  1. How many hills can you get in a Corolla? As many as you want untill its reached the peak capacity.😎
  2. Cruise Control. I have 2019 2L Excell and the cruise control exhibits same problem. Its equipped with standard cruise control and radar adaptive cruise control. Its its not at all downhills its a problem as engine breaking works ok but when the slope increases it can't cope. It even has problems going uphill when the gradient suddenly eases. Its almost as if the software has not heard of the breaks. BUT - if you use the radar adaptive cruise control and come behind a slow moving vehicle the breaks slow you down to match the speed of car in front. WORSE STILL - If you have cruise control set and alarm set to warn of going over speed limit from road sign recognition (set mine to max of +5mph over limit) then at over limit +1mph you get a 4 bong alarm which is a bit distracting as its not documented. Took Toyota and the dealer 8 months of investigation (and lots of dashcam footage with sound recordings) for them to say it was a standard feature. (Which i interpret as "tough luck mate we are doing nothing about it so learn to live with it") Watch it here on the flat! As for phone problems. Can't help. UK numbers with +44 when calling me in UK are ok. Dont get calls from abroad anymore after retiring and becoming UKcentric!!!!!
  3. UK dealer enabled the keyfob window option for me FOC a few days after i collected the car. Auto locking of doors once moving is not an option in UK as King Crimson comments. After some research it looks like its not available in UK. I believe its something to do with crash testing! Some standard requires a auto-locked door to be operable from the inside after a crash and they had difficulties in recruiting a living crash dummy for testing!@!!🤕🤕🤕🤕
  4. For all of you waiting or wanting a new Corolla there is good news. https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/news/local-news/toyota-reveals-date-production-restart-4141507
  5. Looks like you are not alone. https://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/topic/123165-service-gone-message-on-infotainment-screen/?tab=comments#comment-1121795 No replies yet. I have not noticed problem but car has not been out since 23rd march. Will check over next few days if i have ant spare time-🙄🙄🙄🙄
  6. Did not solve problem. Dealer updated Audio software to 1011 but it still randomly disconnects phone during a call. Back to the drawing board.
  7. I was so disappointed when the salesman told me that the man with red flag option was no longer available. So i went and bought a horse and cart.
  8. I think what bewA a is saying is you have to have cruise control on and then give a burst from the throttle, ease off accelerator and let it power through the cruise limit. I vaguely recall this happening a few weeks back. I think bewA is right about what is happening but the tolerance on this alarm is tight. I can on some roads that an not excessively hilly get 6 alarms in 2 miles without touching the accelerator. It can only mean the cruise control is not that good!
  9. Thanks for info. It starts to make some sense. But if i disable RSA it never makes the 4 beeps!
  10. Thanks for your comment. Will change my speedo display and see what happens. Your explanation is similar to one offered by the garage when i first reported the problem. However the 1,3 or 5 over speed settings seem to have no effect. Also i started calling out the cruise speed, speed limit and actual speed to record on the dashcam. And the were all within the limits. It also happens uphill, downhill and along flat. Video clip it was flat as a pancake at 30mph I have also had it happen with standard cruise control as well. Anyway will try with alternate display. Thanks
  11. When i first got the car there were lots of beeps and bongs. Slowly over a few weeks i was able to reduce them or make them less sensitive using the setup options. BUT i have one annoying sound. It 4 bongs with no indication on the dash. It happens when cruise control is set and RSA is on. It happens at certain geographic locations 60% of the time. The dealer (despite seeing it whilst they drove the car) and toyota have no idea what is causing it!!!!! The have said 4 weeks ago they will update satnav to latest version to see if that cures it but they can't provide an update as the update service is not working and dont know when it will be fixed. TOYOTA CERTAINLY KNOW HOW NOT TO INSTILL CONFIDENCE IN ITS CUSTOMERS!
  12. Yes i have the same option installed! I think its called SFT (Self Camouflage Tailgate ). But you will find that it also has facility to tell you when you need to wash the tailgate. Its incorporated in the gear shift. When you select reverse the display shows like a wet mist on the screen. For some reason if you wipe the little glass eyeball on the tailgate the mist disappears but the car tailgate remains dirty.😎
  13. Have you checked your car to make sure its not morphed into a Lexus😉
  14. Thanks Jiff Looks like there could be a Toyota problem. Disappointing to know they have such a problem and its taking weeks to fix!
  15. Please don't hijack this topic with costs and availability of apple car play. The topic is Toyota UK unable to provide software update for new 2019 Corolla hybrid
