  1. This is a known problem with Windows CE, which is the underlying OS in many satnavs. I've had PDAs running CE that had the calibrator built-in and I still use a MIO satnav that came with the screen wildly miscalibrated and required downloading a calibrator application to fix it. I would ask Mr T to calibrate it for you FOC as it's a common problem.
  2. I learned the hard way with my previous (non-Toyota) car that bad injectors seem to come in batches.
  3. It's winter. Your MPG are bound to suffer.
  4. Have you considered a solar charger? I put a panel on my dashboard and it kept my battery in good condition through the months of lockdown when I wasn't driving at all.
  5. My 58 plate D4D SR has a rattly dashboard. It's on the passenger side and any road surface bumpiness sets it off. It's noticeably worse in chilly weather, so I suspect either foam or similar going hard, or joints opening up with shrinkage. Is this a common fault, and is there a known fix for it? I don't want to get involved in dismantling the whole dash and I'm wary of trying to unclip parts made of 12 year old plastic.
  6. I could be tempted - my next car is likely to be a downsize from my Verso - but let's see the performance figures!
  7. I just press the auto button and let it get on with it.
  8. I had just the same problem, only in my case it was a roaring noise between 1500 and 2000 rpm. Mr T told me it was a standard issue with the Verso. He fixed it by replacing the foam seal.
  9. Bluetooth 5 was introduced in 2016, I believe. However, BT5 is backwards compatible so that shouldn't be the problem.
  10. I'm sorry, but my car's seat side cover doesn't seem to want to come off and I'm afraid of breaking it. The tab definitely connects to the same mechanism as the top lever as I can feel one move if I operate the other. Do you have the handbook for your car? What does it say? Seat adjustment is around page 50 in my copy.
  11. The 2nd row seats in my 2008 SR fold flat, but I have to take the headrests off otherwise they get caught on the front seat backs. There's a latch on the top of the seat backs and a tab on the side of each seat. Lifting the latch results in what I think you're getting - the seat back only goes forward a little way. Pulling the tab does the job.
  12. Business users tend to do fewer, longer trips than private users. More motorway runs, fewer school drops. Their mileage is kinder on the car, so the extended service interval makes sense. All the same, I've never seen it either.
  13. Sounds like a glow-plug problem to me.
  14. The tide is turning against diesel. You may find that in a few years there will be towns and cities that will ban diesel traffic.
  15. It does seem to be typical of that engine. Both my present car and the car I drove on test did it. I've got used to it over the past 8 years.
