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...

Re: Auto stop start delay please!

Update; Following on from my post above, it seems Skoda can be clever when it wants to be. I've found that despite me having the 'auto hold' 'off' the original 'hill hold' control still works in the background, just as it does on our ageing Golf.....nice.

Re: Auto stop start delay please!

I'm sure that given enough time I could master the art of 'left foot braking' but for now it's a no, no, scary stuff....highlights just how quick the vehicle can stop!

Re: Auto stop start delay please!

I'm with you GeoffH, collected my new Karoq last week and the first roundabout I came too, exactly the same happened, coasted up, didn't come to a halt but, unbeknown to me the engine was stopped, spotted a gap and nothing for what seemed like ages and off like a rocket.....damn that EC and its pett...

Re: Front tyres feathering

I wouldn't know myself, it's a dark art the science of steering geometry adjustments, but, without a little 'toe-in' I'd suspect you'd lose the self centering effect?

Re: Front tyres feathering

The Karoq does seem to have a curious 'days gone by look' to the steering geometry.

When parked / driven on full lock the inside radius wheel has a very pronounced 'akimbo' appearance to it?

Easy to see how the outside edge would be scrubbed if doing many tight turns.....
