will be driving and participating at their own risk.

    Just got purchased one of these and plan to keep for the long term. Looking forward to getting tips and tricks for this model. I may want to change oil more frequently (every 5k) and would love to see a tutorial for that to start with. Along with cabin/air filter to prep for out of warranty period. BTW - I went with Thule Evo Flush Mount rack system with Wingbars (for less noise). The 53” bars do work fine over the 47 “ recommended giving a little more load space up top.

    Hello, I also bought a 2020 momentum in January. I have changed the oil at 5k. Here are some observations:
    • You cannot use ramps to prop up the car. The body work is too low. Have to use jack stands
    • You need to unscrew about 8 torx head screws to remove the plastic cover.
    • The oil filter housing is next to the oil pan. The housing has a screw to assist in draining the oil out of the housing. Use a cap type oil filter wrench to unscrew the housing.
    • I believe the drain plug is 15mm.
    • According to volvo service bulletins, you should use only a 0w-20 synthetic oil that is specially formulated for volvo. Liqui-Moly makes such an oil.
    • Oil capacity is 5 liters.
    Hope this helps.
