    Thanks very much. Point well made and taken.

    Key not detected

    Thanks. I put a brand new battery in it and it was still doing it. I don’t keep my keys near anything electrical. It’s only the last few months it’s been getting worse and I have had the car 4 years. Everything on the service in December was fine. Thanks Glenn

    Key not detected

    Hi. Sometimes I can’t get in my car or when I do get in, the car won’t start because the key is not detected. I have changed the key battery and I think so did Toyota at Christmas. It’s driving me nuts. What else can I try? Sometimes when stationary with ignition off the car locks itself as well although I think that’s a motion sensor issue. Thanks Glenn

    Thanks. They definitely didn’t do all that!! They have called it a gold service but it wasn’t all of that.

    Hi Gerg,. Can't find anything about calipers on the sheet. All I know is it had two new tyres and one moved from front to back (I think) about three weeks ago and a wheel alignment, and it was fine. And now after a service and MOT it is not fine.

    Yes it feels like a vibration. They had left the locking nut box on the front passenger seat which I thought was a bit weird as no idea why they needed it. Haven’t checked the tyre pressures as they ought to be able to get that right and the air machine at Tesco is more likely to not work and leave me in bigger trouble.

    Thanks. It’s just like a shuddering and yes feels like overinflated tyres: but had two new tyres and wheel alignment done a few weeks ago. It’s been fine until the service. It was the gold service which is just ...oil filter, sump washer, engine oil, air filter, a gasket (don’t know where), degreased, brake fluid....think that’s it.

    No it’s only just had two new tyres and wheel alignment a couple of weeks ago and it’s been fine! merry Christmas

    Hi -since my 1.8 hybrid had its gold service on Friday and MOT on Saturday (yesterday) the ride quality has seemed MUCH worse. Like driving on a badly tarmacked road all the time. What's going on???

    They didn't find a thing on the service Friday or MOT Saturday. Annoying. However since the service / MOT the ride quality has seemed MUCH worse. Like driving on a badly tarmacked road all the time. What's going on???

    Cooling fan or breather pipe both sound like plausible candidates - have emailed Toyota to check on Saturday when the service is done - thanks a lot Eygo and Konrad
