Re: Wireless charging symbol

Coincidentally just after posting this I got a curtesy call from the dealer asking about my service experience and were there any problems. I mentioned this but they had no information about it but will forward it on to Volvo customer services and update me when I get my first MOT in September.

Re: Stop Start function and trickle charging

I thought the stop/start worked off the support battery. How does charging the main battery get stop/ start working? I would be interested in getting one of these as my stop/start never seems to activate.

Hi, picking my T3 up tomorrow albeit a manual (one of the few me thinks), will be happy to be getting that sort of mpg after around 700 miles.
I have a T3 manual and I am averaging 42.1 mpg after 11,000 miles mixed driving, no stop start and in comfort mode most of the time.

Re: Spare wheel

If it is to late to add to your order then you can get one off ebay. Although I did not get my car new I made sure I found a used one with a spare wheel. Peace of mind ....... priceless.

Re: Newbie from West Mids

My T3 manual momentum pro has been pretty much faultless over the 18 months I have owned it. Like you it was a retirement present to myself. Haven't regretted it at all. Maybe consider an ex-demo or Volvo management car. Not only are they good value but any problems will have been well taken care of.

Re: Is a customised regional map package possible?

If you set north-western Europe as your home region then you will only get informed of updates to that region.
You can then individually update other areas of Europe manually should you ever need to.
Have a play around with the download screen and you will see what I mean.
