  1. My wife is due to change her Auris this year. As TSS is now standard which of these features can be turned off and do they have to be turned off for every journey?
  2. If you have a look under the car you should see the rear motor which gives you AWD when needed.
  3. I wonder if it's dependent on which camera it is.

    RAV Hybrid

    When I park in the garage I don't apply the handbrake, I assume that's not possible with an EPB.

    RAV Hybrid

    Hi Alex I got a new Rav4 Hybrid 4WD last year. The eCVT gearbox is a dream with great linear acceleration. The majority of driving is done on 60 and 70 MPH A roads and motorways, very little town driving. I am getting an average of 42 MPG, brimming the tank at every fill and noting the mileage then entering into a spreadsheet.

  7. I am thinking of getting a dash cam and I have heard that they can sometimes cause interference with DAB radios. There is a wire in the windscreen just to the right of the mirror and I wondered if that is the aerial. If it is then it's likely a cam would cause interference. Has anyone had problems with interference from a cam?
  8. Thank you and you are quite right it was a convenience. I don't like cruise control so don't use it, I don't have TSS on mine but wouldn't use it if it was.
  9. Neither the CRV or Freelander had xenon headlights, just normal halogens, but they still had them.
  10. On regular 400+ mile journeys in the winter on motorways and A roads the headlight washers were extremely useful at getting rid of the salt.
  11. My last two cars, Honda CRV and Freelander, both had headlight washers so I expected the RAV to have them. Anybody know why Toyota decided not to have them fitted?
  12. Sorry, I didn't answer this question. As we live 15 miles from town that is, more often than not, the shortest journey. The road is an A road with a mix of single and dual carriageway. Travel is at the speed limit.
  13. The first fill was 39MPG but I had never owned a hybrid before so it took a bit of getting used to. After that it was 40, 42, 48, then stayed at around 43 but has been up to 49 on the last couple of fills. It very rarely runs the engine at the traffic lights. I have never changed any of the driving modes so it is just on the normal setting. Hope this helps.
