Re: Thinking about the XC40 - issues?

Chapmans at York or Malton for me. A neighbour's (XC70) and my XC40 are looked after by them. We live 30 miles away but beleive it's worth it as nearer main dealers do not meet our criteria!

Re: Fuelling with 2 flaps

Success! The refurbed Morrisons at Guiseley (LS20 8PS) has now reopened, and the snouts are visibly extended by 2", so they must read this forum! Meanwhile the other local Morrisons petrol station is out of bounds for me. Thanks for to all for what could have been a saga, but wasn't! Bhowani 2 Ins P...

Re: Fuelling with 2 flaps

Morrisons at Guiseley has just refurbed, so I will try there later in the week, and see if they have pumps with long "snouts" which is what I think is the cause. The other makes I mentioned seem to have very short ones and only just reach the second flap. Not tried SHELL yet! Otherwise, super dooper...

Fuelling with 2 flaps

Greetings Has anybody "cracked" fuelling an XC40 yet with Esso or Moririsons fuel pumps. It is currently taking taking 20 MINUTES to put 10 gallons in (sorry I am a Dinosaur). Yep, I have the BIG instruction book (£30!) and am doing what I am told. Should I defect to SHELL? Thank you Bhowani T4 Ins ...

Re: MPG - Again :-)

T4 auto: 5 weeks and 1111 in! Around 31 mpg overall in comfort mode. Would never dream of using the more brutal modes as HMRC get enough off me!

Re: Rear View Camera

My XC40, a week in, is much improved by the rear view camera. You have to get used to the perspective it offers, but well worth the extra outlay.

Re: New XC40

Well done!

As a matter of interest, when did you order your T4? I am in the queue, and hoping to receive my T4 before the waves of Brexit break over the UK.

Re: Eagerly Waiting

It's all rather strange. Brought up when cars were £XX 12 s 9d I have not started panicing YET! My dealer said mid March, and he recently confirmed that that date stands: he knows I would like to avoid April for obvious reasons. Yes, the trade in price might have to be adjusted but so what. It is wh...

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Ordered my T4 Ins Pro on Sept 20th ish, and now told car will beat dealers mid March 2019. Seems about par for the course and what I anticipated!
