    Dash Handbrake warning light flickering.... quite random. I’m guessing first port of call will be a duff hand brake switch , I only noticed it this morning whilst sitting in the car (fully handbraked obviously with engine running) waiting for someone. It’s still under warranty , so no big...

  11. So what’s going on here!! 1.4mpg

    Had my ForTwo almost 5 months. I reset the trip when I initially picked it up. Which has pretty consistently shown 44.4mpg. I checked the trip again recently and it’s now showing 1.4mpg. Obviously there is an error/software bug here. Anyone else seen it? I’m loath to just ‘reset’ the trip as I...

    I have a 67 plate Electric Drive Fortwo with automatic lights. My colleague pulled me over yesterday because he noticed that when I was leaving, I had a single fog light turned on at the front of the car (I think it was the near side that was on), this was while the dipped headlights were on....

  20. What’s your MPG?

    Curious what sort of mpg people are getting from their 453’s? I know NEDC mpg numbers are pretty bogus and ultimately pointless. But would be good to know if anyone is even getting close. My 453 has way better “claimed” mpg than my previous Roadster. But reality seems it’s a fair chunk more...
