    My car

    I have really loved this car and sad to see it go after 2 years but it is just a bit to small for a family of 5 with a pushchair and large dog ! Great driving position, gear change and feel although ride can be a bit noisy and bumpy on rough surfaces. Running costs are good ( eg 40+ miles per gallon, fully comp insurance £217 a year ) and servicing reasonable as nothing goes wrong. Highly recommended.

    My car

    I owned a 51 plate when they first came out. Imported it from Holland and had it fully spec'd. Loved the vehicle, it was practical and felt safe to drive - the only BUT, it was a petrol version and cost an arm and a leg to run. I kept this car for 8 months and sold it with nearly 10K on the clock.

    I'm not sure I'd consider another one with the increasing fuel costs, if fuel cost less...then yes, I'd buy another.

    My car

    This car has been very good and pratical for our needs, but be warned if you own any diesels from Toyota Like the 2.0 D4D Avensis or any Rav 4 with the D4D engine you will be facing a large bill due to failure of the the dual mas flywheel that can happen from 50.000 miles on wards and if out of warranty you will face a bill of more than £2000 for the repair check out reviews from the Toyota club.

    My car

    Excellant car for general use. Only problem encountered is a leaking sun roof which main dealer is unable to rectify. Therefore if you are looking for a car with a built in shower - buy a RAV4!
