I see that Skoda have now released an update which appears to have fixed the kangaroo issue on their 1.5 engines. See

That sounds promising. If Audi release an update to the ECU map I wonder if they will notify all affected owners or simply apply the update quietly at the next service?

I am meant to be getting my car around the middle of this month so I hope any software updates have been installed in advance of me getting the car.

With regard to the Skoda 1.5 engine fix, the Skoda group are now reporting the smoothness of take-off much improved but overall acceleration worse.

Not really the news we wanted to hear. I’ll be keeping a close watch on VAG forums over the next few weeks as Skoda owners report back. I wonder which manufacturer will be next to release an update to the engine map?

As others have noted, Skoda have released a software update for their version of the 1.5 engine with mixed results. VW and Audi can’t be too far behind.

I have just traded in my A1 1.4 for an A1 35 TFSI.
Gutted to find my car also appears to have the kangaroo effect. It is like being a learner driver all over again
Even worse today -it is only the third day I have had it- I was pulling out of a junction and the engine just died . Weirdly it didn't stall, there was just no power. I put my foot back on the clutch and started again but definitely didn't have to restart the engine.
I have seen on other forums about the 35tfsi engine stalling but presumed they meant they had to restart the engine.
Has anybody else experienced what I have just experienced?

Hi Karen,
I had exactly the same experience with my new Q2 35 TFSI. Mine also completely cut out when pulling away in 1st four times, requiring the engine to be restarted. This was the most dangerous aspect of the fault, which meant my wife was too frightened to drive it for most of the few weeks that we had it.

Long story short ... I collected it on 8th March, reported the fault on the 11th, notified the dealer and VWFS that I was rejecting it on the 26th, dropped it off at the dealer on the 28th and had all payments refunded on 12th April.

The rejected Q2 is listed for sale on the dealer's website so, who knows, they may have fixed it by now, although reading on the Skoda forums suggests that the update may not yet have been rolled out to the other VAG brand vehicles (i.e. Audi, VW, Seat) that have the same "1.5 TSI evo" engine.

Like you, I traded in an A3 convertible, with the "1.4 TFSI" engine, which we were very pleased with. When we test drove the Q2 it had the 1.4 engine, so drove fine, but by the time it was built, they had changed over to the "35" engine.

Good luck!
SImon.
