Good morning all. I'm new-ish to this forum but am on my second Avensis.

I've had a 2014 Avensis Business Edition diesel and now have a 2017 Avensis Design auto petrol. In the years I've owned these I have had one puncture in each car and have been dismayed how quick the tyres wear out (<20,000 miles).

I have my home near Portsmouth in the UK but currently live and work in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 

My wife (in the UK) seems to prefer driving the Avensis to her BMW 2-series convertible. I guess that says something for how enjoyable the car is to drive, although there certainly isn't any spare power in the 1.8 petrol engine.

I'm considering getting a Camry when I get back from Saudi in late 2020. Nice cars but like the Avensis, a bit short on headroom if you're 6'2" like me. Maybe I really need a Land Cruiser 🙂

  • 213 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
