Re: 1.5 Diesel DSG

With the speed limiter set, you can still accelerate through your set speed with a "persuasive" push on the accelerator. Treat it a bit like a kick down on an older style auto-box.

Have fun,

Ian,
You jest!
When did you last get a new car with a full tank? That would cost the dealer £50-60!
Last time I took delivery. And the time before that...

...I tend to make it the final hurdle that will seal the deal, if they want the sale they will give in :)

Have fun,

Re: Unable to open fuel filler flap

I would moan at the dealer and ask why you needed to open the fuel filler cap so soon. Given the price of new cars, they could at least have filled it up for you...

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Key failure with no warning

Wiggie, a spare in the car would be no help at all if you are locked out of the car. I simply bought four CR2025 batteries from Amazon and replaced the battery in both my keys and both of my wife's. Then I made a note in my diary for the same day next year to repeat the exercise. Around a fiver a ye...

Re: Karoq Edition 1.5 TSI DSG - Advice on Tekky Stuff

Traffic jam assist requires Lane assist, dsg gearbox and adaptive cruise control. If you have all three you have the traffic jam assist. I got it by accident, I wanted the blind spot warning which came bundled with lane assist. I actually did not know about the traffic jam assist until I had had the...

Re: Heko wind deflectors

I have a set of 4 Heko deflectors. They fit and work well, allowing me to park with the windows open enough to get a little air through the car without it being obvious that the windows are not closed. No problems with the auto-folding mirrors.

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Modified rear lights

Each to their own. Personally, I rather like the taillights, it is one of the few parts of the overall design that is distinctive and recognisable as a Karoq rather than just another euro box SUV.

Just my personal view. If you like the added reflector strips, that's great.

Have fun,


Ian.

Re: Key failure with no warning

Colin, No, I did not use the physical key as it was dark, so I could not see which handle end cover to remove (and the book does not make that clear, now that I have checked again). I also had no tools other than the key and nothing with which to protect the paintwork. I was not helped by the batter...

Key failure with no warning

Yesterday the battery in my key died. No warning that it was low, no apparent reduction in operating range. It worked to get me to my destination but when I returned to the car nothing. No response from the car, no red light on the key… Fortunately, I was only about 10 miles from home and so could g...
