  1. Wouldn't have thought there would be any Toyota warranty on the hybrid battery.
  2. Aftermarket HID kits will be an MOT fail. As regards upgrade HIR2 bulbs, there are PIAA hyper arros available or Toyota Optiwhite. See
  3. The OP's question isn't regarding a retrofit, but when Carplay/Auto may be standard.
  4. Wasn't aware that DAB had been dropped, but certainly having Apple Carplay/Android Auto has made the previous X-nav module (sat nav) redundant. Older X-touch units cannot be upgraded to the new spec.
  5. The X-touch multimedia system with smartphone integration (what you call X-connect) isn't compatible with the previous X-nav navigation system (which is now no longer available as an option). Instead you should be able to connect your smartphone (Apple or Android) via a cable and mirror/use a sat nav app such as Waze, Android Auto, etc. As your car is new, it should have the latest software update. Usually any software update can be done by a dealer.
  6. Toyota are targeting different customer groups for each version of the Corolla. Extracted from Toyota UK blog: "Each is designed to fulfil different customer needs. The compact Hatchback is aimed at young couples; the versatile Touring Sports for families; and the comfortable Saloon targeting young professionals who want more prestigious styling, on-board space and comfort."
  7. Hello David - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  8. Hello Glyn - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  9. Sales of the Prius are in decline generally - partly as a result of other hybrids from Toyota. Annual sales in Sweden for 2019 are likely to be 8000-8500. Whereas for 2018 sales were 12,253, 2017 13,630 and 2016 16,648.
  10. You escalate to Toyota GB Customer Services - https://www.toyota.co.uk/contact-us/
  11. As the car was originally fitted with a cat, if the cat were deleted it should fail the MOT.
  12. Probably the camera used for Toyota Safety Sense - not a dash cam.
  13. Hello Graham - welcome to Toyota Owners Club. Moved to the Corolla club.
  14. Hello Ed - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  15. Hello Dan - welcome to Toyota Owners Club.
  16. Also see https://blog.toyota.co.uk/toyota-use-atkinson-cycle-engines
  17. The article does state that it is North and South America: "Toyota is recalling around 3.4 million vehicles across North and South America because their airbags may not inflate in a collision, with the defect linked to a report of one fatal crash. The recall includes 2.9 million US vehicles and covers certain 2011 to 2019 Corollas, 2011 to 2013 Matrix, 2012 to 2018 Avalon and 2013-2018 Avalon Hybrid models."
  18. Presumably you've sought the opinion of a Toyota dealer re the wear and whether it is covered under warranty.
  19. One can also download the IQ owners manual directly from Toyota - https://www.toyota.co.uk/tme#/my-toyota/eManual Choose a generic search and on the following page, in 'month of manufacture' choose November.
  20. Split into new topic and moved to the Auris club.
  21. An increasing number of dealers, and not just Toyota dealers, will cover their costs by stating a diagnostic charge may be payable. If the fault turns out to be a warranty issue, the diagnostic charge isn't charged to the customer. If the fault is not a warranty issue, the charge is passed onto the customer. The OP needs to clarify this with the dealer.
