2009 Toyota AYGO Platinum 1.0 from UK and Ireland
Great car, let down by poor finish
Having bought this car on its reputation for build quality, I was very surprised to find the drivers side rear carpet & carpet area under the drivers seat soaking wet. On removal of the rear mat, it was placed over a bucket, in which gathered over 1/2 inch of water. I got in contact with the dealer & was told this was a common problem, as the rubber seals around the drivers door & rear passenger door were liable to leak. Not something I wanted to hear. I am now booking it in for new seals & new carpets.
Overall the car is great apart from a hesitation when moving off from a standstill.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The Aygo is not available in our local Toyota dealer, but funnily enough, they started selling the BYD F0 this year, which I understand is a copy of this car. I would like to know if anyone in here has had the Chinese version and comment on it, since I'm planning on getting a small, economic city car, but I like it to be reliable.
