Re: steep hill vehicle stall

The handbrake bit is superfluous, the car has a anti-roll-back feature, but I wonder a bit about your difficulties starting up a steepish hill. Did you engage 4 WD Lock, which distributes power equally between front and rear motor? It seems to be the same problem described above; the electric motor...

Re: Poor mpg on outlander phev

It is a big, heavy lump of a car, I think 30 mpg is very reasonable. If you can't use the batteries for the majority of your miles perhaps a PHEV isn't for you. I read a few reviews on Trust Pilot prior to buying mine and quite a few owners were (unfairly imho) criticising their cars for returning p...
