Re: Brake groan

I haven't received my XC40 yet but had the exact same thing happen with my V40. Dealer explained it was the hill start assist keeping the brakes applied until the engine is pulling enough so the computer knows you won't roll backward and that perhaps the threshold before the brake is released was ma...

Re: Dash cam - factory fitted

However I regret this now a touch as this system only records when the engine is running/ignition is on thus won’t capture any incidents or knocks when the car is parked. You could always ask them to switch its power source from a switched live to a permanent live. Or depending on how they installe...

Re: Tracking an order

Does anyone know how accurate the dealers information is? Presumably they get this from some Volvo system but I've no idea if I should trust it. I've been told my car is due to be delivered on the 14th, I've no idea how many days they will need for the PDI etc. It's sort of frustrating not being abl...

Re: Web links

Don't think so - the forum appears to be phpBB and an extension/modification would be required for that behaviour. It's generally not included by default as it's considered bad etiquette for a site to operate in a non-standard way, i.e. if you want a window/tab to open, you use a middle click or use...

Just had a mail from my dealer. Ordered mid March - 6 November delivery, T5 FE.
Sadly I think I may be cancelling.
Can you cancel? I think I'll be losing my deposit if I try and I'm tempted (fed up!).

Re: Opinions needed please guys - my apologies for lengthy post

I'd let them do the work and get them to rectify any bit you're not happy with. I'm not sure exactly what part you're talking about and the process involved but I've taken nearly every bit of trim off on one side of my car (V40) to install a dashcam cable and it's pretty easy, everything clips in. A...
