Hi I have a t roc R which is a year old , I’ve been experiencing some strange problems with the steering on certain occasions .....when travelling on dual carriageway or motorways , if I change lane , or go round a slight bend , the steering acts as if it’s caught in a slight road surface rut , then suddenly gets free of it , I have two new tyres to the front , but this happened with the other tyres ...the problem is only intermittent, but certainly gives me cause for concern .

This sounds like 'Lane Assist' and I hate it and have turned it off permanently but I believe newer cars require it to be turned off every time you start. Also there are different settings which may help you but I'll let those who use it comment further.

I'm sure you're aware you can but you have to turn it off everytime you start the car.
Push the button on the end of your indicator stalk, (if you have one) then toggle off with the steering wheel up/down buttons on the right hand side & select OK.
If you don't have the stalk button, use the buttons on the right of the steering wheel but you'll have to navigate through the menu.
I can't remember the sequence, just play around 🤣🤷‍♂️

Depends on how old your car is?
It's on by default now but I'm not exactly sure what model year this was introduced 🤔
Some love it some don't.

Can be turned off permanently with obdeleven.

I haven’t managed to kill off mine and if I forget to do the three step trick it ‘assists’ me on the single track roads around here. The Opel corsa I hired recently had more tech than the vw you could turn it off too (it was in the eu and new) Half the price of the troc

Left steering switch pack, bottom right (looks like car with force field round it) this brings up assistance menu.
Right steering pack, OK, the middle button.

Steering assist is the top item, this turns it off, then leave alone and the screen reverts after about a minute.

Not sure what the differences were in the buttons in the past but some were different 🤷‍♂️

Sorry for the confusion guys 🙈

I'm guessing the lower switch pack was before lane keeping was included. The upper picture is when lane keeping is installed.

Probably, and the 'Mode' switch was used to select ACC speed control or speed limit.

Mine has the mode button & yes it toggles between ACC & speed limiter selection.
I also have lane assist/guidance 👌

Funnily enough I have a software bug whereby it gets confused when toggling between ACC & speed limiter and goes into fault & neither can be used.
Resets itself on the next start up.

I basically have to turn whatever I'm using off before I toggle 👌

I guess they decided more people would want quick access to front assist so as to turn lane guidance off and fewer people swiching between ACC and speed limiter. Says it all.

No buttons on any stalks apart from the rain sensor sensitivity 'wheel' for the wipers. I feel I'm missing something :ROFLMAO:

Yeah I’m a little confused too. I thought the button on the stalk was a feature added to newer T-Rocs but then how does VB have it if he got his car before me and Impala who don’t have it 🤔
