Last Monday, coming out of Truro, of course we had the inevitable RTA. The stop start was really put to the test. After about 15 mins of constant switching on/off I switched the start stop off as I could forsee the battery getting a bit tardy. At least it can be isolated.
As to the auto lights, I have to be honest and say that the Ford system is streaks ahead of the Honda one. With the Honda it did not recognise a good old West Country mist, nor light drizzle. The Ford is pretty good about both of these, even on a bright day, it will operate which the Honda system would not.
Of course each to his own but repeating myself, I was not a Ford fan BUT I think that good old Henry has produced at least a halfways decent vehicle. Of course, today off on a trip mixing with the visitors, I might have a different opinion.
The accident incidence has rocketed over the past weeks.
Completely off subject, watching the news about India and Kashmir I was surprised at the number of Ecosports turning up at the road checks. Obviously the Indian populace take no notice of the biased motoring press and their undying love for BMW and VAG.
I see that VAG in their ads for electric vehicles they MIGHT manage 340 miles. Clearly the Germans have managed to invent new batteries. I cannot believe that such ads escape the notice of the advertising watch dog. Especially after the con by German manufacturers regarding mileage obtained from each gallon of fuel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
