    I rarely turn the AC off ,a colleague has the same model, he never turns his on and he gets 62mpg. He has had problems with rear discs delaminating from the inside out, anyone else had that. He's fitted ceramic discs. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Yaris Hybrid flatspot

    I have a bit of an annoying issue with my Yaris Hybrid, it's a 2014/2015 spec (big mouth version) based on the 1.5 engine. Acceleration is great from the off, no issue, though overtaking a dawdler, say doing 45 in a 60, goes like the clappers up to 60 then it's slow going acceleration wise beyond that, not that you should be doing over 60 in a 60, it's l like some nanny state limiter kicks in. On the motorway it's fine, cruise at 70, boot it to overtake and it takes off. Anyone else have this issue. By the way, I'm not a boy racer, I'm nearly 60 and like my 57.6mpg everywhere economy !

    Yaris Icon USB audio

    My experience, it works well but some caveats. Got about 30gb worth of music ripped to MP3 at the highest bitrate for best sound quality. At first copied then to a SanDisk Duo 128gb memory stick, had all sorts of problems like taking about 20 minutes for the menus to come up first time (assuming there is a lot of indexing of MP3 metadata going on) to painfully slow scrolling through menus. Fix was , buy the fastest USB stick you can , be patient for the first few days while the track info is sorted. When ripping , create a hierarchical structure on the USB stick, ie, \\Music\Artist\Album , merge multi disk albums into one. Finally, copy a dozen or so favourite tracks into the root folder, that way the menus come up quicker initially while the rest of the tracks are indexed. Finally, don't pull USB stick out while the power is on, buggered one USB stick that way. Final final, if you must format the USB stick, go for FAT32 Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. My Yaris Excel Hybrid doesnt have the subscribed Sat nav module installed, so can't install apps , the stock audio player is good though playing tracks from the USB port. Just wondering as to what the limitations are re what it can handle. I have ripped 500+ cds worth of tracks and the head unit struggles for the first few minutes, probably indexing the tracks Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Squeaky front seats

    I know it's only a minor niggle, but I have this irritating squeak from the front seats on my 2015 Yaris Hybrid, it's not metallic,it's a kind of squeaky shoe kind of noise. Anyone else have this issue and any tips to eradicate it ? Sent from my F8331 using Tapatalk

    Hi I have the same model and issue, only got my 2015 model Yaris Hybrid a few weeks ago, wondering if you found a solution. I like to rack up a good playlist on Amazon Music and stream it via Bluetooth, it plays fine but cannot control the playback or show track info on the Touch 2 head unit.
