  1. Just received the following reply from Toyota GB which is reassuring. Thank you for your email, I completely understand your concerns surrounding this issue, I hope I am able to offer some reassurance in this email. As the situation with Covid-19 develops and changes daily, we understand that customers are now going to struggle to keep up with the advised service schedule on their cars, in this instance there will be flexibility and we will aim to support our customers. Whilst a delayed service will not directly invalidate your warranty, we advise that when normal business resumes you aim to make a booking for your service at your earliest convenience. You can book your service by getting in touch with your local Toyota Centre,
  2. Thanks for the reply RAV has only done 17500 miles so not worried about the mileage. Whether the country will be back on its feet in a month who knows. Couple of RAVs ago was caught up in the Diesel engine problems. Had reconditioned then replacement engine thankfully paid by Toyota as full service history hence my slight paranoia. Keith
  3. RAV Hybrid was due its 2 year service today. In view of the travel restrictions decided to contact the garage yesterday (RRG Toyota Silsden) to see if they were still working. Government advise said garages could stay open. Answering machine only saying everything shut including service department ‘ If you need MOT contact DVLA’ Does anyone know if Toyota have relaxed the service timings during this difficult period. Have emailed Toyota and awaiting a reply Thanks
  4. Although it’s about the Prius I’ve found Graham’s Toyota Prius website explains how the hybrid system works. The link understanding your Prius takes you to all the information about the power split device which is as you said is a planetary gear. I thought the hybrid RAV had a stepped CVT till till reading this.
  5. A lot of post about it on the USA RAV forum.
  6. Is it the lane departure warning buzzer? I normally have mine switched off but it seems to reset itself to on at times.
  7. That’s explains the dead link. The post is the same. Assume they changed the link name as its the 2020 CHR
  8. Worked this morning. Try.
  9. Details of the new C-HR multimedia now on the Toyota blog.
  10. With my hybrid RAV 2018 with radar cruise control it changes with 5 mph increments. With cruise control set to non radar ( by pushing the on button for 3 secs) it changes by 1mph. Agree 5mph increments are too large.
  11. Try Got bars last year for my 2018 RAV. Had a quick look and the 2019 RAV is listed. I think the Toyota bars are Thule.

    Rebadging the RAV4

    Thanks. Presumably it will be like the Aygo. Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108.
  13. Took the wife’s Suzuki Swift in for service today. Was talking to the salesman who sold her the car and in conversation mentioned I had a hybrid RAV4. Surprised when he said the new Suzuki Grand Vitara is going to be a rebadged RAV4 hybrid. Googling appears to confirm this. Wonder how it will compare on trim and price?
