    My car

    This is the best MPV by far. Car Magazines have truly under rated this great people mover. It is fast, easy to drive, fully loaded it does 100m.p.h + all day long, returns 27mpg with a heavy right foot and handles very well. It is also built to last.

    I avoid the dealer network and get ATS and the like to service it and have had nothing go wrong in 58K, in 6 years - Fantastic! Total costs to date £1123 for tyres, brakes and servicng.

    Buy an American or French people carrier - you must be mad! Look at the satisfaction surveys year after year! Come on Whatcar, lets be sensible!

    My car

    The front grille is so low that damage is inevitable on high kerbs and the like. I've had problems with drive shafts, paint failures, the bearings, a noisy centre pillar (creaks and groans), the gearbox, pitted alloy wheels, and the radiator.

    All this on a 51 plate 60k mile car, and Toyota servicing has been disappointing.

    I have been a Toyota driver for the majority of my 35 years, I am disappointed with this car and even more disappointed with the main dealer whose support has been awful.

    By far the best MPV. I've driven Renault Espaces, for example, and they are rubbish by comparison.

    My car

    I have driven both the petrol and the diesel model, and the diesel comes up the winner. With seven passengers and a full load of kit, the Previa was a joy to drive during our last holiday. The only drawback is that it tends to eat front tyres.

    I wouldn't think of buying any other MPV.
