  1. You should be able to get another remote programmed by a Toyota dealer and a key cut either by the dealer or a key cutting shop such as timpsons. The only thing is that the remotes including the programming from Toyota dealers won’t be cheap probably around £200 assuming they still do them for a 2002 Yaris you will also need the key number which you should have had when you bought the car if not I think they can program a new remote from the info on the chip from your exsisting remote.
  2. Not sure about the 2008 auris but I piggybacked the fuse for the 12 Volt accessory socket on the 2015 auris I had. the dash cam came with the piggyback fuse which was 2 amp from memory. you also need to find a suitable earth.
  3. When I had my 2015 auris hybrid at its 5 year service with 18000 on the clock they done a fuel injection clean and engine flush which I hadn’t asked for. I could not see anything in the service schedule that this was required if it had done 50000 plus then it might have been justified. when the 3 year service is due on the corolla I will make sure that they don’t do any extras other than what’s in the service schedule. These dealers should not do any extra work unless the customer has asked for it.
  4. I’ve just changed to the AA let’s hope there premiums will be as good as there claims procedure if needed (hope not) was with direct line premium went up from £210 from last year to £290 this year complained to them reduced it to £284 big deal ! I have had a good service from them in the past when I had the auris someone reversed into me had a top of the range Vauxhall suv as a courtesy car not your basic hatchback. you would have thought that as I have the house insurance and pet insurance with them that they could have done better than £284.
  5. I think esso supreme also offers 3x more cleaning power Tesco momentum also claim more cleaning power I tend to use esso supreme and you get the nectar points which offers more flexibility as to what you can spend them on such as swapping points for British airways avios.
  6. The other thing to bear in mind it will be worth more with full dealer history if decided to trade it in. toyota dealers do provide a collection and delivery or courtesy car my dealer charges £15 this is to cover insurance.
  7. There are two recommended garages in my magazine in Hertfordshire but wether they can service hybrid cars I don’t know they can probably do the mechanical side of it but unsure about the hybrid side ie: traction battery etc although I think it’s only a matter of checking the voltages of the individual cells of the traction battery. One is DC Roger’s auto repairs tele 01432 264200 and the other is Broxbourne MOT and motorist Unit 1 bridge works Nazing new road Broxbourne herts EN10 6SG. As frosty has said you will get the benefit of the 12 month warranty if you have it serviced at Toyota but having said that these cars are ultra reliable so yes it’s all down to personal choice.
  8. Personally I wouldn’t bother with my T it’s rubbish (just look at the reviews) go to the Toyota website register and click on add car then enter reg and or vin number.
  9. As Tony said D or P for me when stopped at railway crossing or waiting for a boat at a canal bridge usually go into park, that was the habit I got into when I had cars with a torque converter which tended to get a tad warm if left in D. I can’t remember ever using N when I had autos with a torque converter.
  10. My rav 4 T180 2.2 2006 was fitted with a DPF Toyota called it DCAT. So in answer to your question probably yes.
  11. Probably put an unsupervised apprentice on the job I worked briefly in a Ford garage donkeys years ago and an apprentice forgot to fill it back up with oil fortunately it was spotted by the foreman so no harm done.
  12. The main thing is if it’s main dealer serviced then it has to be more attractive as a used car buy and worth more as a trade in that’s what I think anyway.
  13. I’m getting 57 on the display I force mine into ev when there is enough charge in the battery in the winter when sat at traffic lights don’t worry to much about the cabin heating the heated seat helps obviously when the car goes over 25 mph the engine then cuts in.
