Putting car into long-term storage?

Answered by CarsGuide 2 Oct 2015

Clean it inside and out and make sure it's dry when you park it in the shed. Leave the handbrake off and put the transmission into Park if it's an auto and in gear if it's manual. Change the oil and filter, and change the coolant if the life limit will be exceeded while you're away. Disconnect and remove the battery, clean it and store it in a clean, dry place. Place the car on stands, remove the wheels and store them flat in cool, dark place. Use a cover made of natural material and the garage is dry and well ventilated. Finally, rethink your plan to store the car; it's a lot of effort for what is an ordinary car.

Toyota Aurion: Is it able to tow a caravan?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Aug 2011

The Aurion is rated to tow up to 1600 kg (with trailer brakes), which should be enough to handle a small caravan safely. Toyota has a factory-approved tow bar for the Aurion, so that’s probably your best bet.

Toyota paint and leather protection

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Jun 2011

I can’t answer your question directly because I don’t know what protection product you are being offered, but you need to understand that it is the dealer who is offering it you, not Toyota. I would ask the dealer why he thinks Toyota’s paint and trim isn’t up to scratch, such that it needs extra protection. Ask also how it works and what it will do for you, and how you would know if it wasn’t doing the job. In my view these products are not worth spending your hard-earned on.

Toyota Aurion 2011: Spare wheel not an alloy?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Apr 2011

You don't have any comeback on Toyota to provide with a fifth alloy wheel, the Aurion is supplied with a steel wheel as a spare, as many cars are. It's a full-sized spare wheel with a full-sized tyre so there's no problem running it for as long as you need.

Toyota Aurion 2011: GPS behind

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jan 2011

It is a problem that most carmakers seem to be suffering from, one they need to address. I would think that, instead of letting cars go with out-dated maps they should check them during pre-delivery and update the maps to the latest available. Seems simple.
