Ipsum

Recommended Posts

I do.

I have just joined this forum.

Out of curiosity, can you tell me a little bit more about this club.

I am currently a Singapore Toyota Owner's Club member.

Hope to see more discussions here on MPVs :rolleyes:

I have a Toyota Ipsum. I bought it a week ago. It is a Japanese import into New Zealand. First registered in Japan in 1998. I think the model was called a "Picnic" in England.

Anybody know how I could get hold of an owners handbook as these MPV's weren't sold new in NZ

Am sure Steve will answer this question a lot better than I can but I'll give it a go (no laughing in the back row please :blink: )

Toyota Owner's Club (TOC) is an online community for anybody who loves the Toyota Brand, a place to share information and knowledge about various aspects of the vehicles and enjoy discussions on any aspect with like-minded people.

With a large following in the UK a number of offers to Gold Members (not yet launched) will be available to UK residents and a number of meets arranged each year with special offers into various locations such as the Heritage Motor Museum this weekend.

General Registration is free for anybody who would like to become a member and enjoy using the site, Gold Membership will be offered for a small premium and entitle Gold Members to discounts at places such as Toyota Dealerships...

Hope that helps.....

How common is the Ipsum/Picnic in the UK. I'd never noticed them here in NZ until about 3 weeks ago. There seem to be only about 5 for sale around Christchurch and I've only seen 2 others driving around. All imports.

I own a Ipsum 240E, it was imported from Japan to Singapore. The Toyota agent in Singapore does not have the 2.4L version.

I have the Japanese version of the car manual but I am looking for the English version. Previously I had the 2.0L Ipsum but decided to change to the new 2.4L.

Surprisingly, this big cc has better fuel economy than the 2.0L version

Hi Frans

Does the 240E have the same body shape as your 2 litre? Ipsums never came into NZ new. Toyota are now, however, bringing in the Avensis Verso (just called Avensis here) which has the new body shape.

Anybody out there has the owners manual for this model?

What type of Automatic transmission fluid is best for this model??

I got one too, a direct imported one and so it is Ipsum, 99' made and you can goto my home page to take a look on its pictures. I'd collected some information about this car from various web site too.

I've done some diy after I bought this car and the owner's manual or repair manual for it is hard to find. I've got a couple pages of the mauanl in pdf format (janpanese only) and they're about the removal of the rear-air cond.

Nice to talk to all the ipsum/picnic owner here.

:group-cuddles: I've just received my IPSUM 240u & I must say that Toyota car ride quality have been increased a lot. It give me some luxury car feeling, so quiet, so smooth.... quite nice. The car also come with electronic adjustable supsension, side and rear camera, electric seat....etc.

The worst is the only Japanese manual... :ffs:

:rolleyes: Have just purchased a 2.2 diesel automatic Ipsum 1998 haveing had a picnic previously. There are a few differences however, noteabley the third row seats are a bench not individual seats and dont seem to be removeable unlike the picnic's individual seats?????? Am I missing something obvious? Needless to say I dont have a handbook/manual so anyone with any advice I would be grateful to hear from you. Does anyone know if an english handbook was ever produced for the Ipsum?

Kind Regards

Tigi

Hi Ipsumers out there,

Just purchased a 240e Ipsum, its a direct import from Japan into Singapore. Found something strange. When I open the boot, the central lock gets activated and locked up the whole car. I can still open the boot though. Is this a feature or do you think there is something wrong with my remote alarm system?

My 2004 Ipsum 240e vibrates whenever I stop at the traffic. It is annoying. Anyone has similar experience?
