I am just so glad to read about someone else having water problems with their Aygo. I purchased my Aygo from new in October 2006. It went in for its first service and a few minor snagging problems, one of which a water leak. I have had it back to the dealership 7 times to try and have this rectified. I have also had a Toyota Engineer out to the car to try and repair it, all without success. It is now September and I cannot have anyone in the front passenger seat of my car because their feet get wet when the water splashes from side to side and front to back of the vehicle. I have contacted the dealership and Toyota on numerous occasions all without achieving a solution to this problem. It has now been 5 weeks since I last contacted Toyota to get another vehicle as I don't want the vehicle I have. Needless to say I am still waiting for a result. I have been advised by Toyota that I am the only person who has had this fault so it is a relief to know that I am not the only one with a car they don't want because of either the dealership or manufacturer or BOTH in my case. "TOYOTA SPONSORS E4" - TOYOTA SHOULD LOOK AFTER THEIR OWN CUSTOMERS INSTEAD OF SPONSORING TV STATIONS. I would never recommend anyone buying a TOYOTA as they have no customer relation skills and are not interested in their existing customers.
How can you possibly in this day and age make a car without a courtesy light on the passenger's door, I think I'd rather have this than electric windows.
That said and it being the reason for me not buying this car for six months it is a nice little car.
The car is an 07 and has done only a little ove 1000 miles being used mainly for shopping and even just for this use the boot is a little small.
Monouverable, nippy, economical the auto box takes some getting used to but is great fun and using manually is fun too.
Seats are comfortable and the car is easy to get into and out of even if you are not as flexible as you were.
Travelling at 70 is no problem and the lack of Tacho and temperature guage mean there's less to worry you.
Back seats do not fold flat which is a real problem which we had not realised as we cannot transport the dogs.
After saying all that the car is fun and inexpensive to run and the dealers seem to manage to retain service staff
I bought the Aygo in order to save money - my only regret is that I didn't do it years ago! I'm getting an easy 60mpg (less than 10p per mile on fuel) and after 6 months and 5000 miles the car is faultless.
Clearly, don't buy an Aygo expecting some kind of luxury vehicle, but for low cost, comfortable and reliable motoring I am thrilled.
I have the automatic version which makes my journey to work (countryside and city) really relaxing. The auto was very jerky when new but is now alot smoother. The ride is pretty smooth and is great fun - nippy in town and it keeps up on the motorway without any problems. The 5 door version makes it The air con works well. The lack of a glove compartment lid is a shame - it is impossible to hide items like sunglasses without putting things into the boot - cost cutting one step too far. I don't drive the car when its rained alot, as I find it skids about a bit - maybe a manual version would give a bit more control. Economy is brilliant - I fill up so infrequently and the 'pips' on the fuel display go down so slowly - buy this car if you want to travel without big bills, but I think there are other small cars that have more to offer on the inside. I find it a very useful second car.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
