The smart system cannot program not to unlock trunk centrally. There is security concern where some valuable item like laptop, gift, luggage are kept in boot. When you get in or out of car or central unlock to allow passenger to get in or out, the boot is unlock too, and it mean anyone can just open boot and take my stuff... you will know why it is concern if you drove in Malaysia... I ever have someone trying to open my boot when I still in car!  He just walk away because it don’t have “smart” system but I did not Chase after as nothing lost and is in Malaysia. 
From security point of view,  i don’t see logic why boot need to be unlock when we just want to get in or out the car especially there are so many option to open boot from  fob,  inside car level, press button at trunk with fob. If it is to use for taxi due to airport pick up, then it should be a option to program for user! In other car brand, this can be programmed but not this “smart” Toyota system!

Toyota should recall this smart system to make it programmable! 

So the only gripe you have about your Toyota is the boot locking/unlocking? I am trying to decipher about reading about tens of your posts talking cryptically about some quality and technology issue. Thought you were talking about headunit or electrical problems.

Any other issues?

If get standard edition then no feature to be disappointed... it is mostly because of those too smart features that create the disappointment... Maybe the word elegant is misleading...

Maybe elegant means they give you electronic driver seat and 17 inch rims? 😂

17inch I don’t need.. I just want a quality car and good customer service from BM to sincerely help me resolve my issue... I as a imperfect person can come out of a simple idea to resolve the trunk issue why can’t BM do it for me?

you need 18", then the speedo and actual speed should match closer. 

BM can't solve your problem because they are only a re-seller. They sell cars, not make cars. You should be complaining to Toyota, not BM. Their office is at Tg Pagar. 

Is like asking Harvey Norman to reprogram your Samsung TV.

Anyway, regarding the speedometer inaccuracy, they are allowed up to 4% discrepancy under a standard, SAE J1226. And under the EU requirements of UN ECE Regulations 39, the speedometer cannot be slower than actual speed. So in short, they are allowed to +4% actual speed. and it seems that the discrepancy increases with speed.

My car is about 5km/h faster than Waze.

How to check if the speedo and actual speed match?

Actually Speedo slower better right, so traffic camera wont speed over the limit.

My one standard version, never check before. 🤣

If only 4% mine already over so much.. at 70km/h, 7-8 km/h different.. 10%... so they breach any regulation?

Hi,

Quick question, which is the best or better Borneo motors SC in SG? I so far went to Leng Kee and Pandan. I honestly think Pandan a bit better in servicing, but LK probably has a nice cushy place to sit and relax.  Any thoughts on this?

What do you mean by better servicing le? In terms of the service advisor who attend to you, or the way the workshop mechanic handle your car? :huh:

The technical part of servicing the car, good identification of problems etc, more like the technical competency of the mechanics there.

I think  BM Charge even more expensive to update...  the moral of the story is world have changed with phone gps which is more accurate updated and free... yet car company still Want to come with their proprietary gps.. and still hope to earn money.. 

not sure Toyota smart keyless system is secure from relay attack? So many car affected including Toyota.. if they still use the hacked smart system for Altis.... then really hopeless this company... I hope they know technology adoption got to be latest and not get older tech... security vulnerability need to patch or fix regularly.... 

How much BM charge to make it even more expensive to update than $300.  Can your phone GPS work inside tunnel?
