4. Garages who don't know what a jacking point is
Absolutely. The worst is in a tight parking space: Squeeze into the car, activate button with backside on the way down, get out to re-close fuel flap, squeeze in, activate with backside again, repeat...* The button to open the fuel flap location, I keep hitting it when I exit the car
At least the 2nd point is solve-able with an MYP or JDD gearbox conversion though.Absolutely. The worst is in a tight parking space: Squeeze into the car, activate button with backside on the way down, get out to re-close fuel flap, squeeze in, activate with backside again, repeat...
I'd also like to moan about the lack of 6th gear in the TDIs and FSIs - baffling in a car supposed to maximise economy. The FSI is actually less economical at 70 mph than the 1.4 as the gearing means it's no longer in lean burn mode.
Lastly (for now) the oil filter location on the FSI in particular (it's similar to the 1.4 but extra pipework makes it more awkward).
Hate is a strong word, I suspect dislike is more appropriate.This is not meant as a general A2 bash but more of an airing of moans
Things I hate about the A2
The different height pedals - so annoying - you really have to raise your foot to get it on the brake. On a long trip you get backache!
The A pillars - I have got used to these but every now and again I miss the odd 4x4 or 3.5 tonner that is coming round the roundabout in the blind spot created by them.
The fact that my wife has no idea how to drive a diesel and insists on trying to drive it like her mx5!
I'm sure more will come out!
Think yourself lucky that your A2 has DIS Us plebs only get the bleep on low fuel.Only one thing comes to mind, the warning 'beep' when the washer fluid is low or one of the bulbs has gone... Takes away 5 minutes of my life every time, if I am going to have a heart attack, that will be the reason
1.2tdi has washer fluid reservoir maybe tiny bit more than 1 liter, so the beep is frequent. Especially good if you conserve fluid after beep, so it beeps multiple times more on a trip if it rediscovers after corner etc that fluid is getting empty...the warning 'BEEP'
