Re: XC40 Revision

What engine are you coming from? Macan SD, so 3l diesel, albeit in a 1900kg car. TBH I don't use the paddles much in the Macan but OTOH there's relatively little need to - due to the combination of available torque and that the DSG gearbox is tuned to be pretty responsive, especially in Sport or Sp...

Re: Average SIM card usage

I bought a 12gb sim a year ago that has just expired. It still had 7gb of data left on it. I only use it for traffic on the satnav and as an in-car wifi for my partner to connect her phone to for social media etc. I have just replaced it with the 2 year 24gb Three sim at a cost of £42 which is the e...

Re: Volvo on call app

I have the same issue this afternoon and it has happened a few times before. I wonder if it's problem somehow caused by Volvo when this happens....maybe a app/server issue. Mine has said "Car in use" since I drove home lunchtime. I have driven back to work and it still says it now.. (We have excelle...

Re: Voice control to display Sat Nav screen.

Sorry, haven't managed to come across a voice command.
I always press the home button first which then gives you a bigger target to stab at to get back to the map.

Re: First Year Service

Not sure why you doubt they changed the oil based on the level indicator? Or have I missed something ?

Was there anything noted on your order form, if you still have it?
Just checked and the service plan does not show anywhere on my order form.

Re: Volvo PCP - Service Plan (dealer didn't set up - Fuming!)

The 3 year service was definitely included FOC with the Volvo/Santander pcp deal in March 2018 as that is the deal I took. I paid the extra £200 to upgrade to the 5 year plan though. There is no mention of the service plan in my finance paperwork. I received a confirmation email from Volvo / Allianz...

Re: MPG - Again :-)

I have found that my actual mpg is usually somewhere between what the car trip says and what the app says.

Re: Oil Level Warning

After around 3700 miles in a D3R, the warning sign has come on that my oil level is too high, and to get it booked in for an oil service. I have previously been warned that my AdBlue needed topping up when it didn't! Cars are getting too complicated in my opinion, what is wrong with a dipstick? and...

Re: First Edition - Driver Support System Failure

I had the same problem yesterday :( Everything was fine when I parked the car but 3 hours later when I went to drive home all the driver support systems were not available. The sat nav did initially work but with no traffic flow showing which I guess was because the onboard sim/modem was also not wo...
