Make the 12v sockets ignition switched and not permanent live.
Or even make them switchable between permanent live and ignition switched?
That would be the utopian solution ..

Keep the rotary volume wheel on the steering wheel still ‘active’ when you switch off the ignition.

Caught me out a couple of times and then had to knock the volume down on the touch screen.

Also, personal choice, put a button in the central dash area for the heated steering wheel controls, like the buttons for the seats.

That would be good, but hopefully you are aware that you can use the heated seat button to simultaneously switch on both seat and steering wheel heating? This also overlays the heating controls on the screen for a few seconds, so you can set the individual heating requirements on the screen without having to delve down through the menus. The option to link the steering wheel to the heated seat button is in the A/C settings menu. Once you have set this up, if you want, for example, only steering wheel heating then you can press the physical (heated seat) button to activate both seat and wheel, then press the "off" control for the seat on the screen.
Obviously not as good as a dedicated button for the steering wheel, but better than navigating the menus every time you want warm hands!

Excellent thread !

Totally agree with:
Drive mode should be retained after ignition on/off
12 volt sockets ignition switched - the permanent live is my biggest gripe with the car so far, bloody pain for the dashcam
Rotary volume control on steering wheel should still be active after ignition off
Load cover retraction weak and no intermittent positions
Door thingys no real benefit, not fit for purpose and ridiculous price to replace

But actually quite handy for tyre inflators or running a small fan for the dogs in the boot during the summer as we do. Horses for courses :D

By doing what? The car will be designd for most people, rather than the few. Most people will want to connect things like a tyre inflator, or a phone charger. In both cases, it’s nice not to have to have the ignition on.

You won't leave a tyre inflator both connected and running, and if you leave your phone in the car and on charge, it will get fully charged, and then take only a tiny fraction of an amp. Leaving it for a week should make no appreciable difference. And surely you’d notice your phone was missing.

Dashcam? Well, if it’s your car, get it wired in.

What about your dog that you leave in the car during the summer with a fan running ? Assume you mean when you’re not in the car otherwise you’d have the ignition on ?

My Battery went dead on my Kodiaq returned to dealer, they charged it and could find no fault, went completely a couple of months later called Skoda assistance AA turned up and said battery was at fault, took back to dealer again and requested a new battery, but they did not accept this explanation, they had the car for a couple of days and eventually the fault showed up new battery was fitted been ok so far. persist with your problem
