  1. I sprayed a little PTFE spray lubricant into the electric motor to ease it folding. Mine were fairly dry.
  2. Here is the automatically folding and extending the electric mirrors procedure from the user manual. I hope this helps. 😎 (2016 Auris Excel Hybrid owner)
  3. @Bruce Lea This is not uncommon or abnormal for a hybrid during cold weather. I see the same results with my 2016 Auris Excel Hybrid hatchback. Nothing to worry about.
  4. @MagicBoy I too wish that the top of the gear stick lit up blue. How cool would that look?
  5. Nope. I’m 6 foot 2” of slim build and have a 2016 Auris Excel Hybrid hatchback. It’s got part leather / alcantara / cloth seats. My drivers seat is heated, has height adjustment and electric lumbar adjustment, and quite firm bolsters. I chose the car because I need lumber support for my lower back. I can’t have a car without lumbar support. In the (nearly) 2 years of ownership, the car has never given me a bad back, or back ache from driving. I’ve found the seats to be supportive on long journeys.
  6. TonyHSD is correct. Its linked to the headlights system. It’s a downwards pointing LED which lights the hybrid gear selector area up at night time.
  7. @Garry Streeter I have a 2016 Auris Excel Hybrid. What version of in car entertainment system does yours have? Mine has the Toyota Touch 2 with Go. I had to reset mine when I first bought the car to fix a Bluetooth connectivity problem.
  8. My last car (2010 Ford Focus 1.6 TDCI titanium hatchback) didn’t have those clear rear arch protectors. I wish it did because after 7 years of ownership and 85,000 miles driven by myself, the rear arches (just behind the rear passenger doors at sill height) looked like they’d been shot with a shotgun! Absolutely peppered by stones flying up from my tyres 🛞. My 2016 Auris Excel hybrid hatchback came with clear rear arch chip protectors fitted when I bought it. Yes, they can discolour with age, but they look virtually invisible on my silver bodywork and they do a damn good job of protecting the leading edge of the rear arches from stone attacks. Shame I didn’t manage to find anything like this for my poor old Focus. 😔
  9. Which stereo do you currently have? I stream music from my iPhone via Bluetooth to my Auris.

  11. Those are projector headlights, not LED headlights. I believe those are of a one bulb design, with a shutter that lifts to change the physical beam pattern to main beam, rather than a second bulb circuit activating when you turn the main beam on. Mines got the full LED headlights, and they look and work very differently. No headlamp washers on mine though. (UK 2016 Auris Excel Hybrid hatchback) so I guess that you are not in the UK (possibly Europe?)
