Driving Mode

Post by Stringbeanjean » Wed May 30, 2018 8:01 pm

Every time I return to my Ateca it reverts to “D” (normal) mode even if the selector has been left in, and still displays, “E” or “S”. Anyone else finding this? Feels like a software issue.

^ There is lot of discussion about this in the forums. Engine and gearbox loose the mode setting when powered off, other bits and pieces don't. That's the case with the newer cars, older ones (like mine) retain the mode perfectly.

Thanks tet70, I’ve read the other posts now. Still feels like a software update waiting to happen to me.

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

Mine does that too and it's so frustrating. I checked the manual and it actually states exactly that, that it won't retain the driving mode. Probably my only bugbear since owning the car, definitely feels like a glitch to me.

My 2015 Leon was the same so I think Vag cars are just designed this way and have been for some years now.

Maybe its a DSG thing. I have a manual gearbox and mine comes on to what ever it was on when i turned it off. Mine is only 2 months old.

Not sure what you mean? I have normal, eco, sport and individual modes. Whatever mode mine is set to when i turn the car off ,stays on that setting when i turn it back on.
