I am seeing a lot of issues with warped rotors for the XC40. Is this something that affects the recharge also? I'm scared because this is a wear component that the dealer may or may not cover depending on their mood. Also what happens when it's out of warranty? Are people just paying for new rotors every 10,000-20,000 miles??

Brakes on EVs are much less prone to wear due to the use of regenerative braking. That being said, some people have had issues with the parking brake rusting closed and there was a replacement done.

Maintenance costs should be much less than an ICE XC40 overall.

Warped rotors seems to be a Volvo thing (not exclusive to Volvo). My wife has a T5 and it has been flawless now at 2500 miles. I am one with the rusted pads/rotors issues, but the brakes really do not get used heavily unless you do aggressive braking. That said with my latest issue it is clear the P8 applies the friction brakes a bit even during regen, my guess os to prevent rust/gunk from building up on the pads/rotors.
