Current carWell, I bit the bullet - the V40 has gone to the dealers as a trade in against a shiny new(er) S90 D4.
The V40 was the best car I ever had, hopefully the S90 will surpass all my expectations.
Chip, it almost broke my heart to get rid of it, but it was starting to exhibit the symptoms that others with a D2 have complained about, so I got rid of it before it turned into a money pit. I was very happy with the £6k trade in I got..... in a few more weeks I fell it may have been undriveableCurrent car

The one you have traded would be my ideal replacement car if I had to buy one today.
I hope you got a decent trade in!
With mine, a few weeks into owning the clutch started groaning on the bite, warranty replaced clutch, cylinder and flywheel 3 times in less than 18 mths. The most recent repair lasted around 2k miles, the noise began to come back. Other than that, a faultless but very costly way to drive 14000 milesWhat issues were you having with your D2?
The expansion tank was over-pressurising and reporting low coolant level. On the way to trade it in there was a total loss of power (on the outside lane of the motorway)What issues were you having with your D2?
