Re: Buffering...

Via my iPhone (Three) it's a bit slow at my house which is to be expected, after that it works perfectly fine so I'm going to chalk it up to the car, or just terribly bad luck and buffering the next track when the EE coverage happens to drop out. Guess I'll just have to live with it as there isn't a...

I don't want this in my car as Im a tall guy
What height are you out of interest? I'm 6'4" and have adequate headroom with the sunroof and the seat fully down. Just wondering if you had the seat properly adjusted or you are super tall!

Buffering...

Though a dealer would never agree with me, I'm convinced after a service back in January that the car gets worse reception for the P-SIM I have installed in the car to use services like Spotify. Pretty much every time I start the car I'm 5 minutes into driving when the music suddenly comes on. If I ...

Re: What options do you regret not ordering?

I got every option except the charging pad for your phone. I got CarPlay so figured, I have to plug the phone in for that, what's the point in the charging pad? I never use CarPlay and would have much preferred that pad. I did ask if one could be installed now but they said no. Not sure I believe th...

Re: "power steering assist temporarily reduced"

I get this message when parking at home sometimes, I reverse out of the drive straight onto the road then turn to follow the road. I think it doesn't like me turning the steering wheel so quickly.

Re: XC40 Remote Start

My remote start used to work everytime - now it seems to time out and say 'engine issue' (or something like that) for the last couple of weeks. I could even remote start the car from my apple watch without any issues. I have noticed I have a software update on the car which maybe connected. In the ...

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

Had my first Slippery Road Alert - the feature where other Volvo's communicate road conditions to each other and you get a little warning icon on the speedo to warn you. The road wasn't slippy but I thought it was cool!

Re: Coasting

Does it engine brake normally? I am pretty sure I've only ever felt this in Dynamic, maybe I'm not sensitive enough to discern it doing it in other drive modes. I find the XC40 excellent at free-wheeling, I'm always having to brake when going down even a slight gradient because I'm catching up with ...

Re: Volvo On Call - "Engine Not Working Properly"

Just a quick update for those reading this in the future - I didn't get round to bringing it to the dealer but the problem has not reoccurred, it lasted maybe 48 hours. I'm wondering if it was due to getting it serviced and some gremlins escaping. Or maybe the battery was a bit low. Or maybe it was ...
