    Service Plans

    It does beg the question, as I say fear selling. On my Auris hybrid service, on top of the £165.00 they wanted £60 for tracking, £30 for fuel treatment, £30 for a pollen filter. Then I got “if the ventilation system fails it may not be covered if the pollen filters blocked and causes a problem. [emoji33][emoji33] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Service Plans

    According to the service manager if you have it serviced every year it’s covered, if not they’ll have a look at it if it fails. Which surprised me as you would expect it to be covered, but he was treating it as a separate service. Just another wriggle out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Service Plans

    I Agree it is a choice, a service plan for this car broken down gives the figure of £255 incorporated into the plan for a full service. Manufacturers dealers shops will try to wiggle out of any warranty claim, we all gear up for a fight when warranty is mentioned. I’ve made my decision and after 3 years it’s going to my mechanic, it originally had a service plan for £13 per month then 3 years later it jumped the near £30 per month [emoji848] no. If your saying that even though it was serviced under a service plan for 3 years since new in accordance with Toyota service schedule that I would have difficulty with a warranty claim because it’s only just having a full service, then that seals the deal to walk.

    Service Plans

    They want £255.00 for my wife’s 3 year old Aygo with 11,000 on the clock, that’s a years fuel for her, what’s the point of buying a economical car when they stuff you with a service price like this, anyway it’s off to my mechanic £120 all in. I got a bit fed up with the constant dodging in conversations with them. You need a Aircon service... why.... to keep it in tip top condition.... it’s working I don’t service my fridge?... but if it breaks it’s not covered under warranty.... So if I don’t have it serviced it’s out of warranty.... well technically we would have to look at it. [emoji849] It will affect the trade in price.... I mate of mine sold his car to a dealer who promptly sold it with a full dealer service history, even thought he serviced it himself. Nurturing Fear is the main driving force in the service department. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ok my usual 1/2 way point is 300 miles increased tyre pressures to “ECO” @ 36 and my half way point has increased Not changed driving style and still fully loaded with gear. If this is the case I will get one extra way to our place in Lytham [emoji905][emoji1303][emoji2][emoji2] An extra 39 miles this time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    £295 full service?

    Have a look at what’s included and what’s extra, they tried to charge me £40 for a pollen filter for the wife’s Aygo £10 eBay fitted. Look at what’s recommended and what’s not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    TPMS Failure?

    Set at 36 interesting, I’ve recently set mine to 36 getting better mpg (fully loaded) Dose it say 36 = eco on your tyre pressure chart @ the drivers door B pillar. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Another alteration to try to up MPG Noticed that running 36psi according to the tyre pressure chart is the eco pressure, so I went ahead and pumped them all up, We are fully loaded most of the time traveling motorway a half tank way point managed another 30 miles just through inflation. Don’t think it will have a detrimental effect on the tyres as I say we are fully loaded down with our gear. One thing I have noticed is the car will glide better and hold the speed better and for longer on electric. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
