Re: No under bonnet insulation

If you will notice that the engine has a large soft molded sound dampening cover over it that takes the place of the insulation usually installed under the hood/ bonnet.

Re: POOR HEAD LIGHTS

I have an R-Design with the optional Active Bending Lights - These are the finest lights I have ever had on any vehicle in my 50 years of driving. I cannot say that lighting is the same on every car from Volvo as each country may have different specs etc. for lighting.

Re: Nuisance Service Message

Here is a YouTube video of someone doing an oil change on his XC40 - At the very end of this video at about 14:10, he shows you how to reset the service reminder notification.

Re: Car park headroom

The rear door can be programmed to automatically stop at any height you want. Look in the manual and it will describe how to do this. It can be set to stop at a slightly lower opening to prevent this.

Re: Individual mode settings

The displays for the Dynamic and Comfort mode are the same though you can edit what style display you want to show.

Re: Individual mode settings

Yes I understand - When in the individual settings and I have the Dynamic Mode set and I save the mode to my key, when I start the car the Dynamic mode is set and the display reads Dynamic though perhaps there are different software versions that show things differently.

Re: Individual mode settings

It is the way my car works. When I am in Dynamic mode the tachometer has the word Dynamic displayed. I have the 4c active suspension also so maybe that is why my car functions this way.

Re: Individual mode settings

The only difference between the Dynamic and Comfort displays will be the word Dynamic that will show up inside the tachometer when in the Dynamic mode.

Had the car 3 months now and only just found out there is a warning triangle folded up and stored in a cubby hole in the tail gate. :D
I was disappointed to find that I did not have a warning triangle in my cubby hole. It must be supplied depending on specific laws for each country.(USA)

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

I just discovered that while in Pilot assist or adaptive cruise mode if you are in traffic that stops and the cruise control disables you can just touch the speed + button and the cruise control will re-activate and follow the car in front as it begins to move.
