Re: Car won’t start and strange symbol

A month to fix due to no techs? Unacceptable and I am usually quite tolerant of garages. VW should arrange to get it to a dealer that actually has enough techs to work on it.

Re: Tyre pressures at delivery?

I had my new car delivered at 40 and 41 Psi front and rear. The normal setting is 36 for the car, so yes, the garages often over-inflate them!

Re: Is Maintenance on a lease good value?

I would say that it really depends on the vehicle. Sometimes on an ICE vehicle with 10k or annual services it can be a good deal, but on an ID3 with ts limited servicing needs I would not bother. Also, your tyres will last the three years at only 5000 per annum.

Re: Keyless entry

The Life model doesn't have the keyless entry or locking. The "Central locking system "Keyless-Go"" refers to the ability to open the car with the fob by pressing a button and then being able to start and drive off without having to out the key in a slot or press a button to 'start' the car. Confusi...

Re: ID.3 Tracker?

"And why can't it?!"

I would imagine there would be many, many legal hoops that VW would have to jump through to get that feature onto the app. Just look at the legalese that Apple tracking of the phone.

Re: Humming noise above 60 mph

I don't notice a humming noise. The only way to know what it is is to drive another ID3 to see if it makes the same noise.

Re: Unable to load connection status

Don't you have a speedometer in front of you as well? Why do you have to guess what speed you are doing if the HUD goes off?

Re: ID 3 ordered..

Congrats on the goo decision! With your mileage per day then Octopus Go, with its 5p per kwh from 0030 to 0430 tariff each night would be ideal. We have had an Andersen A2 installed and so far it has worked perfectly when timed charging the wife's ID3. We use the Andersen Konnect app schedule timing...

Re: Over the air updates and app update

Models will be kept at the same software level as new cars throughout their entire life cycle.
That's the best bit. Older vehicles won't be penalised when new software updates appear.
