Re: Heating when outside temp is below negativ 20 Celsius

Normally the car will do this automatically. This sounds like a fault. Consult your dealer.

Re: Let's stop ICEheat, when cold...

I don't use any sites like Facebook, so cannot really comment. Our 2020 UK model tend stay in EV unless the temperature is below 8/9 degrees C, if I switch the heating off press EV mode then switch the heating back on to 18/20 degrees C, unless it it below zero degrees outside it will stay in EV mo...

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

I quite agree it might be more socially acceptable to refrain from using an ICE in a built-up area, but that's not my point. No one has produced any figures proving it's more economical. Just a simple "it must be true" doesn't really cut it in scientific circles. I'm not saying it's untrue, merely ...

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

From my experience, I've tried to use the Save and Charge functions during my 2 years with my Outlander and the best advice I received was to just let the car do its thing and drive how you would 'normally'! Bloggsy 'Normally' the battery will be depleted down to nothing. Why should I let that happ...

Re: Just got my new 2020 Outlander PHEV. Looking into getting BIGGER tires. Would like some feed back!

Actually it depends on the profile of the tyre. You could in theory fit tyres that are several inches larger in diameter but are higher profile (i.e narrower). That would mess up the gearing but not the clearances. It would also look slightly weird... ;) And they would rub at maximum steering lock...

Maybe just go for the "off-road" look

If you fit smaller alloys with bigger tyres, so that the car still ends up with 18 inch wheels?
You won't get more ground clearance, which is the aim.

Re: PHEV 2018 - AA stops radio

It must be some incompatibility with Android - there are no such problems with iPhone.

I think you will find that there are no bigger tyres to be fitted, as these are the maximum size possible; there is barely space to use snow chains as it is. "A couple of inches" is a massive increase in size. In many countries it is illegal to fit tyres that are outside the car maker's specificatio...

Re: wheel spacers

And put undue strain on your wheel bearings. This is a 1900 kg car with an array of electronic controls on the roadholding. You'll only mess things up and make the car look silly. Leave such things to boy racers.
