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...

Re: What did you drive before the Karoq?

I had a Yeti 4x4 Outdoor Diesel with DSG. I loved the car but had to change it to a car I could sit in the passenger seat with leg in plaster (I’m 6’7”) so swapped for a BMW X1 which I suffered for 14 months.... the seat was in leather and had raised stitching where the seat catches just under the t...

Re: Heated Windscreen

I had the heated windscreen on my Yeti and it was a no-brainer when ordering the Karoq, but this time I added heated steering wheel as well as the heated screen as I have a circulation problem in my hands and they get very cold... the heated steering wheel solves the problem. One thing which some do...

Re: Auto stop start delay please!

If it cuts out at a junction...... turn the steering wheel slightly and it will restart, making it safer for a quick exit!
