      Hi, not new to the forum but cannot recall username or password so have registered again! The forum is as always forever helpful.

      Ive just signed up for a Volvo xc40 petrol automatic soft hybrid in Pearl white after a great test drive and excellent service from ‘Ben’ at Crawley showroom. Was a little tempted by the pale blue but it seemed a little too flat for me and I always love white! Felt very informed, valued and happy with our choice. May date given but I’m not banking on that but was assured to contact him anytime for updates. Seamless application accompanied by coffees.
      Currently have a Peugeot 3008 and will be happy to wave it goodbye but my other half not as much so! ?

          I actually drove like miss daisy once to test, Swansea to London on the M4, approx 180 miles of straight road, cruise control at 60mph, and returned about 62 mpg.

            Soooo… had the call this Eve, collection Friday and time booked in! It’s all systems go…Superb timing from docks to transportation up here ….
            Now for the drama 🤦🏼‍♀️

            The car that has been delivered IS my original order, from December (Higher Ap) But that’s just the ARN (order number) once in build it’s the MY25!.. Don’t worry obvs not paying no higher AP and was expecting the MY25, ok fine with this.

            My 2nd order in February is currently being built for July delivery…. ALONG WITH a 3rd Car in my name!?
            My dealer was just banging his head against a brick wall with fleet order, it’s the biggest mess I’ve ever experienced in my entire life

            My silver lining is my car is here I shall send proof of life on Friday, and to the other cars that are in my name and on the production line…. Erm 🫤 PASS 🤦🏼‍♀️

                Great news Steph😄👍

                And the Volvo CLOWN show continues! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 You really couldn’t make it all up, could you? Just when many of us on this thread who’ve ordered 6+ months ago think it couldn’t get any more farcical … it does! I think it’s only fair now that you get all 3 cars. lol 😂 😜

                Did you read the EX-30 threads? Poor people getting their orders cancelled now because the cars are so full of faults and problems Volvo refusing to supply them. How Volvo were ever let back onto Motability after being removed a couple of months ago I really don’t know. It’s just not fair or right that sick & disabled people with plenty of problems as it is should have to suffer even more stress and headaches dealing with these utter imbeciles who can’t seem to run a booze up in a brewery! 😡

                I’m so glad I jumped ship and zero regrets (it was damaging my health trying to get honesty from these clowns!) even though I had to pay a lot more for a car but I really feel for you all still waiting and hope you all get the just outcome you all rightly deserve and very soon. 🙏

                  Great news Steph mine wasn’t far behind!

                  Well well well I’ve had the call. 😍 I’m collecting my car this Friday am! Relief no more taxis!! Only 7 1/2 months (advised 3)
                  Will I need plastic mats?
                  Better start writing a list of questions too! What do I need to know? I’ve picked up it might break unexpectedly and the speed limit buzzer will be annoying so need turning off so far!
                  Good luck everyone still waiting, it was quick from manufacture to delivery as 2 1/2 weeks. The only think I can think of that Volvo has done competently! Karen & her daughter’s car! 🚙

                    Our car reportedly departed the manufacturer. All I want to know is how long does it take to get to the UK and then to our car dealer.

                      Mine was reportedly manufactured on the 18th June and delivered 28th June. They’ve rung today for collection on Friday 5th so 2 1/2 weeks maybe to Gloucester. Seems quite quick.
                      Hope it’s quick for you too.

                        @UncJ it’s just beggars belief, the emotions we’ve been through to get to this point!! I laugh now at the farcical but I wasn’t laughing a few months ago!! 😮‍💨

                        No I didn’t read about the Leccy cars!!! Oh no that’s blinkin awful!! I’ll keep my Volvo for the 3 years etc but certainly when I come to change I’ll be thinking long and hard!

                        @Nshaw Yaaaaay both collecting Friday morning! Hurrah for us 🎉 and no more taxis for you and your Daughter, bless her! To be honest I’ve no questions for them on collection, I just want to sign on the dotted line and get the heck out of there! No point asking anything because they don’t know 😅😅 just sign up and tootle off and have a wonderful ride out with your family, really pleased for you Karen… and Daughter 💚

                        Out of 47 of us on this 1 thread, there’s been a handful of Cars collected, and 1 Cancelled by the customer, I sincerely hope the 40 odd of you are not far behind and this whole situation is over. Good Luck all 🩵

                          About 2 weeks to get to your dealer from Zeebrugge Frank. And then your 4 day waiting period.

                                Very nice Steph, same colour as mine would have been. Looks nicer with the MY25 bigger wheels too. 😁👍

                                Finally got there, phew. 🙏

                                  Well done MrsL83 mission accomplished 🤩

                                  All went to plan with collection today. Given 1/2 tank of petrol and an apology and I did get the £750 seat upgrade removed.

                                  Spent time showing me the features but I keep calling her Alexa instead of Google!

                                  Think my branch has 40 motability orders and only 3 had arrived. Mine was the first order on 4th December. UncJ would have been second I think. He did say now they can be ordered from stock so maybe thats why some much newer orders have been arriving and overtaking our Dec/Jan orders. Not fare

                                  Really hope Volvo up their game it wasn’t a pleasant ride.
                                  Going to the Garden Center for a treat and no more taxis!! 🎉🎉🎉

                                  Can’t work out how to post a photo sorry but it’s really here and I parked in the biggest space I could find!
                                  Bye all, lovely meeting you all on this roller coaster ride! Hope everyone else’s arrive very soon. Karen & her daughter 🚙

                                    Just returned from placing my order for a Vapour Grey XC40.
                                    Extremely happy that the AP decreased by £1,000 in the Q3 update! Now just the long wait for delivery…

                                      Update! My car is at the dealership and at long last I will collect it next week!
                                      Down date.. my calendar has just notified me my MOT is due at the end of this month and for the life of me I can’t decipher what the motability site means about handover and mots and extended leases, now I’m worried! Do I need to get one before returning it or not?! Please! Anyone know for certain? Thank you.

                                        Yes you’ll need to get the car MOTd before handover. It’s standard practice.

                                        Just book it in at your current supplying dealership or whichever dealer has done the servicing.

                                              I took a XC40 out for a test drive yesterday, and although they look pretty cool outside, the inside felt small and seats were not very supportive. When we got back in our 3 year old Tiguan, the seats and space were night and day. So we’ve actually extended our lease for another 2 years, so we’ve decided to just keep this car.

                                               

                                              We will be going to see the new Tiguan though, and see if we want to pay the £5k down payment on the new R line

                                                To add, there were atleast 10 maybe more XC40 thar had just been delivered to Swansea, they were sitting in the yard, begin prepared for the customers.
