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

Lead times do seem a bit random. Mine was ordered mid August 2018 with estimated delivery 1 June 2019. Settled in for a long wait, then in late November 2018 got a call to say arriving in a few days! It may be that some trim level/engine combinations are quicker than others. My dealer had no specifi...

You could easily trigger fault codes and warnings on all manner of unrelated things. Your dealer would n...

Re: GAP Insurance

My insurance company (Saga - most of you are probably too young to qualify!) gives 'new for old' up to 2 years but only up to 12,000 miles.

Re: Delivery 6 months early!

Collecting on Thursday. I'll see if I can get any more info on how this vast improvement on delivery time actually happened. They have already mentioned that they have had 'a few' arriving similarly early with no advance warning from Volvo. Apparently the dealer can log on to Volvo's systems to moni...

Delivery 6 months early!

Ordered in mid August with estimated delivery 1 June 2019. I had hoped that this might improve to April/May when the new production capacity came on stream in January.
