Economic/comfortable/spacious.

This was 1yr old and 8000 miles. I am amazed at how much room there is for rear passengers and how quiet it can be. Our trip from Inverness down to Ipswich and 3 more days running local gave a MPG figure of 58.6. It was NOT reined in to 70mph. I drove it as I would drive my Audi A4tdi. Over the passage of time I've learnt how to get the greater economy up to 65mpg.
My "gripe" is the climate function being on screen in the middle which requires eyes off road to adjust. Not good. Since I "share" this with my wife it would be better to have the driver seat with 2 presets. All in all a very good family car that's easy on the purse and eye.
If they had kept the Lagoon blue, which is my favourite then I would certainly buy a series 3 as well to replace my ageing A4. All servicing is done by Toyota Agent. If you don't use the agent you'll probably never be able to replace the brake fluid as per schedule.
