  1. Mine is or should I say was the same (I sold it today), from cold it was flat but once warmed up it was fine and one of the most reliable cars I have owned......
  2. Andrew, Is this when the car is cold?
  3. Yes, looks like the best route, thanks....
  4. It won't be a trade in that's for sure, was only offered £2.5k yesterday, its a 55 plate with 75k on the clock with a full Toyota service history......
  5. I'm going to be replacing my Avensis in the next 6 weeks, where do you recommend I sell it? Autotrader springs to mind but I can't stand tyre kickers...
  6. I have had no trouble with my Toyota but I fancy going back to a Merc next time, and next time is April...
  7. Really ? That's actually very good for a reasonably powered FWD car that isn't exactly light. I'm guessing those tyres are composed of quite a hard compound rubber or you're very light-footed :) I would say light footed, especially due to the cost of fuel nowadays...
  8. Something is certainly wrong, I have had 35k off my 2 front tyres (Bridgestone REO50) and still some left..
  9. My 2.0 lt auto gives around 25mpg in town and up to 40mpg on the motorway...
  10. I have a 55 plate with 60k on the clock. It had 10k when I bought it 3 years ago. Not had any problems with it, burns no oil between services....
  11. You will miss the LC..... :crybaby:
  12. Yes we get no freebies and it will cost me a gallon of petrol just to take it to their garage and come back...
  13. Guys, I just think its better for the OP to get an overall response to the problem.... Cheers Nick
  14. most helpfull acetip, the guy asked if anyone's car used oil, I replied that mine didn't so at least he now knows it is not the norm, and if you want to be sarcastic there is only one 'l' in helpful..
  15. My 2005 2.0lt auto which has done 55k does not use any additional oil between its annual service..
  16. Steve, a breakers yard or checking on fleabay is going to be your best chance of finding one...
  17. Found this on the internet.... In Spain it was known to have an injector problem that caused the engines to stop or run slowly. In extreme cases it could cause permanent damage to the cylinder or piston. Dealers were known to change the injectors up to seven years after the purchase of the vehicle.[

    Toyota Dealers

    We have 2 x Toyota's both from Dealers, no complaints about the servicing side or the costs...
  19. Well as Ireland drives on the left I would assume they are....
  20. Try checking your coolant level...
  21. Unfortunately the reason they increase your premium is 'because they can'!!Any other business that has had a poor year has to buckle down and find ways to increase productivity and therefor profits, the insurance companies seem to say they had a lot of cliams so they are forced to increase your premiums in order to maintain their margins!! all you can do is hunt around for the best deal and loyalty goes out of the window. Good hunting...
  22. I get about 400mpg on a run with 90% motorway and 250mpg around town...
  23. With my 2.0lt auto I get about 25 around town and up to 40 on the m/way...
  24. In the Middle East you can buy a sort of black carpet that fits onto the top of the dash, I think more to protect it from the heat as opposed to stop reflections, unfortunately I have never seen them over here, so I guess it's the shades.....
  25. Have you tried going on TLOC (Toyota Landcruisers Owners Club) forum? plenty of info and help on there...
