Re: Rear Drum brakes on SEL ?

The SEL is available with the 95PS version of the 1 litre engine. Therefore that is probably what you saw at your local dealership. You need to have the 115PS version to ensure you get discs front and rear.

Re: Car Net in SEL model

Nugget and greycross, I agree with you that lane assist is a bit obtrusive. Have you tried it with just the ‘vibration’ switched off? (Vibration can be switched off permanently). I persevere with lane assist as it is meant to be a good safety feature but my wife has to have it switched off when driv...

Re: I still haven’t found what I’m looking for !

I met a fellow T-Cross owner (White SE) at the local skip. We swapped thoughts on the car and he said the lane assist was bothering him. I showed him how to switch off the steering wheel vibration permanently and the lane assist itself. Lane assist is the one thing that slightly bothers me - in fact...

Re: USB CABLE

As greycross says the data plug is useful to a point but I have stopped using it as if seemed to be draining my phone battery too much.

Re: USB CABLE

My SEL was supplied with a good quality USB cable for my iPhone. My dealer asked me which phone I had and it was in the car at handover.

Re: Mileage display on dash

Hi jdb
Could you post a picture of your analogue display so we can get an idea of what the issue is?
Hopefully then someone can help.

Re: One Month in..

Hi Greycross. I agree with most of your observations. Everyone on here seemed very happy with their new cars! I would disagree with 13 on your list mind you. I find the split level quite useful! I didn’t fancy the keyless option due to security concerns but wouldn’t have expected the stop-start issu...

Re: Tech info for gearheads

Very impressive Gavin! I was relieved to see that your neat calculations more or less confirm my direct observations. The longer I own this car the more impressed I am. It is the perfect size for my wife and myself. It has just enough oomph if you floor the throttle to get you past. The gearbox/engi...

Re: Tech info for gearheads

Hi gavinvanpopering and welcome! I am really glad you asked that because I have been meaning to post this info because it is very interesting. Amazingly the gearbox ratios are very evenly spaced for the 6 speed manual on the T-Cross. At 2000rpm in 1st gear the speed is 10mph, in 2nd gear speed is 20...

Re: Active Cylinder Technology (ACT)

Hi YO62TCross and welcome. I also had a TDi 150 PS manual car, a Golf in fact. The only thing I miss from the Golf is the surge of power available when you put your foot down! I am very happy with my T-Cross. I find the 115 PS manual very refined and economical and overall I don’t regret moving from...
