  1. I'd recommend a Jazz, didn't think of that one. First car I drove and only got written off in an accident but had no issues with it.
  2. I've had both cars. I'd definitely go for a yaris although I've been happy with my last two aygos on finance. I drive automatics so can't comment on the clutch issues. Maybe see if you can source automatic yaris or an aygo for her?

    TSS

    As in the title, what does TSS stand for? I've seen them as options on the new aygo models but what's the difference between a normal x play and a TSS x play?
  4. yes the X shift is automatc
  5. My X shift sometimes varies in times she'll turn over before starting. I have to press the brake pedal down firmly otherwise she doesn't do it at all.
  6. If its not driver error as suggested above I would keep insisting they find the issue otherwise they could end up replacing the entire Aygo under warranty. Even if it means leaving it with them for a few days and having a courtesy car.
  7. Mine doesn't stay on as the dog knocks it off (medium sized cockerpoo) with one swipe. So its buried underneath the boot stuff at the moment until the time comes to clean her out and swap lol.
  8. I have an X play MMT 2017, so it isn't up to date with the current style Aygo. I connect my phone through bluetooth for answering any calls and playing music which is great. I still tend to use my phone for browsing music choice before setting off. I've found that even with driving in E I have got to know what gear Rosie is likely to be in so if I know I'm going downhill and I know she's probably in 4th gear I do sometimes override with the paddle to change down to 3rd as it helps with speed control without using the brakes too much. The rev counter helps a lot with knowing what gear she is in, the lower the revs the higher the gear.
  9. I doubt a brand new battery would be dead after only two months?
  10. Have you made sure you turn up to full volume on the iphone? When I play mine its always turned up to full volume then I adjust with the volume on the car radio.
  11. I've got the X shift X play, bought 2017. I personally love the way the car drives and having driven mk1 and mk2 aygo I'm used to the noisy 3 cylinder engine. I think it adds to the charm, and I've often pulled away from lights leaving other traffic at a standstill, and she's responsive when accelerating away from roundabouts. If you drive in rush hour the lack of clutch to control would be a bonus for you I think. I have given manual mode a go with the flappy paddles and it does work well although I don't think its true manual mode as the aygo still changes down automatically.
  12. I stopped using mine as it kept coming off

    Auto gearbox

    I leave mine in E unless I'm stopped for ages then I select neutral
  14. As said by Frostyballs, I treat her more like a manual rather than an automatic apart from driving in E. If they're designed to be overridden then it won't harm the transmission.
  15. My x shift likes to stay in a lower gear going up hills like 3rd or 4th depending on the gradient but she changes up as soon as she can. I override it sometimes going downhill as I find that engine braking is better than using the brakes for speed control.
