Re: Harman Kardon stereo?

Have you ever had any issues with the stereo? When I had my XC40 and it went in for screeching sounds from the door speakers they put a load of felt on the inside of the grills and it looked just like that. Awful. Nope, this is as per factory. I'm not sure if the grille comes off, or if they'll hav...

Used manual floor mats

Hey guys, I've got a set of rubber floor mats I bought for my XC40 a while back, they were only in use for about 3 or 4 weeks before I got rid of the car and now they're just sitting around in the shed doing nothing. They're genuine Volvo front and rear mats with the tunnel cover. Looking for £25 + ...

Re: Harman Kardon stereo?

https://i.imgur.com/4QjE9Uo.png Has anyone else noticed this happening? I thought it was dust collecting but I think I must have been vacuuming the material underneath through the gaps over the last few months. I clean my car every week which maybe doesn't help. No idea how to fix this! Hi Abby, th...

Re: upgrading from 8 speaker audio

Before I got rid of my car I was going to get the audio system completely redone at a specialist, there was one in South London who had worked on a current generation XC90 so knew how Volvo systems worked. It can be done of course. I wanted the air-woofer in the front deactivated, the subwoofer in t...

Re: Harman Kardon stereo?

hmm ok glad I have found this.. So I think the spacial audio is quite good left and right but it's VERY front heavy. The volume in general on my HK stereo is not great and during a call via Car Play at least, I can barely hear what is going on. Music wise it can go fairly loud but it isn't ear expl...

Re: Poll: Which engine/transmission are you looking at, or have purchased?

Had my RDesign T4 for 10 days now I am averaging 34mpg with mixed driving town and motorway used eco setting most of the time and considering it’s a new engine I am more than satisfied, after reading some of the horror stories on this forum mileage at present 295 Wow that's really good! I averaged ...

Re: T3 performance issues

We test drove a T3 manual (MY2019, so 150bhp) and a T5 auto. The T3 performed very similar to our current 2017 diesel Tiguan, if not a little quicker on the sprint. Obviously doesn't have the low down diesel grunt but still impressive for a small engine. We took the option of the MY2020 T3 manual (...

Re: My car is a turd.

Hi Senwar, that is exactly the noise I have. We went down to Cornwall a few weeks ago and it drove me mad the whole way down. Im really pedantic about rattles so the XC40 and I are not getting on very well! Good idea about the buyback as the values do seem to be incredibly strong. I'm the same with...

Re: Too many defects

It’s not a dealer issue... dealer and service should only recognise the fault and replace. The problem is from factory since there was no quality control in my case with so many defects. Really awful for a premium automaker. The sad side of the story is that I was told Rattles are normal and humidi...

Re: Can't wait to get rid

I'm also very very allergic to rattles and a bad audio system, especially with a new car ! So that would also be big issues for me, but hopefully it doesn't come that far. Myself I'm driving a new Peugeot 5008 and in the beginning it also had a rattle that drove me nuts but "we" (myself not the dea...
