Re: Poor AC

UPDATE. Talked to the service people at the dealers and it’s to be fixed when I have the brake recall done this Friday. Apparently there is a new recall for this AC issue. The Service Manager told me that the system was over pressurised and they would re gas it to the correct pressure to fix. In the...

Re: Poor AC

Out today and tried AC for first time. Doesn’t work....at all Set temp at low on climate control with AC on and recirculating on and fan turns up to fast but just pushes the warm air around faster. Disappointed that this happens now as getting to service appointments is such a performance in lockdow...

Re: Delivery / Handover process ?

I had a decent handover of an hour or so despite the fact that it’s my seventeenth car and I know where the gear stick is! The car has a good deal of technology and when I did the original test drive I’d seen none of the detail of that. I also dropped in a week or so later for some guidance on sorti...

Re: MPG - Again :-)

I’ve had my T4 six days and 389 miles. In the first couple of days of short trips around town I had some very thirsty performance but a sixty mile round trip from cold achieved 38 mpg and today a 150 mile round trip with 140 on motorways in Eco mode between 65 and 70 mph mostly using cruise control ...

Re: Discount? Best time to buy?

Looking at the Honest john website Xc40 review today I saw a pop up for a car broker offering MY 20 T4 Inscription with a 17% discount.

If you are looking for a deal it’s unlikely a Volvo dealer would match that.


Would be a good deal as long as everything is trouble free with the car.

Re: Discount? Best time to buy?

Can’t help with the best time of year to buy but I used Car Wow at first and the best offer I received was about 9.5 % but that was over a hundred miles away. My local dealer offered 6.5 ish but were happy to go with the caravan club affinity discount. This added up to over 10.5% for my spec which I...

Re: Just ordered

hi Darren F...yes I ordered the Xenium Pack, intellisafe, winter pack plus retractable tow bar. I did originally order the T3 but after reading loads of reviews I dithered about power after years of driving diesels and only moving to petrol because of the tide against diesel power. I will occasional...
