We were notified yesterday that our XC40 B4 AWD Rdesign and XC60 T6 Rdesign (both in Thunder Grey) are in the country and being prepared for delivery next week. Pure coincidence as they are coming via different dealers and have both suffered their own build setbacks. The XC40 was originally ordered in August but a drivetrain change resulted in a fresh order early November while the XC60 has been on order since September. Hopefully they will both be handed over to us next week.

It's been a long wait but we have that buzz of excitement back after a lot of dissapointment, setbacks and uncertainty.

Order went to Volvo through work lease for a recharge twin ultimate and I was given a September delivery to update when Volvo start production in May.

Just received an email from our leasing company estimating a 20th December delivery! Although it states Volvo haven't confirmed yet, I'm hoping it's no where near that long!

So just off the phone with care by volvo.

Ordered XC40 Recharge Ultimate in December.

They are removing the Pixel Headlights from my vehicle to fufil the order. £50 voucher given, no reduction in subscription cost which doesn't suprise me.

Vehicle due in Port 14th October so more like 11 months than the 9 originally stated.

Collected my T3 Momentum last week, 7 months from order. What has been everybodys experience with updates from dealers, not impressed with mine (UK). Was promised I would get regular updates, right up to build, but these were few and far between.

Hadn't heard anything for a while so rang as the estimated build date was getting closer. He checked and said 'oh, its been built and is on its way'. This left me with a rush to get my private plates off and the v5 back.

Had to chase the dealer for the finance documentation several times, I eventually received it at 5pm the night before collection

This took the shine off the experience, instead of looking forward to collection, i was just getting annoyed. Bought new cars before but the experience with Volvo has been by far the worst.
