Re: My Cactus refused to start from cold

I've got a 6 month old 1.2 Eat6 cactus that's just started doing the same. What I would say is when it actually does fire up the engine shakes with violence like it's misfiring and being a 3 cylinder engine that's especially not good

Re: Changing cars

How do you find the ride quality new v old, I've got the latest 110 EAT6 Flair and whilst it does feel a bit soft I'm always aware of every imperfection in the road, not sure where magic carpet comes from, I'd say it's ok but nothing special

Re: Shuddering/Loss of Power

My main issue is the occasional cutting out, yes it's irritating and totally random and could cause you to lose power at a critical moment BUT as those with "stop/start" will know when it cuts out the power steering does too!!!! I don't follow this - your quote above is; "My main issue is the occas...

Re: Shuddering/Loss of Power

There aren't any paddles you can change manually using the gear lever It's happening at low revs, as it's new I've not pushed it much but when I've done so there weren't any issues In your case it might just be characteristic of the vehicle - see these short extracts of recent online reviews of 201...

Re: Shuddering/Loss of Power

Probably not connected in the slightest but the auto box is less smooth changing in the short time I've had it and easily gets caught out at slower speeds and becomes jerky. Also changing from say 4th to 3rd etc produces a slight nodding dog effect and that's me the driver. EAT6.

Re: Shuddering/Loss of Power

My engine is the 110bhp model and has done 450 miles. The issue has happened about 5 times since I've had it Maybe significant in that it only happens immediately after changing gear, 3rd to 4th to 5th etc and once from standstill, I put it into drive ie 1st gear after reversing off my drive then it...

Re: Shuddering/Loss of Power

I've bought a brand new Cactus Flair automatic 2 weeks ago and I've had that shuddering too. Acceleration moderately the box will change say for 2nd to 3rd and instead of going faster it starts acting like it's running out of fuel, but within a second or two it's back to normal, it's done it coming ...

Help, hydraulic progressive cushion...

Hi, I'm new hear and the proud owner of a brand new Cactus Flair eat6 automatic. I'm probably expecting too much but I'm a little disappointed by the ride quality, I feel pretty much everything on the road and as for speed bumps, small ones taken at say 20mpg has the car lurching violently over them...
