  1. I had one fitted recently as well... the problem is there is now a report on the Toyota blog site of a cat being stolen WITH a catloc fitted :( Apparently they caught the whole thing on CCTV and it took the thieves only 2 minutes. Do we get a refund from Toyota?
  2. I've found it ok, but only after you spend ages adjusting it. Moving the seat back and forward adjusts the height, adjusting the height slightly alters the back angle and also getting the back angle right makes a difference! So it's juggling 3 settings until you find a combination that works. I don't think much of the lumbar adjustment, so don't use it. On other cars I've had it made a difference. I'd much prefer an adjustment wheel for back angle rather than the fixed settings.
  3. Did Toyota say what the mileage limit was for it to be covered under warranty? I was thinking of buying a Toyota extended warranty, but it's no good if it doesn't cover things while still under the warranty mileage limit. If the car is within 6 years from build date, there's also an EU law that goods have to last a minimum 6 years.
  4. I've used brodit for many years. The auris phone bracket & large mount fits a note 8 large screen phone without blocking your view or the infotainment screen. It fixes into the vent mounting with a sticky pad and is exact fit for the car.
  5. I believe if you turn off keyless, to get it to start you have to touch the key fob to the start button when pressing it.
  6. One issue I've found with the rear side window shades is that a low sun from the side means you can't see through them unfortunately. They were fine in the summer, but I've had to remove the side window ones for winter as I'd go to look over my shoulder joining a nearby motorway and find that I couldn't see through them at all!
  7. I had a similar issue with my Yaris hybrid, a grinding noise every time the petrol engine started. Turns out it had been filled with the 'wrong' oil - 5W30 instead of the correct 0W20. Changing the oil fixed the problem.
  8. Mine was all done within a couple of weeks. The parts only took a few days and the dealer handled the warranty claim. I only had to pay for the optional excess waiver on the loan car. They had my car for a couple of days, as there is a fair amount of labour involved so they weren't sure they could do both seats in one day.
  9. Yes, I got them to replace both as both were the same problem. They cycle on and off every few minutes now, keeping you warm rather than hot. Before the fix, they were cool for a long time before cycling on once and then off. Maybe when the weather gets colder they might feel better, I've only had the chance to use them on cooler mornings over the summer since they were fixed.
  10. Had mine done under warranty, but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. They must be eco seat heaters that cycle normally, just a bit more frequently than when they were broken. Other cars I've been in they stay on like sitting on a radiator. They need the car for a day or two, and take the seat apart to replace the cushion heater unit.
  11. I've only had one false alarm go off, a similar thing. There was a big bug flying around inside that set off the sensor!
  12. The vanstyle ones are designed to be fitted and left in place. They have clips to attach them to the window rubbers. The construction is mesh with a wire surround. They are only on the inside of the windows, rather than a sock over the top of the door, so don't get wet. The shades also come with a storage bag, so you can put them in the boot if you want to detach them. I leave mine fitted. They sit in the frame exactly and don't rattle. As they are removable shades rather than window tinting they don't affect the insurance.
  13. I've had several sets from Vanstyle on eBay for different cars. They custom make the shades for each model type. These show as the tourer: https://bit.ly/2GCKUyD Sent from my MI MAX 2 using Tapatalk
