Toyota 1Q?
« on: 04 June 2018, 22:46:00 »



My brother in law died over the weekend, completely expected, not out-of-the blue or anything.

His estate consists of eff-all. No Will, sod all in the bank, no real assets, nothing that requires probate. However he has a Toyota 1Q 2009 with really low mileage. I drove it around today. I've not driven a car with all the modern Gizmos. It's a small car, but parking sensors, air con, sat nav, CD/USB player. FFS it even tells you when to change gear! BUT the fuel cap cover has been forced open, and the drivers windows motor is knackered, window has brown tape keeping it up. And it stinks of dog. But I'm just tempted to keep it   ::), after a good clean-up

Any thoughts on this car ? Things to watch out for  . . . ?

A lad at work has one. He's never complained of anything. I think a lot of cars these days nag you when yo change gear .... its all to do with economy. He's about 6' 2" & 18 stone ...... he looks like Mr Incredible when driving it  ;D ;D ;D

I'm not small, but seem to fit in ok with some seat adjustment. I was quite surprised.

Ask yourself, why do the indigenous taxi drivers use Toyota's..  they go on for ever.

So, yesterday I drove the car from BILs to my house. Now, BIL was an odd bloke, kinda hippy-ish to say the least, with a very different view of the World.

Driving the car was fine, but the stink ! Started looking through the back, rotting food, sandwiches, cakes, apple cores and . . . . . dog poo ! Amazing.

I don't think they do any more TBH.  Toyota are no more or less reliable than anything else now, ignoring the seemingly troublesome D4D diesel lump.

Not in the car, but we've been having to clear out his flat . . .  ::)

In amongst the mountain of crap in the back was an empty engine oil bottle, in the well that has the jack etc was all the oil . . . .

At least that bit will never rust! ;D

I had a Toyota .. Aygo, I think it was, or iQ - one or the other - pull up as an Uber when I was in Bratislava, "I'll never fit in that," I thought, at my heaviest of ~30st..

But actually, it felt roomier than the Range Rover that pulled up the next day (driven by someone I can only describe as "hookerish" and which had all the airbag covers taped shut with duct tape after they had clearly deployed!).

Yes. Smarts are expensive when new.
