    J C got a reaction from Roxy1234 in 4WD version tyre types   
    Hi. ROXY1234 as you say tread depth in an ideal world best same but also do not forget different tyres / makes have a different rolling radius for same size of tyre that is to say different revolutions per mile so could in theory upset 4x4 but I suspect this was all taken into account on that drawing board , will I think be more of a problem in locked 4x4???

    Hi Yes i know what you mean I to prefer all tyres same on 4 x 4 but in auto back only comes in if front rotation is greater than rear so if front tyre is larger then it will have to slip more for rear to come in if front is smaller then it will in theory cause rear to work sooner maybe all the time now that said what if you use front only for say ten thousand miles now fronts are worn and now smaller so if you engage auto will it do any damage I would not think so , so the answer is no, don’t worry but I would go fo all same when new shoes needed

    HI  Just had 4 new tyres fitted on 4x4 KADJAR 1.6mm left on both rears and 2mm left on both fronts all 4 original contnentals and have been moved front to back  think about 9000 miles  16520 miles on clock  now  which considering i drive slow and smooth this i think is not good  last car did 40,000 on 4 again a 4x4  (renault koleos )  now point of this post only done a bit of local driving BUT the new shoes are in my opinion lots  quieter at 40 mph with window open than continentals with window closed  much much less noise new tyres have a B rating for economy  and a B for wet grip and 68 dB noise tyres fitted ROADSTONE EUROVIS SPORT 04  225/45ZR 19 96 W  extra load   paid £100 each will post on wear and motorway speed noise levels

    Hi Yes once or twice ours has not worked as should new batteries in remote solved it for us seems to be quite fussy about batteries cheap ones are useless for some reason , fit Duracell to be sure and don't forget , switch or similar  parts WILL be under warranty 🤔

    Hi How long is long term we had a koleos     New in2009 did just under 100,000 miles in 4x4 no problems but remember 4x4 is not permanently engaged only comes in when front wheels rotate faster than rear that is in auto , in lock it is what it says 4x4  50% front 50% rear but above about 20 mph it unlocks and returns to auto mode 😀

    J C got a reaction from AOne in How do you use start stop feature?   
    Hi Not sure if you call it a DESIGN PROBLEM when some or even most work fine, seems to me you have a faulty component which is quite different to a design fault, now all you have to do is convince your dealer to find said component hope it works out and you get it sorted.  👍

    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 🤔

    J C got a reaction from Kipper2008 in 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. 🤔

    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
