Re: 1.4 & 1.5 DSG in traffic

In situations like that I turn the auto stop off. That should eliminate any stress on the gearbox.

Re: Paint scratch repair

I’ve used my local Chipsaway franchisee a couple of times and they’ve done a first class job but even they might need to do a whole door respray. Worth getting a quote though. If you’ve got a protected no claim bonus it might be cheaper to claim and pay the excess.

Re: Fuel Gauge issue?

Re: Driving Mode

On mine only Eco mode remains selected. The others (snow, off road, sport and driver selected) all revert to D on re-start.

Re: 4x4 Snow performance - your views

I was quoted £180 each for snow tyres for my Ateca.. when I think back to this winter and the number of days they would have been useful then there is no way the best part of £800 would have been worth it, ' You can get snow tyres cheaper than that - or buy them during the summer! But at £800 for o...
