Hi all..
My (White) 14reg Stepway DCi 90 Laurette done 6k miles.
and I still love it , nearly a yr on :) never thought I would have it this long.!

Anyway:
Wondered anyone else noticed there Aircon making a Woooshing Sound
when switched on ?

I believe it's working ok, I Use it to help De-Mist the windows in this weather..

Note: I can only hear it when Stationary & My window is open..

always had cars with A/c but never noticed this before

just wondered if its normal ?

Hmmmm, I shall test in my Sandero this evening and let you know. It will make a bit more noise as far as I'm aware, but not certain :)

Is it a short intermittent 'whooshy-hisssss' type of sound very infrequently? Mine does it if so, it's been there since new so assume it's ok. The air con on my volvo makes a weird noise too but completely different in tone to the dacia.
Hi

I've got a 51 plate v70 d5 that I picked up in November for a grand, got an intermittent issue with the instrument cluster going off that needs sorting but other than that a hell of a car for a grand!!

looks nice..
I've had D5 diesels fir donkey's years I love them..
people always say why would you want a Slow old mans car ?
well they obviously have never driven one !
never had a slow one..
why do the police use them for pursuits ? haha

current one was 38k new, S80 D5 twin turbo ( it fly's)
but the auto box drastically hurts the fuel economy :(
but you can't buy the exec with a manual box..!
I'm realy missing the heated seats, but not any more of the toys
massaging seats, air cooled seats etc.

but I realy like my stepway :)
bought as a runabout But Now Its My Main Car..!
especially like the ave 55 mpg ,
and what else can u get with the spec for 11k ?

regards, Steve

The Police wouldn't use them for pursuits if the decision of what to buy was based on recommendations of the people who actually carry out the pursuits. I agree it is a nice car and perfectly servicable for everyday use however they are not a good pursuit vehicle. A moderately well driven Fiesta will out run one.

when you try it, load the boot up with at least 150kg, stick a fat passenger in the front seat and strap 3 breeze blocks to the roof. Watch out for the torque steer and try chasing it round a housing estate making a series of directional changes every 10-15 seconds. After 20 minutes let me know if you are still behind drugged up Darren and his mates in their Fiesta. :lol:
