Obviously Toyota realize that things had to get better and the new model has been revised
The seat covers had to be replaced as they were bobbling after 2000 miles
Window door seals replaced as they were a very poor fit, replacements were not much better.
The alloy wheels corroded badly after 9 months even when cleaned regularly and not damaged.
I found the build quality reasonable.
The carpets were of appalling quality and only fitted where they decided to fit.
The ride was so hard that potholes had to be avoided as the car shook violently, this also gave the problem of lots of rattles and squeaks. This is what finally got to me and had to part company as it was in the garage 5 times for bad rattles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
