  1. If you took it to the dealer they would have changed the suspension and the tyres.

  2. Driving the other day, there was a distinct rattle jiggle knocking from the rear RH side. Noticeable going over bumps and road unevenness. I was worried about a suspension linkage and was considering taking the car to our local independent garage for them to take a look on the rack. Yesterday, I washed the car, and when hosing it down, and as usual I hosed out the rear wheel arches, especially the "mud trap" forward of the rear wheels. I then found the source of the rattle jiggle knocking. It was a piece of rough stone about the size of a marble or a Malteser! 🤣 Just thought I'd share this with the Yaris community, as maybe someone else may have the issue. Mick.

  3. Yes Alternator, I meant to say "like an alternator would", nevermind! I took the car into the dealers for their quick look and between several hours and several discussions with the mechanic, they haven't got a clue. I do not recommend lunch of tea and biscuits! They provide sandwiches at the Lexus garage. Ah you have left the lights on. No! Ah the dash cam is draining the battery. No the usb turns off with the ignition. I ran it for two years in the Prius gen4. Ah this is a different car. It still turns off. I don't think.so. I checked. No it has residual voltage on it still. No I checked with a voltmeter. It doesn't charge with the mains charger. Yes it does I have checked. When you ran the aircon/heater it drains the battery in the morning, the charger turns off when it's fully charged. No the mains charger turns back on when you do that, and charges the 12v battery as well. I'll check current leakage. Fine. There is 500mA drain on the battery. That does not explain how it was completely flat overnight, I have left interior lights on overnight on other cars without adverse effects. Must be a faulty battery. What about the 500mA drain. We are replacing the battery, next week fine? If I must. While we are at it. The Phone charger does not work. Ah you need a special phone for that. Yes I have one. Ah what model though.Just listen it does not work, it will not turn on. Please don't hit your head against the wall. LOOK the phone worked fine in the last car. Ah we will have a look. Further installments next week., if I'm not had up for GBH!

  4. I found from WeberAuto Youtube series (geat by the way) that EV mode kicks out in that speed because of MG1 rpm is limiting it(if i remember correctly). In EV mode MG1 is doing hard work by revving so that ICE does not need to turn at all. edit: but yeah, this is not reason why ev mode kicks out, you can still drive ev mode more higher speeds 🤔

  5. I think it might be the safety camera warning. Can be turned off. If you have the map showing, look for a slightly fuzzy camera-ish symbol in the bottom right corner, and there will also be symbols on the map itself. If you don't have the map showing, as far as I remember there's no warning message to tell you why it's beeping. PS Just spotted this thread in Priuschat: https://priuschat.com/threads/uk-owners-speed-camera-alerts-after-update.175217/

  6. Craggle was right. Talking to the Toyota Service Manager he confirmed that the clutch pedal needs to be right down to the floor - I.e. more than required to change gear. Apparently it can be adjusted, but now I know I just always floor the pedal completely - every time. So problem resolved.
