Folk must really be hammering their cars just before switching them off to have the brakes hot enough that they contract so much once parked.

Just enjoy it.

A lot of people don't have any problems. A few do, as with any car. Not familiar with the diesel variant but my 1.33TR is sweet as a nut!

i have a 2007 auris and i am happy with it so far, it has a knocking sound when you turn the steering when parking but this will be sorted under warranty, otherwise its trouble free.

nice drive on the motorway with decent MPG.

Welcome to the Auris ownership club!

Try not to worry about faults you read on forums. If you panicked about every fault ever written about a car on a forum, you would never buy ANY car! People rarely come on forums to brag about how trouble free their cars are, they come here for a solution to a problem and try to resolve common issues.

As for the two problems you have mentioned, my 2008 Auris has not had any Handbrake issues, and the boot is bone dry.

Use the info on here to look for faults that others have reported, but don't automatically assume your car will have them, or it will ruin your enjoyment before it begins.

As for the Ipod intergration, i'm not sure if it can be done (depends on your standard headunit i think) but i found the standard head unit to be pretty poor for sound quality and volume, so i replaced mine with a Bluetooth and Ipod compatible Alpine head unit, and the difference is night and day. Might be worth considering a change if the Ipod is important to you and the sound quality isn't what you hoped for.

Good luck with the new car, if its anything like mine you should find it to be a great little car.

No probs with handbrake or wet boot here with ours (2008 Diesel) :)

I was wondering what folk were on about saying the sound quality was crap until the weekend. I drove a SR180 with the standard stereo and yes it is really crap, my T180 has the satnav option which has great sound.

we had the sat nav in our old T180 and will say the sound was good but the CRZ has a very small factory fitted sub and in my opinion this does make a lot of difference and was what was missing along with USB input, otherwise its a good setup and looks smart as well.

Were have a accord tourer which has the sub fitted aswell, as long as you dont push them too hard it sounds alright

Congrats getting the car. FYI, 2008 (57 plate) SR180, no handbrake issues, boot wetness was my fault I'm afraid but!!! anyone I've heard complaining of it has had it fixed at their dealer, free up till now, in all but one case I read of. Mine is booked in on the 1st March, I'm confident they'll fix it so it's not a massive issue.

Dave.
