Introducing myself to the forum

Post by johnboy » Wed Jul 22, 2020 9:21 am

Hi all from Aberdeen Scotland, just bought today 21/7/2020 my new Grandland X SRI NAV Turbo 1.2 White with Black roof, and it looks GRAND right enough lol.

As me and my wife had a car each and this lockdown started we realised we didn't need 2 cars so traded them in and now the driveway looks sooooo much bigger lol.

Have added all the mod cons ie winter pack, chrome roof rails, Tec pack, body protection upgrade,even added the spare wheel A WHAT THE HELL.

so now i have it home all the info and its baffling, prob have lots of questions to ask as i go, but can anyone tell me when i reverse there is no noise ?? till i am near an object, is this right as all our other cars made a noise as you reversed this one only when about a mt away, is there an option to have the noise on while reversing.
i am sure ill be back with more questions, but loving the way it looks and drives

Welcome on board! Nice colour and extras choices!

My reverse sensors only beep when it's nearing something.

Hi people, my handle is Uriah Heep (my favourite band) and I am just about to order a new grandland X hybrid, business edition. Loved the test drive and all the info I have seen seems very positive, I would however appreciate comments/criticisms from anyone about this car, it is also my first Vauxhall.
Thanks.

My only problem is the Hefty price tag on them

Can't argue with the price tag and I do not think they will reduce when their popularity grows either but the test drive convinced me to spend the extra bit for fuel economy (and the environment), just hope the car turns out to be as food as my Renault Captur in the longer term.

Hi all, recently got a 2019 1.2 turbo sport nav, was looking to get a rear bike carrier for this car but have seen on reviews that one can’t be used on Grandland x, Vauxhall dealers don’t seem to know only that they don’t sell them for this model, would anybody know the reason why one can’t be used, thanks if anybody can help, Grey

Hi gpwilliams

I just did a quick google search and this came up so should be the same part numbers for Vauxhall as its opel. Hope this helps.
