    Will my Toyota hybrid be okay if I don’t drive it for a long time?

    As the UK government has instructed the nation to stay at home and only venture out for specific, essential reasons in light of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation, many of us are being encouraged to park our cars if we can. Some owners of Toyota hybrids might be wondering what will happen to their car during long periods without use, particularly when it comes to the level of charge in the batteries. The reassuring news is that no difficult car maintenance is necessary. However, there are

  • Will Toyota ever put their hybrid drivetrain in the Aygo X?

    My partner is likely to change her car in the next 12/18 months and is interested in an Aygo X. It will certainly be an auto transmission and I believe that a model with HSD would be a perfect town car, much more so than the Yaris as I believe it has better visibility (this is, so far, only an observation from sitting in an Aygo X in the showroom- I have also driven several Yaris Hybrids as courtesy cars) Is this likely to happen?? I must say from my own standpoint I really like the 'l

    Boot Lid Lock Failed

    Hi, guys. 58 reg Aygo. Rear boot lid lock problem. Cannot open. Can see the solenoid actuate but doesn't move the cam to unlock position. See attached movie, please. When using the remote to unlock the solenoid actuated for maybe half a second and moves about an inch or so. Any clues as to how I might solve this? Thanks, Pete 20220809_122010.mp4

    Third wheel bearing is broken, Aygo 2014

    My wifes Aygo with 65.000 miles on the clock has broken it's third wheel bearing. Are they really that bad or cheap made, so they just dont last? I've done so many miles in my previous cars, but never had to replace wheel bearings. I really thought that the gearbox was starting to wear down. It was a kind of screaming, high pitch grinding noise, so I really thought that a heavy bill was waiting.
