  1. New Front Tyres

    Hi Yes which ones are the above please look like good ratings to me and are they 19" and where from please don't ask much do I many thanks hope they work for you 😀😀 JC😎😎☕️
  2. New Front Tyres

    Hi Yes ours are wearing on all of tread nice and even just wearing a little tooooooo fast for me. I do try to keep pressures correct and always check when cold👍👍 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  3. Hi Yes know what you mean I go 30 miles to a indipendent renault dealer local national said when I was buying it I would not get a better deal in lancashire and he was right they have all the dealerships in Lancashire and yes they are COWBOYS they even tried to fit a new headlamp to solve an alignment problem on a friends panda £400 when it just needed adjusting I ended up in dare I say it YORKSHIRE to buy ours and yes a better price toooooooooo😀😀 JC 😎😎🥃🥃
  4. New Front Tyres

    Hi Yes see your point about wheel size BUT it is TYRE size that matters not wheel size or more importantly rolling radius and as 17 and 19" tyres have same rolling radius 19" is a lower profile tyre the overall diameter is same at point of contact with ground. ( tread if you see what I mean ) and as for wear on edges of tyre if both edges wear it will probably be under inflation if only one edge per tyre may well be tracking🤔🤔🤔 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  5. New Front Tyres

    Hi Yes ours is fast heading for new shoes to. done 16000 may get 18000 are you ready out of four moved front to back at 8-9000 previous car KOLEOS did 40000 miles on four so kj not quite so good WHY ??i suspect it is the tyres and not car ours at least are worn even across tread on all four so down to compound I think ours is 1.6 4x4 and is probably faster on acceleration than 2.0 litre koleos , driving style has a huge influence also and your country lanes and town driving will reduce mileage I would think acceleration and braking corners and all that I am hoping for more from replacements that will not be continentals for sure 🙃 JC😎🥃🥃
  6. Hi Yes it is true dealer will do warranty work no problem BUT IF YOU HAVE issues out of warranty you will have to pay for repairs , maybe if dealer serviced Renault will often pay or part pay for some things we had a koleos. 4x4 did a wheel bearing 8 months out of warranty and 70000 miles but as dealer serviced Renault agreed to pay for repair when speaking to them fact that Renault serviced made all the difference and they cannot say maintenance not correctly carried out if they have done it 🤔 JC😎😎🥃🥃
  7. Hi Oh yes it is, I think all slightly different 🤔 JC 😎😎🥃🥃

  12. New member

    Hi Yes it is for pollution coming in from outside suspect if you go to rural area it will show ok . Now as to smell may be clutch or brakes , has to be said most clutch issues are down to driver, now that said if you have had difficult hill start and slipped clutch for a while to get moving you may get a bad smell from clutch and it can linger for a while if clutch is working ok and not slipping you may well be ok and I personally would not let Renault pull it in bits and chance paying for it unless they are definitely calling it warranty work 🤔 JC 😎🥃
  13. Hi Yes most of above is correct but ours works long before normal running temperature is achieved Now question was how do you use stop start with same turned on ( switch on dash right hand side ) when driving and you stop say at junction YOU THEN PUT FOOT ON BRAKE GEAR TO NEUTRAL AND FOOT OFF CLUTCH failing to do ALL the above engine will keep running I think , this is not a fault but just how it works 🤔 hope this helps 🙃 JC. 😎 ☕️ 🥃
  14. How to start cruise control?

    Hi Your wellcome 😀 And keep cruising 🚗 👍 JC😎 🥃
  15. How to start cruise control?

    Hi Sounds to me the only possible thing you could be doing wrong is having foot on brake or clutch pedal which turns off the system so I suspect it will not allow it to turn on just a thought hope you get sorted soon 🙃good luck. 🤔 JC😎🥃
  16. Torque display

    Hi NOT the rocker switch but try the one on right side of steering wheel that looks like pages of a book and as a thought 🙃 not all option's are available on all dash options Just play around see what you can find ours has one to show 4 x4 power distribution front to rear good luck 😀 JC. 😎
  17. Hi I would think not and not noticed anything while messing with r link I say I would think not as it is a legal requirement to have tpm system working in U.K. Not sure about EU , I am Presumeing you are in U.K. If so be aware your insurance may be void without it and also be warned snow and winter tyres can have same problems with insurance ( modified vehicle ) i.e. not standard tyres !!!🤔 JC 😎🥃
  18. Hi From HK

    Hi Not sure why you got a kj if so many things you don't like and bye the way auto door lock is on kj but it can be turned on or off in r link 🤔 as many other features are 🤔🤔 Anyway hope you enjoy your Kia ''tis a good motor 🤔but not as good as our 4x4 RED KADJAR 😀 JC. 😎
  19. Service Intervals Display

    HI WELL DONE YOU have a drink to celebrate your success JC
  20. Kadjar Drivers Anonymous

    HI Yes and very well put in my opinion one thing missing in my eyes though WHO IS THE DEALER PLEASE then we are all warned 🙃 town would work 🤔 JC 😎
  21. Service Intervals Display

    Hi Just google it says how to reset service interval and suspect when you reset to two years or whatever light may well go out perhaps possibly ????🤔 Should have been done at service point unless you did it yourself of course 🤔
  22. Hi So on that principle a 40 tonne semi should stop quicker than my kadjar not to sure about that myself🤔 JC 😎
  23. HI YES that is very true indeed could argue it takes LONGER to stop as 4x4 system is heavier ---so think momentum and all that it must take longer to stop also in case of kadjar fuel tank is bigger more weight again oh my god mine will never stop so, be careful out there JC
  24. New Tyres

    HI Turboted 10 refers to moving wheels and then getting correct pressure on tpms but on wrong corner of car, before I moved my wheels back to front i wrote down tyre pressures on all 4 tyres BEFORE moving wheels around and checked what pressure on each corner AFTER, pressures moved with wheels ie rear pressures moved to front , i have no idea how it works but you CAN move them around no problem. On the dealer thing my dealer said they would need re calibrating on the system for the car to find them but they are mistaken in the case of kadjar maybe so on other / earlier models i don't know but not on kadjar JC
  25. New Tyres

    HI YES you can move wheels around on kadjar front to rear rear to front just change them around and press reset on screen drive and car will find location or at least ours did in APRIL 2017 when I put rear on front so as to need 4 tyres at same time will be about 16000 miles for 4 which is not good as I got 40000 out of four on KOLEOS in 2009 tyres not car i am hoping though with Kadjar all worn even accross full width of tread so cannot blame car me thinks ours is 4x4 so like all tyres to be same make model rolling radius and all that JC
