  1. Speed limit warning is independent of cruise control. The cruise control overspeed warning happens at just over 1mph above the set speed. Dashcam recording shows it happening at 28mph.
  2. Found it. 4 Bongs Toyotas best undocumented feature explained in the second entry on this thread. https://www.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/194047-corolla-cruise-control-and-incoming-calls/?tab=comments#comment-153
  3. Have a look at this topic. When i first got the car there were so many beeps and bongs it confused me to hell. My problem was in fact 4 bongs not three as the topic title. At the end of the topic is a dashcam with audio. It took Toyota UK and the dealer 9 MONTHS!!!!!! to come up with the explanation and its pants! I think i posted a update and will post a link when i can find it. https://www.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/188632-3-beeps/
  4. Tried this (from amazon @ Β£12) and in the glorious sunshine we had in UK over the last two days it worked a treat. Thanks for recommending it catnash. Did not use much so even if it needs doing every month the bottle should last a long time.
  5. Yep my 1919 hybrid corolla 2L excel was fitted with that option. Its one of the few poor design features on the corolla. I tried wipes that were supposed to give a mat finish but that did not work. I now use, on the drivers side, a piece of thin black mat foam from Hobbycraft. It reduces the glare but takes off when blowing air to windscreen or when windows open or door open! Would welcome any suitable alternative solutions.
  6. I had a tapping noise over bumps and it was an unused rear seat belt tapping on the door trim. The unused belt should be tucked over a flap of belt so the soft belt cushions against door trim!!!! Its what is known as an undocumented feature😎 Worth checking
  7. I have to agree that parallel park assist can be a bit hit and miss. My first experience with this was with the audi system in 2010 and it performed well in most circumstances apart from when the cars you were parking between badly parked ( on the curb or diagonal) or when the parking slot was on the bend. You had to watch this as it was easy to curb your alloys. Having a Corolla for a year i have found their park assist to be a little less tolerant to others bad parking or when you have a monster truck and mini to park between than the audi system. I would agree with Andrewc
  8. My 2L Excel was the showroom car and it was hooked up to a battery charger. My car was left for 4 weeks during lockdown in my garage after which i moved it on to the drive and left it with ignition on in P. Had no trouble starting engine.
  9. I think you have a valid point but you need to take into account the position of the moon. Gravitational pull of the moon on the car can significantly improve mpg. 😏😏😏😏😏😏
  10. Small map on home screen is north up only. I has problems with the 3d option resetting to 2d north up on my 2019 model but the software update in March this year fixed it. It now also retains the voice guidance setting when the ignition is switched off and on.
  11. How many hills can you get in a Corolla? As many as you want untill its reached the peak capacity.😎
  12. 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
  13. 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!@!!πŸ€•πŸ€•πŸ€•πŸ€•
  14. 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
  15. 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.
