  1. Lots of reasons for decreasing mpg. Need a service?. You say it is a recent happening, has your driving routes changed?. Have you done anything different recently, like carrying more luggage, or passengers?. More information needed.
  2. Cat lover has you covered, all his questions are relevant to clutch wear.
  3. Maybe the Toyota dealer might be able to extend a longer time lapse of the stop/start function?
  4. Sorry for your loss and condolences to you and all your family.
  5. Like previous posts, towing the the trailer had absolutely nothing to do with the unfortunate event of oil loss. That car is more than capable of towing that weight. When changing the oil filter previously the large o ring may not have came off with the old filter and was stuck on to the car, and so you might have ended up with two o rings which when under pressure could caused the oil leak. Therefore gradually losing oil and eventually the filter working loose and blowing off. That could be another explanation for your oil loss.
  6. Welcome Ann, is this your first Hybrid?
  7. Following my post on dash cams. As you may have read I’ve had my front and rear hard wired dash cams fitted with Halfords own brand by Halfords. Only lasted six months and Halfords immediately replaced it with a new unit but would not extend the warranty. The new unit lasted about 10 days so back to Halfords again, this time informed me that they would fit new Nexus units as their own brand gave them a lot of trouble. Made an appointment and they rewired and fitted new Nexus units which seem much clearer. Halfords staff were very apologetic and helpful at all times and I would have no hesitation in shopping there again. So the message is that Halfords own brand of dash cams are prone to giving bother.
  8. With noisy braking and brake light flashing I would suspect worn brake pads.
  9. Enjoy your new Yaris, whether petrol or diesel it should be accelerator first, Diesel engine will not stall as quick as petrol.
  10. You’re almost there Mick, keep ‘er 🔥 lit.
  11. Welcome to the forum from Ireland. The early Toyota was prone to the dreaded rust, as were most Japanese cars. But their engineering was first class. I’ve been to your beautiful country and had a fantastic time in Tallin. Good luck with your project.
  12. Hi Nico, 2007 Corolla D4D is a great car providing it has been regularly serviced.
  13. Welcome to the forum Ian, great choice, bullet proof car
  14. Welcome to the forum Tom, I think you have made a great choice. Well done on keeping the Fiesta, an excellent car, and if I didn’t buy the Yaris Hybrid the Fiesta would have been my second choice.
  15. I suppose that’s true, mine is front & rear. Their technician did a great job, no wires to be seen. I assume that as they advertise fitting by the store they train up their staff to be efficient.
