    My car

    I've had my Aygo for 5 weeks now and can't get enough of it. Even with the diesel engine its get plenty of oomph to get you away at the traffic lights and its amazing how quickly you can hit 90mph on the motorway!

    Inside is spacious, especially for a shorty like me. For a small car, I feel like I'm sitting quite high up which I like. The seats are really comfortable too.

    I'm happy with the quality of the stereo, although I think it would be a nice touch if they'd included a cable to plug in your MP3 player.

    The boot is small but I can still get all my shopping plus a large sports bag in. Given the current heatwave, I'm so pleased the sales guys (who were so friendly and helpful BTW) talked me into getting air conditioning, its been a godsend.

    My only gripe is with the cheap parcel shelf which doesn't always drop down properly, obstructing your rear view. Also, there's no laundry hook to hang your clothes, although I manage by hooking hangers around the rear headrests.

    I love the fact that its not a common car on the road like the Mini has become, and I've turned a few heads, especially with the 'curvy' rear. All in all, a fab little car, which is fun to drive and cheap to run - perfect!

    My car

    I have owned two Yaris before buying this model. It's a bit hard on your rear end, but it's a hoot to drive, cheap to run, and looks cheeky.

    It's also amazing (with the rear seats down) what you can load into it - how about two large step ladders, two tripods, a camping chair, two large gadget bags and other bits and bobs?

    It's a great car to teach your kids how to drive, too (or how not to!).

    My car

    I am truly happy to report that after two years of putting my car through rigorous daily use up motorways and A roads and almost covering 40,000 miles now, I am still extremely happy with my Aygo as the first day I got it. Simply Excellent!!

    It has never once let me down. Starting always first time -even in the coldest and wettest of mornings- Brilliant. Apart from a slight problem with the boot lock which was fixed immediately under warranty, the car has not suffered from any manufacturing faults- whether mechanical or electrical, to date. A testament to Toyota's reputation.

    Running costs are excellent and my local dealership here in Manchester is truly superb. Reasonable rates, willing to price match and moreover, the level of customer service is excellent once again. They even give you a courtesy call to remind you when they think your car is due a service. How wonderful is that? Never had that kind of customer service with BMW-sorry.

    Overall, based on my experiences to date I would not hesitate in recommending the Aygo to anyone. Kudos Toyota!! This is one very happy customer!

    My car

    I bought this car a month ago. Its first long trip was from Lowestoft to Manchester - 261 miles in one go, and it averaged 61mpg.

    On arrival, I had no aches and pains - even more suprising when there were three of us in the car - my wife was in the back and, believe me, if she had not been comfortable we would have known.

    You notice the small engine on motorway inclines, but you just have to work it that bit harder. However, it copes, and is also affected by crosswinds, but nothing dangerous.

    Motoring won't get much cheaper than this - for me, insurance is £185, road tax is £40, and the overall average fuel economy is 55mpg. The cost of the car is under £6000. Service costs for three years are around £350.

    It's a car that puts the fun back into everyday driving. It's basic, but that means there's less to go wrong with it.
