Sorry to see it go!

Post by GeoffH » Fri May 03, 2019 2:39 pm

After problems with zero throttle response and the bunny hop syndrome I have decided to give the car back to the leasing company.
It’s a real shame as I do like the car but three weeks in the garage in three months ownership, I have had enough.
The dealer tells me they have done the update and there are no more due for my car.
This is a great shame as I spent £600 on Vredestein Wintrack Extreme winter tyres which have only covered about 1000 miles. I have tried to put them on Briskoda for sale for about £250 but even though I’m a Freedom Member it won’t let me... a shame this site doesn’t have a for sale section!

SWMBO is on her second Puggy 2008. The only reason we are on number two is after an injury she needed an automatic, so we got a 1.2 Petrol Automatic with every option available and it’s very comfortable and gives great economy.
So in answer to your question I have ordered a Puggy 3008 GT Line Premium 1.6 automatic.
We have gone totally petrol and the only problem we find is we can’t hear whether the engine is running at junctions!
I have had several vehicles from the VAG family but the 1.5 problems have sickened me so on to pastures new, for me anyway.

Just ordered my Karoq SE L DSG, bit worried about hearing of the kangarooing and now this problem you have experienced. Is this common?

I am on my second 1.5 DSG. Both have been kangaroo free, apart from a couple of times.
I think it is due to petrol starvation when cold. If it does occurs, a quick 'blip' on the loud pedal should sort it.
Fear not!
