  1. I should mention, I'm not a SUV guy but I did look at the RAV4, GL,GLX...small Boot that you have to drop the seats down if you want to put anything bigger than a suitcase in and a 2L Engine. Start price is nearly $40k for the GL how Toyota can justify that is beyond me. The other thing is Camry mats, Toyota want nearly $400 I got mine in Super Cheap Auto for $60.
  2. I've been driving Corollas for many years and are great cars but the main reason was I needed more Boot space, of cause the Camry has so much more leg room and a bigger 2.5L engine was a bonus. I chose the Camry Ascent Petrol because it is built in Japan and has everything I need, although it took some time to get used to the Electronic Handbrake because I kept reaching for the Handbrake that wasn't there. The Technology in this car is mind blowing compared to my 2001 Corolla, it takes time to get used to it, I'm still learning. The best feature is the Reversing Camera which makes park
  3. I've been watching Scotty for a while and so glad I did because he knows what he's talking about and not selling you anything. Here's some more excellent advice from the man....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIycEyNci1o Anyone who doesn't know who Scotty is look here. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuxpxCCevIlF-k-K5YU8XPA
  4. I just posted a reply to Motorserves response, which will take a day or two to be shown. In it I posted this video...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Thszl7visBU I also asked them to send me a cheque too.
  5. I find the 2.5L Camry very good, it could be worse, have a look at the American made 2021 Camry...what were they thinking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b46IrnXRmYY&ab_channel=Halterman%27sToyota https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7dElzE61q4&ab_channel=ToyotajeffinRaleigh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8fYNpN18BQ&ab_channel=DriversOnly Of cause steering wheel is on the other side but...Peddle for Handbrake, Washer Stem and Indicator on opposite sides, Spedo in MPH and KPH, Touch Screen sticks out like RAV4 and Corolla, ugly Fin on roof, one arm to hold bonnet
  6. Before I put this thread to bed, I posted my complaint here...https://www.productreview.com.au/listings/motorserve I wanted to alert people to this practice and by the reply Motorserve claims to have done no wrong, as we say...once bitten twice shy. My next oil change is in 6mths time and will be done by Toyota, at the end of the day why would I trust my high tech car to ammeters who can't get the Tyre pressure right. Owner Manual says 240kpa or 34psi for 17" Rims and I've followed this from day one but Motorserve dropped it to 206kpa or 30psi, I have a Footpump I keep in the boo
  7. I rang IAG only to be told, we don't have a number for Motorserve and then was put through two departments and the last put me through to the NRMA who said...We don't own Motorserve, ring them. When I explained the runaround I've been given, he said send an email to Seven Hills Motorserve and ask them to give you the name and phone or email address of the area manager, which I did. Well that was 4 days age and I'm still waiting, I'd better not hold my breath. I did get some Toyota coolant but it took 20 minutes, Went to parts desk but nobody was there. I pressed the button but
  8. So my next question is...Can I trust a Dealership ?
  9. Good advice campbeam, Motorscam Seven Hills is where I took the car. I might sent an email to IAG but I feel it's like complaining to say the Police about the Police and we all know what happens with that. They also give you the "Complimentary car wash and vacuum". I opened the door to go home and there's water on the front seat and in the back. I've washed the car many times with no leaks, When I asked the Manager what the hell is this, he said we use a high pressure hose and sometimes water gets in. I asked why was this left like this ? The Manager said nothing except, I'l
  10. I saw this on TV, I had to laugh when they said to park it outside because if you have it in the garage it might burn your house down.
  11. Thanks for the info Tony, you sure have plenty of supplies there. I will get some Toyota Coolant but that's the only thing I'll touch because I've got another 4yrs of warranty left, so don't want to lose that. Motorscam was once owned by the NRMA but no longer is, because when I rang the NRMA to complain I was told ring Motorscam we don't own it now...they couldn't give a stuff. I always thought the NRMA was for helping it's members but all it seems to do now is collect money...very sad.
  12. Once again guys thanks for your advice, I have no idea what oil was put in my car by Motorscam as it doesn't say on the invoice. The oil filter used is a Cooper cartridge oil filter, is this a good filter as I have no idea. My 2001 Corolla had the oil changed every 6mths and the engine was still going strong at 190,000km, I always use Nulon red coolant too as I never use anything cheap. Not knowing what oil they used is a worry but it had the same oil put in 6mths ago and seems to be ok. My next oil change is in 6mths time and will be done by Toyota and I'll ask about synthetic
  13. A one point I was considering getting a newer second hand car to replace my old Corolla, the downside with this is you don't know how the car has been treated, or has it been in a crash. A new Camry comes with a 5yr warranty and unlimited kms and you get all the new technology and there's plenty of that, I'm still learning.
  14. I have a 2019 Camry Ascent Petrol (wouldn't touch a Hybrid) and there's heaps of leg room. My Camry is the base model it has Android and Apple car-play but I don't use either myself. My last car was a 2001 Corolla, so there's plenty of leg room and Boot space, not to mention the huge advance in technology.
  15. I had a very bad feeling this was a ripoff, it's a wonder they didn't tell me I deeded a fuel injection clean too. You guys are right, I should stick with Toyota for the warranty period and I will do just that. This is why I joined this Forum, to get good advice from people who are not trying to sell me something. So thanks guys for your excellent advice.
