Volvo v50 1.6d

I bought it to be an economical daily....the mpg is horrific for something so underpowered
It’s boring

Proximity sensors & surround camera staying on when it’s bleeding obvious the car is stationary & isn’t about to hit anything

Mine, 2017 Mustang GT, I only live 3 miles from work, yet I find myself having to fill up with fuel once a week.

Why......... Because some moron thought a 61L fuel tank was sufficient, it seems to manage about 220 Miles to a full tank.

So annoying, as I hate filling up with fuel, im sure they could have got a 100L tank in it?
My wife averages 25mpg from hers which is better than my C63, even though the Merc has 1000cc less.

If you hate refueling so much, to start a thread about it, unfortunately you've bought the wrong car. I'm sure you were aware of tank capacity and mpg when you bought it though.

Alfa GT - the indicators have a mind of their own.

Second annoyance would be the wide turning circle.

I do wish it was a GTD rather than a TDI...other than that it's pretty much spot on for what I need.

E61 5 series touring. If you have the luggage cover in place and open the boot it lifts the cover up out of the way. Helpful....... as long as you remember to put it back down again before you set off....... which I never do! Blocks most of your rear view.

Seat Leon. Have to move the mirror selector knob to select mirror heating. Every other car I know just does this either on its own or when you turn on the heated rear screen.

I bought my Honda with coilovers fitted, when I drive it I'm one of those fools who has to crawl over those straddle style speedbumps anything with standard suspension would glide over. I'll change it to something better but for now the suspension can stay for what I paid.

61L seems stingy, even my Subaru has a 65L tank. 100L tank would be absurd however

Seems to accumulate a lot of interior moisture/ condensation when parked up this time of year. Can be a pain keeping it demisted during driving.

Turning circle to the right is horrendously bad.

No cup-holders.

Alfa 147 - monstrous turning circle. Cruise ships probably turn tighter.
The placement of the boot open/hazard button next to each other.
The stereo - no aux’
And a bush the only squeaks when wet.

But the q2. 1.9 diesel and general feel of the car are fantastic.

CLK63 - before I changed it the suspension was too hard and the fuel tank is too small (~230 mile range).

One-touch window lowering - but I have to hold the bloody switch to raise them. Annoying.
