Twitchy town car.
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Blue 5dr MMT (Review date: 21st January '13)
Owned from new and now 2 and bit i thought entitled to say a few things.
Pros... Cheap to run fuel and tax outstanding, dealer service good although not had to pay anything yet due to the up front servicing, but don't expect them to be to expensive. Good round town, shopping and especially the parking.
Cons... Steering twitchy liable to over steer, auto box hunts for correct gear far to often for my liking, small boot, long journeys a bit tiring.
Overall... Good experience, no major problems, very economical, if your retired and only need one car, or a family that needs a second, it's well suited to either slot.
Economical and nippy
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Blue 5dr (Review date: 26th April '12)
Brilliant little runabout, very economical on fuel, road tax and insurance, but has been good on longer rums and is responsive and nippy when you need it.
Boot space is limited, but back seats fold so has still been OK and takes a full weekly shop. Has been a first class small second car, but have used for work too. Ace to park, even in somewhat narrow car park spaces.
Toyota Aygo - minimal running costs with maximum practicality

Fun and practical
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Blue 3dr (Review date: 25th February '12)
This is our second aygo blue we just love this car it always surprises our friends with how much we can get in it, with the seats down I've transported a chest of draws with the seats up I've taken me and my mates to the football (non of us are small chaps) and there's never any complaints about leg room. As for the handling it's great fun round corners and surprisingly fast upto 40 I have great fun beating bigger cars at the lights (much to there annoyance). All in all a great little car that is both fun to drive economical and still quite practical. Mileage ranges between 330 miles going through town upto 400 miles if you do a lot of motorway miles. The first car we had for two years and we put nearly 35000 miles on it in that time we only replaced the tyres. This one has done around 15000 and we've just replaced the front tyres
TOYOTA AYGO BLUE 1.0 LITRE
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Blue 5dr (Review date: 13th February '12)
Built to a price, cheap to run - tax, fuel, insurance, all low
As you may expect lacks power, with a couple of passengers the car struggles to climb even the slightest incline, we have had to replace the clutch after only 29,000 miles (known fault - new larger clutch had to be installed) all in all based on what we paid can`t complain small city car that does what it says on the tin.
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Sport 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
I love this car, its cheap to run, fun to drive, supraisingly refined to drive and quite a good looking little car. First off dont be put off by the "city car" lable its perfectly good on the motorway with enough go to keep out of trouble and quiet enough that you dont need to shout when cruising, which i think is pretty amazing, considering the price and size. Its built to a buget but i think they have the balance perfect, theres nothing more i want from this car a little more space would be handy on holidays (but thats mostly down to all the baby equipment... and baby) but youd be supraised what you can fit in, i went for the sport because of the split fold rear seats. Also mine came with the very rare leather and alcantara seats which make it feel much more plush inside. As for the driving i realy enjoy it, its got just enough go and quite a nice engine noise from the 3 cylinder engine, and handles pretty well. Also i fit in the back and at 6'3" thats quite impressive but id need an average size person sitting infront of me, in short there is room for 4 normal size adults. Cant fault this car, it does it all and for very little money. only thing i could say is that the aygo is more expensive than the c1/107 but it also holds the value better and in my humble opinion is a better looking car.

Aygo Black after 3 years
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Black 3dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
The Aygo is a good little car but certainly not perfect. It is cheap to run with good economy and £20 road tax. It is small and easy to park.
Mine is a 2 door and back seat space is tight. Four full size adults may not wish to take long journeys. Front space is good. The engine is willing but needs to be revved for best results. Consider fitting a rev counter.
The ride is a little firm but this allows decent handling at speed. Gearbox and brakes are good.
My niggles mostly relate to cost cutting. For example there is no courtesy light switch on the passenger side door. Rain from the back hatch runs into the boot space (very small) on opening.
A very good car for 2 people. For large luggage to be accommodated the rear seats need to be folded down.
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i + 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
Great little run-about, cheap and cheerful. Amazing amount of space for such a small car and handles well. Quite nippy given the size of the engine.
Our's felt as thought it wouldnt last long and in 4 years the heater fan broke, a back window fell out, it needed a new clutch (never had clutch problems with previous cars) and a wheel bearing went. We had only done about 30,000 miles.
My 3 aygo review
TOYOTA AYGO 1.0 VVT-i Blue 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
This is the 3rd Aygo we have owned and can't really fault them.
We bought the first in 2005, a 3 door sport version in red.
In 2008 a Platinum 5 door, and my recent 2011 aygo in blue with air con and blue tooth.
Apart from servicing them, i have only had to buy a front set of tyres, due to the mileage.
I always got my 1st service done at toyota as it was only cheap, the 2nd, i have learnt to try other garages that deal with only toyota cars eg (Toyotech in Stockton) who are cheaper, but then get Toyota to price match, which they have done.
Saying that i have had servicing done at toyotech and been over the moon with it, and their price.
Excellent fuel consumption,cheap insurance, low or no road tax.
I work my Aygo and always have done, its no slouch either, forget all the top gear reports. Mine is mainly short journeys but as no trouble going from north to south.
Big cars hate been overtook by my little 3 cylinder engine aygo, I just laugh and smile to myself.
My tip, buy a 5 door its easier to get the shopping in.
My future car, unless anything more ecomical comes out at roughly the same price will be a GUESS, A aygo or poss Toyota IQ, only because my kids have their own cars now.
ps I dont work for toyota.
