Re: For those fed up with stop/start.......a tip

Colin I was hoping for a way to disable it permanently. I always disable it when I remember to as it sometimes turns the engine off before I've stopped and rolling onto a roundabout I can get caught out.

Re: What annoys you about your Karoq?

I completely agree with TOM. Except his last sentence.* I use Eco all the time on my 4wd 1.5 EVO DSG, On a 40 mile cross country run yesterday I managed 44.7 mpg. Having done only 2800 miles (Therefore engine still tight) I am more than happy with that figure. * I am totally P'd off with having to ...

Sorry, missed that.
How on earth did you get that high figure.
I have only got that once when I reset the reading and then went down a long hill ;)

Re: Drive mode - remembering/storing preferred default mode

What is your chosen drive mode. Mine is normal and it stays in normal unless I pull the shift back into sport.

Re: Thinking about buying a Karoq but...

I bought a space saver spare for mine as soon as I could as it didn't come with one. Tyre pressure loss warning is very handy, last week it came up offside front, so went to the tyre depot that I used to do jobs for and one of the guys noticed straight away a screw in the tyre and repaired it right ...

Re: What annoys you about your Karoq?

Orange warning triangle

and what looked like a car with squiggly bits each side of it. Too small to see without reading specs. In orange as well. Looked in the handbook and it didn't look like the traction control warning signs. It went off and hasn't come back on so maybe nothing to worry about.

Re: KESSY

"At least KESSY should not allow you to start the car unless the key is inside the vehicle. Have fun, Ian" It doesn't! Try it. I can stand right by the open drivers door and the key is not detected. It does have to be actually IN the car. Indeed (I did, ages ago) but I do not have faith that things...

Re: New Skoda Baby SUV KAMIQ

I'm with you FPR.! I think both the Kodiaq and the Karoq are great looking cars. Being an old fashioned (old age!) sort of bloke I like SUVs and estate cars to look like what they were originally designed for, load lugging. That's why I had three Yetis. The slopey back SUVs And 'Tourers' (as modern...
