Re: Motorway fuel consumption getting better

Out of interest how many miles to a tank roughly on a plug in ? How long is a piece of string? My last two journeys were in town and the engine never started up. The figures on the cars instruments are almost meaningless because fuel consumption is entirely dependent on speed, length of journey, am...

Re: Steering Wheel Vibration

One of the problems with balancing wheels perfectly when new tyres have been fitted is that if the tyres have been stored in some kind of stacking arrangement they will be slightly out of shape. After a few heat cycles the carcass is forced into its final shape by heat and centrifugal force and air ...

Re: Steering Wheel Vibration

Yes mine shakes at that speed too. It always used to be true that out of balance front wheels would be noticeable at 40 to 45 and rear wheels at 60 to 65. Mine isn't bad enough to be worth taking any action but I might swop the wheels over after twelve months then wheel know ( sorry!).

Re: Why does my new Tucson forget settings?

I’ve only had my Tucson for a day now but mine never seems to remember any settings. I spent some time last night editing the driver profile and making some changes to some settings. Today it’s back to ‘Driver 1’ and all the settings reset. My air con doesn’t just go back to 22 degrees, it defaults...

Re: New Car Turnaround Time

...and don't forget procuring and fitting the number plates. The dealer fitted my front number plate too low and it interfered with the radar. There is a warning about this in the manual but of course no one reads those warnings, especially not the dealers! Another half day wasted returning a brand ...

Thirdly, it isn't a 'strong' tug
I beg to differ on both of those points.
So do I!

Re: Hello, new owner checking in

Just to repeat what I have pointed out before the North American spec. cars do allow this function to be switched off by default. I would strongly argue that the last thing it is is a safety feature.

Re: Broken USB port

Unfortunately they do break occasionally and its a fundamentally poor USB socket design because it is hard to see which way around the device should be inserted. USB C overcomes this because it doesn't matter which way you plug it in. I do agree that it should be fixed under warranty or at least as ...

Re: Old school question!

If you are looking for an easy way of converting your CD material I can recommend the free foobar2000 software for windows. After you have opened the CD as a playlist you can populate the track information ("tagging") from a standard internet source, it doesn't recognise them all but its p...

Re: Tyre Pressure

Every car has a plate with recommended tyre pressures. Dealers usually can't be bothered to check them on PDI so they are often at very high pressures used to seat the tyre when first assembled or shipped. If you want to save a bit of fuel there is no harm in going a couple of PSI above the lower re...
