Personally I wouldn...

Re: 1.5 Xcellence Queries

£400 - jeez. Typical car salesman - knows nothing about the product he's selling but apparently he's an authority on cleaning products. You do realise this is one of the salesfolks biggest profit margins? As for how well it protects the interior, I'll repeat the story I always tell whenever asked is...

Re: Car has arrived with the wrong engine and no rear camera - wasn't expecting that!

Thanks for the responses guys. The dealer has offer to drop the price by £1k if I take the car 'as is' or by £500 if they fit the missing reversing camera. As for the query from Dennis regarding engines, I drove both the 1.4 (Ateca) and 1.5 (Karoq) TSI engines prior to ordering and whilst I acknowl...

Re: Rain- sensing automatic wipers

Not sure about you guys but on my car INT is INT, has nothing to do with autowipers. Autowipers are activated through CAR/SETUP on the infotainment system. I believe it's under mirror and wipers and you need to check the box. Once activated, it works regardless of the stalk position. Regardless of ...

Re: Seat Ateca FR Sport 1.5 TSI

Thanks for the reply, its very helpful. What is the main factor in wheels / tyres for combating snow? Is it the sidewall depth or is it something else about the tyre? Basically do low profile tyres mean that it WILL be bad in snow? Sorry, I'm a bit of a car newbie. It's not so much the sidewall tha...

Re: Impressed so far with 4Drive on summer tyres

My commute involves country roads which have been pretty icey recently. The 4Drive has been very good with zero wheel spin when driving off and lots of traction when accelerating. And this is on summer tyres. I just left it in normal mode. That's a pretty crazy thing to say especially at this time ...

Re: Rain- sensing automatic wipers

Lever on top of stalk set to most sensitive and stalk up to first position. There well may be a fault, but it's often the case (and this goes for every car I've had with auto-wipe) that if the lever is left in the INT or Auto position with the engine off, then when the engine starts, the rain senso...

Re: 1.5tsi or 2.0tsi

If you enjoyed your Cupra so much and you're sad to see it go then thought the obvious answer would be to replace it with a Cupra Ateca.

Re: Using a phone or mp3 player to play music/as a sat nav

Jeez, talk about politicians not giving straight answers! The AA told Newsbeat if you are using your phone while it is secured in a cradle it may be slightly different. Slightly? It's totally different. Cars like VW up and SEAT Mii were sold with cradles for that very purpose. It's no different usin...
