I picked up my new Dynamic last Wednesday only two and a half weeks after ordering.
I still can't believe it is only a 1.2T.
Still trying to learn all of the new gadgets after trading in an 11 year old RAV4.
It is really comfortable and fun to drive. Just averaged 49 mpg on a 250 mild drive round Wales.

My only concern is that it will stop me driving my immaculate Celeica T-Sport (Coupe Low Rider if you were wondering). I may end up letting it go to a lucky person after its next MOT.

Marc-B1

She is a 2005. Bought by a chap who cherished it from 1 year old as a second car and sold it to me in 2012. Being an ex machinist / engineer I believe strongly in preemptive maintenance. The only things that have broken in my 5 years is a rear spring so I changed both along with both shockers. The secondary air injection pump is also a weak spot with them.
I have spent heavily on new stainless exhaust and cat. Refurbished all wheels, New water pump and belt. New radiator and hoses. New clutch and gearbox checked. All Toyota. Resprayed front end due to stone chips. changed lift bolts. New lambda sensors.
It is my pride and joy but being part time and near retirement the new CHR will push it into second place and it will be a shame not to use it. I will decide next spring when I MOT her and the novelty of the CHR has warn off.
