  1. I've a 2012 rav 4 2AD with 33,429 miles. It has used 1.5 litres of oil in 3923 miles since last oil service @ RRG Huddersfield. This I thought was high so went along to Vantage Toyota @ Wakefield. On speaking to the service desk was told that Toyota had told them 1 litre - 1000 miles was acceptable. The chap did say they had pointed out to Toyota that for the uneducated among us there was the possibility it would run dry between the 12 monthly services. My last rav an 06 plate 2 AD didn't use a drop as such between services, what gives and what's the forum thoughts on this?

  3. Hi chaps only me again. Rang Adrian flux yesterday about the omission of my policy on motor insurance data base. Spoke to 2 pin heads who didn't seem to see the problem as she said "it can take 5 days". My answer to that was Motor insurance bureau who administers MID says if your policy doesn't appear contact your insurance IMMEADIATLY . In another section of their page it says details can be sorted in hours and not as the pin heads said days. However my gripe with Adrian Flux is this system has been in place since 2003 and in those 11 years no other insurance company has let me down like this. As I sarcastly asked does that mean all Adrian Flux policy holders after me are presently not on MID awaiting some sort of backlog to clear. Basically I think they're LIARS and it's simply a case of another pin head hasn't uploaded the data. I did get a cheaper quote alsewhere but Flux matched the price to keep my business. I'd hate to have to make a claim if this is how they respond and I'll certainly think twice about renewing with them next year. In point to some replys why should we as motorists have to carry a heap of printed off evidence in the back of the car to make up for government cost cutting ref' tax discs and bungling idiots that work for insurance companys. We pay our money and they're supposed to provide a service. Happy Christmas everybody and hopefully a happy new year.
  4. Hi chaps. Thought I'd share my pain ref' Adrian Flux. Just starting my second year with Adrian Flux so received Certificate on Friday 12th Dec', premium £315 was taken from bank on Monday 15th Dec' and my renewal was 17th Dec @ 00:00 hours. So we had the Cert' they had their money so all should of been well. Imagine my surprise when this morning Sun 21st Dec I was followed into a retail park in Halifax by a Police BMW X5 who preceded to block me off when I'd pulled into a space. Flashed his headlights at me and beckoned me over. Told me to take a seat in the rear which left all the other shoppers sniggering as I must be a master criminal. He then informed me that my vehicle had no insurance to which I replied I had a copy in my owners pack in the car. I got that and showed him and he showed me his dash computer showing my vehicle reg had no valid insurance. He said Adrian Flux had not registered the policy with MID which is the insurance data base the police APNR system uses. He then said I should contact Flux and not drive the car as I wasn't legally insured at that time and the car could be impounded. As you can imagine I went straight home and parked up for the day. So beware fellow club members and it's worth checking on your renewal day @ askMID that your policy has been registered as you can't rely on the idiots you pay your hard earned cash to to do it. Thanks Adrian Flux
  5. Lindops economy chip box is excellent. Makes the RAV pick up a lot faster but it's not a sports car. Also pulls like a train up the huge hills we have round here. Many thanks Kingo for reproggramme, new cable and a load of patience.

  6. Want to post a personal thank you to Kingo
