Thanks for your inputs so far guys.

Collected my car over the weekend and drove back home. 200 mile drive from dealership to home. Lincoln to Kent.

Just loving it, even my 3 year old son is so excited. keeps peeping out of the window and shouting "i want to go out in the Volvo XC90” :)

turned a lot of heads

I haven’t been able to try a lot of features yet. Will try them soon.
My initial observations.

1. Collection - handover process was good overall. I was at the dealership for just over 2 hours. People buying through finance will have an additional work of 20-30 mins signing a heap load of papers.
2. Goodies - I had asked for and got 'a tank full diesel' and '1 week drive away insurance complementary'
3. VoC - Service for 3 years provided. Haven’t explored all the functions
4. Polestar - got the polestar upgrade done and gearbox is so responsive. I could feel the difference between the car I test drove in May to this one. One thing to note is that the polestar badge may not be readily available with the dealer, like in my case. It will be sent by post.
5. Large size SUV but drives like a small car, easy to manoeuvre around. Used PA II on the motorway and drive was effortless. Combined with Adaptive cruise control. driving was never so easy. Just loving it.
6. Sensus - No issue with Sensus display so far (no reboots or freezing). Tried to recreate some of the scenarios reported by other members on the forum. All OK so far. Playing music can be better, or may be its me trying to get used to new system. Sound quality of the standard system is good for me.
7. Navigation - found it quick and responsive and accurate.
8. Tailgate opening worked fine 100% so far
9. Noise levels - I didn’t find it particularly intruding except for two patches on a Motorway. It is in the acceptable limits so far, again this is a subjective thing.
10. Insurances - A lot of varieties of covers were explained (tyre insurance, wheel insurance, cosmetic insurance, gap insurance, etc...), I haven't taken anything so far. Asked for some extra time to decide.

Happy with the purchase so far and looking forward to a lot of long drives. Driving is effortless in this car.

As I had mentioned earlier there are a lot of features I am yet to explore. so I have only got this positive feedback so far :)

Note - Some of the detail is specific to members in UK.

Congratulations!

Last month I went on a 2-week holiday and the longest drive was about 1100km (all motorway and about 14hours including multiple stops for coffee :) ) and the drive was effortless even with just the cruise control.

I know you will love this car!

Thank you :)

I haven't got many pics, will take some over the weekend.

Have a couple on my system but how do we attach them here? It seems to ask for a url link??

Should I first upload to any website and then paste the link? any known free websites for this please?

suggestions please

Congratulations!!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

The easiest way to upload pics is to take them using a mobile device and then upload them directly from the same device via the Tapatalk app. Uploading pics via a computer seems to be a high-friction process, for some reason (you have to upload the pic to a third party image hosting site and then link to them in your post).

Oooh, nice!!! Since you're in the frigid North, what do you plan to do for tires when the white stuff starts falling?
