I am one of the first four posts in this topic (albeit under a different name)
What I see is that the topic has gone from a need to establish what is happening with our cars to the need for people who don’t even own a T-ROC to spout off what we should think or do.
If you don’t own a T-ROC please go else where in this forum and put your point.
I have been criticised in the past for saying that everything has been highlighted in the past but the latest fuel octain issue was brought up eons ago. My VW technician suggested this to me 10 months ago.
I have lived with this problem for over a year and it has resulted in my wife refusing to drive the car.
When I suggested that my cars symptoms had subdued significantly after 12 months I was more or less called a liar.
I was only trying to give others hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
This topic in my opinion should be paused till someone or some body comes up with the divinitive answer to our problem.
.As I suggested a while back this topic went from April to December with the use of 15 pages, look where we are now.
Just because you dont own one of the Kangaroos doesn't mean to say you are to be banned from a Forum information is important to those wishing to make up your mind so Forum Police not interested, car rejected new information awaited. If You Pause on all information you may have along wait, with warranty over good luck my advise Reject it if you can.

Apologies if anyone thinks I am going too far OFF TOPIC but I still think that as I have never experienced kangarooing having always used 'super unleaded' 97/98 RON fuel since car purchased, then there may well be some truth in my theory!. :roll:
Fair enough JAMCT. My reply should have been more succinct: I've used super unleaded since purchase and my car has kangarooed since purchase.

I'm in the same boat as you more or less.

As for pausing the topic: the responsibility for finding a definitive answer to our problem lies with VW. Past experience shows that only when a topic is aired in public do they (a) admit it and (b) do something about it.
Spot on T Roo VW can they be trusted think not omissions is a good one! the best thing VW hope for if they cant fix it is all goes quiet, sorry that's there plan, convinced if as some have said its a issue between engine torque and Clutch, that's not a software fix as they have tried that. Still watching and waiting after a rejection, but in a couple months will have to look for different car one thinks.

The point I was trying to make was that someone with 175 posts on this issue on the back of a 30 minute road test is only clouding the problem.
I would have thought that someone with so much to say about VW would have given it best and moved on to another make.
Obviousely the more that is said the more it will be looked into. This has already been achieved as VW now acknowledge the problem so there is no need to constantly go over the same ground.

Sorry Judge and leading expert of Forums and points of view, you assume to much how do you know it was a 30 minute test drive does that argument suit your cause, dont cloud the issue this is T Roc forum, My investigation centered around official information from VW HQ dealers and other VW Brand Names if you dont like the varied information and the truth, dont read it and leave it to others who are interested . Personally when I looked into the Forum original, I read every single post and that saved me from a possible terrible mistake. So dont tell what I can and can not say on the Forum. I had not intended to post another Forum comment until the Q2 had been delivered to my relative but hey Ho if it winds you up its worth it.

Am I the slightested bit bothered by your comments no if it saves one person frpm buying a Kangaroo.

Should have added, Thank goodness the Roo is saved VW " acknowledge the problem " so all is well , wrong its the fix or lack of it that's the problem every one knows there's a problem. They cant defend the indefeasible. Good Luck.

Hi SIMMO,
Do you ever give your posts a quick once over before you submit them?
I really struggle to make sense of what you are trying to say sometimes.
Who exactly are the “indefeasible” and what are VW trying to defend them from?

But the kangaroo is now reaching its first birthday. Perhaps VW will buy all sufferers a cake? Better still, could they spare us their magnanimity in 'acknowledging the problem' and get on with fixing it? We know they are gifted fixers after all.

Well sadly I didn’t see this forum before ordering and recently receiving my kangarooing T-Roc, Gutted!! We are expecting a response from our dealer tomorrow but the likelihood of them guaranteeing a resolution is slim. If however I do find anything out I’ll let everyone know on here ASAP. I’m expecting to reject at this rate and have to say I’m gutted as I genuinely love the car and spec however it’s just not acceptable the near misses etc we are experiencing.

Couple of quick questions if peeps don’t mind,

1) would the diesel as an alternative be a good choice? The 1.6 seems underpowered to me.
2) is the 2 ltr diesel non 4 wheel drive available yet?
3) is there as much activity on this topic in other forums, Audi, Skoda etc etc? There must be thousands of 1.5’s out there with this issue, how can it only seem to affect some
4) would a petition whereby people can gather in numbers to force VW into some sort of urgent action be a good idea?
5) have people experienced a slight degree of vibration when pressing the clutch fully in, as they come to a halt? Might be just me but it does not feel smooth, I do accept I come from driving a diesel where this type of very slight feedback is likely masked, however clicking as I reverse off the drive has occurred a few times
