Toyota IQ3 1.33cc 2011 CVT Transmission questions.
By Charis IQ3
Hello there guys am a bit new to this site so please don't be hard on me if i posted in the wrong place. I just bought a Toyota IQ3 2011 1.33cc and my question is about its CVT transmission where i would like to know from you if switching through D and S(engine braking) while moving hurts the gearbox. Would it be better to keep one of this transmission speeds without switching through them? I would also like to ask on how to check the transmission oil. I read all the manual twice but non of my questions where answered. I might be missing something here.
Thanks in advance for the replies.
Got A 2008 1.8 Avensis Tr Petrol Toyota History
So I upgraded to a 2008 1.8 petrol manual estate. I have to say I have had it 2 days and I have fallen in love with it. I used to own a 1.8 2000 vvti. I also have to say that I had started hating toyota for building an oil burner. I hated them. But I would like to think that now they have wooed me once again. What a serene and smooth drive. The pick up and suspension both a world away from other makes. Driver position is very good too.
Its currently giving me 45mpg average. I drive mostly long routes, going to mums in a different town etc along a217.
One thing is that for every 1.8 tr spec that I saw on auto trader, it said it had cruise control. I was thinking that wow I have got the full package. When I got there to see the car in person. da da da. No cruise control. I was a bit upset but having test driven this car, I said to myself whats a cruise control when the car is so amazing. Anyways, been reading up and also found that I cant get this added to my car as ECU doesnt support this. Anyways its not a show stopper.
One more thing, its got is TRC and VSC which i like. Hand brake is good old school lever ones(i despise epb. SORRY KONRAD).
SO JUST WONDERING WHEN CHANGING BRAKES IF I HAVE TO BE VARY OF ANYTHING. I.E. NOT TO DISTURB VSC AND TRC.
Any help is much appreciated.

2005 Corolla 1.4 Vvti Hatchback Headlight Condensation
Hi there I've got loads of condensation starting to come in my headlights in the inside and also the headlights have lots of haziness on the inside as well? So visibility is greatly reduced, need to get it sorted asap. Originally thought the haziness was on the outside and after days of watching different cleaning videos realised it was on the inside of the unit aha. Any help welcome!
