Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

Hi all, Sorry to read that you are all still having the same issues. I bought my T-Roc back June last year and returned it in July. I’m pretty certain that VW can’t easily fix this. During my arguments with VW I did some extensive investigation around the engine itself. This engine was designed afte...

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

Hi,

I gave up in the end and returned the car to VW for a full refund. They weren’t happy, tough!

Good luck.

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

You need to read up on your consumer rights. If I recall correctly, in the first month of ownership you have the right to reject the car with a full refund and at no cost to you. After the first month you still have the same rejection right, but now you have to give the dealer/manufacturer the chanc...

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

Hi, The 1.5 TSi uses a miller cycle motor, the engine was designed to provide the economy and torque of a Diesel engine from a petrol engine. Simply put, on the combustion stroke, the inlet valve is opened to increase capacity, but opening the inlet value would cause loss of compression and car woul...

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

Hi,

The car does have traction control and I’m 100% certain that TC is not causing the kangarooing issue. TC will only intervene if the wheels loose traction, which is not the case in this instance.

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

I'd be very interested to see what they say about the software update. My understanding of the problem is that a solution is beyond a simple software fix and more mechanical. The 1.5 TSI uses a miller cycle engine, which basically means the inlet valves are opened on the combustion stroke. Mechanica...

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

Based on the feedback here, it does seem to impact some cars more than others, mine was awful. According to my dealer, the factory have acknowledged there is a known problem and are working on a solution. How long that will take is anybody's guess. BTW, I got ride of the T-Roc, it was only 3 weeks o...
