Rear door

Anyone else found the back door not lifting up - have knocked my head more than once! Seems very slow or stops before fully open.

Re: Wall charger recommendations wanted

Have had a Rolec 32amp for 5 months. No problems and very easy to use. Would like meter shoing KW but that was extra.

The cost was same for 16 or 32 here.

Recalls

Charging Time

Just turned 5000 miles and finding it jolly good. However now Polar are restricting to 90mins on fast chargers, does anyone know if the PHEV can be upgraded to take more than the 7kw? Also I still find the 'hill start assist' working when going forwards annoying. Take foot off brake just before halt...

Re: elec drive question

PHEV owner. Yes it does change - motor drives through gearbox. I presume that it makes better use of lower rev torque and optimises range?? My guess anyway! Done 2800 miles in 2 1/2 months - love it.
