Re: Does anybody use the Skoda Connect or My Skoda apps?

I played with the Connect app when I first got the car in March, it doesn’t seem to do much, certainly not worth paying for, but on a recent trip down to Italy it would sometimes connect via my phone and the Amundsen would often warn of ‘traffic obstruction on route’ or ‘stationary traffic ahead’ an...

Re: New skoda Meteor grey 1.5 tsi sportline door rattle.

You have my sympathies, I hate having to let grease monkeys rip trims off, they never go back right but, alas, I fear you have little choice here......good luck.

Re: Engine warm-up time

Yes, curious, but oil temperature takes much longer to reach anywhere near what might be considered ‘normal’.......

Re: Beeping when locking

I think that might be normal, ours makes an 'intriguing' noise after we park / lock -up, which could be described as high pitched and I'm told it's the oil pump or water pump running to cool some vital bits.....?

Re: Beeping when locking

Could be the alarm siren backup battery on the way out, it’s a VCDS or dealer check I’d think......you could try 2 locking presses with the fob to disable the alarm though I’m not sure that would cancel the beeps, assuming of course it is the backup battery.

Re: Aircon Temperature - make it colder

Using a food thermometer inserted into the front air vent, my Karoq's aircon gets down to 8.3 degrees whereas my friend's Fabia gets down to 3 so definitely cooler on his 1.0 than on my 1.5. Very disappointing on a hot day, especially for a top spec car. Yep, only 7.5 in mine too, yet my friends Go...

Re: Permanently deactivate stop-start?

I’ve had mine disabled and it’s made my commute far more relaxed......just a simple tweak with VCDS.

Re: Amundsen navigation system

There’s persistent rumours / claims it can be done but I’ve not found anything that shows it to be true.

Re: Apple Car Play

Yes, you are correct, there’s no wireless connection on the Karoq. It’s more than a bit of a nuisance too as It’s all a bit tight behind the gear selector.

Re: Tales from the Oily Side

The ‘press’, be it motoring or MSM in general are almost all in the pocket of someone.......I believe the main reason we can’t read criticism of VW products anywhere but in forums such as this is down to the simple root of all evil, £££, all motoring ‘hack’s’ need to feed their kids and pay their bi...
