I finally have an actual date!
It's due at the dealers 2nd October, then a few days before delivery. We'll see!
Did Alan say what level of confidence he has in that date holding? as that's the first time I think either of us have had anything more than a certain month timeframe.

Fingers crossed only 2 months until we both have our cars
No, I didn't push him, but hopefully it won't be too far out.
Ordered 24th February: XC40, FE, T5, Crystal White, Lava Interior, 19" wheels, Tow Bar, Polestar, was expected June/July, but delivery to dealer is now posted as 2nd October!

We can only try, I may try and get some rubber mats and/or a boot liner?

Hi thanks I ordered last weekend in March

But wondered if anyone else had any experiences .
I ordered on the 15th March and is currently due for delivery on the 12th September, this was confirmed several months ago and have spoken to my dealer since and date still good.

May be because I'm surrounded by motorways where I live possibly then. Didn't think about that til now.

Thank you to those who replied to my post about anyone who has ordered before 19th Jan and still haven't got their cars. I received a phone call yesterday basically saying the salesman I had been dealing with has left, then saying they are a whole new team. Tried to explain bit of history about my order, he didn't know about xc40 delivery problems or any of the history of my order. I am at a lost cause! I emailed Gavin Moolman who is Volvo uk's distribution manager as I don't where else to turn.

Mr Moolman replied very quickly and actually said car is en route to the UK. I can't fault the man replying that quick and he took the time to look into it for me. Thanks

Had a funny experience at the weekend. Attended a local riverside festival at which there was a section where local dealers were showing new cars. Spotted Marshals Volvo so I popped in to have a look at and sit in an XC40, it’s been so long since I ordered I’ve forgotten what it looks/feels like!
The salesperson walked me over to where the XC40 was supposed to be but was alarmed to find it wasn’t there! It turns out it had been removed back to the dealers overnight as it had been attracting so much interest that nobody was interested in the other models on show ;0)
It was being climbed over so much that I guess that they were worried about wear and tear.

I told the salesperson why I wanted to see it and ironically she asked me when mine was due for delivery! I thought that was their job. The wait goes on.....and on.....and on.....
