        Ordered mid January now told expected May build and depending when in May, May have it June. I’m not expecting it just as I’m not expecting a MY24 despite my dealership saying that’s what I’m getting. Maybe, but can’t see how if the factory was retooled. Still hoping to be surprised and agree, am sure non MB customers don’t get the same treatment from Volvo. It all started so well and look now!!

          Actually I recall it was the same with my previous car, a Ford kuga, a third party was used for tinted windows, I’m sure that was what they said or am I dreaming it!

              The camera was one of the important factors for me so I would really like to know which version is being built for my car. I understand my dealership can only go on what they’ve been told but I’m doubtful they’ve been updated on the latest facts. Just hope I’m wrong.

                I have asked the question about my May build and MY24 v MY25 today and the reply was that my car was confirmed as MY24 and will arrive as ordered!
                So I’m confused about the retooling, is that 100% correct? If so then I’m not sure how the MY24 build can happen? Any further info on that please?

                    Are private buyers getting this level of ‘service’ from Volvo? Sign up for a MY24 and get delivered a My25 without any discussion beforehand? I’d be interested to know.

                      It just seems you enter a contract whether it be with Motability or Volvo for a car with x y and Z and you’re given a car with a b and c without any consultation! I don’t go into curry’s to collect my pre ordered fancy fast spin washing machine and happily accept one with a much slower spin just because they assumed I would and they could! It’s the principle of it that really grates me!

                        This so baffles me! If we order something with certain specs as the MY24 that it seems ok by Volvo to supply something different without any discussion?! With two neck fusions I need a 360 camera but understand it’s not on the My25. I’m at a what where and how now even more than a when! We were supposed to have our car now and yet it’s got a presumed build date of sometime in May. What a shambles.

                          Well I have just emailed our dealership to ask about our April / May arrival and have been informed that they have received a spreadsheet that shows our build date will be May. Build date! ? I am surprised and very disappointed this news wasn’t voluntarily shared with me as soon as they knew.
                          I am wondering what version that will mean now and how long from build date to arrival with us.

                            Heard this yesterday, ordered my ex30 just under 4 weeks ago, emailed dealer yesterday afternoon to ask what the situation is and if my order has gone through…….no response! Apparently all will hear what their order situation is by this Friday? Fingers crossed …….

                            I hope you hear back soon.
                            Where did you hear that news about hearing about our orders on Friday please? Fingers crossed indeed!

                              I’m so sorry Rich that’s all terrible.
                              Who said you might be charged for the tyre? On what basis?! I’ve never heard that before!

                                Oh crumbs I didn’t know about the rule change, when did that happen? Ours was extended on our car over 20000 and with no adaptions last July, we are waiting for our ordered car now. I would think it’s worth a challenge as you said.

                                  I’ve been in touch with my dealer / salesperson and they’ve said they’re still told it’s end April / early May. Hope so! Time will tell! I ordered mid January 2024.

                                    I ordered my XC40 mild hybrid early January 2024, advised via email yesterday, still on track for early/mid April 2024.

                                    I haven’t heard anything about mine yet but I hope yours comes when they say, I’m looking forward to mine whenever it arrives!

                                      Embee, it’s good to know you had a good experience like mine too, I couldn’t fault ours at all, I felt equal to every other valued customer and nothing was too much trouble for Ben our advisor. I loved my test drive and the lumbar support, heated deterring wheel and the seat extensions are great for me.

                                        So sorry you had that experience with those two retailers.
                                        Have you considered the Volvo xc40? We had fantastic service from them and it has great head room and memory seat adjustment. I’ve ordered one after a great test drive, great AP, so thought I would just mention it.

                                        Good luck with whatever you choose.

                                          Oh yikes Chris that doesn’t sound so good! I hope you get it sooner than later! Me too! I’m not in a rush though so happy to see what happens for a while and hope for the best! Watch this space! Good luck! Great car choice by the way! ??
