What's the worst bit of your zed?

Post by MACK » Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:54 am

Like the title says really, just out of curiosity whats the most annoying bit of the zed for you and your reasoning. I don't think I have seen a similar thread on here, at least nothing recently but apologizes if there is.

For me it has to be the curs-id LED rear brake light. What a pain in the arse they are! I'm now on my fourth in two years of ownership. OK there was nothing wrong with the first one, I just swapped red for clear but two clear failures down the line this has to be the most annoying bit for me.

Whats yours?

Third that, seatbelts are not right..

Plus the rattly interior. Shouldn't happen on an expensive, premium car like these. Smacks of cost cutting.
Still not got time to write a signature, it is sunny out there! Quick! Top down, full pose mode.....now!

Rattly interior drives me nuts!
Also the stupid "Soft touch" plastics on the steering wheel - seems to wear off instantly and looks crap.

Strap it in, I would anyway as otherwise it's prone to flying off the seat!

Is this common? I thought it was just mine that beeped if I left a heavy coat on it, let alone Watneys Party 7.

Buy a facelift car :wink:

In all seriousness, the facelift cars had more sound insulation / deadening.
