I have a Suzuki S-Cross 2021 , it looks like the car has carplay feature however the car won't connect to my two Iphones, I have tried many types of cables ,none of them works. Does anybody know how to fix it?
Have you gone into the little icon on the top left of the screen when you've got the Radio on, it should bring up a choice of what you want to connect. I have my iPod connected inside the armrest, and...my phone connected by Bluetooth. Hope this was of some use
Yes the S Cross does have apple car play. You connect your iPhone (I have an old iphone8) via a lightning cable compatible with your iPhone to USB A port in the s cross. The USB port is under t...
Hi Margie. Around 28k to 30k drive away should get you a new s cross. However if you haggle a bit you might be able to get a better deal as the s cross is not as popular as some other brands. Mine is ...a 2020 model and it has been very reliable and fuel efficient. I think there is a new s cross coming out soon, you might like to check that with the dealer. Make sure you drive some other cars too to compare, eg Vitara, ASX,Eclipse,Subaru XV or Hyundai Venue, Toyota chr. The s cross safety rating is not quite as good as the other brands as it does not have lane departure warning and some other electronic aids, but I have found mine to be safe enough for myself. If you do get an s cross see if your budget stretches to the prestige model. It has a couple of useful extras like reversing proximity chime and nicer seats. For a small car the s cross is very roomy but because it is light, on the open road I don’t think the ride is as good as a larger SUV. If you test drive an s cross or any other vehicle pay attention to the ride quality. The s cross performance is very good, no problems there. Good luck.
has anyone had steering column Knocks and received a hefty quote to fix it.
Just wanting to know if this one has capability to drive on sand?
2013 s-Cross GLX prestige 4x4
I live where I have to go over hills all the time, would you recommend this car? It doesn't seem great for that..
If you are constantly driving over hills, I would go for the 1400cc Turbo versus the 1600cc naturally aspirated engine. Both are great motors, the turbo will cope with the hills easier. Hope this helps you.
If your heart is set on a 4wheel Coca Cola can, I agree the 1.4L turbo is better however, a used Jeep Grand Cherokee with a V6 for the same or similar price will devour hills, but then again, anything with a 6 or 8 cylinder engine will. bye
Just bought the 1.4 litre turbo model it handles hills great
Glx model Bluetooth can connet more than one phone?
yes it can all you need to do is Add another phone to the list by letting the 2nd phone to scan for the available Bluetooth devices available .... as you did with the first mobile
if you need further assistant please ask ...regards Sam
My wife is thinking of buying a GLX. But we travel interstate, and to the North of SA, regularly; and the space saver spare wheel concerns me. Can anyone tell me the maximum recommended speed for the spare, and the distance that the spare will last for when travelling at (or under) the recommended maximum speed. Obviously a low speed on a country highway is dangerous, and the distance between towns where tyre dealers are situated can be a hundred (or more) kilometres. I have looked on line, but getting conflicting information. So I really need to get this from someone who actually knows the answer.
Hey Bankers, as an “outside the box” comment, do yourself a favour and take a Haval H2 LUX for a test drive. At the current price offer, it is outstanding value for money, the equipment list is as lon...g as your arm...the turbocharged 1500 engine performs well on the open road and the car comes with 5 year warranty and 5 year roadside assist. In your case it has a full size alloy 18 inch spare, although this has hurt boot space a bit, however if you fold down the rear seats, this should not be a problem. You will be surprised at the build quality and driving experience. I have owned mostly European cars and I was impressed. Naturally ther is a lot of bias and caution out there about Haval, but we are very happy with our H2 LUX. For just under $30 000 you can buy one model up, the H6, which is really something! As I said, don’t take my word for it, go for a test drive, you will be impressed! Feel free to ask me any questions. No I’m not a Haval salesman! Just feel people may be missing out on what for them, could be a good buy, due what I feel is bias in motoring media, to anything not mainstream. In driving tests of the Haval H2, in early 2016, it was rated 4/10. Recent road tests in 2017 have rated it 6/10 to 7/10, to me, more realistic ratings. Another example, the top of the range Haval H9, was accused in the media of being “slammed” in ANCAP safety ratings. It got a 4/5 rating, hardly “slammed” surely? Yet it was still voted as the 3rd best off roader in a recent Australian 4X4 magazine comparison test that included all the big names.
Thanks James. She ended up buying a mitsi asx. With a full size spare option. Quite frankly I think that all cars sold in Australia should have a full size spare mandated by safety regs.
GLX model - bluetooth connectivity - do you know if you can connect more than one phone (not at the same time) but it remembers more than one phone?
Yes you can save other phones. It defaults to the phone that was connected previously so you need to manually change to another phone.
Does the 2014 GLX comes standard with day time running lights? If so are they turned on when the engine is on? And only switched off when Headlights/Fog lights are turned on. (
Has anyone had issues with their Steering Wheel mounted audio control for preset radio stations? Instead of switching to the next station, the steering wheel audio control re-scan to the next station, in some instances skipping the preset stations?
