Hi all,

First post, because I could not find an answer in the search function... hopefully some of you will know. I just purchased a 2005 S40 (2.4i, automatic transmission, no other options/packages).

I don't fully trust the dealer with giving me a straight answer, hence the following questions:

1. I am told by the dealer that there is no cover to the diagnostics outlet plug by the hood lever (by the driver's left knee)? However, the owner's manual clearly shows and states that there should be a cover to this outlet. How are your cars? Cover or not? Is this specific to US models?
2. The owner's manual also mentions the "rear park assist" system, and, unlike other features does not specify that it is an option - which would imply that it is not... I doubt it, and imagine it is an oversight in the manual, but can anyone confirm?

Thanks for your help.

I have never seen an S40 with a cover over the OBDII diag plug.Im not sue why they showed one in the owners manual.

Als the backup alarm is an option.If you want to know if you have it or not look at your rear bumper and see if there is 4 sensors mounted in the rear bumper.If not then you don't have it.

I don't blame you for not trusting the dealer but sometimes you have to.With everything i know it came from working at the dealer.

Thanks for your reply. I appreciate your insights -- my reservations regarding the dealer are mostly due to the poor answers I have gotten from them since I purchased the car, and even before that. For example, they left the "customer prep" card (without even pretending to have completed it or attempted to) with the user manual in the car for me to enjoy...

So I just wanted to check with actual owners and/or unbiased specialists.
Thanks again!
