Welcome to the forum! Hopefully this means you'll be taking delivery in the next few weeks. Are you coming from another Volvo or new to the brand?

i bet that you're the type of person that might also like the BMW X2. Both seem to share similar driving characteristics and it can get even better if Polstar launches their own version, which they should.

Ok lovely people its been 6 days since we picked the xc40 up the boss loves it the only gripe she has is the lane assist motorways ok but even when your overtaking parked cars it comes on it can get dangerous so thats been turned of the opening of the boot you must have keys near it to work everytime will keep you posted i cant get near it to drive it yet she wont let me lol
Oh and she said weres me cd player to play me music it aint got one lol and its got adblue you can see that in settings

Wickster, thank you so much for the updates on the "Bosses" XC40! I'm glad she is enjoying the vehicle for far. Are you in an overseas location? I won't receive my XC40 until mid December (Nebraska, USA) so I'm living the dream thru all those who have there's already. There should be apps on the info center for her to find her tunes since she can't play her CD's (LOL)! :smile

Wickster, thanks again for the update. I'm sure the "Boss" is enjoying driving the vehicle and will let you not only wash it but drive it someday as well!:wink I'm only a few days away from getting my XC40 (released from the port in New Jersey last week) so I'm very anxious and excited as well! Take care!

Ok lovely people the boss rang me the other day coming home from work in a panic ive got a warning light on,what does it say something about blue,oh i said thats adblue warning i said so after 4000miles the low adblue came up but it had 1500miles left so i went to shell and bought some adblue 4.7 litre one 拢11.99 拢 sign is english by the way lol and topped it up filler next to the diesel cap easy peasy volvo say you dont need to fill up between yearly services but the had just reached 4000 miles depending on driving style they say i say she thinks shes a racing driver .
