Re: Steering too light on 1.0L models?

I only use Lane Assist occasionally, and yes it makes the steering feel wierd. When I test drove an Ateca on 19” wheels I thought the steering was awful and blamed it on the wheels. I now realise that it had Lane Assist switched on. I’m just saying that the difference in steering feel in Sport mode ...

Re: Steering too light on 1.0L models?

I have the drive mode options and frankly I cannot notice any usefull difference between the modes as far as the steering is concerned.

Re: Steering too light on 1.0L models?

There is no reason why there should be any difference. The fact that you noticed a difference could be down to wheel size or even tyre pressures.

Re: Chrome Trim Tarnish

So why don’t you just wash it with a decent shampoo? I use Meguires and have no problems.

Re: 2.0 190 hp petrol or diesel?

I had a diesel Leon for 12 years and changed to a petrol version. The difference was amazing. Totally quiet at start up and when running. The Ateca is even quieter. When the S/S kicks in the only way I know it has done so is by looking at the Rev counter. There is no way I would ever buy a diesel ag...

Re: Auto handbrake sticking

I have had no issues, but then I never use autohold and only ever apply the hand brake manually. To be fair, that's all you need to do on a DSG.

It depends on whether you want a car that sounds like a lorry or not.

Re: Eco mode

It only does that with DSG. I have tried using Eco mode and the affect on consumption was neglible and made the car awful to drive. If you enjoy driving it in Eco mode you have bought the wrong car.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control

Very easy to use and after getting used to it doing all the braking, I have great confidence in it. With DSG it's amazing in traffic.
