From an article in the Big Issue early last week:
“The hearing began on Wednesday at the Royal Courts of Justice in London and is due to wrap up on Friday. It could take up to six weeks for the court to deliver a decision.”
XC40 T5 Recharge defrosted and warmed up ready to leap into and I haven’t left the house. Wintry…
The problem with that, Glos Guy, is that it would require manufacturers to commit to still making the offered cars six months ahead, or more orders would end up being cancelled as models change.
Good response Tim. I do believe Motability should be responding to the present situation by using some it’s millions of reserves to incentives dealers to supply cars to the scheme. But, of course, we hear nothing from them…
Sadly true. The viability of the Motability scheme is under threat.
Ronz UK, your dealer may agree to place the order with VW now, and put it through Motability on your renewal date. Glos Guy did this with his BMW, I recall. Worth asking..
Another 6000 by my reckoning.
Have had heated seats in our last four cars but have never used them. First time I tried them it felt like I’d wet myself… MrsW wouldn’t have a car without, however.
It was one reason we chose the Inscription over the R-Design. In a low car you maybe inclined to drop down into the seat but in a tall one there’s more of a need to slide.
I’m sure there’d be trouble with Trading Standards, amongst others if advertised features weren’t delivered. More likely (and certainly in the case of Volvo) optional extra packages which include features like cross traffic alert are simply not available until the chip shortages are resolved. All cars have to meet safety standards and insurers work with manufacturers to make each generation safer than the last. No-one is selling unsafe cars, despite whatever the Irish Times might say.November 23, 2021 at 11:41 am in reply to: They want to limit over 60’s to driving at limited times. #169804
More and more rules huh? The rot set in when they made seat belt compulsory…November 23, 2021 at 10:04 am in reply to: They want to limit over 60’s to driving at limited times. #169797
Holding a mobile phone in a car? Hangings too good for such people! How about a sense of proportion?
I’m told cat litter does the job too.November 21, 2021 at 2:53 pm in reply to: EV repair costs driving up fleet insurance premiums #169671
Economics 101: the more money you print the less it’s worth.
Three years of “quantitive easing” by the world’s banks following Keynesian economic nonesense is now inevitable reaching a reckoning.
I would never rely on my phone to get in my car. Battery could go flat, signal could be bad. I’ d always want to carry the key. Just goes along with the house key. Hardly a burden, is it?November 19, 2021 at 4:09 pm in reply to: All in-car mobile phone use to be banned, unless it’s ‘hands-free’ #169549
Push-to-talk hand held two way radios are perfectly legal to use at the wheel.
Does this help?
2022 XC40. New headlights, new front bumper, Android Automotive infotainment and apparently new seats – my guess is fake leather, as Volvo is going all vegan..
It’s having a minor facelift. Hopefully it will be back soon.
Well, what’s your opinion, Micky?
Congratulations, Gary. I treat petrol in the XC40 as an investment for the future. I try hard not to use any.
Not commenting on the merits of the case, but the government doesn’t have any money to lose. It’s our money, lent to the government to spend wisely in our interests!
Well, it didn’t show up the first time! So you got it twice…
