Re: Wheels 19 or 20 inch

I went from 21” to 19” and what a huge difference in terms of ride quality. Have not regretted it in the slightest. Also, in snow superb.

Re: Remote start activates alarm

I have just got my car back from 3 month check up.
Hey presto, I can now remotely start without the alarm sounding.
There were software updates which have sorted the problem.

Re: XC-40 performance in heavy snow

I am in the Highlands of Scotland and have had loads of snow. I have not put winter tyres on yet and think I may not bother. The car has performed brilliantly in pretty thick snow. I have not even used the off-road mode. I am suitably chuffed!!

Re: Remote start activates alarm

My temporary fix is to deactivate the interior alarm sensor the night before. It works but a) I have to remember to do this and b) it makes the car less secure. I have booked my car in for 3 month check and have referred the issue to the dealer. I shall let you all know if the problem is resolved.. ...

Polestar Certification

Just wondering whether or not those that have been Polestarred have registered with Polestar?

I have just received my certificate.
Also, are you happy with Polestar?

Re: Remote start activates alarm

I only use one key and one set of settings. I referred this to Volvo and they had not heard of the problem. They suggested that this be referred to the dealer. If Volvo had not heard of the problem, I wonder what chance the dealer has in fixing it? Tonight, I reduced the internal alarm sensitivity. ...
