Re: Confused new owner!

Just throwing a thought out there - was your Tiguan automatic with the DSG box? Having driven both, the DSG box is very different to the Volvo and doesn't disengage like a DGS - and these type's do tend to introduce more "drive motion" especially in slow/ stop start traffic. Out of the two types I ...

Re: Could you drive it into a brick wall?

Of some concern in certain countries - if you're subjected to an armed carjacking you might want the ability to run over pedestrians and motorcyclists in order to escape from being shot. If and when you want to escape from being shot , it’s in every way best to not run over pedestrians and motorcyc...

At £60,000 I'll be running a mile from Volvo. Far too expensive for the class of car, electric or not.
Which other not too expensive class of car at £60,000 (electric or not) do you have in mind ?

Re: Infotainment system is atrocious

I think these multicoloured systems that appear in so many cars look like "my first computer" garish colours and icons. The Volvo system has style. Of course it is due to change as Volvo rolls out the google based system across the range. Hopefully it won't look like "my first computer" My very fir...

Re: Decisions decisions

I'm in the process of ordering my first volvo in years but I can't decide on the colour scheme. Does anyone have a Onxy Black paint job paired with the Blond interior that they could post a picture of? The guy in the showroom didn't think that it was a good combination but I'm not convinced. If I c...

Re: MY21 only 1 main key confirmed

2) do you know, when you buy a second normal key fob, whether they add a new driver profile to the car or not? Logically and from earlier comments, the dealer adds a new driver profile when you buy a second black key fob, of which the name can be changed. However, just to be sure, it’s best to ask ...

Re: MY21 only 1 main key confirmed

No, the main driver profile you can assigned to the black key and edit and rename. Beszi is referring to the orange key which defaults to profile 2 and you cannot rename. From earlier comments, if you get a second key and assign to the car you can associate with profile 2 and rename. I guess the or...

Re: MY21 only 1 main key confirmed

Only if it's assigned to a regular (black) key it would seem. I have tried but with only an orange second key this functionality is greyed out. Interesting. So, if the functionality is greyed out when you only have an orange second key fob, it is impossible to change the name of the main driver pro...

Re: MY21 only 1 main key confirmed

I've just received (in Hungary) my T5 Recharge with two fobs, one normal and one orange. The orange is assigned to Drive Profile 2 automatically and saves all the settings for mirrors, seat, etc. However, I can't change the name of the profile. Since both me and my wife will drive the car, she is o...

Re: Leather seats

As I recall, my wife was offered a genuine Volvo leather care set when her XC40 was delivered by the (Belgian) dealership, but I don’t know if this is standard procedure or not.
