Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Toyota Avensis estate?

The Avensis Estate is as reliable as every other Toyota, so we've little to report here, other than the make's high placing in JD Power surveys over the years, which confirms just how much owners love their cars.

There have been a fair number of recalls to remedy faults, though. These include imbalance under braking, curtain airbag faults, problems with the steering, the vehicle stability control system and also the suspension. A Toyota dealer will be able to check their records to see if your car has had all the work it needs - if not, they'll do it for free.
