Re: Volvos Diabolical handling of the XC40 fiasco

I went through exactly the same process over the last couple of weeks, Marketry. Originally was going to go for Q2 back in March, tried the XC40 and and my mind was immediately made up - felt immediately confident in ordering my XC40. With all the delays (still no date for my T5 FE, hopefully some n...

Re: ASL Automatic Speed Limiter

From my downloaded manual... “Automatic speed limitation takes place using speed information from the RSI function - not from the speed limit road signs that the car passes.” When I was testing the car, I’m sure I was told that the limit info comes from a database built into the mapping system, whic...

Re: Delivery Date

Like AndyP, my 15th March FE order is also in the holding pool awaiting allocation of a build date. Latest update from dealer was that Volvo are reporting that the date may not be allocated until early May.

Re: GAP and Alloy insurance

insurers won't sell it as a year three afterthought. There are providers that will commence a policy with a car up to 12 months old, but many do limit it to being within a month or two of purchase. Whichever option you go with, I’ve always found it much cheaper buying independently than through the...

Re: Delivery Date

I'm sceptical so I did look at an Audi Q2 yesterday which is £10k less and got all the bits. Still rather have an xc40. I was on the verge of ordering a Q2, then test drove the XC40 and was in a massive dilemma for a few days! After discussion with the Volvo dealer and hearing that the First Editio...

Re: Poll: Lead times ( from order till delivery)

Changed to ‘Not Known’ as dealer still waiting info from Volvo. I suspect his original late-June estimate may be put back based on timescales given to others on here.

Re: Manual or Automatic?

As said by others, it’s very much a personal preference thing. Having said that... After 20-odd years of manuals, I got my first auto (a Tiguan) about 5 years ago. Was immediately converted. Replaced that with my current A-Class, again auto. As an aside, with its column mounted gear lever, the switc...

Re: Insurance quotes

Mine were in the mid-£200 to low-£300 range.

44 year old in Hampshire, max NCB.
