THE FAMILY WORK HORSE

TOYOTA COROLLA VERSO 2.2 D-4D TR 5dr (Review date: 13th August '14)

4.3

The Toyota Corrolla -Verso seems to be very under rated against some of its competition, we have really enjoyed this car and its been trouble free motoring all the way!

We have run this car for around 7 years, its been to France and all around the UK on holidays, its transported 3 kids and our bikes to the park. Its amazing how many time 7 seats come in once you have them!

Our TR version looked the part with alloys, privacy glass and in gun metal grey. Auto wipers, bluetooth and ipod dock etc.

Plenty of power in the 2.2 D-4D engine.

Struggling to find fault, its done 100k and apart from servicing, breaks, tyres and a fuel filter clean, cost us nothing but fuel and water.

TOYOTA COROLLA VERSO 1.8 VVT-i T Spirit 5dr (Review date: 11th August '14)

4.3

Its a Toyota! so its reliable, comfortable, adaptable. The 1.8 VVTI with its slightly lower gearing than perhaps should be, doesn't need many gear-changes and will pull happily from 1200rpm. If you do invoke the VVTI section then its very quick! MPG could be better for a small body, but to be fair I'm often loaded, so average 38 on shortish runs is acceptable. The only downside with the 1zzfe engine is OIL. It needs to be checked very regularly because it can use it at up to 600mile per litre. Mine runs around 800 to the litre.

Some have trouble adjusting the dash panel lights. But its easily done by push the mileage trip lever and hold for several seconds.

Very useful are the two child seats that pop-up from the rear outer seats. Current tyre is a set of Chinese tyre that wear very well but skittish in the wet and with the power can spin the front wheels if your not gentle on the throttle. My T spirit has the built-in sat nav/radio/cassette/CD player. Not seen that on others, so maybe it was a special introductory offer.

Don't buy it unless you want to spend loads of money on oil.Toyotas are practical and reliable but most of then come with defective engines expecially vvt-i spirits and after 40,######## you will be spending a lot of money on oil.At the moment toyota are facing a lawsuit in america because of this issue.

i.e.

/toyota-scion-engine-oil-consumption-class-action-lawsuit

So the choice is yours, am about to get rid of mine.

TOYOTA COROLLA VERSO 1.8 VVT-i T Spirit 5dr (Review date: 18th July '14)

4.3

This is the first version with 5 seats. The rear row is removable which creates a van like interior. The result is extreme flexibility. My car has the combined Sat/nav,radio,casette, CD, system which have have not seen on others, yet.

Gearing is slightly low but with the torque from the 1.8 its rarely necessary to invoke the top rpm. The downside is that cruise at 70 mph is 3300 rpm and a little noisy, but push past to say 75 indicated and it quietens down.

Expect 33mpg local running in winter and 36 summer. long runs will get 42/44 mpg.

Reliability has been everything the Corolla became renowned for. Top class. Ride and road holding very good but fit decent tyres!

The only negative is the oil consumption on the FE engine. Don't run it to high and check it regularly. Mine has completed 102600 miles.

Nightmare car despite perfect seating arrangement

TOYOTA COROLLA VERSO 2.2 D-4D TR 5dr (Review date: 8th July '14)

2.5

After a massive battle with toyota we had engine replaced at about 86k miles, now only a few thousand miles (and a new clutch) further on, we now have copious amounts of smoke again and a car that won't start with several people pushing it! Seating is perfect for our needs as we only need all seven seats a couple of times a year but the trouble we've had is horrendous, it's not really fit to tow much more than a skateboard either!! Don't bother! We're looking for a galaxy or s-Max now :-((

TOYOTA COROLLA VERSO 1.6 VVT-i T2 5dr (Review date: 15th June '14)

3.8

Bought this car in 2007 and had no problem for 3 years but then the spark plugs and coils started to play. Had it checked by Toyota and many more but no body knows why its damaging coils. runs fine once coil is changed. Some how water gets in and damages the spark plugs and coil but dont know how and why. Otherwise good car.Buying similar again, hope it is not a common fault as very expensive to replace all 4 coils and plugs.

does what it says on the tin.

TOYOTA COROLLA VERSO 1.8 VVT-i T3 5dr (Review date: 7th June '14)

4.8

Most reliable car I've had. Nothing spectacular to say - you put the key in turn, it starts. No trouble at all - a million miles away from the

galaxy, trajet and even golfs which had their issues.

I chose this model because of the built in car booster seats in the back - very practical. I only gave it a 4 for economy because the petrol achieves about 31mpg average, which is ok for its year, but probably low compared to new cars. I will probably only ever buy Toyota cars from now on.
