Have anyone done a long road trip with your new 3008? Would like to know how it performed and helped?
I’m trying to forget my trip, the car had only done 65 miles so I was taking it easy, I couldn’t work out how to set the cruise control and it rained most of the way. I was going to make a post about how I have found the 3008 whilst driving around in France so I’ll probably use this thread and post something this weekend.Could be wrong but I think Dautres is currently in France with his.
Yes I'm down here in the Correze experiencing mixed weather, sun one minute thunder and lightning the next. But that aside , apart from 4 hours on the ferry, I drove from West Yorkshire to the Correct virtually non stop.So is Yorky he did post he got to his destination South of Paris without incident
Just completed return journey from France, 700 miles with just a 4 hour ferry crossing break.Anyone care to share their road trip experience? Especially:
It would be good to know how comfy are the front and back seats, especially on long drives?
How does the car behave (overtaking and handling) when fully loaded.
GPS - how quickly does it recalculate routes? Is it accurate?
MPG.. are the manufacturer quoted figures close to real life?
Thanks yorky sharing experience. Hope other will also contribute.Just completed return journey from France, 700 miles with just a 4 hour ferry crossing break.
As with the outward journey I had a faultless trip. Very pleased with the car. I didn't have any odd noises that some have reported. To answer your questions.....
As I don’t use the passenger or rear seats I can only say the drivers seat was very comfortable and the lumbar massage feature worked a treat. I did have family passengers for a few miles in France and got no complaints about comfort in the back.
Handling was excellent and the sports mode gave me that extra oomph you sometimes need overtaking on country roads.
I used the Sat Nav all the time and made numerous recalculation with no problems.
MPG worked out at about 59MPG average on differing road conditions. I did use cruise control for a lot of the journey....French roads and conditions allow better use of cruise than ours.
My only ongoing problem, as most on here know, is the inability to connect to live services.
