Hello All:

I have had my XC40 since April 2018. I ordered it in January and very excited for the car. I've had two issues thus far and I'm curious if anyone else has.

1. Check engine Light (Orange) for Evap System

- This was from a sensor and they stated it was for the emissions system. The lady informed me there was a similar issue with the XC90's when they first came out and that they eventually added something in the gas tank to make sure when filling the tank emissions couldn't get in.

Has anyone else had this issue?

2. Brakes are squeaking already

- I use my car for commuting, and don't really speed that much. I'm pretty easy on the brakes. I have used the semi-pilot system regularly and noticed that it sometimes overcorrects with the braking. She stated they tested the brakes and didn't "notice anything". The answer got sketchy when she said that "Volvo hasn't released a bulletin about brakes, and because they haven't they couldn't do anything" This led me to believe there may be something more to the braking issue, but it hasn't been reported yet.

Has anyone else had this issue with brakes squeaking? Any thoughts on what the issue may be?

I'm very happy with my purchase, and know its a new model. I do feel its important to see if other people have similar problems, so we as early adopters don't get stuck paying for brakes or emissions issues, because we are the first to purchase it.

I'm also have the report that the technician ran. In case any volvo technicians are out there and want to look at the results. The forum won't let me upload it because the file size is too big. Feel free to message me and I can send it directly.

Thanks in advance for any commentary

Update

My Check Engine Light has come on again. I had not pumped any gas in two weeks, so that couldn't be it.

Has anyone had this issue? It seems odd to me that it has happened twice. I bought the vehicle on April 22...

This is ridiculous. Bringing it in again for service on Thursday.

What is the OBD code? I once had a OBD code for an evap leak on a Jeep. The dealer determined that I did not have an actual leak but the sensor was in error and it would cost as much to fix the sensor as if I had a leak:(

@yakers. Thank you for the response. It was a check engine light, I believe the OBD code is: ECM-P044100 (but I'm not positive if thats the code you're looking for)

Update: Just picked my XC40 up, the dealer stated that Volvo determined it was a canister purge valve that will need to be replaced. Here is an article I googled about the piece: https://www.fiix.io/car-advice/articles/3-signs-of-a-failing-canister-purge-valve

Because it's a Volvo speciality part, it has to be ordered and next week they'll take 1-2 days to replace the part. Seems like a long time for what they say the problem is, but I'd rather them take their time...

The dealer also stated that another XC40 was coming in next week for a check engine light issue, so it may be something that is more commonplace down the road.

Hi I have check engine code on 6/11/18 evap purge valve issue, soft ware was updated no help, code came on again next day. Its for a evap purge valve, part has been on order since 6/27/18. Coming from Sweden on back order...

Purchaced car 3/24/18. @ 800 miles 3 weeks windshield cracked ( sitting in garage) volvo did agree to replace but took till 6/20 to get in (it was smashed, next one came in brackets were bent, third one installed on 6/26.

Also 4/23 had drivers door was rubbing against the fender, don't know if there was some sort of body flex issue that caused the door to rub and wind shield to crack.
So far dealer has been doing what it can parts have been the issue. I have got a loaner car for almost 3 weeks, a audi q5 so at least we have a similar loaner.

Sorry for the long post

I'm baffled when I hear that a car company puts customers in a competitor's car as a service loaner. That's a seriously stupid idea. Does your dealership sell both Volvo and Audi?

Yes they have volvo audio and Lincoln, I could of had a volvo 40 something but it's smaller the q 5 was available that was comparable comfort wise ( prefer the xc40) electronics are better.

Update

@Dcrism83 I'm sorry to hear about your experience thus far with the XC40 and appreciate the feedback with your similar issue with the canister purge valve.

After my last post on 7/13, Volvo informed me , as well that the canister purge valve was on backorder. They stated it should be here within 10 business days, so I'm expecting to hear from them any day now. (hopefully not backordered further) When I go in, I will make sure and request any additional information on the problem to share on the forum.

Were you able to get your purge valve installed yet @Dcrism83?

No I have no update, the car has been out of service for 30 days for just this issue. Total of 38 days, for everything. I've sent volvo registered letter perusing lemon law, love the car but I've waited 30 days for this part. The wind shield was cracked that took 2 months to get in I could drive with a crack, but if it was smashed it would not be drivable. The part supply network is behind in today's world parts can be shipped in days not weeks and months.
I'm afraid this get repaired what could be next.

Sent volvo a lemon law notice, and demanded it be repaired in 30 days or I wanted them to refund purchase. That got an immediate response volvo corperate was all over it (Lol) they sent a tech that claimed dealer should have been able to repair , volvo never delivered the part the dealer borrowed one from one that just came in, also since the car was in the shop for approx 50 days the rotors were rusted causing a vibration the dealer replaced all 4 car had 3000 miles. I live in Maryland, the day after, the attorney general's office contacted me i told them the problem was resolved for now. I was informed that next problem to contact attorney General office and the car would have to be refunded.
Also dealer said that if I did not do what I did I would still be waiting.

Purchased an XC40 2019 last Friday and on Sunday (driven less than 150 miles) it threw the dreaded orange check engine light. Dealer provided a loaner (another xc40). Problem could not be solved at first (after changing 2 oxygen sensors and a software update) and I was offered a swap with another brand new xc40 (same specs Millenium except gray interiors). Later told that engineers at Volvo Sweden assisted to fix the problem in the orginal car (apparently it was a sensor). I am still offered the option to swap for the other new car or keep the original car (the original car is our preference for it has the camel interiors) but we won't make a final decision until we wait to hear from the dealer as to what exactly was wrong with the car and if this might be a recurring problem. (service and problem-ownership at the dealer has been great so far).

So the dilemma is assuming the defect was fixed do we keep the original car or swap for the new one? There's no guarantee that the newer one won't have the same problem or other problems for that matter. I think in the end it boils down to choosing the model you like best because both cars will be under warranty for years to come (and to trust the advice of a rare honest dealer who offered a swap and a loaner instantly, no questions asked, which is extremely rare fir any dealer).

thoughts?

Maybe I'm onto something it's the Millenium (Momentum) model! ha. Would you accept the dealer's offer to swap cars?

Just my opinion, I would go with the swap. (Easy for me to say, I like grey interiors.) My thinking is that you get a new/low mileage car and each vehicle has its own issues, why start with one with a known problem?

Hoping it's just a glitch and not a widespread problem. We are going with the swap. It's a no mileage '19 model. Love how the suv looks and handles.

We have had the exact same issue with our XC40 check engine light twice so far cause by a small leak to the EVAP system and break noise.

I suppose these are issues that will get resolve with times.

Our got repaired but it was because we pursued lemon law dealer claimed part was on back order because Sweden goes. On holiday everyone for a month. Dealer was great gave us a loaner, finally they swapped part with a new car until part came in once replaced no complaints but because car Sat for almost 40 days tech replaced all 4 rotors due to rust causing vibration got it back and have no issues keep persuong not sure if it's good to run car with a evap code on could affect catalytic converter long term.

Depending on where you live, and your state Lemon Laws, I would stay with the original car. You're already part way there incase you need it.

I'm in md the Attorney General's office already was all over it. If I have any issue they have to repurchase car. But it has ran great and we do like it. What makes the difference was the dealer really did everything to get it repaired . Volvo in Sweden was on Holliday and no parts are available when that time comes around. All is good for now.

P0442 - Evap Leak

After almost a year of satisfied ownership and 13K miles, the check engine light came on yesterday. Used my OBDII reader to get the code:
P0442 - Powertrain
Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak)

Called the Volvo dealer and left a message, seems this is a more common problem...
