Many members don't have a problem, and others do. Vauxhall put it down to your Driving Style. I've had it happen once in 14 months. It hasn't put me off the car, it's great.

Not a problem for me and my cars coming up to 2 years old. Remember most people only go on car forums to have a moan and find out if other owners have the same issues. Would also be interesting to know if cars registered in the last 6 months are still affected. Some of the latest reports maybe cars that have been returned and bought second hand so the problem has never been fixed Edited by: Big Mac

I would advise your wife should take the 1.7d manual on an extended test drive (hours) which should convince her one way or the other. Have you also considered the mileage your wife would cover per year? If it's low with short journeys then a problem could be with the DPF. You mentioned the 1.4t auto. which my wife has found both excellent, smooth, quiet, very responsive and no problems. The choice is her's.

It's happened to me a few times. It's when I don't change down in time when I've changed my mind at the last minute and I've had to cut speed rapidly, hence driving style.in these situations I've been slowing down I.e braking so it cutting out has been an inconvenience rather than a danger. It never happens otherwise. It is for me a minor issue and I love the car despite this. Hope that helps!

It happened a couple of times in the first week to my wife and myself when we got the car ( Nov 2014 ) but i understand the problem with the cutting out is simply the AUTO STOP activating due to the revs being to low, and with diesels being lower revving than petrol vehicles they are more prone to the AUTO-STOP activating.But since the first week we have never had it happen again, because i suppose we have adapted our driving style to suit the car. My wife drives the Mokka 90% of the time and she loves it to bits
and so do i when i get the chance.

Has this ever happened to anyone when they have had the AUTO-STOP turned off ????

I never have it on so yes it does happen whether it's on or off..My only advice is change down early as I do now or knock it out of gear and the problem has not happened since. The car will probably still be going this year though not down to that problem

My diesel Meriva did this too albeit a little less easily so again down to low revs.

After 2 years and 14000 miles mine still does it every couple of weeks or so. One day it will cause a serious accident. It had its second service last month so any updates should have been added but it still does it just the same. Out of interest can any one name another car manufacturer that states you must change your driving style to drive their cars safely?????? Utter rubbish Vauxhall!!!!!!!

I have had my Mokka 4 months and never had cutting out problems.
I agree with Tosher regarding Vx comments blaming driving style for engine cut out.--Rubbish!
Their is obviously a fault on some of the Mokkas causing the problem.
It beggars belief that some Moka owners accept VX explanation.
VX will know there is a fault but would not and could not addmit to it because of possible Litigation.They may or may not even know what the fault is.

What impact would addmision of a major fault have on new car sales !

Nor does mine cut out now as I change down early, the wife has never had it cut out as she drives the driving school way, so it does make a difference, point being, it shouldn't!

Some owners do drive using either old style, new style, boy racer style and stil have the problem of cutting out.So it makes no difference to them.
The only point that matters is that some Mokkas are faulty and should be rectied urgently by VX before some one has a nasty accident.
