Re: Can't wait to get rid

simmo - if you read the forum you will see posts about the odd issue and snags. All usual. However q3billy’s case is a very unfortunate one and a real shame. I hope it is resolved satisfactorily for him. There is far more positivity around this car from owners than negativity. Appreciate this doesn’...

Re: Wheels 19 or 20 inch

I've got 19's because the 20's weren't available.

Didn't notice much difference on the test drive (20s) to be honest but I would have preferred (and still do) the 20's just due to the looks. Beautiful wheels in my opinion.

They are very helpful in finding solutions. Don’t worry they will fix it!
Not in my experience. It's been in 3 times for that issue alone but they've not replicated it. Problem is, it's sporadic not every drive.

They advised the water on the fly screen was normal. Don't believe that.

Re: Too many defects

I have (still) an issue where I believe the roof has a sealant problem. Soaked inside and a very strange noise while driving. I have a few rattles, have had the car in for quite a few things and agree re: the software update message - really annoying. I've been very disappointed with Volvo (well the...

Re: XC-40 performance in heavy snow

I genuinely never thought about using off road mode! Doh!

Got cross climates on mine now anyway so hopefully combine the 2

Re: Tyres

Wow. Really.

Noted. They were £25 cheaper than Blackcircles for the 4 plus Quidco cashback on top and a winter kit hence going with them.

But will keep an eye on things while being fitted!

Re: Tyres

Just ordered a full set of cross climates (235/50/19) for mine. Went out in the first batch of snow on Friday and was a little disappointed. I’d been debating for a while so have now taken the plunge. Funnily enough when I ordered today they were the cheapest I’ve seen them and through Kwik Fit. Goi...

Re: Panoramic roof - wet inside

Thats the exact noise I get. My mrs thinks it sounds like water inside the roof. I have had it before when it hasn't rained as well though but it has been very evident during the recent bad weather. I fully dried the roof out one day (had it open and let the air do its work) but its now drenched ins...

Re: Panoramic roof - wet inside

Complete new sunroof to be fitted. If it makes you feel any better, my car also needed a new sunroof but for a completely different reason. In my case the mechanism was straight on one side and very obviously bent on the other which meant I couldn't open or close it properly. The job sheet says 'ne...
