One of my neighbours is selling it, let me taken it for a quick spin this morning. It's auto and exceptionally light to steer, so I'm thinking of buying it for woman to take some of the driving load off me.
Downside is its big mikes at 137k. Plus side is its one owner, genuinely immaculate in and out, full Toyota service history, and cheap. The interweb abounds with tales.of high mileage ones, so it would seem they last exceptionally well if cared for, but I'm wanting to know what they're like to live with.
Our taxi drivers have them. They say they are great for round town but if you have a long journey they'd rather have a diesel. The petrol side of things is not so good. I have no specific details though.
My mum, closing in on 70 & arthritis in all 4 limbs had one and was happy with it, short tootles, cheap to run, dull and bland but did what a car needs to do. She got rid only cos the grandkids are old enough not to need booster seats so she can have something smaller to park.
It's a bit tight for me, but I won't be driving it so that's by the by.
Not.My.cup.of dried leaves in boiling water inside, but very space agey and awesomely equipped. Apart from the slightly scuffed alloys there's not a mark on it. He's one of those old boys so wipes the raindrops off before putting it away in the garage.
It.needs.a.big.noisy diseasel, a low range box and a foot or more of ground clearance before it'd interest me personally.
