    Gen 4 Prius, PiP and Hybrid C-HR Recall

    Had mine done also at my local servicing dealer - same as above inspected with no fault found just extra anti-chaff tape. I asked the dealer if they had any vehicles affected so far - which there were none.

    Screenwash level check

    The total capacity seems to be about 4 litres.

    Another recall

    Made the BBC - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45756676
  4. My Prius is primarily a work vehicle and does on occasion involve going off road and along unmade tracks to access our sites this means that sometimes I am in rather wet and muddy places. I've managed since December last year but now winter is not far away I need to invest in some heavy duty mats. Would anyone have any suggestions? I'm mainly after front mats, and possible boot liner.

    Issues with Radio Traffic Announcements

    I'm assuming you're referring to the traffic updates via bluetooth mobile data connection - see below

    New Prius Excel - good deal?

    Personally I have a small sized (good for the tight space on the centre console) 128GB USB Flash drive with various MP3 separated into directories, with sub directories for CD1/2 etc. This actually came straight from my previous Focus with a small update of various new songs. Bluetooth connectivity does work also from my Android phone - only thing I wish the car offered was Spotify integrated application but Bluetooth will have to do as I doubt Mr. T will change their standing on current models.

    As I'm also a Pete I can answer that 😉 On the centre storage box between the front seats there is button which is hidden in the lip at the front that you press inwards - the lid will then pull up and fold open towards the passenger seat.

    Booking a Service

    That's interesting I thought every new car for nearly 10 years notified of service due - I'll find out soon I suppose. Its a company car so I'll be contacting the transport department and seeing what they state 🙂

    Booking a Service

    I got my Gen 4 '67 in December last year and now am nearly at 9500 miles - Can anyone confirm the service interval? I'm assuming its 10,000 and the car will start warning me shortly.

    Start battery keeps going empty

    Is it a factory original battery? If its from 2006 as your sig details that's lasted quite well 🙂

    Could you maybe take a photo?
  12. Received a newsletter email [quoted below] from Carista they advise they are seeking beta testers for Toyota / Lexus models for new customizations. Might be useful for people to apply.

    Gen2 to Gen4

    Nor on my Business Plus Gen 4 either although I did notice the option within the manual. My previous car had the option to completely switch off auto headlights and I figured that was a require EU standard unfortunately not :)

    Gen 4 Fuse Location

    You're welcome - I had trouble myself and found information lacking

    Gen 4 Fuse Location

    Funny enough I changed my rear dome light in my gen 4 recently and managed to blow the fuse in the process. I can confirm in the RHD style the fuse box for the dome is located on the passenger side with a small section of trim in the foot-well underneath the glove box that needs to be removed. You should then see a small fuse box on the left with a small removable door. The dome fuse is the 3rd one down on the LHS and rated at 7.5A. The style is a flush fit mini blade fuse although the normal mini blade fuses do fit but the door can't be replaced. I've attached a quick photo for comparison as I still had them to hand along with the front cover of the passenger fuse box door which lists the fuses ratings and locations.
