Avensis Tourer Auto- bought used
Added: 12th of March 2016
I traded in a Saab 9-5 Aero which we had 11 years and never failed an MOT, so sad to see it go. The Avensis we bought had done 16,450 miles, so very low miles for a 3 year old car. It's as spacious as my old Saab and build appears solid. The 1.8 litre petrol engine is smooth and almost silent on tick over and the auto box is very responsive and effortless. The balance of the 5 year warranty (18 months) remains so peace of mind is reassuring. The Toyota dealer in Milton Keynes were excellent and easy to deal with, so Hopefully my local dealer in Bournemouth will equally be a positive experience when I visit for servicing. I've owned all the top German brands and both Saab/Volvo and so far the the Toyota impresses in so many ways. It does everything well and is a very underrated car indeed. Quietly brilliant and solid, and you just feel good, that ones driving a sensible machine that's built for longevity. By owning one for the first time, I can now fully understand why people buy them.
