Has anybody noticed that there is a considerable gap on the inside of all doors vertically as you open the doors between the metal and the plastic padding?
Mine is large enough that you can look inside. After talking to the salesman i called volvo greece and was checked by the technical director. The answer was that it is so in order to avoid noises and it is common on all v40's.
Common sense and experience (i bet in all cars there is no gap between the plastics on the door and the metal) suggests that this is an assembly fault not worthy of the 24 000 euros i paid.
A major disappointment so far.
