Re: Extended Warranty

My understanding was that the full factory extended warranty was only available if you took it out before the car was registered.

We took it because the mileage limitation on VAG warranties is so pitiful we’re likely to blow through it in around 2 years, and I wanted a bit more peace of mind.

Re: 18 months on.......

If you’re only doing occasional short journeys, that’s quite hard on the oil as it never gets properly warmed through, so it might be better for you to be on the fixed service.

Re: ACC behavior when car in front changes lanes

There are plenty of drivers who aren’t careful and vigilant. If more of them used ACC then maybe we wouldn’t see so many collisions on the motorway where drivers manage to drive into the back of each other. I just don't see this happening - the ACC will jam on the breaks faster than a human to prev...

Re: Speed limiters to be fitted by law in EU and UK?

The missing marks for 30/50/70 are a real bugbear for me too. For UK cars, should be able to spot at a glance where those speeds are, and not have to “work it out” or get used to it. It’s poor UI design. It’s also a nonsense having a speedo marked through to 160 - no Kodiaq can go that fast, and it ...

Re: Speed limiters to be fitted by law in EU and UK?

I can also set the "Speed Limiter" on mine, (not sure if this is available on cars with ACC). When driving in London or other major connurbations a simple press on the switch limits my speed to 30mph. Once out of the connurbation another press cancels the Speed Limiter and I'm back on normal Cruise...

Re: Ventilated Seats OR Folding Table

Personally I would pick the heated steering wheel over ventilated seats every time. I use my heated steering wheel for at least 6 months of the year, and it’s fantastic. My kids also love the heated seats in the rear. We spent 3 weeks driving around Europe last summer when the temps were mid 30s+. N...

Re: Ventilated Seats OR Folding Table

We didn't consider ventilated seats - live in the UK and prefer alcantara to leather. However, our kids love the seat back tables. My youngest (12) doesn't like doing long journeys in our other car simply because there is no table in the back. She seems to mostly use it in the angled position to hol...

Re: Strange noise like a puncture ?

Leaving the hand brake on for an extended period can cause the pad to stick to the disk. When you eventually drive off part of the pad can stick to the disk. That then makes the noise you heard as the disk rotates and that piece of pad catches in the calliper as it passes.

Re: Adblue range

It can start warning you more than 1000 miles before it runs out, which would bring you to c. 5000 miles.
