  1. You can live in the IQ......plenty of room. ......or, Sweet-dentist has a caravan you can share by the looks of things.....
  2. All that money spent, and you still have to change those !Removed! orange indicator bulbs!!
  3. Go on, get yourself a supercharger...........you know you want one..... Love the mirrors btw.
  4. Can't wait for the next recall.....:D
  5. Mine does that, Sir.........******.

    Aux Cable

    I have an i-pod classic 160Gb linked with a 30cm good quality cable. Works fine for me. Plenty loud enough.
  7. I recently replaced my front tyres with Khumo rubber. Totally eliminated the aquaplaning problems....The Bridgestones are !Removed! dangerous, Mine would slide all over if I hit a puddle even at 40ish MPH.

    Spotted

    I parked next to a grey IQ in Waitrose car park in Crowborough today. It was an IQ3 with cream leather seats.
  9. I'm down to 36.7 :( I have been giving it some stick for the last couple of days though.
  10. I've never had any problems like that. Have you tried changing the battery in your key?
  11. There's one main reason that I buy Toyota, that's the fact that they never go wrong. If the reliability record goes, then there's no point in paying the premium. I was quite happy buying Renaults before I got my Yaris, but I've had more trouble from the IQ in a year than I had from my Clio in three. :(
  12. Crap fuel economy. (friend's two litre Mondeo does better!) Crap fuel gauge. Poor interior build and materials. Rattles caused by above. Crap interior light. Very little thought gone into design, eg; rear seat belt stowage, no space for oddments, laughable glove bag, luggage cover etc. .....as you can see, mostly interior related..... apart from that I'm happy enough. Wouldn't buy another though.....or another Toyota.....especially as the climate control is buggering me about already. My previous Yaris gave me no grief at all in over four years, now I'm considering moving next door to my dealer to save on fuel bills!
  13. That's about the same as I get out of my 1.0 CVT. That's mainly on twisty-turney, hilly country roads, with most journeys under ten miles. Did you modify the wheel? I am sooooo jealous on those IQ owner who can drive up to 350miles and getting a 60+mpg figure on a manual one... The difference in official mpg figure between CVT and manual are not as large as the actual figure... I am quite regret to get the CVT version now :( Bog standard wheels, tyre pressures 33psi all round.

  15. ....per gallon?.....that's pretty good isn't it?
  16. It must improve going downhill though, with the caravan pushing the IQ. :D
  17. Concerning the issue of traversing gradients, is it better to put one's foot down and charge up the hill as quickly as possible, thereby burning more fuel for a shorter period of time, or is it preferable to climb the hill more slowly using slightly less fuel, but for a longer time?
  18. Well, I've certainly not got one of those! Mine's got the TRC button and the aux audio input down there. Must be a non-European thing.....
  19. I'm paranoid about my batteries. I always carry a spare in the car, and another in my wallet! Have a Google for watch batteries. You'll find several sites that specialise, and will charge just a couple of quid plus first class post.
  20. I finally got round to spending my £20 M&S vouchers today (the ones from the pedal recall), and thought it would make a fun thread! I bought, Five pairs of socks, four pairs of pants, one bottle of Cassidy's Irish whiskey. I only had to put £2.50 with it, so not bad going! Now I'm just hoping for the next recall. :D
  21. That glove bag is laughable. One of the first things I did was tear it off and chuck it in the shed.
  22. Get a Caterham, and you will learn real pain with the hood press studs ;-)) Rgds Sports car drivers love that sort of thing though.........especially in a sudden downpour. :D Convertable IQ (No press studs though for the hood) ;-)) I would love to see a roadster version. Something along the lines of Smart's Roadster. ....I would put up with a hundred press studs for that.... :D

  24. 1. Central storage box/Armrest 2. Better quality trim 3. Better arrangement for rear seat belt storage. (not just stuffing them through a hole in the side) 4. Better idea for rear luggage cover. (No press studs!) Thanks, Turnip. I like the little joystick btw. :)
