Loving my new arona - I personally think it's the best car I've ever had! But I've had a couple of problems that I'm hoping some of you guys might be able to help with?

The first of these is the tiredness monitor. After reading the manual it says their is an option for this in the settings to turn it on and off, but I don't seem to have that option? So not sure how to know if it's working or not!

The second thing which is perhaps more annoying is that turning the wheel any more than 180 degrees in either direction at low speed generates a sort of friction/rubbing noise from the front wheels? As my car is only 3 weeks old and has been doing it since I've had it I'm wondering if it's normal?

Hope you guys can help me out here.

Cheers &#x1f44d-1f3fb;

I think the Tiredness monitor is called driver alert system in the car/settings/driver assistance menu. Mine has always had the active ticked, but in a years ownership has never come on, so I ,also, don't know whether it works!

I haven't noticed the rubbing noise when on lock.

I had the rubbing noise on hard left lock as well, but have not had the need to use full lock subsequently, so not had a chance to investigate it further. In my youth, when I had a Mini, I would have said it was the front wheel drive bearings (sorry, I am sure there is a more precise term) but it seems unlikely in a new vehicle. Hopefully others will give an answer.
I've also had the tiredness monitor come on a few times, especially once I've been driving for over a couple of hours. No real reason for it as far as I can see. As a way to pass time on the journey, I now see if I can provoke the warning light to come on, by a little lane drifting, sloppy braking etc. (Only when totally safe to do so Officer!)
