Re: New Devon XC40 Owner

Welcome, glad you are enjoying your XC40. Its a fantastic car to drive and Devon is a beautiful county to drive it in. We holiday near Sidmouth every year. If you have not already done so get a screen protector for the centre screen. It reduces fingerprints and refections as well as protecting again...

Re: Parking Climate

The start button under the remote start tab switches on the engine. The start button under the parking climate tab does not switch on the engine. It switches on the parking climate preconditioning heater. UK models do not have the preconditioning heater so that tab of the App is inoperative. I see,...

Re: RETRACTABLE POWER DOOR MIRRORS

I think they are standard throughout the range. My 68 plate certainly has them. Check the settings.

Re: T3 manual MPG

My volvo on call app is showing 41.2 mpg average. I did get up to 51.6 mpg according to the trip computer on a run from Norwich to Chesterfield. Overall I am very happy with the fuel economy.

Re: Parking Climate

So if I read this right with the parking climate settings for heated windows and seats set to come on, when I press the start button on the VOC app under the parking climate tab the engine should start remotely. When I have tried this I just get a rotating wheel in the app as though its waiting for ...

Re: Ordered an XC40 today

Welcome. I recommend downloading the owner manuals now and start reading through them to get an idea of all the controls and functions so you are not overwhelmed on delivery. It certainly helped me and with over 600 pages to read it will pass the time until you get the car. https://www.volvocars.com...

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

This setting may also be relevant as it means you don't have to press the rain switch each time you start the car. The memory function for the rain sensor can be activated in such a way that the rain sensor button does not need to be depressed each time the car is started: 1. Press Settings in the t...

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

Yes the manual is less than clear. It took a lot of trial and error with the controls to get it set right but I do have the icon in the driver display now. Not only do you need to press the rain sensor button but you need to select the auto position on the lighting stalk as this controls both auto l...
