Re: Pillow/Neck cushion

We use ours on longish journeys when the passenger is having a doze! Normally me when the wife takes over driving for her spell!

Re: Pilot Assist/ACC

I use ACC all the time and have pilot assist turned off most of the time. I use it on motorways only.

Re: T4 R Design Pro ordered - changing from Jaguar XE 25T

Re: New Volvo (XC40) user. T4 or T5

I have T4 Inscription and I am finding it's fine. Now done about 2000 miles and I think it's perfectly adequate for the UK roads and speed limits. Had no problems with acceleration(hard) when tried/needed. Not too economical the best I have managed is 34mpg.

Re: Hey!

Check that it has had it's 3 month inspection and that the details have been recorded. I bought an ex demonstrator and it has been brilliant.

Re: Front USB ports

I have an IPOD NANO connected to mine and you have to look really hard to find it as it sits alongside the contactless charging pad. I leave mine permanently connected

Re: Double-tap gearshift

I find absolutely fine and quickly adapted to the system. I also drive another automatic a VW Golf with the standard shift system. My problem comes when I get into my classic Porsche and have to change gear and use a clutch! I quite like the Volvo system.
