Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

My TRoc has just had its first service and it’s second software update, the first worked fine, the second has just refined things. A number of questions dragonroc, 1. As you don’t appear to have a signature, what model of T-Roc have you got? SE, SEL, R-Line, manual or DSG? 2. When did you purchase ...

Re: Keyless Entry exploit?

Latest news on keyless entry and security... In an attempt to make the system more secure the latest fobs have an inbuilt motion detector. If, after a predetermined time, the fob doesn’t detect motion it switches off the fob’s transmitter. Therefore these “scanners” are unable to detect your fobs si...

Re: Which type of tires are best for t-roc ?

Asking people on a forum leaves it open for very subjective opinions. For recommendations I suggest you check out the motoring press: Autocar or Auto Express, in fact you’ll find they’ve all done winter tyres comparisons. Autocar does a very good test of all the main tyres under real conditions. Whe...

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 p...

Re: New model 2020 T-Roc Black Style

Don’t feel guilty T Roo - everybody to their own tastes... The world would be a dull place if we all liked the same! Besides, any “clean” one (no matter what the colour) would be better than one plagued with the roo and moo! It’s just that both my wife and I really hated the interior of the R-Line (...

Re: New model 2020 T-Roc Black Style

So they’ve replaced virtually all of the chrome trim for black... The interior is as dark as the hobs of hell... The T-Roc Goth. No, not to my liking.

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

Well surprise, surprise. Car into the dealership this morning, went out with a technician and it didn’t play up. I’ve left it there until Tuesday for them to keep testing. I got him to drive it first which probably wasn’t wise as he was fairly heavy footed and that makes it less likely to happen. T...
