  1. Vibrations at higher speeds

    Volvo XC40 Complaints, Issues And Problems
    What wheels and tires did the swapped set have? I just test drove another XC40 this morning with the same setup as mine, 20" rims with the Pirelli Scorpion and I felt the same shimmy/vibrations. If you perform a Google search for the Pirelli Scorpion Verde 20" you'll see numerous other...
  2. turbo whine/whistle

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I agree with White Shadow. If you are just hearing it "hiss" when hitting the gas you are just hearing the turbo whistle. I have a VW Golf which has the same sound and my GT-R, well I even had a blow-off valve to make it sound even better. I personally like the turbo whistle and will drive the...

    Volvo XC40 Complaints, Issues And Problems
    Thanks for the link to the UK forum, I had been following that one as well. It's hard for someone who isn't always driving this car to notice these things. The UK thread captures it all really well. I see differences based on ambient temperatures as well, and thought I was crazy for thinking...

    Volvo XC40 Complaints, Issues And Problems
    I think this is the same issue I am also experiencing on my XC40 Inscription with 20 inch wheels. After around 65 mph, I feel a vibration coming through the steering wheel and the seats. I have two other cars which have no such vibrations on the same roads. The dealer has rotated my tires...
  6. Brake vibration

    Volvo XC40 Complaints, Issues And Problems
    Do you feel the vibrations while braking or in general? I have a vibration issue with mine above 65 mph and have taken it to the dealer 4 times now. Not sure what is causing it yet but now the dealership is saying its normal. I have two other cars which are driven on the same roads and I don't...
  7. Hello from Kirkland, WA!

    New Member Introductions
    What's up everyone! After much shopping for a small SUV that was fun (my requirement) and comfortable (my wife's requirement) to drive, we both liked what the XC40 had to offer after comparing it to an Audi Q5, Mazda CX5 Signature Trim and a couple of other options. However, we almost gave up...
