Re: Mpg 1.2 Dig T

Mine just reached 10000 miles. Did a 115 mile journey yesterday with varying speeds and achieved 49.4 mpg so not bad for a CVT. I have added a tiny bit oil in the 18 months but I think the Dealer doesn't fill right up to the max line when it was serviced.

Re: Driving

Many town roads are just obstacle courses nowadays. The standard of driving isn't very good from a lot of people who are in such a hurry. I often see someone doing 40 mph and still accelerating when in a 30 zone when the traffic lights ahead have just turned to red. It just doesn't make any sense to...

Re: Update on the attempted theft of my QQ

I installed a CCTV camera to watch over the rear of my house and drive. It even activated when the dash cam fell off the screen mounting and that set off the car alarm which was recorded by the CCTV.

Yes, I get the beeps now and again especially if someone turns left and brakes while doing so.

Re: Turning the lights off when indicating right..

I couldn't understand this problem so had a look at it this morning. I use the middle finger of the left hand whilst keeping my hand on the steering wheel so have never switched the lights off. However if I grabbed the indicator with the thumb and forefinger with the hand off the steering wheel then...

Re: red management light, now smoking

Back in the days when cars were so much simpler I had clouds of white smoke out the back of my Triumph Spitfire and it was the head gasket had blown. So easy to diagnose and fix back then.

Re: Keep or Change ??

Approaching 10000 miles on ours and it is 18 months old. No problems apart from 3 activation's of the auto braking system for no reason. Lovely to drive, looks great and good mpg. But I am uncomfortable with it having the problematic 1.2 petrol engine and the CVT as the mileage increases. The 1.3 DC...
