Do Not Sell My Personal Information


my new car


Recommended Posts

As some of you guys know, i purchased a new corolla GR sport and with much regret have had issues that the dealer has not been able to rectify. i did try out the C-HR and although it drove well the instrument cluster was well under par I felt 

i am picking up my new Lexus ux premium edition next week because someone cancelled, and I am picking up theirs. The drive was excellent and at £35'000 not bad considering the car comes complete with bonnet matt and engine cover and in general a very sturdy heavy car with the doors and bonnet closing with a very gentle push. Comes with a sunroof and run flat tyres. Oh, well, let's see how this turns out? The colour is a bit unusual but well painted Terrane Khaki - metallic

Well done 👍 

You are lucky to have this colour is stunning and looks amazing I. Daylight or in the night. If it’s comes with dark brown leather seats it will be an excellent match. Good choice. Enjoy it.

Congratulations! Sounds wonderful, having been interested in one myself. Light or dark headlining?

Hmm, when i was looking the lighter colour, cream / ivory normally came with a light headlining .. but not always, hence the question.

If I paid any more, I would be up into the NK range. As i said above, this was a custom cancelled order with sunroof and fine leather and although the infotainment system is poor of which i only use the radio the overall space was very relaxing

I should add it would have been nice for Toyota to have found the fault with my corolla, but as so often the case today in the UK none skilled enough to be able to find out the answer. And if any of you ever get to speak with head office god forbid you'll understand why

Toyota customer services were convinced the Corolla Design had full cloth seats when I queried and said the website was wrong and needed to be changed. Surprise surprise mine came with the expected half synthetic leather.

So we can expect to hear more about the infotainment system then.

it's the 22 model with the joypad. As the lead time is now 6 plus months for back orders, they will come with a touch screen

Hi guys. i chose Lexus as the dealership is way superior to any other in my area Mercedes/Audi/ Range Rover BMW etc and hope that continues. The car itself so far is spot on, despite the infotainment system being the weakest link. It has Dunlop run flat tyres from Japan and has a sunroof and cream leather seating. All the things that caused me concern in the corolla like bonnet matt missing and wheel arches poorly executed along with no engine cover and metal to metal scraping noises in going in to my local garage for petrol don't apply in this new car as it has it all and for good measure it has felt mats in all the cup holders and storage bins
