Re: Folding door mirrors

As with other removed features, it's one less thing that could potentially be a warranty claim, should there be a fault with it.
If they can still sell all they make, then it make sense, to Seat, to minimise costs.
I wonder, what will disappear from the menus next?

Re: Biggest Arona Niggle

DynkH Why ever did you get an Arona? Surely, as these items, that have not been a significant problem to me, are obviously an issue to you, some checks would have been made prior to getting the Arona?
One or two of the items on your list are less than ideal but that's the same with most cars.

Re: Heated Windscreen Washer Jets

I think it must either be on all the time or is activated by a temperature relay as mine just works when I need it to without pressing anything extra.

Re: Side mirrors too small

All cars will be different. Different can be good.
I do have the blind spot warning lights, which work very well but as BigFatPaulie said 'you soon adapt'.
Change will happen, change has happened. Adapt or stay sad ;-)

Re: Rusting brake discs

If you are concerned about the rusty appearance, just gently apply the brakes for a couple of minutes off and on. That's what would normally happen in use, unless your driving is all open road with no braking.

Re: Views on Stop/Start?

I'm a fan of the stop start system. It stops the engine when I stop the car and starts again when I take my foot off the break. It never stops the engine when the car is moving. That sounds strange. I would never switch it off, that would defeat the object of the system for saving fuel and trying t...

Re: Views on Stop/Start?

I find that it STOPS at walking pace. When I slow for pedestrians crossing or a railway crossing, as I go to pull away, it has to restart. Usually gets a toot from behind.

Re: Side mirrors too small

Maybe they have had warranty issues with them. so it's easier to just de-activate and not have the complaints.

Re: Electric wing mirrors

My Xcellence Lux is a few months newer and I have noticed that, in the last 2 months, when leaving the car and pressing and holding the lock button on the fob, it does not work first time. Repeat 2 seconds later and it works. This has happened every time in the last 2 months (also coincides with a v...

Re: Disable trip meter and navigation mini map missing

On the last point, the cruise lever has to be clicked right back, away from the driver, to the full, off, position, not just the centre 'not currently using cruise' position. Mine has three positions... Towards the driver - Resume cruise. Centre position - Cruise ready if activated. Away from driver...
