Avensis 2018 DAB issues

Recommended Posts

I have recently upgraded from a 14 plate Avensis to a 18 plate Avensis and I have noticed a significate reduction in DAB signal - i can hardly go 5-10 miles without the radio signal cutting out 3 or 4 times. I had it checked out at the local Toyota Garage and their response was 'yeah, its not as good as the old verion' Amazing...

has anyone else noticed this??

 

thanks

I've gone from a 2014 Avensis Business Edition to a 2017 Avensis Design.

Not noticed any difference in lack of sensivity though. There's a corner near my road on which my old Avensis always momentarily lost the signal for 'Absolute 80's'. The newer Avensis does just the same. 

Are you losing the signal on your new car that was satisfactory on your old car or is it just being a pain?

Try a retune, if you haven't done one lately. There's a small chance it can help. My aftermarket DAB on my 2007 goes barmy if I have the Dashcam plugged in near it or if I use the "wrong" power adapter. You could have it worse, lol.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
