Infotainment screen location.

One of the reasons for choosing the T Cross was having the screen nicely located within the dashboard. I just don't fancy cars with what, in my opinion, have what looks like an ipad superglued to the top of the dashboard.
Might be interesting to hear other people's opinions 🤔

Re: DSG Is it a dry clutch or wet?

Hi Halin9, The gearbox in a T Cross is the DQ 200 which is a dry clutch unit and is used in all transverse engine applications. The control unit is housed in a separate oil filled section away from the clutch packs. There was a major recall of this gearbox for VW cars made prior to 2015. Subsequent...

Re: DSG Is it a dry clutch or wet?

Thanks for the info. Yes, I couldn't seem to find a definitive answer. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis so need an auto, not had a DSG one before but OK with it so far, though prefer it in Sport mode. I believe it needs an expensive oil change after 4 years.

DSG Is it a dry clutch or wet?

Does anyone know whether T Cross DSG is a wet or dry clutch. I had heard there were issues with a dry clutch 🤔

Re: Snow socks

They are designed to get you off your driveway, or where you get stuck, but must be removed immediately you hit tarmac. Handy as a back up if you get stuck, but will tear on tarmac. When I worked for British Gas some time ago we carried a sprung bar clamp which opened to put 4 metal bars across the ...

Re: Disable start-stop.

Under lock down I don't remember my stop/start activating other than once on a longer run for a hospital appointment.

Re: Stick...... Or Twist?

Yes, very happy with the car, and with such little use and low mileage due to the lock downs will likely see out the 4 yrs of payments. Unless, of course, I get an offer too good to refuse. By then probably getting close to a face lift model being due.

Stick...... Or Twist?

When I purchased my T Cross on PCP my options were to change the car after 1,2,3 or 4 yrs or make the final payment and keep it. Obviously, with the pandemic, the mileage is so low (virtually the same as getting a pre reg car) it seems a no brainer to stick with it. With the model now coming up to 2...
