  1. Sorry but I now reckon that the Aygo is well overpriced for what it is. . . .
  2. Cheapest Insurance found in 2010 & 2011 - Hastings Direct. Even so, cost has increased by 21 percent. . . .
  3. It is in the maintenance schedule for diesels only - at 10 years or 150,000 miles and it's a timing belt, not a timing chain. Failure to change the timing belt could result in a catastrophic engine failure and great expense. But in no way would I spend £900+ for a belt replacement - that must be more than the value of a car with that mileage ! I would sell the car now, before the timing belt snaps. . . .
  4. Aygo Blue seems to have been removed from Toyota's range. Weird - it was a popular model although the bump strip that runs along the centre of the doors has been removed on recent Blues and it doesn't look as good as 2009 models. They've become too expensive anyway....
  5. Your comments are always biased... ...I know that you have shares in that farm shop. . . .
  6. I've said it before and I'll say it again . . . . New Aygo's are overpriced for what they are. . . .
  7. The money that the Aygo owner actually receives may be somewhat different. . . .
  8. Me too. My discs were replaced under warranty (free of charge) at the 12 month service. They had only done 5000 miles. Owners should remember that disc warranty expires after 18 months. . . .
  9. I believe that a new Aygo has become over-priced in the last two years. I own an Aygo Blue but I would not buy another one at today's prices. £9750 for a 3 door Blue is simply not worth the money. Sorry all Aygo fans but that price should be nearer £8250. . . .
  10. I get 48 mpg but I only do very short, stop/start runs to work / supermarket. I never empty the fuel tank, I always fill up after 250 miles on the trip meter. . . .
  11. New prices have gone up yet again - to £9548 from £9460 for the 3dr Blue. Such a small increase doesn't seem worthwhile - I'm sure that the VAT increase in Jan 2011 will be much bigger. . . .
  12. I only get 45 miles per gallon - but I only do very short stop/start journeys, mainly to work, in a 30mph zone. I'd be better off with an Aygo Electric Blue. . . .
  13. I regret to disappoint my fellow Aygo owners but I was dismayed when I noticed that Whatcar Magazine had seriously marked down the second hand value of Aygos since I last consulted their listings a few months ago. Toyota Aygo Hatchback 1.0 VVT-i Blue 3dr: £9,460 New £5,325 1 year old (44% depreciation) £4,350 2 years old (54% depreciation) £3,550 3 years old (63% depreciation) £2,825 4 years old (70% depreciation) . . .
  14. There's only one accurate way to measure fuel consumption: Fill it to the brim so that you can actually see the fuel level and zero the trip meter. Travel about 300 miles. Fill it to the same level again, read the trip meter and calculate consumption. Fuel blobs are unequal and inaccurate. . . .
  15. That's great - saving money on the face of it... but anyone with an Aygo less than three years old (or less than five years old if they bought it more recently) would invalidate their Toyota warranty. Toyota stamps in the service book will also increase the re-sale value of the car as well as making it easier to sell - so self-service maybe a false economy. . . .
