  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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. 😏😏😏😏😏😏
  5. 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.
  6. How many hills can you get in a Corolla? As many as you want untill its reached the peak capacity.😎
  7. 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
  8. 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€•
  9. 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
  10. 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-πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„
  11. Did not solve problem. Dealer updated Audio software to 1011 but it still randomly disconnects phone during a call. Back to the drawing board.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. Thanks for info. It starts to make some sense. But if i disable RSA it never makes the 4 beeps!
  15. 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
