Re: Hill Start

Update, went to have it checked at Vauxhall. They said nothing showed as an error, but the hill assist/breaking system was recalibrated and it was definitely better but not totally fine. So in frustration and even with losing some money in the exchange I traded it in and bought a BMW X1 instead arou...

Re: What don't you like about your Grandland

Things I don't like Hill assist is terrible. Footbrake or parking brake both have issues. With footbrake on, even on a slight incline and I take my foot off to accelerate and the car rolls back! Yes works fine on a steeper hill. With Parking Brake as soon as you touch the accelerator the brake insta...

Re: Software/Firmware Update

I just tried it on Sport Nav 18 plate says hardware not compatible with this update or similar message. Great.

Re: Does your suspension make any noise going over bumps and potholes?

I don't hear anything odd going over bumps, same model but lower mileage under 11k. Could be something worn in suspension anyway after 18k miles or as Blueyhills says something stuck.

I recently got the Sport Nav (early 2018) and for me using the parking brake on a hill is useless as when you press the accelerator to move off the brake immediately comes off and you roll back! As it's not manual hand brake you...
