  1. This YouTube video explains the Toyota hybrid transmission, or Power Split Device as it's known, quite nicely: Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  2. I've had a metal piece fitted on my Lexus CT200h by a local independent that serves a lot of the Prius taxis in London, it cost me £70. Not sure how sturdy or resilient it may be against an angle grinder but my hope is that the added time it would take to cut an appropriate hole through it might dissuade any thieves. There are options out there other than the main dealer rip off ... Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  3. I remember reading in one of the Toyota brochures that they introduced under trays for the hybrid version (which came out in 2010), purely for fuel efficiency reasons. It reduces drag and keeps the engine warmer. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks Auristi! Really helped me out as a new Auris in the family was having the same problem. Your guide worked a treat!

    16 inch

    I had the 17 inch wheels on mine as well but successfully had 16s fitted. I bought a genuine Toyota set of 16 inch wheels that are fitted to the Auris and did a straight swap. No problems. Didn't bother with insurance malarkey considering these are standard on the lower spec'd version of the Auris, so it's not technically an 'aftermarket' set of wheels as my car could have just as easily had them on at the factory Cost me £300 for a used (but unscratched) set on eBay. I then flogged mine on gumtree for slightly more.
  6. In my experience, that is how parking sensors can behave in the rain, especially if they are dirty. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. Welcome! The car is looking good, I hope it gives you many years of hassle free motoring! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Toyota Auris

    It does have the camera! It comes up on the left part of the rear view mirror. This is standard on the t-spirit spec. The parking sensors were optional extras. Looks like an excellent car to me with only 8000 miles on the clock. I've had my 60 plate Auris HSD for just over a year and it's an excellent car. Only downside with this specific model is the relatively tiny boot. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. I have to say I am in total agreement, the price hike is quite ridiculous in my opinion. I was thankfully lucky enough to have bought a service plan this year, just prior to the hike, which incluides three services as well as MOTs. All in, this amounts to £175 a year for the next three years. It works out cheaper overall and with the added benefit of spreading the cost. You should call around to different dealers (prefereably from different operators - Jemca, Hills etc.) and ask for a quote for a service plan. Enquire as to what is included as well, some include brake fluid and AC service etc.
  10. Have had my 2010 for a year now, no issues so far. MPG although nowhere near the quoted figures, still very good. Did change out the 17 inch wheels for 16s though, as I found them to give quite a harsh ride. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  12. Not sure I understand where the negatives about the reversing camera are coming from! As an owner of a 2010 Auris Hybrid and a 2007 Prius, both of which have reversing cameras, they are a million times better than sensors in my experience. Even without washing my car for a good three months or so, the camera is perfectly useable and I can't say I've even noticed any difference with its quality after a car wash. The camera allows reversing with much greater awareness of what's behind you than any sensor could provide. Slender objects (bollards for example) are usually completely missed unless they happen to be in alignment with one of the sensors, this is never a problem with the camera!

  14. Actual reply from the link in the previous post which seems to explain the confusion: 'What generally happens at this type of junction in Cheshire is the green for straight on and the green arrow come on together, with the traffic in the opposite direction being held. Then after a few seconds the green arrow goes off (there's no red) and the lights in the opposing direction go green and it becomes a normal two way junction. So he's seen the green arrow but not realised it's gone off. Discovery driver has seen green his side and decided to just drive through - he may not have been stopped at the lights, it's not that busy there, so he could have anticipated the green and been going at some speed. There's a junction I go straight through quite often in Merseyside where traffic is turning right in front of you and your light goes green but even if you move forward there's no way scousers are going to stop. So it's prudent to pause a few seconds until they're out of the way.' Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. So, did you get your car fixed in the end Lewis?
