52-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

The most practical and versatile car I have ever owned. Love the high driving position, the removable rear seats and the sheer space. Diesel is not a natural racer, but ecomony is pleasing at 42mpg over 30k miles. Major fault was total clutch fail at 65k approx 2 months after warranty and no help from Toyota UK at all.

Excellent family 4x4, with great fuel economy at an average of around 45 mpg. Dealing with rear seat tipping.removal can be a bit tricky and it can be a slightly noisy ride, especially when the back is empty.

Gets attention only to get it through the mot each year. I only do 2-3k per year (I ride bikes 36k per year). fuel consumption is secondary. low repair bills are more important.

It has never let me down and is a joy to drive and a very comfortable ride. It is a bit heavy on petrol but I don't do a high mileage and use my car for pleasure.

08-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

High driving position and ease of getting in and out is good for us oldies. Think 17'' tyres are cause for some of the road noise and bumpy ride.
