      Silver Plastic Peeling Around the Air Vents

      XC40 owners might want to keep an eye on the silver coloured plastic on their air vent surrounds. The vent is alluminium but the surround is made from a cheaper silver coloured plastic material. Mine has started to peel already after only 20 months. I've never cleaned it so not a great sign for a £40,000 car intended for long term ownership. I think Volvo might need to address this problem quickly. I plan to raise this with Volvo before my warranty expires, don't want a bill for this one.

      I think this is happening to my XC40 to Fluffy. I haven’t used any harsh chemicals on it and only noticed after you mentioned it.
