The car is generally reliable and comfortable

General Comments:

The car is very silent when running and very comfortable.

The seating position is high and lovely.

I live in a complex of town houses. In early January I saw two guests of my neighbour coming to see my Avensis. I opened the car and let them admire whatever they wanted. They left very impressed with the features including the electric seats. They were driving a new VW Jetta which they had just packed.

I have travelled with the car from South Africa to Malawi across Zimbabwe, and Mozambique; a journey of 7800 km and never had to add a drop of water or oil. Recently I took a tour of the garden route and my my car continued performing wonderfully.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
