  1. We just completed our Overseas Delivery Trip

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    Jezza, we received our car last friday and it was turned in on 4 Nov, so about 2 months. But keep in mind that it makes a difference where you turn the car in. Since I turned mine in at Frankfurt it took longer than if I would have turned it in in Sweden, and probably would have taken much...
  2. Lack of information for new owners

    Volvo XC40 Complaints, Issues And Problems
    Wow, we just brought out XC40 home and spent about 3 hours getting familar with how things worked. First off we couldn't get it to pair with our garage door opener. And after spending 15 minutes trying to get it paired I finally used an opener that I already had paired with that door and used...
  3. Towing with the XC 40

    Towing
    I plan on towing my ATV from Northern California to Richfield Ut later this year and will be taking hwy 50 across Nevada with fairly long stretches of road between gas stations. Does anyone know what the range of the XC 40 with the T5 engine is when towing ? The combined weight of my ATV and...
  4. Thunder gray- polarizing?

    Volvo XC40 General Discussion Forum
    I'm taking possession of my Thunder Grey Inscription today. We put about 2600 miles on it in Europe (Overseas Delivery Program) and really liked it more and more as we spent time with it. As stated previously, only my opinion counts towards my vehicle. Or as the old lady said as she kissed...
  5. T3 _163hp_consumption

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    My guess is not imported in the USA with the T3 engine
  6. We just completed our Overseas Delivery Trip

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    If you and your husband have German and French covered this will be a piece of cake. And unless his German is very good I think you'll find that the Germans will prefer to speak English. They can't help themselves and it seems to make them more comfortable speaking English rather than...
  7. We just completed our Overseas Delivery Trip

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    Whatever they call the automated map in the center of the console is what I refer to as the GPS. And we found it very handy that in addition to the center screen, when you are using it you also get a smaller version (details on the immediate road ahead of you) in front of the driver. Sometimes...
  8. We just completed our Overseas Delivery Trip

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    Maingirl, I arranged my flight plans without really considering flexibility, so I'm not sure if you can include flexibility in your request. Your best bet is to call the Volvo travel people and hopefully you get someone as helpful as Nye and can find out how flexible you can be. One mistake I...
  9. We just completed our Overseas Delivery Trip

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    We just returned from our Overseas Delivery Trip and I want to put a few things down while they're still fresh in my memory. Travel arrangements went smoothly. We called the travel agency that Volvo uses and a gentleman named Nye worked with me to arrange our transportation to and from Europe...
  10. Realistic gas mileage

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Yes, thank you Knarr, that is very helpful to know. We all know that fuel mileage improves with break in, but it's good to know for sure that it improves quite a bit with the XC40. Do you have the T4 or the T5?
  11. Realistic gas mileage

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I've purchased the Inscription T-5 through the Overseas Delivery Program and will be leaving for Europe next Saturday. We plan on driving down through Germany and visiting a few of our favorite places in Germany, then into France, and doing the turn in at Frankfurt in early November. I'm...
  12. Amazon Blue has been discontinued

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    "To each his own". I really loved the Amazon Blue with the white top. But I'm sure that we'll also like the Thunder Grey, and I'll probably add some trim in a contrasting color once we get the car and have time to consider what would look good. Thankfully wrap is fairly inexpensive, especially...
  13. Engine upgrade

    Volvo XC40 General Discussion Forum
    David, you may be right, but what you said conflicts with what I was told by the dealer.
  14. Engine upgrade

    Volvo XC40 General Discussion Forum
    I just checked with the dealer and was told that the 2.0 engine is the same in both the XC 90 and XC 40, just tuned a bit differently in the XC 90. So the only problem would be if there is enough space in the engine compartment of the XC 40 for the supercharger, any required changes in the...
  15. Engine upgrade

    Volvo XC40 General Discussion Forum
    I just checked the specs on the XC 90 and it has the same size engine (2 liter) as the XC 40, has the same power and torque, except for the XC 90 Excellence, which has a supercharger. It has 400 hp and 472 ft lbs of tq. So my question is, how difficult would it be to add that supercharger to...
  16. Engine Start/Stop System

    Volvo XC40 General Discussion Forum
    I like the idea of being able to permanently disable the start/stop system, so hopefully someone can verify that there is a wire to disconnect to disable that system.
  17. I've ordered my XC40 Inscription - Thunder Grey Metallic

    Volvo XC40 General Discussion Forum
    What I originally wanted was the beautiful blue (with the white top) that was available last year on the Momentum, however, that has been discontinued for 2020. The color choice was forcing me to go with the Momentum instead of the Inscription, which I really wanted, but with that color...
  18. GPS in Europe ?

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    Jezza, my wife and I will both have the 30 day pass for our cell phones, but since we have AT&T I'm not sure what the coverage will be. And since I already have the European Map loaded into my Garmin it will be a good back up. But thanks for your suggestion.
  19. Volvo turn in upon completion

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    Since our route when leaving Gotenburg for Heidelberg passes very close to Frankfurt I'll stop by the vehicle turn in site and find out what all is required, estimate how long the process will take, and make sure that when I go back to turn in my XC40 that it's a quick and smooth process so...
  20. 2019 custom ordering still available in US?

    Volvo XC40 Ordering and Purchasing
    While you can't order 2019's a dealer can do a search for you and possibly trade for whatever vehicle you're trying to find. And there are still a few 2019's in the system so hopefully you can find exactly what you're looking for.
