Lots of the functions donâ€™t work wellâ€¦ speed settings randomly flick between mile and kilometres which makes using the active cruise control and overtaking/ motorway driving unsafe. This has been reported to Cupra but still not resolved. Satnav is not great and voice control awfulâ€¦ canâ€™t even find Manchester airport!!

Quite often experience issues with the in-car computer system and screen that handles most of the in-car technology. Always slow and can typically take a second or two to respond to each press. Also often some aspects of the software won't load or don't work. For example, on odd occasions Navigation will be unavailable, and on other instances you press to change the fan speed or temperature but nothing happens. Normally the issues resolve themselves upon next entry/journey in the vehicle, but is quite frustrating at the regularity of problems or flaws.

The vehicle tech infotainment system is very temperamental, and also i find it difficult to use especially when driving. You can not switch off the lane keeping assist I'm sure its fantastic driving along the motorways and highways but on country roads and back roads its dangerous and I've narrowly escaped ditches, hedges and on coming traffic when it picks up something that resembles a white line on the road. its been a nice car apart from a few small issues (as above)

Fuel consumption is a bit more than expected. Infotainment centre / software is full of bugs and continually fails to load certain items, and also turns off several driving safety measures by reporting faults for no reason. Once the vehicle has been turned off for a short time the faults reset.

Not fit for purpose, cruise control is dangerous

Really like the performance, excellent. Boot space is limited. And the economy is reasonable when you drive sensibly. The infotainment system is poor though, consistently needing rebooted.

I love the car but the software is absolutely shocking. I am sure Cupra are well aware of the issues as it affects all VAG group cars but they donâ€™t seem to have come up with a fix yet

Far too many issues with the infotainment / ACC systems and little to no customer support to resolve. The car was supplied with known issues and I am still awaiting resolution 14 months later.

Excellent car, computer systems have a mind of there own and detects faults all the time. When flashing the headlights there isnâ€™t a separate full beam bulb so the lights rise instead of flash which makes it difficult for other people to see.

Distinctive car that comes with good build quality

Iâ€™ve already emailed lease plan a month ago to find out if I can send this car back as itâ€™s tried to kill me multiple times and has impacted my mental health awfully as Iâ€™m so so so anxious to even drive it. I WANT IT SENT BACK, if a human and not a robot can get back to me that would be great!

A very good car indeed (VZ3 Formentor 310)....except for: Infotainment system takes an age to get going and is very "glitchy" and there's always something not working with it. There's no low windscreen washer fluid warning...on a Â£46k car?? Heater controls not illuminated - guess in the dark and who at VW/Audi/Seat/Cupra thought that was a good idea? Heated Steering wheel something I have never considered but would have again. Engine and performance great & fake sound agreeable. Seats very comfortable. Power tailgate takes a few swipes of the foot to get going. Keyless entry doesn't work in the cold. The Cupra Connect app should be free for the first 3 years at least (again - Â£46k car) so I have not renewed that after a year. Rattley passenger heater vent until the car gets warm. very noisy and juddery rear wiper. Wireless phone charger good and wireless Apple CarPlay great. Auto start stop engine a pain and a pain to switch off every time. Auto hold takes a bit of throttle to release - better on Seat, Audi and VW. I ticked that I wouldn't lease this car again only because I never have the same car twice in a row but I would consider this again...perhaps the VZ5?
