Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Toyota Verso MPV?
When it comes to customer satisfaction surveys, the lower half of the league table is somewhere Toyota just doesn't go. Indeed, the Japanese company traditionally occupies a podium position, and strong results for the Corolla hatchback and impressive build quality bode well for the Verso's future.
It hasn't been without its faults, though. As you'll see on the Vehicle and Operator Safety Agency website at www.vosa.gov.uk, there have been recalls to deal with faulty airbags. In some instances, the passenger bag has gone off on its own, while more worryingly, some airbags have failed to deploy. Ensure that the vehicle you are looking for has complied with any recalls it may have been subject too.
However, the good news is that, so far there is little evidence of any recurring mechanical problems. But, as always, check all electrical components fully and pay attention to the gearchange and clutch.
