  1. Cars already have a manually operated noisemaker if someone looks like stepping in your path - it's called a horn!
  2. What about when in a long slow-moving queue of traffic? In a decade or two when everybody will be driving EV/hybrid cars there'll be a right old racket assortment going on if they can't be disabled.
  3. I live just outside Gloucester and know that there's certainly one in the public car park at the bottom of Westgate Street in Gloucester. Provided it's serviceable of course...
  4. Well I'm now a member of this 5+ group but still get this annoying pop-up every time click on this forum - and I've got Adblocker on too. And the 'Welcome Pack' has (so far at least) consisted of a single sheet letter with a paper credit card sized sticker attached.

    Now that sounds like a good idea Chris, will give it a go if I have any further problems. In my (allbeit limited) experience Gorilla products are extremely effective.
  6. Yup, they've emailed to confirm that's what will happen.
  7. ....and next time I try it works ok! Does someone at Toyota read this forum perhaps? Although I still get the annoying pop-ups inviting me to join...
  8. Every time I click on this Forum I get a pop-up inviting me to join the Toyota 5+ club, which enables me to get a 20% discount on my service/MOT requirements. So when I followed this up and entered my reg.no. (63 plate registered Jan 14) I am admonishingly told in red letters that this club is for 5 year old Toyotas only! Is this a typical example of Toyota's (much feted) customer service, or is someone just bad at maths I wonder?

    Me and my big mouth - my dashcam fell off in the sun today....
  10. Depends on what you intend to use the car for of course, but for me buying a car at that mileage would be a bit of a head-scratcher. Other items will start to show signs of wear at that mileage apart from the hybrid battery. Could you get a friendly Toyota dealer to give it a once over for you (for a price no doubt!) before you commit to buying?

    In the almost 2 years that I've had my dashcam it's only dropped off twice - both times last summer when the car was parked the hot sun for some while. Mine is only secured by me rubbing spittle on the pad. As someone suggested, perhaps your pad is damaged in some way.
  12. What about that Rain-X stuff? Has anybody tried that (I never have)? Would it have any beneficial effect, or just be a waste of dosh?
  13. Have you tried a glass polish on the screen? Did something attach itself to the screen, unseen and undetected, during manufacture/installation (unlikely I know as more than one car affected similarly). I've used glass polish in the past on previous cars to pretty good effect. In my experience windscreen wipers don't seem to operate trouble free for very long, but having said that the original ones still on my current 5yr old car are probably the most trouble free of any car I've ever owned. Reluctant to change them for that reason, so long as they are efficient and safe enough to pass the MOT.
  14. Well I've owned 2 Toyota saloons, a 1998 Avensis and a 2007 Avensis, and can honestly say I never really had a rear view problem with either. No rear cameras either, although I did have rear sensors fitted to the later model (at Mrs Duffryns' suggestion - even so she was never really happy driving it cos "it's so big"!).
  15. It's a helluva long time since I was a boy racer, but, like the OP, I generally prefer the look of a saloon over a hatchback. It would be a lot of money to shell out though when I'm more than happy with my current machine.
