    My car

    I bought my Verso as an ex demo vehicle with 3500 miles on the clock. One of the most challenging aspects of buying any Verso is to negotiate past the vast price differentials between Toyota main dealers prices, ie £3000 on a vehicle with the same spec, colour and mileage. I would heartily recommend Pentagon Toyota at Rotherham who were realistic, customer focused and true to their word. Big pluses for veratility, driving position and build quality. Negatives are a thirstier than expected 1.8 VVTI engine and the vehicle is slightly under powered for its size and weight. The ride is firm but the car looks great, handles well and the driving position is absolutely fatastic. Enjoy.

    My car

    I’ve had the car since July 07, done about 6000 miles in that time. The only problem so far was defective parking sensors, from delivery, but this was fixed while we waited at the local dealership

    Ecomony – very good. Just come back from a 550 mile round trip to central London – onboard computer says car averaged 50mpg at an average speed of 71mph, so wasn’t hanging about. The 6th gear makes for very relaxed motorway cruising, it just eats up the miles.

    The only negative, if you can call it one, is the lack of storage hideaways. We had a Scenic before, and that was better in that respect (but absolutely rubbish in every other respect). The foldaway seats are excellent – easy to use, unlike with the Scenic, where taking a seat out always a hernia risk. I’ve moved a 42” plasma TV upright in its box with just the middle seat folded flat.

    I’ve noted a couple of comments about the “single” CD player. What people have perhaps missed is that the unit is mp3 CD enabled. What this means is that you can condense and burn at least 8 normal CD’s worth of music on one disc using a PC. The Text feature on the player lets you find the music easily. Therefore there’s no need for a multichanger.

    All in all, I’m very satisfied so far and would definitely recommend this car. The SR version is really worth getting for all the extra kit it comes with over and above the T3, which I think costs more.

    My car

    I just went out to have a test drive the used car 1.8 t3. The salesman almost forced me to buy the car striaght away. Which make me feel very uncomfortable!!!

    I went out to test drive it and power is let down!! No power!!

    But the interior is quite good. I quite like the front layout.

    I am waiting for the salesman to call me. If the price is right, I may still buy one.

    My car

    The Good points are it's quite cheap to buy for an 'auto' and economical too. It has seven seats but not very big outside. It looks quite model and has ESP and lots of airbags. The Dealership I used are quite helpful and I got £1400 off the list price.

    Bad points : the MMt gearbox broke down three times, the quality of the cabin is not good, e.g., plastic easily scratched, steering wheel had to be changed as the top layer was coming off after 30000miles, and hard plastic dash feels cheap.

    The rear light custer was leaking. The MMt gearbox needs getting used to and doesn't creep like conventional autos. Service expensive- £490 for third service incl brake pads changed. First dealer I used was also rubbish.

    Overall, had high expectations but having driven it for coming up to four years a bit disappointed. Would have gone for Honda FRV, Zafria of Mazada 5 if available at the time.
