Bought the car, and as soon as we got out of the auctions, it stopped working. We wondered at first what the flashing bar was. Turned out it ran out of petrol. No biggie.
About 161000 miles, the throttle body went (it didn't stick on, rather it didn't want to go on).
About 180000 miles, the muffler broke clean off of the pipe. Very cheap to repair.
It's a good family car. Lots of space.
The flat rear means it's easy to park.
Built by Toyota, so it feels as tight as a drum.
Obviously, this being a sort of rare car, it does have some faults.
There is a bit of wind noise.
The back makes a rattling noise a lot.
It has a lot of panel gaps. But then again, it is a cross between the Yaris hatchback and I'm guessing the Hiace van, since the front doors are identical.
On the subject of doors; for some odd reason, the front passenger door sounds really hollow. It echos when you close it.
The engine is what surprises me the most. It's a 1.3, but the Yaris Verso really doesn't have that much weight to haul about. It's a very economical and lively engine.
The seats are very easy to fold away. In about 30 seconds it's a proper van.
There is a brilliant rechargeable torch above the boot, which is great. One minute it's a normal door light, the next it's a handy emergency torch.
