    My car

    I purchased my 2.2 D4D XT3 in Feb 2007, during this time i've covered 7k miles in 2 months on company useage. The car has been very good on diesel returning 42mpg over town & hard motorway use, the car is confortable and handles very well for a 4x4 with the power to easily overtake slower vehicles. The interior is well built but lacks a few 'extras' like leather steering wheel/gearleaver & one touch elec windows all round - which i'd expect for a 20k vehicle. My main complaint is the rear door! to only have a 3/4 opening (at best) is very poor ...... but overall very pleased & recommended.

    My car

    After 42,000 miles and 14 months its time to say bye bye to the Rav. The car has been fantastic and only due to the obscene price of fuel it is time to have something a little more easier on the pocket, thats not to say the car is at fault. Due to the fuel and a bum twitching moment with a safety camera I have been driving like a saint and have been rewarded with a 47 - 52 mpg average over recent months with my daily 200 mile drive. I have had no major problems with the Rav (nothing to take the ownership enjoyment away) and me and the whole family are very sad to see it go. No more soft roading!! Marshall Toyota of Peterborough have been fantastic especially when it came to part ex for a new Yaris diesel. Hinchcape Toyota Derby have also been great and I look forward to using both dealers in the future. Well done Toyota!

    My car

    This is quite an excellent car. It's good and easy to drive. It has a brilliant diesel and it's quicker than you would think. 40mpg is realistic, even driving quickly. It also looks great.

    There are a few negative points, but they are very minor. The tailgate is heavy, and not for the small or weak. Rear visibility is poor - reversing without park-assist would need concentration. Some dashboard controls are illogical and annoying.

    Overall, though - get one!

    My car

    I've had this model since May06 and have done 20k miles in it to date. I am very pleased with its overall performance - very swift and good torque and ideal for my purposes. I've not had to return it to the dealer for anything but a leaking shock absorber was detected and fixed foc at its recent 20k service. Suspension is a bit harsh over the many rural roads I travel but this was predicted by the salesman and attributed to the large wheels and run flat tyres. Diesel consumption averages 40mpg in line with my expectations. I dread the cost of new tyres which will be needed during 2007. On the negative side, the gearbox is a bit clunky especially in the lower ratios. I have got used to it though and no longer worry about it. I love the built in satnav which is new for me.
