There is a lot about this on the forum and its linked to the way the Eletrical thermostat operates and controlling emissions, in order words that's how it is!

I have just spoken to the Service dept of my local dealer and he says that the Mokka system only sends a signal to the guage when the temperature is up to full working temp, now assuming thats true that's a strange departure from the norm. But it seems to make sense since the heater works ok, and if you watch the guage it suddenly climbs to normal position.

Looks like I'll need my fleecy thermals until this cold spell is over

No problem if you have the S.E. heated seats and steering wheel are fantastic, new about this from my Insignia especially with leather seats you need a warming in certain areas.Seriously the Insignia was the same and my friends Zaffira Tourer isalso slow to heat up I was told the samewith the Insignia the electrical thermostat is in control but these can be slow to react in warmer weather you wont even notice it you willl be turning on the climate control and not care about it.

My Buick Encore has a 1.4 turbo 4 cyl gas engine, and it take a long time to heat up if it is cold outside. It is very frustrating. Even if I start it and let it run a while, doesn't seem to make much difference. It heats up faster if it is running at highway speed. Even then I noticed it goes 3 miles before the needle even starts to move off of cold.

I have a 1.7 colddiesel turbo and I think that takes even longer. The winter here has not been bad this year so not too much of a problem.

My diesel seems to take ages, so use the heated seats and steering wheel much more than expected.

As you will see from other threads I changed my car.
The heater in my new car (63 plate) heatsup in about 2 mins of engine running, totally different to my 62 plate, this would suggest to me that they have either put a mod in or there is a problem with some heaters which they are not admitting to.
