Hey all!

Just joined this forum in the hopes of finding some more out about one of my cars!

It's a FunCarGo - and a useful little thing! Beaten up and abused, but has the Yaris T-Sport engine coupled to an automatic gearbox and 4wd oddly!!!

Haven't seen any others and hoping that there are more out there!

Other Toyota's are 

- 1995 FJ80 Landcruiser 4.5 petrol auto

- 1995 Landcruiser Prado 3L TD auto

- 1995 Toyota Supra TT auto

And of course the beloved FunCarGo which is a 2001 auto!

(Lots of autos!)

Will try to upload some photos of all the cars!

Thanks 🙂

Wait *what*?!!? :eek: 

You could get a Yaris Verso (The Euro-name of the Funcargo) in AWD with the T-Sport engine!?!?!? :eek: 

I ... just... that's....  :jawdrop:...bonkers... I can't... :blowup:

Damnit why are the JDM versions are always so much better than the export versions!? :crybaby:

Hi!

Yep - am UK based and this was imported at some point from Japan!

Have a Yaris Verso too - my go to car which has never let me down, so when I saw the FunCargo thought it was a no brainer really!

Hope to build it back up to a decent condition and keep it for when the snow hits! With the loading space in the back, am sure it will always be a useful car to keep around!

Only other issue I have is the CO2 emissions on the logbook is currently '0', which I need to get in touch with Toyota about to start the process of correction...

Has anyone gone through anything similar here?

Oooh does that mean you can register it as zero-emissions? :laugh:

That's a cool car tho', like the great great great great grandad of the GR4 :laugh:

Thanks!

You would think zero emissions would be a good thing! Apparently it actually defaults to the highest CO2 rating as a result instead 😅.

Once I work it out, it should be much cheaper to tax/park/drive in London!

Hi Ads.

Welcome. I hope you get your emissions sorted out before Khan changes the London emission regulations again 😀

Too right.

All these cars are bitten by the ULEZ, so likely only the FunCargo that has a chance to survive...

Very sad about the prospect of letting them all go, but might just mean moving onto the Yaris GR..

Welcome to the forum and what a great selection of cars, a real shame if you have to let any of them go.  Enjoy the forum.

Welcome to the club.

I'd have though that one of the Land Cruisers would have been the go-to in when the snow hits!

Hello Ads - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.

As regards VED, think grey imports over 10 years old are taxed at a flat rate.

Thank you Frosty,

Any ideas how I can find out more?

Will search online in the meantime.

Hi all,

Does anyone know if a 2000 UK Yaris Verso would comply with the ULEZ if a Certificate of conformity is purchased showing it has a Euro4 engine?

Same Q with a 2001 imported Verso?

Thanks in advance!

Should do but you might need to register it with them if you use the ULEZ checker and it says you have to pay

You can check it here:

https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/check-your-vehicle/

...and the well hidden ULEZ compliance registration page is here:
