Toyota Auris: A few niggles

Warning lights

A few little features of the Auris are beginning to irritate. There is a warning light on the dashboard centre that’s illuminated permanently. It shows that the passenger airbag is working properly. When the passenger airbag is deactivated, should you need to carry a rear-facing child seat in the front passenger seat, a neighbouring light illuminates.

I don’t think I need to know that safety features are activated – I take for granted that they are unless they’re faulty, and that’s when you expect a warning light to come on.

Average mpg: 46.0
