  1. Hello Derek - welcome to Toyota Owners Club. Although not quite the same, I downsized last year from running an Auris sized car, to an Aygo. We run two cars, and basically didn't need two cars of the size we had. No regrets. We use the larger car for when we go on holiday, longer runs, etc, and the Aygo for knocking around. Need to accept that some things won't be as good - refinement, etc - but they can be countered by other things - economy, nimbleness, etc.
  2. Yes - you should be able to make the changes. Go into your profile by clicking on your username. In the top toolbar that shows your username, content count, joined and days won, at the top right hand corner there is a button 'Edit Profile'. Click on this and make whatever changes you wish. To include two models, you can use my example - Toyota Model: 2015 Hyundai i20 1.4SE & 2016 Toyota Aygo X-Play with X-Touch Toyota Year: 2016
  3. The OP has a petrol Auris - so the service intervals are 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
  4. Leeway on a service is 1 month or 1,000 miles - so a service done at 10,100 is OK. Do you need to edit your profile to include the Auris?
  5. The main point of having a service plan is that you're fixing the costs to those applicable at the time the plan is taken out. So, for example, if the service costs are increased the year after taking out the plan, that is where the saving can come in. Not sure where people stand who took out a plan before the schedule revisions - presumably they have the service done according to the previous schedule.
  6. As per the disclaimer at the bottom of each page on Toyota Owners Club, we are not associated with Toyota. I would suggest you contact Toyota customer services and pose the question -
  7. This must provide a 'Curiously Strong' solution to the issue .....
  8. Baxk in 2016 when Toyota increased the costs of the Fixed Price Servicing and revised the service schedules, the changes were quite well covered on the forums: The revised service schedules are available to download from the following: The changes include include some of what were service options under the old schedules, within the revised schedules.
  9. The Auris has had petrol (non hybrid) CVT's since December 2012, so they cannot be that unusual. Plus other models have combined petrol engines and CVT's - eg. IQ since 2009, and Yaris since 2011.
  10. Probably be covered under the three year paintwork and surface rust warranty, rather than the 12 year anti corrosion and perforation warranty.

  12. The Auris doesn't have a service reminder. As I said previously Toyota service intervals are every 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever occurs first. The Intermediate service is done at year 1, 3, 5, etc The Full service is done at year 2, 4, etc. The Full+ service includes additional service items not done under either the Intermediate of Full. The frequency of the Full+ depends on the model. For example spark plugs are due to be changed at 6 years or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first; coolant is due to be replaced at 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Replacement of these are covered in the Full+. The following web page includes downloadable pdf's which state what each of the service levels include - Without knowing which services the car has had to date, whether it was serviced on the time basis or the mileage basis, or whether up to October 2015 it had a Toyota service history, it is difficult to say which service this vehicle should be due now. I would say that the hybrid battery warranty, as with the new car warranty (5 years/100,000 miles) would be subject to the vehicle being serviced in accordance with Toyota's requirements - ie every 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever occurs first. The hybrid health check extends the hybrid battery warranty, once the original hybrid battery warranty has expired. So in your case, as the vehicle has an 8 year/100,000 miles hybrid battery warranty, the hybrid health check won't extend the hybrid battery warranty until either the 8 years or 100,000 mile limit has been exceeded. Must confess that on an annual mileage of only 2,000, I would imagine fuel savings would be fairly minimal.
  13. Lindop are one of Toyota Owners Club's sponsors and have been supplying chip kits for as variety of models for a number of years - Should be plenty of positive feedback on the kits in general on the forums - Rav4, Auris, Avensis, Verso, etc - and a forum search should give you an insight.
  14. Hello Kevin - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  15. You will need to contact and ask the question
