Suddenly, It’s 1998 If ever a transmission made the case to Save the Manuals, this is it, and to illustrate the advantage of shifting for yourself with this car, we took identical top-of-the-line Yaris SE models, an automatic and a manual, to the test track. Begin by pressing the ‘Menu/Select’ knob, select ‘SETUP’, then select ‘GENERAL’, and select ‘Clock’ from the onscreen menu. On the following screen you can cycle through the hours and minutes, set minutes to 00, and also amend the 12- of 24-hour time format. The Verso is now a quiet, lean, comfortable and altogether likeable people carrier.
After setting the minutes, wait another 5 seconds to confirm the time. For all its durability, many will consider the dashboard to be a touch too dominated by the staid plastic-looking fascia. It is not in keeping with the level of engineering quality found elsewhere on the car. Not Just a Prettier Face Major powertrain upgrades are expensive, of course, so they rarely occur at a midcycle freshening. Remember that if you’ve any query as to the operation of your Toyota, feel free to pop in at your local dealer for help from their trained technicians or contact us on social media and we’ll try to help! Other technologies that produce automatic transmissions are the conventional automatic transmission and continuously variable transmission. Chassis improvements include additional spot welds to enhance body-shell rigidity.
Operation under E mode The E mode functions as the D gear in a full automatic car. Adjusting the time using in-car menus On models like the Avensis and Verso, the clock is part of the instrument cluster’s multi-information display. To adjust these clocks, you need to use the steering wheel buttons to access the correct settings menu. This is achieved via partially engaging and slipping the clutch. The hours will be highlighted, and each press of the ‘DISP’ button will advance the clock by one hour. This overrides the computer setting and E changes to E1/E2/E3/E4/E5/E6. To stop the manual override under E mode, pull and hold the + flap on the steering wheel, until the E1/E2/E3/E4/E5/E6 changes back to E. Alternatively, wait for the next computer activated gear change.
