Re: New front discs at 34,000 miles? (55,000 km in new money)

The PHEV caliper issues are generally neither of those 2. For the fronts it is a bit piston corrosion, but also sliding pin corrosion. Both of these issues are nothing to do with fluid used etc, but are all about them not getting exercised much. The way that we tend to try and drive these things for...

New calipers for mine, NOT under warranty.
Outrageous isn't it? You shouldn't need new calipers after that distance should you?

Re: No AC output for the top trim level

Just to be clear, you are talking about the Alternating Current inverter output, not Air Conditioning

The brakes binding is not for reasons unknown - it's because they're poor quality calipers and don't get exercised much.

What have you had done to prevent them binding again? New calipers under warranty?

Re: New front discs at 34,000 miles? (55,000 km in new money)

If you drive sensibly, the car doesn't need to use the physical disks much for slowing except when the battery is full. It could be that lack of use caused corrosion to build-up, and that is not good for longevity. The last few mph before coming to a stop also uses the physical brakes which is enou...

Re: Tyres - winter and summer - or not. A review.

Having only used my Winters once in anger to get me off a snow bound French motorway which was jammed with stranded locals, I would never want to use anything else at this time of year. Frankly having paid almost £30k for a car, a few hundred extra for additional wheels & tyres is neither here nor ...

Re: Tyres - winter and summer - or not. A review.

The real cost of tyres is when you crash because you can't stop when you have the wrong ones. For that reason alone, I'll stick with proper winters, thanks.

Re: WiFi disable setting when vehicle is ON

No, it's App version related You are possibly not seeing it as you are not connected to the Vehicle when looking for it. The App has to be connected.

Re: Burning smell, loss if battery, return car?

Definitely looks like a heating/demist/cooling timer. Even if you do not see it in the display, it can be there in the background and visible on the App. Probably your best bet is to follow the procedure to reset the WiFi module as you'll probably want to do that anyway to register your phone and un...

Picking up from a different thread, is it possible to programme the MMCS to turn off heating?
Huh? It's possible to program in a timed session (start at hh:mm for x minutes, where x = 10, 20 or 30), but that's all. Meant for pre-heat, pre-demist or pre-cool.
