I have driven a rather old toyota corolla for the past 12 months,
and would like to tell you how wonderful it has been to drive. It's
the most reliable car I have ever driven, even thought it is a 1989
car. First time starter EVERY time, even in the cold frosty weather.
Handles well though lacks power steering. Now saving up for a RAV4,
they are gorgeous and so practical. Will stay with toyota's as no
need to change. I think anything else would be a disappointment!

Model - Rav4 XT3, 5 door ,Auto gearbox
I use my Rav4 for commuting, and towing our touring caravan.
From new, I had cruise control fitted by another company, this
is not an accessory you can have factory fitted, but I would recomend
it with the Automatic gearbox. I average about 30 MPG overall, this
includes towing the Caravan at the allowed speeds.
The engine pulls very well, and does not seem to have any problem
towing 1.25 tons of caravan. We have toured the Highlands of Scotland,
and the engine and gearbox handled the hills very well with no signs
of stress or overheating.
The brakes are powerful and progresive, and give a feeling of confidence,
even when towing.
The car is very stable in all weather conditions, and with the
caravan properly loaded, the only difference you feel is that the
car responds more slowly.
Steering the car is a delight. I find it very positive with just
the right amount of feed back through the steering wheel, even on
a downhill, tightening bend, with the caravan hooked on. (I know
you should never get into this situation, but we all get caught
The rear door is a big drawback because it does not open to
90 degrees, this makes loading heavy items such as my wife\'s electric
scooter a bit awkward, but you get used to it.
Both myself and my wife are disabled, and find that the ride and
the seating are very comfortable. With the car being a bit higher
from the ground than a standard saloon, we can slide into and out
of the seats very easily, rather than dropping in, and having to
Because you can either, fold up, or remove, the rear seats individualy
it is very easy to get a good sized load platform tailored to your
My wife also drives, and she loves the car, even round town shoping,
this is because it handles so well in traffic, and she can see more
because of the elevated driving position.
We both rate this car as ****. The extra star would awarded if
the rear door opened fully.

Model - Toyota Yaris Blue 1.3
Lovely little car, very small turning circle, excellent fuel consumption,
drives very well, loved the display panel.
BUT - I hated it. One of my friends summed it up when he said it
had no character. I am selling my 6-month old Yaris and buying a
