Your Quotes

“Very practical and amazingly economical for its size. I think it's handsome from the side, but the front - especially the grille - is awful. Comfortable and reliable.”

Mr Brian Gilbert - Oxfordshire

“First class ride and ease of use of all the controls, together with the Toyota build quality and finish make the Avensis a good buy.”

Mr David Chitson - Oxfordshire

“Not exciting, but comfortable, reliable and economic transport.”

Mr Michael O’Brien - Surrey

“It has proved to be very practical and amazingly economical for its size. It is quite handsome from the side and rear, but I just can't get to love the awful front frontal appearance (that grille!). It is reliable, comfortable and does everything you want - except for parking, where the lock is poor.”

Mr Brian Gilbert - Oxfordshire

“Great car but also the first in fourteen years to need work under warranty. Toyota's crown is slipping in my eyes.”

Mr Roger Jackson - Essex

“A good family car. Well built, goes OK and good to drive. It's comfortable and practical too. The only niggle I have is the road noise. It's not load, just always there in the background at volume level that more than it should be. I'm also impressed by Toyota as a company. They've looked after me as a customer.”

Mr Wayne Mandell - Leeds
