  1. This seems to be the problem. DAB works OK for me (if I ignore the lack of track information) apart from Heart channels which consistently drop out. And it is just Heart. Other Global Radio stations such as LBC and Capital are fine. I don't know what they are doing to make the reception different but it does seem to be something to do with Heart as well as Renault as we don't see the same problem in our Fiat 500.
  2. AEB - Active Emergency Breaking

    I think it kicked in for me one day. To be honest I was sh****ng myself so much I can't be sure but the cars in front of me in the fast lane of the M25 decelerated so fast that I was looking to go in to the middle lane but another car was there. The car shuddered a lot and I did stop in time, albeit at a very slight angle, but that may have been me pressing the pedal as hard as I could. One things you will see from time to time is a warning that the system isn't functioning. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it but I would say every couple of weeks it appears for a few minutes but it can be on different types of road, speeds and traffic conditions.
  3. Bose Plastic Tab on Dash Speaker

    Morning, this was one of the early annoyances and it will indeed come off. However I heard about it before receiving my car and asked the dealer to do it for me. I don't know how he did it I just know the salesman said it came off easier than expected.
  4. Speedo

    I think that's when it hasn't seen a sign for a while so it can't be sure that is still the limit. It also happens when it sees a national speed limit sign as it doesn't know what that is in different countries whereas it's easy to know what a number means.
  5. Digital Radio Disaster

    Agree with this. Kiss, Absolute 80s, LNC and Radio 5 Live are rock solid. Heart Essex cuts out within a couple of minutes. Don't know if they broadcast a different codec or something.
  6. Daytime Running Lights

    I agree that is annoying. I can only presume that the legislation is to make you visible to pedestrians you are driving towards rather than to make you visible to other drivers which, in my opinion, is more likely to be an issue.
  7. Drive-through carwash

    I've recently started applying Valet Pro Citrus Pre Wash before the Snow Foam. Probably overkill but I am seeing great results and I really do believe it is making a difference.
  8. This forum.... needs a bit of levity

    Great article and so true
  9. Kadjars seen on the road.

    Did a 180 mile round trip on Friday around the M25 and M4 and saw two so they definitely aren't too common yet.
  10. Black on car

    Funnily enough I was looking at mine yesterday and thought they looked a bit faded but blamed it on my eyesight. Now that you have said this I will keep an eye on it. Although alansig has a point about hand car washes etc I don't think it should make any difference what it's been washed with after four weeks. If it's fading then that's substandard. Going by your username do you have a titanium grey Kadjar? I do as well so maybe there's a faulty batch out there on the day they did grey! Unlikely but you never know.
  11. I suspect it's the air recirculation that's the problem. I've done around 4000 miles in my car and not had this happen at all whether the air con or the climate control is activated but I don't have recirculation on.
  12. Real world mpg

    Same engine and drivetrain here. After 3700 miles of mostly town driving but a 100 mile motorway trip one a week I have settled at around 46MPG. Very slightly disappointed but as I used to get 42 in my 1.5 Grand Scenic I can't complain. I use Eco Mode sparingly mainly because I forget it's there.
  13. Had my Kadjar for just under four months and in the last fortnight I've had the alarm go off about ten times. Random weather and times and parked on a driveway in a village with minimal passing traffic and none anywhere near the car. As it lasted three months without going off at all that suggests there is a bigger fault than just misaligned sensors. Luckily I can get to the dealer without too much fuss but thought it worth mentioning for future sufferers.
  14. One time when you will switch to manual, if you're a sensible driver, is during a storm or similar weather. Although you have the daytime running lights you won't have any rear lights unless you turn them on as the auto light brains don't seem to detect it's got darker.
  15. Keycard

    Same here. It was decided before we'd even left the showroom and it's my car
