Re: Jerky ride

I too get a hunting, lurching. Usually in a low gear, trailing throttle situation. Feels like the fuel injection is some how out of sync with the air flow. Carburrettor engines suffer hunting, i.e., speed variation at idle, when the mixture is too rich. It could be an ECU or sensor issue.

Re: Noise!

Noise?? My CX came Toyo Proxes. Silent as the proverbial!! Then again I also drive an MGB GT V8. Induction roar, wind noise, exhaust burble, axle wine and clunk. Anything quieter than front of house at an Oasis concert would be regarded as quiet.
It's all relative!!

Re: Whats the real MPG

Well i'm still waiting to see the "magic" 40, in any situation!! I did see 39 today, on a longish journey, so maybe it's slowly getting there after 1700miles. Hardly, in old fashioned terms, run-in really!!

Re: Sat Nav

After several navigation issues, I contacted HERE who produced the mapping software. We exchanged several e-mails concerning non recognition of addresses and addresses which were entered correctly but saved as something entirely different, even in a different location, and odd other issues.

Re: Stopping engine with istop

I'm sure somebody, somewhere will be able to disable i-stop permanently. As for benefits?? Battery drain, starter gear wear, I cringe every time i forget to disable it. Fuel economy?...................Doubtful. Pollution?............Crawling through a busy city, possibly, but not sure how the mixtur...

Re: Hunting

Andy, Not exactly, it's more "lurching" on a trailing throttle, in low gears.e. when slowing down for a junction. More pronounced when slightly downhill.

Re: What updates for the New 2019 CX3 would you like.

You can keep the electric brake, it probably just speeds up assembly, cuts costs and gives the service mechanics one less thing to do, i.e., adjust the cable, with no commensurate reduction in service cost!!

Hunting

My 2018 CX3 2.0 petrol AWD, "hunts" (always has) when in a mid gear, in a more or less trailing throttle situation. Is this a software thing which could be remedied by the dealer?

Re: What updates for the New 2019 CX3 would you like.

A Sat Nav which works would be a good start.
Harder lacquer.
Sliding sun roof as standard.
A spare wheel.
