Thank you kindly for your feedback. How very discriminatory of the eco mode to have that scitzo 'attitude' to the temperature control system(s). Good job it isn't human or I'd speak to it severely!As the Corsa-e and the e208 share alot of components, I'll tell you what I know from the Corsa-e:
AFAIK, Eco mode doesn't restrict max speed, just the rate of acceleration. If you put you foot down all the way, it should also bypass the power restriction, giving full power (100kw/134hp), for emergency like scenarios.
As to Aircon in Eco mode: from my experience, it totally disables heating. But cooling seems to continue to work as usual.
It's because some testers have no idea how to make use of proper regen capable brakes. If you're not used to the type of regen that the car provides, especially when you first try the car, you tend to be a bit heavy-footed and the difference between the regen braking and the actual, physical brakes taking over, can catch you out until you get used to it.Thanks.
How are the spongy 'dead-feel-travel brakes' that I hear so many testers complain about? What's your own experience..?
With regards to ECO mode, this is what the manual says about it:To what top max speed does eco mode restrict the car?
Also, does eco mode entirely deactivate aircon or a lot or a little? What exactly?
