Re: Stop-start not working properly in auto hold

I find that sometimes the start/stop appears to have a mind of its own. It doesn’t work so well if the aircon or heating is working hard. If the battery charge reduces it also stops working until the battery has recharged. This can easily happen in queuing traffic. The system won’t work unless there...

Re: Cross Traffic Alert Live test.

Last year I was reversing out of an undercover space in the local supermarket car park. I was on the end of a row and despite hazard lights reversing lights and normal car lights this didn’t stop a woman driver totally ignoring me being half way out when she came flying round the corner with absolut...

Re: Volvo on call app

I’ve had this issue a couple of times when it appeared that the oncall server was down. I couldn’t get any real time information about the car. The app thought the car was miles away but was in fact parked on the driveway. The missing journeys did eventually get downloaded correctly.

Re: Getting rid of XC40

I’m going to agree with the last 3 posts. Had my car for 14 months and no problems or concerns. There is a clicking noise from beneath the dashboard, noticeable only if sitting in the car after switching the engine off. This is as the car shuts down, it’s not a problem. I drove Subaru’s for 19 years...

Re: Fuelling with 2 flaps

I’ve tried most brands including Morrison’s and Esso and never had a problem. In fact I wasn’t aware that there was one.

Re: Paddles/gear indication

When in manual the relevant gear Is displayed next to the M symbol in the right hand dial.
When in auto no gear indication is displayed.
If using the paddles in an auto setting, the gear indication will show but will revert to auto with no gear displayed if not used.

Re: Looking at buying a XC40

Some of the ones now being sold are Volvo’s own cars. Either company vehicles or press fleet. When I took my car for its first years service the dealer had an identical FE for sale at a far higher price than I paid. I’ve also seen a similar one locally recently supplied by the same dealer. Check the...

Re: Volvo PCP - Service Plan (dealer didn't set up - Fuming!)

My recollection is similar to Bob’s. The 3 year servicing deal came with the Volvo PCP finance deal. Have you looked in the service book to see if that been completed to confirm that the car has a valid service deal? Worth looking at just in case the paperwork got mislaid. I haven’t got any other pa...

Re: "Request an appointment"using in-car status app? (also includes Volvo ID/My car webpage error)

I got the same message every time I started the car. It only cleared following the software update at the dealers. They told me that this reset the car status and cleared any warning messages. Pressing the circle button on the right hand side of the steering wheel will hide the message until the nex...
