  1. I can't do that with my 2020 JBL. It peed fuel out of the filler!😯
  2. My 1.4 2005 Corolla has never drunk oil. I think Cryker is correct. It's the bigger engines that have the problem.
  3. You can't rely on the MPG readout to be accurate. Only way to get true figure is to fill to brim, drive, and then fill to brim taking note of how much fuel you've just put in.
  4. I was going to fill up my car with petrol. Lots of driving to do the week after the end of the world.
  5. I'd guess this was caused by a previous owner putting their lighter there. Sliding across the plastic and scratching it every time they turned the wheel.
  6. I drive like an undertaker, so I have no idea what any of you are talking about!
  7. I get around 360 - 380 miles from a tank full before I get the light. I don't fill up very often, unless I'm doing a long trip. Put 20 litres in at a time these days. Less weight to carry around. 2005 Corolla T3 1.4
  8. I'm shocked that the Auris doesn't have a button to lock all the doors, like the Corolla does. Backward step?
  9. Toyota Insurance was more than double what my current insurer quoted me. For me, it just wasn't worth it.
  10. HI Clagnuts Just out of curiosity...if the throttlebody was clogged up...how would one fix it??? Im thinking spraying a can of Wynns Carburettor cleaner may be??? Sammy That's exactly what the break down guy did to my old Skoda when it had these symptoms. It was temporary fix, I did get it stripped down and cleaned more thoroughly by a garage a few weeks later. I have no idea if the Corolla has the same sort of throttle body. It was just a suggestion of what it could be.
  11. 2005 1.4 T3 Corolla, renewed in October for £193 fully comp.
  12. Are they changing the centre dash layout? The Yaris I had yesterday was brand new 60 plate with 1700 miles. I thought that was the latest version. Not just the centre dash that I didn't like. The quality of the plastics in the cabin seemed very cheap and nasty to me. While I was waiting to collect my Corolla, I had a look around the new cars in the showroom, and the same sort of cheap plastics were on other cars.
  13. Took my Corolla in for a service today. They have given me a Yaris TR as a courtesy car, and I really don't like it. Biggest gripe is the speedo in the middle of the dashboard. I also think the plastic trim feels very cheap. The centre console wobbles about! Last year I got an IQ car to play with, and I think that was much better. Is this the way new Toyotas are going? Is the cheap trim to save weight? I understand making the speedo in the centre means they don't have to change it for RHD/LHD vehicles, but it just feels so unnatural to me. Glancing to the left to see what speed I'm doing.
