  1. Update: the car has been fixed, replaced the clutch and dmf. The mechanic said that the fingers (I assume this is the pressure plate) on the clutch was very worn, meaning that the car was being driven with the clutch being ridden (foot left on clutch pedal while being driven). Ps: it wasn't me as this is really bad practice, It was the first owner! Lesson here- Don't rest your FOOT on the CLUTCH PEDAL while driving!!!!! I'm going to test the car and get pics of the old clutch and post it up here. Cheers Leon

  2. To be honest, they are a bit of a bitch to get at (see the manual!) but once in there behind the units, they are easy enough if a bit stiff at first (quarter turn anti-clockwise). The new bulbs have improved them no end. Before, as you have already mentioned, they were completely useless. Now, they actually augment the spread of the dip beam in front of the car when on.

  3. I haven't properly checked this on the Auris, but on other cars (e.g. VW), if you exceed the cruise control speed on the throttle for over a set time (5 minutes?), then the cruise disengages. Also, if the car drops below 25 mph on cruise then it will disengage it. It seems to vary by make and model as to what a 'dab' on the increase control does; on the Auris it is a small increase, VW is the same, the Mazda we had, incremented the speed by 1 mph, so, say, 5 quick control presses would gradually bring the speed up by exactly 5mph.

  4. I'll check next time I can. Last time I was playing with it, it seemed to disable. I needed to click Resume to get it going again, but I'm a complete newbie about CC as it's the first car I've owned with it, despite driving since 1970. Mick.

  5. Sorry for quoting you. I understand the cruise control is disengaged when the clutch is operated to prevent the cruise from increasing engine revs if the car slows. similarly it is linked to brake pedal operation. Perhaps someone with a manual with cruise could clarify?

  7. It seems that most of us are happy with our Avensis Tourers, more so if they are the petrol version. In buying them we obviously ignored the negative views of the motoring journalists. Most of them describe the Avensis as a dull drive, with forgettable styling, a dreary interior and rarely award more than 3 points out of 5. We know better. They don't realise that some people put more importance into the practicality and reliability of their vehicles and that their priorities in buying are value for money, spaciousness and refinement.

  8. One thing I've learnt during my car ownership journey is that newer isn't always better. Toyota are apparently on a bit of a cost cutting trip and one thing that suffers is the fit and finish. My 16 plate Auris has at least 4 different rattles which can only be explained by cost cutting. I test drove a 65 plate pre facelift Auris with higher mileage and it was solid as a rock. I also had a pleasure of driving 17 plate Avensis and it also rattled like crazy.
