  1. Today I had the unfortunate experience of the exhausted battery. Just 3 years after the purchase of the car! A possible fault of mine, if this is crucial of course, it is that the previous months I used the car everyday, but only for a few kilometers, and about ten minuted a day. This is what I needed it, but I did not ever thought that this could possible do any harm to aygo's battery... At the repair center I visited, besides the above explanation, also told me that batteries on the new cars, possible are older that the date of purchase of the car. Of course they are not plagued on the car, nobody says that. But if a new car is 3 years old now, the battery possibly is 4 or 5 years old now.... And also, this initial battery, was a rather small one, 35mah. They put me a new, 'bigger' one with 50mah, though a little bit more expensive, but more capacity and possible longevity. So, this is it with battery. Speculations or facts about the possible explanations, the true fact is that it happened to me. What do you think?
  2. How many years the initial battery of the aygo approximately lasts?
  3. Why the plastics of Aygo, had to be so 'soft' and easy to be scratched? No matter how much I do care of avoiding scratches, even the slightest accidental -a little bit harder- touch, can leave a permanent impact on the interior plastics. 😞
  4. Did anyone ever experienced any shortage of refrigerant liquid of the air condition on his aygo, and consequently a rather insufficient function of a/c? I have been generally told, that in most circumstances the refrigerant liquid is not a consumable thing. But from my other previous experiences, I had such minor problems with other cars in the past.
  5. 2 happy years of owning my lovely Aygo! And everything is fine! 🙂
  6. The Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) of Aygo, is the well known ESP ? If yes, they should not change these names, it is so confusing without a reason...
  7. No, I have not. Does it work for such situations? I am quite disappointed by 'magical' products that in the end do nothing. In the past I tried to reverse the blur of the front lights of an older car of mine with such products, with no success. I just thrown my money. So, does it work? Or, is the use of the official varnish a good idea?
  8. It seems that during my efforts for a better cleaning for local stains, I made something like an unresponsive scratch in my plastic bumbers. Actually it does not seem like a scratch on the color, but rather like the outdoor varnish has gone. What do you believe? I have bought a small set of color/varnish for my aygo. Should I try to locally put some varnish in this place?
  9. The meters/multi-information display, seems to collect/attract dust all the time. No matter how often I wipe it, no matter how careful I am in keeping the car's interior clean, this place always seem to be dusty. I did not had such experience with other cars, and this is why I can tell the difference. Anyone else observed this dust?
  10. Believe it or not, I check the money I pay and not the lt! Last times I usually paid about 10-12 euros, with fuel price about 1,6 euros/per liter. So it is rather expected this strange behavior in trip computer?
  11. Sometimes, I use to refuel incrementally(but always full refueling), even I have fully fueled the car recently, and I have made a use about 80-100km route. I have observed, that the trip computer, does not calculate well the 'range' of kms, in such cases. It seems to be almost stuck/not updated. After doing this twice, the total range did not changed at all, and it just continued to drop down. I guess that if I keep doing it, there will be one day, that I will have a full tank, but the range that trip computer will show me, will be something like 0 kms! Am I the only one that I experience this?
  12. A friend told me his thought, that the fact that aygo is identical with citroen c1 and peugeot 107, means that our car can have rather cheap official spare parts. Economies of scale, mass production, etc. What do you think?
  13. Don't you find a lot of scratches on the sides of front seats, due to limited space between seat belts and the seats?
  14. Giving the fact that there is no official support for roof bars, I wonder if these solutions can harm the rubber parts and the waterproofness of the car. It is nice to have even third party solutions, but we should be aware of possible faults. What do you think?
  15. It was just a rotation. Should I press this reset TPMS button myself, when a rotation or replacement take place? Strange enough that aygo was going for days after tyres rotation, and suddenly it decided to light the indication lamp, which was also like a false alarm. I am not sure about the relation with the tyres change, but I don't have any explanation for the incident. I think this topic deserves some discussion.
