I got a very good from my local dealer and for the first time in my driving life, I am unable to find real fault with my own choice.
I have 2 young children and although I rarely use 7 seats the overall practicality is excellent. The car drives extremely well. My T3 has stability control and it seems to do a very good job, though I've not driven a T2 for comparison. The 1.8 petrol engine wins no races and can get thirsty if pushed. However, driving sensibly and keeping cruise set to legal speeds on the motorway, has returned almost 40mpg, at least that's what the computer says. I find that both traction control and ABS come into play earlier than I'm used to but that's not really a criticism.
Overall I'm very pleased with my Verso and would recommend the car and Toyota dealers.
Very good overall,nice and smooth drive,good handling for an mpv,well built and gives loads of confidence that it wont let you down, with the seats down you can get loads of stuff in the back only problem is that it takes longer to stow the load cover than fold the seats, i have the trim 2 and find the seats show marks very easy. Overall a well built car nice to drive and gives an avarage mpg of 40
I test drove this car and a number of others in the range, initially feeling that the Verso would not be the one for me - I wasn't sure about its looks, style, or badge. However, I have to say that it handles very well for a tall car - you can throw it around and it is very responsive.
However, the T180 is something else. There are few things more satisfying than pulling onto a motorway with a high performance, expensive car tailgating you with the sole purpose of leaving you in its wake at the first possible opportunity.
Okay, it was a Lexus 300 but the expression on the drivers face must have been total surprise, as not only was he unable to overtake the T180 but was actually left behind until I had eased off the accelerator, having reached 70mph in no time at all.
The salesman explained that the T180 is as fast if not faster in third gear as the Porsche Boxster!
In an ideal world, I would own two cars, a practical family car like the Verso and a sports car just for my own driving pleasure. I think that this T180 goes some way to solving this problem. I want one!
Contrary to the whatcar.com review, I don't find this car sluggish or too noisy. All aspects of its driving and performance match or exceed the 52-plate Vauxhall Astra I have exchanged it for. Bumpy roads and speedbumps are ironed out nicely, and all-in-all, I'm very pleased with it.
I have yet to try out the after-sales service, but the sales service was fine. I got the car for £900 less than your target price (but then I do train people in sales and people skills).
