  1. How do I change the irritating woman’s voice on the Sat Nav. Otherwise I love my new Aygo X play. (Took delivery on 22nd March 2018.)

    1. Hi Michele,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately, the voice cannot be changed on the sat nav.
      Thanks.

    1. Hi Jeff,
      The ‘SHIFT’ light usually means you need to increase your gear. Many thanks.

    1. Hi Reg, sorry to hear you’re having bluetooth troubles. What phone are you trying to connect? If you could talk us through the steps you’re taking, we’ll talk to our tech team and see if we can find a solution!

  2. I got my Aygo X-Cite last Thursday. I was coming from an older Aygo. It feels like such an upgrade. I’m loving it.

    I also had great service from Peterat East Kilbride Toyota!

    1. Great to hear about your new Aygo Stephen. Thanks for your feedback. Feel free to post a pic on our Facebook page.

    1. Thanks for your post Martin.
      Decisions, decisions . . . hard for us to know what to say here Martin. The Yaris Trend is proving extremely popular among our customers. Perhaps you should just pop along and test drive an Aygo? No obligation and after driving it might help make the decision for you!
      Hope we have helped.
