Just picked this up

Post by wakev » Sat Mar 23, 2019 7:34 pm

After 10 years they finally stopped making the yeti.

My now three year old yeti was taken in for a service and MOT, but after seeing the chap that has sold me 4 yeti's he managed to send me home in this.

Well done! Another rat :lol: (Like me) leaving the sinking Yeti ship! Only 3 Yetis for me. Much as I loved my Yetis, I don't think you will be the slightest bit disappointed! Specially with the 2.0L lump.

Welcome Kevin,

That is one smart looking new motor you have there.

Have fun,

:lol: still active on the yeti forum, but loving the Karoq sports line, done a 80 mile trip in it today :D so much go in the 2lt :D returned 47mpg and its still only done 100mls.
The Yeti was a lovely ride and drive, but this is even better :D. I was a bit apprehensive about the electric handbrake but switching on the auto function i love it :lol: , the Satnav displaying between the dials right in front of you is so much better (think that comes with virtual cockpit, might be wrong lol) .

Finding new toys to play with all the time :lol: might read the manual soon :lol: , dash cam fitted and piggy backed off the rear wiper fuse, just wish they had made the fuse board easier to access :roll: but all done.

Interesting. Although the 1.5 is eggstreeemly spritely, specially overtaking. it might be a bit under powered ( unless your 80 mile trip was flat and optimum speed.)
Best I have had out of my 1.5 DSG is 45.
Just had a thought......... you don't say....... is yours TDi or TSi? If derv that is why you have got the consumption you have and it will get better after about 4k miles!
