What is a Toyota 1Q?  ::)
What a Smart was trying to be
No way, Toyota aren't that expensive.


It's the car that a Smart was trying to be.

Having cleaned yet more dog crap of the back, and given it a bit a a vacuum clean, the stink is starting to get better.

So, road tax is low, about £30 or so I think, and almost 60 mpg ! I'm thinking we might hang onto it as a runabout and see how it goes, 2009 and only 27,500 miles. I'll be looking into repair costs which I think will be pretty high as it may need to go to an official dealer. 60 mpg ! almost as good as my MV6 3.2   ::)

Why do you think it should have to go to Toyota for servicing/repair ? :-\

In my experience independents are fine for mechanical matters, but not good or even don't want to know about something like a wrecked fuel cap cover and release switch, and knackered window motor. Where i live, there isn't a huge amount of choice either.

To be fair, Toyota dealers are generally better than most for the overall experience. Prices aren't stupid either...

Woman next door still has her '06 Yaris main dealer serviced, and apart from the odd bulb etc, it has be as reliable as you would expect :y

To help get rid of odour, put some fresh coffee granules in a bowl leave under the seat, also try a bowl of scented cat litter.

I remember Clarkson driving an IQ. 'No need to worry about crashing it, because it looks as if it's been crashed already'.

Yep, or cut open a bag of charcoal and leave it in there for a while.

True, but the short bloke who dyed his teeth managed to get an Irish wolf hound in the boot in one piece  ::)

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  . . . ?

 


 . . . . well anyway, it's now sitting at the back of the house waiting for V5 after change of keeper from DVLA. It still stinks   ::)

I'll clean several times, and then look into the cost of repairs.

Taxed "£30 !!!!!  :y :y :y)

Insured  ???

Yet to have to put petrol in it, but it sometimes tells me 60 MPG   :o    :o    :o

BUT . . . .


It doesn't have a key, which means I keep losing the fob. I've actually completely lost the spare "key". Nope, don't like it

AND

This bloody stop-start crap. I've not really worked out exactly when it stops, and the engine is so quiet I can't tell whether it's running or not without looking at rev counter. Had a few hoots from behind as a result of not pulling away quickly enough (not that anyone here does that  ::)  )

I may get used to it, I mean it is so cheap to run . . . almost as economical as my last Omega (3.2 MV6)
