Overall reliability

Comfortable mid sized hybrid but can't get anywhere near the claimed 70mpg

Just completed first 1,000 miles of ownership of the Hybrid, with majority of mileage completed on motorway trips to and from Essex - M6 Toll / M6 / M1 / M25 - 300 mile round trip. Have been 'running in' in old speak by using nearly all the time in eco mode, but have found in last few miles that the ' power' mode makes the car more liveable with in terms of performance.

This is my second Auris (after an SR180 diesel) and both cars have proved to be reliable motorway cruisers, but with both couldn't / can't get near the claimed fuel economy figures - I tend to drive as fast as motorway conditions allow? The Hybrid is currently averaging just over 52 mpg, which compare with an average of 42 mpg over a year / 17,700 miles in the SR180.

Likes:
As I've said the car is a comfortabke motorway cruiser and is fine around town, where stop start and electric power come into their own. Second Auris as was happy with the first. Takes 5 adults easily with adequate leg room in the back and haven't yet found the restricted boot space a problem. Good CVT box that changes very smoothly

Dislikes:
Can't get the Bluetooth to function properly with a Blackberry - won't actually engage?
Same with my I pod - connects OK but can only change tracks within a given artist / CD.
Engine sounds harsh when pushed.

Overall, pleased with car despite fuel consumption and will monitor and report if it improves as the drive train beds in.
