other than that niggle , any other issues ??
Just an FYI, posted that night after taking delivery of the car and I wanted to read the manual first to see if there is a reset of some kind. Thought I would post to let others know of the fault with the intention of providing the solution.Sure. Seems stoopid to report a fault on a public forum with a car less than a day old without reading RTFM or advising /asking the dealer for a solution.
Turns out my 5yo coulda told ya - turn it off and on again.
Not my place to administer threads either, just sayin seems stoopid, defeatist. Opens the doors for whingers and non-fans to just have a bitch.
That's a big thing when you buy a new model car , you will find something's that may not be absolutely perfect , good to hear that you are happy though .Not that I have noticed so far. A couple minor things which differ on the negative compared to my VE Calais V but all in all, a very nice car.
Have heard that from others. From what I understand they have changed the heater unit to a Denzo (Toyota ) item and isn't as good as the previous one (Air international??? - can't remember). If it's anything like to the one in my 200 series then I'm not surprised.My VY and VE were great cars.... ONCE the niggles were ironed out.
ATM the biggest niggle with the VF is that the heater is very ordinary. i.e. Setting the heater between 23 to 30 does not deliver the heat you would expect or similar to what I experienced from the VE.
I wont stress about until the first service.
I am surprised about the mirror repeaters and HID's (on the upper models) too.Positives (just for something different) :hmmm:
Remote start is great for frosty Melbourne mornings. (warms up very quickly)
Voice recognition is excellent. Even beats Siri on the iPhone
Bose sound system is excellent even if the interface was developed by Panasonic.
What I think is missing IMO.
Blinkers on the mirrors.
LEDs in the blinkers/brake lights
Auto-dimming rear view mirror
Salesman is an idiot, you wont get defected.I'ts my first post here on this forum. I'm now the proud owner of a VF SV6 Sportswagon. As mentioned before, the heater is not so good. On a morning with 6 deg. outside I have to turn the temp up to at least 28 to get comfortable and the air on has to be off. On my previous car I could leave the aircon on and 24 deg. have been suffice.
What bothers me more is that the new car sales guy told me that I get defected if I leave the tow hitch attached and that is why I'm supposed to take it off. Further, if I attach the tow hitch it it automatically disables the park assist sensors.
Can anyone here confirm my tow hitch issue?
Btw. The first 200km have been a pleasure in this car!!!
he quite possibly could get defected. leaving a hitch on is a danger(protruding object that can cause harm), and you can be fined for it if you dont have a trailer attatched.Salesman is an idiot, you wont get defected.
Plugging the trailer into the socket will disable rear sensors. The door in the socket has a magnetic switch in it.
Yes you are correct but has anybody ever heard of it happening??? Certainly not a VF only specific problem and I dare say anybody who has had that defect would have had lots of other things going on at the same time.he quite possibly could get defected. leaving a hitch on is a danger(protruding object that can cause harm), and you can be fined for it if you dont have a trailer attatched.
