Re: XC40 test.

Very interesting indeed. Brings back memories of many LR Experience days. Amazing what these cars can do

Re: Windscreen demisting

Used the app this morning to start mine remotely and all nice and defrosted within a few minutes.

No misting up on the inside...suggest something up with yours OP or had you just drunk a hot mug of coffee? As others have said heated front screen should have cleared in seconds.

Re: Ordered an XC40 on Sunday.

Hopefully a timely Christmas present to yourself! Good that waiting times have come down a bit. The car is worth the wait though!

Re: Do you have a 'Rain Sensor' icon in driver display?

I can only select the rain sensing wipers with the wipers switched off...ie not on intermittent. pressing the button on the side of the stalk only took effect when the wipers were totally switched off. Took me a while to work out how to make them work but got there in the end.

Re: Paddle shifters on all automatic gear? (Momentum?)

I've got them on my R design...never used them! Gearbox is so good at changing gear!

Re: New car pick up experiences

I have had no built quality issues with my XC40. Only been back for the courtesy 3m check. This is my first Volvo.

Never bought a VW (skoda/audi/Seat) so can't comment on VAG quality.
