That is a characteristics of the hadex system in that it has to detect a small amount of slip before the rear wheels join in.
It has been refined through the various generations to limit that, so unless its more than just a quick slip then its normal

No map on mine but apart from a quick skip on a loose footing it feels nothing but planted and sets off like a scalded cat!
Have you scanned it for any issues?
 
My car is mapped Alan,Ju may well be right,but I dont experience what you are when I give my car the beans. Uneven surfaces or damp roads sometimes make the t/c light flash briefly,but that’s it.

A decent run should get you into the low 30s Alan, the few times I ran the Performance from Warwick down to our Staines office M40/M25 I'd see 31-32mpg actual with the DIS claiming 37..yeah pigs might fly!

But what did the dis say?
Mine averages 25 but I don't believe it!

DIS tells porkies! With Alan achieving 29.15mph actual, DIS would have said something like 33.7mpg :blahblah1:

Quite surprised you still have it Alan after the few wobbles you've had in the last year.
It does go to show what a compelling package the RSQ3 is and how hard it is to replace for the money!

RSQ3 for the money , Nothing better what I know off, Big When I do change Its going to be a newer model Vorsprung Sportback, one @ Overton Prestige really nice £59.500, Or Im going to look at a SQ2 , massive OR, Ill more than likely keep mine , As Im to tight.

SQ2?
The new shape is better looking than the old one but it would never replace an RSQ3!
I'd say blow your money on the new RSQ3 or save your money and keep the trailblazer RSQ3, you'll have £35k in your pocket to spend on the rest of life's pleasures
