  1. for me it's 3 things: 1- the rattles - the centre console on my car creaks and rattles non-stop - all the time, it drives me and the mrs mad. 2- the noise from the suspension - it's very, very loud at times. 3- the cheap and nasty interior plastic quality - my door panels are scratched to buggery from only very light contact, shocking that this passed the QC test.

    Chrome exterior + white interior = the hardest car in the world to keep looking clean
  3. mine has been noticeably noisy since day 1. tbh, I'm sure the Aygo suspension was less noisy....literally my 1st day of driving I remember thinking "*****, that's loud" it may just be normal (as it's ALWAYS been like it) I'll certainly ask Toyota to check when it's serviced next week. I'll also be asking them if Toyota have changed the door panels yet....I want mine replaced (as they're scuffed all over due to cheap plastics used)
  4. So I'm not the only one! my IQ2 makes a horrendous amount of suspension noise when on slightly bumpy roads....I just thought it was normal.....so is it actually a fault? I'll be mentioning that when I'm next in. For the record - mine's been like that since day one....I noticed it immediately. When travelling over packed pockets of ice last month it was horribly noisy.
  5. Hate to say it, but if a little scratch on the dash annoys you, just wait until your seatbelt clip/arm/any part of the anatomy connects with the door trim! :censor: My door trims are tatty as hell already, something I've NEVER had to put up with before.
  6. I'm pretty sure they stay on until you open the driver door, I could be wrong but that's how I remember it happening (though I've never sat in the car at night to test!)
  7. I'm happy to report that after a spate of gear "crunches" (rather than changes) from 3rd to 2nd and an apparently unsuccesful fix by Toyota, after 3500 miles the problem seems to have all but dissapeared.....very odd. it does very occassionally get stuck, but it's very rare now.
  8. is this is true, I will be demanding the door trims be replaced....the garage are well aware how angry I am about the crappy plastic door trim (I had a go at them again yesterday)
  9. BTW - your girlfriend did a real number on your door handle! that's a massive gouge she's ripped out (just above the silver speak mount) shows how !Removed! easy it is to shred the panels. can anyone confirm - do the newer models have plastics that are as easily marked? (though looking at your IQ I assume it's a new model)
  10. that doesn't list as working on plastics......I might give it a try though as it looks like it's removed the "white" from the scratch (which is the biggest eye-sore!)
  11. For me it's only 1 thing, but it's a biggie. Yes, it's the interior plastics.....I want something hard wearing, the current set up isn't.
  12. I would! at best i think they should have made them 3/4 car colour, bottom 1/4 chrome. they're too glaring all one colour.
  13. I believe the rest of the video to be faked (he's loosened everything in that IQ!) but the scratching is very true. you only need to look at some of the photos on this forum to see proof. My driver side door is very tatty already due to scratches from what I don't consider to be scratch inducing knocks.
  14. that video illustrates the problem with scratches perfectly. Look how easily he marks the door panels with light rubs from a finger nail. and those marks are permanent. that makes me shudder to watch!
  15. my centre console is a rattle drum! if you run your finger across the front side you can hear how hollow it is! any bumps in the road and it creaks and groans like mental!
