    Auris Dash Cam Wiring

    If one downloads the full owners manual from https://www.toyota.co.uk/tme#/my-toyota/eManual the location of the fuses should be detailed in the manual.

    EPB problem -Again!!!!

    The standard Toyota new car warranty is three years/100,000km. For cars sold by Toyota GB in the UK, Toyota GB provided the two year/40,000 mile new car warranty extension, which is administered by Toyota GB. I would imagine that as you have effectively exported the car to Ireland, the new car warranty reverts to the standard Toyota new car warranty.

    New Aygo Coming!

    No - new cars only come with an abbreviated owners manual. One can download the full owners manual from https://www.toyota.co.uk/tme#/my-toyota/eManual Do a generic search rather than input the VIN

    New Aygo Coming!

    As far as I'm aware, the X-shift fitted to the second generation Aygo (2014 onwards), is a developed version of the Multi Mode Transmission (automated manual gearbox) fitted to the first generation Aygo. From memory, I've yet to see complaints on the forum as regards the X-shift. There is currently only one complaint about the X-shift in the Good & Bad section of the Honest John review - https://www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/toyota/aygo-2014/good/ - which dates from September 2016.

    Which Brake Fluid to use

    The owners manual states either DOT3 or DOT4, which are glycol based. DOT5.1 is also glycol based. DOT5 is silicone based and cannot be mixed with either DOT3, 4 or 5.1. The difference is the boiling points:

    Corolla Verso 2003 query

    As regards registering a car with DVLA, what matters is when the car was first registered for use on the road, not the build date. Usually this date is when the car was delivered to a customer buying it as new. Dealers may also register cars as demonstrators or similar. Sometimes dealers have sales campaigns where cars are registered before sale to a customer (known as pre-registering), and then discount the cars when they go on sale. Some companies/individuals may also import used vehicles from Japan - known as 'grey imports' - for which DVLA use the original foreign registration certificate to determine the build date, and then issue a UK registration number for the year the car was built. As regards your car, can you post a picture. I suspect it may be the first generation Corolla Verso (also known as the Corolla Spacio) that was exported to Europe from Japan between late 2001 and early 2004. This was replaced by the European market Corolla Verso that was launched in May 2004, which was a different Turkish built model. The report you attached states the car was built in Japan, which suggests it may be the earlier version. As the earlier version was only exported to Europe for a short time, third party websites, etc often don't have the correct information on this model. A Toyota dealer should be able to supply a replacement timing kit if one cannot source it from a third party.

    Hello!

    Hello Clayton - welcome to Toyota Owners Club. The selection of Toyota model one has shouldn't affect access to the various forums. If the issue persists, come back to me and we'll get the account looked at.
