The lane assist is annoying at times. It is not just about indicating. It also thinks I’m not steering at times and sounds an alarm.
Sales person turned off all safety features during test drives so as not to confuse me! so did not get to experience lane assist.

Rarrar, I have to say the Turquoise colour is growing on me, the car I test drove in this colour was lovely to look at. Good spec, not sure on high beam asset, be interested how you get on with it. Personally would have added heated seats, like you coming from a Yeti and this is one item don't what to loose, also a shame T-Cross does not come with a heated windscreen.

I also need a tow bar are you having this fitted by the dealer and do you have to own the car first before this can be fitted, as others have commented on in the forum.

Hi, thanks for the reply, yes have been offered the £1000 and 2yrs free and it would be on pcp.

I sat in a first edition but although nice beyond my budget. So an se with chosen options suits the needs.
Just the last bit of deciding over the gearbox really. And the sounds.

Personally i think they should support cd a bit longer. Im 51 and have no music on my phone but a 22yr old with a phone full of music isnt going to be the target market for a new car imo. If i dont option the beats for the cd player then im facing buying all my music again or spending hours transfering to sd or memory stick.

To give me some idea with the apple play / iphone ( i have) how does the sound quality compare against cd playback?
Careful with your age stereotypes ;) I'm 57 and haven't used anything other than my phone for music in about 10 years :lol: :lol: :lol:

I transferred my IPhone play list to SD card, via my Mac, for the glove box player. All works well.
I’m really pleased with my SEL, I did 300 miles motorway driving last weekend and got 51mpg. Only annoyance is an intermittent squeak from the plastic dash trim, to be sorted.
However, I’ve also got a brilliant 18 year old Beetle and when I get into that I can tell that the build quality of the newer car is not as solid. It has a couple of standard features that would be nice on the newer car, such as being able to open the boot and petroleum cap from the drivers seat.
I’ve got used to the lane assistance, but still don’t understand why the take control of the steering wheel info pops up. Especially when driving at constant speed on straight roads.

Not had any squeaks up front yet but i guess stuff does settle in. Im getting 35ish around town and 47 on a quiet early morning drive to work.... cant seem to get a regular 40+ but also not sure which mpg meter is best to use? Resets every trip but id rather have a tank to tank mpg reading

I live in Spain, mobile signal is a little too patchy to trust streaming ;)

And thank you for the hello, I'm currently trying to decide which options I want for my eventual R Line purchase.
