We are still alive – when we last checked – and are now at Scottish Level 2. We have even been out in the car round the local area. We don’t stop to chat or go to shops, but we do talk to sheep and cattle. They are, however, not great conversationalists.
Our wee Toyota car went off to the garage on 15 March (or thereabouts) and we have not seen it since. The ECU aka, Electronic Control Unit, has failed and they are trying to get it repaired which is evidently turning out to be more difficult than expected. Looking on the web, this failure seems to be very common amongst the various Toyota models and seems like it is a bit of a weak point. This rather goes against the eulogistic view of Japanese cars so often expressed in the media.
