Steer­ing/sus­pen­sion

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Toyota Aygo -

If the elec­tric power steer­ing be­comes heavy, chances are the Koyo ECU has de­vel­oped a fault (it’s in­di­cated by the fault code ‘C1554’). If you’re buy­ing sec­ond­hand, it’s eas­ier to re­place the whole col­umn (from around £60), oth­er­wise the ECU can be re­paired by the likes of BBA Re­man for around £175.

Be­ing such a light car – it weighs just 820kg – sus­pen­sion com­po­nents last well. How­ever, tyre wear has been an is­sue, as have noisy wheel bear­ings – they don’t seem to last very long on the Aygo.
