    My car

    I own this car since 2007 and I have made around 50000 miles. The positive things are the cabin is spacious, the steering, the pedals and the shiftgear are light and easy to use. It has kept its value relatively high. But the car is not reliable as a Toyota should be: a blocked brake gear, problem with the gearshift (I couldn't change to 3rd), the thermoshields were clattering so they had to be fastened once again, and there was a leak from the water pump so it had to be changed. The car is not very refined - it's very tiring on the motorway, the engine is not very powerful and the fuel consumption also could be better (for instance, a VW motor is far more frugal). On a long run the best I have achieved is 54, in the city - 36. I would recommend you if you are looking for a good and reliable car to choose between Qashqai and Hyundai i30.

    My car

    I have been driving this car now for a little way. The car is very practical, good size boot, comfortable seats. The auto gearbox can be a little unresponsive at times but the paddleshift makes driving the car fun! All in all a good car that will not go wrong!

    My car

    I took Toyota for a test "spin" last week. Car handles very well, 1.6 engine is responsive, quiet and does very good job for it's class even if you compare to the competition. The gears change is very smooth (again much better than some competitors) and i like "shift" indicator. The car is very comfortable to drive and roomy inside. The driving position is excellent. Maybe the handbrake is unusual and some plastics could be (feel) better quality but who cares? I was interested in 5* NCAP test result. I tested Golf, Astra, Mazda 3 and Focus. My new Auris arrives in few days so can not really comment on running costs.
