Re: Looking at buying a XC40

A couple of owners on here sold back to volvo due to a change in personal circumstances and the value holding so well that they weren't actually out of pocket. The FE's come with a lot of kit, spec'ing an R Design to match will cost a fair amount. ^^^ That Likelihood nothing wrong with a used FE. A...

Re: Roof noise with rain

Yep. There’s a couple of references to this on the forum. It annoys the hell out of me on mine. Not only rain but during wind as well. To me it’s as though there’s a problem seal or something.

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 ne...

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

My annual service is due and booked for 29th April.
However I’m getting the request a service message and app notifications on a daily basis (every time I start the car)

Any ideas how to stop this??

Re: Introduction chrisO2019

I am one with a sunroof noise. Very annoying.

Personally I won’t spec one myself in the future. Lovely for light but just not worth the cost IMO.

A great car overall though.

Re: First Year Service

Cheapest I’ve come across (in my vicinity) is £260 at Clive Brook Huddersfield.

I suspect on a PCP you’ll have to have it done at Volvo? I couldn’t get a service pack as mine is a lease

Re: My car is a turd.

Must be honest, the noise is very annoying and does spoil my own enjoyment of the car. Thankfully I love it otherwise, so can imagine how it would impact you with additional issues. Good luck with what you do. I know this doesn't make it better but it definitely seems to be isolated cases of gremlin...

Re: My car is a turd.

Sorry to hear of your disappointment.

Have you asked Volvo about buying back, given they're holding value (FE's)?

With regards to number 5 - I think I have a similar noise - sounds like a 'flapping' noise and I'm sure its linked to a faulty seal but I've also had it checked to no avail

Re: Apple CarPlay

It’s one of the first option I checked on my order. I am a massive ‘tech’ person and 1 of the stipulations on my new car was Apple CarPlay. I have had the car a few dots now and have been using CarPlay for music streaming, sending and receiving messages, starting Sat Nav and it has been flawless. O...

Re: Apple CarPlay

If you don’t have sat nav in built it is a worthwhile addition for that alone. If you do have it then other than convenience of using the touchscreen it’s a lot to pay out. It is disappointing that you don’t get full screen view though. I have in built nav but CarPlay was included in my FE. I do fin...
