    Greetings fellow Copen lovers.

    Anyone from Victoria, Australia? I am looking for someone who can competently service a Copen in Victoria.

    Toyota are supposedly the Daihatsu service agents in Australia and my local Toyota service agent has left me less than impressed.

    Help. Otherwise I may have to trailer the car to Sydney just to get a fuel sensor issue dealt with.

    Hy YWAYT,

    maybe someone in the Australian Copen forum copenclub.com can help.

    I service mine at Frankston Toyota - they have a guy there that used to be a diahatsu mechanic - and i cant complain about anything they have ever done-
    They have heaps of rewards for service, and you can even get a courtesy car (for 35 bucks) for the day if you need it while your car is getting serviced.
    I dont know where you are, but ive never had a breakdown of any kind - but a flat tyre once left me stranded, and they provided a tray top truck to pick it up and bring it to get a new tyre -and they were there in 20 minutes - we have a toyota camrysportivo whcih we bought from them and they service too
    Copen costs around 185 to service - and they have been doing it since 2004

    by fuel sensor, do you mean the O2 sensors?

    fuel sensor / O2 sensor

    thanks dwayner.

    Vehicle has been off the road for about 12 months (due to my ill health) just before that I started to suffer power loss issues - but got sick before I could do anything about it.

    It was suggested to me that it could be a fuel sensor issue. I have subsequently sourced manuals but haven't had a chance to chase it through yet.

    As my fine motor skills are still a bit stuffed I would prefer to let a competent copen mechanic give it a thorough going over.

    I have also been unable to open the roof since the last service (or lack thereof) from the local toyota service centre.

    Basically she needs some TLC from someone competent - so thanks very much for your recommendation.
