Collected the Car. Report. Performance??
As many of you know (thanks for the help already)
I was to collect the
on Sunday (which I did), and had a very lovely 3 hour ride home to test it out. The car is both quiiet and smooth and all the electrics work including the heated seats and the air con is FREEZING due to a recent regas.
Bodywork is very straight and paint damage is limited to a couple of stone chips but otherwise spot on.
Now the question bit
MPG was between 26 and 27.8 for the journey and I was just steady cruising at 80mph (cruise control work too
) With the air con running. Is that not a touch low??
Also the car seems relatively slow off the mark although it does get up to speed easy enough there is no real oomph in 2nd or 3rd to really get past things?
I'm only comparing to my ten year old 1.6TDi Astra but even that seems to be stronger in 3rd gear!!
Overall is there anything that may be compromising acceleration and fuel consumption (besides A/C which I turned off to see if it was that affecting the acceleration)?
