Re: Advisory on first MOT!

I agree, three years is no guarantee of something not being worn. Plus, this is an advisory, not a failure! My considerable experience of MoT stations and advisories is that it is all very much down to the tester's knowledge and interpretation. For example, I have had advisories on cars one year, an...

Re: Buying a 2018 car ... is the 2.4 worth the extra

Just to add a slightly contrary view. I have a 2014 and did a side-by-side test drive. It is certainly improved but they are all marginal incremental improvements. On the other hand, from myself who has never driven a pre-2019 model, and was greeted by 'shock / horror' comments when colleagues foun...

Re: Is this the next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV?

Quite Volvo XC90 like..

Not sure I like it, too bold, but it will grow on me and by the time it's actually available it'll have toned down a bit I suspect.

Re: Potential New Owner Questions

If you are trying to minimise the cost of ownership, or even cost per mile, I’m sure there are much cheaper solutions than a PHEV but I’m not sure how BIK would skew the calculations as it did not apply to me. Quite a lot! As an example my previous car was a Volvo V70 D4 SE Lux, and I save over £20...

Re: What should I do on a motorway for max MPG

although I think that any heat recovered from the ICE could be considered as ‘free’ (no additional cost). In the Outlander with the electric heater (e.g. my 2019 4HS) is the heat *always* generated by the electric heater or does it come from the coolant when (and only when) the ICE is running ? i.e...

Re: USB socket turns off

I've not tested this, but the 12V socket in the rear (boot) may stay live. You could put a USB adaptor into that if it does (and conceal the phone at the same time. I use the rear 12V socket with a USB adapter in my 2019 4HS to power the rear-view camera when the car is ON. This turns off when I le...

Re: Newbie - Full tank with full charge total range?

Depends on how you drive and the road conditions. I've done a 406 miles trip in one day before having to refuel in my 2019 4HS. I started with a full tank and a full charge but didn't charge during the trip. I only refilled at 406 miles because I bottled it and wasn't convinced I'd make it to the ne...

Re: To Eco or to not Eco - that's the question!

On my 2019 4HS, although ECO mode is not sticky (the car will always start in NORMAL mode), the A/C system IS sticky, so I usually select the A/C to OFF before I turn off the car, and then when I turn the car on again the next time, the A/C is still in the OFF mode which allows me to select ECO and ...
