Re: T-Cross Manuals

My T-Cross came with a manual which is generally very good. One slight annoyance I noticed is there is no technical data included - it states that it went to print before this info was available.

Re: How are T-Cross Owners Finding the 1.0L Engine ?

I’ve just had the car since Monday and over 2 short trips on country roads my main impression is how comfortable it is to drive. Seats/steering wheel are easy to adjust to a comfortable set-up. I am finding the lane assist feature a wee bit harder to get used to especially when the steering wheel vi...

Re: T-Cross gets 5 stars in Euro NCAP tests.

The video link below shows a bit more detail of the safety features and crash test. Love the ’dummies’ walking and cycling in front of the T-Cross! Glad to say they all survived.

Re: Considering options

You’re right a spin round the block is not enough! I find it is not so much the length of the test drive as the opportunity to put the car/gearbox through its paces although I would want a minimum of 20 minutes. Sitting for 20 mins in traffic mind you is not much good. Better 20 mins on mixed roads:...

Re: Ordered my T-Cross SEL today!

In answer to katydaly: yes we went for the full Supagard treatment. Got a good discount on it and it will help me clean the Black Paint more easily I’m sure. The dealer had to order a spare wheel for me as it was not on the configurator when I ordered. He also ‘threw in’ Gap Insurance as part of the...

Re: Ordered my T-Cross SEL today!

My SEL arrived at the dealer yesterday. Was invited in to have a good look at it and check that extras ordered are all in place. That makes it 12 weeks exactly from order to arriving at the dealer. Looks like recent orders may not be so lucky. Manager said he can’t get enough of them - interest in t...

T-Cross gets 5 stars in Euro NCAP tests.

See article below: https://www.volkswagen-newsroom.com/en/press-releases/new-t-cross-scores-five-stars-in-euro-ncap-5022 Very impressive details in the article. I think the addition of safety systems as standard on the T-Cross has really helped - Lane Keeping, Blind Spot Monitoring etc. I believe th...

Re: Order

Hi Valley Parade - welcome! Sorry to hear you are having a bit of trouble with the progress of your order. I was a bit more fortunate, maybe because I ordered very soon after ordering opened. You seem to be finding your dealer not so helpful. In that case you could try e-mailing VW Customer Care. Th...

Re: Ordering process

I don’t think there are too many T-Cross cars around at dealerships to buy though it might be worth phoning around to ask. Making a factory order lets you get the spec of car you want. I ordered my T-Cross exactly 11 weeks ago and it arrived at the port of Tyne 1 week ago. My dealer expects to get i...
