I have a new Skoda Suberb SportsLine from January 2017, the worst car I ever owned.
As it is a leasing car I'm trying to find others with the same issues to or convince the leasing to take back the car or find solutions to my problems
Does anyone have any of the following problems:
Airconditioning not keeping the temperature under controle Summer outside 25-28 °C inside 36 °C after 2 to 3 hours drive, Airco set to 19°C Now authom outside 8-15 °C inside going up to 25°C after 2 to 3 hours drive and than down again to 18-19°C, Airco set to 21°C Test done by the car dealer (car sitting stationary in the sun or indoors for several hours) are unable to reproduce the problem Navigation system driving you straight into a traffic jam If you try to go around it (manually) it tries to get you back into the traffic jam Wisseling noise in the doors Was already the case the first day I had the car The garage tuned one of the doors and it was better (not gone) Now again the noise came back --> Again tuning the doors? Settings of the car system changing without manual actions Headlights switch from right driving to left driving (when starting or stopping the car) Distance to car in front (Cruise Controle) resets to default, where setting in options is set to remain last setting Preselects of the audio system under DAB all gone, FM settings where still OK Tire pressure message (real left) but tires have normal pressure Message appeared but all tires have exactly the same pressure Engine Power is not transferred quickly to the wheels I'm driving an automatic shifting car (DGS) When switching gears you feel the care loosing power but hear the engine is producing more power After (feeling) 3 seconds you feel the car picking up speed an power again Adaptive cruise controle coming to close to the car in front When a slower car is detected in front my car keeps speeding towards the car in front Very late my car slows down to detect it came to close to the car in front (according distance configured) Following the cars slows down even more to restore the distance Need to fill-up the oil each 14.000 km? I never owned a car that needed to fill-up oil in between services (30.000 km) How can a modern car that should be eco friendly use this many oil --> Polution Fatige sensor questionable The sensor has warned me 2 times that it was time to stop and take a rest Both times where in the morning after a drive of about 2 to 3 hours I drive each week 2 to 3 times for 4 to 5 hours straight for work, never ever have I had a warning. At the 2 times it warned me I was not tired at all, I have drive afterwards under conditions where I was much more tired (still able to drive a care safely) Does anyone have expirience that this sensor is working correctly or is this just a money spender Cup holder The cup holder is not big enough to hold a standard can of soda drink, only small bottles or cups can fit into it
Any feedback of whoever expierianced any of these issues is well appreciated.
My car dealer is not supporting and claims that nothing of this is true
So I re-enabled my Traffic Sign Recognition again over the weekend using OBD11.
I can put up with the default "ding" and error message after about 30 seconds, when starting the car... and the feature IS kinda cool and useful.
Couple of odd symbols I've seen on my display though, that I have no idea what they mean.
Sometimes more than one speed sign will display, sometimes the speed with another odd symbol.
They display perfectly on the satnav, but they overcrowd on top of each other on the maxidot if you have another display for the main screen, and just the symbols on the top header line.
If you select the road signs as main display in maxidot, they show up multiple signs perfectly.
Thoughts on what these obscure symbols mean?
[ PS: apologies, I can't work out how to place pictures inline with the text, they only add as attachments at the bottom of the post.... is this normal? ]

This one obviously means different speeds for different times of day?
I can't remember exactly where this was, but I've only seen it show up once, and I've been through many school and roadworks zones with time-specific speeds, but this doesn't make sense. Schools would be 40. No idea where I've driven with a 30 limit that was time-specific.

This one was around the canal-side upper class areas of Gold Coast.
What's this one? Causeway? Boat ramp? Road prone to Flooding?
Again don't remember seeing the specific sign(s) that the camera recognised these from... I must have been staring at the mansions and massive boats (sorry, yachts), instead of the road !
Image TSR (1): And NFI what this one indicates !!!
Presumably a 2-lane road, but I can't think of any road sign that may be interpreted to display this symbol?
UNLESS it's the "euro" method of displaying Two Way traffic.
Being from a predominantly LHD database, this would make sense, with the red car being the oncoming car on the Left side?
I have a 2013 MY Octavia Elegance with Amundsen Sat Nav. A couple of days ago the dynamic route guidance and traffic features stopped working correctly. The DRG is not showing routes that are clogged up - eg, my commute on M1 between J15A and J8 always showed up with red traffic warnings, but nothing for the last few days, even when I am at a standstill. Likewise when you press the traffic button, it is not picking up the latest problems. The top traffic entry is the same one that appeared 4 days ago a traffic jam that cleared up 4 days ago!
I have tried to hold down power on/off button and menu button for a re-boot, but this has proved unsuccessful. Before I take it to Skoda for them to charge me for diagnostics, can anyone suggest a solution?
I have an 80 mile a day commute round, for the large part, the M25; a road well known for being a car park.
For this reason I leave the traffic reports (TP) on for most of the drive as to be notified to either take another way home or prepare for the long haul!
The other day I hit the back of traffic and realised that the radio hadn't chirped up once with the traffic reports. Since then I've come to the conclusion the function has entirely ceased to work?! I've tried many configurations of turning off and on the TP/ car and nothing seems to work?
Can anyone shed any light? Its a 58 P-FL PD170 vRS with a factory Stream MP3 and jumbo box.

Does anyone know if the traffic function on the Columbus system works in Australia?
