  1. sorry with christmas and being busy at the time i have not got back to you but if anyone else is interested in a good car it now as a brand new 12 months mot on it for a car of this age and considering the junk some garages sells and normally a £1000 pound more on the forecourts these days don't let the age put you off older diesel cars are much better especially when they have been maintained throughout its life like this one as ,touch wood its never given us no problems it's a very reluctant sale due to needing a larger car to tow a 6 berth caravan we bought before the end of the summer of last year .

THERE'S NO particulate filter on these cars so you can do has much town driving as you want no Dreaded warning lights coming on worse cars ever the ones with a DPF hate the dam things worst invention ever . all 4 alloys are in great condition . it did fail on a broken spring on an mot but this was replaced with a Brand new one fitted . its passed every mot each year since i have owned it , .The mileage is below average for a vehicle of this age. ( the Average mileage of 137600 is expected for a car of this age , Super low miles economical diesel car. now as a new MOT Service history, Cloth interior, Sunroof Manual (Glass Tilt/Slide), Air-Conditioning but needs Top up or refill , Electric Windows (Front), In Car Entertainment (Radio/CD), Alloy Wheels (14in) All good Tyres all round , Airbags, Adjustable Steering Column/Wheel, Body Colored Bumpers, Folding rear seats, Rear seat can be pushed forward to make more room in boot Head Restraints, Immobilizer, Power steering, Remote central locking, Electric door mirrors. 5 seats, No advisories on last mot.. 2 Keys. HPI Clear!, (No finance)100% clear guaranteed. Viewing Welcomed Any Test drive or Inspection as long as your insurance covers you to drive any car. The car is in immaculate condition for it's year its drives faultless and very Nippy and holds the road well easy to park may well suite new driver it feels a solid car its cheap to run fuel figures are real good its not slow to drive its picks up well as its as a turbo .it reaches 70 easily on duels and motorways , the only reason I am selling the Yaris we bought a 6 berth caravan and need to buy a bigger car to tow it , its a very reluctant sale . I don’t think you will be disappointed things that has been done to the Yaris its had new,,,, brake pads new Discs, new front bearing both sides a few months ago,,,,it will not need a service till next year fuel filter was done on the last service. it failed on a broken rear spring at the last mot this was changed. I am open to very nearest offer .theirs a lot of junk out there you will find it hard to find something genuine and well looked after you will only get what you pay for these days . I want to sell it but i its very reluctant as i got nothing bad to say about the car . if you have a daughter or relative that wants a cheap runabout and its real good on fuel tax is £30 .you can;t go wrong . These cars selling on auctions sites for around £2800 £3000 with this sort of millage. if interested contact me through email with a telephone number and I will get back to you later first come first serve I will not hold the car unless a deposit is paid first . this is a first come first serve no time wasters £2100 Ovno . feel free to carry out any Hpi check or an AA inspection at your own cost . any trial as long as you have car insurance that covers you drive . The part x value of the Yaris is around £1750 so if you're looking to buy from a garage and yours is less in trade value my car might be worth more in part ex value than yours due to the mileage as long as i get the car i am looking for i could even do a swap i been offered this against other cars but it also depends on what garages offer you . overall a good quality car regardless of age you can go buy cheaper cars of this age but i very much doubt they will be in this condition and have been looked after . Any trial or inspection I am very confident that who ever comes to see it will buy it the pictures don't do it justice . It's a nice colour blue as well
  4. Anyone know what could be causing this problem , I had a new front wheel bearing replaced, I'm not sure if the problem was there before doing this job .when you put the wheel back on and tighen the wheel nuts the brake's tighen and the wheel don't spin freely but when you slacken the nut's off its OK what's going on theres no issue with the caliper? ?? Everything looks OK but obviously not .
  5. I bought it now and can't return it the yaris is empty so i assume this kit is going to be no good for this .
  6. my partner as a 2003 TOYOTA YARIS T SPIRIT 1.4 D-4D i bought a EZ CHILL AUTO AIR CONDITIONING RECHARGE do anyone know where the Low Pressure Port is to refill the aircon is it run out for sometime so its probably nothing in it . how much will it take to refill it if its empty. i looked and cant find where to attach the connection . any help would be appreciated thanks
  7. I took my Avensis 2008 plate back today as i had problems with a the turbo i had a refund under the 5 days return policy ,i read some horror stories regarding the head gaskets on the 2003 to 2008 on here it put me right off the car .apart from the bad reviews i liked the car some hate some like it i am one to say i liked it . so i am now looking at the 2010 plus range and any major issues popping up with this car if anything dose it have the DPF fitted . so whats your views on the latest modal any horror stories that cost a fortune to put right .it looks like Toyota is losing the plot with reliability and most of all is the concern to put them right when they fail .
  8. link to noise coming from turbo please note it was much louder than on video . http://tinypic.com/r/9qlpjo/8
  9. Need some advise the car was quiet till today only bought it from toyota 2 days ago as pre delivery all looked ok even the test drive no issues normal very low whistle like all turbos do which I would class as normal , today I used the car and the pitch on the whistle as got much loader you can here it through exhaust at the back , I done a visual check all the pipes looks ok could the turbo be on its way out .also i noticed the car sounds more erratic sound coming from the engine bay its sounds like a timing chain rattle but i would not think it would be this due to mileage
  10. I have the 2.0 model d4d that as got vlc braking the brakes need a complete fluid change , whats the safest way to do this or is it recommend getting them done at toyota .I have bleeded brakes on other cars useing the easybleed but I'm very nervous in doing this car as I don't want to throw up any codes or damage the vlc module or braking system as it's supposed to be expensive to replace if done wrong any one got views on completing this without damaging or causing air locks in the breaking system.
