Re: Good or less good choice?

Hi Gazza. Agree that if i weren't always just two up now, with kids all grown up , I'd need an Ateca or similar. Meant that if you go abroad for a few weeks in the vehicle you need the rear seat for extra luggage overspill . Do the same when carting stuff to the dump. Eldest son just bought a used A...

Re: Sat Nav bizarre routing

Yep, have mentioned this as well in my first post in ages. Common sense 1- SuzySatnav 0. Good to use as a walking stick not crutch! She has issues, that's for sure.

Re: Tyre pressures

Got a puncture while abroad and the screw was left in and tyre pumped daily till free to get a repair locally, which did the trick and cost Eur 29 inc balancing etc. have learned that tyre pressure monitoring will not show a pressure loss until the car is on the road and ABS operating so it can be d...

Re: Squeaky suspension

Hi Baggy. What's the latest on squeakgate? Was in a supermarket car park and tried to reproduce the noise you mention by bouncing up and down and could n't. Considered getting the wife to sit on the same seat with me for the extra weight but decided it was not worth the risk of getting arrested. Awa...

Re: Arona Recalls

Good to hear you are being sorted out Neil. Any mention of the wireless charger boost issue? Dealer convinced me my mid February build did not need it, having checked via chassis number.

Re: Wonder when we'll see it on CarWow?

Ha ha. There'll be stories of Seat paying folk's mortgage, next. But tbh, not having one makes the monthlies very fair and , divided by 52, LV Insurers are charging me £3.23. You hear of niggles but mine is saving me a fortune , ferry crossings inc. Doblo was 160 a year more due to height. Good luck...

Re: Squeaky suspension

Springs take up the strain when you get in and out. Had that on many cars and don't see the problem. Funny looks could as easily be jealousy and sour grapes. Pursue if it bugs you so much Baggy but not sure the springs can be silenced ! :? [ But the rubber bushes dry out and silicone spray may well ...

January to June and still waiting.. Takes all sorts. Taking possession saved shed loads of bills on two cars that needed to go by early March. Good luck .Such patience is admirable.

Re: Arona Recalls

Short answer, no, no contact so took bull by the horns and pestered my local dealer to book me in. Took three calls as I did not buy from them, but succeeded and the new belt unit was fitted last Friday. My advice, don't politely wait, as I tried, like you, before acting myself. Act on your own init...
