Re: Crash test

On the front impact it’s a bit worrisome that the centre consol in the roof fell out.
The roof wasn’t damaged really and that should not come loose.
It could catch you in the eye or face.

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

I'm still waiting for my rejection to be finalised, but I'm getting there slowly but surely. I was offered an alternative Roc, but as I don't want a diesel and the 1.0 didn't feel spritely enough I had to say no, and the other half ruled out a T-Cross so we'll have to look elsewhere. Tonight I expe...

Re: Faulty Automatic Emergency Breaking

Following this thread got me wondering... If the following vehicle was fitted with a dash-cam the police (and the insurance company) would certainly tend to favour the evidence of the device. Having said that, does anybody know whether such “emergency events” are recorded by the vehicle and can be ...

Re: Faulty Automatic Emergency Breaking

This sounds like a problem with the front assist sensors, ie radar or camera. The dealer may have just examined the car's fault logs and done a test drive, so if they haven't actually inspected the sensors and done an alignment/calibration check I'd insist they do that as this is a sefety issue. Of...

Re: Faulty Automatic Emergency Breaking

Hi there guys, Just wondering if anyone else has experienced problems with the emergency breaking in their Troc? Have an R Line Troc 68 plate which slams on in random places with no surrounding obstructions. Happens on a clear motorway, dual carriageways, country roads - pretty much anywhere and is...

Re: Stop/Start feature..

I thought it was April 1st when a news item on BBC West Midlands tonight ran a story that a proposal is being made to fine drivers £20 for having their engine running for 1 minute or more when stationary. They stated that members of the public could report drivers with video evidence and benefit wi...

Re: Stop/Start feature..

To try to bring this back to the original dicussion, I can confirm that my engine stops when I stop behind another car and then it restarts if the car in front moves off or just moves forward a bit and stops again. However, when that happens I can usually stop my engine again (without moving forwar...
