Re: Sorry to see it go!

SWMBO is on her second Puggy 2008. The only reason we are on number two is after an injury she needed an automatic, so we got a 1.2 Petrol Automatic with every option available and it’s very comfortable and gives great economy. So in answer to your question I have ordered a Puggy 3008 GT Line Premiu...

Sorry to see it go!

After problems with zero throttle response and the bunny hop syndrome I have decided to give the car back to the leasing company. It’s a real shame as I do like the car but three weeks in the garage in three months ownership, I have had enough. The dealer tells me they have done the update and there...

Re: 1.5 Kangarooing system update.

Kodiak’s posting explains why I was told my Karoq was ready to be collected after the update, then got a call to say it wasn’t, then told I could collect it! I was then told they weren’t allowed to do anymore updates. On the positive side, it mightn’t have solved the Kangaroo Syndrome, but it SEEMS ...

Re: Auto stop start delay please!

As Ford Pop Racer says... it can cut the engine even when rolling slowly to a junction. Recently I was coming up a slight incline to a roundabout. I slowed right down but didn’t actually stop. The engine cut, but I wasn’t aware as it’s so quiet after my X1 diesel. The car then stopped (without me us...

Re: No Throttle Response when cold (Intermittent)

Update.... yet again I had no throttle response having driven 1 mile and stopped to buy a paper. Outside temperature 2.2 degrees. I restarted, engaged Diive, released the footbrake and nothing happened. (No warning lights, auto handbrake on, stop start on.) Rather than releasing the throttle and t...

Re: No Throttle Response when cold (Intermittent)Mind

SEE thread here and on Kodiaqforums re '1.5 TSi Kangarooing'. Vast number of comments on this VAG problem. Dealers advise that solution will be available Q2. Hmm, We'll see. Mine isn’t the bunny hop problem. I can put the throttle to the floor and nothing at all happens! This can be at startup or b...

No Throttle Response when cold (Intermittent)

I have a 1.5 DSG Karoq. I wonder if anyone else has had the following intermittent fault.... When engine is cold or below approx 70 degrees, sometime when I start up it starts perfectly, I engage Drive, foot off the brake and I can put the accelerator pedal to the floor and nothing happens at all. T...

Re: Good Reviews of 1.5 engine!

I've had my 1.5 TSI manual Skoda Karoq for a week. I love the design/drive except for the fact I keep 'stalling' at junctions and kangaroo hopping until I get up to about 20mph. Initial I though it was my driving position, but I am glad I found this forum. I frequently have to pull away from very b...

Re: Lovin' the frosty mornings

I love the frosty mornings but my 1.5 DSG Karoq doesn’t. On day two of ownership it was frosty. The engine fired up, put into drive and pushed down on the accelerator pedal... down.... down... to the floor..Nothing at all. The pedal went down twice and I didn’t get any revs until the third time I pr...

Re: LED headlights - one disadvantage I had not considered

Ian’s posting confirms the worry I had about automatic beam assist when ordering my Karoq. I love “gadgets” but eventually decided beam assist was a gizmo too far for me and didn’t opt for it. I’m sure many will be happy with it but having driven in excess of 1.5 million miles, starting with a dip/m...
