Re: MPG - Again :-)

Well DB2K I’ve done about 5500 miles since last September, this has mainly been short journeys (10 miles) at a time with a couple of 200+ miles.

Re: T5 AWD Fuel Economy - what are you getting?

I’ve had mine just over 6 months , ive been very driver oriented and mine is showing 29.5. This is a figure I’m reasonably happy with , as the car is great. I did get 33 on a run of 100 miles ( motorway and A roads) at a reasonably sedate 60-65mph . I just don’t know why people complain about MPG wh...

Re: My car is a turd.

I’m really sorry to hear that you’ve had trouble with your first edition, I’ve been lucky to have owned mine since September 18(68reg) and so far no problem whatsoever. I really do hope you get sorted as I honestly think that these cars are as good as the reviews say! . It could be worse and you cou...

Johnd, I’ve had mine since September. I did start to keep record of my mpg, started off in eco with super unleaded and averaged around the 29mpg.

Re: Cleaning!

If you read the manual it states you shouldn’t do anything other than washing in the first 12 months. Unfortunately I applied polish then Jetseal to it after I washed and “clayed”the car before I read this, can’t do any harm I suppose but probably undid whatever Volvo had applied!.

Re: Running In.

I too am of an age to remember when you had to “run in” a new car. I’ve had mine a few weeks now just reached 750 miles of the treatment, use only premium petrol so hopefully the car will repay my kindness in the years to come 👍. Loving every minute driving it , worth the long wait!.
