  1. Hi guys, Anyone drive a new (2012- ) 1.0 or 1.33 petrol yaris for long distances on the motorway? Is it noisy or tiring? What is the mpg like?? Thanks, PFJ
  2. I test drove a new auris today and was surprised at the level of road noise in what I consider an expensive quality car. Anyone else agree with this? Has anyone driven the older and new auris back to back? Which is no user in terms of road noise? PFJ
  3. Hi all, I've been thinking about changing my car for either a d4d yaris, auris or avensis. I love the avensis' comfort levels on the motorway. I am thinking about the 2.0L D4D (probably a 2007-2010 model) and see it gives 50mpg or so. My question is whether anyone has tried tramps or tuning boxes for economy purposes and what so of mpg you got after. I do 60 miles of A roads, 40 miles of motorway and 10 miles of 30/40MPH per day on my daily commute. I therefore do 110x5 = 550miles per week for commuting. All opinions welcome.
  4. Cheers, I am probably looking for an 2008-2010 2.0L D4D. I don't mind slow cars (our family car is a golf SDI), my key concerns are reliability, cabin noise and decent fuel efficiency. PFJ
  5. Hi all, I currently drive a little diesel aygo which is a great wee car, reliable and does 70mpg easily. However I do 800 miles a week on A-roads and motorways and is starting to get to me (road noise at 70mph for 1 hour is tiring!). Anyway, I like the look of the yaris and love it's promise of reliability and 65mpg but h a 've read too many complaints about road noise. Hence I like the idea of the Auris (I assume road road is not a big complaint amongst owners??). Assuming it isn't, it is the mpg that is putting me off at the moment. Fuelly.com uk mpg is around high 40's to very low 50's at very best for the diesel. Is this the experience of diesel Auris owners here? With the mileage I do mpg is very important, but so is ringing ears from road noise. I also don't want to go outside the Toyota brand as I love the quality. All opinions welcome. Thanks, PFJ
  6. Just curious if anyone has thought about getting their pre-2014 aygo altered/painted to have the black X on the front? PFJ
  7. Aye, they only made it for one year and it didn't sell too well because it does 68mpg and the petrol does 60+ with cheaper fuel prices, better acceleration and cheaper servicing.
  8. Hi, Anyone else wear earplugs on long motorway journeys? I have an aygo diesel 2006 and on some roads the noise gets too much. Is the petrol quieter at motorway speeds? Cheers, PFJ
  9. Hi all, I am looking some guidance from anyone who has experienced the same or similar misery with their aygo. I have found rain water in the spare wheel well (about 300 no - a can of coke worth) and a partially wet back seat and also wet boot carpet a d slightly wet rear driver side floor carpet. Today I removed and cleaned the rear light assemblies and rear high brake light and then reassembled applying vasaline around the seals. I also sprayed silicone spray around door, window and boot rubber seals. I mopped up all water and currently have a dehumidifier to help dry it. Of note, the roof material around the high level light is bone dry and the wet seems to have occurred after getting the car power washed then we had a massive downpour of rain. Time will tell if this has made any difference but has anyone else had this? If so please could you tell me what the issue was. Thanks
  10. They may be exactly the same, but not sure. I hope to pick one up cheap on eBay but don't want to buy a petrol version if it won't work on my diesel aygo. Thanks From C1 store.........

  11. Hi all, I have a question regarding rev counters. If I plug a petrol aygo/c1/107 rev counter into my 1.4 diesel aygo (2006) will it work? If it does will it read the correct rpm (acknowledging it would only use part of the rev range as the diesel revs lower) or a fraction of (as the petrol is a 3 cylinder and the diesel a 4 cylinder)? Is there something in software that will stop a petrol rev counter working on a diesel? Thanks, Philip
