  1. I forgot to do it today, but I will look at what says on the cap tomorrow. I am planning to do an oil change every 6k miles along with filter ( its only £3-£4 ). Btw, I am using E5 petrol 99 Octane. Do you guys use E10 95 Octane?
  2. I will check the cap, thank you! I will actually keep this topic as an online service history for myself.
  3. Btw what DOT do I need to buy? 3, 4 or 5.1?
  4. I have an account on toyota uk website and i've added my car. I just looked on youtube and i can definetly do the job myself, I didnt know it was so simple. Not very easy, but simple. I will do it next spring as you suggested.
  5. I wouldn't do a brake fluid flush myself, I am not that confident :). How much do you think a garage would charge me for the job? & Thank you for reply!
  6. Hello people, I bought the car (Auris 2013 1.6 Petrol) 1 month ago which just reached 65k miles. It has service history but mainly the oil and oil filter was changed every 10k-15k miles, or so. What I've done (changed) so far : oil and oil filter; air filter; cabin pollen filter; spark plugs; antifreeze (coolant). I've checked the brake fluid level and its fine. Topped up the screen wash with winter fluid. Did a battery health test and seems ok. Do you guys think I should check and/or change anything else?
  7. Hi people, I've attached a pic with some bolts that need replacing because they're rusted badly. Any idea what kind are they and where to buy them from? Possibly give me a link? Thank you!!
  8. Catlover I Have the car for literally 2 days now :)))
  9. Its the fuel pump. I've booked the car in just now at my local toyota dealer, they will do it for free. Thank you guys
  10. This is whats on gov site. I came across it by coincidence.
  11. Hi friends, I just checked my MOT status and looks like yesterday Toyota issued a recall on my Auris which is 1.6 Petrol 63 plate. Any idea what is this about? I've sent my local dealer an email to ask but i am curious if someone else got it or knows what is it about. Thank you!!
  12. Btw is your avensis automatic or manual? Is the 1.8 engine same on 2012-2015 to later models like your 2017?
  13. Hi Scott, thank you for your reply, i really do appreciate it! Mot looks clean, at least in my perspective. I know about the tax, i am not worried about that too much. I heard about the actuator which pulls the handbrake, but how can I test it? or it works well up to a point and when it fails it just stops working? I can see you have the 2017 model, is it worth the money? Should I consider to finance one with 5k down payment?
  14. Hi guys, I am looking to buy a Toyota Avensis and came across the 1.8 Petrol 2011 model. I am interested in the petrol engine because I do at most 5k mile/year. Exact model: 1.8 TR 4dr Here's the link if it helps: toyota avensis on autrotrder The car has 109,091 miles already. What should I look for? Are there any common known faults with this model, electrical, engine, gearbox? My budget is 5k so I am opened to other suggestions. Thank you very much!
