2. On the HUD, as I was braking the word 'BRAKE' in red appeared, I've never seen this before, again any clues?

Cheers
The manual says it's the Collision Warning system or SBS (Smart Break Support). II guess you were about to hit something.

Re: White leather

I'm trying to decide if white leather will do it for me. I saw an early showroom-CX3 in Soul Red, when they first arrived, and the white leather interior looked fabulous. But I'm looking at a new CX3 in either Ceramic (Silver) of Machine Grey and just wondered, with the absence of white door cards,...

Re: Upgrade Sport Nav Manual to Sport Nav + Auto

Just a note on the fuel consumption that I mentioned previously. I noticed that the auto box was holding on to the lower gears for a lot longer than needed and certainly longer than required on the manual box. Now that I have got used to the auto I am using the paddles while in drive (D) and changi...

Re: i stop start

From a safety point of view I think its better that the driver turns it on (having identified the jam) I guess its a feature in its infancy so we should be patient. It's certainly not in it's infancy and I can't see anything unsafe about it the way it is......seems fine to me, leave it alone. Might...

Re: i stop start

I've had lots of useful answers re iStop from this site. It has provided my wife and I with yards of endless conversation over the last few months. "Did Istop work today" "no-but I think it did once" etc etc. Basically--there's nothing wrong with your car. Before you wade through the manual-my find...

My updated CX3 with better sound insulation and Toyo tyres is very quiet.
I have the original CX-3 on Toyo tyres and no noise problems at all.

Re: Voice control

I use the voice control occasionally; never had a problem with it and never noticed that message coming up. Just went and checked - nope don't get any messages. [/quote] Thanks for checking Alan, what firmware is your CX-3 running :?: (found in the settings area if you don't know). [/quote] The old...

Re: Voice control

Has no one else suffered this at all - can be quite random of course and if you don't use the voice control you would never know. I wonder if the 'Loading Voice Activation' text at top of the screen at start-up is relevant? ie if it doesn't show then it won't work - Does show then it definitely *wi...

Re: DRL's

This is the first car I have owned with DLRs-I can't quite get used to the need. I can easily tell if I need lights in the daytime and in every other previous car I have owned have been perfectly capable of switching them on or off according to weather, time of day etc. Yesterday though, I felt unc...
