^^ update 5/2/11 - Conrods now bent. Nobody died. :) RIP test subject #2

Test subject 3 now slotted in :D

I have never drawn up closely to the car in front at traffic lights with the intention of buffering up.

Good question, i've no idea :P

Ill be having yet another 'experience' of this car in a few weeks so ill keep a lookout :P

we've nicknamed the car the tardis cos it's blue and definitely is bigger on the inside. I've been guilty of keeping a door open and looking inside 'big' stepping back around the door 'little' and stepping back forward to see the inside 'big'.

Yaris, Matiz, Jazz etc are never going to rivet a petrol(in my case diesel) head, but dash aside they're allright.

I guess my searches for Yaris instrument panel images aren't being too successful!

Here's another style which appears to have been used:

With going on holiday for two weeks tomorrow, I can't find the time to do a photo. I am very slow with this Parkinsons thing, sorry. Am taking my iPad mini with me so I night be able to do it there. This is all new to me so I am very slow.

Cropped a little and reduced:

And a closer view:

They certainly seem to have gone through some variations of this display.

Okay I have grown to like it a bit more now. It certainly drives well and after all what more should you ask of a car?

Having said that - it's battery just collapsed. £60. It is an unhappy car.

The Yariss has an obscure electrical fault. The dealer I got it from is completely out of his depth with it. The electrics keep going dead for no reason, and often recover several hours later, but not always. He just fitted a new SMALLER battery, saying the one fitted was too big and was causing the trouble. I don't think so.

An oversized battery won't suddenly make everything go dead, and then sometimes just recover with no further intevention. It sounds more like there's a loose connection somewhere on a major feeder (feed to a main fuse panel, connection at ignition switch, or similar, depending upon how much of the system is affected).

It was built in France. Sometimes the entire electrical system is dead, sometimes everything is live except when you turn the key to ignition, nothing happens except that everything goes off.

Sometimes all the doors will lock and unlock, sometimes just the driver's door responds.

It is not a remote control but the key has to have a programmed thingy inside or it won't work.
