Re: 10mph door locking help

I thought the door lock disabled under certain conditions in an accident ?
But must admit I cant find any reference to this now !!!

Re: Folding mirrors on T-Cross?

Folding mirrors is an option, they fold in when you lock the car.

Re: Roof box

re Towbar. Didnt think there was a factory fit option for towbar ?
Mine, removable, got fitted by dealer after delivery in December , took them a whole day mainly due to care needed to remove and refit internal panels.

Re: Engine cutting out at low speed

A bit late to this thread, I have the STop/Start switched on, when I have stalled the car ( my own fault trying to start in 3rd) I was surprised that the car did not automatically restart on depressing the clutch .

Can anyone clarify this ?

Re: VW DETACHABLE TOWBAR (out of stock)

When I took delivery of my T-Cross in December I had to wait for the detachable towbar to come back in stock at VW for several weeks. You could consider the fixed towbar . My understanding is that no dealer actually carries these types of items in stock but orders them from VW when required. It take...

Re: AIR CON

On my Mk4 Golf with Climate Control, I could see no significant difference in mpg on my standard 30 min commute - mixed roads - with it on or disabled.
Of course its never that hot up here in the North !

Re: Turn off lane assist

On most country roads without any white lines it does not seem to activate.
But when it does especially on narrow rougher roads it is a pain and quite scary at first.
