Total blackout of infotainment and instrument binnacle

Really. It feels like you’re constantly goading people. From your many comments: You dislike and don’t trust VW, you think they are liars. You don’t particularly like the ID.3, but for some reason you’re buying two. You’re on a forum with a lot of people who are patiently waiting for a long time fo...

Total blackout of infotainment and instrument binnacle

So many issues. I think it is safer to buy a car with a 7-year warranty than the poxy 3 year offered by VW. More flamebait. Really? Is it VW do not have confidence in its products to provide a 7 year warranty? Even the Chinese MG gives a 7-year warranty. So does the South Korean Kia. 3 years warran...

Faulty new car

Is it a perceived view that the software on the ID.3, especially charging is useless or are the reports a distortion? Is the view actually true?

Faulty new car

Rejection MUST be in your mind… If you reject a car, do you keep the government grant and finance contribution, if you have paid off your car? Eg Car = X, Grant = Y, finance deposit contribution = Z Effective Payment = X - Y - Z Do you get back: 1. X (full price minus dealer discount) ---> Keep gra...

Re: Faulty new car

I can almost guarantee that those tools would become available more quickly when under the threat of rejection. Given that the buyer may have got an EV grant, PCP contribution and discount, the car may be worth more than he paid. The dealer would be happy for the car to be rejected, repair it and s...

Condensation and water droplets inside headlight

I am beginning to wonder if VW have learnt anything from dieselgate? No they have not. They are defending dieselgate. Then EGR failures after the software update. I hope they lose big time. Mechatronic failures as accumulator cracks. Worldwide recall except UK. VW just do not care. VW are the worst...

Re: Ohme Charge. Data charges possible

If you set the price restriction and nothing else its as good as scheduling 0030 to 0430 on Octopus GO. Just keep an eye out for Cherry's cousin trying to bum a free charge at peak times. 😀 Yeah it dawned on me earlier that with the price restrictions set it doesn’t really make much difference what...

Delivery time

PICG has been automatically extended to 12 months since November 2020, with a review due in February 2022. And Cherry is quite right in that the dealer can apply for a longer extension if necessary. Though as we are not yet at 12 month lead times, that issue seems moot. One source below for that in...

Re: Delivery time

If this is accurate, curious to know what will happen to OZEV grant payouts given i) the scheme's gradual phasing out, and ii) that grant orders are only valid for 9 months before they expire... If you are referring to the plug-in grant then chip shortages may qualify for exceptional circumstances....

Delivery time

Completely unrelated to your point (although that does scare me), your sig notes 13 Sep PCP approved. Just out of curiosity if anyone knows, can you have a VW order number without PCP being approved? Or do they go hand in hand? I've not explicitly been told my PCP has been approved as far as I can ...

Ohme Charge. Data charges possible

So I take it that you haven't had a concrete response for other contenders to unequivocally declare there will be no future charges? If that is the case then your statement will equally apply to any other charger that they "may" add charges in future for updates, tech support etc. beyond ...

Re: Ohme Charge. Data charges possible

IMore speculative nonsense because you assume there will be mounting SIM charges in the future and put a figure on that speculation. Ohme don't know what they might do in 10 years time, and nor do any other charger companies. Have you had a concrete declaration from the others that they will never ...

Re: Ohme Charge. Data charges possible

🤦‍♂️ this same Q has been raised before by the OP I believe. The simple answer is if you want to continue using 3/4G connection after three years you can buy data sims - exactly like the ones in the chargers for £15 or less. That last for another three years. Or you can revert to using the WiFi. Wh...

Ohme Charge. Data charges possible

I am glad someone else considers the issues. It is not that it is unaffordable. It is a hidden cost. Ohme have confirmed they do not know whether there will be charges. This is not misinformation. It is a fact. The thread is about Ohme data plans, hence the thread title. There is no need to post abu...

Please Cherry, just get the Wallbox.

Damn, I bit!
Have you considered they do not say what their charges will be for their software services after 3 years? Will they be free?

I just quoted their latest response. If it is not worth billing monthly they can do it annually or charge £5 a month to keep you happy.
