Not sure where to post this but...

We just took delivery of our very first Volvo, the XC40 of course, on Friday. A few blocks from the dealer, coming out of a stop sign, it stalled. It didn’t turn off or lock up, the gas peddle just stopped sending gas to the engine. Seems like a faulty fuel pump. The only fix was turning the car off and back on again after 15 seconds. We immediately called the dealer and slowly returned it to the dealer to get it fixed. They still have it.

Should I be worried? Should I request a whole new car? Anything I should ask whenever, hopefully, they fix it?

We loved it while it worked (for about 10 min)!

Did it have a check engine code.?
I would wait and see what they find.
I've had evap purge codes, cracked windshield, driver door had To be realigned. Each time dealer bent over backwards to acomidate, we also got a courtesy loaner. Keep your records and if it has multiple issues you can persue lemon law. Im not there yet but will if problems continue. It is a new car but is well built and well rated there might be issues but the systems are used on multiple lines and should be reliable.
The biggest problem for us has been parts on back order...

Thanks for the reply. There were no dashboard lights or messages anywhere, which was odd but also why I thought it was the fuel pump and not the engine. We have a loaner for the weekend but hope to learn more early next week. Will keep records and a careful eye over our first Volvo, thats for sure.

Wow:surprise, glad you made it back and you got a loaner. Yes to what was said, find out what went wrong, how it was fixed and keep good records. Being a new design we are part of the learning curve, the price of 'early adoptore'. But too many problems and I would want a new car or a different model. Electrical systems on modern cars are fiendishly complicated, just a small rubbing wire can cause intermitent problems. Surprised ther wasn't a Check Engine Light and an OBD code.
