Re: XC40 T3 Auto Tremble

I activate the autohold in traffic where it is really useful. When turned on, brake to a halt and when the green icon lights up in the display take your foot off the brake. With the green icon lit up you know it is holding. The stop/start, as I've done with previous cars, I turn off as soon as I st...

Re: Brake groan

I had same issue so applied dealer and was told it's normal as all parts were quite new. I also felt tremors when I reach 110 km speed and up. I again applied dealer and was fixed in couple hours by adjusting the front rods and balancing the tires, no any part was changed or replaced. And now... All...

Re: Vibrations @55-80mph

Mine arrived on Wednesday, and had a vibration pretty much all through the speed range, but particularly around 65mph, felt through the seat, not the steering wheel. Took it back in and they discovered the back tyres (P-zero’s) we’re out of round. Fronts were fine. Replacing all four with Michelin’...

Re: Opinions on the T3 geartronic

I prefer T3 Gearbox due to tax rates between 1.5 and 2.0 L capacity engines in Turkey. Just as @emporiky did, instead of investing my money for more powerful engine+more tax every year, I waited for 1.5L engine with almost all options useful for safe and comfort drive. Coming to my feelings, yes, I ...

Re: Is the XC40 a noisy car?

I drive T3 Automatic gearbox and the only noise I complain is because of tires (Conti Eco-Contact 6), which I seriously consider to change with Michelin Primacy 4.

Re: Best Wishes from Izmir-Turkey

Welcome to the forum, and I hope you enjoy you XC40 when it arrives. I love how international this group is. I was in the Merchant Navy between 1974 and 1986, sailing on BP oil tankers all over the World, and I keep seeing people joining the forum from places I visited back then, which brings back ...
