  1. Probably uses less fuel too
  2. Reliable = toyota. My 2007 has 245000km so far repair other than service parts (brake pads, oil, one headlight globe..) = $0. Nil, not anything, none.

    Where to get 12V?

    I have a 2007 atx. Can anyone tell me where the best place is to get 12V to wire in a 2 usb phone charger? I got a light bar from stedi and when I ordered the correct switch to fit the blank filler things (to the right of the steering column), I also ordered one of their usb ports that also fits those spaces. So I need 12V. Among all the wiring under the dash, are there any I can tap into without messing up anything else?

    LED headlights

    I live in a country area - central nsw and more light is pretty important at night, not just longer distance but wider too. I have almost hit lots of critters, daughter almost hit a black puppy out of town... but with the led bar I now have, we see many more animals on the roadside and can slow down, move over... I also got the brightest halogen low beams to help with the same issue. I think that the problem of blinding other drivers is more about aim than light output - although I suppose really crap lights wont blind anyone no matter how badly they are set up.

    LED Lightbar

    Just fitted a STEDI 3301 light bar on a number plate mount. I used their wiring harness and it was all pretty easy. The trickiest part was getting the wire through the firewall. I live in central NSW and do a bit of night driving and the stock lights are pretty poor. Admittedly I do have oem globes which are much worse than wifes aurion with phillips +120 globes. However, now I have the sun. Long beam, wide spread.

    Transmission U660e

    There is nothing to adjust on the brakes. Possibly the slide pins are rusted and or stuck. Fixing this is about as hard as replacing brake pads.

    Aurion performance mod.

    Where did you get that done, for $250 its a great mod. Was that friends price or just normal off the street customer?

    Transmission U660e

    I used to rebuild commodore transmissions - long time ago. The reasons they died were fluid too low, fluid burnt, damage from hitting rocks...idiot drivers... never from too much fluid. When I drain and refill, I measure what comes out and replace the same and another 100ml - roughly. I am paranoid about the level being too low. I think that the worst thing that can happen with overfilling is that some fluid gets pushed out of the air breather hole and makes a mess. So I always go for too much fluid in a transmission rather than too little.

    Transmission U660e

    I have pentite LV fluid in mine, at the last drain I used it so there is a mix of WS fluid and the Penrite LV. It has been in for a year. That was the 3rd drain and refill and the car has 239 000km. My other Aurion has 120 000km and it has 1 refill of Penrite in it too. Both cars run perfectly. Your symptoms don’t sound like any of the normal problems the U660 has. A guess is that the fluid level is too low. When I drain mine, 2.8 litres comes out each time.
