  1. Volvo V40 General Discussion

    Howzit, I'm seriously considering buying a used T3 with about 91 000km (56 000 Miles) and want to know if reliability will be a concern. I took the car on a test drive and it performs beautifully and drives smooth. Noticed a problem with the aircon not cooling properly. TIA

    Hi Folks, I'm a newbie here and planning to buy a used volvo v40 which has run 45K kilometers. I took the vehicle for a professional inspection and the mechanic informed me that the current set of tyres 225/50/R17 for V40 R-Design 2018 is making the Steering harder. And due to this it could...

    Why is that few cars offer wireless apple carplay? I know that BMW offers wireless apple carplay. The latest NX launched by Lexus Is fully loaded with tech but still does not offer wireless CarPlay. Does anyone think it would be coming to the V40?

When you press the catch it makes a noise but does not open the boot. When you push the button on the dash the boot opens as normal. Any help, advice or suggestions...
