Re: USB Mobile phone charger.

So no use of cigarette power point then IWRA? Does your mobile charge at normal rate then direct from fascia USB point? I never received a VW cable from dealer. Assume you still had to buy a cable to connect with VW cable to suit your particular phone? Any ID for VW cable to purchase independently a...

USB Mobile phone charger.

Can anyone recommend a short USB cable to charge a Huawei Mate 20 pro phone direct from my T Cross USB slot on fascia? Also, has anyone any experience of charging their mobile this way. Reading more about this it would appear to make more sense to use rear USB sockets as front USB power not strong e...

Re: FIRST SERVICE

Thanks for comments. So what have other T Cross users been charged for their first service? The best I can find -- from an independent VW garage is £150 inc VAT which still sounds a lot to me for basically an oil change and filter or am I out of touch with latest charges? Also, what other checks if ...

FIRST SERVICE

My T Cross is due its first service next month as one year old. I spoke to my VW dealer thinking that a 2 yr service plan would be cheapest but it has worked out cheaper paying for first service and then taking out a plan for second and subsequent services. I gulped when he said £176 for first servi...

Re: lumbar support

I think this has been covered before but my only complaint about the T Cross is the uncomfortable seat which put pressure under my thighs making driving very uncomfortable after 10 minutes or so. I tried the seat in various positions to no avail so landed up trying out several seat cushions to raise...

Re: Thoughts on the T-Cross?

Last September I was poised to buy a Suzuki Vitara SZ5 but there was a halt in production for some reason. It had everything I wanted on it including 4 wheel drive and I test drove a used model with 18k miles on the clock. I had been reading all about the T Cross and had a chance to drive an ex demo...

AIR CON

Not fully T CROSS related but perhaps valid nevertheless. I found this question/answer in Honest John column this morning interesting, QUESTION: Can a car sitting around stationary cause the air con to break? ANSWER: Most air conditioning problems in cars are caused by lack of use, usually because t...
