  1. I've had my hybrid auto for over 5 years now. Just keep a check on the 12 volt battery in the boot mine failed and had to get the RAC, out the battery had to be replaced and the RAC, quoted me £150 ouch but because they don't sell the battery for my car (something to do with engine switching off at traffic lights n stuff ) He had to get one from a Toyota dealer and they were cheaper than what RAC, sold them about £120 But touch wood no other troubles since Enjoy your car happy driving
  2. Thanks for the info but after reading all your replies I've decided to just buy another kit from here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Slime-CRK0305-Smart-Tyre-Repair/dp/B003QHY000/ref=sr_1_2?crid=BLN3U6FY06YA&keywords=spare%2Btyre%2Bfoam&qid=1653671094&sprefix=spare%2Btyre%2Bfoam%2Caps%2C90&sr=8-2&th=1 Just hope the next puncture isn't in the sidewall of the tyre fingers crossed
  3. Hi all , I was driving my Auris Auto Hybrid 1.8 when I got puncture but my car does not have a spare tyre so I had to use the included repair kit that was in the boot ,using it to inflate the tyre but after a short drive the tyre still went down. After reading the small print it says it doesn't work if the puncture is in the side wall, which mine was Dam ! Anyway I have had the tyre changed and all is fine again. I was wondering can I fit a spare in the boot so next time I can just change the tyre
  4. Hi All , My air con as stopped working again I had it fixed last year but its failed again , so that's gonna cost me another £50 to get it done for the coming warm weather (fingers crossed) But my Auris Hybrid is now 9 years old with just under 70000 miles the clock so I guess its to be expected Sigh !

  11. Japanese car giant Toyota has announced a recall of more than 2.4 million hybrid vehicles worldwide because of a fault in their systems that could cause them to lose power. ... However, the carmaker said that in "rare situations", the fault could cause vehicles to stall when entering "failsafe" driving mode I phoned my local Toyota dealer in Liverpool. I told them mine was registered in 2013 and they told me they are sending out letters to those effected and I should receive one soon you can check on the My Toyota web site if your car is included in the recall, just enter your reg number .
