I'd suspect that Corolla isn't even broken in yet.
I had your one in mind when I was buying it!

Cigarette lighter isnt working so no phone charge ..and its not the fuse cos the radios on the same fuse and thats working.

Gonna stick my own stereo in it though which has a USB port ..maybe that'll charge the phone as well

Gf in Wales, I'm heading down there on the weekend. Engine light has come on the car (2002 WV Polo). The light is steady, not blinking. Ok to drive around for a few days and drop it into the garage on Saturday?

That light is fault in basically any sensor in the car that is connected to the OBD network in the car. (basically like a nervous system for cars that is accessed through a weird port).
It could be anything. Lidl/aldi might have fault code readers in this week. Otherwise I'm not sure I'd risk it based on how many things it could be.

The left-hand door of my car is totally scraped and dented... I probably need to get it replaced and am dreading how much it will cost. I scraped it turning into my own effing drive way,

i once paid €800 to fix damage to the front wing, both passenger side doors, and the rear wing. passenger door was badly dented enough to impede the window operating. a chap based in D15 did the job.
