Re: Crunchy sound at low speeds

If it is noticeable when turning sounds like a driveshaft joint or bearing. Must be a manufacturing fault as bearings should be ok for years so should be changed under warranty for free However check the front tyres for wear on both inner and outer shoulders (just park with wheels turned and visuall...

Re: Arona 1.6 Diesel 95hp Fuel efficiency!

All new cars have tight engines initially,
can take 3000 miles (5000 Km) during which it gradually gets better

I have the petrol, but was about 12% worse in its early days.

Re: winter / all season tyres

There's a huge selection of All Season tyres available in 225/40r18 and the difference in speedo accuracy is only 2 percent. Having checked 7J rims are ok for this width. I fail to see a downside. The main downside is 40 profile, if you live in parts of the country with some pretty poor road surfac...

Re: Car in transit?

Just done so. Worse news possible. Wasn't on that boat. I've escalated it to management as I fail to see how the car can leave the factory on 13th Aug yet not be on a boat by the 25th! Now being told I won't get it until very late september / early oct as it won't be leaving Barcelona until Sun 22n...

Re: Wireless Charging installed later?

I have wireless charging, but find it makes the phone very hot so only use it rarely. (I have a Samsung S9) I just bought a short lead and plug it in the USB socket, tend to use this as google traffic re-routes you if there are delays. When plugged in, the phone charges anyway. Wireless charging is ...

Re: She’s here and she’s gorgeous

With VW finance, can repay (without any early exit penalty) if you repay within cooling off period 14 days. Just have to pay few days interest as you did. In practice have to wait few days for paperwork to be processed, then call (days 4-12 work best), don’t leave it to last couple of days as might ...

Re: winter / all season tyres

Do people change all 4 wheels to winter tyres or just the front drive wheels ? Should change all 4 (not mix summer and winter) Although no one will openly say so (in case of accident), seems to be common practice to have just 2 all seasons, with 2 summer tyres on the back. Debatable if this is any ...
