Toyota Auris 2.2 D-4D T180 5d (2007/07) - Owner Review

The high seating position makes it very comfortable and easy to get in and out of. It is small on the outside but very spacious on the inside. Has a fairly decent size boot too. Wing mirrors fold right in.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£12,750

When did you buy the car?
May 2008

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes I most definitely got a good deal as I had two cars in mind from two different dealers and they kept bringing the price down to entice me to buy with them. It was a hard choice as both cars were good value but the colour of one (Silver Steel) won over the other (Ixion Blue).

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Bought this car as it was the most comfortable to drive.

What was the dealer like?
Both Dealers worked hard to get my cash, but then they would wouldn't they, that's what they're there for. Dealer I eventually bought from was very efficient and customer friendly.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's lovely. Has a slight roll but nothing unbearable. Light to drive and don't feel stressed after driving like I used to in my Series 1 BMW. It is a very quick car on the motorway as it is a 2.2 Diesel and around town, if you follow the green arrows and shift gear when indicated it does well on fuel.

What's it like to park?
Pretty easy as it is really is quite small. Miss the parking sensors I had on my old car though.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
"Touch wood" nothing as yet and I'm hoping nothing will, I've heard Toyotas run and run??

What's most practical about your car?
The high seating position makes it very comfortable and easy to get in and out of. It is small on the outside but very spacious on the inside. Has a fairly decent size boot too. Wing mirrors fold right in.
