For the climate control, mine is on all of the time (which is the point of climate control)I leave mine in Soft Auto mode, unless I need a quick cooling of the car in which case I switch it to Fast Auto.This system is intelligent so it only runs if it needs to so it doesn't use fuel unnecessarily.
Hi Fredgee, good choice of colour itwasn't available when ordering mine they look stunning in red, I think most on here would agree, you are going to bevery pleased with your 2008 it's a great package.
Coming from a 3008 1.6 diesel, my new car felt very nippy and i loved the small steering wheel (felt like a gaming wheel) the steering was really light and just felt right.
The cabin had a real premium feel to it and you cant beat that new car smell.
Had a play with the touch screen but had to stop myself from touching it while driving this could be a problem taking my eyes off the road.. But guess it wont be when i get used to the steering wheel audio/phone controls..
There was a menu on the screen in the settings called access or something ? Think it had a picture of a key (cant quite remember) but when selected there was nothing in the option to select. Is that normal ? If so then whats the point of the menu option ? (no info in the manual).
Glove box is rubbish.. Cant even fit the owners manual in it.
The stereo sounded better then I thought it would so thats a bonus..
Overall I love the way it drives and handles, and cant wait to drive it again tomorrow.
I've put this elsewhere but will mention it here too - that's due to the fusebox not being switched from Left Hand Drive to Right Hand Drive cars so the location (which is between the door and steering wheel on LHD vehicles and isn't an issue) eats into the glovebox - this is a common issue across all PSA (Peugeot Citroen) cars that aren't based on Mitsubishi platforms sadly.
Somebody posted a picture recently of their glovebox on a LHD car - very envious! In our old Picasso it wasn't an issue as there were two additional gloveboxes on top of the dash but with the DS4 storage is somewhat limited, and it's the same with the 2008 - we get a couple of cans of Pepsi Max in and the breathylisers sit there for trips to French-France and that's your lot!
