ok guys can I really not open a window or passenger door from inside with the engine off? Was sitting digesting the manual and someone tapped on the window but could not openit or the door without engine on? Manual says something about assessory mode but not sure what that is or how to activate. any advice appreciated, and no I'm not blond just adverse to manuals!

Can I also ask do you get the lights symbols coming up when side lights and normal lights are on or just the full beam light Indictator? I only get full beam Indictator is that right?

Fabulous, slightly frustrated not had time to play with it much yet hence only 50 miles but looking forward to the weekend, thought I might go play on the m25 for a bit via a few country lanes!very grateful to lordgrover for instant advice. Black is awesome great depth of colour and shine looks wicked especially with the red interior, great head turner parked outside the office! Feeling slightly smug right now .

I' m shocked that these vehicles are being handed over to you guys without even some of the basic controls like "How to cycle through the ignition" being demonstrated!!! Did the salesman show you anything to do with the car whatsoever???

Most of them know Jack, go into a dealer and ask about the headlight washers, what the bonnets made from or about the auto dimming mirror and see what they say.

I don't know what % of their sales are '86s, maybe I'm being harsh, but I think quite a few of us on this forum could do a good training course for these sales people and triple their knowledge in 15 minutes, as Toyota has either not done it or it hasn't sunk in

I can assure you that the manufacturer has supplied all the info that the dealers need but unfortunately there seems to be salesman out there that just don't take the time to read it.

mikaelSE Is your GT an auto?

Im actually really pleased with the sales guys, they were very pleasant and helpful, it was totally my fault I was in a tearing hurry and didnt give them the time to fully explain everything, so really not their fault at all. I went back late yesterday for a more indepth overview which they were more than happy to give. Of course they may well have told me more at the time which went over my head in my excitement just to drive the car!!

I've been trying this too, but no idea mate.
I didnt even realise the car had it! So its supposed to hold the brake when your on a hill while you get on the throttle????

I had no idea about this either - let us know how you get on - assume you are not talking about Autos?
