Biggest Arona Niggle

I’ve had my arona just over 4 weeks now and I’m curious as to what your biggest niggle with the car is. I’m not talking about the lack of a rear passenger light but something really minor that annoys you.

Mine would have to be the amount of water the wing mirrors hold after washing it. I’ve dried the car, gone around and put everything away, dry around the mirrors again and again, even blown the excess water out but without fail I’ll go back to the car an hour later and I’ll have a streak of dried water either side ruining my freshly cleaned car.

So what’s yours?

:lol: Love it. Get a ceramic coating applied. won't happen then, will just blob off :)

Mine is probably that the boot is 1cm too short in width for our buggy too slide in without rubbing the interior leaving a mark that I HAVE to wipe clean every time. Yeah, I know... get a smaller buggy! :D

Reading the above comments, if that's all that can be found then the Arona is a pretty good car.

It's the major niggles that annoy me, with wind noise from the wing mirrors being the biggest culprit. I have no minor niggles!

My wing mirrors aren't noisy at any speed?

I think I’ll give the car a wax soon so hopefully the water will just bead off.

Ive not noticed any wind noise either, strange. Perhaps I’ve got the stereo too loud to notice.

Mine is the fact that I could not have climate control with my SE Technology! :|

That’s a good point, as easy as the EZ system is to understand I would have liked to have been able to add options like the beats stereo, winter pack and the red brake calliper pack.

For me the Sat Nav, takes you off the the route for no apparent reason and straight back on same spot where it had taken you after it immediately tells you to go left and if you allow it to it normally takes you right right and right or left left and left and then taking you back to the spot it had just taken you off or a mile back down the road to join same route. Also takes you up and over a motorway junction roundabout and back in the same Road and direction you were travelling. Has done that for 4 or 5 roundabouts. Although the red line set out n the screen for your route never changes.
Also the maps have a lot of mistakes such as bends in the road it tells you to turn left or right instead of bare left or bare right or saying nothing so you can just carrying on travelling on the road ahead.
It has been looked out by two different dealers and all settings and GPS settings have been checked but no fix found yet.

I don't notice any wind noise from door mirrors but I do get noise I would describe as more 'road noise' or tyre noise coming from the base of the rear passenger doors.

Yes I do get water sitting in both mirrors and in the rear door and number plate which appears 10 mins after wiping dry with a microfiber cloth.... but I've never had a car that didn't have that problem with to be fair :-)

The Front Assist can be irritating when activating itself on tight bends or lanes which has poles or markers along side or a raised kerb or Chicane. Also kicks in when approaching a junction a little too fast when a car is waiting to turn.
I say to myself it's a safety feature and will hopefully save me one day.
I suppose these sensors are the future with all this autonomous driving they are planning
