Man Claims Eco-Friendly Car Was Eaten by Squirrels

By Gary Cutlack on at

Toyota's latest Aygo is apparently so eco-friendly that some of the rubbers are edible -- leading to one man to claim his car's being slowly eaten away by squirrels.

Croydon man Tony Steeles says he's been spotting teeth marks on some of the car's rubber components for months, telling Auto Express: "The aerial’s been chewed off twice, the oxygen sensor’s been damaged and various rubber-like trim parts have been chewed."

Toyota's been good about fixing it all up, says Tony, plus he's currently foiling nature's plans by keeping the car in a garage. [Standard]
