Hi,

This dent in the boot area of my XC40 has upset me.
Sorry to see the damage to your car. I hope get it sorted without too much hassle.
I bet you wish you hadn’t started this thread now though!!

This is a known fault with sunroof. Your dealer should be aware of it and fix it FOC - mine did. 68 T4 Inscription.
Do you know what they did to fix it ?

Re: Service cancellation

My car went in on Saturday and had the On Call and internet connection fixed. Yesterday, about 2 hours after I had an email saying they had closed, the city safety and driver aids stopped working and the sat nav doesn’t know where I am and thinks I’m driving in the sea half the time !! Don’t know wh...

Re: Knocking sound in the rain

Do you have a sunroof ?
If so, in heavy rain at motorway speeds the water drain vents can start to make strange noises.

Re: The General Fuel Consumption Thread

I’ve done 12000 miles now in my D4 and show an average of 33.6mpg !! Week day journeys are only local and do a few longer journeys per month . I think the auto box is a big part of the problem as it seems very inefficient compared to other manufacturers who seem to get virtually the same economy fro...

Re: Reversing down steepish drive.

I park on a sloping drive and find if I just very quickly blip the throttle and put my foot back on the brake then the handbrake will release without the car actually moving. You can then reverse down the drive with your foot brake controlling the speed.

Re: Speed Camera Alerts

I have the "Speed Limit Warning" ticked and set with 0 mph deviation.
I don't have the Road Sign Audio Warning ticked......but I think I will tick that one too.
