Re: Screen reset

This has happened a few times to me. It’s usually if I’ve started the car and switched off before it’s fully booted, such as moving the car off the drive. Probably 3 or 4 times in the last 12 months. Will ask about it when it’s next serviced.

Re: Disconnected Download Centre

So yesterday, after a few days of a ‘disconnected download centre’, the problem fixed itself. New map updated and all is back to normal.

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

Re: cruise control. I think it’s the right way round, i.e. one press for +/- 5mph, and a long press to get exact speed in between. Speed limits are always multiples of 5mph. If you’re on the motorway and the limits drop to 60, then 2 presses and you’re there. If you’re holding the button and looking...

Re: Disconnected Download Centre

My Sensus tells me a new map update is available too, via the blue dot with ‘1’ inside. I go onto maps and NW Europe (my home region) sometimes says ‘paused’ and sometimes it says there’s no update. I have all the icons at the top of the screen, including the globe. I don’t know what’s going on, but...

Re: Storage

I keep my digital memo in there. I suppose you could use it for a garage door remote, tic tacs, polos, banana 🤷🏼‍♂️

Re: Low washer fluid

When you have approx 1 litre left a warning appears in the driver display.
If you press the RH button on the steering wheel it temporarily removes the message, perhaps that happened 🤷🏼‍♂️

Re: Have I made the right choice choosing the T3 8 speed auto?

I have had two T3 R-Design XC40’s and I think it’s a great engine and box. Actually, I never even think about it being a small engine or auto, it just runs smoothly, is quiet, pulls when I want it to, and gives good MPG. With 163bhp it’s not underpowered and I’ve never had to thrash it or rev it har...

Re: Spare wheel

I once used a can of that foam with a previous car and it was such a fuss that I thought never again. You usually end up having to have a new tyre anyway. In my Volvo, 3 months ago I found a screw in the tyre, wasn’t losing pressure but needed to get it sorted. Went around 3 tyre centres which, in t...
