  1. Thanks, I would be fine if was a couple of hours, but days I can't manage without my car. I will call them back sometime next week.
  2. I had my car in for service at local dealer last week. They left a note saying it will be needed in for a VIN sticker recall. They phoned me this morning and said when can it be booked in. I said could it be done if I leave it with them and I shop in town while it's done but they said no they would need it a couple of days. I can't be without my car that long. Last week I cycled to work in the rain when it was being serviced. Is it life and death getting this done.
  3. I haven't yet. I didn't really know where to start looking tbh but I can get some ideas now. Thanks
  4. I have just bought a 2018 Aygo. I used to have a Yaris and could fit my bike and sons bike in the car with seats down. I know the Aygo is a lot smaller so wondered if there was an option of a bike rack. Thanks
  5. I had the pollen filter changed. £20 inc vat and labour, Not had much chance to test yet. But will update when i have. Old filter does look a bit mucky.
  6. I have booked it in at local garage to get the filter done tomorrow morning, it has never been changed so that defo needs doing. Booked it at toyota on friday for its intermediate service. So if problem not solved they can check it out on friday. thank you for all the help. 😉
  7. The car is nearly 3.5 years old. I think the last time it was serviced on its full service i remember them saying something about the pollen filter but u said to leave it for time being. On my notes it says £49 pollen so presume that is what they mean. i will get it booked in for service and get the pollen filter changed
  8. Yes it does. I suppose i should maybe get it serviced. Its due one soon so maybe thats something. Or is that something that is easy to do yourself
  9. Yes it does. I suppose i should maybe get it serviced. Its due one soon so maybe thats something.
  10. I did try switching the recirculation and fresh air to see if it was stuck. But I always have it on fresh air. I did try putting air con on and turned temp down as that is what I do in summer. Didn't help. But didn't try hot air and air con. Will give that a try. Just seems odd that only be en troubling me recently.
  11. I have noticed the last few times I have driven in my car at night that my windows are not demisting properly. Front windscreen demists a bit but not the full windscreen. That is with full fan on. My drivers and passenger windows were not clearing and rear windscreen cleared a little bit but not fully. It seems to work a bit but not enough. Any thoughts Thanks
  12. But he's an Audi driver .... what is the difference between toyota and audi drivers, are we a different league. I had been given flowers when I had bought my last 2 yaris cars, so i thought it was something that has stopped. Its ok, not bothered really. Prefer the fuel anyday.
  13. Interesting, I didn't think about it when I picked it up, but when hubby got home he said, "did u not get any flowers, I did with my audi and I'm a bloke", it made me smile but I just thought I had from the previous 2 dealers. I know dealers are infamous for giving u the car with no fuel so part of my deal breaker was first free service and half a tank of fuel. Didn't get an air freshner. I suppose if I had taken the guard x protection then the pollen would have just wiped off, but I wasn't going spend £350 on scotch guard and some wax protector. I love my new car, just was an after thought. Happy with my Christmas present :)
  14. Is a bit petty but I have just bought a new car from a main dealer and was a little bit disappointed that there were no flowers. I have bought Toyota cars from other dealers and always hot a lovely bunch of flowers. Are times hard for the dealers now that they don't do that little touch. Audi and Ford still manage it.
  15. I have a yaris and had a letter about window. I assumed this was non urgent so was waiting for futher instruction. i am now worried it maybe needed for this other recall problem. I need my car every day so am reluctant to be without my car. I can't imagine they have enough courtesy cars available. How are we to be compensated for such inconvenience.
  16. thanks good website, my yaris is march 2009 so it is the newest model. They havent got any bumpers on the website but i will keep looking and i have email them to check. I am not rushing to get it replaced I will wait until i can get one thanks i feel a lot better knowing that i wont have to pay a fortune
  17. Basically, what it says in the title. I drove over a stump and have crunched my front bumper. I could do with knowing the part code. Can anyone recommend parts companies so I can get a replacemnet one. Ideally if it is the east midlands area that would be helpful. I preume to buy new it will be quite costly thanks
  18. :) i have just bought a yaris spirit and would like to know where I can get some toyota car mats from as the dealer has not included them( i haggled over the price) Thanks Louise
