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 ...

Feel like you need to return it to service and explain the issue.
Thanks, will do

Volvo On Call - "Engine Not Working Properly"

I've had my car a year and recently got the car serviced but of course this has absolutely nothing to do with that! The Volvo On Call app has been unable to Remote Start the engine with the following error message: "Your Volvo could not be started because the engine is not working properly" When I g...

Re: Voice Commands

Does anyone know how to cancel if you hit the button by mistake? Hitting the button again doesn't do it, nor does shouting cancel! At least for me.

Otherwise I find them handy to switch on the seat/steering heat or change the temperature/fan speed.

Re: Automatic gearbox very shocky

When you start the car, do you wait for the engine idle to drop before moving? I find that helps. It takes 20-30 seconds perhaps.

Re: Harman Kardon stereo?

Have you ever had any issues with the stereo? When I had my XC40 and it went in for screeching sounds from the door speakers they put a load of felt on the inside of the grills and it looked just like that. Awful. Nope, this is as per factory. I'm not sure if the grille comes off, or if they'll hav...

Has anyone else noticed this happening? I thought it was dust collecting but I think I must have been vacuuming the material underneath through the gaps over the last few months. I clean my car every week which maybe doesn't help.

No idea how to fix this!

Re: Red Car warning light

Here's my theory and it could be a load of nonsense. I get this a lot on my drive home when I'm passing parked cars on the left and getting very close to the white line on the right to pass them and thus getting close to traffic coming toward me. The road is wide enough of this to happen but the car...
