2007 Toyota Aurion SX6 3.5 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Great car, can't wait till the new model is released
One problem; minor rattling in the front wind screen. According other Aurion owners this appears to be a common fault. Took it back the dealer, who put in foam liner. The rattle is now gone.
Some may find the semi auto slow to down change, but once you are aware of when to the down change speed / rpm it is fine.
Be care with the inside plastics, as these scratch easily.
Otherwise problem free.
The 200Kw engine delivers strong and progressive acceleration, with smooth turbine transmission changes through the six speed gearbox.
Fuel consumption is surprisingly good; 8.7 - 9.9 / 100km.
Handling is good. Some may find the ride a little stiff, but this particular model is the sportier version.
No button to turn off traction control (there is a work around very long winded, but it does work).
The method below works. But you need to do it each time you start the car if you want the TC off. By default it turns back on each time you start the car.
It's a bit convoluted, but I tried it and it works.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
